Binge Worthy Shows on Netflix.

Most people use their weekends to get out the house to hang with friends. That can include going to the club, a bar or out to eat but me I prefer spending a nice quiet (okay scratch the quiet part because my son and niece are far from the quiet type) evening inside watching movies or bingeing shows on Xfinity Demand or Netflix, with a drink next to me and plenty to snack on.

Today I thought I’d give you some of my favorite shows, in which I believe are binge worthy. Check them out below:

The Vampire Diaries

If you are into teen drama mixed with romance and badass vampires like Damon Salvatore, this is the show for you. You have 8 seasons to fill up your weekends and a ton of plot twist that will keep you intrigued. The show was released in 2009 and finally came to an end in 2017.

The Originals 

Don’t watch this show until you’ve watched The Vampire Diaries. When I first came across Klaus Mikaelson in The Vampire Diaries I thought, I need more of him. My prayers were answered in 2013 when the CW finally gave the original vampires their own show. Filled with lots of violence and he occasional love story, you’ll be wishing this show never came to an end.

Grace and Frankie

You’ve might have scrolled passed these two old ladies and kept going but please STOP and go back. If you were a fan of the Golden Girls, this will become one of your favorite comedy shows and you’ll be begging for the next season. Just imagine two women, who barely like each other becoming the best of friends due to their husband’s infidelity.

Jane The Virgin

A Pregnant Virgin, It’s the perfect start for a girl who lives her life-like a telenovela. A comedy filled with murder, love and secrets is definitely worth watching. Plus, I love that she’s a writer like me.

Stranger Things

I’ll admit this was one sci-fi I wasn’t particularly interested in when I first started it. Halfway through the first season I was completely lost. One day I was sitting home with nothing to do and I decided to give it another chance. Best decision I made, plus my son got to enjoy it with me as well. There was a mix of comedy, suspense and horror that I enjoyed.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 

Please please add this to your watch list. A girl imprisoned as a teen is freed from a cult 15 years later and ends up in New York. She has no clue what the real world is like and as she becomes accustomed to the ways of the world she takes us through this hilarious scenarios with her hilarious/weird roommates. They are a perfect match in comedy heaven. Titus is one of my favorite characters and I’ll be sad to see this show come to an end. Season 5 will be starting January 25th.

Here are a few other shows I’ve enjoyed:

  1. Queen of the South
  2. On My Block
  3. Good Girls
  4. You
  5. The Sinner
  6. Friends From College

  1. I really enjoyed You. I’m watching Gossip Girl now and I don’t have an opinion quite yet. I also loved The Blacklist and Person of Interest. I really liked Revenge as well but that isn’t on Netflix anymore.

    • Currently I’m binging Game of Thrones, which isn’t on Netflix. I’ve never got into Gossip Girl but someone did tell me it’s worth watching. Sometimes it’s so much on Netflix I’m never sure what to watch. Thought this list might help some people.

      • This is a great list. I too feel overwhelmed at times. I chose Gossip Girl because I was told it was good and I had just finished a show. I have heard Game of Thrones is good. I have never seen it though.

      • I’ve completed this series in almost a week. I’m currently on the last season. I’ve been hearing about it for years and I finally gave it a chance. Lots of violence but it’s good.

  2. I loved Stranger Things. The Magicians is a fantastic show and the first 3 seasons are on Netflix. I just recently binged You and Sex Education. Both great. You is creeptastic and Sex Education made me laugh hysterically. Not on Netflix but Game of Thrones is a masterpiece and I never thought I’d like it.
