Netflix and binge #6 – White Collar, Riverdale and How I met your mother

Hi guys!

It’s my turn again to give you some in-tell about the shows I’ve been watching on Netflix lately. It was quite a challenge to be original, since I’ve been talking about ‘my’ series during the series introductions as well, but I gave it my best shot and I hope you like it anyway! For those of you that didn’t ready my Netflix and Binge last time, here’s a little list to get to know me:

Team member: Judith
Has been on Netflix for: Around 2 years
Hours of Netflix every day: depends on the day, but 3, maybe 4?
Currently binge-watching: …Avatar: the last airbender. Go ahead, judge me, I don’t care ♥
Favorite binge-moments: While I have to study…

Now that that is clear again, it’s time to talk about some series I’ve watched lately!

1. White collar
White Collar PosterAired: 2009 – 2014
Seasons: 6
Episodes: 81
Total time: 3240 min (around 54 hours)
Netflix rating: 4,9/5,0
IMDb rating: 8,3/10

A white collar criminal agrees to help the FBI catch other white collar criminals using his expertise as an art and securities thief, counterfeiter, and conman. [IMDB]

First of all, this handsome conman that constantly knows how to charm me even though he’s just a character on a TV show. I mean, look at him. But okay, besides Matt Bomer’s good looks, this show is also really good and I do recommend it (obviously). It’s your typical crime show, but with the twist of watching it mostly from the criminal’s perspective and how he manages to, even with an anklet on that tracks his movements, stir things up and causes some trouble. Give it a try and be as sad as I was when I reached the end of it.

Binge-worthy: 4 Stars (4 / 5)
Addictive: 5 Stars (5 / 5)
Quality: 5 Stars (5/ 5)

2. Riverdale
Riverdale PosterAired: 2017 – present
Seasons: 1
Episodes: 7
Total time: 315 min (around 5,5 hours)
Netflix rating: 4,9/5,0
IMDb rating: 8,0/10

A subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. [IMDB]

Okay, fine, I admit that a show with only seven episodes isn’t much of a binge session, but CAN I JUST CONTINUE TO STRESS HOW MUCH I LIKE IT? Yes? Thank you. Besides, if you wait (and, for fun, just watch white collar in the meantime…) you’ll have an entire season to binge and it’ll definitely be worth it. Seems like a good deal to me. If you want to know more about the show before you start to watch it, just click here and you’ll be redirected to the series introduction I wrote about it!

Binge-worthy:  5 Stars(5 / 5)
Addictive: 5 Stars (5 / 5)
Quality: 4 Stars (4/ 5)

3. How I Met Your Mother
How I Met Your Mother PosterAired: 2005 – 2014
Seasons: 9
Episodes: 208
Total time: 4576 min (around 76 hours)
Netflix rating: 4,5/5,0
IMDb rating: 8,4/10

A father recounts to his children, through a series of flashbacks, the journey he and his four best friends took leading up to him meeting their mother. [IMDB]

Can HIMYM ever not be good for the heart of a binge watcher? 9 seasons, 208 episodes that are all available on Netflix and just keep on going, that’s what I call pure perfection. People that thought of series with episodes that only last 20 minutes are the true heroes (or devils, maybe) since they know what it’s like to ‘just quickly watch one episode’ (even though everyone knows that you’ll end up spending your entire evening on Netflix… let’s face it, it’s true). Anyway… if you haven’t seen this series, shame on you and go watch it, it is legen…. wait for it… dary! Legendary! (Yes. I had to make that cliché joke. Let me be, I’m only human).

Binge-worthy:  5 Stars(5 / 5)
Addictive: 5 Stars (5 / 5)
Quality: 4 Stars (4/ 5)

If you have any recommendations of shows that I should watch, please leave a message down below and I’ll check it out! (even though the odds are that I’ve already watched it, but it’s worth the try?).
