As a mom of 5, sitting down and watching tv whenever I want is not an option. With all of our running around, I’m rarely home to enjoy Primetime TV every night. And 99% of the time, I forget to set the DVR before I leave the house.
Now when I forget, it’s no big deal! I’ve found something even better than my DVR. It’s Fancast, and it’s “Fancastic”! (Like my clever little play on words?)

My Review of Fancast
The One2One Network invited me to join in on a blog tour featuring Fancast. Prior to their email, I hadn’t heard of Fancast. But a website that will allow me to watch the shows that I want to watch on my own time sounds like it’s right up my alley! I really wish I’d found out about Fancast earlier – especially during the time when we didn’t have tv! I could have kept up with all my favorite shows any time I wanted to.
There are several things I love about Fancast:
- Besides having the brand new episodes of my favorite shows – like Bones, Survivor: Samoa, Medium, and Monk – they also have full episodes of some of my favorite shows from way back when – like Growing Pains, Alf, Family Ties, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. Plus, they even have cartoons that I watched as a kid that I can share with my kids. I almost flipped when I saw they had a Rocky & Bullwinkle video on there!
- The show titles can easily be searched by letter, network, or by genre. It’s really easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
- Fancast doesn’t just show tv shows. The site will have you on information overload and loving every minute of it! There are movies to watch, news and gossip, trailers, blogs, q&a with the stars, and so much more. There’s even a store if you’d like to buy your favorite movies to have forever!
- Fancast is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That means I can watch what I want when I want. Or when I can! If Parker’s up late, and there’s nothing on tv, I head to Fancast to catch up on an episode I missed or relive the good old days with a good old-fashioned rerun.
The only thing I would suggest to Fancast would be to add even more of the good old shows. I’d love to watch the old episodes of The Patty Duke Show and the Donna Reed Show that I used to watch late at night on Nick at Nite. And, PLEASE add in the new episodes of The Amazing Race!
I have had a ball on Fancast, and I’m certain that you’re going to love it too. Head on over to Fancast and find out what you’ve been missing! It’s free, so you haven’t got a thing to lose!
