I am always just a little bit late to the party…it took me forever to get on the statement necklace kick, I waited until last year to start watching Game of Thrones, and I seriously just got into Netflix last year.
That being said I have found some awesome series to watch via Netflix and today I waned to share them with you…keep in mind that these recommendations are coming to you from a single 30-something female. I love comedy, drama, and historical shows. Ok? Now that that’s settled lets get to it!!
Orange is the New Black. This is the whole reason I wanted to get Netflix in the first place. This is the very first show I binge watched and I loved every single minute of it. It is a Netflix original and has won several awards!
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. This show is another Netflix original and I freaking love it. It’s about a girl who was a part of a cult and was finally rescued and released back into society and she’s about 20 years behind on everything…cell phones, music, fashion, slang words, everything! It is written and reduced by Tina Fey if that tells you anything…I think it’s pretty damn funny!!
Reign. I fell in love with Reign last year after watching Game of Thrones. I needed something to tide me over until next season and something sort of historical. Reign is actually a CW show and not a Netflix original but I seriously love it. Each season ask have over 20 episodes so it is sure to keep you watching for a while. It is currently in season 3 on TV right now.
The 100. The 100 is another CW show I fell in love with after binge watching on Netflix. It’s sort of Hunger Games meets space if that makes any sense. Plus, it has Isaiah Williams who I miss from his days on Grey’s Anatomy!!
Jessica Jones. Jessica Jones is my newest Netflix series to discover. This show is a Netflix original that dropped last November and I am just now getting around to watching. I love it so far and that says a lot because I normally don’t go for comic book based series. It’s kind of dark and twisty which I love!!
Now that we have covered shows I have binged my way through recently I want to talk about show I want to watch! Has anyone seen House of Cards yet?? I hear it’s really good and it’s on my “list”. I also have The Walking Dead only list too and I’m really surprised it has taken me so long to want to watch that. What can I say? I am chronically late to the game!! HA!!
I also have a list of shows I want to catch up on…Pretty Little Liars and The Heart of Dixie. I stopped watching PLL at the start of last season and even though I totally know what’s going to happen I want to watch anyway!! And Heart of Dixie I stopped watching a few seasons ago but I really loved it so I want to catch up!!
And of course I can’t write a whole blog post about Netflix and not include Fuller House!!! I am sooooo excited for this show!! I was a huge Full House fan growing up, I think every kid in the 90’s was, and so I am definite ready to see the new show!!! I also can’t wait to watch the four new episodes of Gilmore Girls and Netflix’s new original series Love. I have way too much TV to watch coming up…LOL!!
What are your favorite Netflix shows to binge watch??
Are you ready for Fuller House??

I loooove OITNB and Kimmy Schmidt too! I’ve never seen the other 3 you mentioned. I just had a baby and I’m stuck in the house right now, I might need to start one of these.
I need to catch up on The Heart of Dixie. My daughter and I started watching it and life got in the way and we really need to catch up. Can’t wait to watch Fuller House!
Karen W says
Pretty much all I watch these days is Netflix. I finished Hart of Dixie last night. Loved the show, but was pretty disappointed with the ending. I can’t wait for Fuller House and Gilmore Girls. I’m going to have to check out The 100 and Unbreakable. They both sound like something I would like, and I’m in need of a new series.
Love Kimmy Schmidt! House of Cards I am almost finished with the 1st season and I love it. Also can not wait for Gilmore Girls and Fuller House!! We keep talking about starting Orange is the New Black but started How I Met Your Mother Instead.
I really need to check out Jessica Jones. From the few clips I have seen, I know i will enjoy the series.
Have never heard or seen anything on The 100. Adding it to my list too. Thanks.
Liz Mays says
This is a great list. We’ve seen seasons 1 & 2 of Orange is the New Black. We’re thinking about checking out Jessica Jones next.
YES! Fantastic list! I also love the Lily Tomlin – Jane Fonda show! And I can’t wait to see Fuller House (yes, the young girl in me is excited).
Out of curiousity, I wonder how many people have never seen OITNB?! It’s the best!
Mimi Green says
I am certainly watching Orange Is the New Black and I’m waiting until June like a crack head. I’ve not watched the other shows, I will give them a go.
Based on the picture Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt sounds like something I would enjoy.
Jenn @ EngineerMommy says
These are some great show recommendations. I’d love to sit down and have a marathon session of catching up on these shows. Now I just need to find the time for that!
Megan Elford says
We watch Netflix all the time, but I’ve never actually seen any of these shows! Time to plan a binge night, lol!
I have to look at all these. They sound amazing. I can’t wait for House of Cards!
Stephen Parry says
I love watching all 5 of these! My fave has got to be kimmy schmidt!! Great picks :)
I never know what to watch and so I always end up watching 30 Rock re-runs. I need to check some of these out, thanks for the list!
I love Netflix.. My husband is thinking to cancel the membership because we can’t stop watching TV series LOL
April Decheine says
A few of them I have not watched, I was hooked on Burn Notice, I have watched it a few times!
Up Run for Life says
My husband liked Jessica Jones. However. It seems they took it off streaming devices.
I miss our Netflix! I need to sign up again. I def need to catch Orange is The New Black I have heard amazing things about it! I can’t get on the Game of Thrones wagon for some reason, my fiancee loves it and i’m all ‘what’s the point everyone dies’ lol Terrible I know!
John lopez says
I want a huge fan of Netflix! I recently finished watching Narcos which I highly recommend. I’m looking forward to house of cards in March.
Wildish Jess says
Other than Jessica Jones, I’ve seen all the rest! I did not however care for Unbreakable. It was a little too cheesy for me.
