What to Watch This (or Any) Long Weekend – July 2015

July 2, 2015

We have another long weekend coming up (well I do, so yay for me!) around the 4th of July…so I thought this might be a fine time to follow up on my April Binge TV watching post (go, check it out now!).

As always, check out the lists and let me know what you think. What are your favorite shows on streaming? Leave you comments and suggestions! I’ll catch ya I the comments section.

  • Daredevil (Netflix) – 13 Episodes – It’s dark, it’s bloody and action filled… and it’s Marvel? Yes, so much yes. Marvel’s direct to Netflix TV series is just delightful, from the newest British import superhero to the many layered villain, Vincent D’onofrio’s Wilson Fiske.  I could gush for days, just go watch it now before someone (like me) spoils it. Mark reviewed the full series, check it out for full details.


  • The Inbetweeners – (Netflix) – 3 Seasons, 18 (25 min) Episodes – Not for the easily offended. A raunchy little British comedy about 4 friends navigating high school in all of its awkward glory.  So awkward, so vulgar…they had to make 2 movies to follow it up.

  • Strike Back – (Amazon Instant Video) – 2 Seasons, 20 Episodes – A former American soldier and a British agent team up to fight terrorists. Lots of violence and just as much sex. Not for everyone, but you have to appreciate how this show just goes for ‘it’.

  • Vikings – (Amazon Instant Video) – 2 Seasons, 19 Episodes – This TV show from the History channel is not watered down for primetime viewing.  Pillaging, sorcery, murder, wives with fleeting alliances…watch and be captivated by Ragnar Lothbrok, the legend.


  • You’re the Worst – (Amazon Instant Video, not on Prime yet) – 10 episodes –Relationships in their ugliest form, between selfish people, surrounded by uncomfortable comedy.  So wrong, but so right. Season 2 will be out this Fall! Ummm… has anyone noticed that I love awkward TV?

Streaming Wish List

All of the previous list with a few additions. We started watching Peaky Blinders, and it is just as amazing as I’d hoped…just haven’t finished yet.

  • The Wire – (Amazon Instant Video) – I have started watching this, but I’m only halfway into Season. 1. Interesting story, can’t wait to see what happens next.
  • Sense 8 – (Netflix) – Looks weird, right up my TV binging alley.
  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – (Netflix) – Let’s face it, with Marvel everywhere, this was inevitable.
  • Catastrophe – (Amazon Instant Video) – I’ve heard rave reviews, and I need some more funny TV in my life.

Happy Long Weekend All!

    Daredevil was brilliant. Binge watched it when it was released, amazing show, just perfect. Been watching it again recently, enjoying the show even better this time around, certainly a good series to enjoy again and again!
