Netflix Shows to Binge Watch // Spring 2018

Today I’m here to bring you a post about my top 10 Netflix shows that I’ve been binge watching.Being home with a new baby leaves little time to read, so I’ve been watching a lot of TV. It’s easy to throw on Netflix while feeding Emmy or cleaning up. If I don’t mention your favorite show make sure to leave me a comment as I’m always in search of new shows to try. I’ve narrowed this list down to only 10 because I have tons and I don’t want this post to be huge. These are in no particular order.

1.Jane the Virgin

Jane is a young latinix writer,working as a waitress in a hotel. Her life drastically changes when she goes to the doctor a virgin and accidentally gets artificiality inseminated with her boss’ sperm. I was not expecting to love this show as much as I do. This show is hilarious, the jokes will have you laughing out loud. The dialogue is so fun and the character’s are great.

2.Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is an older favorite of mine, I started watching it while still in high school although I never saw the final season until now. The show follows a group of privileged New York teens. This show is not meant to be taken seriously, Serena is the stereotypical blond party girl, Blair is a queen of the school, Nate the pretty boy, Chuck is a womanizing party boy and Dan the outsider. The actors/actresses are gorgeous and the setting is glamorous. I love this show so much, I will forever ship Blair/Chuck!!

3.Supernatural

I’ve watched this show for 13 years now, its a drama that follows two brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester. They hunt supernatural creatures, the show takes a turn in season 4 and starts to include biblical character’s. Dean will forever be one of my favorite character’s. If you’re new to this show then you’re in for one crazy wild ride.This show has everything; love,friendship,family. But it’s the character’s that will keep you coming back.

4.Shameless

This is probably my favorite show, it has it’s problems but I still love it. This show follows the Gallagher family, Frank is an absent alcoholic father played by William H Macy. Fiona(Emmy Rossum) is the eldest daughter of six children, she holds the family together while dealing with crazy situations that her family goes through. The casting is terrific, I love these character’s so much. Some have left the show and it has gone slightly down hill but I still love this show so much!

5.The Office

This show is pretty new to me, I first watched it 2 years ago. I’m usually not a huge fan of comedy shows, but this one is perfect. It’s filmed as if it were a documentary, about a paper company and it’s employees. Steve carrel plays Micheal Scott the manager of the company, and he’s brilliant!! The character’s are all well developed and funny in their own way. Jim/Pam’s relationship is adorable, and there pranks on Dwight is the highlight of the show. This show is perfect for a self care binge watch.

6.Jessica Jones

It’s been 2 years since I watched season 1, I’m currently in the middle of a re-watch as season 2 was released last week. This show is incredible ! Jessica is a kick-ass PI with super strength, after going through some major trauma’s she tries to rebuild her life while suffering from PTSD. Killgrave (David Tennant) is one of the best villain’s ever. He is a sociopath with the ability to control minds. This show is just so good !

7.Gilmore Girls

What kind of list would this be if I didn’t include Gilmore Girls. I come back to this show every fall,it’s my comfort show. Gilmore Girls is my favorite TV show of all times. The story follows a mother/daughter relationship, in a small town in Connecticut. I love the witty dialog, and the complex relationships of the character’s. I could write pages and pages about these character’s and why I love them so much, but I wont do that right now.You won’t regret watching this show, you will laugh and cry, its just so good.

8.Heartland

A Canadian show about Amy Fleming, a teenage girl who has a special gift for understanding and treating troubled horses. This is a heartwarming, family centered show. I love the characters and love the horses. The setting is in Alberta and it’s a beautiful backdrop for the show.Once you see a few episode’s it will pull you in to keep wanting more.I strongly recommend this show.

9. Outlander

Claire Randall,a combat nurse from 1945 who is transported back in time to 1743 Scotland. I had never read the book’s before watching the show, as of now I’ve read half of book one. The show follows the book pretty closely. I loved their choice of actors to take on the roles of Jamie and Claire,there perfect. The costumes and scenery are gorgeous. The show has the right amount of action to romance.

10. This is Us

The lives of Rebecca, Jack and their three children – Kevin, Kate and Randall – are followed at different points in time. The Rebecca and Jack stories generally take place during the early stage of their marriage. Separate stories for Kevin, Kate and Randall are followed in their adult years. I was hooked right from the first episode.I LOVED IT ! It was wonderfully written,the acting is excellent. This show will continue to break your heart, but you will keep coming back.
