I’ll fully admit that I love a good television show, documentary, or movie. I’ve always been one who can multi-task like no other, so I usually just throw something on in the background while I do work around the house or on my computer. If you’re looking for some new things to binge watch, then here are a few things that I have been watching over the past few months!
1. The Act
Like the rest of the world, I became wrapped up in the story of Gypsy Rose and her mother. The original documentary was on HBO and was something that I told everyone to watch. Hulu has recently served up “The Act“, an anthology series around the story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard. If you’re into shows with a true crime twist, then this is a great option. It also has some big names in it such as Patricia Arquette and Chloë Sevigny. It is a story that you have to see to believe! I’m actually currently watching the latest episode as I write this!
If you’re one of the few left on Earth who hasn’t watched “You“, please sign off of your computer, and sign onto Netflix right now. It follows the story of a bookstore manager who falls in love with a girl that he began stalking. There are tons of twists and turns that make this show unpredictable! As someone who watched Gossip Girl like it was her job, seeing Penn Badgley play a similar character to Dan was enough for me. I’ve watched it more times than I care to admit, and I honestly want to watch it again. There is a season two coming up too! You can’t help but think while you’re watching this if anyone is stalking you online!
3. Game of Thrones
Hi, I’m late to the party! I spent years fighting off the popularity of “Game of Thrones“. As someone who has been obsessed with Lord of The Rings since birth, you would think that I already would be on the GOT train. I have become obsessed with the show, picked out my house, and even have become emotionally attached to some of the characters. The new season comes out in just about a week from when I write this, so I’ll be watching the last season to catch up on my favorite characters!
4. The Case Against Adnan Syed
HBO has been ruling my television lately. After the enormous popularity of the podcast “Serial”, they have developed a four-part documentary series based on “The Case Against Adnan Syed“. I listened to the podcast, but it wasn’t something that I was totally able to pay attention to. When I heard that they were releasing the documentary, I literally hopped on the train so fast! It’s such an interesting story, and I’m interested to see where it goes from here.
5. RuPaul’s Drag Race
I’m a huge advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and a huge supporter of the art of drag. I love “RuPaul’s Drag Race” because it brought such a huge topic to the forefront of media, and has been able to enhance the community in a positive way. In addition to that, the queens are outstanding! The looks they create are amazing, they perform like seasoned performers, and I love RuPaul, duh! In case you’re wondering, my favorite drag queen is Alyssa Edwards!
