Weekly Love: Week 128
I’m here again to tell you about two of my new favourite binge watches: The Bold Type (for Amazon Prime users) and Greenleaf (for Netflix subscribers). While I have shows I watch with my family, I save some binges just for me which I put on the big screen while I’m editing blog photos; a bit like my Mum catches up on her shows while she does her ironing. The Bold Type is trashy but excellent, a sort of Millennial Devil Wears Prada following the work and relationships 3 twenty somethings who started out as assistants at a magazine that is obviously supposed to be Cosmopolitan. Greenleaf is a little different: it follows the internal politics of a gospel super church in Memphis run by one family (the Greenleafs), and while religion runs through the whole show (and is not really my thing) there is also the same amount of money, power plays and sex scandals you’d expect from a made for Netflix binge watcher (two seasons are online now!)
