My TV Picks

OK so a lot of my friends are always looking for a new show to watch on Netflix, and they usually come to me, because, well, they know how much I like my TV.  If any of you are in this predicament, this list will hopefully help you choose your next binge!

(The following is in no particular order)

  1. ONE TREE HILL – Okay I lied, this one is in a particular order because this is my favorite show of all time.  Seriously, if you haven’t watched this yet then do yourself a favor and OPEN A NEW TAB to start this masterpiece of a television series.  Although it starts off a little slow (for some, not me of course), the series picks up and gets better and better with every season.  Brooke Davis is basically my hero, and if you start this show right now, she will be yours too.  10/10
  2. FRIENDS – This is a classic series, and you have all probably seen reruns on TV because they are seriously ALWAYS on, but I highly recommend starting the series over from the beginning.  It is a witty and hilarious show, with characters so relatable it’ll have you identifying as Rachel Green in no time.  Although there are some characters that are sometimes so annoying you’ll want to cry, like in any show, the good moments FAR outweigh the obnoxious ones.  Phoebe and Ross are two characters who I sometimes CANNOT STAND, while other times I am peeing my pants laughing because of them (“MY SANDWICH”).  If they annoy you too, just give it/them a chance.  9.5/10
  3. THE OFFICE – Another obvious choice if you are a fan of sarcasm, this is one of the smartest and funniest shows that has ever been created.  Honestly.  Michael Scott WILL drive you crazy as much as he will make you laugh.  Pam and Jim WILL make you cry and wonder why your boyfriend is not like Jim. (Sorry, spoiler but c’mon we all see it coming even if we don’t know).  If you do not think this show is “your type”  (which, yes, I will admit I did say…) then you are wrong because it is everyone’s type and watching it was one of the BEST decisions of my life (a little dramatic, but accurate). 10/10
  4. REVENGE – This is a show that is juicy, a little messed up, and will make you want to live in the Hamptons.  Although it lost my interest for a little bit, it still gets a spot on My TV Picks because the parts that didn’t lose my interest were VERY entertaining.  Also, there are too many amazing outfits in the show to not end up on this list.  7.5/10
  5. NEW GIRL – Just one of those fun shows that you watch if you have nothing to do and could use a laugh.  The characters in the show all work together to make it entertaining; even though the main character Jess gets on my nerves most of the time, the rest of the characters make up for her annoyingness and are present enough so that it is not a problem. Not a serious one, but, sometimes those are the ones you need to binge.  And at 22 minutes a piece, it is VERY easy to watch the entire series in a short period of time.  8/10
  6. HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER – Another one of the EASIEST shows to binge watch on Netflix.  The characters are hilarious.  The episodes are ridiculous.  And even though Ted Mosby can get a little whiney at times, anything with Neil Patrick Harris is worth watching.  This is one of those shows that is hilarious the first time through, but some of the episodes lose their appeal after the first viewing.  8.5/10
  7. CHICAGO FIRE/CHICAGO PD – These shows are NOT on Netflix, yet… I am hoping for everyone’s sake that they are added soon.  I watch them On Demand and have a series recording set up.  PD features the always amazing Sophia Bush, which is why I started watching these shows in the first place.  They are heartfelt and easy to keep up with.  I would HIGHLY recommend starting them both if you are into action, romance, comedy, and drama.  8.5/10
  8. SHAMELESS – Disgustingly hilarious.  Messed up.  Not a show to watch with your parents… The characters are all equally messed up and the amount of nudity is innumerable.  However, the show is ADDICTING.  If you are looking for something provocative and rule-breaking — this is it.  The more you watch this show the more you will realize how normal your life is.  Very entertaining.  Very deranged.  Sometimes you will have to look away.  9/10

If you start any of these PLEASE let me know your thoughts… Or if you have any suggestions I am always looking for a new show 😉
