11 Series My Family And I Have Shamelessly Finished In An Impressive Amount Of Time

Quarantine made us do it.

11 Series My Family And I Have Shamelessly Finished In An Impressive Amount Of Time

For the past two quarantined months, my family has had the same nighttime routine. Dinner, chat around the kitchen table and go hide out in the basement and watch our TV series. We've always been more TV show type people and not as much movie people. Although, we love a good comedy every now and then. My dad, Mom, sister, and I have done some series binge watching in the past, and so, you can imagine how much we are thriving now that there is literally nothing else to do. We are thriving so much so that we have watched 11 shows in two months.

Shows like 'Outer Banks', 'All American', 'Sweet Magnolias' and 'Dead to me' have really left us hanging since we watched all Netflix has to offer. Sometimes we do some major overlapping with series to switch it up each night. (Keeping up with multiple storylines - a true talent.) These are the 11 shows we've watched in the order we completed them.

Tiger King

After we watched this, we believe Carole Baskin started COVID19. And that's that.

All American

I'm a sucker for a good drama like this. 'All American' gave me vibes of a 'One Tree Hill' and 'Gossip Girl' mix. Now I'm trying to wait patiently for Netflix to release the third season!

Wonderland

'Wonderland' is an Australian TV show that we found on Amazon Prime. It's about a group of friends living in the same apartment complex that is called Wonderland. It's hilarious and has lots of great romance. 12/10 recommend.

Little Fires Everywhere

Hulu's 'Little Fires Everywhere' is a TV show version of the book by Celest Ng that stars my favorite, Reese Witherspoon. If you watched 'Big Little Lies', you will love this one. It killed us that episodes were only released on Wednesdays. But, the ending of the series gave us a lot of satisfaction in a weird way.

The Morning Show

Another Reese Witherspoon show on Apple TV+ that also stars Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell. I definitely recommend you get a free one week trial of Apple TV+ and watch this show. We watched it in two nights.

Outer Banks

This has probably been my favorite series that we have watched. My sister and I say that we wish we wouldn't have watched it so we could start over often.

Waco

Before watching 'Waco', I was under a totally different impression of what actually went down. I'm sure some of it happened differently, but this mini series puts it in a different light. Finished in one sitting which isn't bad because it's educational, right?

One Mississippi

I'll be honest. When we decided to watch this series, I wasn't too pumped. But, I was quickly hooked by comedian, Tig Notaro's jokes and quick witted responses. Tig wrote the semi-autobiography about her life after her mother died unexpectedly and was forced to come back to her hometown. I normally am not a fan of dark comedies, but it was definitely worth the watch. ('One Mississippi' can be found on Amazon Prime.)

Dead To Me

Another dark comedy that is worth the watch. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellni play two people who meet during a grief support group session, and quickly become thick as thieves.. literally. 'Dead to Me' will definitely keep you on your toes, and be prepared to be left on a shocking note especially after all seems okay again.

Sweet Magnolias

*SPOILER ALERT*

Just my mom, sister and I have watched this after my dad goes to bed. We always love a good Hallmark story line and this show does not disappoint. Although, the end of the first season left us on a huge cliff hanger, and the fact that we have to wait who knows how long to figure out who else was in the car with Kyle is really annoying.

Defending Jacob

"Defending Jacob" is based on a book that only my mom has read and knows the ending. It's about a boy in middle school who is accused for the murder of a classmate of his. The entire time you are battling, trying to figure out if he actually did it or not. A new episode is released on Apple TV+ each Friday and we only have one more left that we will definitely be watching this Friday. Hopefully the ending will finally let the truth be known.

What should we binge watch next?

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
