I think one of the best things in life is finding an amazing series on Netflix, preferably with several seasons that each has just over 20 episodes, and getting completely hooked! There’s a lot of series I like but only a handful where I’ve spent pretty much all day watching because I just can’t get enough and I’m so invested in the story.
As it’s the weekend I thought I’d give you all recommendations of shows that I am completely obsessed with, so you can binge watch them all tonight and tomorrow!
I recently finished watching this for the first time and immediately began watching it all over again. It has become one of my all-time favourite TV shows! I am obsessed and I really hope they make another season because the ending of ‘A Year in the Life’ left me with so many questions and I am dying to see what happens to the girls and the town next. I’d be perfectly happy if they released a hundred more seasons following the rest of the girl’s lives. I’d also really be interested in seeing a spin-off about Lorelai’s life before Rory. I cannot recommend this show enough! Everyone needs to see it. There are seven seasons, eight if you include a ‘Year in the Life’ with over 20 episodes each around 45 minutes each. A Year in the Life has 4 episode but they’re all an hour and a half.
Side note: I hated Logan and am 100% team Jess!
Orange is the New Black
This is one powerful show! I have cried many tears while watching this. The only thing I looked forward to in the summer is the release of a new Orange is the New Black season. As the show goes on I find myself disliking Piper more and more but I love all the other characters, Taystee, Red, Lorna, Suzanne, Sophia, Big Boo, and really want them to be happy and get the treatment they deserve. It’s a darkly funny show and completely compelling! There are currently 5 seasons, each with 13 episodes all an hour long so plenty to watch!
If you had read my Gossip Girl Tag post, you will now that I’ve recently rediscovered my love for this show and have been steadily binge watching it again. It’s so full of drama it’s difficult not to get addicted, even my boyfriend loves it and can’t stop watching! Plus Blair Waldorf is an absolute queen and the only reason you need to start watching. There are 6 seasons with more or less 20 episodes each around 45 minutes.
This show is everything! The characters, storyline, music, drama and monsters are all just total perfection. Honestly, if you haven’t heard of or watched it yet you are missing out! Dustin is definitely my favourite character, the last episode of season 2 had me crying buckets. It’s tense, darkly humorous and always makes me feel weirdly cosy and happy, probably because it’s set during Autumn and watching it makes me wish autumn was still here. At the moment there are only 2 seasons, although a 3rd will be released sometime this year and a 4th is promised. They have 8 and 9 episodes that range between 45-60 minutes. While it’s not a long series to binge it’s definitely worth it.
Pretty Little Liars
I’m not going to lie, Pretty Little Liars too me a while to get into. The writing and the acting aren’t great but slowly it grew on me and I became completely addicted! This show gives me actual chills. It’s a great mystery that’ll keep you wanting more and if you can get past its flaws and enjoy it for what it is you’ll understand most people’s obsession. Although maybe skip the final episode because that truly was the biggest disappointment in TV history. Oh and if you’re interested my favourite Liar is Hanna and least favourite is Alison. There are 7 seasons with at least 20 episodes at roughly 45 minutes each.
This series is disturbingly fascinating, once you start watching you won’t be able to stop! Each episode is a different story, some I like some I dislike but all are very clever and makes you think about the world and how it’s evolving. There are currently 4 seasons with 6 and fewer episodes that all last for about an hour.
Orphan Black is genius. Pure genius! The very first episode had me completely hooked and in love with Tatiana Maslany. There’s always some unexpected, clever twist that leaves you with your mouth gaping open and hitting the ‘skip recap/intro’ button. I love all of the characters, with the exception of Paul, and wish they had made more seasons but alas all good things must come to an end the ending of this series was perfect. I’ve also been compared to Alison a couple times and could never decide if that was a good or bad thing. There are a total of 5 seasons with 10 episodes each, lasting for about 45 minutes.
Those are all my favourite, binge-worthy shows on Netflix. I hope I gave you some good suggestions and that you have a chilled out Sunday watching some incredible shows! How many on this list have you seen?
