Best TV Shows to Sinfully Binge Watch
Breaking Bad is Where It Started For Many
I was already addicted to Binge Watching when Jessie and His Science Teacher Broke Bad
The new rage, and it's been this way for awhile, is to binge watch television shows on venues like Netflix and Amazon Prime. I think my first honest to goodness 'full watch' was 'LOST' which was a really nice treat. I'd always been interested in the series, however I had never the time to watch the show every week. 'Lost' wasn't something one could miss and then get right back into it. To be quite honest, I still struggle with the meaning of 'Lost' and what it all stood for, but I appreciated the symbolism of the what's now become 'Cult Classic.' I also appreciate.. or maybe I am a bit angry over all of the time lost... (narrrhhh) the various television shows that I've been privvy to binge-watch over the years. Oh, how I've enjoyed so many bad and good story lines, so many evil and inherently good characters and the relationships they form. I have compiled a list of extremely enjoyable shows which I found binge-watch-worthy. I hope you enjoy them too!

45. Girls (by HBO)
46. The Good Wife
There are so many more, but the above list game me hours of fun an connected me to characters I am surely not to forget.
My kids tell me that binge watching is a sign of depression, but I seem to enjoy it... so whatever..LOL
Me in my standard jammies on the bed position, ready to binge watch- do I look depressed?
The Worst Thing I've Binged Watched (Guilty Pleasure)
Okay, so I had never heard of Jersey Short before but I found that a lot of my friends were using 'Jersey-Shore-isms' quite frequently and while I decided to watch only the first episode to see how extraordinarily stupid it was- I found myself watching ever season with disgust- but I couldn't look away from the game and their grotesque shenanigans. Well- at least I know what 'Gym Tan Laundry' mean.. And, what DTF is.... Yeahhh Buddy.
Crazy People- Wow!

My Most Favourite Binge Watches- Brothers and Sisters and LOST
Sally Fields is Almost Perfect, LOST is Truly Art
Brothers and Sisters is the story of a family who centers around their Matriarch, Sally Field, after the untimely death of their father. Five children and their various partners, spouses and drama grace us on screen- and we love each of them in our own way. The wine flows freely, real issues are discussed, the acting is superb, and I am only sorry it cancelled after only four seasons. I loved every moment of Brothers and Sisters.
LOST is a work of Art, and although I have to say I really didn't 'get' a lot of the symbolism, I hung on for dear life to see what would happen next- and to figure out just where in the hell they were. There were so many questions and things that made no sense- but I let loose and enjoyed the ride- and I am glad I did!

I have been binge watching tv so long that I've forgotten which shows I have and have not watched. If you can think of any, I will add them to my list. I love getting ideas from others!
