Most Binge Worthy Shows on Netflix

Apparently watching a dozen odd shows at a time isn’t normal – who knew? Oh well, I’ve always been in love with TV shows, getting lost in another world, becoming invested in the characters and their stories – I mean I got invested in Saved by the Bell (I even cried with Zack and Kelly got married) – so it’s no surprise the TV is always on in our house and I honestly don’t know what we’d do without Netflix. Since I’ve had about four people in last two weeks ask me for show recommendations I decided it’s time to let everyone in on the secret on the most binge worthy shows on Netflix.

Our Current Go To Recommendation:  The Santa Clarita Diet

A new Netflix original so there’s only one season so we finished it in a weekend BUT it’s so good, we’re already counting down until season 2 is released. We tell everyone to watch it and so far all positive reviews – don’t be put off by the “zombies” it’s not your typically zombie show – it’s hilarious. Drew Barrymore is great! 

What We’re Currently Bingeing: How I Met Your Mother

Can you believe Rich has NEVER seen this show?! When we’re not catching up on The Voice or current TV, we turn on some good old HIMYM. No matter how many times I watch this show I just cringe for Ted in the beginning seasons, he just has no clue. 

My Go To Favourite Re-Watch: Gossip Girl

If you haven’t already seen Gossip Girl, give it a chance, it takes me back to high school when I used to watch religiously and was always the hot topic. I remember rushing to get my homework done so my mom would let me go to a friends house to watch together when it was a “big episode” – oh man, high school…

What I Wish Rich Would Watch With Me: Suits

I LOVE this show and I have no idea how Rich doesn’t enjoy it. I keep trying and hoping that one episode he oversees will change his mind but nope.

What We’re Watching Next: Daredevil

We started watching Daredevil when it first came out but for whatever reason we stopped and started something else on Sky, but it’s next up on our bingeing queue because we’re heard good things from friends and we could do with a Marvel show to balance out all the DC shows we watch (Arrow, The Flash, DC Legends of Tomorrow AND Supergirl – whew!) 


  • Bad Education
  • Sherlock
  • Californication
  • Luther
  • Dexter

ALL MY SHOWS THAT OUR NOW ON NETFLIX – aka not Rich approved 

  • Gilmore Girls
  • How to Get Away with Murder
  • White Collar
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Hannibal

Have you watched any of these? What’s your favourite show to binge? What are you watching right now – either on Netflix or TV? Let me know in the comments, we’re clearly always looking for more shows!!

P.S. When we’re not watching our shows in bed on the iPad I love our Amazon Fire Stick – makes watching Netflix SO easy …which is probably a bit of a bad thing for us

  1. My husband and I watched How I Met Your Mother on Netflix a few years ago. We loved it. Gilmore Girls is one of my all time favorites. Right now I am binge watching One Tree Hill and was thinking about trying out Gossip Girl when I finish! Great list!
