Get out the popcorn bucket, your favorite blanket and dog, and grab the remote. According to Rolling Stone, "Better Call Saul" is the best show of 2020 so far this year, followed by "Brockmire", "Normal People", "My Brilliant Friend", and "Better Things".I haven't even heard of the last four shows, so I guess I better get my viewing on.

A lot of people are still trying to stay home as much as possible, which has to mean good news for those producing all the programming for us to sit at home and watch.

The shows that I'd add to the list didn't make it; but maybe because I'm watching older series. I like to wait until they are tried and true before I waste my time on something that I'm not going to like.

I've been watching about 5 things and I still haven't made it all the way through any of them except for Ozark. I made it through all the series from start to finish during lock down. I've been working on:

  • Outlander
  • Ozark: I'm done with this one...OMG...These people are horrible and this is one of the most creative and terrible series I've ever seen!
  • Schitz Creek
  • Longmire
  • The Ranch.

Better Call Saul is on my list to start, but not until the sunshine disappears. I've been sitting in my front-yard enjoying the sound of silence, fires, flowers, and just being outside on these beautiful afternoons we've been having.

You might have to work outside all day. If that is you, or if you just need something new happening in your life, here is the list you're looking for. Let me know if you binge something and you think it's worth it, and I'll do the same!
