There is nothing worst than getting settled in to have a binge watching marathon and not even knowing what to watch. I have spent several nights where my friends and I watch trailers to pick a movie to watch, but never end up watching the movies because we never seem to find a good one.
I am here to save you that struggle. Because yes, there is something worse that endlessly searching for what to watch, and that is finding a horrible tv show and wasting your time on it. You find yourself halfway through, wondering if it’s too late to start another one. ‘but what other option do I have?’ the voice in your head askes.
Options, I have options for you here. This is the list of some good binge worthy series.
