It’s LET’S LOOK!!!
Once a month, Erika and I host a link up where we “look” at little aspects of our lives. If you’re a blogger, make sure you blog and link up!
Here’s what we’ve been “looking” at so far this year…
In January, we looked at the coziest spots in our house
In February, we looked at our favorite reads
In March, we looked at the people in our family!
In April, we looked at our pantries!
In May, we looked at our favorite #OOTD
In June, we looked inside our suitcase
In July, we looked at a day in the life of us.
And today, we’re looking at our favorite binge worthy shows!
I mean…this is a topic I can really get behind.
Here’s the thing, I love to have a show to watch while I do some of those menial tasks around the house (folding laundry, unloading the dishwasher, eating breakfast/lunch by myself, etc.). I always watch these shows on my phone and catch a few minutes here and there. Over time, I’ll finish a whole season. Andrew and I used to binge shows together, but it feels like lately, he binges what he likes, I binge what I like (when we’re both doing random stuff) and then we watch other shows on TV together that aren’t necessarily “binged”. So, this is how I binge. The pro, it’s super convenient, the con, I’ve never, ever, ever watched many of these series on an actual TV. For instance, Andrew is horrified that I’ve never seen a single minute of Game of Thrones on the actual TV (just my phone).
Thanks to Netflix and Amazon Prime, these days, most of my shows come from there. First up, I’m going to share shows that I’ve actually “binged” and not watched while they were in progress and then, I’ll share shows I watched in progress that you could now binge if you so desired (make sense?). My very first show to ever “binge” watch was 24 (greatness!), so clearly, this list goes way back (Andrew and I lived in an apartment in Irving during that time, so it was like 14 years ago!).
My favorite shows that I’ve ever binge-watched (in order of how much I loved them…but honestly, I love all of them!!). Some of these shows are still making new seasons, but I’ve binged at least as far as I could until further seasons are dropped:
The Good Wife
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Grace and Frankie
One Tree Hill
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some! But those are the ones that come to mind first. I quit Grey’s Anatomy midway through season 7. I just couldn’t anymore, y’all. I’ve started many and watched a season or two and then stopped, but those listed above, I saw through to the very end!
Now, here are shows that are totally binge-worthy, but I didn’t binge them (I watched them while they were on TV)…
King of Queens
Sex and the City
Everybody Loves Raymond
I probably forgot some of those too, but I’m sure you’ll jog my memory!
Okay…whew…those are my favorite binge-worthy shows! Now, I’m slowlllllllly working my way through Game of Thrones and will finish it…but, I am already looking forward to my next series. WHAT SHOULD IT BE??? I’m begging you…it needs to be light/funny/not Game of Thrones-ish. Please!
Also, I watched the first episode of Outlander and didn’t love it. My parents and Brooke both tell me to keep watching because it’s amazing.
They also loved Game of Thrones.
So, please don’t suggest Outlander to me today 😉 .
(Brooke is going to text me now and tell me I’m wrong.)
Also, who uses Britt Box? I’ve heard about it and it intrigues me, but I’d love feedback from one of you.
Next month, we’re going to be looking at OUR CALENDAR! But this month, let’s talk TV 🙂 . Comment and share!
