    Hi all,

    Since a lot of people’s jobs have shut down and are social distancing, I was wondering what people were binging on to get through?

    I recently caught up on an anime that was recommended to me, “Cells at Work,” which I actually started watching before things got really bad. It’s about cells in the body fighting off infections. It’s funny and violent and weirdly moving at times, and legit educational. It’s basically “Inside Out” meets “Kill Bill” and it’s alarmingly relevant right now.

    That sounds interesting, I’ll have to check that out! I’m watching Catastrophe for the first time, Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney are hysterical in it and I’m really enjoying it. I’m also rewatching Homecoming because I can’t understand how Julia Roberts didn’t get nominated at the Emmys for that show. I had her WINNING. It’s such a quick paced, Hitchockian piece of television. I’ll binge the first 3 episodes of Little Fires Everywhere tomorrow and then try to get started on season 3 of The Good Fight.

    I recently started a free trial with AppleTV and started The Morning Show. Next I will re-binge The Americans, then I’ll re-binge Big Little Lies before Hollywood and The Eddy are released on Netflix.

    Finally going to get around to finishing The Handmaid’s Tale season 3. Will also likely be fully jumping on the Succession train (never got past episode 4). Might try out The Americans or The Leftovers. Will also probably be keeping up with more weekly-releasing premieres over the next few months just because I’ll have more time for more shows.

    The quality of this quarantine.

    I am watching Buffy for the first time (finishing season 1). But I am thinking about watching Battlestar Gallactica first.

    im Isolating for two weeks so need some good things to watch. I’m thinking maybe Ozark as it’s on Netflix (in UK so don’t have HBO or anything). I’m also waiting for Hollywood to come out on Netflix. I started stranger things last year but never got to finishing it so I’ll probably give that ok. I also wanna watch Killing Eve again before the new season comes out

    Well, between the 100 of youtube videos I’m watching about the coronavirus (which is maybe not the best way to stay sane), I have been watching Succession S1. I will start S2 very soon, then will watch Watchmen S1 and Maisel S2-3. Of course, I also have my weekly shows (Westworld, This Is Us, Little Fires Everywhere and hopefully The Plot Against America). HTGAWM returns in two weeks, yay!

    But sometimes I just need my occasional episode of “Glee,” too.

    Emmys FYC - "Unbelievable" and "The Handmaid's Tale" in all categories; Viola Davis in Best Drama Actress for the final season of "HTGAWM;" "Ozark:" Drama Series, Laura Linney (Best Actress) and Julia Garner (Best Supporting Actress)

    I’m less binge watching and more catching up steadily on shows I haven’t finished. Currently, this mainly features alternating between The Man in the High Castle, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Deuce, Hunters and Sorry for Your Loss. With each of these, there’s a reason I haven’t finished it quickly though so when something new comes along I watch that instead.

    Which ep of Handmaid’s are you on?
