Binge worthy TV – The ultimate list

This post has been a long time in the making.  In fact, if you add up the hours spent ‘researching’ this post then I reckon it would be pretty terrifying just how much time has been spent in front of that black box over the past years…  (ok, it’s no black box – we upgraded to a Samsung Frame a year or so ago and it is money I have never regretted spending).

Honestly I do not have as much time now for tv as days gone by but that wee hour at the end of the night, when the tinies are tucked up in bed, my pj’s are on, the cup of tea is in my hand and I can get lost in an episode of something wonderful, well, that wee hour is just delicious.

So here we have it – the ultimate list of binge worthy tv.  I have broken it down into a few basic categories and I will let you take it from there (scroll down to the end of the post so you don’t miss any).  These are all shows I have enjoyed for different reasons but I urge you to watch a trailer before diving in.  Small caveat, I am not a fan of anything set in the past nor zombies nor sci-fi nor anything that might give me nightmares and generally prefer US made shows but of course there are exceptions to every rule (Peaky Blinders I’m looking at you).

If you think I missed any must sees drop me a comment at the end and I promise to check them out.  Go forth and binge…
