I love pop culture. I am an avid consumer of books, movies, TV shows. It’s hard to binge watch shows on a sick day when you have to go through the rigmarole of downloading them illegally first.
And then Netflix and Stan came.
They changed my life seriously. At least my sick day life anyway. No more getting up to change discs, just that judgy message asking me if I’m still watching. Just pure guilty pleasure TV shows.
Anything Based on a YA Novel
Preferably with supernatural overtones like The Vampire Diaries/The Originals or ShadowHunters but hey, I’ll watch Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars too. Not fussy over here. There is something about the overwrought storylines that are perfect for staying up late when I should be sleeping.
Jane The Virgin
This is a recent favourite that was gifted to me by the Netflix gods. They declared I might enjoy it and lo they were correct. I love the over the top soapy storylines and the fact that it has his tongue firmly in its cheek.
My husband introduced me to Entourage when we first started dating and I maintain it is Gossip Girl for dudes. Ergo I love it. Also Sloan is way too hot for E.
Great music, hilariously over dramatic. Its like The Real Housewives only more believable. Now with more backstabbing and drink throwing.
I’m not even sure I should put this here because I’m not even ashamed of it. It’s a fantasy musical for crying out loud. Its just awesome. I’ve watched it so many times I can sing the songs by heart.
