  • Hunter’s
  • Westworld – first few seasons are great. Lost me in the last season
  • Sons of Anarchy

  • The Defiant Ones – it’s a quick 4 episode special and I’ve never been more inspired after watching something.

  • The Keepers – fascinating and depressing all at the same time.

And some old school favorites:

  • Breaking Bad – if you haven’t seen it, GET ON IT
  • Downton Abbey – YES
  • The Americans – obviously
  • Happy Valley – all about those BBC dramas!
  • Broadchurch – dark and twisted and SO FREAKING GOOD.
  • True Detective – Season 1 and 3 ONLY, season 2 was a full on disaster!
  • Bloodline – yessssss
  • Good Girls Revolt – on Amazon and it’s everything. Binged it in 2 days.

And while we’re at it… a few of my favorite documentaries

  • 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
  • The Last Dance – shockingly obsessed

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

    Have you watched Watchmen on HBO with Regina King. Puzzling to put the pieces together, but I’m hooked!

  2. Sharon Ochsner

    Have you watched Schitt’s Creek on Netflix? Love, love that show! It’s definitely binge worthy!

  3. Wendy Adcock

    All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I have watched some of these but have been looking for a list of shows to binge. Look out couch here I come! (sad but perfect for snowy weekend)

  4. Leslie Register

    Thanks for all the great suggestions for binge watching! Can’t wait to check them out. One of our favorites I didn’t see on your list is Episodes. It’s hilarious. Not for younger audiences!

  5. Sahara

    Miranda and Kim’s Convenience are my top full face bust a smile from your toes inducers

  6. Margo

    Schitt’s Creek on Netflix! One of the funniest shows I’ve even seen..the current season is on Pop TV.

      Judging from your must watch TV list, you’re in for a treat with Killing Eve. I second Chrissie’s recommendation. Thanks for the other rec’s!

  7. Carla Cumming

    If you liked Sons of Anarchy, then you must watch Justified. As well, The Shield was a ground-breaking drama series in its day. Broke all the usual rules before The Sopranos hit the airwaves. Am currently enjoying Sneaky Pete, which has a lot of the same production/writing staff and actors as Justified. Good to have binge-worthy shows to watch while self-isolatin/social distancing at home.

    What is that delicious dish at the top of this post? Humus with chick peas, kidney beans and pomegranate?

  9. Arlene Capsimalis

    Justified!!! Was originally on FX, available now on Hulu.

  10. Helen

    Gabby, that’s quite a list of recommendations for binge watching. Honestly trying to get out for a long walk daily. I fear we’re all gonna be packing on the pounds testing your great recipes. Since you enjoyed Dear John, listen to podcast by same producers: Dr Death. It’s currently being made into a limited series (for new Peacock Network.)

  11. JoJo

    May I suggest SUCCESSION?!!! I would def agree with your top suggestions. But give this one a try – it is Incredible. Like can’t stop watching, can’t look away, don’t want it to end, still thinking about the last episode you watched days later!!!

  12. Mary Siciliano

    You should try The Kominsky Method on Netflix. It stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin and has so many great cameo roles! It is written well and is light hearted and enjoyable from start to finish.

  13. Mary Siciliano

    Oh and Catastrophe on Amazon Prime and After Life with Ricky Gervais on Netflix!

    I’ll Be Gone in the Dark on HBO (docuseries). So so good. It’s about more than what the reviews say it is. So amazing.
