I took a break from pretty much all of my responsibilities over the holidays and used my free time wisely – to binge watch shows, ha! 🙂 Here’s what I’ve been loving:
The Morning Show on Apple TV
How could this show not be good when it stars Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell?! I finished this wayyyy quicker than I care to admit! It’s about the people on early morning TV and you can’t help but see the parallels between Matt Lauer and Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) though I don’t think the show is technically based on him. Either way, it sheds light on important issues and is a show I literally couldn’t (and didn’t!) stop watching!
The Good Place on NBC
I am catching up on The Good Place as I type this. I have a newfound love for Kristen Bell – I have been listening to Dax Shepard’s podcast and I just love their relationship. This show is easy to watch – one of those that you can even just have on in the background – and you can watch it over and over again and catch new funny parts. It’s is on it’s final season so you can catch up on Netflix or on demand and then watch the rest live!
Servant on Apple TV
Disclaimer: I don’t recommend watching this (or even reading this or the show synopsis) if you are pregnant or recently gave birth. After I got over the initial plot (the aftermath of a baby passing away at 13 weeks), I was pretty hooked. While it can be kind of hard to watch, it’s addicting and soooo spooky. Definitely for those who love a good psychological thriller. The 10th (and final) episode of this season comes out this Friday.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is about a female standup comic in the 1950s. I really loved the first season. Season 3 just came out at the beginning of December but I’m still catching up on it. I don’t find it to be as addicting as some of the other shows on this list but I’m still invested and want to see how they finish out the season!
YOU on Netflix
This show seems to be taking the world by storm and I get why! It’s not often that the second season of a show is JUST as good as the first but I think this one definitely is. It stars Penn Badgley (Gossip Girl, anyone?!) who plays a creepy stalker. I loved him and hated him all at once. They definitely set it up for a season 3 and I already can’t wait!
Cheer on Netflix
I just started this last night and stayed up WAY too late getting to episode 4. It follows the Navarro College cheerleaders as they compete for the national championship. I cheered in high school but this is next level intense. I didn’t understand what all the hype was about when I first heard about it but it’s surprisingly so, so good! I was watching it with Greylen and she started stunting with her American Girl dolls, ha!
What are you watching right now? Any must sees?!
