15 Television Shows Perfect For Binge Watching

24: Redemption NYC Premiere - Screening

24 (First eight seasons available via Amazon Prime)

I’m a big believer in that 24 was the show that really started binge watching. Throughout each season of its run, the series was essentially an action movie for 24 straight episodes, and, especially during the earlier (and better seasons), was the type of show that viewers wanted to experience all at once, instead of waiting week to week. Now, with 24: Live Another Day airing its finale tonight after a creatively-inspired 12 episode resurgence, there’s no better time to get into 24 if you haven’t already. It’s certainly one of 15 shows perfect for binge watching – it essentially created it.
