My Favorite Binge-Worthy TV Shows {Top Ten Tuesday}

180904 Binge-Worthy TV Shows

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

With the new TV season starting, today is all about binge-worthy TV shows! (Because it doesn’t always have to be about books). Now, I used to be a huge tv show junkie. Meaning, I followed about 10-15 shows religiously and watched them every evening as soon as they came out. Lately, I’ve almost stopped that completely. Why?

One, because a lot of shows I used to love just seem to go on too long and I end up losing interest.
Two, because I started preferring binge-watching shows with shorter seasons over weekly watching shows with longer seasons.

To me, shorter seasons make for tighter storylines and are just much more fun to binge-watch. I watch them for a certain period, as long as it takes me to finish them, and then I move on to the next tv show. So these are a few of my latest binge-watch obsessions!

Sherlock

Sherlock

I’ve been in a mood to rewatch this entire series lately. I binged all seasons last year and adored it. The bromance. The humor. The mysteries. But mostly, the bromance <3

Stranger Things

Stranger Things

Is it almost time for season 3? I love this weird, creepy, funny  show with so much heart.

Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies

A murder mystery set around kindergarten mums is just genius. Add this cast and wow, this show is absolutely brilliant.

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones

The fantasy staple. I am both waiting impatiently for the final season and don’t want it to end yet. But who will end up on the Iron Throne???

Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones

I can’t describe the amount of love I have for Miss Jessica Jones. The troubled, alcoholic detective with superstrength should maybe not be my first choice for most favorite character ever, but that’s just the way it is.

Queer Eye

Queer Eye

This show is just so precious and soul-cleansing. It is so much more than your classic make-over show and the Fab Five are wonderful.

The 100

The 100

I think The 100 is the exception as a show I still watch and impatiently wait for each new episode every week. No patience to wait until it all comes out so I can binge, I need every single episode as soon as I can get them! But even so, I highly recommend binge-watching too!

The End of the Fxxxing World

The End of the Fxxxing World

A roadtrip between a psychopath and the girl he want to murder. Who knew I could fall in love with a couple of troubled kids so, so much?

Kdramas

Kdramas

Though I haven’t been watching as much TV as I used to, I have fallen head over heels in love with kdramas. They’re one season of goodness, 16-20 outstanding episodes and then it’s over and I LOVE IT. I’ve watched quite a few over the past year, but my favorites so far are Goblin, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, While You Were Sleeping, A Korean Odyssey, W Two Worlds, You’re Beautiful and Legend of the Blue Sea. (Is it obvious I love a lot of them?)

    I completely agree about the shorter seasons. I’m not a big fan of the ones that go on for too long because A) They usually loose steam after a while and get bad and B) it’s just so much to watch!

    Big Little Lies was amazing . The perfect series length, and so addictive! I loved it.

    I’m also a big fan of Sherlock. However I’m currently on season 4 and just think it’s awful 😦 I think the writers ruined it from the end of series 3. It’s so disappointing because it was seriously one of the best shows out there! At least I thought so.

    Great post, Lindsey! My favourite shows to binge are F.R.I.E.N.D.S, The Vampire Diaries, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine 🙂

    I love Sherlock and Game of Thrones-I totally agree, I prefer shows with shorter seasons, long seasons tend to have a lot of filler with some outstanding episodes, whereas short season shows usually keep up the quality all the way through!

    I’m actually a really bad binge watcher, so if a season doesn’t have too many episodes, it’s easier for me to watch. There are still so many shows I want to watch and just need to make time for though. I’m still a few episodes away from finishing Jessica Jones s1 so I need to get on that, because I do love it, and I know s2 is out. I LOVE Sherlock. I need to watch all of this last season though – I’ve only seen the first one, because my DVR messed up the taping when it first aired. I really want to watch THE END OF THE FXXXING WORLD so hopefully soon!!!

    I love your list, Lindsey! I also love Sherlock, Stranger Things, Big Little Lies, Game of Thrones, Jessica Jones and The 100 (still have some episodes of the latest season to watch though.) Lately I’ve only been rewatching old favorites like Charmed and One Tree Hill.

    I’ve never watched a K-drama before I had no idea that they were so short. the ones you mentioned sounded really interesting. I’m really bad at committing to to shows so the length sounds really appealing to me.
