The next show in the line-up of binging has been My 600 lb Life. I don’t know what drew me to it, I just want to watch a bunch of docuseries. (I believe that’s what they are called). It was recommended to me, so I decided why not give it a try. There were three seasons on Hulu that I finished in the matter of a couple of days. I was just so intrigued by to story. Through the entire hour-long episode, I am truly rooting these individuals on. Through every success, I’m so proud of them. Through every upset, I want to take them in my arms and tell them that everything is going to be okay. Also, I know that I’m not close to where the people on the show are out, but I could be. Like them, when I’m feeling like absolute crap, I turn to food for comfort. Since watching the show, I have been eating slightly healthier, (I can’t do much since I’m a college student with no money). As that is probably the point of the show, I would say it was pretty successful. Honestly, I just hope that the doctor continues the good work he does.
As you all probably know, I identify as a geek, ten-fold what a nerd is. Outside of fangirling about my favorite fandoms, I love to learn new things. That’s were Netflix’s documentary series Explained comes it to play. This documenary series covers a variety of topics such as designer genes, music, astrology and the world water shortage in short 20 minute episodes. What I love most about this series is that they cover both sides of many of the issues that they cover. The experts will say one thing, but at the same time they acknowledge where others are coming from at the same time. It’s actually pretty refreshing when individuals are able to see both sides of the issue they are discussing. The show is rated mature, but that is only because two of the episodes are on some pretty racey topics such as the female organism and monogamy. They’re completely education and take everything serious, but if you’re not mature enough to watch the episodes, I would suggest not watching them in public. I would suggest that anyone with a Netflix account watch this series, mainly because I want a second season. I would love to see what new topics they would get to cover if they had the opportunity.
