My Favourite Guilty Pleasure TV Shows

guilty pleasure quote

I love pop culture. I am an avid consumer of books, movies, TV shows.  It’s hard to binge watch shows on a sick day when you have to go through the rigmarole of downloading them illegally first.

And then Netflix and Stan came.

They changed my life seriously. At least my sick day life anyway. No more getting up to change discs, just that judgy message asking me if I’m still watching.  Just pure guilty pleasure TV shows.

All. Damn.Day

Anything Based on a YA Novel

Preferably with supernatural overtones like The Vampire Diaries/The Originals or ShadowHunters but hey, I’ll watch Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars too. Not fussy over here. There is something about the overwrought storylines that are perfect for staying up late when I should be sleeping.

Jane The Virgin

This is a recent favourite that was gifted to me by the Netflix gods. They declared I might enjoy it and lo they were correct. I love the over the top soapy storylines and the fact that it has his tongue firmly in its cheek.


My husband introduced me to Entourage when we first started dating and I maintain it is Gossip Girl for dudes.  Ergo I love it. Also Sloan is way too hot for E.


Great music, hilariously over dramatic. Its like The Real Housewives only more believable. Now with more backstabbing and drink throwing.


I’m not even sure I should put this here because I’m not even ashamed of it. It’s a fantasy musical for crying out loud. Its just awesome.  I’ve watched it so many times I can sing the songs by heart.

  1. So you are the second person to mention this Galavant and I have never heard of it! Think I need to check it out!
    I haven’t joined the Stan or Netflix craze yet. Am sure it’s only a matter of time! I am currently binge watching Orange is the new Black and loving it!!

    1. I really just started watching a lot of it again when I had a baby. Anything to keep me awake on the couch at 2am 🙁

  2. We have Netflix but only watch TV on it – I think we’re reluctant to get into any series as we know we don’t have that much time. At the moment my two fave shows are The Tribe, and One Born Every Minute, not really trashy TV though!

  3. I love Shadowhunters too. I’m not impressed with the whole releasing one episode a week though. I found a new weird crime show called Crossing Lines the other day. It’s about an international crime squad and the different accents are divine.

  4. I’m a late comer to Netflix but now I don’t know how I lived without it! I also loved Jane the Virgin. It was so over the top but I loved every second of it. Also on the other end of the spectrum Orange is the new black, awesome!

    1. I discovered on a sick day and spent two days of tonsillitis watching it all. Can’t wait for the next season!!!
