Random Tv Shows & Movies on Netflix I Have Picked Up In Quarantine

 

Ah…Netflix. The bane of my existence. Like honestly, I have wasted so many hours watching random tv shows and movies on Netflix during this quarantine that I’m starting to lose sense with reality. 

Kidding, kidding. Losing sense with reality might be a little too much, but seriously, since two days ago when I first started subscribing to Netflix, I have been having trouble taking my eyes off my computer screen. (Not that I haven’t been doing that pre-Netflix *snickers*)

For someone who likes to brag about how she doesn’t really watch a whole lot of tv shows because she enjoys reading more than anything in the world, it’s hilarious to see how dropping a subscription to Netflix effortlessly destroyed all that belief in the span of 2 days. Not saying that it’s a bad thing––because obvious it’s not––it’s just interesting to finally, finally, finally understand the “Netflix effect” that seemed to have evaded me so far. 

In the past 2 days, I have honestly picked up more tv shows than I ever did in…my whole entire life actually. And now here I am, writing a post about it to share all the knick-knacks that I have collected along my 2 day trip down the Netflix-rabbit-hole.
