As part of our partnership with Netflix as part of the Netflix Stream Team this year, we’ve been sharing about all of the shows and movies we’re streaming including the best Netflix binge worthy shows!
I have a confession to make, despite being so busy with the blog, dance classes, swim lessons, and baseball, I’ve been making time for myself to binge watch! I just can’t get enough of some of the shows I’ve gotten hooked on recently!
My Best Netflix Binge
Fall is such a busy time for us but I’ve gotten hooked on a few shows. When you’ve got the best Netflix binge going, it’s definitely motivation to carve out some “me time.”
So what have I been watching over the past few weeks as part of my best Netflix binge in a long time?
Atypical is one of my most recent Netflix discoveries and I’m so glad I watched it. It must be worth of best Netflix binge status because I fit it in by staying up late on school nights! Oops?
Sam, an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum, decides it’s time to find a girlfriend, a journey that sets Sam’s mom on her own life-changing path as her son seeks more independence.
If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely give it a try. There were so many moments when I could relate to Sam’s parents!
I started watching The Fosters when it first started on television and fell in love with the show. I love the diversity show with the family.
Busy life caught up to me and I ended up falling behind. But Netflix came to my rescue and catching up on The Fosters has definitely been binge-worthy!
Teenager Callie Jacob is placed in a foster home with a lesbian couple and their blend of biological, adoptive, and foster children.
The show is rated TV-14 and brings up many issues that might be discussion worthy with older children.
Riverdale is a show that I started late after seeing friends rave about it. Then life decided TV time was not a priority and the episodes built up in the DVR.
Then the worst thing happened — the DVR had to be replaced. Which means my Riverdale episodes were lost!
Netflix to the rescue! Seriously, Netflix has saved me more than a few times when things like this happen!
Riverdale is a subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.
Riverdale is definitely a contender for best Netflix binge if you like this style of show. I love seeing the characters I grew up with in the comics brought to life in a darker way!
It is rated TV-14 so I make sure to watch it when I’m definitely on a “me time” break!
Then there is Stranger Things. I have to be completely honest about this and admit that I was super late to the game on this one.
If you haven’t heard of Stranger Things by now, then I don’t know what to tell you! I stick to my motto of better late than never!
When a young boy vanishes, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret experiements, terrifying supernatural forces and one strange little girl.
How can that not sound interesting? Because it is. It definitely is. Stranger Things is the best Netflix binge I’ve had in awhile and they good news is that season 2 is almost here!
Stranger Things season 2 hits Netflix on October 27, 2017!
The countdown is officially on!
