On Tuesday June 27th 2017, Pretty Little Liars will finally bid adieu. And I say “finally” because I feel like I can’t remember my life before the show. What was once a fun guilty pleasure and then an all-out TV obsession has long since turned into an obligation of sorts – I just need to know how it ends. I’m a bitter-ender, damnit!
At some point TBS quietly amassed a solid line-up of original programming. No longer just the home for reruns of Family Guy and The Big Bang Theory, TBS currently boasts a late night talk show, a weekly news satire program, an array of live action single cam comedies, and more.

I’ll be honest, I tried to write this blog last year, but for whatever reason I just couldn’t get my thoughts to make sense on paper. I’m sure Hannah would understand. But hey, no time like the present, right? The sixth and final season of Girls premieres on Sunday February 12th at 10pm. And I for one and looking forward to the show’s last chapter.
I’ve already written about my favorite TV and pop culture podcasts, twice in fact. (Here’s five more podcasts I recommend.) But what can I say, there’s a lot of content out that and I listen to a lot of podcasts. So here’s three more you should give a listen.
