Netflix Anyone?

So Thanksgiving is over, and here in Indiana winter is in full swing. The possible outdoor activities are becoming less and less, and the chance of a snow day is becoming greater and greater. The days of curling up on the couch, sipping hot chocolate, and binge watching TV shows are upon us.

So I am here to save the day and give you some insight on what to watch! (because one of my FAVORITE hobbies is watching Netflix with my hubby... we are the adventurous type I know)


Top 5 shows to binge watch on Netflix

Dexter offers everything you could want in a TV show; It's intense, funny, shocking, and thrilling. It's a show about a serial killer who only kills other serial killers. If that doesn't catch you I don't know what will! There are 8 seasons all streaming currently on Netflix and each one is just as good as the last. If you are looking for a family friendly show this isn't for you, but I know it is one of Seth and I's absolute favorites.

 The Office
If Dexter is a little dark for you have no fear because luckily for you The Office exists. I firmly believe that no matter what your sense of humor is you will laugh while watching this show. I have watched all 9 seasons fully through at least 3 times. Also each episode is only 30 minutes so if you aren't the binge watching type you can always catch an episode here and there when you have a few extra minutes. Definitely a must watch for anyone who likes to laugh (which I'm pretty sure is everyone).

Another must watch is House! The show centralizes on Dr. House, who is known for his terrible bed side manor, but also for is ability to save almost every patient. What at first seems to be just another Doctor show ends up being so much more. After finishing the 8th and final season I actually remember telling Seth how much I missed Dr. House (yes I get attached to fictional TV characters). They do a great job of balancing a central storyline while also bringing a fresh, exciting plot to each episode.

If you haven't watched Lost yet now is the time. It is the perfect example of a show that is best binge watched. Every episode of the show ends with you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next to begin. Lost, follows a group of survivors of a plane crash that lands on a less then normal island. All 6 seasons of the show are packed with enough plot twists to keep your head spinning for along while!

Parenthood has got to be one of my all time favorite shows. It is just a show about life and the struggles that everyone goes through. The characters are so loveable and relatable you start to feel like they are your own family. I have more then once found myself crying uncontrollably because I am so affected by what happens in their lives. The first 5 seasons are currently streaming on Netflix, and the 6th and final season is current airing on NBC on Thursday nights.

Other Notable mentions:

  • Starting on January 1st all 10 seasons of Friends will be streaming on Netflix!!
  • My current Netflix obsession is Revenge, which I'm just starting the second season, but LOVE it!
  • I'm also hooked on Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and Gilmore girls, so check those out as well!

I would love to hear what you think about the shows I've listed and also hear what shows you love to binge watch that I missed!

Hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing Sunday :)
