All My Favorite Binge-Worthy TV Shows

Favorite TV Series

Raise your hand if you’re addicted to watching TV… Those of you who keep up with my Instagram story know that I am obsessed with reality TV and Netflix. If I could envision my perfect weekend afternoon it would be snuggling up on the couch and binging season after season of an intense thriller or drama. What can I say? I’m a homebody!

Up until now I’d only revealed my little addiction on Instagram, but it’s been getting harder to ignore all the requests I’ve been getting to put together a list of my favorite shows. I’ll admit that I was a little hesitant to post this because, well, now you all know the true extent of my obsession. Before your jaw drops seeing this list just keep in mind this is a compilation of 8+ years of commitment to watching the tube— DON’T JUDGE.

Similar to my taste in books, I tend to favor thrillers and action series. I also loooooove a good historical drama. If you’re looking for lighthearted cable recs or comedies– you aren’t going to find any of this list. Basically the more shock factor and OMG moments: THE BETTER. I have such a short attention span it’s hard for me to get into basic cable shows when everything on HBO, Starz, Showtime and Cinemax can just take the drama to a whole other level. I also prefer binging more than one episode at a time, so many of these series I watched via Netflix. Shoutout to my Pop Pop for letting me use his subscription 😛 He’s the REAL MVP.

It pains me to include this category, but I gotta be honest with ya’ll. Don’t get me wrong. These are great shows.
