Currently Watching #9

netflix binge ideas

It’s finally happening, the nights are getting darker, the leaves crunchier and the need for an extra layer or two is swiftly upon us. As much as I love being out in the Autumn/Winter, I can’t deny I love the hibernation it brings too. And with hibernation comes the need for entertainment and so, here’s what I’ve been currently watching to get my hibernation going!

Great British Bake Off v2.0

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to actually like the new show but, well, it’s not all that new is it? Nothing bar the presenters have changed and the bakers, as always, have thawed my would-be frozen heart. It’s exactly like watching this original BBC version only the ad breaks are annoying - but at least we can pee/make a brew during the bake off now!

Narcos season 3

Ah I loved season 2 so much I didn’t realise I hadn’t even finished it! Oops! But we did last night so now it’s straight on to season 3! I’ve loved the show so far so can’t wait to see where the post-Pablo tale takes us next!

Reign season 2

I feel like I’ve mentioned this young and trendy period drama already but it took me a while to work through season 1. It’s brilliant background TV and such an easy watch, with the odd storyline really pulling me in. I also love the soundtrack, especially when they re-do a modern song with a period twist. If nothing else, every dress our lovely Mary wears is beyond swoon worthy, oh to have access to that wardrobe department!

The Prestige

I cannot, CANNOT believe I have never seen this film before! Like, why didn’t anyone tell me how bloody amazing it is? Not only is it a fabulous cast but it had a storyline that had me completely enthralled from start to finish (I didn’t scroll through my phone once!). And Bowie as Tesla?! Who kept this is a secret from me for so long? Naughty!

The Defenders

Must admit, I didn’t think I was going to like this one. Out of all the main cast, Daredevil is the only reason I wanted to watch it! But I’ve got to admit, it kept me entertained and it turned out pretty good. Iron Fist does my head in, that has yet to change and Luke Cage was more annoying than I remember but for Daredevil and even Jessica Jones, it’s well worth a watch!

The Other Boelyn Girl

An oldie but a goodie, this popped up on my recommended and I had to give it a re-watch. The book is by far one of my favourites by Phillipa Gregory (and better than the film adaptation IMO) but the film is an easy watch. Everything moved a bit quick and it’s much less focused on Henry/Anne which is a nice change from the tales usually told around this time period. Another brilliant cast too!


If there’s a show I seriously binged on recently, Outlander season 2 was it. As much as I loved season 1, season 2 just had be spellbound and on the edge of my seat. I don’t think I’ve loved a fictional couple as much as I love Jamie and Claire and with season 3 getting ready to start, I genuinely cannot imagine what terrors and tortures our beloved time-parted lovers are going to face! Another can’t scroll through my phone when watching tv-show!

American Horror Story - Cult

I am terrified. Genuinely, hand on heart terrified of the new season, and no, that’s not of Evan’s blue silly string hair. It has taken me a lifetime to get over my fear of clowns and suffice to say, it’s took less than an hour for that fear to come right on back! There are not enough lights I can put on that makes this any more of a comfortable watch right now! 

What have you been watching from under the covers?

Until next time,

  1. I love Anerican Horror Story!! Ahh, i couldn't wait for it to come back on. I have a thing about holes (i had no idea it was so common), so that makes my skin crawl. The Prestige is awesome too, i watch it everytime i see it on.
