Binge-Watches 2020: Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

Binge-Watches 2020: Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

2020 has been a whole thing, as I’m sure we can all agree. All these TV shows and movies that I’ve been hoping to find time to get to have magically all gotten watched during self-isolation, and I’m somehow scrambling to find new things that are available on the streaming channels that I have.

I went to check when my last binge-watch update was done, and holy heck, it was only the beginning of July. So since then, I’ve watched an absolutely ridiculous amount of TV, as you’ll see. I haven’t been watching as many movies, but if you’re interested in that, you can check out my Letterboxd profile. But here’s the update!

  • Dear White People S2
  • Dark S3
  • Warrior Nun S1
  • Ducktales S2
  • Euphoria S1
  • Indian Matchmaking S1
  • She-Ra S1-5
  • Doctor Who S12
  • NOS4A2 S1
  • I’ll Be Gone in the Dark
  • Sugar Rush S3
  • The Dragon Prince S2-3
  • Modern Family S8
  • Umbrella Academy S2
  • Glow Up S2
  • Teenage Bounty Hunters S1
  • Normal People S1
  • Trinkets S1-2
  • Card Captor Sakura S1

Warrior Nun was surprisingly delightful? I definitely wasn’t expecting to enjoy it, but it leans into what it is and the result is just a campy Catholic romp.

Euphoria stuck with me. I sat around for a while before starting it like, “Hmm do I really want to watch an ultra-depressing show during an ultra-depressing time?” but I’m glad that I did. Zendaya is incredible in it, and even though it definitely made me cry, it was worth it, and I am still thinking about it.

While pretty much everything else on this list was something that I enjoyed, the only other thing that really stuck with me was Normal People. I flew through that show, and at the end, I found myself weeping on my couch and couldn’t stop thinking about it.

What else have you been watching and enjoying during this year? Always happy for more recs!
