The Series Binge

Ahh, the binge.  The ultimate in everything and nothing to wile away the hours when you need it most.  For the after hours, need a break, and 'just because' days.  

Here are a few of my favourites lately:

1.  The Good Fight on Amazon Prime

The series in which Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) takes the lead.  Whip-smart writing, brilliant casting and a mirror to the current trends and politics- if you loved the Good Wife, you'll love this series turn of events.  The kind of show where each episode gets better and better.  And now, I absolutely cannot wait for season three.  That good.

2.  Grace and Frankie on Netflix

I'm not sure why it took me so long to indulge in this series by Marta Kauffman (think co-creator of Friends) and Howard J. Morris but my old flatmate sure did know a good thing.  (While she was watching this, I was cooped up in the midst of Stranger Things) Two completely different personalities, a shift in married relationships and all the hilarity that follows.  This is Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin at their absolute best.  Aging never looked or felt more fun and authentic than it does in this show.

3.  Queer Eye on Netflix

Easily one that comes to mind any time anyone ever mentions looking for something to watch- beautiful men, an undeniable chemistry and talent for what they do best and a genuine sweetness for wanting the best of their makeovers.  Two seasons, the number one reason the word 'yaaasss' has been introduced into my vocabulary and the show that I hope that you dear reader, get to watch at least one episode of this week.

4.  The Staircase and Happy Valley on Netflix

One is a documentary, the other is a crime drama but both are intensely gritty, visceral and highly addictive.  The type of genre that questions the very core of our personalities, shares its 'chilling lessons' and still somehow in the midst of it all peaks our curiosity for more.  

 

P.S. Curious what you've been bookmarking lately dear friends! What's been catching your eye of late? :)
