Binge Watching

Taking a brief break from Fashion Week today. Those posts are labor intensive! Let’s talk about entertainment instead. My husband and I are binge watching Netflix’s House of Cards.

Have you watched it? What did you think? For us, it’s been very engrossing and we’ve stayed up past our bedtimes to squeeze in “just one more episode”.  But we’ll be all caught up when the new season is released in May.

We did the same thing with USA Network’s Mr. Robot

And TNT’s Good Behavior

It was amazing to see Michelle Dockery in a part soooooo very different than Downton Abbey!

And lest you think we’re a couple of gritty, nihilistic, misanthropes, we also did the same thing with Netflix’s The Crown

Masterpiece’s Victoria

And our much beloved Foyle’s War

So now, you tell me, have you seen any of these series? Which is your favorite? What else do you think we should be adding to our binge-worthy list? 

Until next time

  1. We LOVE House of Cards and The Crown. Surprisingly, we weren’t able to get into Victoria. I think I ruined the show for myself by reading so many Victoria biographies. It takes the fun out of watching when you know what’s fiction. We’ve also been watching Imposters, but it’s a new show so there are only a few episodes. We also started watching Mr. Robot, but then we fell behind. It’s a great show, though.


    • Hello my friend! After all the build up you couldn’t get into Victoria?! What a shame! I enjoyed it immensely. Since you had recently read the source material maybe you were just too close to it? Biopics can be tricky. You know they have to invent conversations and sometimes even plot devices to make the story flow. Mr. Robot is so intense and messes with your head!! We had to take a break from it a couple of times because it could get so dark. And there were two “What the hell just happened here?” episodes that it took me a while to process. We’re anxiously awaiting the new season on that one. I’ll have to check out the Imposters.

      Do you find it unsettling that your both repulsed and enthralled by Frank, Claire too for that matter, at the same time?

      Thanks for stopping by! 😘
