What’s better than getting enthralled in a good TV series? It draws you in, takes you on a journey, puts you in another world, another life. It’s so exciting to find a new show to immerse yourself in, but they’re not always easy to come by.
I’ve done a lot of research on this topic to find the most binge-worthy shows to watch, and boy did I find them. Below are my absolute favorite series of all time. They range from new and old, drama and comedy, but one thing remains the same: they are some of the most binge-worthy shows out there!
1) The West Wing — A brilliant dramedy about the lives of the President of the United States (Martin Sheen) and his staff. The writing is excellent and there is a perfect balance between comedy and drama. This is not a boring political drama, trust me!
2) Game of Thrones — An incredible visual and dramatic journey through a fantasy world filled with royals, sword battles, betrayal, and dragons. One of the most exciting and visually stunning shows I’ve ever seen with surprisingly relatable story lines and lovable characters.
3) The Office — A hilarious mockumentary about a deluded boss (Steve Carrell) and his employees. Steve Carrell is incredibly funny. I could watch this whole series over 3 times, which I’ve actually done. The comedy, paired perfectly with the great story lines, never gets old!
4) Breaking Bad — Just a phenomenal show about a family man turned crystal meth cooker and dealer. Trust me, it’s a must-watch!
5) Twin Peaks — One of the weirdest, most incredible shows out there. You’ll fall in love with Agent Dale Cooper whose quirkiness and charm add some much needed lightness to this otherwise dark, but awesome, tale.
6) Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt — A hilarious, uplifting comedy that will make you feel so happy about life. I can never get enough of Kimmy’s unbreakable spirit and hilarious dealing with everyday life after being released from captivity in a religious cult. This show is definitely a must see!
Some of my other favorites include: Westworld, Freaks & Geeks, Damages, Dexter, Parks and Recreation, Orphan Black, Bates Motel, Gilmore Girls, Mozart in the Jungle, and The Path.
