TV Talk is a new series of posts here where I will talk about the TV Shows I am watching, want to watch, and the shows that got away ( go figure from the name).
Shows We're Currently Binge Watching:
Poldark - I saw people raving about this BBC period drama and just had to start it. I was extremely sick when I started and just couldn't get enough. I watched 3 episodes and need to find the mood for period drama again. But really you need to watch this because it was amazing thus far. I just love Ross Poldark. Can he be mine?
Reign - This was one of these shows that I had heard a lot about and meant to start but never got around to. I saw it on Netflix at the start of the week and thought, why the heck not? AND I DIDN'T STOP. I've been sucked in. I know it's horribly inaccurate as far as history goes (shall we discuss the strapless tulle dresses that are more NYFW than 15th Century French Court?) but it's fun and sexy and indulgent. Megan Follows is a boss, I love her. And the guys are swoon worthy. I needed this in my life.
Sense 8 - A friend of mine binge watched Sense 8 and she absolutely raves about it. I would say I was forcibly made to watch it in the Honors Lounge of my college before class, but then again I really wanted to watch it. This is one of those shows that needs your undivided attention and also needs a few episodes to hook you. The characters are just outstanding in this show and I can't wait to finish this show.
White Collar - I started this over the summer and fell in love. I adore crime shows and I'm always looking for a new one to satisfy my mystery craving. I'm nearly done with Season 2 and I love the friendship between Burke and Caffrey. It's definitely different to a lot of stuff out there and even if you're not especially enamoured with white collar crime, it's worth giving it a try.
Daredevil - This one has been on the "currently binge watching" shelf for me for months. I keep forgetting about it. This show is great though. I am on like episode 9 of like 13, which means I should be finished with this by now. Marvel really did well going with netflix for this property. I just want to see more of the Daredevil characters I know and love.
The Vampire Diaries - I watched Season 1 an age ago but I have a friend who is obsessed with it (and The Originals) and she pestered and pestered for me to start again. I did and I've been steadily watching them with her whenever she's free and taking to Twitter to have #TVDBuddyWatch conversations which makes the whole thin
Shows On Our Next To Binge List:Dana:
Reign - I am pretty sure that I watched all the way up to the season finale of season 1. Then I just fell way too behind to even contemplate catching up. Hannah is currently binge watching this so I definitely want to watch it and be able to talk about it with her. Plus, I love me a period drama despite the inaccuracies of this one.
The Blacklist - I had watched some of this show and tried to catch up on demand, but they started taking them down. My brother is all caught up and he loves this show. I have been seeing the promos and it looks so good. This show was so unique and interesting that I need to know if any of my theories panned out.
Scandal - I binge watched and caught up on Scandal, but then fell behind the beginning of last season. The promos for the newest season make me so excited for this show again. I need to do a short little binge and catch back up on what is going on with Pope and Fitz.
iZombie - Yet, another show that I started and fell behind on. This really has a huge cult following. Plus, it comes from the same people who did Veronica Mars. This show was really fun and a bit strange. My brother just binge watched the whole season and has been telling me to watch it. It just went up on Netflix and I am excited.
Sense8 - Since Dana is now watching it, and it's been recommended to me so much, I should really get around to watching this one. I watched the first episode and didn't come back to it but I know the characters are great so I'll be starting this one soon.
Pretty Little Liars - Probably pointless to start this since I know the identity of A and that's the driving point of the whole plot, but I started season one ages ago, finished it and never continued. I would really like to catch up, since I did enjoy it and AGAIN it's one that friends have been nagging at me to watch for ages! I have many naggy TV friends.
Agents of Shield - Got no idea where I'm going to watch it but I need to catch up on this ASAP. I stopped after season one because it took so long for the next season to air in the UK. I love Marvel and I love this show, so keen to pick it up again.
What are you currently binge watching? Do you watch any of these shows? Let's chat about them!
