@bridgertonnetlix

 

As staying home seems to be the new going out, we are compiling lists of tv series to turn that are tailored to meet certain tastes. Whether you love teen drama, side-splitting comedy series, or Emmy awards winning prestige tv, for those wondering what show should I watch, here's the tv shows to add to your binge-watching list.

 

Shows Like Bridgerton

Regal romance, swoon-worthy costumes, and all the gossip courtesy of Shonda Rhimes - if you couldn't get enough of beautiful Bridgerton and can't wait for season 2 of the Netflix series, switch on to even more period playtime with these shows (we can't promise you Rege Jean Page though)

 

Downton Abbey

Black Sails

black sails rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

Another epic period drama that is set during the reign of pirates, the show follows along a group of ex-patriots who have made themselves comfortable in a lawless society in Nassau. The struggle between the monarchy and the rebels proves to be a gripping story with plot twists at exactly the right moments.

Harlots

harlots rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

A show like Bridgerton, but on the underbelly of society, Harlots follows the women of a powerful brothel. The drama that ensues is fun and thought-provoking and, as you can imagine, at times very dark. It's addicting to say the least and will help you while away the hours when you need to.

Who didn't fall in love with the Rose Family?

Arrested Development

Weird family dynamics go awry in the hilarious tongue in cheek comedy of Arrested Development. Following the Bluths, a wealthy family dealing with losing everything because of fraud, this pop culture cult classic is a must.

Shows Like Game of Thrones

@gameofthrones

We all couldn't get enough of King's Landing. From political intrigue to the ultimate power struggle for the iron throne, Game of Thrones made us fall hard for that epic fantasy element. For the thrones fan out there, these historical fiction and fantasy series may just scratch that itch.

 

Vikings

Shows Like Rick And Morty

@rickandmorty

A mad scientist drags his grandson on a ton of sci-fi adventures in this animated sci-fi series. Dark and off-kilter with quick dialogue and adult-centric content, it's no wonder Rick and Morty became an instant late-night Adult Swim fave.

 

BoJack Horseman

bojack horseman rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

If you love BoJack for the animation edge then BoJack Horseman is a must. This humanoid horse was once the star of a tv series but is now washed up in alcohol and self-hating. Sad and funny and brave, this is what a modern tragicomedy looks like.

Midnight Gospel

A show that follows the life of Mindy, an OB-GYN with dating drama, a quirky sense of humor, and killer fashion sense. It's fun to follow along her journey because it's so relatable for most young female professionals. It's also a good laugh for when you just need a solid pick-me-up.

A funny look at what it's like to navigate early adulthood, from one failed (almost) marriage to the decision to have kids. If you need a good laugh and someone to commiserate with over the trials of adulthood, then this is your show.

Shows Like Parks And Rec

@parksandrec

Leslie Knope is our hero forever. We love Parks and Recreation and its political satire and a whole cast of completely loveable and very real feeling fictional characters. The development of character and storyline is impeccable, the humor spot on, and the execution beautiful making it one of our favorite shows.

 

The Good Place

good place rating

Shows Like Gossip Girl

Shows Like The Office

@theoffice

We love following the highs and lows and micro dramas of Dunder Mifflin. The reality TV style of The Office changed the way we saw comedy and is every inch the perfect blend of tender, funny, cringe-worthy, and totally ridiculous. All the ingredients you need.

 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

brooklyn nine nine rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

If you love the mashup of a dysfunctional boss and quirky team dynamics that The Office does so well then you will also fall hard for the similar style of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This show hits that perfect note of exploring relevant cultural themes in a non-threatening way.

The IT Crowd

it crowd rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

For those who want more office-based comedy in their life, The IT Crowd is British and beautifully bonkers. Roy, Moss, and Jen can be found in the basement of their big corporation, winging it through the world as best they can. Witty, ridiculous, and at times downright weird, it's the epitome of what British sitcoms do best.

Shows Like Breaking Bad

@breakingbad

Bryan Cranston may be famed for bringing the binge into fashion as everyone gobbled up Breaking Bad after season 1, but there are other tv gods who paved the way. Take a look at the shows that helped us fall in love with the anti-hero.

 

The Sopranos

the sopranos rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

Forever hailed as one of the best series to hit the screens, The Sopranos is all about the modern-day mafia and their struggles with the changing world, the breakdown of the American dream, the fallout of toxic masculinity, and is nothing short of a masterpiece (that final episode!).

The Wire

the wire rating

Another title topping the list of best binge-worthy tv shows, The Wire helped sculpt the modern series. Taking the cover off the city of Baltimore, The Wire follows both the law, politicians and the complex matrix of dealers and broad-ranging people who are tackling life on the fringes.

Shows Like Peaky Blinders

@peakyblindersofficial

The gangster family epic that tied together period splendor with a razor edge, Peaky Blinders keeps us coming back for more (and more Anya Taylor Joy of course). If you love those tightly wound family dynamics, we have another show that is sure to be right up your street.

 

Succession

succession rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

The Logan family are media moguls and when the patriarch decides to step down, the four grown kids start to battle it out for who will become the successor. Whip-smart, sharp as a tack, and Emmy Award winning, you don't get better television than Succession.

Stream online here: HBO Max, Amazon Prime

 

Shows Like Fleabag

@bbcfleabag

Trying to heal and get your life together is no easy feat as Phoebe Waller-Bridge reminds us in her masterpiece Fleabag. Angry, dry, and with impeccable nuance, there's a vicious humor in every scene of Fleabag.

 

Killing Eve

killing eve rating

Via Rotten Tomatoes

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is also behind Killing Eve, the incredible show about a female serial killer that blends black comedy with high tension and relationship drama between the cop and killer too. Glorious messy stuff filmed in beautiful locales with an awesome costume department.

Follows the ups and downs, the interpersonal relationships and the political dramas that sit at the heart of the modern British royal family, in particular the Queen. Impeccable casting, gorgeous cinematography, and a highly entertaining way to brush up on your history. Plus the Diana years!
