These are all the shows we're binge watching on Netflix right now.

You invest a lot of time and energy in a TV show, so it’s important to make the right choice. But with things like Netflix now, there are just sooo many choices.

How do you know you’re making the right choice? We don’t even know where to start.

I’ve suffered through one too many bad TV shows to fall into that trap again. My time could have been spent doing something better. Like washing my hair.

So we went straight to the experts, also known as Team Mamamia, because, let’s face it, no one watches more TV than we do.

These are the shows we’re currently binge watching on Netflix… We hope you weren’t planning on going out this weekend.

Conspiracy

“I’m loving this show called Conspiracy,” says Jessie.

“It’s about conspiracies, and now I believe that Hitler is alive, so, yeah.”

This show is a must-see and investigates some of the biggest conspiracy theories out there to see if there’s any truth behind them. We’re listening…

Mad Men

“My boyfriend and I have revisited Mad Men,” says Clare.

“I’ve seen it described as ‘#MeToo before #MeToo started’. It’s got a whole new relevance now.”

If you’ve never seen Mad Men, it’s a show about New York advertising executives in the 1960’s. Seriously, get into it!

Grace & Frankie

"I love this show!" says Charlie.

"It's so refreshing to see older women in leading roles where they play strong, funny, flawed characters. My mum loves it too, which is a bonus."

Having reached their twilight years, Grace and Frankie were looking forward to their husbands retiring so they could live out the rest of their lives like they'd always planned. But when their husbands come out to them, their lives take a twist.

Dynasty

"It's so over the top and ridiculous, but that's exactly why you get sucked in!" says Saengtip.

"Agreed. It's like Gossip Girl on steroids," adds Katia.

This new version is a reboot of the 1980's drama, but with just as many oh-no-she-didn't moments.

Ugly Delicious

"This is just a super funny, relaxed food show," says Amy.

Ugly Delicious follows chef David Chang as he travels around the world trying food from different cultures. #DreamJob

Wild Wild Country

"Wild Wild Country is a great new doco series," says Anika.

This show is the real-life story of a 1980's cult leader who set up shop in the Oregon desert, attracting a lot of pushback from the community. Seriously fascinating.

Schitt's Creek

"This is one of the funniest shows I have probably ever seen, and it is now one of my all-time favourites," says Demeter.

"I also found it a little too relatable, which is kind of worrying."

Schitt's Creek is about a dysfunctional upper class family, who after going broke, find themselves trading in their glamorous city lives for a small country town. Just watch it.

Collateral

"I'm really loving Collateral with Carey Mulligan," says Lize.

Set in London, the investigation into the murder of a pizza delivery guy reveals an entangled web spanning across several levels of British society. The suspense!

Chef's Table

"It's opened my eyes to the luxuries of food and given me a newfound respect for chefs," says Lauren.

"It's also now become my bucket list to eat at every one of these restaurants. Spoiler - one of them is not a restaurant at all, but a Buddhist temple. Whaaat?!"

This show deep dives into the work and lives of six of the world's most renowned chefs. Hat's off.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

"I've just started watching this show, and it's really funny and easy to binge on," says Fiona.

"And I have a bit of a soft spot for Andy Samberg."

This sitcom follows the hilarious exploits of a group of detectives in a Brooklyn police station, and while we're sure it's not even close to what happens in real life, we'll take it.

How to Get Away With Murder

"It might come in handy one day," says Franca.

This show is about a group of law students and their brilliant professor, as they become caught up in a murder. It's by the same people behind Grey's Anatomy and Scandal, so there's no shortage of drama here.

The Get Down

"Just for the soundtrack if nothing else. Had me groovin' my pants off," says Anna.

"OMG, The Get Down was so good! I'd forgotten about that show," adds Amy.

"It's so cool that it's based on real influencers of hip hop - Grandmaster Flash, DJ Kool Herc... I want to jump into that TV show and live in that world!" says Saengtip.

Sadly, this show about the Bronx's 1980's hip hop scene was axed after just one season, but it's still worth the watch. Baz Luhrmann is one of the geniuses behind it, and it's got all of his trademark theatrical flare.
