My Summer Netflix Addictions

My Sum­mer Net­flix Addictions

Well sum­mer is here and has been in full swing for the past two months now. I have found myself indoors more, next to the air con­di­tioner, with a cool drink in my hand and some time to waste. So I fired up my Net­flix and  have become engrossed in two sum­mer addic­tions thus far. Over the past few years, I have fallen into the Real­ity TV zone and have failed to watch a lot of the “hot” TV shows going around. I am not a cop drama or detec­tive CSI type so that left out a lot of shows to choose from. I did how­ever find a few jew­els that quenched my need for juicy enter­tain­ment that was good, guilty and just flat out awe­somely fun!

Orange is the New Black

My first addic­tion quencher was Orange is the New Black. I loved all three sea­sons of this show and binge watched all three sea­sons. Yes, I did all three and now I have to wait until sea­son 4 to get more. The cool thing about watch­ing Net­flix is no com­mer­cials and the abil­ity to watch all sea­sons (usu­ally) in a row.

Orange is the New Black is a Net­flix orig­i­nal series so it is only on Net­flix. I really loved this show, it is based in a women’s min­i­mal lock down facil­ity and is cen­tered around the women inmates and guards of this prison. There are a lot of plot twists, mul­ti­ple story lines of the inmates but what I love is the back story. They not only show the present day, day to day of the prison but also how the char­ac­ters got there. I really enjoyed the flash backs and learn­ing about each inmate and how and why they are there.

This series has given me insight into what oth­ers go through, the impact it has on them and their fam­i­lies. I didn’t think I would love this series as much as I did but the act­ing and writ­ing are amaz­ing. You find your­self root­ing for the inmates and wish­ing they could all get out. This show is really well exe­cuted and I highly rec­om­mend it to any­one. It may take you an episode or two but once your in you will be addicted! You have been warned..;)

Gos­sip Girl

My sec­ond Net­flix addic­tion is Gos­sip Girl! Yes, I am like five years late to the party on this one but wow I love this show! I just com­pleted the end of sea­son 6 and the final episode and I am sad lol. No more S and B, no more who is Gos­sip Girl? I got so involved and obsessed with the char­ac­ters of this show.

Gos­sip Girl is based in New York City, upper east side with a bunch of priv­elidged teens going to a pri­vate school. It is like 90210 meets Pretty Lit­tle Liars with a splash of Sex in the City. It is geared more toward the younger crowd but I loved every minute of it. The fash­ions, the char­ac­ters, the plots and scan­dals, love love it all. It does get a bit quirky some­times but you do invest in the main char­ac­ters of Blair, Ser­ena, Chuck, Nate and Dan. The par­ents play a nice role as well with their own plots and storylines.

If you love fash­ion with a bit of com­edy and sus­pense then you will love this show. I watched all six sea­sons over the last few weeks. They have over 20 episodes per sea­son so there is a lot to this show. I am suf­fer­ing from major with­drawals but my “to do lists” will thank me. I keep want­ing to see what Blair and Dorita are doing, no new schemes to watch. I did hear a rumor of a reunion on the inter­webs but that is yet to be seen or heard. Now I just stalk Insta­gram accounts of Blake Lively and Leighton Meis­ter for any clues.

If you are like me and have a seri­ous case of what would Blair Wal­dorf do, then you will be happy to know there are a lot of Gos­sip Girl Insta­gram and Face­book fan sites online. Oth­er­wise you can check out Gos­sip Girl on Net­flix and become addicted all over again like me.
