My TV Binge.

You guys. I have a confession to make.

Since I was laid off in November and have essentially been home since then, I’ve binge watched a lot of television. Like an almost embarrassing amount. And I feel like I should share it with you all.

House of Cards. When the newest season came out I figured it’d be a good time to watch the show so many people raved about. It was good. Not my favorite show of all time, but not bad. Season three was kinda lackluster and the finale was not nearly as awe dropping as I thought it would be.

Bloodline. I admittedly watched this bad boy in two days when Matt was out of town. I even forfeited precious sleep time because I just had to know what happened. I started watching it for Coach Taylor, but kept watching it because it was just so well done. I even wrote a whole post about it over at the Daily Quirk.

Parks and Recreation (Seasons 1-6). I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a comedy as much as I loved this one. Why it took me so long to catch up, I’ll never know. But I’m so glad I did. And I’d really like Netflix to get the final season so I can know what happens! But really, this show is just so damn delightful and I love everyone on it.

Cold Case. Thanks ION for having endless airings of this show and actually airing it in order from start to finish. My DVR was loaded up with Cold Case episodes and I finally made it through. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and no idea why I never watched it when it was on TV (probably because I watch enough crime shows)

Game of Thrones. I thought I’d watch an episode or two. And that I’d be too confused to honestly care what was going on. I was wrong. And I caught up with the series just in time for the season finale (after only three weeks, whoops).

Broadchurch (Season 1). I had heard good things about this one. And oh, was it right. Another crime drama, but this time British! Seriously, a good thriller and season one could be a stand alone mini-series. There is a second season however and I’m so curious to watch it eventually and see where they take the story.

Orange is the New Black (Season 3). Well, that took me like two days.

In my queue : Frankie & Alice, Parenthood, Chef’s Table

However, it may now take a while to get the to queue now seeing as to how Riley now pays attention when the TV is on. Before I could just turn him away and he wouldn’t care. Alas, since we are implementing no screen time for the munchkin means no screen time for me.

Well except for the ever illusive nap times where I’m not trying to get a ton of work done. Seriously nap times are so precious it’s hard to really figure out what I want to do with them, read? Eat? Watch a movie (er part of a movie)? An episode of a new show? Shower? Nap?

So yeah, that’s where my time went for a few months.

And what have you been watching these days?

 

happy thursday!
