Binge Watching TV Shows

I just love binge-watching TV shows! It’s so fun for me to know that I have a great show waiting for me at the end of a busy day. Remember the days when you had to wait A WHOLE WEEK before it was time for the next exciting episode? How did we ever survive those days hahaha? And here we are now. So spoiled for choice without enough hours in the day to watch the endless variety of fantastic shows with just one or two clicks of the remote control.

So I’m joining up with this month’s fun edition of  “Not Just A Mom” link- up where we are talking about binge-watching TV shows. I’m excited to read about what everyone else is watching! And I have put together a list of some shows that I am currently binge-watching or have already watched.

TV Shows That I Have Loved Binge Watching

The Gilmore Girls

Such a fun show that I can watch over and over! Sometimes I just like to have it playing in the background while I am doing chores. The fast-talking witty dialogue is just amazing and so is Lorelai’s wardrobe. Oh, how I wish I could live in a town like Stars Hollow.

Money Heist

This Spanish drama has you on the edge of your seat all the time!! Only watch it if you have a strong healthy heart. I had to pause it a few times just so I could recover from the intensity. If you can, then watch it with subtitles because it’s so much better than the voice-over version.

Cobra Kai

Such a great trip down memory lane! I love how they have brought most of the original characters back who are now slightly a whole lot older. The storyline is quite clever and the fight scenes are fantastic. It’s a big winner in my opinion!!

The Durrells

If you are looking for a show that leaves you feeling so good. Then this is the show for you. I fell in love with all the characters and when I finished binge-watching this beautiful show I felt such a loss. My bestie watched it around the same time as I did and we both had the post-show blues when it ended.

In The Club

Another great British show that only went for two seasons. It’s about a group of six couples who meet at a pre-natal class and soon become firm friends. There’s drama, tears, laughs, and lots of joy. I kind of stumbled across this show and I’m so glad that I did.

Cold Feet

I watched all of the original series and I loved it. I’m well into the reboot and I’m really enjoying it too. It’s very funny, dramatic, and sometimes downright sad.

Inventing Anna

I’m not sure if it was the show that I totally loved or how Anna Delphy was so cleverly portrayed by Julia Garner. It was probably both as it was a very enthralling account of the life of Anna Delphy, the fake heiress who stole millions. This show was anything but ‘basic’!!

Line Of Duty

I’m right in the thick of this show and it’s fantastic. It is so good that I really want to Google the ending because I can’t stand the suspense!!!


Sexy Swedish detective Kurt Wallander is played by Kenneth Branagh. That’s all I need to say.

Downton Abbey

This show is just such a must-see! If you haven’t watched it then drop everything and go watch it. The best part without giving any spoilers is that the finale is so satisfying. The series finished with everything wrapped up beautifully and I didn’t have to invent my own endings. Which is something that I sometimes do if I’m disappointed with how a show ends.

The Crown

Who isn’t fascinated with The British Royals? Well to tell you the truth I wasn’t until I watched this series. I know that there was a lot of artistic license but I really like how they have stuck to many historical accuracies. I learned so much (I did a Google fact check as I went along) and I am really looking forward to season 6 which comes out in 2023.

The Split

I found the first couple of episodes a bit slow going but I stuck to it and I am so glad that I did. It’s a fantastic British drama about the lives of the Defoe family. They all work in the family firm as divorce lawyers. You see them deal with the dramas that go on with their high-profile clients. As well as how they deal with their own relationship dramas.

I just love talking about binge-watching TV shows it’s such a fun topic. A while ago I did a post about Amazon Prime Shows that I was watching. You might like to check it out.

  1. I love a good binge on TV shows. I am rewatching The Walking Dead again at the moment.
    I started watching The Gilmore Girls and it’s OK but it didn’t really get me hooked but I love The Crown. Once I had started watching I couldn’t stop. x

      I have never watched The Walking Dead before but my oldest son was a big fan. I was tempted to give it a go but it looked a bit scary.

  2. I’ll have to see if I can find some of those. I forgot about Inventing Anna, loved that one! The Spanish one sounds good, agree with subtitles if you can, Squid Game was much better with subtitles.

  3. Funny we were just talking with our boys about how we had to wait entire weeks or even whole seasons sometimes to see the end of a cliff hanger show! LOL. Now I get annoyed when I have to wait. You have a lot of shows on your list I’ve never even heard of (and started Googling to see if we can watch them!).

  4. Oh my gosh I can’t believe I forgot Inventing Anna– I loved that show! A lot of yours are new to me but sound really good. I will need to see if I can find them here!
