Today’s (or rather yesterday’s) prompt was five shows to binge watch. As the Boyfriend-Wonder and I are notorious homebodies, I asked for his help on this one. Unsurprisingly enough, our answers were pretty much the same:
1.) American Dad, or Futurama, or Family Guy, or Archer (any animated show really!)
American Dad has a little more panache than Family Guy, and is miles funnier than Family Guy. That said, pretty much any animated show (like the ones listed above) are perfect for binge-watching. When I was really sick a few weeks ago, I lived off American Dad marathons in bed, and it’s kind of stuck. Since Netflix has nine seasons of it, it’s the perfect show to put on if the Boyfriend Wonder and I are bored of vidya games or eating.
Scrubs is not only good to marathon watch, but it does what any good TV show does; it’s funny (see the gif above!) but can really hit you in the feels as well. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve cried to this show, but hey- it’s freaking fantastic and I won’t hear a bad word against it. Apart from the Med Students season. I wasn’t too keen on that.
3) Game of Thones, or Black Sails or Spartacus ( or any other Starz show basically!)
This show, man! Pirates! Explosions! Bad ass female characters! I ended up watching half of one series of Black Sails with the Boyfriend Wonder one night when we couldn’t sleep, and it’s freaking fun. Pretty much any historical (or historical style) drama is super fun to binge watch.
Look at Hodge-Podge here! Bones used to be The Boyfriend-Wonder and I’s go-to show. Every night after I got back from uni, we’d sit and watch 3,4,5,6+ episodes. It was a good show to switch off watching, and the crime show format means you don’t really have to pay any attention. After a while a lot of the characters started really grating on us so we dropped it. I still miss it from time to time, if only for moments like in the gif.
5.) Daredevil on Netflix
This show is so beautiful. I could honestly watch it every day for weeks and weeks and weeks. The writing is superb, and all the characters are well written and rounded. The acting is superb and the directing? Ohhhh the directing. There’s no other show out there at the minute which is so well made. I recently watched this with the Boyfriend-Wonder and we’re both quite in love with it.
