So You Want to Binge Watch Media Content?

The only good marathon, is a media content marathon. Here are my top five, marathon-able shows.

In no particular order:

Number One Parks and Recreation

If you haven’t heard of it by now Parks and Rec is a mock documentary comedy set in the parks and recreation department of Pawnee Indiana. It is one of my all time favourite shows and has 7 seasons of episodes to binge on. Even if you’ve seen the show before Parks and Rec always warrants a re watch and never stops being funny.

Number Two MisFits

Misfits isn’t a widely know series but it has a cult following. It centers on a group of young people who have been sent to do community service, each for a different offence. After an electrical storm weird things start to happen – that’s very vague but i don’t want to give too much away. This dark comedy isn’t for everyone. It can be very rude and has a lot of mature themes (and some violence) but I would definitely recommend it to those of you who like the comedy horror genre and a bit of swearing.

Number Three Brooklyn Nine Nine

Having just finished its 4th season Brooklyn Nine Nine is the best thing currently playing on tv. An amazing cast, amazing writing, and utterly hilarious. The first three seasons are on Australian Netflix already, and the fourth shouldn’t be too far away. I already can’t wait to re watch it.

Number Four NBC Hannibal

Whether you’re a long time fan of Hannibal in book or film form or not, you will love Bryan Fuller’s – dare I say masterpiece? I don’t want to over hype it for you but this show, this gosh darn show, is great. Beautifully shot, amazing cast, amazing, amazing. Of course it is a show about a the FBI investigating terrible murders and a man who kills and eats people so if you’re not a fan of gore give it miss.

Number Five Good Mythical Morning

Strictly speaking Good Mythical Morning is not a ‘show’ – it’s a YouTube show. Every week day Rhett and Link put up an episode of GMM AND GMMORE as well as their new This Is Mythical channel which is filled with little extras. I wanted to put GMM o the list because there is just so much content and all of it is funny and care free. If you want to binge watch anything GMM is the thing.


Those are my recommendations, but what is your favourite thing to binge watch, or to re watch over and over again?
