So, in the winter months my sleeping patterns are very irregular, which means I'm up a lot in the wee hours of the morning.  I don't mind, because it gives me a chance to binge watch and catch up on tv shows I don't watch during normal waking hours.  Some shows I've been watching...

Orange Is The New Black:  I never watched this during its original run, and am really enjoying it.  I'm into season 2.

End of the F****ing World:  A teen sociopath/antisocial personality decides to ramp up his penchant for animal torture by murdering someone.  A female classmate presents herself as a perfect target, but things quickly go awry.

Everything Sucks:  Set in a 90's high school, it's a coming of age series in the vein of Freaks and Geeks.  Plenty of clever 90s references and a pretty good storyline so far (except for the hapless principal angle).


So, how about y'all?  What's your latest obsession?

My wife went to high school (same grad year) with the actor who plays the gym teacher in Everythjng Sucks.

The entire premise is ridiculous when you have access to the money and choose not to accept it.  That, and time and time again White makes the worst decision possible.  It makes the problems so avoidable that it’s hard to empathize with him.

The Crown was a fun binge watch on Netflix.  Season Two came out right before Christmas, I think.

Just binged watched Everything Sucks as well.  I was a sophomore in fall 96 in high school so it hit home for me with the music and movie references.

Speaking of binge watching, I’m looking forward to season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet in a few weeks.  Underrated comedy zombie series and Drew Barrymore’s best role in years.
Santa  Clarita looked like a winner I'll check it out.

A classmate of my daughter's went to Kate Mulgrew's (Red Reznikov !)  book signing when she published a biography a few years ago.  Grace said Kate was having fun looking at the attendees and guessing why they were a fan- older women, from when she was on Ryan's Hope (70's soap), guys, from when she was Captain Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager, etc.  Kate takes one look at Grace in her khaki pants and flannel shirt and Doc Martens and says, "You gotta be Orange Is the New Black!"  :lol:
:D

Funny story!

Mom.

Sitcom currently in it's fifth season. It stars Anna Farris (from the Scary Movie series) and Allison Janney (The West Wing) as mother and daughter who are both recovering alcoholics. It covers their road to staying sober and them trying to rebuild their strained relationship with each other. Lots of really funny stuff but it also gets serious since addiction is a major topic on it. Great performances by both Farris and Janney.
I'll have to check this one out.

Nerdy but entertaining, and the lead actor is very handsome!  Murdoch Mysteries, from the CBC.  It did have 7 seasons on Netflix but they recently came off.  All 11 seasons are on Acorn TV, though.

One of my all-time favourite shows.  I've watched it from Day One.

I am hooked on the British drama "Call the Midwife."  I just discovered it recently. Sometimes I have to mute the screaming during the birth scenes, but otherwise I love the show.

Currently my wife and I are watching Sons of Anarchy, which until this week I've never seen a single episode of. We're only on the 1st season episode 8 but so far it's really good.

I watch Orange is the New Black and S2 is probably the best. S4 is (by far) they worst. Pu-ssey is the best!

The entire premise is ridiculous when you have access to the money and choose not to accept it.  That, and time and time again White makes the worst decision possible.  It makes the problems so avoidable that it’s hard to empathize with him.

And I'm getting to the point where I might fastforward any scene Skler is in.

5.  The wife (Skyler) is destroying the middle of the show I'm in.  She started off horrible, got more horrible, got much better, got bad, and is now horrible again.

And Walt was an obstinate ass in season 1, but he’s insufferably stupid in season 5.  All his problems can be solved time and time again, but he chooses the dumbest options possible.
