Top 20 Binge Worthy TV Shows (and what to eat!)

It’s TV binge watching season and I’m in it to win it! It’s cold and let’s all cuddle up on the couch and chill. Below you’ll find my Top 20 Favorite Binge-Worthy Shows along with some recipes / snacks to make while you enjoy them!! And if I missed anything, shout it out in the comments below!

The Crown – hands down the best show ever
Madame Secretary – obsessed with all things Tea Leoni
Stranger Things – show of the summer!
American Crime Story / The People v. O.J. Simpson – crazy
Game of Thrones – JON SNOW FOREVER
Shameless – such a trainwreck, I can’t stop
Homeland – been a fan since day 1
Billions – fascinating!
Narcos – one of my favorites of all times.
Good Girls Revolt – on Amazon and it’s everything. Binged it in 2 days.
The Fall – oooooo so dark, and so good!
Westworld – is this going to be real life one day?
Orphan Black – beyond impressed with this one
Sons of Anarchy – Love me some Jax Teller
House of Cards – it’s the best
Bloodline – DARK but so good
Friday Night Lights – the best
Silicon Valley – hits so close to home considering my husbands job and I can’t get enough
Luther – obsessed
Breaking Bad – if you haven’t seen it, GET ON IT
Downton Abbey – YES

Honorable mentions:

  • This is Us (and the only reason its here is because it’s not a full season yet – so there isn’t that much to binge. OTHERWISE, it would be up top. It’s EVERYTHING)
  • Outlander – I haven’t actually watched it but my sister keeps threatening to disown me unless I get on board
  • True Detective (Season 1 only – Season 2 was a let down)
  • A Place to Call Home (it’s like Downton Abbey but in Australia)
  • Black Mirror – HOOKED!

And while we’re at it… a few of my favorite documentaries (most are on Netflix)

  • 13th
  • Blackfish – get ready to ugly cry.
  • The Ivory Game
  • Before the Flood
  • Virunga – LMK if you’re ready to go to Rwanda and save the gorillas after you watch this one!
  • Racing Extinction

And equally as important as what’s on TV… what to make while you’re mid-binge!

  1. This is a treasure trove of info, Gaby! I see several shows I’ve been wondering about, so I am going to give some of them a go next time I get ready to start a new binge watching session!
    And these snacks look out-of-this-world delish! Can’t wait to try those as well!
    Happy New Year, Gaby! Hope it’s a great 2017 for you!!! xo

  2. I agree! Love The Fall, Crown, This is Us, A place to call home, Good Girls Revolt! And a bunch of great ones on Acorn tv too! x Can’t wait to try some of these recipes! They look amazing! Happy New Year!!

  3. Solid picks, Gaby! I started the Crown and am only into the first episode and already love it. Obsessed with This is Us. I literally sob tears during each episode. It’s deep, real deep. Plus your food looks incredible. I don’t want January 1st to come because bye bye nachos and hello kale smoothies. Haha!

  4. I watched all 10 episodes of The Crown in 2 days when I was sick after Christmas. LOVE it so much and need more!!

  5. I am all about binge watching and that’s a great list of binge watching material! I have seen most of them and the ones I haven’t, I will certainly get on it! I am dying over that artichoke dip, btw!! Happy Holidays!!

  6. The A&E Scientology document-series with Leah Remini is absolutely worth watching. We are also enjoying Shooter on USA with Ryan Phillipe.

  7. I have seen many of these and really loved them. My list is now getting ever longer!!!! Bring on the snacks!
