Shows I’m Currently Binge Watching
You know what I love about streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu? Binge watching. My wife and I have a lot of free time, since we are both financially and physically limited. As a result, we watch a lot of tv. Here are some series that we are currently devouring, several delicious episodes at a time.
Orange is The New Black. (Netflix) If you liked the series Weeds before creator Jenji Kohan destroyed it, you’ll love this series. I have to warn you, it’s an acquired taste. We watched the first few episodes when the series first premiered, and didn’t think much of it. However, we recently came back to it, and are really enjoying it. I can only hope that it doesn’t get Jenjied, like her first series did.
NCIS – (Netflix) Until last week, I hadn’t seen a single episode of this show. It’s been on, what, 11 years? The plot lines are pretty interesting.The dialogue is snappy, and both my wife and I think this person is totally hot!
CSI (Netflix) – I Watched a lot of CSI during the William Peterson years, not so much with Laurence Fishburne and Ted Danson. My wife had watched very little of CSI, so we’re revisiting.
Melissa and Joey (Netflix) – Yes, Melissa and fucking Joey. It’s actually very funny. I never thought ABC Family would be a source for my entertainment, but there are some very good shows on their network. Don’t judge me.
The IT Crowd (Netflix) – Featuring Chris O’Dowd, this is one of the funniest comedies I’ve seen in a while. I wish they had made more than 4 seasons. I also wish there were more than 6 episodes per season. British tv schedules are so fucked up.
Dragonball (Hulu) – I can’t tell you how happy I was to find Dragonball and Dragonball Z on Hulu. I remembering watching some of both series with my son back in the 90’s. However, back then they were heavily edited and dubbed in order to be deemed fit for American consumption. It’s Japanese anime, and like most Japanese tv, the show doesn’t have much of a filter. If anybody reading this (all two of you) decides to give it a go, watch it with subtitles. You won’t be sorry.
Two Shows We Haven’t Been Binge Watching, But You May Want To.
We’ve been watching Hannibal and Penny Dreadful since both series debuted. If you haven’t watched either show by now, I encourage you to start binge watching Asap. They are both quite brilliant. Frankly, I’ll take Mads Mikkelson over Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lector any day of the week. Hopkins was amazing as Hannibal, but Mads Mikkelson simply takes the character to the next level. Both shows are a must on any binge watchers play list.
So what if anything, are you binge watching?
