I am not a binge watcher, but I have really been enjoying some shows on TV/streaming services recently. You’ll probably have seen a few of these on my monthly wrap ups, but here’s the shows I’m loving at the moment.
The Good Place
This show is SO GOOD! It’s weird, it breaks the mould and it’s so random. You can never guess where it’s going to go and I love that about it. It’s about ‘the Good Place’, essentially heaven, which means anything is possible anyway, this show really has no restrictions. It’s endlessly creative, it has some really fab and varied characters and it’s always good fun. Plus, the episodes are only 20 minutes each so it’s a really easy show to binge in a short amount of time.
Crazy Ex Girlfriend
Another weird show, but a very funny one. This is a musical TV show, which usually I wouldn’t go for, but the songs are so catchy and you just can’t not love it. It’s following Rebecca as she is truly a crazy ex girlfriend. It’s fun, it’s easy viewing, it’s random and weird and it certainly makes me laugh. The more recent series have dropped of the edge a bit for me, but I’ve really enjoyed the first two. Warning, you will not be able to get the songs from this out of your head for weeks, maybe even months.
American Horror Story
This one is a little darker, but still just as bizarre. The beauty of this show is that each series is different, they’re all set in the same world and have some overlaps, but really you’re getting something new every time. It’s totally original and I love how it all comes together. Each series feels like another opportunity to fall in love with the show and it’s certainly keeping me entertained and guessing what’s going to happen next. This one perhaps isn’t good if you aren’t a fan of blood, gore and horror.
This show. What. My boyfriend and I watched one episode and now it’s our go to easy watching. It’s about kids going through puberty, it’s animated and it’s incredibly crude and blunt, which makes it very funny. I suppose you could put it in the Family Guy and American Dad category in its target audience. The humour is dark and the content is certainly not for children, but man is it funny. Every time we watch an episode we’re left thinking what did we just watch?
I haven’t watched very far into this one yet, but this is an easy replacement for Friends or The Big Bang Theory. There are familiar characters, a familiar setting, comedy, it’s a good show. Everyone raves about it and I think the reactions are justified. It’s all about American cops and their day to day work lives, but of course they all love to take the piss out of each other and have their own unique and somewhat twisted personalities.
