Sunday Binge Watching


If you're reading this post then I'm going to assume that I've lured you in with the potential supplying of a good TV fix - and you'd be right! I'm definitely the type of person who loves a good binge - and yes, I'm also referring to the contents of my cupboards - and I can handle hours on end of a good boxset - although, I promise, I do venture outdoors sometimes ;)
For me, Sunday's are the perfect day to play catch up, so I thought I'd share with you the television series that I have previously binged on, or am currently watching on the regular. 

  • Girls. I didn't start watching Girls until last year, and I'm so glad I waited for a few seasons to be released before pressing play on Season 1 EP 1. For, I went crazy. This series perfectly captures the no man's land of most peoples lives whilst rocking their 20's. The timeline of the series can be a little hard to grasp at first, sometimes episodes are set within days of each other, other times weeks or months can have passed between two episodes with little explanation of why things have suddenly changed, or where they're all at. However, every time I watch an episode, it's pretty much like watching real life and catching up with your girlfriends! 
  • Orange is The New Black. This Netflix original time is awesome. Kind of like the US version of 'Bad Girls'? (aha!) and I watched The 1st & 2nd Season super quick. Now waiting on Season 3... Goodbye daylight, for 2 days, at least.
  • 2 Broke Girls. Isn't Kat Dennings just a babe? These 2BG, living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - Max, ballsy and broke. Caroline, recently broke after a scandal involving her rich father - strike an unlikely friendship and aim for success by starting a business, all whilst working nights in a diner.
  • The Vampire Diaries. I started watching TVD when I was a teen and it's my guilty pleasure. A few years back when it ran on TV it was always in fits and starts - but I've stuck with it! But to be honest, it's all about Ian Somerhalder - am I right? (No? Just me...)
  • The Walking Dead. Post apocalyptic zombie drama that has me hooked. Every week I'm scrunched up in bed on the edge of a breakdown - such drama. Also, Daryl is the man - right? Who's you're favourite character?
  • Gotham. Any OC fans out there? Then you have to watch Gotham. Ben Mckenzie plays the role of Jim Gordon in this Pre-Batman crime fighting spin off. I've never watched the whole batman trilogy, but I'm still able to follow the storyline and I think it's ace. Think along the lines of CSI...but with a huge dose of added weirdness! Adam is well versed in Batman (I think most boys are!) and he loves the show for the clever 'origins' hints that are regularly dropped - then informs me of what's happening - aha!
  • Dexter. Speaking of origins, I think Dexter was one of the first of this new breed of TV, long before Breaking Bad (which I still haven't seen??) that had us rooting for the anti hero, Dexter had us questioning our morality with his "unique" way of vigilante crime fighting. I think I finished the whole 9 Seasons of Dexter in a matter of weeks (I told you, when I binge - I really do) and I must admit, between you and me, I wept at the end. Like a baby. In fact, if you've ever seen Dexter - please let me know I'm not alone here. Just a massive emotional wreck...

Please do recommend what series I should sink my teeth into next! I'm thinking 'True Detective'...? (Guilty of loving a bit of Woody Harrelson)

  1. I'm loving Gotham at the moment. I keep up with NCIS and Criminal Minds but I'm sure when I get Neflix soon I'll lose more days to tv. Maybe this isn't a good thing, but I want to watch Orange is the New Black and that new one Better Call Saul.

  4. Gotham is awesome! If you were a fan of The OC back in the day, then you'll enjoying ogling Ben Mckenzie 😆
