With Christmas break upon us, you might be wondering how to spend the time. Why spend it with family or even catching up on assignments when you could get into a new show, or even rewatch a favorite? These are five shows you might want to binge over holiday break.

Gossip Girl

If you haven’t already seen this iconic series you might be living under a rock. Rich, privileged kids living on the Upper East Side with a whole lot of drama mixed in. Not to mention the season three Thanksgiving episode is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. 

Where to Watch: HBO MAX


With the recent release of season three, we get to watch Joe and Love enjoy domesticated ‘bliss’. Whether you have yet to see the hit Netflix show or are an avid viewer, starting from the beginning can be a great binge. Not to mention that each season only has ten episodes total, making it fairly digestible to watch.

Tiger King 

If being around your family is giving you flashbacks to quarantine 2020 then the second season of Tiger King might be the perfect pastime. If you missed out on season one of the insane documentary series you can watch the first eight episodes to start. However, do be cautioned if you’re sensitive to violence.

Scream Queens 

This ‘horror’ show encapsulates everything you could want in a series: sorority girls, a bathtub birth, and a serial killer. If you miss school while home, the fictional Wallace University will help you reminisce. Not to mention the star-studded cast including Nick Jonas, KeKe Palmer and Ariana Grande.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians

All good things must come to an end and unfortunately this remained the case with the iconic 2000s show. If your family is stressing you out take the opportunity to watch some Kardashian drama. Whether it’s the fight over the Bentley or Khloe serving under three hours in jail, the Kardashians never fail to entertain.
