TGIF! I have decided to start a new weekly segment on my blog titled “Friday Favorites” where I will be sharing my favorite things at the moment. To kick off this first Friday, I am going to be talking about my favorite shows to watch on Netflix. By now, I can bet that you have all heard the phrase “Netflix and chill”. I know that I am not alone when I say that I am guilty of binge watching many shows in less than a month and some in as little as one long night.
Let’s be honest, the few seconds between episodes are torture! They know exactly how to reel you into watching the next episode. I mean who needs that kind of stress in their life. Just kidding as I know it’s not that serious. It was just some Netflix humor for you. Even when the weather is bad causing me to stay home or when taking a few days off from work, the truth is that I cannot allow myself to just sit back and binge unless I am done with the most important things that need to be completed on the weekends.
However in between episodes, I will swap out laundry from the washer into the dryer or hang clothes if needed. I can multitask like no other so while watching I will fold clothes, work on my laptop creating graphics for future blog posts, polish my nails and more all while enjoying my “me” time. I actually took a Netflix break for several months because as you can see, it is pretty addicting.
I renewed my Netflix membership when the show Fuller House was released. The crazy thing is that I only watched about six episodes before I lost interest. I started asking around for recommendations and heard about the show Nurse Jackie from a You Tube guru via Snapchat. I started watching it immediately. It was an older show that was once on Showtime however I had never heard of it before and it was just as good as the person claimed it to be. There are seven seasons and I watched them all in less than a month so needless to say it was a very good show in a twisted / morally wrong kind of way so that is my recommendation if you are looking for something new to watch.
In a previous post about this topic, the best shows that I have binge watched so far are:
- Breaking Bad – I watched all of the seasons in about a month.
- Sons of Anarchy – I am not ashamed to say that I watched the show faster than I ever imagined because I wanted to watch the final season when it aired on television.
- Orange is the New Black – I watched Orange is the New Black during an entire weekend.
A few weeks ago, I decided to start watching Grey’s Anatomy from the very beginning. The truth is that I really did like that show however I cannot recall why I stopped watching and/or which season I left off on. After the watching the first couple of episodes, I totally remembered why I loved it. I am approaching the end of the third season and there are eleven seasons on Netflix right now. I cannot predict when I will finish but I will be glad to update you all when I do. The current season airing on television now is number twelve.
As usual, I love to hear from you. What are/were your favorite shows to watch on Netflix? Which show are you completely guilty of binge watching and how long did it take you? Let me know in the comments below as I would love to hear recommendations of other shows that I could possibly start when I am done with this one.
