So I've blogged several times about the fact that we got rid of cable, but that doesn't mean we don't still watch all of our favorite shows. Our favorite way to watch TV shows is binge watching. We will pick a series that has already started or maybe even already finished and just watch the heck out of it. Of course we watch a few shows in real time as well, but binge watching is so much more fun. If we are watching a show that only comes on once a week, I can barely remember what happened the last episode when another one rolls around. Multiple episodes per week is the way to go, just saying.
The first series Parker and I ever binge watched together was Lost. We watched this while we were dating and got really into it! It had already aired by the time we watched it, so we watched all 6 seasons at once. That show definitely got a little far fetched at the end and we were kind of ready for it to be over with all of the weird plot twists, but it opened up our eyes to the beauty of binge watching.
Shows we have watched from start to finish... or at least until the most current episode:
Game of Thrones
Big Bang Theory
Survivor (not sure that this counts as a binge-worthy show, but we are hooked from season to season)
We are currently going through all of the seasons of Friends. Being that it is my all-time favorite show, I have seen each episode multiple times but it's been a while since Parker has so we watch several a week. If he is home during the day, we typically pop in an episode and watch it while we have lunch. It's a quick show and man is it funny.
We are also going through the seasons of Game of Thrones right now. My husband is obsessed with all things Game of Thrones, let me tell ya. I like this show well enough. It's not my favorite, but that's really just because I get angry when George R.R. Martin kills off my favorite characters. Stop doing that, Georgie.
Shows I have watched from start to finish... or at least until the most current episode:
How To Get Away With Murder (favorite show on television right now)
We watched a few seasons of Prison Break, but Parker decided it had gotten too far fetched and didn't want to watch the last season. I really liked that show and wish I would have just finished it on my own! He did the same thing with Alias. He doesn't like it when he doesn't think it's realistic within the context of the show. Over-thinkers. We started watching Breaking Bad, but I am the reason we stopped that. On the fourth or fifth episode, there is a scene with a certain ceramic tub and a certain dead guy in the tub. I was eating lunch when I watched it, and that was that. We need to give it another try because people absolutely love this show and I really think we would too. It might just have to be an after dinner show only.
So that's our list! What shows do you recommend we add to the queue? Please don't say The Walking Dead. In my brain, zombies are real and I just can't handle that show. I'd love to hear your zombie-less suggestions and what your favorites are!
