If you're a TV addict like me, then I bet you have a list of shows that are perfect for binge-watching. Whether you prefer sitting on your couch or lounging in bed, there is nothing better than soaking in a few hours of a TV show. Binge-watching is almost therapeutic, in a way; for a few hours, you turn off the world around you and get completely sucked into whatever you’re watching. I know, I know, that sounds totally dramatic, but as any TV lover knows, it’s completely true. Wrapping yourself up in a TV series is an escape for your brain. It’s perfect after a long week of work and other commitments.
Whether it’s the latest thriller on Netflix or an old favorite, we all seem to have a few go-to options when it comes to taking part in an afternoon of binge-watching. TV show preferences are deeply personal. After spending hours with certain characters, you almost grow an attachment that is sort of inexplicable. TV binges can hook you in emotionally in ways that you could never imagine. Sure, you have errands to run or bills to pay, but you totally need to see what happens next on your show! You can’t just stop watching halfway through. Need a few suggestions for your next binge-watching session? Here are a few (or couple dozen) of my favorite binge-worthy TV shows.
