Curation Station: Binge-Worthy

The other day I was chatting with friends about our favorite tv shows to binge on. I am quite the master of the binge watching since it helps pass away the time when I have mindless work to do. Here are some of my all-time favorite tv series that are binge-worthy (thanks to Netflix, Xfinity to Go, Amazon Prime and Hulu for making this all possible): 

1. Arrested Development- This show gets better each time I watch it since there are some many running jokes that I didn't catch on the first, second or even third time watching the series. (I'm speaking of only the original three seasons. I'm still not sure how I feel about the fourth season but I think I'll have to watch it through a second time).

2. Rocky and Bullwinkle- With a cliffhanger ending in each episode, it's hard not to binge on this classic cartoon. And I also love Fractured Fairy Tales and Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

3. Lost- Say what you want to say about how badly this show ended (I'm in that camp), but this was the first show I seriously binged on. Back in college, I borrowed Big Sista's dvds for seasons 1 & 2 and could not stop popping in dvd after dvd. If you stick it out for all six seasons, kudos, but I'd stop after season 3.

4. Curb Your Enthusiasm- Some of my favorite movies/tv shows are the ones that are super awkward. For Larry David, his life is just one big, awkward hot mess. It's hilarious, cringe-worthy and completely entertaining. Make more seasons, please!

5. The Office- I stuck with this show through all 9 seasons. It was sometimes hard to watch after Steve Carrell left the show but then it bounced back and ended so perfectly.

6. The X Files- An oldie but a goodie. I love the spooky, freaks of the week episodes and less of the alien conspiracy ones but it's all good fun.

Honorable mentions that are still airing: Veep, Louie, The Walking Dead, Pretty Little Liars (I have no shame watching that teeny bopper show), Game of Thrones, Hannibal and Girls.

(And I know I should start watching Breaking Bad and The Sopranos. Any other recommendations?).
