Stay in and cosy up! 13 TV shows to BINGE watch this weekend

We have to admit, we're binge watchers here in SHEmazing! HQ.

We love nothing more that cuddling up on the sofa with a cuppa tea (or glass of wine), and letting our minds wander into the lives of the characters we're seeing on screen.

So, whether you love a good drama about bitchy Upper East Siders, or fancy a thriller about a hchirpy serial killer, there's going to be something in this list for you.

Here are 13 TV shows that have a hella loada seasons, so you can binge watch to your heart's content this weekend:

1. 24

Jack Bauer, the Director of Field Ops for the Counter-Terrorist Unit in LA, races against the clock to stop terrorist plots and save his nation (and family) from disaster.

This TV show is literally thrill, after thrill, after thrill.


2. Entourage

This is actually based on the life of Mark Wahlberg when he first moved to LA. Film star, Vince Chase, has to navigate his way through Hollywood along with the help of his friends.

There's plenty of ups and downs, along with a lot of laughs. And Ari Gold is THE MAN.


3. The Walking Dead

Former sheriff, Rick Grimes, wakes up from a coma to a world full of zombies (they call them walkers in the show).

He ends up leading a group of survivors to safety, but nothing will ever be as safe as it seems. And sometimes, humans are worse than the walkers…


4. Gossip Girl

Ah, Gossip Girl. The show depicts the lives of a group of privileged Upper East Side teenagers.

Between its many scandals, affairs, deaths and robberies, all is chronicled by a blogger, who sends out texts and emails, spilling the dirty deets of the lives of Serena, Blair, Chuck, Nate and Dan.


5. Prison Break

Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man, named Michael, is sent to prison, where he will ultimately end up on death row.

His only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to get himself sent to the same prison in order to break them both out, from the inside.


6. Desperate Housewives

This is the story of a group of women living in a suburban neighbourhood.

After the mysterious suicide of a neighbour, the women must all come together and protect each other from their secrets getting out. And believe us, they have a lot of secrets.


7. The Wire

The Wire depicts the Baltimore drug scene. In the show, we get to see both sides; the lives of the drug dealers and the lives of the police officers.

Throughout the seasons, both sides make startling revelations, where they have to choose whether to clean up the messes… or hide them.


8. Breaking Bad

Possibly one of the best TV shows of our time, amirite? A high school chemistry teacher is diagnosed with lung cancer, but he makes a surprising turn into the world of manufacturing and selling meth.

And then there's Jesse, who you will no doubt fall in love with.


9. Better Call Saul

If you're having withdrawal symptoms after finishing Breaking Bad, then Saul Goodman is your man.

Even though Saul was the comic relief in Breaking Bad, his own TV show is quite dark. It tells the story of a young lawyer and his trials and tribulations of trying to get into criminal law.


10. Freaks and Geeks

Even though this only has one season, it's well worth a watch. A high school math geek starts hanging out with a group of stoners, and realises that life isn't all about studying.

Meanwhile, her younger brother has to navigate life as a freshman and face up to his bullies. 


11. One Tree Hill

If Chad Michael Murray and James Lafferty aren't enough reason to watch this then we don't know what else to tell you.

One Tree Hill tells the story of half-brothers Lucas and Nathan. They trade between kinship and rivalry, both on the basketball court and in the hearts of their friends in the small, but not so quiet town of Tree Hill. 


12. Dexter

Dexter is an odd but lovely forensic expert who works with the Miami Police Department.

However, he's also a serial killer who hunts down bad guys in order to make the world a safer place (in his eyes). He must trick and deceive the ones closest to him, which makes for great watching.


13. The OC

Again if Adam Brody and Ben McKenzie aren't enough to make you watch this… well, you know the gist. The OC sees a troubled youth taken in by a wealthy family.

The community where they live is very close knit and well-behaved, until Ryan shakes everything up. The soundtrack is also class.
