It’s getting (really) cold, and after you eat a ton of food, what else is there to do but watch some good TV and relax… then eat some more? Well, luckily we’ve put together a list of every show you should absolutely binge-watch over the holidays.
Whether it’s already started (The Affair) or it’s long over but will forever be a classic (One Tree Hill), we’ve compiled 15 shows to pass the time, that you should binge watch over your break, but beware: you will get addicted. These are in no order, because there’s no way I could pick favorites, but they’re all very important!
1. Veronica Mars
We know you love iZombie, but you’d enjoy it 100 times more if you watched Rob Zombie‘s original show, Veronica Mars with the one and only, Kristen Bell. Plus, you won’t get stressed out watching — you just won’t want to stop. Watch the series here!
2. One Tree Hill
Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, Sophia Bush... need I say more? Well this CW original was nine seasons long, and it’s very worth your time. Plus, if you only get through the first five, you can just stop there anyway — trust me. Watch the series here!
3. Brothers & Sisters
Before you loved to hate Calista Flockhart on Supergirl, you just loved her on Brothers & Sister. This show will definitely make you feel all warm inside and really cherish some good ol’ family time. Watch the series here!
4. Jane the Virgin
We’re only midway through season two of Jane the Virgin and the Golden Globe winning series is super funny, and well, totally sweet. You can quickly catch up, so watch season one here!
If you’re somehow not watching this show, well, you have time to catch up. It may just be the most addictive show on TV right now and the combination of mystery, action, and well, really hot hooking up, you can quickly get through the first half in time for the second. Watch it here.
I know, most of you have already binged this multiple times and probably, like me, own the box set. However, I know there are some who haven’t and the holidays is the perfect time to start! Everyone knows Friends have the best holiday episodes so this show will obviously give you that warm and fuzzy feeling you missed. Watch it here!
8. Gilmore Girls
With the series getting a 4-episode revival series based on the seasons, it’s the perfect show to binge-watch. You know you have to learn all the couples before finding out who’s endgame and who Rory should really be with. Watch the series here!
10. Follow the Rules
See a side of Ja Rule that you’ve definitely never seen before — as a father and husband. He stopped in to our office with his wife to completely rave over his family, and trust me, you want to watch and see what happens when his kids DATE! Murder? No, JK! Catch up here!
11. The Hills
Who doesn’t want to feel the rain on their skin? We all know that Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Kristin Cavallari has gotten into their personal, adult, married lives now, but nothing will every beat those mascara tears and Justin-Bobby antics. Watch the series here!
12. Teen Wolf
After that explosive trailer that just dropped, even if you’ve never seen the show, you know you want to. Plus, just look at that cast. That’s all, watch it here.
Cookie has become every girl’s #goals, and there’s no doubt the music on this show is right on point. You know you wan to be involved in the Twitter chatter so you can catch up on season one and the first part of season two before it returns. Catch up right here!
Alright, I know it jumped the shark but don’t believe the bad things about the show — it started out fire. Not only are you missing out on a lot of amazing music, and of course, the work of Ryan Murphy but also the storyline was pretty addicting. Watch the first few seasons here!
15. The Affair
Last but definitely not least, is Showtime’s hottest show — and no not just because of Joshua Jackson (although that’s a good reason to watch). This show has a great mystery, a lot of hot hook ups and romance that will make your heart melt. Also, it’s only in season two, so you can power through season one here.
