    1. Ok, question! I have seen people mention Bunheads several times lately! How old is an appropriate age to watch it?! I have a daughter that dances, but I'm not sure if it's appropriate for a tween!


    2. This is such an excellent list! Now that 2015 has started, I should keep track of what I watch this year :)

      It's been such a long time since I've seen Eagle vs. Shark...I'll have to rewatch it one of these days.

      For Halloween this year, I'm going to be Louise (though secretly I'm actually Tina).

    3. Louise would be such a fun costume! She's hilarious. I think I'm Tina too.

      I love weird, quirky movies like Eagle vs Shark. There is just something different about them that make me like them.

      I think I started my TV & Movie list in 2012. One of these days I might just have to make an entire spreadsheet. It's really fun to go back and see what I've spent my time on.

    4. I would say 11 or 12 is a good age. It's pretty family friendly. There are some teen-drama scenarios like drinking and smoking but I think overall the morals and lessons outweigh that. They discuss body image issues, goals, and perseverance. If you do end up watching it - let me know what you think!

    5. The fact that you kept up with all of the TV shows and movies that you watched in 2014 in absolutely incredible! I wish I would've done the same. The Fault in Our Stars was one of my favorite movies of the year. Gosh - it was just so good! And it definitely did the book justice. I didn't hate The Giver, but I didn't think it was the best movie in the world. I'd say 3 out of 5. Don't get me started on the ending of HIMYM! Ugh! 9 seasons, and that's what they were leading up to? WHY?! Orange is the New Black is definitely overrated. I got into it toward the end of the first season, but I barely got through the second season. Nothing happened. I don't know that I'll be watching it again if they make more episodes. Supernatural and Bates Motel - two of my favorite shows. Jon and I are going to Supernatural Con in Houston in two weeks! Can't. Freaking. Wait.

    6. I've kept up with all of my TV/Movies for about 3 years now. It's fun to see. I loved The Fault in Our Stars. Did the book justice. I'm not quite sure how I feel about Bates Motel yet...still iffy. You better put tons of pictures up of Supernatural Con. I want to see what I'm (unfortunately) missing.
