Expressing your love and being cute is year-round work, but February, the month of love, is the time to kick it up a notch. Miss Geller and Miss Green allowed our lovely GBMs to do just that. For singles that want to kill time and the lovebirds looking for a show to binge-watch with their better halves, Team Editorial, with the help of our gifted GBMs, has something special in store just for you.
“It’s okay to love them both” is something that fascinates me about Katherine Pierce. The show focuses on vampires, love, and death, which offers a lot of delectable drama. This is especially true when Katherine rolls into town. The lives of the characters are filled with love, danger, and disaster living in the town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. Creatures of unspeakable horror lurk beneath this town as a teenage girl is suddenly torn between two vampire brothers.

“So, where to begin?” “Haa! title of your sex tape.” It’s a classic Jake Peralta line to say now, isn’t it? messing around with Amy, being best buddies with Boyle, and cringing at everything Hitchcock and Skully did. It’s a cacophonous comedy with bizarre characters that are relatable and yet, at the same time, not, and is an absolute delight to binge. If you haven’t already guessed, it’s Brooklyn 99! Streaming on Netflix and various pirated websites, you can easily find it to end your day with a cheerful mind. Signing off with… “Shhh, not a doctor.”

My favorite Web show would be The Office; it’s on Amazon Prime Video. When I first started to watch The Office, it wasn’t the most interesting show; it has 9 seasons, with season 1 having 6 episodes and the rest of the seasons having 20+ episodes. There was one character, though, who kept me interested in the show: Michael Scott. He was the regional manager at his office. His humor was very advanced for a 2,000s’ show; it was not for everyone. If he was in a particular situation, it would almost always go south; he would mess it up, and how he worked through it would be unique and funny. He also cared a lot about his employees; he treated them like family and was involved in their in-jokes. He also secretly had a crush on an intern named Ryan, which looked silly back then but also tells us how open-minded Michael is about the LGBTQIA community. The show would unfortunately now get canceled because it was sexist and racist at times, but I still loved the show; it’s my comfort show.

There are many shows that I’ve watched over the past few years, and every show is great in its way. A lot of them have been among my favorites, but the one that I would want to watch over and over again would be “TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE.” The series is amazing, and it’s a teen drama. I chose this because it showcases the real problems, struggles, and dramas of a teen. The show is about a girl who wrote letters in the past to her crushes but kept them with her; one fine day, out of nowhere, her letters are posted to the respective boys she has had crushes on. One is already in her school: the cute and popular guy who is already dating her. You know everyone around you drools over the popular hot heartthrob. So, he confronts her after knowing this, and the guys have already broken up because of some reason, and then the heartthrob and our innocent simple girl get close with time and start fake dating to make the boy’s ex-girlfriend jealous, and eventually, while doing this, they fall in love and start dating, which then starts her real journey when her ex-crushes start showing up after receiving the letters, not knowing it was just a childhood crush and letters.

HIMYM, aka How I Met Your Mother, is one of my all-time favorite shows. To be honest, I’m kind of in a toxic relationship with it. We had it for a long time, and now I can’t move on from it, lol. I love the characters and how these people from different backgrounds are friends and have almost formed a family. The main character is Ted. Teddy Boy is my favorite, and I also greatly relate to him. Life is super messy and confusing, but hope, belief, and friends—and some beer, okay, no, a lot of beer—can make it a legend… Wait for it… dary! LEGENDARY. Ted kind of gives hope to all of us hopeless romantics that one day we will find “the one” after all the wrong ones, heartbreaks, and mistakes. When he or she enters, everything connects. Every path you took was leading you towards them—toward the love of your life. Ted met the love of his life at 35, so I guess I’ve still got some time left. So here I am looking for someone to binge-watch this show again with, laugh together, and fall in love with, because why shouldn’t a person get to say that? Prof. Ted Mosby taught me to take the chance, take the leap, and go tell them what I feel. Get them that blue French horn, because you never know what the future brings. Maybe you’ve come to the end of your search.
