Binge-able Netflix Shows

It’s that time of the summer that I start wanting it to be Fall. Back to a slower-paced life, when I had kids, back to a schedule with school starting, back to inside.  So if you feel the same, here are some great shows to binge watch on Netflix.

Master of None — the second season of  this show has been on Netflix for quite awhile, but on the off-chance you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. It’s smart and funny.

GLOW —  was a nice surprise when I watched it.   GLOW stands for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling and is based on a 1980s TV show. It has Marc Maron in it and a couple other actresses you’ll recognize. It’s a ridiculous concept but it’s well done and hilarious.

The Standups — It’s six, 30-minute episodes of a different standup comedian each time.  I enjoyed all but one of the standups.

Crashing — In exchange for low rent, a hodgepodge group of 20-something tenants set up residence as property guards in a disused hospital, where hilarity ensues. It’s hilarious. Definitely check it out.

Ozarks — Jason Bateman has taken his family from Chicago to the Ozarks so he can keep them alive and launder $5M.

Black Mirror — I don’t know where I was in 2011 that I missed the beginning of this series but it’s still eery. I’d compare it to The Twilight Zone with all the stories pertaining to future technological advances affecting humans lives.

I guess I like comedies. Ha! Enjoy.
