Binge Watching Shows on Netflix is AWESOME!

As a freelance writer, I love Netflix. I don’t always watch what’s on TV, but having the television going in the background helps me stay in the zone and focused on being creative. The best way I’ve found to do this is to watch series on Netflix. Like many other Netflix junkies, I love to binge watch shows. In fact, I’ve been known to watch entire series in just a few days. To help others that love to watch Netflix, but aren’t sure what to watch next find their next favorite show, I have created a list of six shows to watch on Netflix.

1. Sons of Anarchy

Okay, I have to admit, I love Sons of Anarchy! I’m not a biker, I don’t like violence, and I didn’t know who Kurt Sutter or Charlie Hunnam was before watching this show, but I can tell you it’s a must see! Kurt Sutter created and starred in this now ended FX drama and Charlie Hunnam plays the gorgeous, but disturbed protagonist, Jax Teller.

The series follows the lives of those involved in the day to day activities of SAMCRO, a biker gang located in the fictional Charming, California. In total, there were seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy. The final episode aired December 9, 2014. Currently, all seven episodes are offered on DVD and can be viewed on Netflix.

2. Bones

I love Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and her husband/partner Seeley Booth. Booth and Bones complement each other perfectly and entertain viewers with their ability to solve crimes in unusual manners. Bones began airing in 2005, which means there are tons of episodes on Netflix. Despite the fact that I had seen many of these episodes on TV when they originally aired, I still love watching them again on Netflix. In fact, Bones is my go-to show to watch on Netflix whenever I can’t find anything else to watch.

As of October 2015, you can now watch 10 seasons of Bones on Netflix. I've seen every episode over the last 10 years and can't wait for more.

Being Human

I stumbled across Being Human by accident. You know how Netflix recommends shows based on your previous viewing history…well this is how I learned of Being Human. When I first read the meta description, I rolled my eyes. Seriously, another show about vampires and werewolves! However, I’m glad I clicked play because I quickly fell in love with three unusual roommates and the trials and tribulations they faced. While I truly loved every minute of this series, I was surprised to find out it ended after just four seasons. It seems that the network could have done a ton more with a ghost, werewolves, and vampire roommates, but decided to end it earlier than expected.

The 100

The 100 is another series that I’m glad I gave a chance. My sister who loves sci-fi dramas recommended I watch it on Netflix, and I’m glad she did. The show is set in a futuristic Earth and stars a group of young adults trying to figure out how to survive and co-exist. If you like movies like Hunger Games, you will certainly love The 100 on Netflix.

As of November 1, 2015, the 2nd season of The 100 is on Netflix. I've already burned through the episodes and I'm eager to see the third season next.

A Sneak Peek at The 100


While the shows I have mentioned above are dramas, my favorite type of shows on Netflix are comedies, and Psych starring James Roday, and Dule Hill is my absolute favorite. Psych began airing in 2006 and aired its final episode, after eight seasons, in the Spring of 2014. In this comedy, Shawn (James Roday) is a pretend, but really real, detective that many believe has a supernatural gift. The only person that knows Shawn isn’t psychic is his best friend, Gus (Dule Hill) and Shawn’s father, Henry (Corbin Bernsen). During eight seasons of this lovable comedy, Shawn and Gus solve crimes and keep audiences in stitches. If you love Psych and want to rewatch it, you will love the fact that the entire series is on Netflix. If you have never watched Psych and are looking for a series that will keep you busy for weeks, Psych is perfect. (Don’t forget to look for the hidden Pineapple in every episode.)

Criminal Minds

I watch Criminal Minds at least a few times a week! The show is still running current episodes and reruns, but I love to watch it from the very beginning. Just a few weeks ago, I started on Season 1 (originally aired 2005) and watched all the way up to season 9. I love watching the team grow together and become closer as the years go by. If you aren’t sure whether Criminal Minds makes the cut or not, just watch it to see Shemar Moore.
