The [selective] couch potato in me. - The Multi-Hobbyist

The [selective] couch potato in me.




Being a couch potato doesn't really mean you have to watch on a real television because nowadays, you can watch your favorite TV series on your laptop, tablet, and smartphone anytime, anywhere!

Okay, so I'm a selective couch potato. Selective, meaning, I only love watching TV series that suits my preferred genre which is mainly rom-com (romantic-comedy) or at least anything where I can learn something useful.

I am drawn to romcoms because I like a feel-good kind of thing to watch at the end of a stressful day; one that can make me laugh and kilig at times (but not too much), with light drama but should always have a feminine feel to it (because I'd like to believe I'm a feminist. Haha).

Actually, I even like watching series that are not related to those I previously mentioned, but, it should not be too heavy/intense and is unique (like Mr. Robot!). I'm not a fan of horror/thriller, suspense, and gore-y too. I mean, I already had enough stress for the day, right?

So just to give you an idea, below are a list of TV series I watched. I only started watching US TV series after college though.
