This question was asked in another forum. Supplied my response and decided it was a topic that would be fun to blog about.
Binge watching is a luxury of the new generation.
We had no such thing when I was growing up. But I’m glad we have it now!!
My history of being a TV series junkie goes way back. Sunday night was the best night for watching most of my favorite TV shows.
“Perry Mason”, the lawyer who never lost a case.
“Bonanza”, a western about the life of a widower and his 3 loyal and loving sons.
“Mission Impossible”, a team of the coolest secret agents who made the world safe and nobody ever knew because their work was “a secret”.
Also liked “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, mystery/thriller, each episode always introduced by Mr. Hitchcock himself; and “The Twilight Zone”, sci-fi, each episode always introduced by the series creator Rod Serling.
Fast forward, I grew up and got married and my husband liked BBC programs. So I got hooked on BBC TV series which aired on our public television station. Really enjoyed the comedies like “Fawlty Towers”.
Fast forward again, my kids grew up and subscribed to a popular online video streaming service. Many thanks to the inventors of online video streaming. They gave me the best toy ever! With a laptop, a Kindle, a Playstation or X-Box or any electronic device that has the required app or software, I have fun time at my finger tips. 🙂
Insert binge watching! YAY!!
Not only can I binge watch old American shows on this fabulous streaming service, but the BBC series too! Did I mention I also like murder mysteries? Well I do and I even found some very entertaining non-American series to binge watch like:
“Midsomer Murders”, all murders taking place in a community of Midsomer County, 20th century time frame (say the 70s and forward).
“Murdoch Mysteries” , a Canadian show, set in the 1800s, all cases solved by a handsome detective in the Toronto Constabulary.
“Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries”, a lady detective who solves cases in Melbourne, Australia, set in the 1920s. Not only is she smart but she is also quite stylish, a serious fashionista!
My binge watching these days are mostly historical K-drama TV series. My husband suggested a romantic comedy, a historical period drama, titled “Tamra the Island”. Loved it!! Watched it so many times, my kids thought I was nuts! That series lit a fire in me and started me watching K-drama TV shows. To avoid repeating myself, just refer to my previous post Watching Korean Drama Online With English Subtitles.
