Winter is the perfect time to catch-up on your tv watching, don’t you think? It’s cold, it is dark by five…it’s the perfect excuse to order take-out and curl up on the couch for some binge watching. We subscribe to Hulu Plus, Netflix, & Amazon Prime and we should use them 🙂 Here are a few shows I’ve been binging on lately:

I actually heard of this one through Kathy (Vodka and Soda). I’m not exactly sure how to describe this show, serial killer/psychological thriller…you know Hannibal “Hello Clarice”. P and I started it over the Christmas break and were sucked in. Season 1 is available on Amazon Prime currently, and we bought season 2 so we can be caught up when season 3 is released. This show is fairly graphic, not a dinner time watch. I can only watch one or two per night since it is pretty intense. If you were a Dexter fan, you would probably like this show. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
This show documents the development of the atomic bomb, following both the scientists and their families. We completely binged watched this over Christmas break too. I think the story is very interesting and the characters grab you. I get a bit frustrated with the whole idea of them not being able to collaborate…it makes no sense.
House of Cards
If you haven’t gotten on this band wagon yet…jump on. I love Kevin Spacey and find this show shocking, fast paced, and at times funny. I also enjoy the fact you can binge watch seasons, since Netflix releases the show by season not individual shows. Season 3 is coming back on in February, so get on it!
A vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost walk into a bar….I’m just kidding. Actually, they are all roommates. This is a new one we just started watching, and I like it. It’s quirky and funny, plus it has the whole supernatural twist going for it.
This is one I started watching during the day (ie a show I can watch that P won’t care about). I don’t even like country music and I’ve totally been sucked into this show. I think the acting is good, the singing is good, and the storyline keeps you interested.
This is another one that I only started watching this year (and another “me” not “us” show). This show follows the lives of the Braverman family across generations. I like the “real” life aspect of the storyline, not everything is always perfect. Again, I think it is well written, great acting, and storyline. I think this one is better than Nashville in storyline (less soap opera type drama), and it is in the last season now. You can watch the prior season on Netflix (no commercials!)
