10 TV Shows and Movies to Binge Watch on HBO Go

Posted -

HBO GO has been my go-to lately for binge watching TV shows and movies. I absolutely love how many new shows and movies are available and the fact that I can watch them through the HBO GO app on my Apple TV. HBO GO has the latest hit movies and TV shows before a lot of other streaming companies, and HBO GO gives me more of the biggest and latest movies first. HBO GO also gives me unlimited and instant access to all HBO series from addictive shows and hilarious comedies to big blockbusters and thought-provoking documentaries. If you need some shows and movies to watch instead of studying for midterms, here are my top 10 shows and movies to binge watch on HBO Go:

1. "Sex and The City"

"Sex and The City" is a classic series to binge watch literally whenever. Bored? Binge watch. Tired? Binge watch. Have a test the next morning? Binge watch. Watch as Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha navigate through relationships and life in NYC. "Sex and The City" is my all-time favorite TV series to watch. 

2. "Fifty Shades Darker"

Didn’t this movie like just come out? And it’s already on HBO Go? Yes, yes it is. I absolutely loved "Fifty Shades of Gray" and I loved "Fifty Shades Darker" even more. This movie is a staple for any date night with your SO or just a girl’s night in!

3. "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver"

I’ll admit, I don’t really watch the news that often (or at all). In fact, I don’t even have any new channels because I don’t have cable -- I just have HBO Go. But, HBO Go does have "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver", which is one of my favorite ways to stay up to date on national and worldwide news. John Oliver is creative and funny and always has me laughing during every episode. 

4. "Lights Out"

"Lights Out" is a really suspenseful horror/thriller to watch since it’s October. Watch this movie by yourself if you’re brave enough or with friends for a fun Halloween movie night!

5. "The Breakfast Club"

"The Breakfast Club" is a staple piece movie that will never get old. "The Breakfast Club" can be watched any day of the week and any time of the year. Everybody loves this classic 80's movie.

6. "Good Will Hunting"

Another classic I had to add to the list, because lets' just face it: older movies are better. "Good Will Hunting" is a great movie that has great meaning behind it. Definitely one to watch.

7. "Big Little Lies"

I just started watching this show and it is amazing! It’s so entertaining as well as relatable. Definitely a must watch.

8. "Game of Thrones"

You didn’t think I was going to leave "Game of Thrones" out, right? "Game of Thrones" has been everybody’s obsession ever since the series came out. If you haven’t already seen it, I highly recommend you do. It’s a great, captivating series with lots of twists and turns. 

9. "Silicon Valley"

Silicon Valley is a hilarious newish show, focusing on the lives of five guys who just started their own company in Silicon Valley, CA. Without HBO Go I would have never fallen in love with binge watching "Silicon Valley".  

10. "Why Him?"

My last pick to binge watch is "Why Him?" "Why Him?" is a great comedy to watch any night of the week. It’s a more recent movie that is super relatable to everyone – from dad’s to daughters, you’ll love this movie!
