Netflix Binge

It's officially cold & flu season and I spent a good portion of my work holidays ill. Luckily, I didn't have any plans so I spent my time with my good friend, Netflix. Grab your hot tea, warm blankets and medicine and prepare to get lost in a Netflix binge.

A few of my favorites

The Mindy Project

I have professed my love of Mindy on my Instagram and Twitter pages before. Her show is sexy and clever, yet goofy and heartwarming. Plus, the Christmas episodes look like Kate Spade decorated them, the scene is total eye candy. Oh and her clothes and her one liners, amazing! 

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

One of the most inappropriate shows I have ever watched and I have watched each episode so many times I can quote it to you. A group of narcissistic friends who grew up together handle lifes adventures by cursing their way through it. I have a feeling you either love or hate the characters. Danny Devito joined in the second season and they are now the longest running live action comedy show on tv. 

Parks & Recreation

Don't you just wish work was this fun! Leslie (Amy Poehler) is a type A workaholic but loves her team and would do anything for them or JJ's waffles. So many great characters within the show, they could have each done a spin off. I'd love to watch a show that centered on just Ron Swanson. 

Ghost Whisperer

Each episode is another story of someone needing assistance from Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) to move to the "other side". I find the first half of each episode very scary and the second half is all very uplifting and lovely. If you're running a fever, you will probably cry a lot at this show. Plus the house Melinda and her husband are renovating is adorable and her clothes are fantastic. I always watch on tv and have my iPad open to Pinterest to pin her outfits. 


SVU is now in it's 17th season and still going strong! You would think they would run out of cases but they never do and some of the stories "ripped from the headlines" are always interesting to watch. Some episodes are emotionally draining and others leave you with a "justice has been served" feeling of satisfaction. 


One of the strangest, yet funniest, shows I have ever watched. Lot's of sketch comedy, think vignettes that tie into one another, with recurring characters through episodes. Watch from the very first episode and you will be singing "The dream of the 90's is alive in Portland" all day. 

Bates Motel

I just finished the first two seasons of Bates Motel and every episode has you slightly creeped out but also feeling bad for Norman, and sometimes even Norma. Norman Bates, who we all know from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, moves into a motel with his mother following the passing of his father. He's a teenager and we follow him through school and managing typical teenager things. I was surprised to see it set in todays time but it totally works. I really like the brother Dylan, he's a very complex character. 

Believe it or not there are still titles on Netflix that I was not able to watch while I was off. I keep hearing such good things about  the below titles, I am saving them for the next rainy or sick day. They are: Scandal, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Salem, Ally McBeal and Fixer Upper Chip & Joanna.

Fingers crossed that y'all, myself included, do not get hit with another cold this season. At the very least we will have Netflix to keep us entertained!

*There are subtle differences between US & Canadian Netflix, not all titles will apply to your region.
