Not Sure What to Watch Next? Here’s What Our Editors Are Binge-Watching Right Now

Source: Madeline Galassi

All of my life, my mother has had a strict 9 p.m. bedtime. No matter what function we attended, tasks needed to be accomplished, or vacations we were on, my mother would tap her watch promptly at 8:30 p.m., yawn, and give us the signal that we had to Irish exit and get home STAT. Enter the infinite number of times she had an overwhelming opinion on what to watch on Netflix and then promptly fell into a slumber before the beginning of the movie was even over.

Two weeks ago, my mother called me at 10:30 p.m.—basically her “middle of the night.” What could my mother, who adheres to such a strict bedtime, want this late at night? I answered with much confusion, only to immediately burst out laughing when she exclaimed, “Dexter is such a good show. Have you seen it?”

There’s nothing quite like finding a new thrilling series that makes you abandon your morals and your bedtime. For our editors, these shows do that. From true crime to romance to drama to comedy and beyond, here are 10 shows that our team can’t get enough of right now:

 

1. Prison Break

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 5

This is an oldie but a goodie—I promise. If you have never watched Prison Break and enjoy thrilling action shows that are binge-worthy, then look no further. With undertones of a boiling forbidden romance, government conspiracies, and shocking twists at every turn, I am confident you will be entertained by this 5-season action thriller!

2. The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip

Where to Stream: Peacock

Number of Seasons: 1

So maybe I’m biased because I love reality TV (like, the trashier the better), but the Ultimate Girls Trip was the treat from the reality TV gods that I needed. It’s like everything you love about The Real Housewives but with way more drama and on a tropical island (and with a hot butler—to no one’s surprise—who Luann hits on). It’s fascinating watching all the women you know and love (or love to hate) interact with each other. I’ll be honest, after watching the first episode, I bought Peacock Premium just to watch the rest of the season and it was well worth the $5.

3. Station Eleven

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 1

This one hits close to home, as it tells the stories of survivors before, during, and after a devastating fictional flu pandemic hits. If you enjoyed The Walking Dead, this show has a similar take on how humans create life and civilization again after an illness kills off most of the world’s population. I’m obsessed with the casting and was instantly hooked after the first episode.

– Keely Geist, Senior Social Media Editor

 

4. Dexter: New Blood

Where to Stream: Showtime

Number of Seasons: 1

Surprisingly enough, I never watched the original Dexter series but am somehow hooked on this spinoff season. If you can stomach some of the gory details (I just cover my eyes), then this slow-burning thriller will be sure to grab your attention. I personally don’t love super dark shows, which is why I didn’t watch the original Dexter. When I stumbled upon this season, I hesitantly watched the first episode, but after watching it, I knew I needed to discover what would happen next.

– Kirra Bento, Graphic Designer

 

5. The Morning Show

Where to Stream: Apple TV

Number of Seasons: 2

Listen, I know I’m late to this one. I wasn’t going to get Apple TV, but I caved to watch Ted Lasso (also 100% a must-watch), and if you’re also late to the game, you absolutely should watch The Morning Show ASAP. I typically go for a light, bingeable show but love that The Morning Show is engaging, deals with topics that are relevant now, and has an incredible cast. It feels too real and too important not to watch.

– Jessica Jones, Social Media Editor

 

6. The Sex Lives of College Girls

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 1

I’m a little behind on this one, but after many glowing recommendations from friends, I decided to give The Sex Lives of College Girls a watch—and then I finished the entire series on one Friday night. This show is everything I was missing in my regular watch list—it’s fun and easy to watch, all of the acting is amazing, and the characters are lovable. If you’ve been chasing that feeling that 2000s-era shows like One Tree Hill and 90210 gave you, this is the one for you.

– Jess Welsh, Assistant Editor and Junior Graphic Designer

 

7. Yellowjackets

Where to Stream: Showtime

Number of Seasons: 1

This new series on Showtime is the perfect mix of ’90s nostalgia, mystery, and dark humor! I love when shows jump from present day to moments in the past throughout the series to develop the whole picture. Every episode leaves you with just enough to keep following along, not to mention that it stars some of my favorite ladies in Hollywood, such as Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis.

– Andi Wynter, Social Media Editor

 

8. Euphoria

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 2

The good news is: Euphoria is back! The bad news is that we have to wait until every Sunday for a new episode. It has been a really long time since I’ve watched a show where I felt so emotionally attached to every single character. Every storyline is so well thought out in this series, and while some scenes and topics discussed in this show are very heavy, every episode is shot so beautifully, you really cannot look away.

– Andi Wynter, Social Media Editor 

 

9. Greek

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 4

After watching and loving The Sex Lives of College Girls, I felt like I really needed another lighthearted, easy-to-watch college drama to watch, so I landed on Greek. I watched this show way back in the day when it first aired, but I hadn’t seen an episode since, so it feels like watching a whole new show. I think this show is criminally underrated, and I’ve really been enjoying it.

– Jess Welsh, Assistant Editor and Junior Graphic Designer

 

10. Gossip Girl

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 1

I started watching this show when it first released last fall, and honestly, it was bad. I watched one episode and didn’t continue. But during the holidays, I wanted a guilty pleasure show I could put on in the background or fall asleep to, so I started this back up again, and now I love it. Is it good yet? No, but I enjoy it nonetheless. It brings me joy (and is making me highly consider an original GG rewatch).

11. Yellowstone

Where to Stream: Peacock

Number of Seasons: 3

“Do you watch Yellowstone?” was the #1 holiday question my husband and I got asked this year. I wish I had thought to tally it to compare it with last year’s “so when are you going to have a baby?”, but the results probably would have just opened an old wound. Nevertheless, all of my relatives (both close and distant) were not wrong in proclaiming their love for this Western drama. The most simple way to describe it is Succession meets Game of Thrones but in Montana with sexy cowboys. Every character is somehow bad, and yet you find yourself rooting for your favorite villain. There’s enough betrayal, violence, doomed love, and cliffhanger moments to make you positively giddy over the four whole seasons you’ll get to binge through.

12. And Just Like That…

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 1

Prior to the release of Sex and the City’s long awaited return to the small screen, I binge-watched most episodes and the two movies, and it made me heavily excited for the show. Now, it’s the only show I’m watching every single week without fail for the first time since I tuned into the final season of Game of Thrones. Each episode gets better and better, but I’ll be honest: Even if it was pure dumpster-fire trash, I’d still watch for the nostalgia alone.

– Beth Gillette, Beauty Content Manager and Associate Editor

 

13. Queer Eye

Where to Stream: Netflix

Number of Seasons: 8

Queer Eye is back to remind us that there is hope and love in the world—and let me just tell you that after the past two years, I desperately needed the reminder. The Fab Five is in Austin making over the sweetest bunch of heroes. Just know that you’ll be crying during every single episode.

– Allyson Trammell, Editor-In-Chief 

 

14. Sharp Objects

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 1

My best friend and I are suckers for the type of shows where we can send each other endless video and audio messages about our complex theories as we watch, (think: Mare of Easttown, Big Little Lies, etc.) so when she told me to watch Sharp Objects, I took no hesitation in beginning. This 2018 limited series based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn follows journalist Camille Preaker—played by Amy Adams—as she heads back to her hometown in Missouri to follow a potential story. It’s got it all: a small-town murder-mystery, dynamic background characters, and a main character you learn to root for. My theories change from episode to episode, and I’m still not sure where I stand, but if there’s one thing I do know for sure, it’s that I trust Gillian Flynn to tie it all together.

15. Laguna Beach

Where to Stream: Paramount+

Number of Seasons: 3

You know a show is an ultimate classic when “Come Clean” by Hilary Duff is the theme song! This was one of the first shows that got me into my reality show obsession, and I’ve had the biggest feeling of nostalgia since I’ve decided to rewatch where Lauren Conrad all started. Not only does this show make you realize how different our fashion taste was in the early 2000s, but it is also the perfect show to watch to remind you of just how dramatic we all were in our teenage years.

– Andi Wynter, Social Media Editor

 

16. Insecure

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 5

Insecure was one of those shows that was always “on my list for a rainy day,” but I had no idea it would ultimately land a spot in my top 10 favorite shows of all time. I finally bumped it to the top of my queue this month and found myself so invested that I did nothing else but binge episodes for an entire week. I didn’t text back, work out, or do anything productive because every second of free time was spent staring at Issa Rae’s impossibly beautiful face as she navigated friendships, relationships, and finding herself in Los Angeles. It was like the perfect book you can’t put down but in show form. I cried, I laughed, I frantically Googled the actors to see what else I could watch them in, and then cried again when it was over.

17. Search Party

Where to Stream: HBO Max

Number of Seasons: 5

I am so obsessed with sitcoms. If there is a show out there that is a span of 20-ish minutes, chances are, I’m going to watch it. It seems like everyone around me is talking about Search Party right now, so of course, I had to give it a go. I’m still a bit early into this 5-season show, but right off the bat, I found myself laughing and interested in the rest of the story, which follows a group of friends searching for an old acquaintance who has gone missing. It’s captivating and witty and overall a great show to put on and just get lost in for an episode or two—or three or four or five.
