Best Streaming Services
Coronavirus plaguing the world has given most of us a lot of time to binge watch favorite shows, discover new ones, check out new movies, and relive classics. I've definitely spent my fair share of time stuffing my face and bouncing around between streaming services finding the right thing to watch. After 5 months of too much free time, I've concluded which streaming services are best and why.
When it comes to nostalgic viewing, Disney+ takes the cake. As an older millenial, I grew up in the sweet spot of '90's animated Disney classics before Pixar came to town. The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Pocahontas are readily available to transport me back to elementary school days where recess consisted of "A Whole New World" singalongs. It's also home to my favorite holiday movie of all time, The Santa Clause. To this day when I'm feeling low (no matter what the season), I turn it on and it puts me in a lovely mood.
For bingeable treats of all kinds, Netflix still reigns supreme in my eyes. Need a feel-good documentary series? Check out Love on the Spectrum or Indian Matchmaking. Want a closer look at world changing political movements? Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution is waiting for you. Catching up on network shows? Netflix has them. Grey's Anatomy, Schitt's Creek, and How To Get Away With Murder are ready for a binge.
The dearest to my heart, however, is HBO GO. The service boasts a selection of movies and shows I don't find very impressive, but Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, and Insecure skyrockets its worth and I'll keep it forever.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go watch Season 5, episode 8 of Game of Thrones for the 25th time. Happy bingeing, ya'll!
