I am a self-proclaimed Netflix Binge Watching Queen. Since my family and I were displaced as a result of the flood in August, I’ve been great at not spending money on things. And in exchange, I’ve spent a lot of time indoors get lost in the Binge Watch World of NetFlix, Hulu, and Amazon Originals. And since I’ve happened upon shows that I absolutely loved, I am inclined to share them.

Shameless

This one is listed first because I’ve been completely engulfed in this show since I’ve decided to finally see what the fuss was about according to Twitter. This show honestly lives up to it’s name. The main character is Fiona, the oldest of the Gallagher clan who is solely responsible for her 5 siblings because their parents are the scum of the earth. I was able to sympathize with her at first, then I lost all sympathy by maybe the 2nd or 3rd season. You made feel differently, but it’s definitely a hilarious, yet tear jerking show that I’ve come to love.

Stranger Things.


*

This show is a Netflix Original and was just released a few months ago. I think I’ve watched the entire season about five times already and hoping I don’t realize that it’ll be quite some time before the new season starts. I’m a Sci-Fi, paranormal geek to the fullest so after I read the description, I knew I was going to absolutely love it. And I guess I did since I’ve watching it as much as I have. If you love aliens, theories about other worlds and dimensions, and little kids that discover it all while trying to save their best friend, you definitely need to see this.

The OA


*

So if we’re remaining on the paranormal geeky trip, this show is perfect for allat. I literally watched this show in one day. (I’ve been watching waaaaay too much tv, and my weight confirms it.) The season is really dragged out and the finale sucked in a major way. I won’t ruin it for you, but I will say that I believe that parts of the show were drawn out just to have a certain amount of shows in a season. But, it was a good show nonetheless.

13th


*

This one had me. I have never in my life felt so emotional after watching a documentary on Netflix. It could have been a result of all the recent occurrences, especially one that his so close to home here in Louisiana. Centered around the idea of prison pipelines designed specifically for black and brown people, activists and prominent civil rights leaders and analysts weigh in on this topic. Although absolutely angering and heart-wrenching, it’s definitely worth the watch when you’re emotionally prepared to handle all of the knowledge that is bundled up in 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Luke Cage


*

On a lighter note, Luke Cage is a dope adaptation of a Marvel Comic that still delivers so much black and brown goodness and pride, that it’s worth a second watch. In which I totally did that with no shame. All of these modern movies that are based on Marvel comics really makes me a little bit sad that I wasn’t into comics when I was younger. So if you’re like me, Marvel & Netflix got us covered.

Have you watched any of these shows? What are some of the shows you recommend binge watching?

Leave them below so I can have an excuse to miss the gym. Not really.

      13th had me sad and empowered all at the same time. Sad that my people endured so much injustice and hatred, but empowered to know that they were strong, intelligent, and motivated enough to enforce change. And that alone inspired me in so many areas of my life. As painful as it is to watch, it’s necessary.

    I watched Luke Cage and loved every minute of it. I watched the OA in one night and was baffled by the ending. I need season two stat. I’ll have to check out the others you recommended. I also watched 3% and it was good too. You’d like that if you enjoyed the Hunger Games.

    I’ve actually seen most of these shows, so I’m glad that more people are giving them attention because most of them are absolutely worth it. (Luke Cage is a bit weak, but I have faith the next season will be better.) The only I haven’t seen is 13th, but I hear such good things about it, so I feel that I need to check it out soon.

    Have you seen Captive? I completely recommend it. It’s stressful and intense, but definitely worth a watch.

    Thanks for sharing, lovely. You gave me something new to check out. ?
