Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten TV Shows I Plan to Binge Watch.
When it comes to TV shows (and movies as well but to a slightly lesser extent) my to-watch list is almost as long as my to-read list. The only problem is I can’t watch TV as quickly as I can read books, so my list keeps growing and growing and I never seem to make a dent in it. However there are so many shows on my radar, and these are the ten I will be getting around to sooner rather than later (I hope).
I watched the pilot episode of Cloak and Dagger back when I was on holiday and really enjoyed it, so why haven’t I watched the rest of the season? Who knows. When it comes to Marvel’s TV series I’m way behind, I’m going to need to have a ‘Marvel Month’ where I catch up on everything; Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and of course Cloak and Dagger.
This was one of my favourite book series when I was a child, and so far I’ve heard brilliant things about the TV series (better things than I’ve heard about the film that’s for sure). Neil Patrick Harris makes a great Count Olaf, and the trailer I’ve seen look so fun.
This hasn’t been released yet so it’s the only TV show on this list I can say I’m not behind on, but it’s one I’m beyond excited to watch when it finally becomes available. I loved the book and I love Terry Pratchett’s and Neil Gaiman’s writing so I’m sure the TV series will be incredible.
Back before this was released when I saw the trailer for the first season I thought it looked like so much fun, and like a show I’d really love, based on what I’ve heard about the episodes released I’m only more sure that when I finally get around to watching The Good Place I’ll love it.
For some reason I stopped watching Doctor Who around the same time Jenna Coleman joined the cast, or around the time Matt Smith left, or around the time the fiftieth anniversary episode aired. However the introduction of the first female Doctor means I need to start watching again.
The main thing I know about this show was how so many people were devastated when it was cancelled (the same way I was devastated when I heard Brooklyn Nine-Nine was cancelled). It got one last finale, and I suppose one benefit for me is that when I do get around to watching Sense8 I won’t have to deal with any cliffhanger series endings.
Given how my friends have described some of these episodes dark and slightly twisted Black Mirror may not be the best TV show to ‘binge’ watch. There aren’t many episodes in each season though so I feel like it won’t take me long to watch them all. Maybe I’ll see how it goes when I start watching.
Everyone has incredible things to say about Stranger Things, and I actually made a deal with one of my friends that if she watched Game of Thrones, I’d watch Stranger Things. She finished all seven seasons (and loved them) so I need to at least get started on the first season of Stranger Things.
As this is a book to TV adaptation I kind of feel like I need to read the books before I can watch the TV show, and based on both my to-watch and to-read lists chances are I’ll get to the books before I get to the TV show. I’ve got five series to get through so this one is going to be a challenge.
I’ve heard mixed things about Riverdale, so I’m not sure about this one, but the main reason I want to watch it is because they’re doing a Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot as a spin off and that I do want to watch. I’m not sure if I’ll need to watch Riverdale to understand Sabrina, but I feel like I should anyways.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know what TV shows you plan to binge watch? Are any of these shows you want to start watching soon, or have you seen any of them and do you have any recommendations as to which one I should start with?
