With the exception of a few shows, there’s not much to watch during the summer season on TV. So naturally, summer is my biggest Netflix/Amazon Prime binge watching time of the year. While I’m still trying to figure out which shows will be on my binge-list this summer, I’ve compiled a list of 8 that I’ve watched and can vouch for, for your list. Check them out below!
1 // Orange is the New Black – Season 3 hits will be available to stream this Friday! Woo! Based on a true story (but stretched for entertainment purposes), this show
2 // Scandal – Seriously suffering from #TGIT withdraws. Just when you think this show is only going to go downhill, you’re sucked back in with more craziness. Love me some Scandal!
3 // Gilmore Girls – Believe it or not, I still haven’t seen this series in its entirety (just random episodes out of order)! This is one I definitely want to start from the beginning at some point this summer.
4 // Sherlock – This show is brilliant! If you’re into Sherlock Holmes, British things, mystery, and/or Benedict Cumberbatch, it’s for you. Each episode is 90 minutes (more like a movie) and there are only 3 per season.
5 // House of Cards – This Netflix original is heavily infused with politics and can be hard to follow if you’re not paying full attention. But with Kevin Spacey and Robin Penn, the acting is top notch, and OH the drama of Washington DC!
6 // Downton Abbey – I’m in the middle of this one now, and am loving it so far! I’ll admit it was a bit hard to get into at first, but likely because I’m a multi-tasked and you can’t multitask when watching this show! Set in the early 1900s, the show follows a family and their servants in the English countryside. The amount of drama in this show is nuts!
7 // Orphan Black – This is one of my favorite shows on TV today! It’s kind of difficult to explain the complicated storyline, but basically there are clones. And they’re just starting to find out what they are and who their fellow clones are. And they’re being targeted and offed one by one.
8 // Homeland – This one was on my binge list last year and it was very intense! Focused on CIA operations both in the country and out, you’ll be on the edge of your seat quite a bit with this show!
