After having dental surgery, I had to stay home over a week to rest. Luckily I shot of ton of content beforehand so I was able to work on blog posts for you. But I also used the downtime to catch up on some binge-worthy TV shows. I don’t watch too much TV so it was actually nice to just relax and get lost in the characters. I watched so much TV though, that I think I’m all set for the year!
If you’re having a lazy day this Labor Day weekend, these are the binge-worthy tv shows that I loved:
- Fleabag (Amazon Prime) – It’s hard to not laugh out loud to the witty humor of a woman living in London and dealing with bad dating, family and trying to make her one-woman business work. I usually don’t gravitate towards dry humor but this one is quick-witted and dark comedy at it’s best.
- Barry (HBO) – Living in LA, I find this one extra funny. A hitman is hired to do a job in Los Angeles and accidentally gets hit with the acting bug. It’s hilarious to watch his two lives of being a hitman and aspiring actor work together.
- Euphoria (HBO) – This show is a disturbing peek into modern youth as they struggle with drugs, sex and gender in high school. If you have children, it might scare you a little bit. As for me? It just made me so happy social media didn’t exist while I was in high school.
- Orange is the New Black (Netflix) – I have no clue how I was so late to the game with this one. I didn’t understand why watching women in prison could be so entertaining. Now I now. And I became addicted. I watched the first first four seasons back to back! After season 5, things got a little cheesy. But the first two season are definitely a can’t miss.
And a few more… I watched these prior to my dental surgery binge session but I highly recommend them if you’re in the mood for a binge-fest:
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon Prime) – Between the vintage fashion and the witty humor, this is a must see if you haven’t watched already!
- Gossip Girl (Netflix) – I was obsessed with Blair and Serena when the show came out. So it was really fun to re-watch the entire series.
- The Loudest Voice (Showtime) – I really didn’t know too much about Robert Ailes (the former CEO of Fox News) so this show was extra disturbing. But I think it’s really important to watch to understand how the Me Too movement essentially started. Plus, the cast is fabulous.
- Special (Netflix) – It’s a really cute comedy about a gay man with cerebral palsy navigating his way in the world when he finally leaves home as adult.
Now that my binging is over, I’m going back to reading for entertainment when I’m home alone with Jack Jack. If you have any good book suggestions I’d love to hear them! In the meantime, you can read all my book reviews here.
A decent list. I’ve heard a lot about these series, but I still haven’t gotten around to watching them. Now there is a lot of free time, and finally I want to pour a glass of wine, take TV ears (https://reviewedme.com/best-tv-ears-reviews/ here there is a review of the most worthy headphones), and just enjoy watching, so that no one touches you 🙂
Thank you for this list. I think it’s a great decision, as always, to follow your lead and watch something like that. I think http://tv.hobbang.net/ will do the job
Thanks for your ideas, great shows. Now I also started to watch film Irani often on the site https://www.persiapage.com/film-jadid-irani-2019/page/18/ which allows you to do it for free and online, which is very convenient
