Feature & Follow Friday #8

Happy Friday, fellow book lovers! Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The goal of Feature & Follow is to meet new bloggers, make friends, and gain readers.

This Week's Question: 

What is your favorite TV series that you 
can watch over and over again on Netflix?

Well, I have a lot of "favorite" shows, but there are only a couple I've watched multiple times. Since I can't decide between them, I'm going to list all three in no particular order.

I started watching Supernatural in 2009 while deployed to Afghanistan after a local Afghan man recommended it to me at a market (yes, they were bootleg copies - that's legal there). I was totally sucked in even though I was only able to get my hands on seasons one and two. When I got home in 2010 I immediately located all available seasons and have since kept up to date. In 2012 I introduced my then-fiancĂ© to the show and we blew through all seven seasons in about two weeks. I'd watch it again right now if I didn't have anything else to occupy my time. 

When I joined the military I worked for a doctor from Hong Kong named Dr. Tsang. We talked a lot. Despite what you may have heard, some military personnel are just not that busy - I had a lot of free time on some days. He kept telling me how awesome X-Files was, but all I knew was that I wasn't allowed to watch it as a kid and I didn't think I'd like it. However, he insisted I take season one (because he had all of them) and watch it. I was hooked. Shortly thereafter I purchased box set including seasons one thru nine as well as the first movie. Unfortunately, the next movie wasn't as awesome, but I still own it (or owned it until someone broke into my house and took it). I've been trying to get my husband to watch this series for years.  

Spartacus, how I love thee... This show. I don't even know what to say. My husband and I started watching this because we had to find something new after we'd caught up with Supernatural. And ohmygod this show is epic. It's like Gladiator on steroids and for multiple seasons. This show is purely blood and sex for the sake of it, though the based-on-a-true-story is emotional and gripping. When Spartacus #1 died we were devastated and didn't know what to do. Not to mention what the show was going to do! But we even loved the space filler season. This is one of those shows that just devastated me when it ended. I love Spartacus and have purchased it to watch over and over again.
