This winter/spring TV season has brought some pretty good new TV shows. Here's what I'm watching.
Secrets and Lies - I started watching for Ryan Phillipe and stayed for the story. The main character is suspected of killing a young neighbor and the plot twists and turns each week. It's one of those shows where the characters infuriate you and you want to punch them in the face (a testament to good acting) but you need to know what's happening so you put up with the anger to find out what's going on.
Airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC
The Returned - I randomly came across this show late at night and within 10 minutes had cold chills. People who have died are coming back and it's a huge mystery. Each week a new story plays out, but they are all connected in a way that we're yet to learn. I binge watched episodes On Demand so you can catch up the same way if interested.
Airs Mondays at 10pm on A&E
Younger - I didn't have high hopes but started watching because I adore Hilary Duff. I was pleasantly surprised, though! It's really cute and funny. A woman goes back to work after raising her daughter and finds that her age is a hindrance - so she creates a new, younger persona. The show is only two weeks in but is sure to be full of shenanigans.
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on TVland
Battle Creek - Josh Duhamel. Do you need anything else? It's not the best show on TV, but again, Josh Duhamel. It's entertaining enough to keep me coming back each week. If you like detective shows and comedy, you may like it. And it's the type of show that you can pick up at any time without feeling lost. Give it a shot, for Josh!
Airs Sunday at 10pm on CBS
The Lizzie Borden Chronicles - This is the only show I'm not quite sure of yet since it just premiered Sunday. Picking up where the Lifetime movie left off, we get a fictional look at life for Lizzie Borden after she was acquitted of killing her father and step-mother with an axe. The first episode was OK so I'll give it another shot this weekend and see if I like it.
Airs Sundays at 10pm on Lifetime
This next show isn't new, but it's new to me and my favorite on TV right now...
Impractical Jokers - this show is in it's fourth season but I just recently discovered it and am obsessed! I legit have had an asthma attack from laughing so hard while watching. Four guys dare each other to do embarrassing things in public and it's hilarious. If you haven't seen it, find an episode ASAP! Reruns are on all the time and I'm so addicted I'll watch the same ones over and over.

Can I get an amen?!
