TV Shows I’ve Binge Watched

I wanted to share some of the tv shows that I watched this year. If I really get into a show I end up burning through them in a short amount of time. Here are some of the shows I’ve been binge watching. Most of them are on Netflix.

The Handmaid’s Tale

The only non Netflix show on the list. I binge watched the first season in a weekend. I am watching the second season as it releases, but I really wish I could binge watch it. I don’t often watch drama shows, I’m more of a sitcom gal. But I just can’t tear my eyes off this show.

The show is in it’s second season, and there’s currently 18 episodes. Each episode is almost an hour long.

Sense 8

I enjoy a good old sci-fi show. This show starts really slow though and I wasn’t paying too much attention in the beginning. However, it jumps from 0-100 pretty fast and I ended up binge watching the first season in a few days. The fact that they filmed all over the world with all pretty unknown actors (there’s a few faces you’ll recognize though) made this show more awesome to me. If you’re into sci-fi, I recommend giving this show a go.

This show also only has second seasons, but it is completed. There’s 24 episodes, each one ranging from 45 minutes to an hour. The last episode is a whopping two and a half hours though!

The End of the F***ing World

Rory and I watched this in a few days. It was just one plot twist after another and I had no idea where it was going. I haven’t watched something as unpredictable and entertaining as this in a long time. It’s a coming of age/road trip show like no other.

The show only has one season, but I think it may possibly get a second? There’s 8 episodes, with each one clocking in around 20 minutes. Very easy to blast through.

Just Desserts

So there isn’t a trailer for this show so I’ll explain real quick. This is an Australian baking competition. They have to create their own amazing creation based on a theme, then whoever has the lowest scores have to battle it out in a Zumbo test. In this, they have to do their best to recreate one of Zumbo’s desserts, and they’re always insane. I still rewatch this show!

This show only has a season with 12 episodes. Each one is around 50 minutes.

Good Morning Call

This show is amazing! This had been on my radar for a while, and as a fan of shoju manga, this was right up my alley. It’s silly, cute and I always watch this show with the doofiest grin on my face. I binge watched season 2 in less time than I did season 1.

This show has two seasons and I’m really hoping there’s going to be a third. The first season has 17 episodes and the second only has 10. The show is only subbed though. Each episode is an hour long, so there’s a decent bit to catch up on, but it’s so worth it!

Aggretsuko

I knew of Aggretsuko as a Sanrio character, and when I heard about this show I was curious and added it to my list. It wasn’t until last week when we finally put it on that I realized I had been missing out. It’s silly, cute and so much fun!

This show only has one season with 10 episodes. Each episode is only 20 minutes, and its dubbed!

What shows have you watched lately?

  1. I LOVED zumbo’s just desserts! πŸ™‚

    1. It was such a good show! I finished it in around 2 days πŸ˜‚ I really wiah they’d do another season πŸ€—

      1. I know I wish they did πŸ™‚ have you watched Nailed It?

        1. I watched a few episodes, but I didn’t get into it as much πŸ™‚

          1. Fair enough πŸ™‚ have you guys got an equivalent of Great British Bake off?

          2. Not for baking unfortunately! Lots of cooking shows, but no baking :/

          3. That’s sad πŸ™ Was going to recommend GBBO to you!

          4. It does sound like a fun show from what I’ve heard about It! Maybe i can find it online

          5. I hope you can! You’re missing out! πŸ˜‚

  2. I don’t really watch a series at the moment but this made me want to start one again xx

    1. Haha! I love watching shows. I like having it on as background noise while I do other stuff a lot of the time πŸ˜„

  3. I love The End of the F***ing World!! And Sense 8 is in my queue, thanks for the reminder πŸ™‚

    1. Definitely such a great series! Sense8 was a little slow to start, but once it gets going, it just doesn’t stop! πŸ™‚

  4. Haven’t watched these yet, but been ravishing shows as usual. Le Chalet and Westworld Season 2 on Netflix, a Scandinavian show, the name of which I cannot remember for the life of me, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, and watching Sex and the City all over again.

    1. It’s always nice to come back to those shows that we love to rewatch. For me it’s Community and Parks and Recreation (sitcoms as always). Rory is really into Westworld, but I only come into it every now and then and bombard him with questions of who everyone is and what they’re doing

  5. I’ve rewatched Breaking Bad from start to finish in a week or so.
    Also watched 13RW2, but I didn’t enjoy it.
    Thanks for your recommendations, my to-watch list is getting longer and longer…

    1. Breaking Bad was definitely an incredible show! Haha, my to-watch list is always growing as well!

  6. I’ve been so keen to watch Sense8 and my mum’s been on my back to watch Handmaid’s Tale since she’s already up to date and ready for more! EOTFW is also on my very long list haha x

    1. Haha, so many shows to watch but so little time πŸ˜€

  7. I NEED to watch the end of the F%^&(* world. I have heard such amazing things about it. Love the Handmaidens tale too! Such a great list beauty! <3

    1. It’s such a great show, and since each episode is 20 minutes, it’s quite easy to binge! πŸ˜„

  8. These sound so good. I watch Good Morning Call when I want something silly cute haha. But Aggretsuko is on my list too. I just haven’t gotten the chance to binge watch anything yet.

    1. It’s always so much fun to find shows you love! I still rewatch Good Morning Call, but it requires extra concentration since I need to read the subtitles haha! Aggretsuko is so good! They have it dubbed too, so I was watching it while I was doing my jigsaw puzzle πŸ˜€

      1. LOL that’s true, subtitled shows are some of the ones I can’t really have as “background noise” so I have to commit to watching them

  9. Loved your list of shows! I love The Handmaid’s Tale. I haven’t watched the second season yet. Waiting for all the episodes to finish before starting.

    I watched a few episodes of Sense8 and I liked it. But I felt like I wasn’t really interested in where it was going. Although, I’m going to give the show another try again cause I heard the series finale was just as great as the series finale for Six Feet Under (which is my all time favorite finale).

    I loved The End of the F***ing World on Netflix. It was interesting and different. I really hope too that there will be a second season of the series.

    My favorite Netflix original series are LOVE, Bloodline, and Wet Hot American Summer, if you’re looking for shows to watch.

    1. Thanks Jodi! That’s a good idea, I get annoyed having to wait a whole week to see what happens on the next episode haha!

      Sense 8 is definitely slow at the beginning. I had it on but I wasn’t focusing too much on it for the first half of the season. By episode 7 though, things start picking up really fast and I was hooked! Season 2 was also really good!

      I’m hoping there will be a second series too! It’s such a good show, I’d love to see where they go with it.

      I watched the first two seasons of Love, but I still haven’t gotten to the third! I’ll definitely add Bloodline and Wet Hot American Summer to my list! Thanks for the recommendations πŸ˜€

      1. Always happy to offer recommendations. I watch way too much TV, so I always know of a ton of great shows that are worth the watch, LoL.

        I definitely want to start Sense8 again. Hopefully, I’ll get around to watching it again over the summer.

  10. I’ve binged almost all of these, too! One I love that’s missing from your list is The Crown on Netflix… then once you’re finished bingeing we have a list of follow ups, too: https://areweadultsyet.com/2018/01/10/what-to-do-when-you-finish-the-crown/

    1. There’s so many great shows to watch haha! I haven’t watched the Crown but I have heard great things about it, thanks for the recommendation!
