Shows that everybody has seen except me | Confessions from a Netflix Watcher


I must confess. There are so many good and popular shows on Netflix that I have no desire to watch. It seems that these tend to be the most popular shows, too.

But, who are these people? They like being scared? I really just don’t like being scared. Maybe, I’m a scare-d-cat? I’ve never been one to enjoy scary movies or shows in series form.

There are people out there that love them, though. So, I have to wonder how many people have watched them and I’m the lone one out?

Stranger Things

Now is the time to stream and binge watch Stranger Things, the first season if you haven’t watched it yet. It is a love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.

And get ready for Stranger Things 2 which starts October 27th! It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

The Walking Dead

In the wake of a zombie apocalypse, survivors hold on to the hope of humanity by banding together to wage a fight for their own survival.


1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page story telling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.

American Horror Story

This twisted drama plays upon the power of supernatural fears and everyday horrors, exploring humankind’s unsettling capacity for evil.


By day, mild-manners Dexter is a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami police. But at night, he is a serial killer who only target other murders.

The OA

Seven years after vanishing from her home, a young woman returns with mysterious new abilities and recruits five strangers for a secret mission.

Bates Motel

When his father dies, Norman Bates and his mother open a hotel. But, Norman’s precarious mental state drives them down a dark and violet path.

Van Helsing

After three years in a coma, Vanessa awakens to a world ravaged by vampires. Now, she and a motley band of fellow survivors fight to stay alive.

There’s a theme here for sure; vampires, ghosts, and zombies. I don’t do the zombies.

Thankfully, there are a lot of good shows that I can watch on Netflix, and it’s okay to have differing opinions.

Are there shows that everybody else has watched that are a big no for you?

    NO scary for me either. I like to sleep at night. The scariest I have watched are “The Shining” (had my eyes covered the first time), :Halloween” and “I know what you did last summer”. That’s about it. No Chucky movies, no Texas Chain saw, not to mention all those movies with creepy girls coming out of old wells. I like happy and funny all the way. A little drama once and while is good too.

  2. I can see why you haven’t seen most of these. I think The OA would be fine for you though. It’s a mindbinder not a scary one.
