Top 10 TV Shows to Binge Watch With Your BFF

Looking for a good time indoors? How about some quality television you can watch with your BFF? Welcome to MsMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 TV Shows to Binge Watch With Your BFF.

#10: “Parks and Recreation” (2009-15)

This hit series arrived on the scene with both praise and criticism. Critics argued that creators Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, copied the show’s mockumentary style of filmmaking, made famous by “The Office. The series centers around Leslie, portrayed by the comically talented Amy Poheler, and her shenanigans as a mid level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation department of Pawnee, Indiana while trying to make the world a better place. A show so focused on friendships and relationships in general, this series is a no brainer as a binge watch option with your own bestie. With its lovable characters, hysterical plots, and modern feminist issues, Parks and Recreation hit the mark time and time again.

#9: “Modern Family” (2009-)

Constantly breaking social barriers, this hilarious mockumentary-style sitcom created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan tells the story of a modern California family complete with gay couples, interracial couples, and lots of love. Alternating between three different couples, this popular series brings the laughs with its witty storylines, wacky characters, and talented guest stars. Although it has been met with some controversy from the LGBT community and feminists, the creators have always been happy to address these concerns through new and fascinating story arcs. Pretty cool, right? If you ever want to watch a show that teaches people to love others just the way they are, then “Modern Family” is for you.

#8: “Game of Thrones” (2011-)

Created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and based off the popular book series by George R. R. Martin, this HBO series is a medieval wonder. Known for its unbelievable content and cliffhangers, as well as its gripping storylines and top-notch performances, “Game of Thrones” is one of the most addictive shows on television. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing out: this series combines politics with medieval fantasy as leaders from the seven kingdoms of Westeros fight to decide who should rule them all. However, with Daenerys building her army across the sea with three dragons, these guys have their work cut out for them. Though its many storylines may sometimes leave some viewers confused, they never make us any less invested in the characters.

#7: “Jane the Virgin” (2014-)

A modern Virgin Mary- ok maybe not, but this fun series about celibacy and romance is so addictive you can’t help but want to watch the adventures of Jane in every episode. Centered around a strongly religious young woman named Jane who believes in remaining a virgin until marriage, the comedy-drama telenovela sees things go wrong during a routine check up when Jane is accidentally impregnated through artificial insemination. Created by Jennie Snyder Urman, this fresh and modern take on Latin American serial dramas effectively mixes humorous and complex storylines to make it a treasure to binge.

#6: “The Office” (2005-13)

Who doesn’t love Michael Scott? Based off the original British sitcom of the same name, “The Office” is a pure delight thanks to its documentary style filmmaking, smart stories, and, of course, Steve Carrell. This Greg Daniels series follows the hilarious antics of the boss, the aforementioned Scott, and the rest of the employees of the made-up company Dunder-Mifflin. One of the more unique things about “The Office” is the way it can bring you out of your worst moods. With its well-crafted jokes, hysterical plot, and well-developed characters, this show takes you on an unforgettable journey that will leave you hosting a binge watch marathon with your bff – and maybe more. In short, it's hard to argue that “The Office” is not comic gold.

#5: “The O.C.” (2003-07)

This popular Fox series displayed the culture shock between an idealistic family and their superficial and narrow-minded Newport Beach community. This show is also a coming of age story about the lives of troubled youth Ryan Atwood, who is adopted by the Cohen family, and his step brother, Seth, as they navigate through a cruel social world. Through their various friendships and romantic entanglements, they are taught the good as well as the consequences of said relationships. “The O.C.” kept us tuning in every week with its special attention to teen social issues, impeccable storytelling, and memorable characters, and will keep us re-watching it for years to come.

#4: “Master of None” (2015-)

This hit Netflix series was created by Alan Yang and Aziz Ansari, the latter of whom also stars as the main protagonist. Dev Shah is a struggling 30-year-old actor, trying to find himself while living in New York City. The show is absolutely fantastic for its charm, hilarious storylines, and a fresh take on the life of an actor just trying to get through the day with all the craziness in his life. It also tackles relationships, food, and other modern issues that millennials are sure to relate to. If you haven’t watched this brilliant series yet, don’t wait; even if it’s just for the charismatic and talented Aziz Ansari alone.

#3: “Gilmore Girls” (2000-07)

“Gilmore Girls” follows the tale of a single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. The series was riveting due to the social issues that it addressed, along with its brilliant and realistic story arcs around family, friendship, romance, work, education, and class status just to name a few. However, what is really the heart and soul of the show is the relationship between Lorelai and Rory. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show’s unique style of dialogue, strong family themes, amazing cast performances, and clever balance between comedy and drama make it highly recommended for binge-watchers everywhere. And with a Netflix revival of the series in 2016, now is the perfect time to catch up!

#2: “Sex and the City” (1998-04)

Even if you never took the pleasure to view this pop culture icon when it was originally on the air, you still know its title and its popular theme song. This HBO romantic comedy, created by Darren Star, tells the story of four best friends navigating their professional and romantic relationships in New York City. Although its content wouldn’t always leave the best impression on young females, its characterizations of women had its upsides, such as when it presented the fairer sex as happy to be herself. Whatever your opinion of the show, no one can deny its impact in television history thanks to its brilliantly written characters and quirky storylines that keep us begging for more.

Before we get to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

“Arrested Development” (2003-06; 2013-)

“The Vampire Diaries” (2009-)

“One Tree Hill” (2003-12)

#1: “Friends” (1994-04)

“I’ll be there for you” with this smash hit sitcom that you can never possibly get tired of. This witty, and sometimes, heartbreaking series by David Crane and Marta Kauffman captures what it’s like to live in New York City among good friends. Whether you’re a fan of Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey or them all, it doesn’t matter. With so many relatable moments and characters, such as Ugly Naked Guy, and Janice and so on, this series keeps us wanting more. While its popularity, critical acclaim, and themes earned it over 60 Emmy nods, we really just love it because it reminds us what it means to have friends.
