A Sucker for Series

So I am a sucker for series, honestly I think I have seen 90% of the shows out there, good and bad. I am a terrible sleeper and spend most nights killing time watching series. Sometimes though the shows are so good it actually keeps me from sleep completely, those can't wait to see what happens, only one more, type of shows. So I have decided to share my favourite, most noteworthy shows with you.

Feel Good Shows

Younger - Ok this is one of my all time favourites, like toe curling, nail biting good. I binge watched the first two seasons in one night until the sun came up and forced me to stop. Its about a 40 year old woman who can't get a job and then pretends to be 26 to land a job as an intern at a publishing house.

The Bold Type - A funny, sit back and relax show about three friends working at a magazine, each of them working through their own life problems while being there for one other.

No Tomorrow - I absolutely loved watching this, I just wanted to live life and go for my dreams after each episode. Its about a girl who meets a guys who believes the world is coming to an end, together they go through their bucket lists and starting doing all the things that really matter in life.

Modern Family - A light, don't have to concentrate comedy about a big family and the everyday dramas they experience. This is really one of the funniest, best written shows I've watched.

Your inner Teen Shows - These would be the ones you watch without the hubby, the typical girl shows, the main story line being about love.

Jane the Virgin - Omg, I started watching this when I was pregnant and fell involve with it as the story line progressed in parallel with my mom life. Its a modern version soapie, about a virgin who accidentally gets inseminated. This show is funny and dramatic and relates a lot to our daily mommy challenges.

The arrangement - This show is about an actress who goes for an audition but instead of getting the role she gets offered a contract to marry the A-star hollywood celeb for a great deal of money.

Famous in love - A college student gets a massive role in a hollywood movie and needs to learn how to balance her new life, there's also a bit of a love triangle between her, her roommate and her new co-star.

The Vampire Diaries - All I'm saying is this must be televisions most epic love triangle ever and I just love a love triangle. A girl falls in love with two brothers, two extremely hot and sexy brother LOL! The show is about so much more than that but its definitely one of the best love stories that made me cry many many times. Just watch it!

Drama & Suspense shows

Timeless - When a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, planning to use it to change past events to destroy present day America, the only hope is a team of unexpected heroes composed of a scientist, a soldier and a history professor. The trio must use the stolen machine's prototype to journey back in time to critical events, being careful not to affect history themselves.

Suits - Big-time Manhattan corporate lawyer Harvey Specter hires a college dropout Mike Ross. The fact that Ross isn't actually a lawyer isn't lost on Specter, who believes his new right-hand man is a legal prodigy with the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a hustler. However, in order to keep their jobs, the charade must remain strictly between these two unconventional thinkers.

Doubt - Another law firm show, but this one the lawyer falls involve with her client.

Big little Lies - Typical mom show, its about a small town of moms and all their own personal dramas.

Ballers - Something to watch with the hubby. An ex baller becomes an financial adviser for all his football buddies, a inside look af the crazy lives of football players in america.

Hard Core Shows

Game of Thrones - I don't think this needs an explanation, probably one of the worlds most anticipated shows currently.

Taboo - Im not sure how to describe this show other that saying TOM HARDY, excellent acting & directing. The show can be very gruesome and violet but if your not bothered by that kind of thing its definitely worth a watch. Do yourself a favour and check out the trailer.

Outlander - A married woman accidentally travels back in time where she is forced to get married to a stranger to save her life. While trying to find a way to get back to the future and her real husband she find herself falling in love with her new husband. This is an extremely good show, each episode leaving me craving more, there is a lot of violence and intense scenes, but its raw, honest and really full of emotion.

Vikings - Also very gruesome and violet but also very good. Its about a farmer who raises to fame by successfully raiding England. A lot of insight to the viking culture and lifestyle of those days.

Banshee - This was also one of those "just one more" kinds shows that kept you up till early morning hours because its just so good. An ex-con gets out of prison and goes looking for his old love only to find out she's moved on, he steals the identity of the new sheriff in town and tries to reconnect with her.

Westworld - Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park -- which is looked after by robotic "hosts" -- allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park's guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged.
