Quarantine Binge-Watches

Quarantine Binge-Watches

Like a lot of you, I’ve been binge-watching a lot of stuff during this self-isolation. As of today, I’m at 50+ days at home and while it’s been a very odd and surreal time, it’s given me the opportunity to work through a chunk of my To Watch list. So…it’s strangely satisfying? And distracting from everything going on. That being said, I thought I’d share some of the things that I’ve been watching in case you need some ideas for things to watch. Or you’re just curious about everything that I’m watching. Either way, here we go.

My movie list has been massive so if you want to see what I’ve been watching, I’ve been tracking everything on my Letterboxd profile. It would take forever to list it all here, and why bother when it’s listed on there. I think I’ve watched more movies in self-isolation than I did for the entirety of last year.

TV isn’t as easy to track in an easily shareable way online so here’s a list of what I’ve consumed in self-isolation (in no particular order):

  • Pushing Daisies: The Complete Series
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12
  • Legends of Tomorrow Season 1-5
  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine S7
  • RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race Season 1
  • I’m Not Okay With This Season 1
  • Never Have I Ever Season 1
  • What We Do in the Shadows Season 1
  • The Magicians Seasons 3-4
  • Too Hot to Handle Season 1
  • Tiger King
  • Modern Family Seasons 1-
  • Literally all of the Bon Appetit YouTube channel
  • The Circle USA
  • Galavant: The Complete Series
  • Dead to Me Season 2
  • Broadchurch Season 2

Legends of Tomorrow is maybe my most surprising fave from this whole thing. Season 3 and beyond just leans into it being super campy and you can tell that the cast and crew are having a blast working on it. It’s wonderful, and exactly the kind of mindless fun that I needed during all of this.

Never Have I Ever was also a surprise, and one that I almost passed on watching until my friend Tate told me to check it out. It’s funny, relatable, and well-written – I highly recommend it!

Pretty much everything else is stuff that folks already know and love (I think everyone is on the Bon Appetit bandwagon right now…) so I won’t go into that too much, but if you’re curious about my thoughts on anything from the list, give me a shout, and let me know what you’re watching in the comments!
