I find it almost impossible to just watch one episode of something I like, if another one is available. And Netflix just automatically starts the next episode for you, no work involved. Amazing, and horrible, at the same time. I can't tell you how many unproductive hours have followed the start of a new series. But yeah, it's many.
Currently these are the shows I know I can't watch unless I have nothing else's to do for at least 12 hours (and let's face it, when does that ever happen?!?):
Pretty little liars
Probably made for teenagers, but that doesn't mean that I, as a 29 year old, can't watch it. Right? It's full of drama, scandal, intrigue and is highly unlikely that any of the scenarios would happen in real life, but that doesn't mean it's not highly addictive. You will find yourself thinking "how is that even happening? And why do these teenagers not have families that pay attention?!?", and then you will go online and stalk the main characters, and read page after page of theories about the show. No, really.
My obsession with this show is mainly down to the cheekbones of the main character. I am a serious fan of Matt Bomer, and that is just the way it is. What I really like about this show is the main characters struggle to stay honest and within the law when he is really a con man at heart, makes him very likeable. And his smile is pretty epic too. And so are his abs (ps. Matt Bomer is in Magic Mike XXL with his abs too, probably worth watching just for that).
Grace and Frankie
This is a true gem, an amazing story (no really, you have to watch it) and starring some serious hard hitters: Jane Fonda, Martin sheen and a host of well established actors. I love the story, love the characters and really love seeing a show with grown up characters, not that I am anywhere near their age or get the struggles they deal with, but it is just great watching something a bit more "real". The thought of growing old suddenly isn't that bad when you see these strong women fight on.
This is just the weirdest show, but it really sucks you in (although give it a couple of episodes before you stop watching, it's not great in the beginning). I watched this way way too fast, cancelling plans and ignoring important tasks to be able to watch just one more episode. But why wouldn't I? Once you get into it you just need to know what Abed and Trey will do next, and if Jeff and Annie will ever get together. So you watch another episode until it's all over. I'm definitely supporting the "6 seasons and a movie" chant from fans all over. But you have to watch season 2 to get that reference, so yeah, do it.
