30 Rock
30 Rock

Paul Drinkwater/NBC Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, and Tracy Morgan.

If you've ever wondered what it's like to work at Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey created 30 Rock based on her experiences there. Starring Fey as the painfully relatable Liz Lemon, the head writer of a late-night sketch comedy series, the NBC classic sitcom follows her daily struggles dealing with the antics of the painfully self-unaware and vain actors like Tracy Jordan and Jenna Maroney, arrogant boss Jack Donaghy, and a writing staff determined to make her lose her mind. Come for the meta-commentary on making a TV show, stay for the hilariously wacky situations Liz gets herself into at work, at home, and all over New York City.

Alias

ABC

One of the most iconic spy thrillers to ever air on TV, Alias was created by J.J. Abrams and starred Jennifer Garner in her career-making turn as Sydney Bristow, a.k.a. the woman who could do anything. From turning double agent to taking down an evil organization posing as the CIA to saving the world time and time again, Sydney was Superwoman without any superpowers. And she did it all while maintaining a secret identity… and remembering that Francie doesn't like coffee ice cream!

Animal Kingdom

ANIMAL KINGDOM
ANIMAL KINGDOM

Eddy Chen/TNT

This dark and twisted family crime series makes a solid binge — with five seasons of gritty drama, Animal Kingdom hooks you instantly and never lets you go. The TNT series follows the SoCal crime family the Codys led by matriarch Smurf (Ellen Barkin), after her daughter dies of an overdose and her estranged grandson comes to live with them, learning the ins and outs of their illegal activities along the way. It's safe to say this show is as addicting as some of the Codys' favorite activities, if you catch our drift.

Patrick Harbron/FX

Former CIA officer Joe Weisberg's FX series redefined what it meant to subvert expectations when the espionage period drama debuted and made you root for the Russian spies living in American during the Cold War. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys starred in The Americans as two Soviet deep-cover agents posing as a married couple, living in Washington, D.C. with their unsuspecting, American-born children. And while their ruthless espionage exploits were fascinating to watch, it was their compelling day-to-day life as a married couple that made this a critical hit.

Bones

This crime procedural starring Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz found the perfect mix of comedy and drama as it followed the unlikely team-up of forensic anthropologist of Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan and FBI special agent Seeley Booth. That's why Bones ran for a whopping 12 seasons on Fox! Creator Hart Hanson based the series off of the very real relationship the FBI has with the scientists at the Smithsonian as Bones and Booth worked together to solve murders — and, of course, grew closer as their working relationship turned into something more. Come for the graphically decaying bodies and science versus faith debates, stay for the sizzling sexual tension between Bones and Booth.

This Amazon original series is based on Michael Connelly's best-selling novels, and Connelly brought the onscreen adaptation of Bosch to life as well.

The Boys

The Boys Ep 101
The Boys Ep 101

Jan Thijs/Amazon Prime

Eric Kripke's adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's edgy comic series The Boys pulled no (super-powered) punches. This Amazon original series, executive-produced by Kripke, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg, follows the extremely graphic nature of the comics as it tells the story of a world where superheroes exist, but instead of accepting that with great power comes great responsibility, they are completely corrupted by power. Only a blue-collar team of ruffians are the ones who keep them in check — even if that means disemboweling or dismembering them. Superhero fatigue has nothing on this violent, NSFW rampage that exposes the seedy underbelly of what superheroes would really be like.

Watch The Boys on Amazon Prime Video here.

Talent: Jack Quaid, Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg

Jan Thijs/Amazon Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne in 'Carnival Row.'

If the made-for-nerd fantasy world names Rycroft Philostrate and Vignette Stonemoss don't immediately scare you away, then Carnival Row may be the perfect binge for you! This Amazon Prime Video original series stars Orlando Bloom in his first major TV role as well as Cara Delevingne in a show that's equal parts fairytale fantasy, romance, and murder mystery procedural. The first season is streaming now and a second season has been ordered.

Chuck

Another great espionage show worth checking out is Chuck, albeit for very different reasons. Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak's NBC series lands more on the comedy side of the genre spectrum. Starring Zachary Levi in his career-making turn as the nerdy, awkward, IT guy Chuck Bartowski, the cult-classic series begins when he accidentally downloads thousands of encrypted images containing the combined secrets of the CIA and NSA into his brain, making him the most important asset to both government agencies. Watching Chuck evolve from a hapless fish out of water thrown into life-or-death situations into a super spy in his own right is just one of the many joys of this cult classic show. Watching him and his CIA handler Sarah Walker develop feelings for each other is even better.

Created by Julian Fellowes, this period drama charmed British and American viewers equally.

Graeme Manson and John Fawcett's BBC series will leave you wondering: did they really clone series star Tatiana Maslany? The acting phenom plays more than five different characters, each more distinctive and different than the last, in this sci-fi series about the moral, ethical, and psychological implications of cloning. The five-season drama begins when Sarah Manning witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks exactly like her. She assumes the woman's identity and slowly uncovers the shocking truth about her own life — and that of all the other clones of her in the world.

Ladies and gentleman, we present the show that turned an American actress into actual British royalty! Yes, the legal drama Suits is what introduced Meghan Markle to the world.

When this teen supernatural reboot was first announced, people laughed it off. A modern-day retelling of Michael J. Fox's 1985 campy movie? There was no way it was going to be anything less than a joke. Then MTV debuted Jeff Davis' new series starring Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien, and everyone was proven wrong. Teen Wolf was dark, sexy, hilarious, and downright terrifying as it found new ways to give you nightmares all while making you root for the star-crossed relationships and best friendships at the center of it all.

Vikings is basically the Game of Thrones for — you guessed it! — Vikings. The perfect intersection between historical fiction and fantasy, this long-running History series created by Michael Hirst is inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok and the Norse warriors of the 13th century. But don't expect a snoozefest history lesson; all six seasons are violently action-packed, full of breathtaking drama, and will hook you from the start. Beware, this binge is savagely addictive.

Thinks Lost combined with My So-Called Life with a splash of Lord of the Flies but centered on teen girls and you've got this Prime Video original series The Wilds. The first season of this beautifully shot and tense drama is part survival drama, part dystopian slumber party as The Wilds follows a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a mysterious deserted island. As the castaways grapple with their new dire circumstances, they both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they've all endured. But what they don't know is the biggest twist of all: these girls did not end up on this island by accident.
