It’s been a very long winter…and much television has been consumed. I’ve referenced binge-watching a couple of times in my posts. I’ve always mentioned how it’s not really my thang. With the DVR and Netflix, we already watch enough TV in the evening hours, I don’t need to be filling my days with idiot-box viewing also.
Or do I?
Like I mentioned, long winter.
I eagerly watched the entire series of Sex Education. 16 episodes, each less than an hour. The relationships and interactions are wonderful. I adore BFF Eric.
I zoomed through Russian Doll. At only 8 half-hour episodes, there is NO reason NOT to watch this show. You have the time. Right now. Go.
Also kind of graphic. But everyone is a grown-up, so it feels less obvious.
I’m also enjoying The Magicians. 4 seasons, 13 episodes each. I am into the third season. The magic and mythology informs my Pandora series.
But, my current FAVORITE is Lucifer, a character inspired by Neil Gaiman. Seasons 1-3 air on FOX, but it has been picked up by Netflix for season 4. I’m making ridiculous progress through the series…I blame the set-up and mere seconds between episodes for my addiction. One episode ends with a cliff-hanger but it’s okay because the next starts NOW! It’s silly, predictable, crime-solving fun but with a twist of religion tossed in. Also good research for my contemporary mythology novels.
I have to tell you, I was getting a little nervous…season three episode twelve begat episode thirteen begat fourteen, etc and I thought, OH NO! I’m almost at the end…but THEN! Then I realized it’s a network program with network seasons and I get 26 episodes! That made me very happy.
Honestly, it’s the little things.
What are you watching? Enjoying? Binging?
If you haven’t watched what I’ve watched, there’s still time.
Winter in the Midwest will last a couple more weeks, don’t let those “nice” days fool you.
Go ahead and binge.
Then, let’s discuss.
