Although ten seasons sounds like a lot, each episode is between twenty and twenty two minutes long so you can easily finish the entire series this Thanksgiving break!

2) Grey's Anatomy

Twelve years later and Meredith Grey is still a popular drama series surgeon. If you're a new Grey's fan, then go back and watch some of the early seasons about how Meredith and your other favorite characters became surgeons and what scandalous relationships they were in. Twelve seasons is definitely a lot to cover in the few days of Thanksgiving. So just watch a couple seasons that will get you reminded about who your favorite characters are.

3) Once Upon A Time

Ever wish you could relive your childhood dreams of being a princess? Then this show is for you. This dramatic fictional series is about all of your favorite disney characters including Snow White, Grumpy, and Belle and the conflicts they face with the popular villians like Cruella deVil and Rumpelstiltskin. If you are in the mood for a Disney movie but can't choose, then watch a couple seasons of Once Upon A Time to be in a fantasy mood.

4) Breaking Bad

If you love crime and suspense, then Breaking Bad is the perfect one for you to binge watch. In the six season series, a former chemistry teacher realizes that he cannot financially support his cancer treatment, wife, new baby and son with cerebal palsy. To put money in the bank, he decides to make and sell drugs. Enjoy the criminal suspense this show brings in six seasons during your break.
