5 Most Binge-Worthy Shows

If there's one thing that the cold month of November is good for (aside from novel writing :D), it's binge-watching new and favorite shows on Netflix. One of my favorite past-times lately has been curling up under what I have dubbed the "magic blanket," sitting with my boyfriend and watching TV together, and whether it's something we've already seen or something entirely new, it's one of the best ways to spend an evening. Here are some of my favorite shows to binge on.
#1: The Fresh Prine of Bel Air! Recently my boyfriend and I have been binge-waching this 90's classic since we noticed it pop up on his Netflix recommendations. When I was younger I would certainly flip to a channel where a Fresh Prince episode was playing if I couldn't find any of my favorites on TV, but I never really took the time to watch many of these episodes back-to-back. I'm so glad that I did, because this show really is hilarious! There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and it's worth the watch even for the hilarious fashion choices.
#2: Sex and the City! Before you ask, I do consider myself more of a Carrie - but since I have the most exes out of all of my friends, they like to refer to me as a Samantha XP I can't remember exactly when my obsession with this show began, sometime during my undergrad, but within a month or so I had purchased all of the seasons of SATC on DVD. Whenever I'm in the mood for some fun ladies living in the big city, I'll pop on the first season and will make it all the way to the end of season 6, usually by the end of the week.
#3: Orange is the New Black! How can you talk about binge-watching without mentioning what is probably the most binge-worthy Netflix original series of all time? It wasn't until last year, when I was given access to the bf's Netflix account, that I was able to watch OITNB for the first time, and though it probably took me a few days (yes, only a few days :P) I burned through the first 3 seasons and waited anxiously for thr 4th until it finally arrived. Even though I've watched the entire series at least 5 times, I still like starting from the beginning and driving through the entire thing, even if it's just on in the background.
#4: Friends! Yes, the original binge-worthy sitcom, at least in my opinion. This show, along with Everybody Loves Raymond, was the first show where I owned the entire series on DVD. I couldn't even tell you how many times I have waded through all 10 seasons (and even if I did remember, saying the actual number might make me sound obsessive XD). It's not only something I enjoy watching when I'm feeling down, when I'm feeling up, or when I'm feeling sick, but it's always great to have on as a soundtrack to whatever else I might be doing - it's like hanging out with a big group of friends all the time!
#5: Castle! This is something I've only recently started bingeing in large quantities - to be specific,I put on a Castle DVD every night before I fall asleep, and have been doing so for maybe 2 weeks straight. The early seasons are what I enjoy most - anything after the 7th, where things start to get even more depressing for "Casket" as obstacles continue to be thrown in their path, and I tend to stop watching. Even getting the chance to stare at the beautiful Nathan Fillion's face isn't quite worth it.
