For Your Rest Day | Binge-Watchable Series


We all have them.

Those days when you can’t get off the sofa and you just need a series you can binge watch until your takeaway pizza arrives.

Well, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Here's a list of long-ass series that should never have ended because they are wonderful, but they did, and I am sad.

Mad Men

Set in the 1960s, Mad Men is stunningly stylish. 

Mad Men Follows Don Draper and his three-piece suits, unsettling smoulder, beautiful family, numerous affairs, and ability to drink his way through the day. 

The show follows the lives of those who work within the advertising agency in which Don also works. 

It’s sleek, funny, sad, interesting and also shines a light on social mores at the time, such as; gender equality, racism, alcoholism and even smoking… 

With seven seasons and 92 episodes, there’s more than enough to keep you occupied.

It’s available on Netflix now, or buy the box set here!


Look, it’s a classic.

Also, if you haven’t heard of it - have you been living under a rock!?

Friends follows three young men and three young women as they live their lives in New York City within the same apartment complex.

It’s funny, easy watching, and it goes on for 10 seasons with 236 episodes. Your rest day weekend is sorted… for a while.

Oh, and this is the original promo below... 

Desperate Housewives

God, I love this show. 

Based in the fictional town of Fairview on Wisteria Lane, Desperate Housewives follows the lives of four women after the suicide of their friend, Mary Alice. 

It is a comedy-drama and lots of people come and go throughout the seasons, but it’s hilarious and incredibly written. 

With 8 seasons (IT WASN’T ENOUGH) and 180 episodes your day on the sofa is covered.

Parks And Recreation 

I feel like this show is just the definition of understated and dry humour. 

Parks and Recreation is an American political satire sitcom (what a mouthful), that follows Leslie Knope, a bureaucrat in the Parks department of Pawnee (a fictional town in Indiana).

It’s funny, kind of heart-warming, and features a young (not so famous at the time) Chris Pratt. 

With 7 seasons and 125 episodes, you can watch and sort of not concentrate whilst still getting the gist of it.

The Office 

I was going to stick to one version of the office, but in all honesty, both the UK and US version are great. 

So, the UK version is the original, and it’s a mockumentary following the day-to-day lives of the employees in the fictional office of Hogg Paper Company. 

The US version follows exactly the same premise, they just work in the fictional office of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. 

They’re both hilarious, and they’re both great for binge watching. The UK series has only 2 seasons, whereas the US version has 9, so you’re pretty set for Sunday watching. 

Buy the UK box set here, and the US box set here.
