Now that I'm no longer working I have more time to watch TV, well in between the episode's of Peppa Pig that I have to suffer through. Seriously how many times does that school roof need mending? On a night I tend to watch programmes that interest Liam as well as myself, although with the world cup on it's been more his interests than mine. So during the day I try to binge watch things I love, I like to mix it up a bit so I don't catch up to the point where I have to wait for the next season which is what happened a few years ago with The Walking Dead.
No.1 Fear The Walking Dead
I'm not normally one for a spin off show but when the latest season of The Walking Dead ended I had a big empty zombie hole that I needed filling. I tried watching another zombie based show but I just couldn't get into it so I started on Fear The Walking Dead. After two episode's I was hooked and rang my mum and told her she has to watch this. I have my characters who I love and who I really hate but I'm not ready for them to die yet. I have just reached season 4 which I'm hoping isn't the last season but have a feeling it may be. If you love zombie's then I would urge you to watch this as it is basically another view of how people are coping with the zombie apocalypse.
A programme I have loved for many years and the reason my son is called Jared, but with the constant channel swapping and then going to a channel I didn't have I fell behind and had no idea what was going. The solution to this was to binge from the start even though I still remember a lot of the earlier episodes they are good to watch and there is little bits that you miss or forget about. I find that this programme can be very dark and on my bedroom TV can be hard to see what is going on but if you have a good quality TV like the 4KTV Panasonic one's then you should have no problem at spotting a demon hiding in the shadows.
No.3 Game Of Throne's
Ok so I'm late to this party. When I see so many people watching the same show and bigging it up I like to avoid it, not because I don't want to be a sheep but rather I don't want to be disappointing. I have to admit that I'm finding it hard to get really gripped on it an it's more of an occasional binge rather then a oh my god I need to watch more. I have been expecting big feels for this show and so far I've not really got them but I shall carry on with the binge and maybe by the time I reach season 2 I will be hooked.
No4. Orange Is The New Black
While I feel this show has lost it's popularity, mainly due to other Netflix shows, this is one of the more serial binger binge show's. In fact my binge watching started with this, it was December and I had lots of prezzie's to wrap so I wanted something I could watch and not have to really concentrate on. Well that changed fast I was hooked and slightly shocked at how graphic it was (the shower scene!) if you have watched you will know what I mean. Although it is very full on like that it is, I mean come on how many show's actually tell it how it is without trying to dress it up and making something it isn't. If you are yet to watch this then please be advised there is a lot of naked ladies in this.
No.5 Making A Murderer
During this show I like the other thousands of people who binge watched this, became detectives. I love crime programmes I watch so many, Lock Up, Homicide Hunter, The First 48 the list goes on, basically if it contains murder and prisons I'm watching it. Making A Murderer isn't just a binge watch it literally consumes you, it played with my emotions I got angry, hopeful and even cried. It hit me that these were real people, real lives and a real crime and I wasn't happy with what I saw. I spent hours well actually months of researching about this and I still check to see what progress there is in Brendan's case as I don't think it went the right way with him. This show also got me thinking about other people sat in jail who have a story that may have just as many unanswered questions, so I write to people in American jails. My binge watching turned it into a hobby of writing to inmates and hearing their stories against the evidence and information available to the public, but that's a post for another day.
Have you binged any of the above? I'd love to know your thought's. If not what have you watched? I'm always looking for recommendation's to add to my binge list.
