I haven’t done a ‘What I’m Watching’ post in quite awhile. That said, I tend to go through phases with Netflix, and right now I’m going through a phase of inhaling lots of new shows. I’ve been quite absent on my blog recently, and thought this would be the perfect post to get back into the swing of things. Perhaps, you’re looking for a new show to get stuck into, and maybe this post’ll help you!
We got a new TV in our college house, with Chromecast, so I only had to download the Netflix app on my phone- and so it started. There is lots I’m enjoying on Netflix at the moment, and there’s lots that I have to get back into and finish- just as well the evenings are getting colder and darker! One of the best parts of this time of year is the evenings closing in, and growing darker earlier. Queue the hot chocolates, warm firms and cosy pajamas along with some Netflix.
I’m quite late on this one. YOU came out in January when I was living solo in Prague- not the right time to watch a show with the idea of a relationship with a stalker.
I started (and finished) YOU the other week, and I’m already ridiculously excited for Season 2 to come out St. Stephens Day. I’m so disappointed it took me so long to watch it. I tried to save the shows, and not binge it, especially with college, that said I came to the weekend and had it watched within days.
I felt so bad for Beck, she deserves so much more than what she got. When it was good, she really did seem like she had it all (from her, and outsider perspectives). It’s scary to think that someone could be that deceived.
I’m very intrigued to see where the producers and screenwriters will go with Season 2, and I’m truly excited to see the real story of Candace!
Orange is the new Black
This has been on my Netflix list since I joined the website, but that said I had been waiting for the final season, and now that it’s here I’m just trying to come to terms that I have only 8 more episodes left.
I started S7 as soon as it came out, but then left it on the back-burner for a little while. I’ve thrown myself right back into the depths of the gals of Litchfield and all their drama that is surrounding them now again.
I’ve loved OITNB- it’s not a show I did see myself enjoying as much as I have- and I’ve still got almost the last season to go, so hopefully it lives up to my expectations!
Myself and one of my pals threw this on one evening and were instantly hooked. Diagnosis isn’t something I’ve seen heavily talked about, but is a docuseries; each episode focuses on a new story of a person with a long-term illness that they have yet to discover a diagnosis for.
The idea of the show is that a journalist with the New York Times meets with the person with the illness and helps them by putting out a post online with the hope other people across the world will relate, and share some type of insight.
The idea is truly amazing, and the show is very interesting, in my opinion.
How I Met Your Mother
As soon as I finished FRIENDS I was straight on the How I Met Your Mother bandwagon, and it was everything you would need to fill that FRIENDS void, and maybe even more, dare I say it! Don’t come for me, please!
I started HIMYM way back in the days before Netflix was a thing, and it was being aired on E4, and I got through the first season or two, and loved it. Next thing I knew it had skipped to Season 7, and so the plan to watch it all went out the window, and I quit while I was ahead (hehe, get it? Because it skipped ahead a few seasons?).
I’ve obviously been meaning to restart and finish it since then, and this semester was the opportunity I’d been waiting for.
I finished it the other week, and I’m honestly still a bit undecided about the ending as a whole, if I’m honest. But what a plot twist, all the same? Kudos to the screenwriters. Definitely one I’ll be watching (all the way through) again!
Am I one of the few on this bandwagon? I love Big Mouth, and think it’s truly hilarious. It really does try it’s best to deal with a few topical topics, and even, though it’s a cartoon it is definitely aimed at a somewhat more maturer audience.
Big Mouth follows the story lines of teens Jessie, Nick and their fellow classmates on their journeys through adolescence with the help of their ‘hormone monsters’. Quite funny, and a very easy watch for those evenings you just want something light!
What are you watching on Netflix at the moment? Have you seen these shows?
