I write these posts and think god I watch a lot of tv… I mean I do but in my defence a lot of these shows are pretty new so they only have one or two seasons. Meaning they’re easy to binge and watch quickly. That being said I do constantly have the tv on as background noise so I am always watching some form of tv show.
However these show are all pretty much one or two seasons long and perfect for a weekend binge..
The Umbrella Academy
When I first started watching this I wasn’t too sure it would be my type of show but I ended up loving it. It’s got a comic book element to it mainly because its based on the Umbrella Academy comics. About a family of superheroes who come together after their father dies to save the world. This had me hooked from the start, it was one of those show where you’re like “I’ll just watch one more episode” then you end up watching 5. They need to do a season 2 though because that ending was so good.
This was another one I was a little skeptical about when I first started it but it turned out to be really good. At first I was expecting it to be really dark but it turns out it’s more of a comedy than anything else. When Nadia dies on her 36th birthday she wakes up back at the beginning of the night. Each times she dies her clock restarts back to the same time. Like I said it ended up being really good, I think I binged it in 2 days. I really liked the groundhog day element of the show and how she tried to change her timeline. Definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something fun to binge watch. Hopefully they come back with a season 2 soon.
I just can’t decide on this show. I’ve been stopping and starting Supernatural for the past year or so never fully getting into it. Now that it’s full 13 or is it 14 seasons are on Amazon Prime I’ve been trying to stick with it. I like the premise of the show I’m teen from the rise of vampire diaries/ Grimm and well supernatural so I do enjoy these type of shows. There’s just something about supernatural I just can’t quite grasp. So I’ve been putting it on in the background while I’m working at home and I have gotten through a fair few episodes. I think I’m maybe on season 4 or 5 now. It’s one of those shows that can be followed along while half watching it. But I don’t know I’m still on the fence with this one.
I finally got round to watching the third season of poldark and I was a little underwhelmed. It’s one of those show that’s when you watch a few episodes in a row you can get into it. I really liked the first season but season 2 & 3 have been a little slow. That being said the last couple of episodes were very good now I really want to see season 4. Like I said it takes a while to warm to but when you do it’s a great show.
After loving Netflix’s You I really wanted to like Dirt John but I just didn’t like it that much. It took me a surprisingly long time to get through the 10 episodes. Sometimes I’d go days without watching any. I just found the characters really unlikeable… which I mean I guess that’s the point with the Dirty John character but even the rest of the characters. I don’t know it wasn’t one of the best shows.
Queer Eye S3
I am so glad Queer Eye is back for another season. Season 3 of the makeover show is now on Netflix and the Fab 5 are back in full force. I basically binged this season and I will admit there’s been a few tears..
Okay so Narcos has been in my watchlist since it first came out and I’ve just never fancied giving it a go. While I was looking around trying to find something to watch I thought I’d try it and see how it was.. I really enjoyed it. I’m still on season 1 so I’m slowly making my way through it but so far I’m liking it.
