Friday Night Lights (Complete series available via Netflix)
What a gem this show is. Seriously, there are very few television shows out there that I would recommend more than Friday Night Lights, and there are even fewer shows that I would recommend to binge watch. I binge watched Friday Night Lights myself a couple of years ago, when I got all five seasons on DVD between Christmas time and my birthday in may. Each time I would pick up a new season of the show, I’d been done it in only a matter of days. That’s just how gripping and moving this series is. The town of Dillon and its characters feel like people taken from real life, and you can’t help but become glued to the TV, watching the struggles and successes of their lives with a look of a sheer awe on your face.
