I thought it might be fun to do something a little different and talk about what we all do, well, most of us any ways. You know what I'm talking about, binge watching. Oh that evil Netflix and it's ways of luring us in with (what seems like) unlimited seasons of TV shows we've never watched before or old favorites we want to live all over again. You know what I'm talking about.
Those shows that suck up our time and completely hook us. We all do it and once in awhile, we even need it. Just to get away into fantasy land with no worries, no troubles, and just escape with mindless entertainment.
Summer is my favorite time of year to do this because even though I love being outside during the day and playing with my kids and reading, at night is always all about TV, especially staying up late into the night and then being able to actually sleep in in the mornings.
So with that said, what in the world are you planning on binge watching this summer?
It occurred to me (as all my favorite fall shows will be off the air soon), I need something new to watch. Either new to me or actually new to Netflix/Hulu so give it to me. What are your favorites, what do you plan on watching and most importantly, what do you recommend?
What I love about this blogging community is that not only do most of us love the same genres and authors, but we tend to love the same movies and shows too and it is so much fun to talk about all of them.
So with that being said, just to get an idea of what I do watch, here are a few of my favorites lately:
Supernatural. I mean come on, what is there not to love about Sam and Dean?
A new one for me but one I've been loving, Man in the High Castle. I love this era and to see this weird twist on what happened during it has been so much fun. Be warned for you moms out there, it is TV-MA because it does have language so be aware of that when having little ones in the room.
I'm so sad this show is over but I loved every single season of it and it was so much fun to watch. I definitely love the supernatural world, both in my books and my TV shows apparently.
This show was an unexpected one for me. I wasn't even sure I was going to watch it but so many people were and once I started I knew why, this freaking show pulls at the heart strings. I have yet to see an episode that didn't either make me cry or bring tears to my eyes.
We started watching Psych when it first aired and faithfully watched it every week. When Netflix showed it a couple of summers ago, we started watching it again with my kids and they too were hooked on it. I'm so sad it won't be on Netflix this summer and with the movie coming out in December, I'm hoping they will add it on there again. I love this show, it is just so funny. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it, Shawn and Gus are the perfect example of a bro-romance that works.
I'm not caught up on this show yet so I will be watching it this summer to catch up but I thought I better throw it in the mix too in case some of you have something else close to it that you recommend. This is another one of my favorite time periods and I love it. I did try Downton Abbey and didn't like it, too soap opera-ish for me but any other recommendations I would absolutely love to have!
Some other shows I've watched and really like are: Sherlock, Bitten, Haven, Castle, Lizzy Borden, iZombie, The Walking Dead, American Housewife, Timeless, Charmed (still watching this one), Buffy (although I never finished this either), Gilmore Girls, Golden Girls (don't laugh, this show is so funny! I love Sophia). Hopefully that gives you an idea of what to recommend. ;)
