My Top 10 TV Shows I recommend to binge-watch NOW.

Today, we rarely take the time to get up off the couch to place a DVD or Blu ray disc into the slot and hit play. With online streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime; etc; at our fingertips, of course we would all rather choose a TV show to binge watch that is available on those platforms. 

Without further adieu, here are my top 10 favorite tv shows you can binge watch on either Netflix, or Hulu RIGHT NOW. 

10. Gilmore Girls

Yes...Gilmore Girls. Now, this show like most of the other shows on this list has run its course. I began watching this show after attending a sleepover with my bestie back in high school. She and her mom were all each other had for quite a few years, so this show was pretty much them in a nutshell.  I humbly advise if you are not one of 90.24% who have seen it all, then you grab some pizza, pop, and a couch, stat! 

9. Charmed


With the highly anticipated reboot slated to hit the CW this fall, I recommend getting this show's 8 seasons under your belt while you have the 4 months or so to do so. Now, I love the Halliwell sisters to death ooohhh...burn! but, I am looking forward to seeing how this new show will feel. 

8. Saving Hope

Who doesn't love a medical drama, AIR?? I will be the first to confess that I have crushes on both of these amazing stars, Erica Durance and the great Michael Shanks. If you love Grey's Anatomy and have a Hulu account, then I totally 100% recommend this show to be on your BINGE LIST. 

7. Merlin


For those of you who have been living under a rock (or just simply don't have a Netflix account) one of BBC's best shows to grace my subscription box has been Merlin. I watched this show with my husband and we both proudly give it 8.5/10 stars! #bingeworthing


6. Stargate SG-1


This show is definitely for the family. If you've never heard of Richard Dean Anderson (which, you are not alone, I was unaware of Macgyver too) then shame on you (not really....)!! Unlike his previous show, RDA was only agreeing to jump on this show, given it was a starring cast and not just rising on his shoulders alone. Compared to its spin-offs, I vote SG-1 to be the show you choose to #bingewatch this weekend! 

5. Lucifer


Yes! The show that was only recently facing the #NetworkAxe by FOX, and promptly resurrected by Netflix weeks later! I will admit, I only started watching this show when I heard that they announced Tom Welling to be a regular cast member at San Diego Comic Con 2017. I do humbly urge you to #bingewatch this show because it is that f**king good! 

4. Once upon a Time


This fairytale show finally met its end this past spring with SEVEN SEASONS!!! This is definitely one show you have to watch from beginning to end! (it may be worth it to track down where you can watch its short-lived spin-off series Once upon a Time in Wonderland) What an amazing ensemble cast lead by two amazing women, Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) & Lana Parrilla (Regina)!! #bingeworthing

3. Bones


Bones is unlike any other show I have seen. (Although Lucifer references it in its 2nd season) I found this show by googling David Boreanaz when I got done binge watching all of Buffy and Angel. If you love a good will they or won't they? coupling (along with wonderful characters whose lives we need to follow as well) then this is the #bingeworthy show for you! 

2. Grey's Anatomy


I have to take this time here to thank my wonderful mother-in-law for reintroducing me to this show. (in the past, my sister mentioned it in passing, I tried watching it. Couldn't get past Season 1) Now, I love this show. There are so many things that make perfect sense....and oh so many that don't. But please, do not let that keep you away from watching this show. It will be returning in the fall on ABC for its 15th SEASON. Need I say more? #definitelybingeworthy

1. Smallville


Smallville. The TV love of my life. Without this show, I would not be who I am today. This show put Tom Welling on the map, & in my life. If you have not yet seen all of Smallville, I suggest you head over to Hulu right now & begin your #bingewatching immediately!
