If you and your significant other are ANYTHING like Andrew and myself then you run into this problem a lot. “What do you want to watch?” “How about XYZ…” “Nah I don’t want to watch that.” ALL THE TIME! I have learned in our almost 7 years together the shows we both like and what we want to watch together. I want to share my guide to the best shows for couples to binge watch. Just in case you find yourself in the same situation.

Best Shows For Couples To Binge Watch

Breaking Bad: We didn’t watch this together when it first started but when we started dating it was maybe in season 4 or 5. So we finished it together. It’s still one of our favorites and we have watched it all the way through a few times. I am still shocked when I meet people who haven’t seen it.

Dexter: I will always give my warning to just stop after season 5. I think 1-4 are amazing and 5 is ok. After 5 it gets really weird and stupid. But it’s still a great show.

Schitt’s Creek: We started this on our vacation to Florida and we are still watching it and love it! It’s hysterical and it’s tough for us to find a comedy we both like.

Happy Endings: I admittedly love this way more than Andrew and I am sad I didn’t watch it when it was on. There are only 3 seasons but I still think it’s one of the most underrated shows.

Ozark: We just started this and are almost done with season 1. I like to say it’s a good Breaking Bad substitute but not nearly as good. I still really love it, probably because I love Laura Linney.

Stranger Things: This took us a few episodes but once we got a few episodes in we were hooked! Such a great show and you can watch the first two seasons before the new season starts this summer!

Shameless: Andrew got me into this! I binged the first 3 seasons and we started watching season 4 together. It’s gone a little off the rails in the last few seasons but I still love it.

Bloodlines: We still haven’t finished this-fail. But we have loved what we’ve seen. A very dark show about family.

Friends: I have this and HIMYM on here because there may very well be people who haven’t seen them and to that I say “go watch!” We still fall asleep to it every single night.

How I Met Your Mother: See above. Just watch it. Our go to when we don’t know what to watch.

      I had to talk Izzy into watching Friends and told him if he didn’t like the first 3 episodes we would stop watching. Needless to say he ended up loving it. I knew he would!

      My husband doesn’t watch a lot of tv shows, but I do. Another I would possibly add would be the Arrow-verse, all the DC tv shows: Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Just find a list to watch them in the correct order.

      Awesome suggestions! My husband and I have actually binged a few of the shows on your list and really enjoyed them. We’re currently watching The Handmaid’s Tale.

      This list is so helpful! I’ve been looking for a new show for both of us to watch. It’s tough to find one when your personalities and interests are different!

      My husband and I share different taste on what to watch but that doesn’t stop us to watch some shows together. Although he sleeps in most of mine.

      We have watched so many of these. One of my firm favs is Schitt’s Creek. Very funny and an easy watch xx
