Binge-worthy: What are you watching lately?

Aron and I are getting close to finishing up the second season of Netflix’s Friends From College which, in spite of my total and utter annoyance with one of the central characters (Ethan) and the terrible first-season reviews, routinely makes us laugh out loud. In fact, I look forward to it in a way that I didn’t with The Good Place, our just-prior go at an evening comedy show. I thought I’d love it (because Kristen Bell is my favorite), but I just found myself wanting to re-watch episodes of The Office instead.

Which is all to say: we are going to need something new soon.

So far, I’ve been told I need to watch Schitt’s Creek—the Canadian sitcom, created by Eugene Levy and his son Daniel Levy that everyone is suddenly talking about; and Russian Doll—a choose-your-own-style riff on Groundhog Day starring the magnetic Natasha Lyonne that Esquire called “the first great show of 2019.

What else should be on my list?

In comedic vein (i.e. not Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Narcos, or Peaky Blinders—all favorites. And also not The Crown or Downtown Abbey—love them), Catastrophe probably stands out to me as the thing we most enjoyed cringing and laughing at together. And it took us a little while to come around, but also great: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. 

Alone, I’ve recently been hooked by Younger (more like obsessed!), Bunheads, and Better Things (which I wrote about, here).

Comedic or not, what are you watching? What have you loved? 

P.S. The relationship-benefits of binge-watching. And choosing shows for kids.
