It feels like we’ve been in quarantine since the beginning of time, what better way to get through it than binge-watching some great tv?
Since quarantine began, this may seem hard to believe, but I haven’t binge-watched anything.
Yes I’m weird, yes I’m a freak, of all the times to pick on me, now’s your chance, as I do feel like an outsider. Yes, yes, I’m a quarantined outsider, very funny, but if that’s the best you’ve got, that’s slightly worrying!
But seriously, what tv shows are there that are binge-worthy?!
Now, I’ve already seen love is blind a few months ago – if you haven’t seen that, stop what you’re doing. If you thought Love Island or The Bachelor was addictive/silly, think again. Plus this show is much much better and more silly than the rest combined, so thank me later when you’ve messed up your sleep routine due to watching the episodes back to back. Don’t worry, the majority of the world was in your shoes ages ago, so it’s a normal response to the greatness of the show. But back to the problem at hand!
I feel like there’s not a bunch of shows worth binge-watching around. I tried watching a few episodes of Killing Eve, but I couldn’t get into the show at all. I was trying to understand why everyone was and is raving about it, but it left me displeased. Maybe I didn’t give it a chance. I’ve seen every episode of My Wife and Kids, over and over again, because that show is just incredible! The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, not so much as I don’t find it as funny? I’m probably the only one in the whole of mankind to have that opinion! And also, Friends. I’ve tried. And I’ve tried. But I don’t find it that funny! I giggle here and there, but its not a laugh so much I hurt laugh, Plus I can get through an episode without laughing at all! It just isn’t for me, I know, I’m crazy!
So if I watch any tv at all it’s the usual Eastenders, Coronation Street and Neighbours. But they’re hardly binge-watching shows, even though I could watch them back to back, they’re just my normal shows. One phenomenal show I’ve discovered and can watch back to back is…
Unsolved Mysteries. I never thought a show could be made especially for my viewing before I found this show. It’s remarkable, but definitely isn’t for everyone. I love and I mean LOVE documentaries, from a very young age I always used to be captivated by true stories. I go out of my way to read cases on the FBI website and if I could know every possible case in history, I would. Trust me, I know a lot! Unsolved Mysteries is basically a round-up of cases which have been you guessed it. Unsolved. So it can be anything from sci-fi, faith healing, to true crime, or to even searching for a long lost love/relative. The list goes on…
And what makes this show different from any others around, is that they get around 4 cases or so in each episode. As many of the other documentaries I watch, are around one case, so it goes into intricate detail, but some people have short attention spams and can’t watch a full hour of it let’s say. But unsolved mysteries, keeps even viewers who aren’t the most interested in documentaries or true stories, gripped. Plus, most importantly, it gets many unsolved cases out there in the public eye again, which is vital to cases having more of a chance to be heard and getting solved, rather than endless cases being left on a shelves gathering dust. If everyone viewed that show, there’d be many less people on the run etc. Why did unsolved mysteries end?!
But back to my predicament, that’s all I’ve discovered. And even though it’s such a great show, sometimes I’m in a light hearted mood and am looking for a well rounded show to just relax and become addicted to. Drama’s, thrillers, even documentaries I’m all into, but maybe I have that genre covered!
