Three Shows to Binge Watch


You guys.  I have never watched more TV in my life than I have in this past month.  Between the babies feeding sessions and requiring to be held to nap, the couch and I have been BFFs.  I'm thankful for the Olympics coming at the perfect time, but I've also been keeping busy with these three shows that I can't. stop. watching.  If you're in need of a good binge, check out one of these...

FUNNY: Grace & Frankie
Oh my gosh, did I need this show right after I gave birth.  While based on kind of a deep subject (two husbands leave their wives to marry each other after a 20 year affair), it is hilarious.  The characters are all so well played and you'll laugh through every episode.  We watched an episode a night after coming home from the hospital and it was exactly what I needed with those rough postpartum hormones!

CREEPY: Stranger Things
The hype is real with this one.  I read somewhere that it's basically 'The Goonies go monster hunting' and I couldn't say it better myself.  Set in the 80's, kids start going missing and plenty of other supernatural things are happening around town.  It'll creep you out, but you won't be able to watch the next episode fast enough.  We haven't finished the first season yet, so no spoilers!

DRAMATIC: UnREAL
I will never watch The Bachelor/ette the same way again.  This is a scripted show about the behind the scenes aspects of making a dating reality show (if you followed that, haha).  The drama is literally unreal and I can't believe the lengths the producers will go to to get a good story.  I'm almost done with the first season and have heard the second one is even better.

I also have Shameless and Jane The Virgin on deck.  I'm hoping to get Haddie to start napping somewhere other than my arms though soon so I can do things like eat.. shower.. blog.. you know ;) Taking any tips on how to get her to nap in her bassinet during the day- she does so well in there at night, but prefers to be held for sleeping all day.

Have you seen any of these shows?

  5. I remember those days! I watched SO much TV. Occasionally I could transfer him to sleeping on our bed very carefully. lol. I watch Unreal and it is crazy, but kind of fascinating!

  6. UnReal is on my list to watch! Most days I end up flipping on old Sex & the City reruns, but lets be real - I can quote them all. I should probably pick something new :) ~Hannah

  7. I saw the first season of UnReal and was totally sketched out by it/the Bachelor. Makes you wonder, right? I've seen some interviews with the main character from the show and they have people "behind the scenes" who used to work for The Bachelor so it makes you wonder....I haven't been able to find season 2 though other than the last couple of episodes On Demand.

  9. Stranger Things is next on our list! We're currently wrapping up a marathon of Outlander (so, so good!). Is unREAL on Netflix? I've wanted to watch that forever.

  10. I've not seen any of those but have them on my radar. My Netflix game is slipping.

  11. I absolutely adored Grace and Frankie and cant wait til the next season comes out!!! I tried Stranger Things but ummm I got creeped out in the first episode and my husband was sort of bored so I wasn't made when he said he wasn't feeling it lol. Call me chicken!

  12. I think I'm ready to watch Grace and Frankie again to hold me over until NEXT MAY! Glad you liked it so much! I watched episode 1 and part of 2 of Unreal it was just so dark I couldn't really get into it. Made me cringe the whole time and I'm a total bachelor/bachelorette/BIP fan. Maybe it gets better? Ian and I are on Shameless too, but they are an hour long so we have to kind of carve out when we watch it, but Season 1 is so far so so good! I want to start Stranger Things but not until I finish all the others I started!

  16. Everyone keeps taking about Stranger Things & Unreal... I have serious FOMO! My new guilty pleasure is Married at First Sight! I am seriously way too invested in it!

  17. I got so excited when I read this! We are watching stranger things right now and I am obsessed! I had no idea I would love it so much! Also... I watched Jane the Virgin for a bit - it was okay but I kind of lost interest. And I am on the second episode of Unreal - so bizarre!!!

  18. Jane the Virgin is so perfect for maternity leave! I just finished season 2 on my maternity leave, and it is the perfect light-hearted show. The second season you will have a lot to relate to :)

  22. i am not much of a tv watcher to be honest, sometimes i'll watch things with KC but i'm more likely to pick up a book. that being said everyone i have ever met said they watched a lot of tv when they had a baby lol, reading is just too hard whilst holding a baby, right?! so i'll save these for then. grace & frankie sounds funny, KC and I watched all of stranger things in one day (says the girl who just said she doesn't watch much tv haha), i liked it a lot!

  23. Grace and Frankie is so hilarious, I really need to pick up where I left off with the second series! Stranger Things is SO GOOD. Need them to commission a second series of it ASAP. Need to watch UnREAL as a few friends watch that.

  24. UnReal sounds so interesting to me! And I have heard great things about Grace and Frankie. I need to add both of those to my favorites. I definitely can't do creepy, though, haha!

  25. Sorry for the third comment, but where are you streaming UnReal? I just checked Netflix and didn't see it.

  26. I loved Grace & Frankie! And I just finished Lost....the last season was so confusing!
