Realistic Resolution #4: Indulge in Something Binge-Worthy on Netflix :)

As part of my series of Realistic Resolutions, I thought why not include something to indulge in?  THAT is something that most of us can handle 🙂

I have noticed that when I get together with friends many people ask “What is worth ‘starting’ on Netflix?“. I’ve noticed the same question in my Facebook feed more than once.

I figured this would be a great way to share some of what I would consider Binge-worthy on Netflix in case some of you are wondering what to ‘start’ next 🙂

Allow me to clarify that Binge-watching is not for everyone- but here’s the thing- if you don’t want to / have time to ‘binge watch’, you don’t have to…you can take it slowly 🙂 The idea is that these shows are actually binge-worthy.

Here are some that my hubby and I really enjoyed.  ( I will share a list for families in a separate post).

I’m not going to tell you what each is about – you can check that out on Netflix…or you can do what my hubby & I did – just start watching because so many people said that it was great. We did and enjoyed figuring it out on our own 🙂

The Good Wife - 9022457The Good Wife: This was our first-ever Netflix “Binge” on spring break two years ago.  We couldn’t go to sleep…”Just one more episode…” and then “Ok- one more?!?

Homeland - 21545348Homeland: It may take you an episode or two to get into, but you will be drawn in- it’s excellent. Truthfully some seasons are better than others but overall- very binge-worthy 🙂

House of Cards - 21068638House of Cards: WARNING: No spoilers here but allow yourself to get over the disturbing scene at the very beginning (involves a dog). We actually turned off the show started Homeland because I couldn’t handle that scene.  A friend told me to get over it & go back, that I’d love the show. I did. She was right 🙂 )

Scandal-23041154Scandal: Our binge that began just before and continued through this past winter break – We were absolutely hooked!

The following are shows that we watched either on TV or via ‘boxed sets’ back in the day…all of them are VERY binge-worthy!


Heros - 8423881


Lost - 8383869


X-Files - 9993649


24 - 8334591

Grey’s Anatomy

Grey's Anatomy - 21831514

Prison Break

Prison Break - 9217577

So what will your binge be?  Also: Any recommendations for me and other readers?  Would love to hear from you!

Wishing you an indulgent binge 😉

  1. 2 other favs: Daredevil (it’s surprisingly amazing) and an “old” classic, Breaking Bad. (I’ve also heard Making of a Murderer is very addictive as well).

  2. “Rectify” is riveting. All 3 seasons are on Netflix, and Season 4 will be aired in the summer. What’s cool about this show, besides the compelling characters, writing, and acting, is that it airs on an American cable channel on Thursdays and on Friday, the new episode is available for streaming on Netflix – but only in Canada.

    “Wentworth” – a hard look at life in a women’s prison in Australia. Dramatic story lines and it is extremely well written.

    For the happier side, “Gilmore Girls” is a great show. I only discovered it via Netflix. I’ve watched it through twice.

    The American version of “The Office”. Entirely re-watchable and som cringeworthy moments as well as giggles. Great storylines too.

    I’m about to start “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”, a Netflix original about to go into its 2nd season. I’ve heard great things about it.
