Friends, I don't want to sound ungrateful towards summer break, but our Alabama weather has been less than ideal. It's been rainy/cloudy for pretty much the last two weeks. Y'all know... the type of depressing, dreary weather. It's just awful! All I want to do is lay out and soak up the sun, but sadly that just isn't happening yet. All this weather is good for is laying around reading and watching Netflix. Since I already have multiple posts about books, I decided to share some of my favorite TV shows/mini series with y'all in case y'all are having the same depressing weather, too! I'd love to hear your favorite shows!
If you've followed me on Instagram for awhile, you may remember that last summer I became obsessed with Gilmore Girls. Oh man, what a show! There are SO MANY good characters and Stars Hollow might be my favorite fictional setting of all time. I could kick myself for not watching this one sooner. And I dare you not to fall in love with Logan Huntzberger. I don't even want to hear about Dean or Jess. Team Logan all the way!
Gossip Girl is one of my all time favorites. I love all the fashion that comes with the show. Seasons 1 and 2 are by far the best. And yes, the show does go downhill in the later seasons, but it's still a great show to binge watch! I adore Blair and Chuck.
Scandal is SUCH an addicting show! I'm behind two seasons, so I'll definitely be using this summer to catch up. I binge watched seasons 1-4 several years ago and then started watching in real time on Thursday nights. Olivia Pope is such a strong female character and I've even grown to love Millie even though I use to hate her! There's a love triangle in this one between Olivia, Jake, and President Fitz and I'm team Fitz all the way! I cannot stand Jake. At all.
How to Get Away with Murder
This show! If there was an award for most binge worthy, this show would win! You cannot stop watching this one. Every time an episode would end, I would find myself saying "Just one more and then I'll get up and do something." Sooooo addicting!
The Office is my favorite show of all time. I LOVE it! There are so many funny parts and quotes to take away from this show.
"That's what she said"
"I don't want people to be afraid of me. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me."
"Bears. Beets, Battlestar Galactica"
"Did I stutter?"
"Dwight. You Ignorant Slut!"
"I'm not superstitious. I'm a little-stitious"
and my favorite...
"Sometimes I'll start a sentence and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way"
Michael Scott is one of my favorite fictional characters ever. This is a show you can just have playing in the background while you work, clean, etc. It is the best! Be sure and check out the bloopers on youtube after you watch each season. They are almost as funny as the actual show!
Riverdale is a new show I've been watching and I am obsessed! It's based off the Archie comics, so it has all the characters from that comic strip: Betty, Veronica, Archie, Jughead, etc. I've never read any of the comics, so I didn't think I'd like the show, but I was wrong. It is so good!
Glee is another favorite of mine! Seasons 1 and 2 are definitely the best. Season 3 is the characters' senior year and it's okay and then seasons 4,5,6 are just awful. I love musicals so this show is right up my alley! Once they separate the characters though, the storylines aren't as strong and it's just not the same. And then Corey Monteith passed away and the show just never recovered. The early seasons are still classic though!
This show was one I never thought I would get into. Sci fi is NOT my thing, but then I kept hearing people talk about the show and I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I totally get it now. This show is fabulous! I cannot wait for season two to come out in October.
13 Reasons Why
Oh man, this show is addicting, but painful to watch. I read the book by Jay Asher years ago when it first came out and I remember loving it. I was anxious to watch the Netflix series and it did not disappoint. There are so many tough scenes to watch, but it is still such a good show! Season 2 is already confirmed and I cannot wait.
Making A Murderer
True crime fans, this show is for you! My mom and I watched this one back during Christmas and I think we finished the entire miniseries in a day. This show will leave you so conflicted. One episode I was convinced that he really did it and the next I was convinced that the cops planted evidence to frame him. So good!
I binged watched this show several summers ago and it's remained a favorite ever since. It's a strange show and definitely one you have to pay attention to or you'll be lost and I still don't understand the ending, but it's addicting!
Okay, this one is a silly show, but I loved season 1! I tried watching season 2 in real time, but it wasn't as good so I stopped watching but the first season is great! It's another musical, but with original songs that are so catchy! I loved it!
Okay, so those are my favorite binge worthy tv shows! I'd love to hear y'alls!
