      Where to Watch March Madness 2019

      Posted by Alley Dornbach on Mar 18, 2019 1:02:36 PM

      IT’S MARCH. IT’S MADNESS. It’s time for March Madness. Are you ready? We definitely are. That is why we have put together an official guide to March Madness including printable brackets, where to find games, important dates and channel guide.

      March Madness is a time to watch the 68-team basketball bonanza unfold. It is arguably the most exciting playoffs because fans are able to control their brackets and the atmosphere is unlike anything else. It's also entertaining to make your brackets using a mix of logic and randomness to try to predict the 68-team bracket all the way through. Mastering the perfect college basketball bracket is not easy but if you do manage to come close, some March Madness bracket websites offer cash prizes. Even if it is not possible, it still is extremely fun!

      What To Watch On TV for Valentine's Day

      Posted by Alley Dornbach on Feb 8, 2019 3:00:00 PM

      Valentine's Day is almost here and that means romantic movies will be filling your TV screens. Romantic Comedies (Rom Com for short) are always entertaining especially when you are looking for a movie with a romantic story line but will also make you smile, laugh and sometimes cry. Rather than searching through your channels to find the best Valentine's Day themed TV shows and movies, I have put together a list of where you can find them. So grab your favorite blanket, some heart shaped candies, your snuggle buddy and maybe some wine to watch the love stories unfold.  

      All Your Favorite Rom Coms:

      Hallmark Channel:
      Hallmark is the best for when you need a cheesy romantic comedy full of love and drama while you sit on your couch eating candy and trying to guess what flavor chocolate square you just ate. This year, Hallmark is on top of their game with a mix of new original movies and a few of the classic love stories everyone knows.

      Best Super Bowl Commercials for 2019

      Posted by Alley Dornbach on Feb 4, 2019 5:15:00 PM

      “Okurrrrrt” It’s the day after the Super Bowl LIII and by now you should know the New England Patriots beat the L.A. Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. You should also know that the game was not the most exciting and it was actually the lowest scoring Super Bowl game in history. The halftime show featured Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and SpongeBob SquarePants. That’s right. SpongeBob. Many fans begged to have the song “Sweet Victory” featured after SpongeBob’s creator/animator Stephen Hillenburg, passed away last year. SpongeBob did make a small cameo right before Travis Scott’s performance. The game finished with the Patriots winning and Tom Brady taking home another Super Bowl victory.

      Best Original Shows to Stream on Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime

      Posted by Alley Dornbach on Jan 22, 2019 10:45:41 AM

      This time of year is perfect for streaming Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime Video. The cold air mixed with the short days makes a perfect combination for binge watching your favorite shows. Once I get the time to actually sit down and get comfortable, I am always asking myself “What do I want to watch?”  This starts a long process of me clicking through all the options and flipping back and forth from Netflix to Prime, Prime to Hulu, and Hulu back to Netflix. Sometimes it feels like it takes more time to look up a good show or movie to watch than it actually takes to watch the show.
