5 shows you should binge watch right now

I've always been into my TV, but the introduction of Netflix has taken things to a whole other level in our household! I generally prefer US shows to British ones so having even more at my fingertips is leading to many a weekend camped in front of the telly. Here are my current faves:

1. Parks & Recreation - Didn't you know it's Amy Poehler week here on Tea-Books-Eyeliner?! Only kidding, but if you've yet to get into this amazingly funny, heart-warming show it's about time you gave it a shot! The show is a documentary-style comedy that follows the ups and downs of a group of people working in the Parks & Recreation department of Pawnee, Indiana City Council - think The Office with even more silliness and shinanigans. The show is now in its seventh and final season, is full of amazing comedy talent with countless celeb cameos, and I can honestly say I'll cry when it's over.

2. Luther - Apart from Silent Witness, I've never really been into British crime dramas, but I'd heard a lot of good things about Luther. I wasn't disappointed and am now deep into the show and totally hooked. I've found myself shouting at the TV on multiple occasions and am also now petitioning for the amazingly foxy Idris Elba to be the next James Bond.

3. Supernatural - I used to watch this show on Sky Living until it was unexpectedly taken off air, but it's now back on E4 on Tuesdays and I couldn't be happier. If you're behind there are DVDs available or you can cheekily find all 9 previous seasons online if you're so inclined. A definite favourite for Sci-Fi fans, the show follows two (seriously attractive) brothers as they come to terms with their parents' deaths at the hands of a demon and battle against all kinds of evil creatures on their mission to shut Hell out once and for all.

4. Mythbusters - Mat and I always watch this when we're not in the mood for the stress of Luther and can't decide what else to watch. These guys are hilarious and it's perfect binge viewing. You'll also get a few science lessons and useless knowledge injections in the process.

5. Chicago PD - One for all the One Tree Hill/Sophia Bush fans out there, this crime drama runs alongside Chicago Fire and you'll even see characters crossing over from time to time. It's really well written, which is rare for this kind of show in the US, and each character is so complex that there's never a dull moment.
