It’s no secret I watch a lot of movies and TV. What do you expect? I’m an actor. It is all in the name of research. Hahaha. I have a very wide variety of shows and genres that I love to watch. Now, I am neither condoning nor bashing falling into a show hole. I won't lie, I've been known to turn into a mild hermit when I find a really good show to watch. We all do it, right? If you have ever sat on the couch for 3 days in a row ,eating nothing but cereal and going through 8 seasons of Charmed, you are not alone. But just remember, it is all about balance. Watch your favorite shows, but don't forget to live your life. Besides my staples like Reba and Golden Girls, here’s what I’ve been binging on lately.
Merlin (5 seasons)
Let’s be honesty I love anything medieval with dragons and sword fights, magical duels and plots to overthrow the kingdom. It has not taken me long to get hooked on Merlin. A few weeks in and I’m already on season 4. This show does an awesome job of bringing together a lot of classic tales into a one creative world that intertwines people and legends that never would have met otherwise. It was created as a family friendly show so it’s very clean and G rated for the most part. At the risk of sounding like a nerd, I’m pretty obsessed. Being a very visual person, the shows I watch tend to spill over into my actual life. Now you won’t catch me carrying around a sword or anything, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t just get a haircut based on one of the characters from the show. Whoops. I say, blame it on the show hole. Comment your favorite shows to binge watch! I would love to find some new shows to watch since it won’t be long before I’m completely through with Merlin. That will be a sad day indeed.
The Magicians (1 Season)
I am a sucker for any supernatural type of show. In short, The Magicians is Harry Potter for adults. I’m not one for super graphic shows, but I got sucked in by the great writing and plot for this Syfy series. It’s based on a book series like any good show. I’m not sure I’ll ever read it, but the show is pretty solid. They just recently aired the season 1 finale and have announced a season 2. Score! I always hate finding a great show, just to have it canceled after 1 season. If you like witty jokes and sarcasm mixed with hormone crazed wizards in college, you will love this show!
Young Justice (2 seasons)
If you have even a small love for super heroes or animated series you will love this add on to the Justice League. They do such a dope job of tying in the classics and even other shows like Teen Titans and Static Shock. Side effects of this show include: wishing you could fly and spending hours upon hours debating what super power you would have and what your costume would look like. Let's just say, I would be able to fly and control the weather. The weather would all depend on my outfit that day and if you piss me off, I'll hit your house with a tornado. Best of both worlds, right? I’ve never been a huge super hero movie fan, but that is quickly changing thanks to this show.
BEWARE THE SHOW HOLE
