What Your Favorite Character Says About Your Productivity

Certain characters always seem to stick with us. Beyond the quirky characteristics and clever one-liners, our favorite TV characters can reveal more about our personalities than we might think. For me — I tend to be drawn to the characters who are overachievers, organizers and outspoken.  Hmm…now that I think about it — I admire all of those skills.

So what do your favorite characters say about your productivity?

Dexter Morgan from Dexter:  Everyone’s favorite serial killer is dedicated to details.  Each and every episode he tirelessly plans every single nuance of his latest kill. It sounds morbid and like something that I would hate but I was hooked on the series immediately.  If Dexter is your type of character you probably have a very organized closet and your morning routine is the same everyday, down to the minute.

List of TV Shows Based on Books

9781476735481If one of your favorite books has ever been made into a movie, you’ve been in that uncomfortable state of great anticipation. Part of you can’t wait for the movie to come out, and to see the book come to life. But part of you wants it never to come out, so that the story will remain untainted by Hollywood — when the movie version ruins the story is just the worst! Like with The Other Boleyn Girl: Loved the book, lukewarm on the movie.

Recently — books are being adapted into TV shows, too. In some ways, I think this works a little better, especially for book series — there’s less pressure to fit everything in a 90 minute movie. So, of course, I made a list of TV shows based on books that you might want to check out! If you don’t have any TV streaming subscriptions, you could always see if you can find any of these TV shows on a proxy site like pirateproxy, for example. These websites allow you to download the latest movies and TV shows on to your devices, so hopefully you will be able to find these shows to watch. Who knows, you might even be able to find some shows that you haven’t seen before, and you might even want to read the books afterwards if you enjoy them that much! Out of this list, which ones are your favorites?
  • The White Queen
  • Sex and the City
  • Game of Thrones
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Bones
  • Gossip Girl
  • True Blood
  • Dexter
  • Vampire Diaries
  • Sherlock
  • House of Cards
  • Pretty Little Liars

List of Must-Watch TV Shows

Breaking Bad (season 2)

I’ve literally been glued to my TV for weeks watching Breaking Bad on Netflix.

Each night Jay and I would watch a few episodes and we are finally all caught up and excited for the series finale in August. The writing and the characters are superb. If you don’t watch it — you need to!

Summer can be a great time to indulge a little and catch up any TV episodes you missed last season or discover your new favorite show. Access to old TV shows has never been easier — with the amount of streaming videos available online, a marathon of your favorite series can be just a few clicks away.
And the best part is, you don’t need to sit through commercials or wait through the end-of-the-season cliffhangers — its all right there for you to watch when you want. (That’s one of my favorite parts about watching an old show. All the episodes are already out!) So break out the popcorn and get cozy on your couch!
Set aside some time this summer to relax and unwind. Here’s my list of TV shows to give a try:
  1. Breaking Bad (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video)
  2. Homeland (Amazon Instant Video, Showtime Online, iTunes)
  3. Downton Abby (Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus)
  4. The Sopranos (HBO Go, HBO on Demand)
  5. Lost (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus)
  6. Grey’s Anatomy (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus)
