Why?
Cuz I binge shows like a mother lover.
I am currently catching on all comic related shows.
In the past week I have watched The Cloak & Dagger series. It was ok, as it was targeted for a younger audience, it didn’t really tickle my fancy too much, but I really enjoyed how they built up the characters.
I also watched Runaways, and it suffered the same problem as C&D, trying to reach a younger audience, but again, I really enjoyed the character development.
Season 3 of Preacher was amazing. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it.
The Tick is wonderful. Funny, yet somewhat serious. Much better than the previous live action attempt., which was full of a lot of slapstick and easy laughs. The new one was actually filled with plots and backstories, as well as some slapstick. :slight_smile:
Right now, I am struggling through The Gifted, which is based in the X-men universe. It is just as good as Heroes, and just as bad. For the exact same reasons. I dunno…maybe season 2 will see an improvement.
I’m not going to talk about Daredevil, as the news is still too fresh, the pain is too real.

I didn’t and don’t read comics, but I like Preacher quite a bit.

Right now I’m plowing through King of the Hill. Its an old favorite and never had the chance to just go straight through it. Re-watching Deadwood.


#3

Binged Sinner most recently - it was pretty great


#4

Just about through all seasons of Jersey Shore, again. Think Party Down South or Bad Girls Club is next


#5

Yes, I’m about 4/5 episodes into Sinner season 2, decent follow up second season they did there


#6

lol the jersey shore, reality tv is scripted anyways


#7

Your complaint here being?

The whole enjoyment is in a bunch of maladjusted youths making a poor spectacle of themselves. Scripted or not, if it’s sufficiently cringeworthy, sign me up!

Honey-Boo-Boo mama neck gravy. Yeah, now it’s on! Get me some Go-go juice


#8

not complaining, it really is a funny show


#9

I know!

My partner and mine’s favorite brainless binge watch is Forged in Fire. Its a reality TV competition w metalsmiths who forge knives and other things. Neither of us are really “weapons people” but seeing the process is really sort of soothing.

XD

@chasedobson That’s too funny, I’ve come across YT videos on that and, yeah, just something about that process that’s just strangely alluring.
