Deployment, Military Life

23 MORE Shows to Watch During Deployment

Two weeks ago, I published 20 Shows to Watch During Deployment. That post got so much attention, that I decided to make another with 23 more shows to watch during deployment.

It may seem like I’m the Queen of Lazy, watching all of these shows. But I’ve had nearly 9 years of random TDYs, 2 hardship tours, and plenty of CQ/Staff Duty nights. Turning the tv on and wrapping up in a soft blanket on the couch has been therapeutic for me after many lonely and stressful days. It’s nice to zone out in front of the tv and focus on someone else’s fictional problems.

So, here are 23 more shows that are perfect for binge-watching during deployment. [Sidenote: The brief descriptions I’ve provided were borrowed from imdb.com.]
