Since I bought an Apple TV, my life has changed drastically. Now, I can’t wait to get home to watch my favorite shows. I’m more excited to watch Netflix than I am to lay in bed. My weekends and free time consists of me binge watching while eating salt & vinegar chips. I have no shame.
I’m on a plane once a week, so I take advantage of that time to catch up on my favorite shows. Remember to always download your movies and shows before you fly because the Wi-Fi on planes doesn’t allow live-streaming.
Game of Thrones
This was the first TV show I ever got hooked on. All of my friends would get together to watch the new episode every week. They begged me to watch a few episodes of season 1 and after that, I couldn’t drag myself away from the TV. My dad, who is anti-television, called me admitting that he finished the entire season in one night. Game of Thrones is 5 seasons in, but you won’t even realize once you begin. I’m counting down the days until April when the new season releases! My favorite character is Khaleesi, by the way.
Viking’s theme is similar to that of Game of Thrones. I started watching it while I was bored waiting for the next Game of Thrones season to come out. I’m happy I stumbled upon it because it ended up being one of my favorite shows!
Homeland is my most recent obsession (I’m watching it while typing this). I have always been intrigued by international affairs and terrorism, which is the basis of Homeland. Claire Danes plays a CIA agent who struggles with bipolar disease. I can’t say much more without giving the story away..I just started season 4, I will recap after I finish the last 2 seasons!
Sons of Anarchy
I will admit that I started this show when it was on its 5th season, and I just finished it last week. I never got the change to watch the first 4 seasons, but I watched season 5-season 7. Charlie Hunnam, the lead actor, was supposed to star in 50 Shades of Grey last year (which probably would have made the movie much more tolerable to watch). He is so dreamy; you are bound to fall in love with him. To summarize, SOA is an American crime drama television series that follows the lives of an outlaw motorcycle club that operates out of a fictional town in California. It is violent and gang oriented. Viewer’s discretion is advised: there is a lot of shooting and blood.
House of Cards
House of Cards is food for the brain. It is educating, fast pace, and corrupt. You have to pay attention to details or else you will fall behind in an instant. The story is set in present-day Washington, D.C., where Frank Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, initiates an elaborate plan to get himself into a position of the greatest power. He pushes and destroys anything in his path to success. The series deals primarily with themes of ruthless manipulation and power.
On a lighter note, Lena Dunham is a genius. She writes, directs, and stars in Girls. Girls is a comedy, and it is much easier to watch. The storyline shows the dynamic of 4 best friends with very different personalities and their adventures while living in New York City.
I finished Narcos season 1 in 3 days. I didn’t go out to dinner solely because I needed to finish the season or else I was going to go crazy. Narcos tells the true-life story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels throughout the world in the 1980s, originating in Colombia. An American DEA agent is sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture and ultimately kill Pablo Escobar.
