Ray Donovan if you missed it the first time around.

Sugar said...

Pretty Little Liars. I'm on a bender with that one now.

Bennett said...

Breaking Bad & The Walking Dead. The Mindy Project. Felicity.

WareCat said...

The 700 Club.

Sugar said...

But I also keep hearing great stuff about The Wire. I may binge on that after PLL.

Angela said...

Orphan Black. BBC America & Netflix.

Renoblondee said...

The Tudors of course!

Stephie said...

Breaking Bad
Bates Motel

Simon said...

The French (subtitles) show The Returned. Airs on showtime but think it must be available through amazon, hulu or netflix. Love this show!

kriss_t said...

Ex-Wives of Rock repeats...or is that just me that loves that show? ;)

VIPblonde said...

90210

Six Feet Under
Raising Hope

Does anyone marathon a show that's not finished? I did Grey's Anatomy and now I have to wait for new episodes and I'm bored.

Jessi said...

Orphan Black or Vampire Diaries (Its so freakin stupid and my guilty pleasure of dumb drama!) You will never believe how many deaths one can withstand!!

NomNom83 said...

The Golden Girls

Tori Vasquez said...

Friends, Gilmore Girls, Will and Grace, SATC.

GatorGirl said...

The original one, though

GatorGirl said...

The Originals

Seven of Eleven said...

Never ye mind, I can see from the answers (Orphan Black, Vampire Diaries) that some do! :) I'm impatient, I know.

mngddess said...

I just binged watched The Tudors. I feel as if I've been hanged and had my head severed several times..

Also, I'm going to binge watch House of Cards again. Spacey!!!

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@VIP more like 9021-no! Amirite? Just kidding. So pumped for the new season.

Gayeld said...

Once Upon A Time (but not the awful Wonderland version)
Supernatural

LottaColada said...

@NYer- House of Cards! How could I forget that one.

Maggie said...

Spartacus, suits, graceland

FlirtyChick74 said...

+1 @ Simon. I was just coming in here to say that. Loved it too. I heard that season 2 is or has been filmed. Can't wait.

Amartel said...

Justified
Totally underappreciated show.

snookiemonster said...

Arrested Development

TrapperKeeper said...

Parks & Rec
Louie
Freaks & Geeks
Undeclared (I just binge watched this, and really enjoyed it. I tried to get into it about 8 yrs ago and couldn't. Tons of people you'll recognize--I forgot Charlie Hunnam was in it! And a great soundtrack.)

Cocoa said...

Yes! Do watch The Wire. You might need subtitles sometimes and it is violent but so very, very good. Watch the Goats movie when this series gets too intense.

TrapperKeeper said...

RAISING HOPE for sure!

FlirtyChick74 said...

MI5
Continuum
The Fall
Luther
House of Cards
Battlestar Gallactica

Sherlock

lazyday603 said...

Community - Don't skip the DVD extras.

T. E. Cuz said...

portlandia

__-__=__ said...

The Wire - recently finished that one. Too real scenery in and around Baltimore. Societal decay story. Timeless.

Six Feet Under - psycho drama/comedy. Something like psychopath hooks up with malignant narcissist who has a bi-polar brother. More comedy than actual human destruction.

Watching Breaking Bad now. Heisenberg!!!!! First 2 seasons were great comedy. More drama to season 3. Comedy ensues towards the end of season 4, thank goodness.

I'm only watching finished series. Sopranos, Weeds, Carnivale, Dexter, Nip/Tuck. Comeback

Tara said...

Did nobody suggest Game of Thrones?? I suggest Enlightened and The Comeback too.

Merlin D. Bear said...

House of Cards
Scandal
Nip/Tuck
Drop Dead Diva
Gone With The Wind (at 6+ hours, it's a binge)
Dexter
Dr Who (the reboot)
Dr Who (the originals)

Snapdragon said...

Already mentioned above by @flirtychick74, but, any Investigation Discovery show. Disappeared, the one about the evil couples... I have spent many an afternoon letting one episode roll into the next on Netflix. The intro with that whispery "Investigate..." gives me the shudders just to think about!

Thanks, y'all for the other suggestions.

Anna Olivares said...

Sons of Anarchy
Breaking Bad
Ray Donovan
Shamele

Anna Olivares said...

*Shameless

AndrewBW said...

Foyle's War

Greengrl said...

Community, #sixseasonsandamovie
Orphan Black
The Americans
Tudors
Mad Men
Weeds
Breaking Bad
How I Met Your Mother

chica von borealis said...

I am in the midst of an Arrested Development binge right now. I highly recommend it. Others I have binged on with great success: Dr Who, Game of Thrones, The Mentalist, House of Lies, Scandal, Green Wing, Firefly, Graceland. To name a few.

Take it from a binge pro: watch something that has ended. Otherwise you'll eventually catch up with the TV, and having to wait an entire week for the next episode is true torture when you've just watched three seasons in a row.

N. Twinkie said...

Top of the Lake, Vikings, Breaking Bad of course, if you're the only one who didn't see it.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Shameless is the new Six Feet Under.

30 Rock.

Nip/Tuck because Kelly Carlson!!

Or go 90's and get the Sports Night or Spin City DVD's. Just skip the awful, unwatchable Charlie Sheen seasons. They DO NOT EXIST in my universe!!

M. Brown said...

Scandal
Downton Abby
The Originals
Drop a Dead Diva
Once Upon A Time
Revenge
Parenthood (although if you're not watching regularly it probably isn't for you)
Veep

M. Brown said...

*Drop Dead Diva*. What I wrote sounds like a totally different show.

hairydawg said...

Strangers With Candy
Party Down
Head Case

nancer said...

'THE WIRE.'

should be required viewing, actually.

Poni-Tayl said...

The Following: Kevin Bacon

Snootches said...

The White Queen
Scandal
Awkward
PLL
Shameless
Hung

anonymous bear said...

Oz

Sugar said...

Excellent advice Cocoa! I think we should have a viewing party for Goats! Let's make this a sleeper hit!

FlirtyChick74 said...

+1 @ Andrew. I enjoyed that show too. I didn't think I would but it was well done.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Nip/Tuck also featured quite a stunner I'm sure we're familiar with.

Monstersaw said...

Alot of the suggestions seem to be for serious drama so ill put

Parks and Recreation
Commnunity
Misfits

Even if you watched these already, just so many jokes and good comedy
great to work too as well

Glitter said...

+1 on Luther. The acting is superb. Also, the original House of Cards.

Lenore B said...

Breaking Bad

trogdor said...

Veep and Vikings. Vikings is crushing it - Its like one hour long History channel battle sequences but with much higher drama and Veep is just plain out f'n hilarious.

Runswithscissors said...

BLACKADDER!!!!

Lenore B said...

Guilty of My So Called Life

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

I just started Boardwalk Empire that show is freaking awesome, but I know you have already watched that.

My cousin said Rome is good.

Game of Thrones
Fargo-Billy Bob Thornton is great!
The Bridge was good
Masters of Sex is excellent(Allison Janney)
Scandal is amazing
Southern Charm surprisingly good (reality)


Violet said...

Summerheights High
The IT Crowd

You will all thank me FOREVER.

teresa crane said...

I've binge watched The Tudors several times over. I freaking LOVE that show.

Same goes for Six Feet Under. The last episode always has me bawling!!

The Fall
Top of the Lake
Hannibal
Veep
The Killing (I watched the first season in like, two days)
House of Cards
Nip/Tuck

gossipoholic said...

The Little Couple and Shameless!

califblondy said...

Will and Grace every Saturday on WE.

Kitten Caboodle said...

Episodes - Showtime / Netflix.

Sugar said...

oh yeah, I can't believe i forgot to mention Million Dollar Listing NY?!?!?!? I could watch those guys out douche each other for hours. Which I did last weekend. It was awesome. Fredrik is a star!

GAME OF THRONES

Katie Telling said...

Trailer park boys!!!!

Cocoa said...

I'm in. Goats for weekend viewing. Popcorn and alcohol optional. If I can find that epic film on Netflix...

Ray Nicolet said...

I refuse to acknowledge that mistake.

Topper Madison said...

Downton Abbey (It's better when binged. You pick up more plot-point nuances.)

Northern Exposure--My go-to when I'm feeling blue.

fancyscreenname said...

@sugar

+1

fancyscreenname said...

six feet under is also a good binger...

Flanorama said...

Sons of Anarchy and Shameless

Shocky said...

Pretty Little Liars or The Inbetweeners

WareCat said...

lately I've been watching The Family Fued w/ Steve Harvey.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I second, or third, Mad Men.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Recently I've enjoyed binging on
Frasier
Chrisleys
Sex in the City
Four Weddings
Rich Kids Beverly Hills
Flipping Out
I need to do THE SOPRANOS- I've never seen it before. Lol. Only saw 2 Breaking Bads. Argh- I have work to do. The Sons of Ana

RowdyRodimus said...

Night Court- watch the subtle nuances of growth Dan Fielding does as the series progresses and also watch as Markie Post goes from cute to "Oh my God I want to hit that so bad" (Maybe that was because I started puberty during the later seasons)

fancyscreenname said...

@rowdy

Lol...loved night court...

Tillie said...

Same here! Love this series!

Elizabeth Rowell said...

Chrisley Knows Best
Fucking hilarious!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I'll once again recommend Spin City if for no other reason than to see what Jennifer Garner, Stephen Colbert, Alyssa Milano, Connie Britton and Justin Theroux looked like 16 years ago.

Frufra said...

Bob's Burgers!! Can't believe no one mentioned it. It's beyond hilarious!

Jessi said...

Haha! I would totally watch Drop a Dead Diva!!

auntliddy said...

Breaking bad. The Americans isn't bad either, but no show has quality of breaking bad. Kind of ruins every other show now.

Bally said...

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia is good. I just started watching it recently, and it's really funny. Especially the episodes with Danny DeVito in them.

BeckyMae said...

Puberty Blues....this was a famous Aussie movie set in 1970's Sydney remade into a fantastic, high quality TV show. The first season stays true to the book and the second is a continuation of what might have been. It's a great snap shot of life then with a teen storyline alongside adult ines. It's styled brilliantly, the costumes and sets are spot in for that 1979-1981 feel. Much binge drinking and bong smoking too, lol

Erik said...

Breaking Bad is made for binge watching. The Sopranos and The Wire, of course. Game of Thrones. The Americans is a great show, but only in the second season, so if you did binge, it would be over quickly.

Guilty pleasure: Dallas (the original series).

One to avoid: Mad Men. I can handle one episode at a time, max.

Jennmcn said...

Green Wing - It's British, only 2 seasons, one of the funniest weird shows, evah! It's on Netflix.

Vikings

Rome and Deadwood are always a good bet.

Blacks Books if you can find it.

Waiting for God is one of my favorites.

court court said...

Orange is the new black. Watched it all last night

PJ said...

The Killing! Although, be warned: the second season drags significantly more than the first. Oh, or GOT of course although I pretty much assume-incorrectly-that everyone has already seen it at this point :)

MollyMo said...

+1

MollyMo said...

+1 Excellent show

Jennifer said...

+1!

MollyMo said...

Loved The Killing! Looking forward to the last season on Netflix.

MollyMo said...

Best show ever.

MollyMo said...

Agreed, brilliant characters

MollyMo said...

Love these shows. I could watch SATC on repeat forever. It never, ever gets old to me.

MollyMo said...

I love Strangers With Candy- freaking hysterical!

Jennifer said...

Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
The Office-BBC version
The Returned
Breaking Bad
Six Feet Under
Boardwalk Empire
Downton Abbey
True Blood ( first few seasons)
Orange is the New Black
And I want to start House of Cards, The Wire and Battlestar Galactica

MollyMo said...

From what I've seen of Raising Hope, it is extremely funny!

MollyMo said...

I've heard great things!

MollyMo said...

Shows I loved to binge watch:

Sex and The City
LOST
The Bridge
Homeland
Dexter
Breaking Bad
The Walking Dead
Freaks and Geeks
Arrested Development
True Blood (Seasons 1-2)
Strangers With Candy
Moonlighting (So good if you've never seen it I highly recommend it)

NaughtyNurse said...

Freaks and Geeks, Breaking Bad, Prison Break, 24, It's Alway Sunny in Philadelphia, The League

anon said...

Rescue Me - Denis Leary series about NYC firefighters post-9/11. How can you not love a series that has a black, gay, horse whispering little person and Jesus driving a yellow Lamborghini with a bumper sticker that says "Now you know what I drive".

Agree w/The Vikings suggestion - second season finale aired last night - this series has turned into one of my favs - they really killed it.

Here's something to drool over - Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrook) when he was a Calvin Klein model:

Erik said...

Man, how could I have forgotten 24, probably my favorite show of all time. Can't wait for Monday!

kj said...

House of Cards. the Wire. You won't have time to watch anything else for awhile. If you are ambitious watch the BBC house of cards from about 30 years ago. The KILLING from AMC. under promoted, lost and found by network and netflix. but wonderfully acted.

Meauxelle said...

I love some Discovery ID! An episode of Sins and Secrets, "A Hunting In Boone", was about a murder that happened in the college town I was living in. I can also lose hours and hours thinking "just one more"....

Meauxelle said...

I thought Chrisley Knows Best would be awful, but I was utterly charmed by Todd!

Meauxelle said...

I LOVED Rescue Me, but didn't watch the last 3 episodes for 2 years because I didn't want it to be over, and because I was given an incorrect spoiler. I know I'll watch the whole thing again at some point.

Meauxelle said...

I've been binging on Dexter, but am stuck in season 7 waiting for my viewing buddy to catch up. I'm also binging hard on Deadliest Catch. A little hotness and testosterone on the Bering Sea, yum!

Next will be Breaking Bad and the Sopranos. I'd forgotten about Six Feet Under, so now I'll have an excuse to spend more time with Michael C Hall

Does anyone else have Amazon Prime? I found out that there are some almost-forgotten gems stashed out there. "Hey, Paula" anyone? They aren't free, but a season costs about $15.

Love banshee
Hemlock Grove cheesy but cute

I have Arli $$. On did collection I still have to watch it. My favorite show from the 90s.

Trashaddict said...

Lots of BBC. Torchwood. State of Play (much better developed characters than the movie), Above Suspicion (Ciaran Hinds and Kelly Reilly), Whitechapel (wonderful Rupert Penry Jones), Ashes to Ashes. I also binge on Tales of the ER (where else would you hear about a bullet embolus?!).

Therese said...

Ripper Street, with Matthew Macfayden and Jerome Flynn. If you haven't, lucky dog, you can watch season one and season two. Wish I could start it all over again. Excellent. So well written. Some of it hard to watch for me, but watch I do. Just finished Season Two. Luther, on Netflix. Vikings on the History Channel, season one and two. Watch Jekyll on Netflix. A little scary, but SOOOOOO good. I am next going to catch up with Turn on AMC. That should keep you going for a while. I think I may be an inadvertent Irish Anglophile. Such good writing and acting. But anyway, start with Ripper Street. Please let us know what you decided to watch and how you liked it. Just interested.

Psych!!! I've been trying to get you to watch it for years! :)

mooshki said...

Ooh, or Life. Really great show, and your BFF Donal Logue is in the second season.

Jerry said...

If you liked The Sopranos, try Lilyhammer on Netflix. Stars Steven van Zandt as a mobster {same hairpiece as Sopranos} in witness protection in Lillyhamer, Norway. First two seasons are 7 or 8 episodes each.

Hegg said...

Peaky Blinders.
Kenny Vs. Spenny

Bikey said...

Since virtually every one has already seen Breaking Bad, I´d go for the awesomeness that is Justified.
And I´d top it all with some Flight of the Conchords and I´m Alan Partridge.
Happy binge watching anyway:)!

cheesey.burrito.whore said...

Green Wing is some DANG FUNNY STUFF. When I grow up I ASPIRE to be Sue White...also noteworthy, and all British...Life on Mars, Shameless (the UK version), Wire in the Blood, Black Books, Spaced, Hyperdrive...

Plum Grey said...

Suits! Yes!

Plum Grey said...

Suits! Yes!

shakey said...

Haven't read all the comments (since I'm late to the party). This is what I binge watch:

1. SOA
2. The Killing (if you can handle weather/lighting worthy of Sylvia Plath)
3. Just started on Justified. Liked the 1st episode.

Also try Hell on Wheels. It's a good show. I drool for Common.
