Let’s be honest, who does not like a good binge-watching session on Netflix? Especially rainy Sundays are definitely made for watching an enthralling TV show and cuddling under a warm blanket with hot chocolate and cookies. In this blog post I want to tell you about my favorite TV shows and help you find some really thrilling shows to binge-watch during the weekend. 🙂
Atiye – The Gift
One of my new favorite Netflix shows which I binge-watched recently, is Atiye – The Gift. I loooved the first season and am already waiting for the release of season 2. Atiye is a mystery drama series which is set up in Istanbul. The story deals with the young painter Atiye. After publishing her pictures featuring strange symbols and selling them at her first-ever solo exhibit, her meeting with Erhan, a renowned archaeologist, changes everything in her happy stable life. Erhan discovers some mysterious secrets in one of the most ancient temples on Earth – Gobeklitepe. The secret is in the form of some ancient symbols that he needs to decipher. Atiye, on the other hand, claims that ever since she can remember, she has been making that symbol. The ancient symbol lying in the ruin of the temple and Atiye are somehow connected. Her past is related to the mystery that the symbol holds and Atiye is now on a never-ending quest to find it out. Her entire life that seems perfect from the outside turns upside down.
La Casa de Papel
La Casa de Papel (or: Money Heist) – my all-time favorite show! If you haven’t watched it already, there are 3 seasons on Netflix and every episode is sooo exciting I can barely sit still. It’s about a man – “the professor” – who forms a group out of criminals in order to pull off the biggest heist of all time. You should definitely watch it!
I know, Black Mirror is THE show literally everyone has seen. And I’m also a big fan. I love Black Mirror because of its complexity and the fact that the episodes are independent from each other, so each one has its own cast and another plot. But in general I can say that they are all about the way we are living and how we could/would live when things and technologies change – so it deals with futuristic/sci-fi topics. The episodes are really thought-provoking, just saying! Season 3 is my favorite one.
The Sinner is an interesting mini series with 8 episodes and deals with an average woman who gets involved in a murder one day. Nobody knows why she did that – even she doesn’t know. So in the episodes a detective tries to solve the case and find the motif of the woman. I must admit that it was really thrilling and I finished the series within 2 days. 🙂 Season 2 is also great!
Another Netflix show to binge watch is Manhunt: Unabomber. It depicts a fictionalized account of the true story of the FBI’s hunt for the man known as the Unabomber. I really liked this Netflix show and think that it is absolutely really interesting to get to know the Unabomber’s motives. Big recommendation!
I have one last show for you, which I really liked: Phi. It deals with a renowned psychiatrist, pursuing his dangerous obsession with the ballerina Duru while keeping a lid on his dark past. I especially enjoyed the dance parts of Duru and her outfits. The thrilling story itself made me binge-watch the series within a short time. 😀 Season 2 “Chi” was also absolutely enthralling.
Guys, that’s it for today. I hope you like the TV shows I picked. But since I’m a real binge-watcher I need some more inspiration for new shows and am looking forward to read about your favorites in the comments below. 🙂
