Binge watching!

Posted by Sunni Hemingsen @sunnihemingsen, Apr 10, 2018

What have you binge watched? What are you binge watching now? What do you recommend for others?
What's your favorite binge-watching snack? 🙂

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a great watch.

Working my way through Parks and Rec and Elementary. So many episodes – it's going to take months!

I loved West Wing!

You can't binge watch it because it is a brand new medical drama that just started this fall, but I can already tell New Amsterdam is going to be a new favorite.

Hmmm, have watched Sherlock, Broadchurch and Longmire. West Wing is a little too old for me but I might have to try a couple of your other suggestions!! Currently watching Ozark but must say it is getting a little dark.

I'm glad people keep adding to this … it's a good go-spot for recommendations 🙂
@bmccort We have a 14-year-old who's now watching shows including Parks and Rec (and The Office, and Scrubs, which I appreciate even more now, working in healthcare) that we watched when they were new. It's fun to rewatch them together … and I now like Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler on Making It.

Our recent binges: The Good Place, and This is Us

Has anyone else caught the new series, "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo," on Netflix? It's providing me with good inspiration and motivation to declutter and simplify. I love seeing the before and after shots of rooms and closets. The change in participant attitudes is also noticeable after they declutter and they seem much lighter, happier, and free-er (is that a word?). I can't help but think of the sustainability benefits to living a decluttered and more spacious lifestyle – less consumerism, less waste (after the decluttering anyway), and improved mental well-being. I highly recommend the series!

I haven't seen the series, but will look for it. I did just read an article that mentioned Konda (USA Today, Jan. 7 online). The article touched on "mindful consumerism," and considers an alternate view point, of those who are "forced to live sparsely." (And, as an aside, I'm going to see if you've touched on this in the Go Green group 🙂

I had never heard of this series until yesterday, and this is the third mention. Cool – I need to check this out. I did some decluttering and organizing over the holiday break and I can attest to how much better I feel!

I read Marie Kondo's book last year – The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I was inspired and went through my closet and drawers and some other areas of my house. But…. have not kept it up, lol. Maybe if I watch this I will get inspired again. I did get rid of a lot of stuff that was just taking up room though. I recommend the book.

I just finished Handmaidens Tale and now am watching Good Girls!!
