Between blogging, being a mom and all that jazz, I’ve managed to binge watch yet another series. This time: Homeland. Normally, if you told me it was a show about terrorist attacks and the CIA, I would say pass, but the way things go with series lately, I’m all about watching things that don’t fit into my box. And I’m so glad I was able to think outside of that box because it was good, so good, I managed to get through four seasons in less than two months. I’ll just say this: Claire Danes is an amazing actress. Nobody, and I mean nobody, does crazy like Carrie. And trying to wrap my head around how Inigo Montoya has morphed from Spanish avenger to grandpa-esque badass kept me well entertained long after shows ended.
In fact, I’ve stepped so far out of my comfort zone with the things I binge on, that I’ve really shocked even myself.
Medieval shows with dragons, not my bag. Killed the entire lot of Game of Thrones in a month.
A heaping helping of meth heads and labs—not so much what I would choose to watch. But Breaking Bad was an exceptional viewing experience. The transformation of Walter White’s character alone was gold.
I’ve also killed Lost (aka the greatest show ever—this is not debatable), Orange is the New Black, House of Cards (which restarts on the 28th of February), Mad Men, Silicon Valley and most of Boardwalk Empire.
So now what? I’m considering The Affair, The Wire and Ray Donovan.
I’m open to suggestions, so hit me with your best shot.
