In honor of the OG binge show, I’m curious: what are you bingeing these days? Recommendations, stay-aways, whatever—all discussion is welcome here in the land of cabin fever. Please include what streaming services you’re using.
Repair Shop on Netflix is so good, relaxing and faith-in-humans affirming. I've started Westworld which is interesting.
Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which seems wrong but I somehow find it very comforting to watch the story of smart and caring people trying to succeed despite the system and ignorant people in power failing them.
Also Suvivor, which can be found on CBS's app (some seasons can also be found on Amazon).
Allow me to make a strenuous case for binging on Cheers, which is available in its entirety on Netflix and has aged a lot better than you'd think.
I've been doing a Simpsons re-watch, which I had started because there had been a planned Simpsons S1-S5 trivia night last Monday at my favorite Ann Arbor bar for trivia, which has since been postponed. But I forgot how consistently good almost every episode is because I had seen them so many times.
Technically Adam, any TV watching I do is.... (sunglasses emoji)....Benge-watching.
Started watching the filmography of Jeremy Saulnier, which is Green Room, Hold the Dark, Blue Ruin, and Murder Party. He’s a very interesting director! All his movies are on Netflix except Murder Party.
If you haven't watched Money Heist on Netflix, that's a good one to binge.
My sister has talked me into starting Elite, which is basically Spanish Gossip Girl but with murder and explicit sex. It’s trashy af!
Netflix: going right from Narcos: Mexico to the 1994 documentary made both even more interesting
Netflix: We are the last family on the planet to watch Schitt's Creek, so we've corrected that this week. I'm also into The Repair Shop and I'm trying to watch as many episodes of Dad's Army as I can before it leaves Netflix at the end of March.
Righteous Gemstones on HBO if you don't mind dudes hanging dong. Counterpart on Amazon Prime is a JK Simmons masterclass. And I am assuming you are already on Better Call Saul on Netflix/AMC.
If you like SiFi, The Expanse is a must watch on Amazon. Altered Carbon on Netflix. If you want a laid back cartoon for your toddler, Gecko's Garage on YouTube isn't the worst thing you could do. Stay safe out there everyone!
Broadchurch and Happy Valley on Netflix--both British crime dramas. Succession on HBO.
Always binging Veep & Curb on HBO, Schitt’s Creek on Netflix, and Parks & Rec/Seinfeld/Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Hulu.
DVR recordings of Iowa basketball games.
The only thing I do consistently is miss really great shows while they're currently running so we just started Westworld and I am *really* enjoying it!
