Friday Feels – Binge-worthy Shows
Hey guys! Welcome to another Friday Feels where I share what I’m “feeling” this week.
This week I’m feeling worn out! Since I’ve been spending so much time working on outside projects, I’ve basically fallen into bed every night unable to move my limbs. Which calls for recovery Netflix binge watching, wine and popcorn. Thankfully, a few weeks ago, I asked all you instagram followers for the binge-worthy shows on your must watch list and you guys delivered! I’m currently on the Crown (I know a million years behind every one else) and the kids and I got really into the Great British Bake Off when the Mr. was in Hong Kong last week and we are kind of obsessed. I thought if you were in the market for a new show I would share the list with you in case you don’t have an awesome instagram tribe of people to poll like me ;)
I have to say I haven’t seen most of these shows, so I can’t attest to them, but these were the ones mentioned over and over again.
- Stranger Things (I haven’t seen the 2nd season yet!)
- Mind Hunter
- Call the Midwives
- Parenthood (loved this show)
- The Good Doctor
- The Magicians
- Sherlock (one of my favorites!)
- Grace and Frankie
- The Man in the High Castle (the first season was so good, the 2nd is on my list!)
- Peaky Blinders
- Big Little Lies (great book, I need to watch this next!)
- Mozart in the Jungle
- Handmaids Tale (I read the book and it’s very good.)
So, let me know if any of those your faves? Or, do you have some binge-worthy shows I should add to my list? Happy Weekend!
“A Place to Call Home” and “Counterpart” are both awesome!
I’ll check them out – thanks!
The man in the high castle is on my to do list! Of course, bachelor is starting soon so it might have to wait a bit. :) this room is so beautiful by the way!
Oh man that is the one show I don’t get into, I don’t know why! Everyone seems to love it though :)
Sneaky Pete is excellent! Loved Parenhood but moved to the lake and missed the last 3 seasons so Im carching up! Bosch is good too!
Hope you and your GF’s eat at Sand dollar and enjoy the view!
Bosch is definitely on my list, I keep hearing good things! And I haven’t eaten at the Sand Dollar yet but we had a blast!
This is Us (perfect for binging because there’s a cliffhanger a lot)
Big Little Lies
This is Us is too emotionally draining for me I can’t handle it, sob!
For uproarious laughter, “Nailed It !”, episode 2. Had to pause it several times for side kinks!
Oh boy I haven’t heard of that one, sounds interesting!
The Good Doctor is fantastic! I cry every episode…..very well written.
You guys have the best suggestions haven’t heard that one either!
If you liked Parenthood, you’ll love This Is Us! It’s a major tearjerker, though!
I know I can’t handle it I watched 4 episodes and my husband couldn’t handle all my tears ha!
Yes, The Good Doctor is fantastic. You also need to see Elementary.
I’m going to need more hours in the day to watch TV ha!
Death in Paradise, Grace and Frankie, and it’s Call the Midwife :)
Please add Netflix “queer eye” to the list. It made me cry every episode because it isn’t so beautiful and life-affirming.
I am also liking “love” on Netflix but maybe just because I’ve lived in Los Angeles.
Oh I’ve heard that is good!
The Fall, a British crime drama is excellent.
The Fall was one of our favourites, we couldn’t stop watching. And if you like Broadchurch (we loved it), you will enjoy Happy Valley. And Making a Murderer, if you haven’t seen it, is horrifyingly interesting.
Oh those sound great too, I’m going to need some rainy days to fit all this in!
You are the second to mention that one, sounds good!
Where did you find that beautiful Sail painting? I adore it! Thanks
Melissa Lyon Art look her up on instagram and you can shop her paintings, they are beautiful!
Godless is also one of my favourites, as well as Alias Grace based on the book written by Margaret Atwood. Whenever I feel overwhelmed or down I watch Schitt’s Creek written by Dan Levy ( son of Eugene Levy) always puts a smile on my face and lightens my mood. Not sure how many seasons are currently available on Netflix. Carol Burnett is currently watching this series and is also impressed . ?
Oh I’ve heard that is hilarious!
When Calls the Heart!
for sure Call the Heart (kid friendly, too)
Definitely going to check out some if the suggestions on this list!
I would also highly recommend ‘Reign’ It’s enchanting i.e. the story of Mary Queen of Scots
I happened upon it looking to see what Meghan Fellows (Ann of Green Gables movies) had been recently. It’s historically accurate on timeline, etc…..
How could you forget the “e” on Anne?! She was very adamant about that “e.” ;0)
hahahahahahaaha!!! So true! My middle name is Ann, and when we had a daughter I wanted hers to be Ann as well! Of course I HAD to add an E to hers! We laugh about it quite often!! :)
Sounds like a good one too!
I LOVED Outlander and was actually sad when I reached the last episode.
If you’ve never seen Downton Abbey that’s a must.
Mr. Selfridge is another awesome show.
Homeland is my husband and my favorite show to watch together.
This Is Us is pretty amazing as well.
Brothers and Sisters is an old show, but sooo soooo good.
Parenthood is another one that I absolutely loved.
Thanks for posting this. I’m always looking for good shows to watch on the treadmill.
Love “This is Us “ too ?
I haven’t seen Downton Abbey, I can’t seem to talk the Mr. into it! Next time he goes on a business trip maybe!
So many good suggestions on your list! Peaky Blinders and Grace and Frankie are two of my favorites! Currently watching The Americans on Amazon Prime and it’s awesome :)
Oh yes we love the Americans I think we are on season 3!
If you like WWIi stories and don’t mind subtitles The Time Inbetween is very good. It is worth it for the clothes alone.
Oh man subtitles are hard for me because I’m SO blind, maybe I’ll have the Mr. read to me ha!
Thanks for sharing your list. Here are some others you might like to check out: Travelers, Imposters, Godless, Midsomer Murders, Death in Paradise, OA, Longmire.
Thanks so much Sonja!
Did you lighten this wall paint color (Silverstrand) ? By how much?
No we didn’t lighten we just have a TON of natural light in our house with the sliding doors and facing south so color tend to look lighter in here.
