Binge Watching w/ Amazon Fire Stick

It's been over a year since I convinced my household we would be better off without cable. Trust me, it was tough and something I wanted to do for some time but it took a couple years of convincing and I am glad I didn't give up. I am not big on TV, and honestly before this virus I didn't have much time to even Netflix and chill. Now I have a pretty good amount of time, with work being slower than usual; and school being at home. You can say I have currently done my fair share of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, and since many of us are home looking for something interesting to watch I want to share some shows that I feel aren't being spoken about as much as Stranger Things, and Game Of Thrones that I think you would all find really interested in watching right now, with no real spoilers! I have really been loving our Amazon Fire Stick which I was able to connect all of our streaming services on to; to make our lives even easier when enjoying some late night binge watching. For a great price of just $50 you will cancel your cable too!


New Girl - Now, if anyone EVER asks me what they should start watching - this is the show I automatically recommend. Because I can't say it enough. This show literally helped me through my down days. It was all I needed to turn a bad day into a better day. I loved just how much it made me laugh, yet at the same time find a connection with each and every character in the show. I loved them all, and if I had to choose my favorite it would be nearly impossible. I have never laughed so much watching something and it became my nightly routine that I just couldn't do without. So of course once it all ended I felt like I lost a piece of my soul; and nothing else satisfied me. You think im being dramatic? Well just watch season one and you will come to understand me. I promise! 


11.22.63 - I am a huge fan of anything that has to do with time traveling. I WILL watch anything that has that kind of plot twist; and especially if its dated back into the 60's. This show I knew I was going to love as soon as I read the description, but I didn't think it was going to stick with me for years to come and become an all time favorite. I mean first of all, who doesn't love them some James Franco? It is based on the book from Stephen King, which I honestly never read so I have no idea how much of it is the same or not. But what got me was the love story that you didn't even see coming; and you know can't possibly happen - which makes you love it even more of course. I felt like I was living in the 60's and I myself fell into a rabbit hole, it was exciting and I just couldn't get enough. Brace yourself though because the ending made me pretty teary eyed. It's worth every tear though!

Amazon Prime: 

Orphan Black - I remember watching trailer; and thinking it looked good. But as soon as I finished the first episode I realized it wasn't just good - it was GREAT. Really though, I was absolutely amazed by Tatiana Maslany's role, and how perfect she was at becoming all of these different characters that made this show so shocking and mesmerizing. I would forget that it was just one actress playing all these different women. Thats how good she was at it! This is a kind of show where you think you know all the answers - and you believe it is going to go a certain way - but then it turns right around and gets you. There are literally NO basic things going on in this show; and you will never really know what is happening next. That's what I loved most about it. She plays such amazing strong woman; who are all so different, yet still so alike as well. The girl power in this show is off the charts and I felt it all the way through. It's definitely a great sci-fi thriller, with so much comedy in the mix.

Let me know in the comments below if you have watched these yourself, and what was your favorite thing about them? If not , get to it - & share with me some of your favorite binge worthy shows.
