There are two types of people: those who only watch a series once and don’t want to see it again, and those who are a bit more flexible and enjoy the small things that make a series worth watching again. Whichever you are, here are five reasons to binge through a tv show all over again on Netflix.

  1. You realise you’ve forgotten things
    Ever given someone an example from a TV show and realised there’s a missing piece in your memory? The urge to remember drives you crazy and that’s what makes you watch one episode again. But one episode is never enough so you end up watching the entire series all over again and remember why you were hooked on it in the first place.
  2. There’s a new season coming
    If any of you are Gilmore Girls fans, you’ll probably know that there’s going to be a reunion season. So, what better reason is there to watch the other 7 seasons all over again? I don’t know about you, but I started watching Gilmore Girls a long time ago so my memory is quite hazy. Or perhaps it’s just a series like Better Call Saul that is linked to another, and you want to make those vital cross-links.
  3. The first season was the best
    It’s great when you know you’ve watched a show from beginning to end – watching the characters grow and get older, share their journey and see what they become. However, as with real life, when things have changed so much it’s easy to forget exactly how things were at the beginning. The best part is when you see such a difference in the way a character dressed, how much older they look or how they have changed their hair.
  4. You’re sharing it with someone else
    You couldn’t take your eyes off the screen. Every word echoed in your ears. The hairs on the back of your neck raised. You were devoted from start to finish. Now you want to share it with someone else… It was that good that you have no problem watching it a second time, trying not to let slip what happens. You know exactly when the good and bad parts are. Finally, you get to talk about the whole series with someone else. Result.
  5. Nostalgia
    Sometimes all you need to do is take a trip down memory lane. Everyone has that one series that they watch to cheer them up when they’re feeling down. No matter how many times you watch it, it never gets old because it’s the one that makes you feel sunny after feeling blue.

Get searching! There’s a lot more to Netflix than just the new series.

Here’s a list of just a few of the tv shows on Netflix that is worth the re-watch:

  • Gilmore Girls
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Lost
  • Extras
  • Fawlty Towers
  • Scrubs
  • Friends
  • The Office
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Orange is the New Black
