Best Shows/Movies to Binge Watch

With all of us asked distance ourselves from society I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my our favourite shows, mostly on Netflix but a few others too.

We watch an embarrasing amount of TV so we had a hard time narrowing it down. I tried to include some I didn’t think many people had heard of. In my defense i’m typically multi-task and am doing something else at the same time a watching my shows. My taste is also all over the place so you may not like everything I recommend.

I’m going to split these up into 2 categories 1 you’ll probably end up watching alone (cough trashy, addictive drama / basically I still have the tv taste of a teenage girl) and 1 for the shows Kyle binges with me!

OK so I asked Kyle to review my joint list and he insisted I add the shows he loves that I don’t watch… so we have 3 categories and his is just a listings and the netflix description because I don’t know what most of them are about but he typically likes fighting, blood, sifi, empires and war lol

Lindz Recommendations

Spinning Out – Netflix/TV Series (1 season)
A tv drama about figure skating? Yes and its amazing! Its got a mix of family drama, mental illness and romance all wrapped into one.

Sex Education – Netflix/TV Series (1 Season)
Totally awkward and funny all wrapped into one. This show has you cringing at every episode but falling for every characters charm at the same time.

Cheer – Netflix/Tv Series (1 Season)
Who knew cheerleading could be so hard! This documentary follows the top cheerleading team in the nation as they fight to be number 1 for yet another year in a row.

Dynasty – Netflix/TV Series (2 Seasons)
Meet the most f*cked up family with too much money. If you like drama with backstabbing mixed with murder and mystery this ones for you. Kyle watched it with me but wasn’t his fav.

Miss Americana – Netflix Special
This shows the behind the scenes of Taylor Swifts life and struggles through her entire road to fame. I actually really liked it but if you don’t like swifty you probably won’t.

To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before – Movie/Netflix (2 movies)
Imagine all the thoughts you’ve ever had about your past crushes were written down… and then mailed to all of them! Well that’s just what happens in this adorable movie where we get to see the after math play out. They all just released a sequel To All the Boys 2: PS I still Love You.

The Kissing Booth – Movie/Netflix (2 movies)
This movie is a total cliche about a highschool girl falling for her guy best friends older brother…but IT WAS SO GOOD! I also just found out there is a 2nd one which you bet i’m going to be watching.

Love is Blind – Netflix/TV Series (1 Season)
Its the worst and best social experiment all wrapped into one that kept me asking who would sign up for this the whole time. Basically imagine the bachelor and 30 day fiance blindfolded and you get this accident that you just can’t look away from.

Nashville – Netflix/TV Series (6 seasons)
If you like country music, drama and heartbreak then this is the show for you!

Siesta Keys – MTV/TV Series (3 Seasons)
You can stream on MTV’s website if you can put up with annoying commercials
If you watched Laguna Beach and enjoy twisted love triangles and other peoples drama this guilty pleasure series is for you!

Teen Mom OG – MTV/TV Series (a million seasons)
OK this one is a total guilt pleasure but I’ve been invested since 16 and pregnant and I just have an emotional attachment now! Sometimes watching other peoples drama just makes me feel better k? If you have never watched the series you have lots to binge watch as you see these ladies get knocked up at 16 and struggle with being young moms.

Very Cavallari – E (3 Seasons)
If you were a fan of Laguna Beach you will love this one! It follows Kristen Cavallari who is all grown up, married up and has started her own company in Nashville. Its not on netflix so you’ll have to try and find it.

Younger – TV Series (6 seasons)
This is one of my favourite shows but it’s not on netflix but if you can find it it’s SOO good! Its about a 40 year old single mom who is trying to get back into the work force after her daughter heads off to college but no one will hire a 40 year old so she pretends to be a millennial. It has Hillary Duff in it and its hilarious.

OUr Recommendations

Unbelievable – Netflix/Documentary series
This one we finished in one weekend! I am absolutely disgusted that this is based on a true story, but it is. Marie Adler reports that she has been raped, and is basically told she is imagining it. Unbelievable follows the aftermath of Adler’s rape and the two female detectives who years later team up to uncover a series of disturbingly similar crimes.

Molly’s Game – Netflix/Movie
Ever wonder what happens at those high stakes poker games you hear about, and what are the stakes for running them. Learn all about Molly and her poker game that nearly brought her down. Based on a true story!

Mindhunter – Netflix/TV Series (1 Season)
This one is one of my favourites! The second season has been released however we’ve been watching it since season 1 and I would say season 1 was the best. It tells the origin story of the FBI’s Behavioural Science Unit and its study of serial killers so if you like any crime shows or physiological shows this one is for you!

Chef’s Table – Netflix/Docuseries (6 volumes)
If you haven’t watched this yet, go do it now! But make sure you aren’t hungry and have your notebook ready to start making your food bucket list!

You – Netflix/TV Series (2 Season)
This one has 2 seasons and is all about a guys/stalkers obsession with the women he loves and the lengths he will go to keep them all to himself. If you liked Dexter you will love this.

Kevin Heart – DOn’t F*ck This Up – Netflix Special
Kevin is hilarious and this one kept us laughing the whole time!

Dirty John – Netflix/ Series (1 Season)
What if the love of your life isn’t who you thought he was? This true story makes you scream at the TV at how dumb she can be! There is also a documentary about this that you can watch!

Glitch – Netflix/TV Series (3 Seasons)
Imagine your wife dies, you move on and then all of a sudden your dead wife comes back to life… ya things get a little weird. Oh ya and 6 other residents in the small Town you are a police officer in also come back to life. How are they back, and why?

The Crown – Netflix/TV Series (3 Seasons)
Never did I think I would find the British Empire so interesting but after boycotting this one for an entire series I ended up binge watching season 1 and 2 in a matter of days. I was really worried I was going to hate season 3 because the actors changed and I had come to love them so much but it too was sooo good!

Ozark – Netflix/TV Series (2 Seasons, 3rd launched March 27th)
If you have been living under a rock and have yet to watch this you have 2 weeks to catch up before season 3 launches. The series follows a family trying to escape their drug money laundering life when they move to the Ozarks only to just end up getting in deeper than they could have imagined.

Blood and Oil – TV Series (1 Season)
This one isn’t on netflix but I wish it was because then maybe they would bring it back! Its an ABC drama about a family who is rich by oil and a couple dark secrets along the way! This is one of our favorite shows and we were so sad it got cancelled!

Yellowstone – TV Series (2 seasons)
This one is kinda similar to Blood and oil but not as good. Its about a family, their ranch and the lengths they will go to protect it. This one is also not on netflix but worth finding if you can.

I started watching this one with Kyle but he got to far ahead and I wasn’t interested enough to catch up.
