Weekend Binge of Choice

Who doesn’t love Netflix? Nor who can say they haven’t binged watched their way through a show over a weekend. I am guilty of both counts. I no longer have cable, but love tv shows, so I watch everything online. Making Netflix a very large source of entertainment. So I thought I would share my top 5 binge & repeate shows (the ones I can go back to over and over and over and they never get tired or old).

  1. Supernatural

“Two brothers witness their mother’s paranormal death and are trained to fight by their father, who aims to hunt down the thing that killed his wife.”

I started watching Supernatural when it aired in 2005, when I was in high school and could watch all the cable I wanted (those were the days!) I started watching it because I am an avid fan of Gilmore Girls and Jared Padalecki (who played Dean in Gilmore Girls) plays Sam Winchester. But I soon found out this show was completly diffrent then Gilmore Girls! There are tons of things I love about the show or that made me fall in love with the show. One of which being Dean’s car a 1967 Chevy Impala- who could not love that-so classic! Now in it’s 11th season, I get to eagerly await the release of new seasons to Netflix, and be warry of being spoiled by the internet of what is happening in the show.

2. Chopped.

When I did have cable I use to come home and flip the tv on to food network. It’s great background noise, and if you actually want to watch then it can become very addicting. Chopped is a reality-based cooking game show serise that pits four chefs against each other competing for a grand prize of $10,000.

3. The X Files.

The X-Files, watching them as a child I was a bit freaked out, but then they were put on Netflix and I have seen all the episodes four times now. Orginally premiering in 1993, and ending in 2002, the show has two main characters FBI special agents Fox Mulder & Dana Scully. Together they investigate X-Files, or rather marginalized, unsolved cases involving the paranormal. If your crazy about the X-Files then it’s worth noting that Sunday, January 24, a six-episode miniserise will air on Fox.

4. Bones.

I started watching this show because of my mom, she freaking loves this show! Then I realized David Boreanaz (who played Angel-on his own show + in Buffy the Vampire Slayer) was in it, and I was hooked. The series is loosely based on the life and writings of novelist and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs who also produces the show. The show followsTemperance “Bones” Brennan and Special Agent Seeley Booth who solve FBI cases involving human remains.

5. Ghost Adventures.

I love scary things, I love the entire horror genera. Soooo of course I would binge watch Ghost Adventures! I started watching Ghost Adventures when I was in high school, with my best friend. Every Friday night we would have pizza or burritos and Jamba Juice and settle in to watch the new episode. The show follows ghost hunters Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin as they investigate locations that are reported to be haunted. I think I also find the whole idea of capturing paranormal things fascinating, despite how overly dramatic Zak is (tho it has gotten a bit better as the seasons go on..).
