Top Shows to Binge Watch

Scary Mommy recently published the article The 20 Best Shows for New Moms to Binge Watch and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. These days I spend a lot of time on the couch feeding the little man or letting him nap on me so I’ve been filling my Netflix queue (what did we ever do before Netflix?!) with recommendations from friends.


During my maternity leave with Caroline I re-watched The Office from start to finish and loved it because I didn’t have to think too hard or follow too closely and the episodes were short (and ridiculously funny). This time around I’ve been binge watching Parenthood and am addicted. It is so, so, so good and although I’m only on season 4 I am already angry that season 6 is not available on Netflix yet. Soooo, once I finish this series I am going to need a new show to replace it!

According to the article, the top 20 shows are listed below:

1. *Gilmore Girls
2. Parenthood
3. The Mindy Project

4. Nashville
5. *New Girl
6. *Orange Is the New Black

7. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

8. Weeds

9. *The Office
10. The White Queen

11. Game of Thrones

12. Doctor Who

13. Once Upon a Time

14. *Friends

15. Portlandia
16. Futurama
17. 3rd Rock from the Sun

18. 30 Rock
19. Modern Family
20. *Buffy the Vampire Slayer

If I had to add my own recommendations to this list I would also include…

1. Lost

2. Bloodline

3. Scandal

4. Suits

5. Revenge

6. Naked & Afraid

7. Breaking Bad 

So my question for you all is…which series should I binge watch next?! I can’t decide! There are so many shows that I haven’t seen before but part of me would also love to stroll down memory lane with Gilmore Girls or Buffy!

I'm a fellow binge watcher. My favorite was Parenthood. I loved Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill and Hart of Dixie on Netflix. I started Pretty Little Liars while home with Griffin, and got HOOKED. It still comes on, and my husband is hooked, too. Watch it! ?

I'm currently rewatching The Office too. Very funny and doesn't require too much concentration. If you like Orange is the New Black, check out Wentworth. A bit darker than Orange, but so good!
