Shows I Love to Binge

Today we're looking at ALL the shows I love to binge watch.  It's funny my husband and I hemmed and hawed for years about cutting the cable cord and going with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon and yet I just LOVE it!  

I love no commercials, I love getting to watch episode after episode so I don't have to hang on with cliff hangers.  It's great.  

While I love to binge I won't typically re-watch a show once I've watched it in it's entirety.  Some shows I love so much I watch in just a few short weeks and other shows I watch here and there as I'm waiting to find that next show that I just can not get enough of. 



All the shows listed today are ones I've watched recently but you can also see 10 other Netflix shows I've enjoyed here and some of my favorite streaming shows here.  

1.  Cougar Town (Hulu)--  Courtney Cox is a real estate agent living with her son in Florida.  Her house is always filled with her neighbors, ex- husband, and assorted other characters and they are a cute and quirky bunch of friends.  (most of the FRIENDS cast makes a guest appearance at some point or other too and I just loved that).



2.  Brothers and Sisters (Hulu)-- I'm only on like episode 3 or 4 of this show but so far I am loving it!  It reminds me just a bit of Parenthood with all the family dramas and dynamics.  The Walker family struggles to hold onto their family business after the death of their father.  



3.  Breaking Bad (Netflix)-- When Walter, a struggling chemistry teacher, finds out he has cancer he goes a little wild and decides to start cooking meth to raise money to leave behind for his family.



4.  Mr.  Iglesias (Netflix)-- Comedian Gabriel "Fluffy" Inglesias is a high school teacher fighting for his kids in a school district that is fighting to stay afloat.  



5. Hart of Dixie (Netflix)-- Zoe Hart is all set to become a surgeon in New York City when her life falls apart.  Following a job lead, she finds herself in Bluebell, Alabama working as a general practitioner in a small country town.   In one week I already managed to watch an entire season!



6.  Veronica Mars (Hulu)-- Veronica is in high school and her father is a private eye.  Veronica often finds herself helping out solving simple cases for her father all while trying to unravel a really big mystery that had turned her life upside down.  



As a family we are enjoying:

1.  Celebrity Family Feud (Hulu)-- While some of the question can be a bit risqué my boys and I are enjoying watching this fun version of Family Feud. 



2.  America's Got Talent (Hulu)-- This talent show it so much fun!  



3.  Malcolm in the Middle (Hulu)-- I was looking around for something else we could all watch together as a family and I thought this might appeal to my boys.  A dysfunctional family of 4 (and eventually 5) rambunctious boys told from the perspective of Malcolm, the middle son who tested at a genius level.  



4. American Housewife (Hulu)- Katie Otto is an American housewife trying to raise her family in a very wealthy area of Ct; Westport.  Katie doesn't fit in with all the other "perfect" housewives and moms and she's rather proud of that fact.

    1. It can be hard to find the time to watch TV; most of the time I'd much rather read or work on my blogging so TV gets pushed to the back burner.

    1. My middle son started watching American Housewife with me just last year and had not seen any of the earlier episodes so we all went back and started watching from season 1 together.

  4. I always wanted to try Cougar Town and it seemed to be a hit, so I really need to add this to my list.

  7. I have heard really good things about Hart of Dixie - It's on my list for sure now!

  8. Oh, I loved Heart Of Dixie and Veronica Mars. Good picks.

  9. I haven't seen any of these (except a few eps of America's Got Talent)! I'm probably in the minority for not having seen Breaking Bad. Cougar Town sounds fun! I've recently binge-watched Ozark, Chef's Table, Kaminsky Method, and now I'm watching Shtisel (not for everyone, but I find it fascinating).

  10. Most of these shows are new to me.
    The description of Veronica Mars reminds me of the Nancy Drew books I read as a kid.

    1. It does remind me a bit of Nancy Drew! Except Veronica picks up cases from her own father's office.
