First season of Babylon Berlin. Detective investigates a vast criminal conspiracy in 1929 Berlin, with the political climate that led to the Nazis getting into power providing the backdrop. Excellent stuff. Lots of thought and planning - and a large budget - clearly went into this.

I've had a bad run of luck with starting new TV shows. Tried 'You', which I knew would be a trash fire, but hoped would be the kind of trash fire that would at least keep me watching (like, Gossip Girl, for example). Got 4 episodes in, and just couldn't any more. Too much of a trash fire.

Then I tried 'Friends from College', above mentioned, which I can completely see why people like, but I just couldn't get into at all. Just felt too smug and above all else, I just didn't want to keep watching (you know, the kind of show you're like, this is good but I must be broken because I'm very bored and disengaged?)

I swear, the only things I've watched in the past few months that I have the attention span to stick with are cartoons (I watch a lot, but rewatching 'Mysterious Cities of Gold' was a highlight, as well as 'Aggretsuko') and working through all the past series of the bake off on Netflix.

Long story short, my boyfriend, with whom I co-habit, is going on tour soon, meaning he'll be gone for like a week. It'll just be me and the cats at home. I want to take this opportunity to watch as much TV as possible, because lately I've been spending all my free time being productive, reading, cooking, exercising, and working on art. Sloth time it is, you know? The rub is, I get very nervous in the apartment alone, because there's a man that lives behind us that gets hammered a lot and sometimes walks through the courtyard my bedroom window looks up onto yelling in a gollem voice, "ANGELA. ANGELA. ANGELA".

So I want to spend this sloth time wrapped up in a blanket, with the company of a TV show I am excited to binge watch.

TL;DR - Home alone for a week, watch too many cartoons and seem to hate everything. Gimme a comforting show I can birnge for an entire week. Thank you!

Channel Zero. TV show based on popular Creepy Pasta stories. From what I can gather Creepy Pasta is a sort of meme site where people upload anonymous short horror stories based on urban legend and internet pop culture e.g Slenderman; disturbing, unbroadcasted Simpsons episodes etc... Creepypasta

First season tells a good scary story well - missing kids, creepy forests and haunted televisions shows. It's atmospheric, well acted and fairly unsettling. It's dragged out a bit though and I think they could have wrapped up the story in an hour long episode rather than drag it out over 6 45 min ones. The remaining seasons have been well received by horror fans so i will stick with it.
