What We’re Binging

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and scarf season is officially here. Chilly evenings are the perfect excuse to stay in, sip something warm, and binge on some must-see TV. From old favorites, to Netflix originals and everything in between, see below for the shows we can’t get enough of.

Jack Ryan

“I totally binged on the new Amazon series Jack Ryan. I was very skeptical of John Krasinski as an “action hero” but he was excellent. The first installment is only 8 episodes…easy for a lazy Sunday. I can’t wait for round two!” – Nicole


“Directed by and starring Jason Bateman, Ozark is a new offering to the theme perfected by Breaking Bad- the decent of an everyday “good guy” into the dark underground of the drug trade. Moody cinematography, stellar acting, and multi-dimensional female characters make the hour-long episodes feel too short.” – Sofia

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is currently in its 14th season on FXX. Unlike most television shows, each season gets better and funnier with the gang, who is comprised of Dennis, Dee, Mac, Charlie and Frank. The show is set in South Philadelphia and this season the gang they discuss current happenings in and around Philadelphia such as, the Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl, the Pride Parades, technology crisis and more.”- Olivia

Chef’s Table

“Warning: do not watch while hungry! Chef’s Table on Netflix is a documentary series showcasing the world’s best chefs redefining the industry. It is inspiring, mouth-watering and binge-worthy. Plus, Philly Chef, Cristina Martinez of South Philly Barbacoa is featured in Season 5!” – Jill

This is Us

Like the rest of America, I’m still loving This is Us, which continues to deliver tear-jerking episodes every Tuesday night (though I admit, I watch On Demand over the weekend whenever Mason is napping!). The characters are relatable and lovable, and the storylines seem to tackle pretty much the entire gamut of life, love, family, self-discovery – you name it! – Laura


“Sam, an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum, decides it’s time to find a girlfriend, a journey that sets Sam’s mom on her own life-changing path as her son seeks more independence. A typical is not only a learning experience but Sam’s family can make you both laugh and cry. They are realistic and entertaining, and Sam is hilarious!” – Nora


“Maniac on Netflix is a new limited-series with Emma Stone, Jonah Hill and Justin Theroux about a group of strangers who connect during a pharmaceutical trial. It’s very different from most shows I watch (sitcoms, anyone?!), but who can turn down 10 episodes of Jonah Hill and Emma Stone on the same screen?” – Alyssa

The Voice

“The Voice is back this fall for its 15th season! With new judge Jennifer Hudson and returning judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson, the show is not only packed with talent but will make you laugh & keep you entertained all season.” -Deepika

American Horror Story

“Let’s be real, I’m holding out for the (night) king of all premiers… WINTER IS officially COMING spring 2019 with the return of Game of Thrones. Until then, you’ll find me cozied up with a box of tissues and bowl of Halo Top watching This Is Us and with one eye open on my spooky fave, American Horror Story.”– Alex

Eastbound and Down

“This is an old show I’m just catching on to, but I just finished watching the fourth season of Eastbound & Down starring Danny McBride. I love anything with Will Ferrell-style humor, so this one was binge-worthy. Most looking forward to shows for fall and winter are The Crown and catching up on Orange is the New Black’s latest season.” – Megan

The Haunting of Hill House

“I just started the new Netflix show, The Haunting of Hill House. I love the fall, Halloween time, and a good scary movie or show. I’ve heard it’s terrifying and I can’t wait.”  – Allie

The Marvelous Ms. Maisel

“The TV show I’m watching is “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” – the main character is a funny, witty and smart woman who’s forging an unconventional career path for herself in the 1950’s. It’s funny, has a lot of heart and lots of #GirlPower.” – Liz

Ray Donovan

In between the final season of House of Cards and the new Making a Murderer season, I’’ll be keeping up with Ray Donovan on Sunday nights, Starring Liev Schreiber and Susan Sarandon.” – Michelle
