Hands up, who loves nothing more than a good Netflix binge? Yup, I’m with you. After a stressful day of work I love settling down on the sofa to stream episode after episode and escape into an entertaining bit of TV. I’m talking shows you can marathon episode after episode of and never get bored, you know what I mean. So, what are my favourite TV shows to binge watch?
RuPaul’s Drag Race
Of course RuPaul’s Drag Race was going to make this list! I’ve watched most of the series before but there’s nothing like binge watching half a series in one whack on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
In case you haven’t seen this one before, it’s basically America’s Next Top Model but with drag queens. Yup, it’s as amazing as it sounds and, even better, all six seasons are on Netflix.
If you’re a regular watcher, who are your favourites? I’m partial to a spot of Raja, Ben de la Creme, Alaska and Milk!
Ah, South Park, the show I started watching at eleven years old and never stopped watching! It was always on at 9pm on Channel 4 on Friday nights (if I remember correctly!) and I loved it from the first episode I ever watched (season two’s Spooky Fish Halloween special, come to think of it).
There’s nothing I can binge watch like South Park, and every single episode provides belly laughs, however many times I’ve watched it. I love American Dad and Family Guy too, but nothing beats South Park!
American Horror Story
Without doubt, the best show on TV at the moment, and one of my all-time favourites. I can’t get enough of AHS and can never decide which series is my favourite. Me and my boyfriend are rewatching Murder House (season one) at the moment – sooo good.
Basically, any horror fans or lovers of all things creepy need to watch this show in their lives! Each season tells a different story but features the same cast playing different roles. The list of guest stars is unparalleled and the star of the show is Jessica Lange, who is absolutely captivating in every role she plays.
There’s nothing like getting completely sucked into a series and racing through it in a matter of hours…while getting totally creeped out at the same time, of course!
A new discovery that I can thank my boyfriend for, Bob’s Burgers is an animated show that we always end up binge watching on a Friday while we’re having our weekly fajita night – funny little traditions we all have, eh?
Detailing the struggles of the Belcher family, who run a burger restaurant, Bob’s Burgers is absolutely hilarious and my new favourite show. It’s one of those brilliant animated shows that’s smart with its humour; the jokes are sharp, the characters are loveable, and it’s a great feel good show.
Pretty Little Liars
A blogger favourite, Pretty Little Liars is the ultimate binge watch TV, if you’re a fan of teen dramas. With so many twists and turns it’s almost impossible to keep up, this is the perfect show to lounge around in front of, whether you’re ill, hungover, or just chilling out.
As the plot is so full of twists and gets ridiculously complicated at points (I’ve completely lost track of whether certain characters are evil or not, so I’m just going with it), this is definitely a show that’s better to binge watch.
Oh, and you’ll find yourself swooning after the wardrobes of the girls, and the faces of the guys!
Those are five of my favourite TV shows to marathon my way through – but I want to know what your favourites are! Let me know, what else should I be watching?
