Binge-Worthy TV Shows #TopTenTuesday


This is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

The topic for today's list is:

Binge-Worthy TV Shows


I must confess, I am a Netflix binger. I actually very rarely watch television, so I am not up to date at all on any new shows and don't PVR anything because I don't have the time to keep up with a weekly tv series. However, if that series is on Netflix and I can watch at my leisure, I have been known to binge on a few episodes at a time now and again! Here are my faves:


SupernaturalAh, those Winchester boys! Can you ever really grow tired of watching them, er, I mean this show? I loooooooove urban legends, and this show is totally up my alley. Sam and Dean Winchester hunt the bad guys, like: demons, witches, ghosts, monsters, vampires, and other supernatural beings. It's a creepy show. And did I mention the Winchester boys?? I'm only on the fourth season on Netflix, and Season 14 is airing in October. I am a little behind!





The Walking Dead: This show made zombies scary again! When I think of zombies, I always think of those cheesy B-movies, which aren't at all scary but actually comical! This show freaks me out!! I literally jump out of my skin watching it. I like Rick, but my favourite is Daryl Dixon pictured there above.


The ZooArgh, this show was cancelled after three season but I did enjoy it and it's still on Netflix. Animals are becoming smarter, coordinating attacks on humans. The show is based on the book by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge (on my TBR). 


Once Upon A TimeI loved this show because it was something that I could watch with both of my kids. However, I didn't enjoy the last couple of seasons as much as the first ones. I think they strayed too far away from the core characters. My daughters ended up losing interest in the show.





Game of Thrones: No, this isn't on Netflix. However, my local library has the DVDs for each season, so I rent them from there! I am currently watching Season 4.




True Blood: This show is NOT on Netflix so, unfortunately, I haven't watched it in a very long time. I keep hoping that Netflix will pick it up sooner or later! I should check if my library carries the DVDs!



LostI loved this show! I loved everything about it: a show featuring plane crash survivors on a mysterious island with both science fiction and supernatural elements. I thought the show was very well done, and the flashback and flash-forward episodes were so unique but integral to the story. Remember Sawyer? Wait, let me pull up a pic:

Those dimples! Yes, I miss Sawyer, and I miss Lost. It is also on Netflix, although I haven't re-watched it yet.





Buffy The Vampire Slayer: I realize that this show has not been on the air since 2003, but it was one of my favourites! Thanks to Netflix, I can watch the entire series all over again! Vampires, slayers, werewolves, demons, witches - it has it all! Did I mention it has David Boreanaz?





Angel: You can't have one without the other, right? This is the spin-off from the Buffy series that features Angel (David Boreanaz), a vampire with a soul. It, too, is on Netflix (thank you!).





Alias: Sydney Bristow was one kick-ass chick! She was a double-agent for the CIA, and I loved how she constantly reinvented herself for whatever role she was trying to assume. This is probably one of very few shows that I watched that wasn't paranormal/fantasy! I wish that it was on Netflix. I'd love to re-watch it.

Alright, so are you seeing a theme here? I definitely favour the fantasy/paranormal television shows, which coincides with the genres that like to read!

This next one is an exception:

How I Met Your Mother: I rarely watch sitcoms, but this wacky cast always cracks me up...especially Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris). I had started watching this series when it first aired in 2005, but I quickly lost track of it by the time my second daughter was born in 2007. I found it recently on Netflix and binged the whole series. It was excellent!


So, what tv shows do you think are binge-worthy? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!
