Confessions of a TV Series Binge Watcher

 

Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you. Halloween is tomorrow and I’m getting together with the same Moms I went to the orchard with and we’re taking all our boys Trick or Treating. I can’t wait. My boys have a blast whenever we get together and I have fun, too.

This weekend has been productive. I’ve been able to write, and I’m making headway on both the WIPs that are taking up creative space in my brain. Because of this, I didn’t feel guilty about starting to binge watch one of my favorite shows. It’s titled “The Fall” and stars Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan. The third season has just come out on Netflix and hubby and I sat down last night to watch it. (We’re gearing up for winter when we can’t get outside as much because of the cold weather.)

This show is incredibly well written and the actors do a great job bringing their characters to life. If you like suspenseful thrillers then this show is for you. I love how this series delves into the characters so deeply, you really get to know them. By doing this, it makes the viewer want to find out more about the characters. You start to care about them and you want to see what happens to them.

It’s the story of Stella Gibson who’s the Detective Superintendent and her nemesis Paul Spector who is a serial killer. It’s the story about his crimes, his capture, and right now it’s heading toward his trial. The obstacles Stella has to overcome are incredible, and I know I could sit here and watch each episode of season three one right after the other.

So, if you’re in need of some down time or have a weekend with no plans, and you’re an introvert like me where you need alone time to unwind, this show’s for you. It is that good. 🙂

Here’s a couple of other awesome shows that I’ve binge watched and absolutely loved.

Breaking Bad

 

****This was an incredibly well written story. The change in the main character is amazing and Bryan Cranston did an awesome job. That being said, it was also very violent. Just an FYI 🙂

Better Call Saul

****This is a spinoff from Breaking Bad and it’s the story of Saul Goodman (Walter White’s attorney). It wasn’t as good as Breaking Bad, but again the writing was excellent and so was the acting. I enjoyed the series.

The Newsroom

*****I absolutely loved this show! The writing and acting were amazing. I love Jeff Daniels and he did a great job. You’ll love this one, I’m sure.

 

Longmire

***** I just finished binge watching this series and it was very good. If you’re a fan of the old western, this one’s for you. It’s a modern day one and it was very good.

 

So there you have it. Some shows to binge watch during those cold winter days when it’s too cold to get outside. Do you have any shows you’d like to recommend? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you!

    I like to watch series as well… Netflix has definitely changed my like. (haha!)… Plus I watch each episode and make sure to add captions in English which is an excellent way to improve my second language! 😉 I am actually watching the third season of the Fall, just released it a few days ago … Great!… But a must watch is defintely Black Mirror… Sending all my best wishes. Aquileana 🙂

      Oh. We’ve seen that one on our guide, but we haven’t selected it. I’ll have to check it out, though. Winter’s coming and I’m sure we’ll be watching a lot of TV on the weekends. Thanks for stopping by and giving me your recommendation! 🙂

    Thank you for the tips on shows! My husband and I do a lot of Netflicks in the winter – Longmire is a top favorite. I will check out The Fall and The Newsroom….but I tried watching Breaking Bad and it was too brutal for me! But two more shows to savor sounds great! Thanks, Lisa. Jo

    • Lisa Orchard says:

      You’re welcome, Jo! Thanks for stopping by. Breaking Bad is very violent. The Newsroom has hardly any violence at all, but a lot of drama. It’s very good. It’s one of my faves. Hubby and I are binge watching The Fall now. It’s got some violence in it, but nothing like Breaking Bad. 🙂

  4. Thanks for the recommendations. Just binge-watched Gilmore Girls this past weekend. 🙂

    • Lisa Orchard says:

      I haven’t watched that one yet. Is it good? I’ve heard a lot of positive things about it. 🙂

      • Um… I don’t want to give anything away. I’m a huge fan of the show and was VERY excited they did this. It was worth watching just to see the characters again. They got a lot of actors/actresses back for this…and then some. 😉 Plus, same writer/director so, if you’re a fan, definitely worth a watch.

        Thanks for the info. I’ve got this one on my list to binge watch this winter when I’m stuck inside. 🙂
