Binge-worthy TV Shows

Soho, NY

Who doesn’t love to watch Netflix and chill? ;) This post is a loooong time coming, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few shows that are binge-worthy on here, but this is a great start if you’re looking for something new to watch! I put this post under my Wellness/Self Care section because it’s just as important to rest and recharge as it is to go-go-go!

Best TV Shows to Binge Watch

Sex and the City
I can watch this over and over again and never tire of it

Emily in Paris
This new show is kind of like the modern day version of Sex and the City (Darren Star – creator of SATC is behind it!) but takes place in Paris. It’s definitely cheesier and more cliche, but honestly, we all need some fluff and lightness in our lives right now. It’s easy to watch and the scenes around Paris are beautiful

Queen’s Gambit
This incredible series is about an orphan turned world renowned chess player. It’s compelling and one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time.

This steamy series is addicting and you’ll finish it in 2 days! It starts a bit slow, but then rapidly picks up. The costumes are incredible and it’s basically like a Marie Antoinette 50 Shades of Grey…

Cobra Kai
This is the modern day Karate Kid in a series with all of the original actors today. It’s really well done and has a ton of classic flashbacks.

The OC
I recently starting watching this show again and it’s bringing back so many high school memories. It’s a quintessential high school drama filmed in Newport Beach. An oldie but definitely a goodie

SO witty, takes place in LA, centers around quirky dating scenarios that you can totally relate to if you’re a millennial

Schitt’s Creek
You will pee your pants watching this – the best

Hart of Dixie
Superrrr cheesy, but feel good, and light. A great show to have in the background. It follows Rachel Bilson as a doctor in a small town

Stranger Things
I only watched the first season and loved it, haven’t gotten into the other seasons TBH, but first season was REALLY good

Sex Education
The second season JUST came out, this is a hilarious British TV show based on awkward sexual high school encounters

There are 9 seasons of this so you’ll be occupied for a while! Really good show that’s easy to watch – I wish this series hadn’t ended!

Royal Pains
Happy, cheesy, and easy to watch, there are 8 seasons so it’s a great mindless show that takes place in the beautiful Hamptons

Law and Order SVU
The old Law and Order SVU episodes are so good, so twisted, and so easy to binge

Game of Thrones
INTENSE action packed series, that I had a hard time getting through because I get scared easily and have nightmares LOL, but incredible acting and production

Virgin River
This steamy series is about a doctor who leaves the big city to join a small town doctor’s office. There’s romance, mystery, crime!

Selling Sunset
This reality show follows an LA real estate firm. It’s flashy, obnoxious, and over the top, but in the best way.

The Hills, The Hills: New Beginnings
I’ve gotten so desperate that I am starting to rewatch The Hills LOL. Juicy reality TV that takes place in LA… drama, friendship, love, ridiculousness…

Addicting, twisted, creepy and yet the main character who is a murderer is somehow likable. Takes place today in NYC and LA – season 3 is coming soon!

A murder mystery series that has lighthearted moments that balance it out – intense but so well written

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
An award winning show for a reason. The acting is amazing, the 1950s costumes are gorgeous, and it will make you laugh

The Crown
A captivating series about the Royal family. The first seasons were way better than the current one – in my opinion!

Money Heist
You’ll be on the edge of your seat (in a good way) watching this series. So many twists and turns – adventure packed

This Paris thriller on Netflix is incredible! A son tries to redeem his father’s legacy after he was wrongly convicted by a wealthy French businessman. It’s full of mystery and secrets.

Gossip Girl
A classic series that I can watch again and again, XOXO

OMG Tom Ellis the main character is so gorgeous – if anything watch it just to see him shirtless LOL!!! He plays a devil reincarnated on earth living in LA. SO good and it’s coming back for another season!

Thomas recently got me into this show – and I have to admit, I didn’t think I’d like it and I really do. It’s super intense, takes place on a beautiful ranch in Montana, and has a ton of twists and turns. Great to watch with your significant other

Mad Men
This series captured the 1950s in NYC’s ad world perfectly. The sets, the costumes and acting were all on point. Such a unique, special show

TBH I only watched a few shows on and off, but the ones I did watch were so good. Kerry Washington is incredible and I’ve been meaning to sit down and watch the series from start to finish!

Same thing with this series, I only watched the first few seasons, but they were really good. VERY intense, and drama/action pack filled but great if you love crime, action, mystery

Can they please come out with another season?! Thrilling series following a high profile government bodyguard saving London from terrorist attacks

Dead to Me
This was AMAZING! I don’t know anyone who didn’t like this show – SO good

The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Very dark and extremely disturbing, but fascinating nonetheless. The actor won an award for his performance – which was truly well deserved

Russian Doll
Quirky and weird, but really well done. This is a short, quick series to watch one weekend

This British show is a feel good series that follows the lives of 3 friends who live in a flat and 2 of which are secretly in love

Tales of the City
Takes place in SF, about a group of friends who reside in an LGBTQ community home. Heartwarming and captivating

A small town accountant gets caught up with drug lords who are controlling him and his family. A thrilling and ironic story

A murder mystery show centered around a group of high schoolers – so many good twists and turns

Morning Show
I’ve never watched this but had to include because everyone’s been raving about it! I need to watch it ASAP!

Breaking Bad
I watched this entire series front to back and was SO sad when it ended! A small town professor turns into a drug dealer and has a complete mental breakdown – this show will keep you on your toes!

I feel like this show ended way too soon! Can they please bring back one more season?! Playful and mysterious with comedy mixed in, this series follows a con woman and all of the flings she picks up along the way

A billionaire who lives a fast, lavish lifestyle is fighting to stay in control of his life, family and company

The Girlfriend Experience
Riley Keough was only in 1 season of this and I wish they had continued it! Her acting was perfect and she nailed the law student turned high end escort part

Animal Kingdom
Thomas loved this show. I had a bit of a hard time watching it all because of the violence (yep I am a scaredy cat!!!) but it was REALLY well done. It takes place in California and follows a family who is involved in some serious shady business

A billionaire news mogul and his seriously dysfunctional family fight each other for power, back stab, and jet set around the world. So exciting, well written and award-winning for a reason

Home For Christmas
This popped up on our Netflix when we were in Paris. It’s a cute Norwegian show that follows a girl who is in her 30s and pressured to find a boyfriend to bring home to meet her family for Christmas. Such a sweet, feel-good series

Below Deck
I’m a sucker for a BRAVO reality TV show! Below Deck is one that both men and women will be able to appreciate!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Another ridiculous reality TV show that is so bad it’s good ;) Beverly Hills is my favorite out of all of the series

Other noteworthy titles (updated as of April 2021)

Outer Banks

What are some of your favorite TV shows to binge watch?! Any that I absolutely need to watch? A few that I didn’t include but am “reviewing” hehe and seeing if I actually like are…Fleabag, Modern Love (not loving as much as other people do), and Black Mirror (pretty dark the first few episodes are good.)

Happy binge-watching!!!

    Noooooooo Kat Rhobh is trash and boring – they’re too into themselves and don’t reveal anything interesting, Rhony and Rhoa is where its at. Seriously watch Rhony from the beginning- its the best and so New York. You won’t regret it

    The show “I’m sorry” on Netflix is hilarious. I’ve cried laughing so many times watching the first two seasons, which are super easy to speed through. Third is still to come.
