I thought it would be fun to do something a bit different today. Most of us, while avid readers are also avid Netflix addicts and with summer literally right around the corner I thought it would be fun to see what everyone plans on binge watching this summer. Any big plans?
Plus, okay in all honesty, with all my favorite fall shows going on hiatus for a few months, I desperately need something to watch so I want to hear what your favorites are and what you recommend as well as what you will be binge watching this summer.
As much as I love reading, I sometimes need a good TV show to get me out of a slump or just because I need a *gasp* break from reading for a bit. So bring on the recs!
First though, here are some of my most favorite shows I watch and those that I've already binge watched on Netflix or Hulu and absolutely loved.
One of my most favorite TV shows to date is Supernatural. I only discovered this series about two years ago and after watching the first season seriously couldn't figure out what the big deal was. I mean, I liked it but I wasn't in love...yet. It wasn't until season two that I was completely hooked. It only took me a summer (I should be embarrassed by this but I'm not) to catch up with it (8 seasons at the time) and eagerly await each new episode each week. I hate it when it goes on hiatus because I truly do miss Sam and Dean and their witty one liners.
I started watching this show on a fluke and while it can be cheesy I absolutely love it. There is just something about it.
Seriously zombies were never my thing, that is until I started watching this show and as gross as it can be (seriously, some of the scenes turn by stomach) I am weirdly fascinated by it and completely hooked. It is probably the grossest show I watch.
I'm definitely starting to see a theme here with my show watching. What can I say, I love the paranormal side of things!
I've had fun with this TV series but with the ending to the latest season, I'm not sure I will be continuing with it. I just don't think it will be the same (fans know what I am talking about).
And my latest and newest TV series that I was hooked one is this one. I can't believe how I love the sass that comes out of this man's mouth.
This series is only on it's second season but I just started watching it and am weirdly drawn to it. There is just something about it that I like. I won't lie, it can be downright cheesy at times but still, it keeps me watching.
Sadly this series was just cancelled after 8 seasons but I've been a fan of it since the beginning. Nathan Fillion is so freaking funny and I just adored his character on this show. I'm sad to see it over but happy with the way it ended.
So yeah, there you have it. Those are the shows that I'm currently watching and loving that are still on air.
Here are a few others that I didn't even know existed or at least never tried, until Netflix corrupted me and I learned what binge watching a series was all about.
I think there were only four seasons of this series but they were all good and I believe it was the first TV series that I ever binge watched as well. It was pretty addicting.
I can't even begin to express my love for this TV series. I had no idea you could have a TV hangover until I got to the last season and then the last episode of this series. I was heartbroken that it was all over.
This is still one of my top ten favorites.
Another series that I was heartbroken when I came to the last episode. I was so not ready for this to be over. I loved Veronica and her dad, they were such an amazing team and I loved their relationship. I watched the movie and while it was good, it just wasn't the same.
This TV series is just terrifying and has made me so paranoid now but I love it anyways and while it is still active, I haven't watched the latest season because Netflix doesn't have it yet. I'm hoping like heck they get it this summer.
So there you have it. Shows I've watched in their entirety (to date) and have loved like crazy.
Other shows that are on Netflix now but I watched when they were actually airing and loved and would highly recommend include these:
(miss these two like crazy and I keep hoping they will do something together again)
(I wish this would pick back up again! I keep waiting and it keeps getting pushed back every year :( )
(this one goes off and on all the time on Netflix, right now I currently think it is off but once in awhile they will put it back on there so if you want to watch it, search for it periodically.)
I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting but this is all I can think of off the top of my head (like I need to add more right? I'm starting to think I watch way too much TV).
Anyways, with these shows in mind, anyone have anything similar that they watch that I could start over the summer? They don't have to necessarily be ones that are competed but I would like them to have at least a few seasons so I'm not stuck only watching one season and then having to wait for the others and left with nothing else to watch again.
Also, I love historical movies and classics (believe it or not based on that list up there). And am pretty open to a lot of things as long as it isn't rated X or anything. ;)
Oh and I should add that I'm up for older shows as well (think 90's). I tried Dawson Creek, Kyle XY, Buffy, and Roswell but while I liked them, I didn't like them enough to even get through the whole first season of them (besides Buffy, I did watch almost three seasons of it but after awhile I got tired of it). Oh and The Librarians, I really wanted to like this one but the two episodes that I watched were so cheesy I didn't watch any others. If they get better then let me know and I will try again. ;)
I've heard Parenthood is really good and I've seen most of Friends off and on through the years and thought about starting from the beginning with them both but, I don't know, they aren't grabbing me right now and I feel stuck on what to do. Help me you guys, I need suggestions.
What are some of your favorites and ones you absolutely were heartbroken over when they were done or ones you eagerly await each week for the new episode to air?
