Series You Need to be Binge-Watching on Netflix.

Summer is upon us, and it is the most wonderful time for every reason except one: Television.

Your shows are ending, your nights are free, and you will spend the next four months pondering the finales and googling when they come back on.

In the meantime, Netflix is about to be your new best friend. Not sure where to start? I've got you covered.
netflix shows to binge watch

Friday Night Lights. Probably my favorite show ever. Don't let the football theme scare you away--this is the greatest show to ever air (says this non-football fan). Though Connie Britton has BLOWN up lately, she will forever be Tammi Taylor to me. Please watch this immediately. TEXAS FOREVER.

Damages. This. Show. Is. Insane. So dark and twisty and villainous and just gooood. If you like law-themed shows and mysteries, this one is for you.

Hart of Dixie. A little lot less dark and twisty, this adorable show is about a big city doctor who relocates the the world's tiniest town...it is both heartwarming and hilarious, and you won't be able to get enough.

Parenthood. Quite possibly the greatest show to ever air. I am still in major depression that it is over. If you've never watched it, I'm so jealous that you're about to get to experience all of this for the first time. The Braverman family is all of us, and you will love sobbing along with keeping up with their story.

The Blacklist. This new one is so good that Netflix paid 2 MILLION DOLLARS PER EPISODE to be able to stream this. You're gonna want to trust them on this one. Raymond Reddington has been on the FBI's most wanted list forever, until he turns himself in one day--and that is only the beginning of the story.

The Office. BEST SHOW EVER. This comedy was sneakily emotional. You will fall in love while getting a ton of one-liners that you will work into conversations for the rest of your life. You are welcome.

Parks and Recreation. Along the same lines as the office, this one is hilarious and adorable. Plus, Amy Pohler and Chris Pratt. Do I need to say anything else? No, no I do not.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Because Erin from The Office got locked in a bunker and emerged 10 years later just as hilarious.

Pretty Little Liars. A mysterious "A" starts tormenting four best friends after the disappearance of their other best friend. Yes, this show was meant for high schoolers. SO WHAT?! It's twisty and mysterious and will keep you awake at night wondering who the heck A is. And by season four you will be pretty sure YOU are A .

Scandal. Because if you haven't lost yourself in the world of Olivia Pope yet, now is a great time to get started.

LOST. If you want a show that's really going to suck you in all summer, this is it. A plane crashes on a mysterious island, and no one comes to rescue them. Then things start to get weird. WONDERFULLY WEIRD.]

What shows did I miss?

  1. I have so many shows I want to eventually start from the beginning and watch! I watched the first season of Hart of Dixie whenever it came out and would love to watch it over again- it was so cute!

  2. Friday Night Lights is next on my list. Never watched but everyone loves it! Ah, Parenthood. Did any show make you cry more?! I may re-watch the whole series. And yes to The Office, Parks & Rec, & Kimmy Schmidt: three of my favorites!

  3. I have to admit that I really don't love TV. BUT as I shared today in my post someone recently challenged me to start watching NCIS: Los Angeles and I have to say... a little bit in love... I will have to check some of these out that you mentioned!! :) OH I do love "The Amazing Race" and imagine my joy at finding out that you can watch almost 20 different seasons on Hulu (for free). hahaha! That has definitely gotten me through some treatment days!

    Thanks for sharing these!!
    :) Happy Wednesday!

  4. Perfect timing. I went on a mad search last night to try to find something new to watch. I don't watch a lot of tv but already did the Hart of Dixie and Pretty Little Liars. Next up, Scandal!

  8. Thank you for posting this! I keep seeing commercials for Friday Night Lights and even though I missed it the first time around I was thinking about starting it now!

  9. Haha I've seen nearly ALL of those. Maybe I'm addicted?

  10. I'm literally bookmarking this to my computer... This post is the best! I think I'm going to watch Friday Night Lights next.
    You should watch Gilmore Girls! Maybe I'm just "behind the times," but I'm addicted to it right now.

  11. Agh! I love this post! We no longer have cable, so Netflix and Hulu are my lifeline! My husband makes fun of me for binge watching shows now. lol. I have watched a lot of the shows on your list--I think I need to check out the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (I didn't realize it was Erin). I'm currently binge watching Scrubs and Life Unexpected. Orange is the New Black, Don't Trust the B*tch in Apartment 23 (it's semi entertaining), and Once Upon a Time need to be added to the list!

  13. Breaking Bad was our first officially binge, but I would also recommend Revenge & 24. I haven't caught up on Hart of Dixie or Parenthood yet, but I'm excited :)

  14. I'm soooo sad Hart of Dixie is over, it was my stress-free show. So cheesy, yet so cute! And YES to The Office. I will "That's what she said" people forever :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. PLL And Scandal are the only shows that I watch on your list right now...so I will have to check out some of these others!!!

  21. Army Wives is a good binge-show, it's my Friends, as in, I grew up watching this in high school and college and it's my go-to show. & I absolutely love FNL, I've never finished it before.

  22. I love a lot of these shows. The Blacklist is the best! I hope they can get season 2.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love love love Parks & Rec! I definitely need to check out Kimmy Schmidt!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Daredevil is a must in our house, but I have several of the above on my list for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  26. such an awesome post! Friday night lights is my fav show of all time :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I ugly cried so bad when Parks and Rec ended. I keep meaning to start Kimmy Schmidt. I LOVED Lost so much that I actually had a guy I dated get mad because I watched it more than hanging out with him. That's why he's an ex. Orange is the New Black is awesome too! The West Wing is a really well written political show with humor mixed in. Plus Rob Lowe is in it! We have Hulu and also just got HBO Now (which apparently doesn't work on non Apple devices) s I have a lot of shows in my queue.

  28. Pinning this and making a list of shows to watch ASAP! I recommend binge watching Desperate Housewives! I loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've been watching Pretty Little Liars!
    I had heard good things about it before, but hadn't caught it from the beginning so didn't want to start midshow. So was excited when I found it on netflix. I think I am almost done with season one, finally!

  30. My husband and I just picked up Parenthood recently. We're like halfway through Season 5! For the longest time I just didn't think it was a show I would like, but now I just want to be a Braverman.

    ReplyDelete
  31. WoopWoop! I am still sad that I finished Friday Night Lights! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I'll have to check out the others on this list of awesomeness!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree with Parenthood and The Office!

    ReplyDelete
  33. There are so many great shows on here and so many I've been dying to check out. FNL and Parenthoods are my absolute favorites! Jason Katims is a genius.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hart of Dixie! I was SO. SAD. when it got canceled. I started Parenthood last year and never finished and I don't remember where I left off..... ugh. I'm on season five of Parks and Rec and I'm OBSESSED. And I keep hearing great things about Scandal, so I guess that should be my next one?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Coach Taylor and Tim Riggins. Swoon forever. I got hooked into that show after visiting Austin where it was filmed. I may have set a record with how fast it took me to binge watch it. Ooh The Blacklist! YES. I'm always on the edge of my seat and wondering what the true situation is. I'm gonna hate this season's finale.

    ReplyDelete
  36. ohhhh man i totally got my husband sucked into 'pretty little liars' on thanksgiving day a few years ago! now it's been waaaay too drawn out so we've stopped but we also super loved lost! great suggestions!

    ReplyDelete
  37. i'm starting to watch parenthood now. we finished the first season of unbreakable, and i'm not sure how i feel about it yet. we started bc one of our good friends plays the asian guy, but they made him have such a weird accent. i also love 30 rock, but i feel like without tina.. there's less charm. we're gonna see how the second season goes.. maybe it will take us a few.

  38. Damages sounds like my kind of show! Have you watched The Killing or The Fall? Both are moody, atmospheric mysteries with imperfect characters that are also kinda creepy. (Especially The Fall.)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love Blacklist, Lost, Parks and Rec, and THE OFFICE. There are a few of these I still need to watch. Right now we are watching Man Men because Zack's never seen it and I will always re-watch Don Draper.
