Favorite Binge-Watching Show

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys! 

I don't know if you are like me, but I have less and less time for having fun or relaxing. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Prime have given me the satisfaction of binge watching some shows. I can't stand the incertitude normal shows that are broadcasted week to week bring me. Shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black have an special place is my mind due to how I enjoy them. What shows you like to binge watch?

Well I just created a post about the show that I am most recently binge-watching, and that is The Night Of on HBO, and it is fantastic too.  I am not a big binge-watcher overall, though, so that might tell you something about this show.  Some of the other ones that I have done this for was Orange Is The New Black, which was okay, and the Making A Murderer documentary on Netflix, which was really good.  Thanks for sharing.

Making a Murderer was a great show, but I felt it was somewhat dense to binge-watch. Those irregularities in the investigation were really suspicious. What was your opinion on it?

What's the Night Of about?

I love Hell's Kitchen with Gordon Ramsey and when a new series of that came onto Netflix recently, I sat down and watched the whole series over one weekend. Oops!!

i always feel a little bit guilty binge watching tv like this - but I just don't have the patience to watch one episode a week!

I also regularly binge watch series of the Office and Extras on Netflix even though I have seen every episode plenty of times.

RIght now my favourite tv show to binge watch is The Office (The US Version). Because it's short (around 20ish minutes) I can watch so much if I start watching it. I always finish and say just one more and end up watching about half a series in one day xD. 

@Knitting Do you watch the US or the UK version of the Office?

      Do you have a TV antenna? If so, how many stations are you able to receive with it?
      Out in the country here, most people have cable or satellite, but I'm starting to see and hear about more people using antennas. I cancelled my TV subscriptions, so I'm wondering it this would be a viable option. I'll probably still stick with streaming, but getting some local channels would also be nice.

      Name some great sci-fi or fantasy shows. I really like this kind of stuff, though I'm more into aliens, space, time travel, super powers, etc. I don't really like haunted or evil stuff so much, so that end of the "paranormal" spectrum really isn't for me.
      Do you like this type of TV show? Which kind do you like best? Do you have any good recommendations? I think I've already seen most of the good stuff that's newer. Maybe someone knows of an older or more obscure TV show that would fit that I've missed.

      While many people have probably at least heard of Roku, there are other brands and types of streaming devices available as well. Do you own one or know someone who does? If so, what is the experience like (did you like it)?
      I have been looking into streaming devices, and I think they're pretty cool. I would like to have one, but I'm not yet sure which one I want to get. It would make watching shows and movies at home so much more convenient, especially when you want to watch with other people. Everyone can plop down on the couch and start watching.
      I like this idea much better than the thought of going back to cable or satellite, since streaming sites seem to be a much better deal.
      I'd like to hear other people's opinions. What are your thoughts?

      Do you find yourself watching a lot of reruns on TV? It's one of the reasons I cancelled my TV service. There never seemed to be anything on but reruns. Now, I find myself watching a lot of them anyway, but I just do it online for a lot less money.
      There are some good, new, shows, but it seems like a lot of it has just been done to death. I'd love to find something truly unique, original, and good to watch. Otherwise, I guess I'll be doing a lot more reruns in the future. That's not all bad though. Some TV shows are worth watching again.

      Well I just had to come on here and recommend a show for everyone.  I do not usually do this, too, so take that for what it is worth.  The Night Of on HBO is my new favorite show, and I can officially say that I binged watched the first five episodes, and I cannot wait until this Sunday for the next one.  For those who are unaware, it is a crime/thriller series that follows a suspicious murder in New York.  Visually it is one of the better ones I have seen in a while, and the story is great too.  Hope you like it.
