5 Shows to Binge Watch During Winter Storm Jonas

Winter Storm Jonas - Long Island 2016

If you are anything like me, you love a good #netflixandchill session. (Sidenote: I just learned the real meaning behind the popular hashtag and when I say “chill”, I really mean “chill”…. as in… wearing my pajamas all day while binging on some Gilmore Girls and stuffing my face with snacks.) 

As most of the east coast is prepping for Winter Storm Jonas (not to be confused with Nick – who let’s be honest ladies – we’d take over this blizzard any day of the week.), I went to the grocery store during my lunch break to get some last minute essentials: chips, dip, cheese, cupcake mix, and eggs.

I came home with five grocery bags full of fantastic snacks and my husband takes one look at me and goes, “We don’t live in Washington D.C. – we are only getting around 8 inches of snow,” to which I replied, “I don’t care – I NEED TO BE PREPARED! I’m HUNKERING DOWN!”

So, in preparation for this epic blizzard, I wanted to share some of my favorite Netflix binge-worthy shows.

  1. Narcos – When my husband first told me about this one, I was skeptical. He warned me that I had to pay extra special attention to this show. Why, you ask? Because half the show is in subtitles! Fine – I’ll stop scrolling on the ‘gram and give it a try. The show is based on the criminal exploits of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. After two episodes, I was hooked.
  2. Gilmore Girls – Go ahead, laugh. Even though this show ended almost 10 years ago, I wanted to give it a go. I never watched it in real time, I probably was too busy with One Tree Hill or Beverly Hills 90210 or The O.C. to really care. I’m glad I gave it a chance – it brought me back to my high school and college days and I enjoyed the dynamic relationship between Lorelei and Rory. Also, Logan and Dean were pretty sweet to look at. #sorrynotsorry
  3. House of Cards – I am not into politics AT ALL. Never cared for them, don’t really enjoy talking about them, and shows which involve them never keep me interested for more than an episode or two (except Scandal because… I mean, do I even need to give a reason?) Kevin Spacey is absolutely FANTASTIC in this show. I think I gasp or cover my eyes in anticipation at least once every episode. He plays a Congressman who is real good at making people pay for betraying him.
  4. Chicago Med – I’m already obsessed with Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, so I had to give this one a go. They are only six episodes into season one, so there is plenty of time to catch up.
  5. Making a Murderer – Unless you have been living under a rock, you know which documentary I am talking about. It’s definitely a slow moving one, and may take a couple of episodes to really get into, but I promise it’s worth it.
