Sometimes you just want to relax. When I’m in the mood to sit around and do nothing, the first thing I do is open up a bottle of wine, head to the couch and turn on the TV. Here is my current list of favorite TV shows to binge on when I’m trying to relax.
Psych is the only show where I audible laugh throughout every episode. If you haven’t watched it, change that right now.
I always appreciate a show that you can jump in and watch at any point and still understand what’s happening. This show also does a great job of holding onto jokes and pulling them out seasons later with no real reason for it (i.e., blue handprints on the wall). All around great show to watch (minus the Netflix season).
I love food and traveling, so naturally, I gravitate toward shows that talk about food and other cultures. David Chang is pretty funny and the guests he has on the shows are great to listen to. I highly recommend this Netflix show on a rainy day. Do not watch this when you’re hungry.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians
This is a new one for me. A couple hangovers ago, I ended up watching KUWTK and it changed my life. These people are always in the news, so watching things from the start of their show is fun because you know exactly how they turn out years later. Watching this show may be more about schadenfreude than anything, but it is pretty damn entertaining. I won’t apologize for this choice.
No Reservations/Anything Anthony Bourdain
I always have an urge to travel, but sometimes that urge is far more intense. When that happens, I instantly turn on Anthony. This guy is not only funny but also educational and interesting to watch. He connects with great people who share wonderful insights into a culture or region.
Great British Bake Off
Not only is GBBO inspirational for my own cooking and baking, it’s lighthearted and fun to watch. This is easily my favorite show to binge watch during winter.
