Go-to movies and TV


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is:

Bingeworthy TV Shows/Amazing Movies

I’ve gone with 5 go to movies and 5 bingeworthy series.  Basically, the movies are ones that I’ve watched so many times that I can quote them!  They’re comfort films, which isn’t necessarily a reflection of the content but more that they’re films I can have on in the background:


Young Frankenstein – I just love this movie and the humour

Princess Bride – another film with my type of humour and also a film where I love the book and the film equally.

For some strange reason disaster movies are the type of films I can have on in the background, why?  I don’t understand it either but I was talking to a couple of collday eagues and they liked exactly the same type of movie and watch them over and the over too!  Strange but true, so:

Dante’s Peak – volcanoes


Twister – no explanation necessary!


The Day After Tomorrow – severe weather warning

day after

In terms of five bingeworthy series:

Stranger Things – this is just a must watch for me.  I literally watched all of these in quick succession  and series two too.  I probably watched 3 or 4 episodes per night.

Game of Thrones – I didn’t originally watch this series but then I just became embroiled and watched all of it very quickly.  When is the last series due out – come on, chuck me a bone here.

Breaking Bad – this is a series that we got into originally but then stopped watching so we decided recently to rewatch it all again through to the end – we’re completists!

The Sopranos – I loved this, in fact it might be time for a rewatch.

Band of Brothers – OMG – this series is just incredible.  I’ve watched the box set a few times and it never gets dated.

So, what’s your go to movie and series???
