Netflix and Chill

I have to admit that I'm a total Netflix junkie. I rarely have the time, patience or energy to watch a full movie but I can conveniently binge watch old episodes of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, while whipping up dinner for the family or folding laundry. Win- Win situation!

I decided to list some of my favorite shows, as I'm always on the look for new series to get addicted to watch while I multitask. What are your favorites and have you watched any of the following? 

Designated Survivor
A political action drama about a low level cabinet member who becomes President after an attack on the Capitol kills everyone above him  in the Presidential line of succession.

The show reminds me of the 24H series, with a little less action, more drama and politics. Desperately waiting for season 2 to start! 

A conspiracy thriller that follows the journey of Bob Lee Swagger, a highly-decorated veteran who is coaxed back into action to prevent a plot to kill the President. 

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate Ryan Philippe in camo gear? Nothing else to say really.  

13 Reasons Why
Follows teenager Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life.

I might just be slightly too old to fully relate with most of the issues presented in the show, but it definitely sparks up conversation. Every episode is a total cliffhanger so prepare to binge watch. 

A bipolar CIA operative becomes convinced a prisoner of war has been turned by al-Qaeda and is planning to carry out a terrorist attack on American soil.

Im only a few episodes in to the first season, but so far it seems promising. I'm curios to see how it all ends. 

Gilmore Girls 
A dramedy centering around the relationship between a thirtysomething single mother and her teen daughter living in Stars Hollow, Connecticut.

I started watching GG from season 1, during my house chores. Love this easy going comedy drama and I'm excited to see who Lorelai ends up with!

American Crime story: The people vs. OJ Simpson
This limited series brings viewers inside one of the most prolific American court cases of the 20th century -- the O.J. Simpson murder trial -- from the lawyers' viewpoint. 

Interesting documentary about one of historys biggest court cases in the US. I was pleasantly  suprised with the row of actors like David Schwimmer. Also a must watch for any Kardashian fan. 

A chronicled look at the criminal exploits of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, as well as the many other drug dealers who plagued the country through the years.

Very interesting show about drug cartels and corruption in Colombia. For anyone not 'familiar' with the dephts of corruption it can be very eye opening. If you liked this you will also like the movies (1 and 2 ) Elite Squad, also starring brazilian actor Wagner Moura. 

A Kansas family relocates to Beverly Hills, where their two children adapt to the infamous social drama of West Beverly Hills High.

Totally not for my age group, but so fun to watch. I actually watched this series occasionally years ago on tv and decided to watch the whole series when I found it on Netflix.
