I really need to watch more TV shows! In the past, I didn’t watch TV that much, but when I went to uni and lived alone, being able to watch whatever I want meant I started watching more TV. This list is a mixture of shows I loved and shows that were strangely addictive even though they were fairly average.
Once Upon a Time – This show peaked in the middle, with series 3 my favourite, but still very bingeworthy.
13 Reasons Why – This is the most addictive show on this list. There were things I didn’t like about the show, lots of things I did. Somehow it just pulled me in and I had to watch the next episode.
Arrow – The first season I found a bit slow and repetitive, but season 2 was a big improvement and I binged that. Still need to watch the rest of the seasons, hopefully it carries on being good.
Downton Abbey – I didn’t watch this when it was originally aired in the UK, but got the box set a couple of years ago when I realised I really did have a soft spot for period dramas. I didn’t take me long to get through all the seasons.
Reign – The topic was which are bingeworthy, not what the best shows are. I sure binged this show, even though it really was awful at times. Season 2 was particularly cringeworthy, from what I remember.
The Expanse – The second series of this in particular was really addictive, but I haven’t yet had an opportunity to watch series three. I was really disappointed when it was cancelled so am very much relieved it was picked up and it looks like there will be a season four.
The Musketeers – What’s not to like? All three series of this show are brilliant and I was sad when it came to an end. At least it makes great re-watching material!
Frequency – It became a bit repetitive, but I still kept wanting to come back and see the mystery solved. Every episode seemed to end with a massive cliff-hanger.
Jessica Jones – This applies to the first series more than the second, which although I liked, didn’t have the same intensity and drive as the first series. David Tennant made a brilliant villain in season one and is part of what made it such a bingeworthy programme.
Poldark – Do I need to say anything? As much as the relationships are a big part of this show, I also like how it explores rural Cornwall life and the disparity between rich and poor.
