10 TV Shows to Binge Watch as a Couple in 2021

Tired of scrolling endlessly and not finding something to watch? We have been there too! Here are shows to binge watch as a couple.

1. Game of Thrones (HBO)

After a rather slow start, this medieval fantasy show picks up the pace and keeps you glued for 8 seasons. Scoring a whooping 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, this is a show that will make you go, “whoa, I have been living under a rock.” If you are in Kenya, you can find it streaming on Showmax. PS: This is the show that we binged the most during our long distance relationship.

2. Bridgerton (Netflix)

When we heard that Shonda Rhimes was behind this London regency show, we knew it was going to be worth the wait. The instrumental music, drama, romance and scandal was beautifully wrapped into 8 episodes. We are still swooning over the Duke of Hastings. Netflix confirmed that a Season 2 of Bridgerton is in the works and set for release in 2022.

3. Bones (Hulu)

For all crime and forensic lovers. The show solves crime using the remains of victims. We love the chemistry between Bones and Booth. I loved watching this show while in high school and when I introduced LJ to it, he was hooked. What’s better? Bones has got 12 seasons and a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Most TV shows are unable to keep such a loyal viewership.

4. You (Netflix)

How far would you go for the love? How much are you willing to do to keep the one you love? This physiological thriller is dangerously charming and addictive. We were completely transfixed while watching this. You has 3 seasons and a 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

5. Sex Education (Netflix)

This show knew its mission and delivered. The show is witty and funny while also being educative and mature. The cast is superb and the show allows each character to truly express their identity. We finished season 2 in one date night. Sex Education has 2 seasons and a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

6. How To Get Away With Murder (Netflix)

HTGAWM is a legal thriller drama that revolves around Annalise Keating, a criminal defense lawyer, and five students. The show is extremely well written and has a very captivating way of telling a story. This is one of those shows that will give you closure at the end of every season.

Viola Davis’ acting was captivating throughout the show. She was nominated for Best Actress in Television Series – Drama at the Golden Globe Awards. In September 2015, she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. HTGAWM has 6 seasons and a 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

7. Suits (Netflix)

This show never gets boring. In addition to a really great cast, suits is unlike any other legal shows that we have watched. Suits is one of those shows that you will need to enforce a “Do not watch without me” rule. The tv show has 9 seasons and scores 87% on Rotten Tomatoes.

8. Star-Trek Discovery (Netflix)

As someone who refuses to watch the other Star Trek movies due to outdated CGI, I found refuge in this tv show. As I have not watched previous Star Trek shows or films, I found ST-Discovery very entertaining. Our favourite thing about it is that it does not have the “we save the day at the end of each episode” kind of vibe. The show starts off slow but give it a few episodes and you will be reeled in.

9. Billions (ShowTime)

Billions follows a battle between Hedge Fund Manager, Bobby Axelrod and a cut-throat US attorney Chuck Rhoades. Season 5 went on a production break due to the pandemic but is set to resume on January 2022. LJ and I have our calendars set for the complete release of Season 5. We absolutely love the dialogue between Axelrod and Chuck. Gets us, every time.

10. Kim’s Convenience (Netflix)

A lovely and light hearted feel good show. While our plan was to watch an episode a day, we binged the entire show in 3 days. The show follows a Korean-Canadian family that runs a convenience store in Toronto, Canada. The show perfectly captures their day to day lives. This show is witty, funny and 100% relatable. The best part – a whole 5 seasons!

Stauts: On going

Thats all from us on shows to binge. Are there any shows you like to binge watch with your partner? Let me know. LJ and I are always in the market for new Tv Shows. All my love.
