Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Artsty Reader. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. It’s a great way to learn more about the bloggers you follow and to find lots of new books. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Bingeworthy TV Shows/Movies.”
I’ve done a few posts on this through the years saying what my all time favourite TV shows are; 2014, 2016 and 2017. (Spoilers: Sherlock, Merlin, OUaT, Grey’s Anatomy, The Mentalist and GoT appear more than once!)
The Last 10 TV Shows I Binged Watch…
This appears again because season 15 is coming out on 27th September and I am super excited. The show is set in a hospital and centers around the life of Merideth Grey and other surgical interns, residents and attending physicians, both in their careers and personal lives. It’s a bit like a soap drama but I’m completely obsesessed with it. Oh, and they’re not afraid to get rid of characters.
Orange is the New Black
OMG why did I wait so long to watch this?!? I’ve watched the first 5 seasons this summer and am savouring season 6 so I don’t have a long wait until the next one. I am SO obsessed.
Piper Chapman is sentenced to 15 months in Linchfield Prison a crime she committed 10 years ago; transporting a suitcase full of drug money for her girlfriend, Alex. In prison, Piper is reunited with Alex, who named her in her trial. The show looks at the relationships between the inmates and their struggles with the prison system. There are flashback to show how other inmates came to be in prison. (Nicky is my fave btw.)
13 Reasons Why
I loved the book and was intregued how they were going to do a second season. I didn’t go in with high expectations but really enjoyed it.
17 year old Hannah Baker has committed suicide. Before she did, she recorded a side on a cassette tape for 13 people the 13 reasons why she committed suicide.
The Fab Five; Antoni (food and wine), Tan (fashion), Karamo (Culture), Bobby (Design) and Jonothan (Grooming) help different people be the best they can be. In some episodes they help re-design their house, in others they help people come out, and in many they help to raise people’s confidence. This is truely an uplifting and tear jerking (happy tears, mostly!) show!
RuPaul’s Drag Race
Start your engines and watch this show. Drag Queens do various competitions including making drag on a dime, out of binbags or like royalty, then the bottom two have to lip sync for their life or be asked to sashay away. It’s incredible.
A show about making a show, in which Matt LeBlanc plays Matt LeBlanc.
Another Netflix drama.
Dexter Tom’s daughter goes missing and her boyfriend is discovered dead. Tom goes searching for her and ends up uncovering a web of secrets.
Girls Incarcerated: Young and Locked Up
Another Netflix TV series which follows inmates of Madison Juvenile Correctional Facility in Indiana. They discover how the girls got to be there and how they’ve changed since being there. For some girls that are released it does a follow up.
5 celebrities are given tasks to complete. These include things like making an exotic sandwich, getting a boulder as far away from the place as possible or to surprise Alex . The Taskmaster (Greg Davies) ranks them, assigning points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the episode wins!
