We all know how distracting and dangerous binge watching TV shows can be right? You think to yourself, just one episode tonight… Well 4 seasons later and lots of screaming at your screen, you’re no closer to finding out if Michael Schofield will ever break out of prison successfully or who will sit on the Iron Throne.
Here’s some TV shows that are a must for binge watching:
1. RuPauls Drag Race
This show is pure genius. I’m pretty new to the drag race hype and I can only wonder why I didn’t get into it sooner! It’s SO good. I’ve watched all the seasons within 1-2 months. It’s a very enlightening watch too. I’m sad that it’s over and I can’t wait for the next season. Every year it just gets bigger and better! My favourite Queens have to be Latrice Royale, Kim Chi, Bob the Drag Queen, Violet Chachki and Bianca Del Rio!
2. Pretty Little Liars
This is a show we love to hate. For seven years we have wondered who is torturing these girls, who the hell is A.D? We thought it was all over after Dolls House but nope, they surprised us all there. It’s your typical cheesy teen thriller but it’s SO addictive.
3. Stranger Things
Without a doubt, one of the best, if not THE best Netflix originals ever. Series two is just about to kick off and I am so bloody excited. The first season literally had me on the edge of my seat. The acting is fantastic and I miss Barb, she was THE best. I’m really interested to see how Season Two plays out.
4. Game of Thrones
DUN-DUN-DU-DU-DU-DU-DUN-DUN-DUN…. I can’t tell you how many times Kayne and I have re-watched this show. It’s just so bloody good and every time we watch it, we see or discover something we didn’t realise before. I’m gutted there’s only one season left. This is probably one of my favourite TV series of all time!
The one where even though the last episode aired 13 years ago, it is still a timeless classic.
6. Absolutely Fabulous
I remember watching it when I was younger, but I’ve recently re-watched it on Netflix and oh my, it’s a laugh a minute! A must watch!
7. Parks and Recreation
I didn’t understand the hype with this before I watched it but now I totally get the hype! It’s hilarious and probably my top 5 TV shows for watching. I could watch this over and over again without getting bored. It’s on Amazon Prime too so if you’re a Prime member you can watch to your hearts content! Leslie Knope is my spirit animal.
8. The Office (US)
I’ve watched a little bit of the UK version and I must admit, I do not like. The US version, however, is fantastic. The first season is a bit meh but aren’t most of them? People say that you either prefer the UK or US and I definitely prefer the US. I’m currently re-watching this with Kayne (his first time watching it) and I forgot how funny it was.
9. Orange Is The New Black
The animals, the animals… *hums the intro song* I love this series and I will be sad when it’s over. The last season ended on such a huge cliffhanger, I’m not sure how it’s going to play out next season. I’m still not over Poussey’s death. It touches on some really important issues too. 10/10 would recommend.
It’s pretty cheesy, not gonna lie. It’s such an addictive show though. Cheryl and Veronica sorta annoy me but I like them at the same time? It’s a love hate relationship with them. If you haven’t seen this show yet, all I’m gonna say is be warned for THAT dance scene… Everyone who’s seen it will know what I’m getting at. Season two has just kicked off on Netflix and I really don’t know how it’s going to play out!
There’s 10 shows that are must watches! I can imagine most people have seen these but if you haven’t they’re definitely worth checking out. Other shows I’m also loving at the moment: Doctor Foster (the season finale has just aired), Gossip Girl, The Keepers and Prison Break! What’s some of your must have TV series that are totally binge worthy?
