I finally caved to popular demand and signed up for Netflix. I’d been resisting it mainly because I had a feeling that I would wind up marathoning so many shows that my body would become fused to my laptop. And while that hasn’t exactly happened, I will admit that I’ve been blasting through some shows at a rapid pace. Here are five shows that I have watched in record time.
1. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
I blew through this show in a couple of days. It was hilariously quirky and I just couldn’t get enough of it. It was the perfect way to pull myself out of a little slump I was having, not to mention the fact that the theme song is seriously addictive.
2. Brooklyn 99
Hoo-boy, this was one show that completely took me by surprise. Normally I’m not a fan of Andy Samberg, so I didn’t expect to enjoy Brooklyn 99 but I was totally wrong. This program is really clever and totally hilarious. There are some great female characters and the head of the police force is a married gay man who busts so many stereotypes. Seriously, watch it.
3. Orange is the New Black
OITNB is just so flippin’ more-ish. The story is so gripping and tantalising that one episode is never enough. I’m always eager to find out what else is going to happen in Litchfield Penitentiary.
An oldie but a goodie, Friends will always be one of my favourite TV shows. Although I’ve watched it through countless times, I am still content to have regular Friends marathons when I’m feeling a bit sick or lazy. I’ve also found that it’s the perfect show to watch while I’m crafting because I don’t have to focus on the action because I’ve seen every episode about a million times.
5. The Office.
I get so caught up in The Office each time I watch it. Because the episodes are short, it’s easy to slam a couple in one sitting and still not feel like you’ve had enough. I adore The Office because it’s got a really diverse cast of characters and the humour is fantastic.
What are your most bingeworthy shows? I’d love some recommendations for future Netflix marathons.
