Whether you’ve been married for years or you just started dating, sometimes a night in is just what the doctor ordered. Throw kids into the mix, and a night in may be all you’ve got going on. While there are many ways to have some fun and change it up, sometimes all you want to do is get off your feet, order some take-out and relax together. So here are five shows my hubby and I love that you and your hunny can enjoy together after a long day.

1. The Good Place

The Good Place is our newest show to watch together. I actually started watching it alone, but Ryan expressed interest based on what he saw as he walked in and out of the room while it was on. This show is so creative! And who doesn’t love Kristen Bell?! She is a true original, as is this show. The first season will keep you on your toes and will definitely leave you wanting more.
I can’t speak for the following seasons yet, as we are just getting into it. Let me know what you think in the comments, but no spoilers, please. πŸ˜‰

2. That 70s Show

With 8 seasons, this show lasted us a while. It offered light-hearted humor with just enough “drama” to keep the story interesting. I always consider show-choices a success when my husband laughs, and this one kept us both laughing out loud. I will say, if references to marijuana bother you, this may not be the show for you. While we don’t partake in this particular activity in our home, we were still able to enjoy the related humor.

3. Blue Bloods

If you’re looking for something more in the drama genre, Blue Bloods is a great choice. There’s action, suspense, and of course… Tom Selleck πŸ˜‰ . That mustache steals the show! I also love that the Reagans are a Catholic family, so every episode incorporates the family sharing a meal and saying grace (something we value in our home).
Blue Bloods is still airing new episodes, so if you’re looking for a show that will last you a while, this is a perfect choice.

4. We Bare Bears

While this show definitely won’t be for everyone, if you’ve got any appreciation for childish humor, give We Bare Bears a chance. Ryan actually introduced me to this show after he was out with some friends for sushi and it was playing at the restaurant. Apparently the whole table of grown men couldn’t help but get sucked in to this “children’s” show.
I used quotation marks because, to be honest with you, I don’t know that this is a show I’d leave Harley watching without some parental guidance. While it is completely absent of anything inappropriate, it does teach some questionable lessons. For example, one episode is all about some weirdo stranger turning out to be a super chill dude.HA! Not really a lens I want my baby girl seeing the world through.

Not until she is old enough to know how to be kind to strangers, but also be safe.
Either way, if you can appreciate some G-rated comedy, give this unexpected show a try. It may pleasantly surprise you.

5. Nailed It!

Last, but certainly not least, we have Nailed It! This show quickly became something we looked forward to in the evenings. We’d make ourselves some yummy dinner (sometimes taco bell…) and plop down in front of the TV to watch a couple episodes of Nailed It! The whole vibe of the show is silliness and a lack of perfection, which is nice after a long day of being on your A-Game at work.
Even though I’m not a fan of her stand-up comedy, Nicole Byer rocks it as the host of the show. She’s loud and hilarious.
The professionally baked creations are extremely impressive, which makes it all the more fun to see how big the fails are by the contestants. I warn you though, nine times out of ten… you’ll probably end up making some cookies or some other sweet treat while you watch. Yum!

So go grab your favorite blanket, a bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine, then kick back and relax. But not before sharing your favorite shows to watch together down in the comments! πŸ˜‰


  1. Me and Mike got hooked on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I can honestly say it became one of my all time favorite shows for sure. It does have some bad language though so I wouldn’t watch it with Harley around but also, give it several episodes to pick up. It’s a little slow at first but then it gets sooooo good! πŸ˜‰

  2. We have been loving the Hart of Dixie lately! I believe it’s been around for a while but it’s new to us and there are several seasons on Netflix.
