We at myTalk consume mass quantities of popular culture, devoting ourselves to keeping up with the latest in TV. We’re just like you: we have a lot going on in our lives, so guest host Lindsay Guentzel and I have come up with some shows that are totally worth parking it on the couch for, but that won’t turn you into a total recluse.
The Newsroom – Three seasons, with 10, 9 and 6 episodes per season respectively. Lindsay’s really into this Aaron Sorkin-penned drama about the inner workings of a cable news network. Available on HBO Go.
True Detective – One season, 8 episodes. The show that ushered in the McConaussaince, it follows a pair of Louisiana State Police in their pursuit of a serial killer. Available on HBO Go.
Transparent – One season, 10 episodes. A touching seriocomic look into the lives of a Los Angeles family who faces many transformational experiences. Great writing, fantastic acting. I binged this in one day! Available on Amazon Prime Instant Video. Watch the pilot for free!
Fargo – One season, 10 episodes. Inspired by the 1996 Coen Brother’s classic film, this show delves into the universe set up by the film and creates a fantastic story from disparate characters drawn together by one malevolent man. Available on iTunes (worth the purchase) or by mail through Netflix.
Happy Binging (and please binge responsibly!)
