TV & Film
13 September 2017
Welcome to the Showpo binge fest.
After a busy AF few months since the Christmas break, we’re looking forward to stocking the fridge with snacks, snuggling up in something woolly, and absorbing more TV than when we were kids watching Simpsons marathons.
There’s so much dang choice with what to watch these days (thank you Netflix, iTunes, STAN, Foxtel and FTA) so we’ve rounded up 48 office faves to rewatch or add to ‘watch later’ list. ENJOY!
Reason to watch… Phenom characters and a never-ending storyline that just keeps getting better. Come at me S14!
Reason to watch… So underrated, this show is the cutest and all the characters become your new pals.
Reason to watch… Stephen Merchant is a comedic genius and I have no idea why this show didn’t take off more. It’s so cringe you’ll be crying with laughter.
Reason to watch… Every mythical character from your childhood in one show, the ‘Delena’ love story and countless hot dudes without shirts on.
Reason to watch… Annoying AF but RIVETING, so addictive you’ll curse the creators. Also Shay Mitchell’s hair.
Reason to watch… The characters and the warm fuzziness they bring. The writing is so witty you’ll watch 10 eps without stopping.
Reason to watch… #drama SO. MUCH. #drama – Who doesn’t love to take a trip down the Upper East Sides brattiest and most affluent teens.
Reason to watch… If you’re a sucker for teen #drama and reality TV, this is for you!
Reason to watch… #drama or old school #drama if we’re being honest. Nothing will make me as nostalgic as Sandy Cohen’s eyebrows.
Reason to watch… It’s changed the landscape of TV and how women are portrayed. Beautifully written, it’s funny while also highlighting important issues.
Reason to watch… Spin-off series of Grey’s Anatomy. Really great characters and medical storylines if you’re into that shit.
Reason to watch… Viola Davis’ snotty acting at her best. Plus tense AF storylines with a bunch of bitchy characters.
Reason to watch… All of the LOLs. Jay, Neil, Simon and Will’s hilarious escapades will have you holding your belly with laughter.
Reason to watch… Sex, drugs, poverty and alcoholism all rolled into the best family dramedy (in my opinion) ever written.
Reason to watch… The cleverest comedy show that’s ever been written, blink for a second and miss 5 jokes. Brilliant characters.
Reason to watch… It’s full of so many twists and surprises – you’ll be kept in major suspense and hours will pass without you realising.
Reason to watch… OLIVIA POPE’S WARDROBE. Plus, you’ll feel really smart and ‘know-it-all’ when it comes to American politics.
Reason to watch… Is there any other light sitcom you can rely on to always make you smile? Re-watching eps is like catching up with old… well, friends.
Reason to watch… The dialogue, the clothes, the complete lack of reality and fuzzy #girlpower feels.
Reason to watch… It’s a drama and crime show rolled into one. Kinda sick but also awesome, it will have you anxious with apprehension
Reason to watch… There’s nothing better than loud, awkward, New York women who don’t give a shit. But basically, it’s just stupidly funny.
Reason to watch… Tim Riggens.
Reason to watch… Hot men and women trapped on a deserted island with shitloads of #drama – what’s not to love.
Reason to watch… The women’s stories! Plus all the prison bewbs.
Reason to watch… Walter White is the most badass character ever written. Prepare to be sucked into the vortex of drug cartels messing with the wrong science teacher.
Reason to watch… You’ll fall in love with Jax Teller.
Reason to watch… It’s like morphing into this twisted American time warp. It has a bit of mystery, bit of drama, bit of cheesy music and the stories are always so intricately put together. Also, the powerhouse female lead is a total badass and doesn’t take shit from anyone.
Reason to watch… It’s so OTT, it’s everything.
Reason to watch… Each episode is brilliant in its own right and to this day the topics are totally relatable and relevant. It’s wild to think they didn’t have mobile phones back then, but the content never seems old-fashioned.
Reason to watch… This show is the female version of Entourage, set in a publishing agency; very millennial… oh and Josh is SO hot.
Reason to watch… You can relate yourself to the characters and your friendships to theirs. It’s just so funny and easy to watch.
Reason to watch… All of the family drama, relationship drama, and dude drama you could hope for in one show.
Reason to watch… The chemistry between the characters is SO good and really well acted.
Reason to watch… Such an intense show with amazing storylines.
Reason to watch… It’s bach. Why shouldn’t you watch it? Guilty viewing at its best.
Reason to watch… It’s a mockumentary BTS of The Bachelor. And it’s amazing.
Reason to watch… Salem, psychiatric asylums, haunted houses or carnivals; whatever nudges your fear-factor, this show has ou covered. Such cool stories and well-played characters.
Reason to watch… If you’ve always loved Batman, this is a really fresh, interesting take on the original story.
Reason to watch… Hot witches killing demons and dealing with their weird love life issues. How could you not love it?!
