8 Most Binge Worthy Shows to Get Engrossed in Tonight
We’re well aware everyone is more likely to spend their holidays glued to the TV than somewhere on a date. Moreover, the probability of leaving the house during this time is relatively small. We have already made detailed guides on sending nudes and hot texts: those will come in handy for your at-home entertainment. Still, a watchlist is essential! Don’t know what to watch? Feel like you’ve seen everything? We picked different movies and shows for you — and Pure Team will tell you what they’re going to be watching (or rewatching) this during the holidays! Check out our binge-watch list.
A top pick from our editor-in-chief. Is there anything better than The Simpsons or American Dad? Yes, there is! Disenchantment is about a princess actively searching. Not necessarily for her prince — more like beer, the purpose of life, and adventures. So, a drunk princess at that. Add an elf and a mini-demon to the mix and you’ve got your new best friends. This is just like in our all-time favorite movies: you either want to be the main character or you want to be with her. Handy date ideas are given on the show, too!
We wrote about Goop already, but we’re convinced that Gwyneth’s best recent project is Politician. Firstly, it’s a beautiful show. Secondly, there is everything a good modern show should have: a detective plot, love, gender diversity, self-search. Thirdly, it’s created by Ryan Murphy. So if you have a Netflix account, but for some reason you don’t know what to binge on Netflix, then you definitely should watch Politician! Overall, the show is a direct guide on how to run for president. Who knows — you might need it in the future. Spoiler: if you’re looking for dating inspiration, you may find a non-trivial threesome invitation in the first season.
More the Merrier
You’ve watched everything. You've read everything. Now you need something lighthearted and exciting — and easy to consume. We’re offering you a Spanish film about an adult club. Several touching stories (a few of which are intertwined), a lot of steamy scenes, gender & age diversity of Pedro Almodóvar's vibe. It’s far from a masterpiece, but is definitely worth watching and getting inspired by!
Teenagers, hot romance, parties, shame, shame, and more shame. Judging by several spin-offs in the form of mini-stories on Netflix, "Elite" gathered popularity all over the world, and people want to see more. If you happen to be a Euphoria fan, this one's for you. We already explained in the first sentence why the show is worth watching, and as a bonus, you’ll be getting the opportunity to master your Spanish skills. Plus, there’s Miguel Herrán — Rio from Money Heist.
Our copywriter’s top pick. Fathers and Sons – 2021 version. In the center of the plot is an influential and obscenely rich family — with a tyrant dad, of course. Somewhere in between the constant family drama, NSFW dialogue, betrayal, and shareholder meetings, humanity can be found. And precisely that humanity and imperfection of the characters makes it impossible to stop watching. As a bonus, you’ll be able to finally understand how big companies operate, albeit in a misinformative way. Not to mention the fact that Succession is one of the best TV shows of all time. It has 3 seasons, so it’s perfect for binge-watching. Meanwhile, we’re all patiently waiting for season 4.
Oh, you’ve seen it all and you don’t know what to binge watch during the holidays? Classics of the genre: a sitcom and a drama two-in-one. It’s versatile, as in perfect for watching with friends, with family, with your Pure match, or even alone — in any case it’s gonna make you feel warm and fuzzy in the most Christmas way. Some people say New Girl should be watched at least three times — can’t argue, totally agree. It’s probably one of the most binge-watched shows of all time. But let’s just say, 90% of the main character Jess’ problems could have been easily avoided if Pure existed on the show. Honestly.
We’ve already written about the new Gossip Girl from HBO. It has been included on lists of the most anticipated TV shows. Have you all watched the original, though? Personal very humble opinion: it’s much better. The most problematic, capricious, and plain disobedient teenagers without parental control or credit card limits — what could possibly go wrong? We really love and appreciate the original show for the late 00’s atmosphere, love triangles, fashion choices, and, of course, for Penn Badgley.
The White Lotus
A mini-series with just one season - and criminally underrated at that. The show has nothing to do with Christmas — rather, it’s the complete opposite. A summer vacation. But still, it’s one of the best TV shows for binge-watching over the holidays. There’s a luxury resort, a lot of family drama, and suspense. Marriages that are working and not working anymore. Not intrigued yet? Then get this: Jennifer Coolidge is on the show, and her character is just the way you imagined. A certified MILF — signed and stamped. Only six episodes, so you’ll be done with The White Lotus in one sitting. Now go watch!
