You Should Binge-Watch These 5 Shows This Weekend Instead of Being Productive

In case you’ve missed out on a the most common addiction of modern times, binge-watching is an obsessive, unhealthy, and monomaniacal gorge on a single TV show. With the prevalence of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and the ever-growing list of subscription services enabling your binge-watching addiction, there are more options than ever. It may even feel a little overwhelming. So if you’ve been looking for the next show to lose your weekend watching, here are just a few more options.

The 100

You have probably heard about The 100. I heard about it from my friend at least 100 times before I began watching, and if you’re on any social media platforms, you’ve probably seen dedicated fans of the show taking over. The 100 magically appeared on Netflix one day and I finally dove in. When a group of 100 teenagers is sent to survive on Earth with no adults, chaos is destined to ensue. Full of drama, romance, and good old post-apocalyptic survival, you won’t be able to stop watching once you start. There’s a reason why the fan base is so intense!

Season 3 of The 100 just began airing on The CW so catch Seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix and see what all of the fuss is about.


Before Marvel‘s Jessica Jonesthere was Daredevil. Taking place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Daredevil follows Matt Murdock, a lawyer who also happens to be a crime fighter by night. For any lover of Marvel, Daredevil is a must watch as it links to and references other pieces within the universe. Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple first makes an appearance in Daredevil before her short stint on Jessica JonesDaredevil features a darker and more mature Marvel universe than we’ve seen in the films.

Season 2 of Daredevil hits on Netflix on March 18 so start your Season 1 binge today.

The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth is an amazingly unique show currently airing on network television. It’s still shocking to me as this show is so strange. Following Phil, the titular last man on Earth, this show is quirky and hilarious while maintaining heartfelt commentary on humanity as a whole. If you’ve ever wondered what life would be like ruling the Earth alone, then this show will give you even more ideas. Just prepare yourself for unexpected surprises!

Watch The Last Man on Earth Season 1 on Hulu. Season 2 returns March 6.

House of Cards

Politics are always a hot topic, so jump on the bandwagon of becoming even more disillusioned with politicians! While Frank Underwood and company won’t give you any warm, fuzzy feelings, this searing look behind the scenes of fictionalized American politics will certainly keep you intrigued. Just see if you can stop watching at the end of Season 1. I dare you.

Watch Seasons 1-3 of House of Cards on Netflix then start Season 4 when it’s released on March 4.

Terra Nova

Although Terra Nova was short-lived, this sci-fi show displayed terrifying glimpses into a future where the Earth becomes inhabitable. Humans are then sent back to form a colony 85 million years in Earth’s past–before we ruined the environment. Oh yeah, and there are dinosaurs! Families must learn how to survive in this new world as continued danger seems to pop up constantly. Did I mention the dinosaurs?

Watch Terra Nova Season 1 on Netflix.
