Shows and Snacks Perfect for Shameless Bingeing

Our relationship with Netflix is that of a special one. We cuddle up with our laptops and tablets, snack at hand, ready to let addiction take over self-preservation, and finally, allow a night of much needed bingeing to unravel. With the right snack paired with an equally tasty show, we are left questioning why going out was even an option in the first place. So, naturally APN staffers comprised a list of their go-to television shows and snacks for nights when self-love outweighs lingering obligations.


Grey’s Anatomy + Sushi

Grey’s Anatomy follows the life of Seattle Grace Hospital’s finest surgeons as they try their best to balance a high-pressure workload and ever-changing, twisty-turny relationships. If you enjoy crying over fictional characters, look no further. Through extraordinary dialogue and frequent disaster, you’ll find yourself falling in love with (or loving to hate) each intern, resident and attending. However, be warned: Shonda Rhimes’ Wikipedia page occupation was recently changed (by a fan) from “producer” to “life ruiner.” It’s just that good.

The Scott brothers are two men who will steal your heart. Half brothers, Nathan and Lucas, try to figure out their different lifestyles while juggling basketball, school, friends and romance. The cast is filled with new characters entering at the same rate characters disappear, keeping you inevitably on your toes. With nine seasons on Netflix, this show will always be there to keep your eyes and your emotions glued to your screen.

If you aren’t familiar with FBI agents Scully and Mulder, now is the time to get acquainted. The duo, although starkly different in their paranormal beliefs, investigate conspiracies within the U.S. government among other unworldly phenomenons. Although the show doesn’t unravel as a series (each show starts with a different case) there’s something about the opening theme song that is as mesmerizing as Mulder’s  (David Duchovny) corny dialogue to Scully (Gillian Anderson).

During her time in Bluebell, she finds a best friend in the mayor, Lavon Hayes (Cress Williams), all the while falling in love with two people; George Tucker (Scott Porter) and Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel). Zoe slowly learns the ways of small-town life, starts to make friends other than just Lavon and finds her place in Bluebell, all while doctoring her patients.

If you like plot-twists, surreal characters and brainteasers, then Lost is perfect for you. Picture this: survivors of a plane crash are forced to work together in order to survive on a remote island. Right off the bat, you can’t help but pop a bottle of wine and dissolve into your couch for hours on end. Uncovering hidden secrets of the island turns into an obsession; the plot makes you crave more and more. Complement your wine with cheese for extra suspense.

Matt Murdock lost his sight at a young age and his mother even earlier, but still went on to become an incredible lawyer with his best friend, Franklin ‘Foggy’ Nelson. Murdock’s one driving force to bring justice to the streets of Hell’s Kitchen started when his father, a semi-famous boxer, refused to throw a fight and was killed for it. 

So now, Murdock protects those who need the law by day, and thanks to training from a mysterious man, turns to a vigilante that all fear by night. They call him: The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.
