Time for TV Tuesday #2

**Someone had asked me why I don't discuss the shows that I watch since I seem to watch more TV compared to movies. This is an excellent question. Well...I will be doing this weekly Tuesday post sharing what I watching and some of my thoughts. Of course, I highly encourage sharing what you are watching too!!**

Most Recently Finished: 

I just finished the first season of this. This show follows the Medici family during Cosimo's "reign" over his banker family in the 15th century. 

The show started a little slow and just okay. The characters were decent even though it bugged me how the older characters like Cosimo is supposed to be 40s-50s but they looks like they are in their 20s-30s with fake grey hair sprinkled on. Like really? Cast older people. SURE I find Cosimo and his brother smexy, but it is so young looking. 

Like other shows, the historical accuracy is off. However, it wasn't horrible like some unmentionable shows (*cough* Reign *cough*). Some historical inaccuracies, just enough on point where it wasn't gag-worthy. 

WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN TO YOUR WIFE COSIMOOO!!! Ugh! So frustrating. I get his annoyance at being forced to marry her, but she has DONE SO MUCH FOR HIM! BLEH! 

Sorry - 

After episode four, the show got really good and couldn't stop watching. They ended on an interesting note and I am curious to see what is going to happen next. I can't wait for season 2 to come out. I may need to read some books to hold me over until then. LOL.  I do recommend this those who like a pretty good historical fiction. I'll give this 4 stars. 

Currently Watching: 
TURN: Washington's Spies (Season 3)

I watched Season 1 & Season 2 a while back, so I don't remember too much...just the main stuff. Season 3 just came to Netflix and this is my next watch. I'll be starting episode one shortly. 

I do remember Season 2 left off on a HUGE cliff-hanger and had big expectation....*fingers crossed* hopefully this is just as good as the last season. Season 1 was meh....so I am worried. Wish me luck.
