5 New TV Shows To Start Binge Watching

I’ve previously confessed my binge watching addiction, as well as a list of popular shows to binge watch. However this year has bought many new shows into the mix, including ones that I felt necessary to share my love for.

Because who needs fresh air and all that when there’s a new season waiting in your download folder? I mean, honestly.

Better Call Saul
If you’re a Breaking Bad fan, this show should already ring some bells. Confession: I haven’t actually watched it YET (planning an epic marathon this weekend – what life?) but it’s supposedly a worthy prequel to Breaking Bad, according to reviews.

Edit: can confirm – OBSESSED.

Empire
There’s been a lot of hype about this prime-time show, and it does not disappoint. You’ll be completely consumed with only one episode. According to this review, the glossy hip-hop drama has surpassed the hype to become a genuine TV event.

The Killing
After a little break, the killing came back in season 3 stronger than ever. It focuses on teenage runaways, prostitution and mass murder (creepy enough for you yet?). It’s brilliant, & you’ll probably end up watching the whole season in a day.

Mad Men
Okay so this isn’t really a ‘new’ show, but 2015 brings upon the final season of Mad Men (season 7). It’s said to go out with a bang, giving you the perfect opportunity to start binge watching if you haven’t already!

The Returned
A small town suddenly finds that a number of its deceased denizens have inexplicably returned to life as “revenants” simply wanting to reintegrate back into their lives. It’s incredibly compelling with skin-crawling elements and the first season is already on Netflix.

What shows have you started binge watching this year?

  • I have been wanting to start on Empire! Heard really great things about it – my friend seriously went binge watched for a couple of days. The Returned sounds good, will check it out. I have been watching Stalker but heard that it has been cancelled. So sad ):

  • I've heard so many great things about Empire and I think I need to start watching it. Currently I've been completely obsessing over The Royals. It's a shame the first season only had 10 episodes :/

  • Two of my faves, especially the killing!! x

  • I loooove Parks & Recreation. It's weird because I was never that into it up until this year. Amy Poehler is awesome! x

  • Haha I used to do that too! I tried watching Orange is the New Black for the first time on a flight, but the opening scene was too raunchy & drawing a lot of attention so I closed it! hahaha going to give it another go (at home) soon! LOL x

  • Oh me too! I've never seen Homeland, but heard great things about it! x

  • 2 broke girls is always a fave! I've not heard of Scorpion, have to add that one to the list x

  • The music is amaze! The show just gets more dramatic & more addictive. Love it! x

  • You might finish it in a few days haha!

    P.s good luck with exams! x

  • I miss breaking bad so much :( ahhh my bf is exactly the same, so behind in every show I can't be bothered waiting for him to catch up anymore so I just watch everything without him now hahah x

  • PLL is one of those shows you can just keep rewatching! so good (although I STILL haven't watched the last few eps!) x

  • I recommend the killing (esp if you liked the returned!) ENJOY! x

  • I hope you like it! Definitely start after uni work, I started it during and then ended up finishing the season but not my uni work haha x

  • It's very entertaining! So much drama ALL the time haha. Definitely give it a go! x

  • I know right?! Empire has been one of the most talked about shows this year. Never heard of Royals?! I don't think it airs here in Australia (boo!) but I'll look into it! x

  • OH SUITS! That's one of my faves! It makes me wanna get into law and I hate law hahah x

  • I hope you enjoy them, Heather!! x

  • How good is it?! So addictive! x

  • Ooooh no! I'm a HUGE breaking bad fan so I really do hope I like it too!! x

  • I'm going to start on Empire for sure then! (: Stalker is one of those crime shows but it concentrates solely on stalking cases – kind of like a Criminal Minds! I'm really bad with scary shows so I thought some scenes were definitely creepy! Try watching it!

  • I recently started watching Better Call Saul after finishing Breaking Bad and I love it!
