We cut the cable cord ages ago and haven’t looked back. Well, that’s not true. There were always mumblings of new shows out that people were watching. But, we didn’t have the right channel. So, last year, we signed up for Netflix and we’ve been streaming shows ever since.
Disclosure: Netflix provided me with a streaming device and service in order to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed in this post are my own. #StreamTeam
|We started out with Mad Men. The ad agency on Madison Avenue, the men, “their” women, the families. After all of the seasons we grew attached to them. This it the only show we’ve binged on that hasn’t completely wrapped yet. We are trying to wait patiently and failing.|
Orange is the New Black
|I went to Facebook looking for recommendations and received a ton of votes of Orange is the New Black. The good? They put out all of the shows for a season at once. The bad? They put out all of the shows at once. Commence the binging. Just one more episode. We couldn’t quit you OITNB. Original story lines and cheering for women in prison. What’s not to love?|
House of Cards
|Since we enjoyed OITNB, we moved on to House of Cards. Another Netflix original. Wow. It’s intense. Kevin Spacey is amazing! And, slightly messed up (slightly is not the right word!). I never saw things coming. And, I didn’t know who I was rooting for most of the time. Twisted. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. It draws you in and keeps you guessing the whole time!|
|I watched one episode last year. It was too intense and I don’t get grossed out easily. But, it won awards and my sister told me I had to keep trying. So, we watch it together. I realize this show has our moral compasses pointing in strange directions. I found myself cheering for the bad guys who were good guys, but then bad? I don’t even know who is good and bad. And then I don’t want people getting caught for doing bad things? Oh, and my sister asks me if that’s how they do it when it comes to cooking meth. Um, yeah, not what my chemistry degree taught me!
We have like 5 episodes left and then it’s all over!
We need suggestions. Maybe we need something good and wholesome because we’ve binged on some crazy and twisted shows!
What should we catch next on Netflix?
