Now that the kids are back in school and busy with their homework, it’s the perfect opportunity for you to train for a marathon. Not a real marathon—I ran a half marathon once and couldn’t move for 3 days. Instead, I’m talking about couch marathons, where I catch-up on some great shows through binge-watching. Perhaps you can train for your own couch marathon and get current with some popular television series?
So, grab your remote control, crank up the home theater projector, and consider marathoning your way through some of my favorite shows:
A mild mannered father-next-door and chemistry teacher gains a new perspective on life, becomes fearless, and decides to enter a dangerous world of crime and drugs after being diagnosed with advanced stage cancer. Emmy® Award-winning drama from AMC is now in its final season, season 6. The first five seasons are available via Netflix.
After 10 years of living a law-abiding new life and newly engaged, Piper Chapman is sentenced to 15 months in a women’s federal prison for transporting a suitcase full of money for an international drug smugler. Orange Is The New Black was developed by Lionsgate and is a Netflix original TV series. This is one of 21 straight-to-Netflix programs released in 2013.
Another Emmy® Award-winning series. Netflix brought the comedy series, Arrested Development, back to life in 2013 after it originally aired on Fox from 2003 – 2006. The critics loved it but the viewership fell below expectations according to Wikipedia. The show follows a incredibly dysfunctional formerly very wealthy family and their fictitious life of luxury set in Newport Beach, California.
Now in its fifth season, The League is a semi-improvised comedy about a fantasy football league, a group of longtime friends, and their lives. The friends are endlessly making fun of each other and have great chemistry. Some compare the show to longtime favorite Seinfeld, according to IMDB.
