Do you have cable?
I know so many who do not. I cannot live without it.
I love sports, and news, too much to cut the cord. I’m also mad about radio — the immediacy. That said, I love Netflix, mind you I don’t get much time to watch it. When I do watch….I, like millions of others, binge.
Typically, I binge watch when I’ve got the flu – like today. I start something and just keep going. Choosing a show is like choosing a paint colour — I’m sh*tty at it.
I’m a novice. I’ve never watched “Breaking Bad” or “Game of Thrones“… if not for my fabulous friend Nora Ahern — my Guru of all things good to watch — I’d have been lost. She’s given me more than a few gems, shows to get lost in, fall in love with the characters and story.
My parameters: low stress-factor, high entertainment.
We touch on some fairly heady topics here on #mybackyard, but tonight – in my Advil Cold and Flu haze – it’s time to talk about what we love on Netflix. I will show you my list of Nora-approved programs if you show me yours….
(put your picks in the comments section with a little note of why you love it.)
House of Cards (Robyn. Wright.)
Downton Abbey (OMG Maggie Smith)
Mr. Selfridge (helped me over my Downtown withdrawal)
Silk (kept on the British theme)
Episodes (All. Of. It. hysterically funny)
Dr. Foster (still with the Brit theme – great writing)
currently watching: Scott & Bailey Ep 3
OK, back to the meds and my Netflix…..
