10 TV Shows to Binge Watch

binge watch

If you know me at all, you’ll probably know I’m very guilty of binge watching TV shows. Don’t hear from me for a few days? I’m probably hiding under a blanket with a mountain of food and watching something on Netflix. I highly doubt I’m the only one that does this, so I’ve come up with a list of recommendations for your next antisocial binge watch.


If you’re not sure what to watch next, you can’t go wrong with any of these. Just make sure you grab some snacks first! You probably won’t be moving for a while…

1) Friends – 10 seasons
Where to watch? Netflix
I doubt I even have to mention this. Friends has been a classic binge watch of mine for years and with it’s recent addition to UK Netflix, I think we’ve all jumped back on the Friends train!

2) Elementary – 5 seasons
Where to watch? Good question, definitely no illegal streaming involved here
Elementary is the perfect modern depiction of Sherlock. The amusing, charming and always witty Holmes along with his sidekick Watson make for a very entertaining watch. I’m definitely guilty of spending way too much time doing absolutely nothing but watching this!

3) The Office (US) – 9 seasons
Where to watch? Amazon Prime
I don’t know what I can say other than The Office is probably the best thing I’ve ever watched. You can’t help but fall in love with every single character. I’m trying to keep this list to 10 so I’m sneaking in Parks and Rec here too. Made by the same producers as The Office, this is another show you don’t want to miss. I think we all need a Leslie Knope in our lives.

4) Suits – 7 Seasons
Where to watch? Netflix
If I said this show wasn’t the reason I decided to do a law degree, I’d be lying… So thanks to Harvey, Donna, Lewis and Mike but this law degree definitely isn’t as fun as your fancy law firm in New York.

5) The Walking Dead – 8 seasons
Where to watch? Amazon Prime
If you need some ideas of what to do and what not to do in the event of an apocalypse, this is the show for you. In all honesty I’m not loving the newest season, but you’ve got lots to catch up on before then!

6) Greys Anatomy – 14 seasons
Where to watch? If you’ve got Virgin, they’ve got you sorted!
This is what I’m currently binge watching. I’ve been patiently (impatiently) waiting for new episodes, but the lovely Claire told me she was watching from the very start and I decided to follow suit. I’ve watched the whole series several times and it never gets any less emotionally traumatic. If you’ve never seen Greys before, grab a big box of tissues and prepare for the biggest emotional rollercoaster of your life.

7) How I Met Your Mother – 9 seasons
Where to watch? Netflix
Much like Friends, HIMYM is definitely another classic to binge watch. I definitely laughed and cried all the way through. Before long you’ll feel like you know Ted Mosby just as well as his friends do.

8) Man in the High Castle – 2 seasons
Where to watch? Amazon Prime 
Set in 1962, this show explores what America would be like had Japan and Germany won in World War II. It’s such an interesting concept for a TV show and it’s definitely worth a watch. It’s hard not to get invested in the storyline, hence why it’s definitely something you binge watch.

9) Orange is the New Black – 5 seasons
Where to watch? Netflix
Welcome to Litchfield Penitentiary, the home of badass women. OITNB is funny, heartwarming and a little bit dark all rolled into one. I think it goes without saying, but I definitely wouldn’t last a day in Litchfield! 

10) Gilmore Girls – 7 seasons
Where to watch? Netflix
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched Gilmore Girls, but it never gets old for me. Lorelai and Rory are the most entertaining mother daughter duo. I would quite happily move to Stars Hollow tomorrow and join in on their antics if I could!

What’s your favourite thing to binge watch? Let me know.

P.S. No idea how I managed to completely forget about House until now, but I feel like I need to mention it. If you’ve not seen House, close this page immediately and change that. If you love Greys Anatomy, you’ll love House too. You definitely can’t go wrong with a little bit of Hugh Laurie in your life!

Need an idea for a nice drink to go along with your snacks? I created some yummy mocktails (that would also taste great with gin or vodka…) find the recipes here.
