Favorite Binge Shows

Good morning friends! I was so excited to see that the theme for this month's Let's Look was binge watching. I am always looking for a good new show. 

Devin and I rarely agree on the same TV shows, so I am really looking forward to reading every single one of the link ups for ideas. When I first started blogging last year, one of my very first ever posts was about binge watching. I wrote about my 5 favorite shows to binge watch and also polled several of my girlfriends about their top binge shows too. You can read that here.

While I still stand by all of those shows that I loved binge watching (and the friends I polled do too), I have a few new ones to add. 
Devin and a group of my best girlfriends finally convinced me to start Game of Thrones, and I am so happy I did! I definitely don't love every episode, and I had to take a break from it for awhile because it was too depressing/violent/upsetting. But overall, it is a really good show and I love the storyline. We are on season 7 now, and I'm nervous about how I will feel once we wrap up the entire series. I've heard there were a lot of negative feelings about how season 8 ended. I guess I'll find out soon enough!
I love going back and binge watching old episodes of The Office, especially after watching something dark like GoT. This show makes me laugh out loud and never gets old to me. Do some of the episodes make me cringe? Absolutely. But overall its a sweet, happy, positive thing to watch that won'e give me nightmares... so I'll take it!
Same with Friends! I recently just binge watched all the episodes where Rachel was pregnant again and I just cannot get enough of this group and their dynamic. What a great show :)

I can't wait to read what the rest of you say our favorite binge shows!  


  1. My husband and I rarely agree on shows either. We have found a few here and there but often spend weeks and months watching our own thing.

  2. I haven't watched GoT, I just don't know if I can get into it. I love The Office!!! One of my top favorites if not my favorite! You're getting soo close to your due date! So excited for you!

  3. My husband and I tend to have different tastes in TV too. He did NOT like GOT and I loved it for example. He watched season 7 with me but not 8 (or any before 7). We've recently finished Bodyguard (Netflix) and Black Monday (SHOWTIME- hilarious but dark). We are currently working our way through Handmaid's Tale on HULU which is great but can be so emotional. Afterwards we usually watch a Parks and Rec episode to lighten the mood. But our current favorite is Kim's Convenience on Netflix. It. Is. Hilarious. Season 3 of GLOW just dropped on Netflix, so probably after we finish Kim's Convenience in a couple of weeks we'll move on to that.
