11.Lost (6 of 6 seasons)

Looking for a mystery, but don’t care if it gets solved?   Lost is the best drama of all time. During it’s run on Primetime it was the most watched show due to being suspenseful and completely engrossing.  SPOILER The ending was a huge let down, leaving fans wondering and guessing what in the world just happened?

10.House of Cards (4 of 4 seasons)

House of Cards Season 4 on Netflix
Netflix’s first original programming, and it was is worth every cent! With a $100 million production budget the series was catapulted to the top!  Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) uses ruthless manipulation to gain political power.

9.Black Mirror (3 of 3 seasons)

Black Mirror is amazing!  With only 6 episodes available it is the Twilight Zone for the modern world.  With riveting commentary about the current and future technology age this short series will have you hooked and begging for more!

8.Friends (10 of 10 seasons)

What could we say about Friends that you haven’t already heard?  With all 10 seasons you will be able to relive all the Ross and Rachel drama, hear Phoebe sing about Smelly Cat and hear Joey and Chandler talk about girls.   Friends remains the most watched and re-watchable sitcom ever.

7.Bloodline (2 of 2 seasons)

The second season of Netflix original Bloodline is set to air on May 27.
Another Netflix Original that hit the streaming service by storm is Bloodline.  It  is engrossing from the moment you start watching!   The family back story keeps you wanting more and the friction between the siblings will leave you with feeling like you are one of them.  Unfortunately, Season 2 was a big let down and Netflix hasn’t announce if there will be a Season 3.

 6.Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (2 of 2 seasons)

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

It’s funny, ridiculous, witty and maybe the most enjoyable Netflix original series to binge-watch. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is produced by Tina Fey, it also includes some unexpected celebrity cameos.

 5.Gilmore Girls (7 of 7 seasons + A Year In The Life)

Gilmore Girls will premiere on Netflix this year.
Gilmore Girls has managed to come back stronger then ever.   The relationship between single mom Lorelai and her daughter, Rory reminds us all how important it is to cherish those bonds.

 4.Scrubs (9 of 9 seasons)


The bromance between J.D. and Turk is one of the best ever on TV.  Although, the series has the Turk Dance going for it, this show has a lot of other things as well.  Dr. Cox’s being one of them,  due to his callused way of treating the interns, residents and his co-workers is just hysterical.

 3.Breaking Bad (5 of 5 seasons)

Breaking Bad takes us on a walk on the dark side. High school chem teacher turned meth maker.  His family is clueless for awhile but they find out along with  a lot of others(dealers, police, friends)  exactly what he is doing in the RV in the middle of the desert.

 2.Orange is the New Black (4 of 4 seasons)

Orange is the New Black Season 3 on Netflix

This prison dramedy is funny and heart warming shows about life on the inside of a woman’s prison. OITNB turns these criminals into real human beings and reminds us that, every person matters.  It’s an incredible series!

1.The Walking Dead (6 of 7 seasons)

The Walking Dead Season 6 Netflix

Hands Down, the best series on television!  The zombie apocalypse thriller drama is worthy of binge watching,  due to it’s ability to kill off cast members no matter what their rank.  No one is safe and there are many that you see taken as you watch from season 1.  However,  it’s very difficult to be surprised due to all the media hype surrounding the show.  Season 6 cliffhanger has got to be the best of all times leaving fans hang for months! ( and we are still waiting for season 7 on Netflix)

Honestly, I have seen every one of these and I will tell you that it’s hard to compete with any of them.  After binge watching you think “there can not possibly be a better show then that”.  Then you start another from this list and you are right back in it!  Happy Binge Watching!
