Quaratine Update

 

 

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. I hope quarantine is going well for you. I’ve been working from home, so my days haven’t changed too much. I have finished my story and now I’m editing it. That’s the hard part. I don’t want to get rid of some of the words because I love them, but I must because well you know. 😊

We must kill our little darlings, right? 😉

 

Enough about that, though. Today, I’d like to tell you about what I’ve been watching during quarantine. The first is an amazing series hubby and I have been binge-watching. It’s titled “Killing Eve” and it’s about an assassin and the task force who’s trying to catch her. For a dark story there’s lots of humor and you can’t help but like the assassin even though she’s a psychopath. Let’s face it, she’s not all bad.

 

Then there’s Eve, the woman trying to track her down. Eve is the investigator on the case who’s trying to track down the person behind all the seemingly random deaths. During the chase, we see Eve’s dark side emerging and the attraction between Villanelle (the assassin) and Eve is undeniable. You can’t stop watching. Will Eve catch Villanelle? Will Eve’s dark side take over before she catches Villanelle? Will she cross over to Villanelle’s side? These are all questions that need answers, so you have to keep watching.

The next series is near and dear to my heart because it was written by the same writers who wrote “Breaking Bad.” I loved that show. I loved watching the transformation of Walter White. This next series, I’ve spoken of before and it’s called “Better Call Saul.” There’s a new season upon us and it’s a great show.

 

It’s the story of Saul Goodman the lawyer from “Breaking Bad.” He’s trying to be a good guy, but in the end, he ends up being kind of a shyster lawyer. He’s always on the fringe of the law. It’s a great story because it gives you the backstory to some of the main characters in “Breaking Bad” like Gus and Mike. It’s fun to see Jimmy or “Saul” get into scrapes and what he does to get out of them. If you need some entertainment during quarantine and you like great writing and fleshed out characters, then “Better Call Saul” is for you.

 

Thanks for stopping by and reading my post. I hope you’re doing well during quarantine. If you can recommend a series to binge watch, please do. I’m always looking for a new series to keep me occupied during quarantine. It keeps me from doing housework! 😉

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.

***** 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!
