Right here we go... my name is Tamara and I'm addicted to Netflix. There I have said it! Please don't say that I am on my own here. The obsession with Netflix started nearly a year ago, when I moved in with the lover (Dave). I have always loved watching TV, even when I was a little girl I had to have the TV on while I was eating which to be honest still happens today. What can I say it's a bad habit which will probably never change. Anyways as I was saying, I do love me a bit of Netflix. To be honest I'm too lazy to go and buy a lead so I can watch main TV, even though I pay for a TV license. Argos is like a five minute walk away, so I really don't have any excuses not to buy one. Though, I will never leave the flat as I will have even more choice of what to watch.
What I love about Netflix is that you can have a proper good binge session, though it is annoying when it asks you are you still watching? Does anyone else get annoyed with that? I personally think it should bugger off as it makes me feel guilty, as I probably should be cleaning the flat, getting my arse to the gym or reading a book, as I have so many to get through. Nope I rather be a slob and binge watch a season which has caught my eye.
There are plenty of seasons I busted through, not forgetting the countless movies I have also binge on too. I thought I would share with you three of my favourite seasons (this was a very hard decision though to cut it down to just three) and three seasons, I wished I never laid eyes upon.
So I thought I would start with the three seasons that I wasn't really a fan of. Two of the seasons I have to admit I haven't even finished yet. See, I am one of those people who feel that I have to complete a whole box set or it doesn't feel right, even if the show is painful to watch. Anyone else who does this?
I am going to start with a programme, which a lot of people will disagree with me and would be seen an unpopular opinion... Breaking Bad. Sorry not sorry, don't get me wrong there any plenty of scenes which I laughed at and even shed a tear, but I don't get the hype. I was never gripped by it wanting to watch the next episode because I had to know what was going to happen. I'm currently on season three at the moment but I don't feel that I can face finishing the series quite yet.
This leads me to my second programme that I wish I never started...Pretty Little Liars. Please, please, please don't waste your time. The acting is questionable, the plot is so poor they could really do it in one series (there are seven). Plus whoever was costume designer should have got the sack.
Last but not least, the other series I haven't completed watching... Once Upon A Time. In the beginning I was a huge fan, I thought the way it was produced was so bad it was good, the acting was cheesy but it kind of comes with the theme of the series and loved the fact the fairy tale characters all kind of knew each other from past lives. It is very cleverly written. Alas though the storylines have become ridiculous, also I think I am on season five and there are like at least seven seasons with around twenty four episode to go through. I'm not quite sure if I can torture myself, unless I really do run out of things to watch.
Right this is where it gets tough. I have to choose only three series that I got obsessed with and completely binged on. In the end I chose to rave about these three...
I'm going to start with The Umbrella Academy. If you haven't had the chance yet, then you need to watch it like right now! Being a fan of superheroes and seeing the trailer I was like this is a must, plus I was nice enough to ask Dave if he wanted to watch it with me (he agreed). Also it did help that Tom Hopper (sorry Dave) and Robert Sheehan (also sorry Dave) were starring, so there is also some eye candy too. Whoever wrote the script is a complete genius, it's so witty and damn right hilarious. The whole set of it is fantastic, plus I loved the music they used throughout the series too. The acting is top notch too, some big stars in there as well. Definitely a must watch!
The next series I would say should be on your watch list is You. OMG it was brilliant, so creepy and always kept me guessing. Plus you end up feeling sorry for him (well I did anyways). Also by the end, I thought he was a bit of alright (sorry yet again Dave) even though you should be repulsed by him. I'm so hoping they will bring out another series as of course they left it on a cliff hanger! So annoying!
Last choice I would have to go with is, of course Stranger Things. I'm not a Sci-fi fan at all. Rarely would I jump at the chance to watch anything Sci-fi, unless it is Stranger Things. I'm so excited for the next season. I remember people raving about it and I thought nah it's not for me. Well I was so wrong, the storyline is amazing, I loved all the characters also the acting is superb. I just love everything about the show. Though this is another show I watch with Dave, so I won’t be able to complete the whole season in one day. Which to be honest isn't completely a bad thing.
Though I chose these three, there are so many other good series on Netflix. These are some of the other ones that I have to say I also enjoyed. Orange Is The New Black, Glow, Green Leaf, The Bodyguard, Dirty John, Anne With An E and Frontier, just to name a few more. I can't help myself. There is so much choice thinking about it I don't think I will ever run out of something to watch!
