XIPHOS LIST OF APPROVED BINGE WORTHY TV SHOWS

maninchairHEY LOOK A NEW POST! NO SERIOUSLY!!!!!!! I know, I know. I haven’t posted anything in awhile but in fairness nobody else has either so I thought maybe, just maybe, if I did it would get the ball rolling again. Let’s hope so!

Well anyway this isn’t going to be a long post. I’m just going to make recommendations for a bunch of TV shows I think are great for binge watching for different reasons. Most I’ve talked about before probably but this is just a post to get my feet wet for writing again. Let me know in the comments any shows I missed which will be many I am sure. One last thing, this isn’t in any sort of order it’s just as they occur to me.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case- and we both held the opinion that the second series is an absolute televisual atrocity.

Contains serious spoilers below- you have been warned.

Mini Review Resurrection: Game of Thrones.

 

 

 

 

It’s been a while since any of us have done one of these, so I thought that I’d resurrect an old format for a series that’s pretty much universally loved. I have the following disclaimer to add at the top, though: I neither know nor care about the original series of novels it is based on. So I don’t want to hear one “Waaaaaaah, it’s not like the book, waaaaaah” because I don’t know if it is or not and, more importantly, I couldn’t give a red fuck.  Read More…
