Summer TV Marathon's Sure to Entertain

To end this weeks feature THE RIGHT WAY TO AN EPIC SUMMER, here are some of my favorite TV shows, sure they were all cancelled but not for good reason. All had extremely high ratings just not high enough for networks these days. Each of these series are available to stream on either Netflix or Amazon Prime.




Bunheads
This series was created by the gal that introduced us to Gilmore Girls. It's very similar but different because the character is new to town rathe than comfortable like in Gilmore Girls. Unfortunately it only lasted one season but it's so worth watching.

AVAILABLE ON AMAZON PRIME






Veronica Mars
I was addicted to this show during the spring. I Had the little intro song for the show constantly playing in my head. A teen girl detective in high school seems a bit far fetched but Kristen Bell makes it 100% believable. Watch this series then when you are devastated that it was canceled you can see how it all worked out and rent the Veronica Mars movie. Be sure to have tissue near by during the second season finale because it's a major tear jerker.
SORRY NO TRAILER :(

Pushing Daisies
This show is ADORABLE! It's narrated Harry Potter style and visually amazing. Kristen Chenoweth even got an Emmy for her role in this series just after it was cancelled. I just don't get why great shows like this get cancelled even after they win awards and have massive viewers. At least this show gets an ending so you'll feel satisfied at the end but no that it still had possibilities.

AVAILABLE ON AMAZON PRIME







THE SECRET CIRCLE
This is based on the books by L.J. Smith, so if you're missing Vampire Diaries this will help. It only lasted one season but it's worth the amount of drama packed into it. A lot of famous faces in this one too. I didn't want to watch this show at first because I was dedicated to Vampire Diaries, after giving it a chance I was so sad it was cancelled.
AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX







Roswell
This show is for all the science fiction junkies. I own this box set and even though it was cancelled after three seasons, the writers were able to close out the show beautifully. Surprisingly I learned this week that the series was based off a teen book series called Roswell High.

AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX & AMAZON PRIME





Kyle XY
Another show for science fiction fans. But don't start predicting Kyle's story just yet. This show surprised me the entire time watching it. The writing was excellent and lasted three seasons until a little show called The Secret Life of an American Teenager came along and won the ratings war. And yeah that's the girl from Thor in the show.

AVAILABLE ON NETFLIX






Daria
La, la, la, la, la is the intro tune to this hilarious animated series that I wish was my text tone. Even though this series was aired back in 1997 it is timeless with it's high level of sarcasm. I love this show to death and think it's perfect for any summer marathon with friends. It reminds me of how me and my best friend are, we are super sarcastic with each other and often whoever sits with us during a convo can't help but laugh at what we consider normal behavior.
AVAILABLE ON AMAZON PRIME 

(couldn't find a trailer for this one but enjoy these hilarious quotes)
