Let’s Binge Watch Something
John and I are HUGE movie/tv show fans! In all honesty, we watch a wholeeeee lot of TV in our spare time. My favorite thing to do is kick back on a Saturday, cuddle up on the couch with John and the pups, and binge watch TV all day long. I know, I know – there are SO many other productive things I could be doing, but I enjoy TV and I enjoy that John and I like to do that together. It is also a way I can disconnect from my job, blogging, and social media. And when done well, great shows pull you into even greater stories and for a couple hours you may be caught up in the love triangle between Lucas, Peyton, and Brooke, having coffee at Central Perk, or wondering who the girl with the yellow umbrella is. (Can anyone relate? And if you know those references, we for sure would be best friends!
Let’s Binge Watch Something
Last weekend webinge watched every Fast and the Furious movie! Mostly because we have a guest(seen in this post) staying with us this month and he had NEVER seen them. WHHHHATTTT??? I don’t even know how that is possible, but we couldn’t let him leave until he watched all seven of them! (he loved them btw!)
Before we start listing our favorite shows to binge watch, the setup has to be perfect. And by setup I mean the temperature in the house has to be set low, the lights turned out, you need an overabundance of pillows and blankets and most of all….Snacks. We thought we would share some of our favorite binge watching snacks. Popcornopolis is our FAVORITE popcorn. We found them once at a Bucee’s (best gas station ever located in Texas) and now we always stop there just to get the cupcake popcorn flavor.
But looking online we saw that they also have a ton of other flavors that we wanted to try out. We got a little crazy and tried the Peanut Butter Cup, Cheddar Cheese, and Cinnamon Bun. Each one is extremely delicious and addicting. You know what they say “Once you POP(cornopolis), you can’t stop.” If that’s not a real saying it should be.
We also like to add a little bit of candy into our popcorn! Don’t judge, we have weaknesses people.
Lindsey’s Bowl: Cupcake popcorn, cheddar cheese, Sour Patch Kids, & Sour Worms.
John’s Bowl:Cupcake popcorn, Peanut Butter popcorn, Cinnamon Bun popcorn, topped with reese pieces and snow caps.
Now that you have basically created a cave with turning the lights out, getting pillows and blankets, getting the air just right and gathering your snacks,… let’s binge watch something! I love movies, but I am more into TV shows. So, I will be covering all my favorite TV shows. (in no particular order, because I. JUST. CAN’T put that kinda of pressure on myself to rank them hah! It would be like asking who your favorite child was, sure you may have one, but you sure as heck won’t say it out loud. They are all so GOOD, so I had to majorly condense this list – because we would be here for YEARS and we would rather be spending that time watching TV instead of listing.
- Sons of Anarchy
- Game of Thrones
- The Walking Dead
- Grey’s Anatomy
- Gilmore Girls
- The Vampire Diaries
- Prison Break (ONLY Season 1)
- How I Met Your Mother
- The Office
- Sex and the City
- One Tree Hill
- Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch
- New Girl

We are loving Suits right now! Of course pop corn is always needed 🙂

I loved reading this post! What a great idea! MY husband and I have binge watched The Office 3 times throughout the course of our 6 year relationship and I still can’t get enough. We also love Parks and Rec and recently took on a Netflix docuseries called Chef’s Table. We love watching food while eating food, haha!
Thank you SO much, Brittany!! haha US too!! We have re-watched the office several times!!! It is THE BEST. I’ll definitely go check out those shows! I have heard so much about Parks and Rec and haven’t watched it yet!
Okay, cinnamon bun popcorn?! You have just convinced me to get some to try!! Great list of shows too!!

Most of those are on my list of favorites! But let’s talk about your snacks…delicious!
haha! Thank you, Stefanie!
I was not aware of this cupcake popcorn! Must. Try. It.
You won’t be disappointed!! It’s sooooo good!
How fun! Our favorite show to binge watch is Game of Thrones. We didn’t start it until after season 4 ended, so we binge watched to get caught up by season 5. Now we like to watch the previous season before the next season starts. Looks like we have some time before the next one! When my husband is gone, I like to binge watch my trashy reality shows. Guilty!
Ahhh how fun!! I think that’s even a better way to watch GOT. Because, you can see it all unfold and won’t forget! I need to go back and do that. There is so much going on in that show. haha! I can totally relate to that! I do the same! LOL
These all look so good! So fun!
Thank you, Kelly! 🙂
I LOVED Prison Break! My husband and I watch all 80 episodes in roughly a few weeks! We’ve also binged Gilmore Girls, One Tree Hill, Law and Order: SVU, CSI: Las Vegas, and NCIS! We’ve watch a few other things, but these have been our favorites!
Wasn’t the first season THE BEST!!! Seriously, it has been one of my favorites. I love how he planned the whole thing and you see his whole plan unfold. I need to go back and rewatch! haha those are all great!!
That popcorn looks so delicious. I love binge watching too especially during the Summers when I’m off work.
Thank you! Yes, Summer is the best time to do that! Hope you are enjoying your Summer!
y’all are just the cutest!! Joel and I have been into binge watching movie series lately!! A few weeks ago we binge-watched all the Die-Hards! And before that, almost every Brat Pack movie out there!! A HUGE 80’s kick! It was so much fun!! And those snack! Holy cow!
haha thanks girl! Hope you guys are having a great time traveling! I have been loving following along with y’alls adventures! We love to do that too! Especially, if there is a new one coming out in the theaters soon! so fun!!
Oh my goodness. I need to try that popcorn. I wish I had time to watch TV but I usually just pop on whatever random stuff when I have time. My range is so spread out that watched a little of all kinds of shows lol.
haha! I hear that! I actually need to not watch so much LOL! You will love this popcorn. It is SOOOO good!
I’m currently binge-watching Harry Potter as I type! It’s probably my favorite movie series to veg out to. I love snacking on Boom Chicka Pop popcorn and dark chocolate.. mostly so I can try and justify my munchies. Great post! (:
We love Harry Potter!! How fun! We binge watched those before the last movie came out! haha! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
The confetti popcorn looks delicious. If you like Sons of Anarchy and Game of Thrones you might like the show Vikings. I think it’s both on Hulu and Netflix!
YES! I have heard of it, but haven’t watched it yet! I will definitely check that out! 🙂
What an amazing post!! I’m craving gummy worms now!! HA!
Thank you so much, Jessica! haha! They are so addicting!
Your pictures are so lovely! Makes me hungry, lol. My husband LOVES popcorn so I know he will want to try one of these. We are currently binge watching The Office as I never really watched it when it first came out, and we’re now laughing our way through the 4th season 🙂
Thank you so much! Yes, he will love the popcorn then! It is so good. OH man, we LOVE the office!! It is one of our all time favorite shows! So glad y’all are enjoying it!!
