Today’s topic is TV Shows I Binge. I LOVE period dramas! I watch them all. I wanted to double major in English and history when I was in college, but then I decided that I wanted to graduate in four years, so I downgraded history to one of my minors. History and English go together because English is actually the study of literture, and you can’t understand the literature of a time period without understanding what was happening in the world at that time.
Downton Abbey was my favorite for years. I not only was a loyal weekly viewer when the show was running, but I bought all the DVDs and watched them over and over again, especially the first two seasons. The show was just so beautiful.
Right now my obsession is Poldark. But I have been a huge fan of Aidan Turner for years. I’ve seen everything he has been in, which has mainly been period dramas (Desperate Romantics anyone?).
I mainly watch my historical dramas during the day while my husband is at work because he doesn’t care for them, but I have discovered a little trick. Time Travel shows have been growing in popularity, probably thanks to Outlander. But there is also Legends of Tomorrow and Timeless. This way I get my historical dramas and my husband gets to watch a sci-fi show. It’s a win-win!
So what TV shows do you binge? Let me know in the comments!
