The following shows, in my opinion, are the top 10 binge-worthy shows that if you haven’t already watched- you should be. They are in no particular order and this in no way is a ranked list. With that being said, I will admit that my personal favorite is number one. So grab a bag of popcorn, your remote, and start watching now.
Number 10. Shameless (U.S. Version)
This Showtime original follows the very dysfunctional Gallagher family, as Fiona, the oldest sibling takes care of her three little brothers, her sister, her alcoholic father and bi-polar mother. Living in South Side chicago, Fiona with the help of her neighbors, always figures things out when money is tight. This comical drama has 7 seasons ready for you to binge on Netflix. Enjoy.
Number 9. The Newsroom

With only three seasons, this HBO original is a must watch. It is about how a newsroom, lead by Will McAvoy as anchor, challenges the network he works for by starting to actually give people the news. It also covers real life stories like the BP oil spill. Brilliantly written.
Number 8. The Office (U.S. Version)

A series done in a documentary style format tells the story of Manager, Michael Scott, and his employees at a Scranton based paper firm. A comedy that shows everything your NOT supposed to do in the workplace, but makes for a great laugh.

Olivia Pope and her team of “gladiators in suits” makes the problems of the elite in Washington D.C. disappear. Creator, Shonda Rhimes names this drama-based series perfectly, as shows it scandal after scandal- some her clients and some of her own.

Hannah Baker, a girl who commits suicide, leaves 13 tapes for each person that has bullied her. This Netflix original directed by Selena Gomez, is based off the novel written by xxx. An interesting, but tragic story. There’s currently only one season available on Netflix.
Number 2. Breaking Bad
A chemist teacher, Walter (Walt) White, starts cooking and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jimmy, so he can pay for cancer treatment. As expected things get a little out of hand, to say the least. All seasons available on Netflix.
Number 1. Grey’s Anatomy

Watch Meredith and Christina as the “twisted sisters,” and fall in love with McDreamy like all watchers do. Your heart will be broken and put back together again. There’s 13 seasons with over 200 episodes on Netflix. The 14th season is set to premiere on ABC, September 28, 2017.
