The top 30 shows to binge while you’re working from home

Working from home is nothing new for me so I already know what many people are now trying to figure out like what to binge-watch during your at-home workday. It’s a delicate balance finding the right series to play in the background. It can’t be so complicated, or riveting, that you’ll stop actually working. But, it also has to be able to hold your attention without being too loud (action series with a lot of sound effects are a definite no) or too detail-oriented (Breaking Bad is another no). It has to be something that you can still follow without really looking at the screen. And, something that you can just let play all day. Think easy-to-follow procedurals, teen dramas, reality TV shows and docuseries, sitcoms, that type of thing.

Here’s my Top 30 series to binge while working from home:

1. Friday Night Lights (Amazon Prime)

2. Scandal (Netflix)
3. Sons of Anarchy (Hulu)
4. The O.C. (Hulu)
5. One Tree Hill (Hulu)
6. You’re The Worst (Hulu)

6. Cheer (Netflix)
7. Casual (Hulu)
8. Atypical (Netflix)
9. The Real Housewives (any city) (Hulu)
10. All Night (Hulu)

11. Shameless (Showtime)
12. Orange Is The New Black (Netflix)
13. Mindhunter (Netflix)
14. Making A Murderer (Netflix)
15. Transparent (Amazon Prime)
16. Love (Netflix)

17. The Fosters (Netflix)
18. Girls Incarcerated (Netflix)
19. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
20. I Am Not Okay WIth This (Netflix)
21. Grace and Frankie (Netflix)
22. The Bachelor (ABC)
23. Escape at Dannemora (Showtime)
24. The Act (Hulu)
25. Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO)
26. Manhunt (Spectrum)
27. Goliath (Amazon)

28. Mindy Project (Hulu)
29. Love is Blind (Netlfix)
30. Tiger King (Netflix)


  1. Friday Night Lights is one of the best shows. Period. However, season 4 is as rough as any episode of the Wire. With that being said, it a show that needs to be seen. Glad to see it’s getting the respect it deserves years after cancellation.

    One Tree Hill, though, is outright addictive. I came across it in real-time and quit sometime during season 2. Then I got sucked right back in. The first three seasons are the best, though.
