Hit me with your favourite boxset/ TV series! 

I loved Sons Of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, The Good Wife, House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

I just got into Life in Pieces which I like and I am considering Vikings.

What are your favourite TV series and do you binge watch or take your time??

    'Only fools and horses' box set it literally brought me through a major clinical depression I know it's not a recent series but when I'm low I shut the world out and gravitate towards simple humour.
    Even old carry on films and yes I have the full box set oh dear how sad am I!! 

    When my mind is fidgety (as it can be when I've been overwhelmed, even just having to answer a phone call can do this) I gravitate towards simplicity, love nature box sets I'm sorry if this is a boring post!!

    Not boring or sad! I have all 10 series of Friends on a box set that I will rewatch over and over again.

    I am a netflix and amazon prime fan too so watch lots of things online.

    We know all the jokes we know all the one liners we know all the scenes.. but we still love watching it!

    Amazon prime a fab invention! 

    Thank you you for making me feel less 'sad'!!

    Friends box set is fab :) If you like this have you tried the Big Bang Theory? You might enjoy that

    My favourite box set @ the moment is Vikings so do give this series a try. If you like Game of Thrones (and who doesn't right :) - give Vikings a try

    Lots of great recommendations! +1 for Friends - I miss the days when it was constantly on E4!

    We've got Netflix at home - so The Good Wife, Breaking Bad and Orange is the New Black have all been great. Started House of Cards but never really got into it. We've now started watching The Crown which I'm really enjoying so far!

    For those with Netflix Jessica Jones is really good and the spinoff Luke Cage.

    I do not have a TV licence but there was one film series I got addicted to in my native language able to see on one of free internet platforms.

    The Wire, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos are a few of my favourites. Recently watched the first episode of Game of Thrones, somewhat belatedly lol
