We lack the time to watch everything we want to, we have to prioritise and that is why I skimmed down my weekly TV schedule over the years. I just wanted to replace shows with books, and with that, I stopped watching bad TV, mediocre shows and even some good ones. Also, I’m much better with binge watching so sticking to something every week feels too stressful. Yet, there have been regrets, and here is a list of five shows that I stopped watching but am thinking about catching up with.
In 2013, Netflix premiered its first original TV series House of Cards, which was just the beginning for this global movie and TV-show provider. In March this year, Netflix released Flaked, its 20th original series not including the animated and kids shows. Though I haven’t seen all of them, I have seen just enough to compile a this top 5 list of my favorite Netflix original shows.

Another week has passed, I’ve survived a cold (barely as I’m still suffering slightly), I’ve worked six days in a row (half of it while being ill), I’ve seen my second favorite movie this year (from 2014 though, but it still counts) and I’ve thought about making the Commercial Break into a weekly feature uploaded on Wednesdays (or Thursdays because I need a fallback in case I mess up). So.. pretty much nothing has been going on while a lot has happened.
