Sometimes, the hardest part of marathoning a TV show is deciding what to watch. Do you go for the series your coworker swears you’ll love? Do you pick a genre you know you love, or switch it up and try something totally new? If you’re in the mood to binge watch a series, we can’t blame you. Here are a few suggestions for great series worth a complete viewing.
1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1997-2004 (The WB, UPN)
Number of seasons: 7
Series status: Complete
In the late ‘90s, The WB had the market on teen TV. But no show from that network has had a stronger following — or a longer-lasting legacy – than Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Based on the ill-fated film of the same name, the horror-drama series starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as the title character. The show’s tone ranges from scary to campy to emotionally devastating as The Chosen One fights demons, vampires, and high school horrors. Buffy the Vampire Slayer features stellar writing and wonderful performances from a tight ensemble of actors, including How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan and Bones’ David Boreanaz. If you love series that cross genres, you might love Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You can watch the entire series on Netflix or Amazon on Demand.
