I'm a binge-watcher, and I am not ashamed to admit it. To me, writing seven hours a day in complete silence is my own personal hell. I like to keep something on while I'm working just so I can take breaks and kind of zone out to think about things. In terms of what show, the longer the series, the better for binge-watchers like me. However, it is also crucial that the show doesn't demand engagement like Pretty Little Liars where you constantly have to be able to read those darn text messages. What better genre for long, only somewhat engaging shows than reality TV? However, instead of turning on the Real Housewives of Wherever, I enjoy competitive cooking shows because, you guessed it, I like to cook.

On October 23rd, Netflix aired the third and final season of Hemlock Grove, one of its original shows created by Eli Roth. However, right from the get-go, the show had a bad habit of raising more questions than it left answered as well as dropping plot lines like sacks of rotten meat.

Unlike young adult fiction adaptations, zombie apocalypses, and action movies featuring gruff men with troubled pasts, period drama is vast genre, but rarely an oversaturated one. However, as every history teacher chides their flock come term paper time, the media adaptations never make up for the real written deal. As history is written by the victors, some of the written word is likely wrong, but period dramas are re-written once more to be made for the audience. That said, period dramas do get a few things right, even if it is just the gist of the story, and, if nothing else, they bring an era to life in living color to pique the interest of another generation.
