You can watch drama and thrillers, as well as the lighter side such as comedy and romance. I have also watched a ton of sports programmes which are epic, and I’ll feature those too.

Some of these shows are still on going, some have just finished or started their current seasons, and some are now finished.

These days we have so many ways to watch box sets: SKY, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Apple TV+, Disney+ and free box sets from the likes of BBC iPlayer ITV and Channel 4. Even Discovery are getting in on the action, with Discovery+ having some binge-worthy shows.

Here’s the best TV series to binge watch this year (so far!), they are so addictive to watch and if you’re looking for the best streaming TV series, you’ll find one here.

Get yourself some food and drinks, sit back, you’re going to be entertained for hours.

The Best Box Sets & Series On Sky TV

There’s so many great shows on Sky, many of which you can catch up on if you’ve missed them first time round.

Channels including Sky Showcase, Sky Max, Sky Atlantic, Sky Comedy and Sky Documentaries are the home to some of the biggest shows from the UK, US and abroad.

If you’ve heard of some great shows on HBO and Showtime in the U.S.A, you’ll find them on Sky.

Here’s some of the best series on Sky you can watch right now.

The Last Of Us

The Last Of Us TV Series

An epic post apocalyptic drama, The Last Of Us is brand new for 2023. Set 20 years after a global pandemic that was caused by a fungal infection. those who are infected turn into zombie like creatures who spread the infection further by biting those who are uninfected.

Adapted from the PlayStation game of the same name, this is a really gripping show that you can get into and watch one after the other to see what happens.

I definitely recommend watching this if you want a good drama, you don’t need to have played the game to enjoy it.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Length: 1 Hour – 1.5 Hours
Number Of Seasons: 1
Number Of Episodes: 9

A Town Called Malice

A Town Called Malice TV Show Sky Max

For a bit of 80’s retro drama, A Town Called Malice is a great watch. It’s all about the Lord’s, a gangster family from London, who end up on Spain’s Costa Del Sol after Gene and Cindy flee there.

This one was a bit of a slow burner when I watched it, but it does pick up as the episodes go on, and it’s a great watch if you like a dramatic crime thriller. Set in the 80’s with a fantastic soundtrack, it’s definitely worth the watch.

Channel: SKY Max
Length: 1 Hour
Number Of Seasons: 1

Dreamland TV Show Sky

A really easy watch, Dreamland is British comedy series starring Freema Agyeman as Trish and Lily Allen as Mel based on the Sky Arts short Morgana Robinson’s Summer.

The two sisters couldn’t be more different, with Trish a family woman and Mel a free spirit. But when Mel returns home there’s a few turn of events.

Overall this is a really good watch, it’s only around 30 minutes long so it’s really easy to binge watch. The setting of Margate makes it really appealing to watch, the seaside town makes a great backdrop.

Euphoria Sky Atlantic

I love Euphoria, It has fast become my favourite TV show. Started in 2019, halted because of the pandemic, 2 specials followed in 2021 with season 2 finishing in 2022.

The show is a coming of age kind of series, set around high school kids discovering themselves. It’s very hard hitting and edgy, and is all about drugs, sexuality, sex and the other dramas which circulate around old teens in the modern day.

It’s a brilliant show, and if you haven’t already seen it, you should catch up starting from the beginning. It’s a bit of a slow burner, but you’ll be glad you invested your time.

Euphoria is a show and series which comes highly recommended.

It’s been 2 years since series 2 aired! They say that Euphoria series 3 will be filmed in 2024, with a release date of 2025.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Length: 1 Hour (1 hour 10 mins including ad breaks)

Funny Woman TV Series Sky

Set in the 60’s Funny Woman is a show based around working class girl and Blackpool Belle Barbara Parker (Gemma Arterton), who goes to London as she believes she’s destine for something bigger and better. This comedy drama has just started, but it’s such a good watch.

If you’re into pop culture and want to get a glimpse of life in the 60’s, it’s worth a watch.

Channel: SKY Showcase/Sky Max
Length: 1 Hour
Number Of Seasons: 1
Number Of Episodes: 6


Brassic TV Series Sky MAX

Image: Brassic/SKY

I absolutely love watching Brassic! The 5th series was in 2023, and it just seems to get better with age.

It’s actually kind of hard to describe the show, but it’s a comedy drama series of working class friends from the North. Following their lives and tribulations which usually included stealing, drugs, drinking and getting up to all kinds.

The latest episode was a Christmas special in December 2023, and Brassic Series 6 has been filmed and is on it’s way in 2024.

Channel: SKY Max / SKY Showcase
Length: 1 Hour (including ads)
Number Of Seasons: 5

House Of The Dragon

House Of The Dragon TV Show Sky Atlantic

Who doesn’t love a prequel? Well many don’t, but if you were a fan of Game Of Thrones this is one you’re going to want to watch. House Of The Dragon has just started this year, so fans who are missing Game Of Thrones have this to sink their teeth into.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Length: 53 – 66 minutes
Number Of Seasons:
Number Of Episodes: 8


Billions TV Series Sky Atlantic

Billions concluded in  2023 in it’s 7th and final season on SKY Atlantic (Showtime in the USA). It’s the perfect time to re-watch and binge watch every series right now.

It’s a brilliant drama which started out as Bobby Axelrod and Chuck Rhodes: The hedge fund manager vs the Attorney, in a dramatic good vs evil show.

Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis) left after season 5, with a new enemy of his, Michael Prince taking over Axe Capital. Season 6 was a strange one with Axe not being in it, but it was still been a good season with Michael Prince assuming the role of bad guy billionaire.

Season 7 has just ended, and Bobby Axelrod has made a comeback. Now Billions is over and the ending was good, that just gives us a chance to re-watch every episode once again starting from the beginning.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: 1 Hour
Number Of Seasons: 7
Number Of Episodes: 84

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty

Winning Time The Lakers Dynasty Story TV Show Sky Atlantic

You don’t have to be a big basketball fan to enjoy the sports drama that is Winning Time.

As the name suggests it’s about the rise of the LA Lakers in the 1980s with players like Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I love shows like this, which draw heavily on real life events but adds that bit of dramatization to it.

It’s a lot more than basketball, with a lot of the show about the owners, and the struggles of players and all the staff within the team. It’s a brilliant watch.

In 2023 Season 2 of Winning Time began in August, and once again it’s great. Showtime have announced that the series has been cancelled, and Winning Time Season 2 will be the last.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: 1~ Hour
Number Of Seasons: 2
Number Of Episodes: 17

Your Honor

Your Honor TV Series Sky Atlantic

A dramatic thriller, Your Honor is a gripping TV show on Sky Atlantic which is a fantastic watch. The show opens with a teenage driver accidentally killing another teenager who’s riding a motorbike.

It’s then discovered that the driver of the car is the son of a top judge, and the kid who he killed just happens to be the son of one of the biggest crime bosses in New Orleans.

I won’t put in any more spoilers, but it’s been a brilliant watch and definitely binge-worthy. The only bad thing is the spelling of “Honour” which is spelled Honor (since it’s an American show).

Series 2 already started in the U.S. in January, and is available now in the UK on a new channel, Paramount Plus.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: 1 Hour
Number Of Seasons: 2 (Season 2 is available on Paramount Plus in the UK)
Number Of Episodes: 20

Gangs Of London

Gangs Of London TV Series Sky

Image: Gangs Of London/SKY

If you’re into a crime drama, Gangs Of London is definitely the one to watch this year. It premiered on SKY Atlantic in April 2020, with the second season being available in October 2022.

It centres around the Wallace family who have a focus on crime, as well as their partners and rival gangs. There is twists and turns in the story, and it keeps you gripped.

It’s incredibly violent and bloody, so if you aren’t into that, you might want to give this one a miss. If a gangster thriller sounds like it’s up your street, it’s worth watching.

I have loved watching this show, and it’s one that you can binge watch, with it’s gripping storyline and wanting to know what happens next.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: 1 Hour
Number Of Seasons: 2
Number Of Episodes: 17


Ballers TV Series Sky Comedy

Ballers made it’s final ever season in 2019, it will be missed. But the good news is that there’s a massive 5 seasons to re-watch, that’s 47 episodes.

It’s a comedy drama type of series, which has the backdrop of American Football.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to understand or even like American Football to enjoy this show. It’s all about the life of people inside the game, from agents to managers and players, similar to Entourage was for the film industry.

Channel: SKY Comedy / SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: 30 Minutes
Number Of Seasons: 5
Number Of Episodes: 47


Chernobyl TV Series Sky Atlantic

One of the best shows in recent years was Chernobyl. I’ve always been fascinated with the terrible disaster that has been known as Chernobyl, but never knew much about it.

This is a drama show which is done really, really well, and tells the story. It’s captivating and it will keep you hooked.

The good thing is that now all the shows have aired, you can binge watch this one, so it comes down to how much time you want to spend on watching the show in a day.

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: 1 Hour
Number Of Seasons: 1
Total Number Of Episodes: 6

Silicon Valley

Silicone Valley Sky Comedy

Silicon Valley is based around a tech start up in, you guessed it, Silicon Valley. It’s a comedy drama kind of show, mostly about 5 guys who are friends and programmers. It goes from a new start up Pied Piper, and over 6 seasons the show has evolved from there.

Channel: SKY Comedy / SKY Atlantic
Episode Length: ~30 Minutes

Game Of Thrones

Game Of Thrones

Winter Is Coming? I wouldn’t know. Am I the only one who didn’t watch Game Of Thrones?

Channel: SKY Atlantic
Length: 50-82 Minutes
Number Of Seasons: 8
Number Of Episodes: 73


Entourage Sky Comedy TV Series

Entourage was my favourite TV show years ago, and I think it could be the best tv show to binge watch ever! Each episode is only around 30 minutes long, and it’s got 96 episodes split over 8 seasons.

It follows the story of Vinny Chase who is the movie star, and is in Hollywood with his friends which include Turtle, Eric and his half brother Johnny “Drama” Chase. One of the best characters in the show is his agent, Ari Gold, who is always funny.

There’s tons of other supporting characters throughout the series, including cameo appearances from lots of celebrities. It’s so easy to binge watch an entire season in no time at all.

The first show back on Amazon for 2024 is James May Our Man In India. If you read on you’ll read all about the Japan and Italy series, this year he’s back and in India.

I’ve watched the first 2 episodes and they were pretty good. It’s a James May travel show like the others, with expert guides, laughs with the crew and plenty of info and fun to keep you entertained.

Channel: Amazon Prime Video
Episode Length: 1~ Hour
Number Of Episodes: 3

The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour Amazon Prime

Image: The Grand Tour/Amazon

The Grand Tour is about cars, sort of. It’s Richard Hammond, James May and Jeremy Clarkson doing what they do best: Arsing about. This show is much about travel as it is about cars.

If you like a bit of a laugh, comedy, men, cars and travel, you’ll like this. It’s not really a car show, so you don’t need to worry about having a huge interest in cars, although you may enjoy it more.

Series 4 currently has 3 episodes which are specials. The first being “The Grand Tour: Seamen” and the latest being released almost a year later, “A Massive Hunt” which was set in Réunion and Madagascar. The 3rd in the chapter is Carnage A Trois which was released in December 2021.

Series 5 started in September 2022 with A Scandi Flick which sees the lads travel across Scandinavia in rally cars.

Last summer saw Eurocrash, which was released in June 2023 and see’s the boys travel 1400 miles through Poland, Slovakia, Hungry and Slovenia.

The latest episode is the penultimate special called Sand Job, released on 16th February. This sees the boys go from Mauritania to Dakar in Senegal in home made rally cars.

The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power

The Rings Of Power

I have to confess and say I am not a fan of this franchise, but Amazon has spent a fortune on The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power and I have to say the cinematography looks incredible.

Premiering in London, it made it’s way on to Amazon Prime Video on 2nd September 2022 where you can watch 8 episodes of the first season. The second season of The Rings Of Power has already been announced.

Channel: Amazon Prime Video

Cruel Summer

Cruel Summer TV Series

Image: Freeform/Justine Yeung*

The story set over 3 summers, 1993, 1994, and 1995. That is what Cruel Summer is all about. This is a brilliant coming of age story about 2 teenage girls, Jeanette Turner and Kate Wallis.

A similar sounding story with the geek and the popular girl, but it gets dark. Kate goes missing and it appears that Jeanette takes over her life.

The way this is shot is so unique and brilliant. Each episode is based on 1 day of the summer, but in all 3 different years. We see the whole summer unfold and find out exactly what is going on.

Cruel Summer season 2 began in June 2023, and is once again fantastic. This time it’s set in 1999-2000, with a completely new storyline and characters to the first. Once again, this is worth binge watching, you’ll not be disappointed.

If you missed out on the first season, you can now also watch season 1 of Cruel Summer on E4.

Do you like farming? It doesn’t matter, because this is Clarkson’s Farm. Jeremy Clarkson along with a few of his farming fellows including Kaleb take us on a hilarious journey of what farm life is all about.

This is The Grand Tour/Top Gear but in a farm instead of a car. Oh and there’s a few sheep too. and now cows! The first series was set during the pandemic, with the 2nd series being released in 2023, and a brand new 3rd series for 2024.

After watching the first 2 series and really enjoying it, i’ve been looking forward to this brand new 3rd series which was released Friday 3rd May. 4 Episodes dropped, with the final 4 being released a week later on 10th May.

So far it’s been brilliant, and is such a brilliant series to binge watch.

Our Man In Japan With James May

Our Man In Japan James May

If you’ve ever been fascinated in Japan and travel, this is for you. I enjoy most of the shows James May does, and Our Man In Japan is another good one.

It’s as entertaining as it is informative, and has that binge-worthy factor of wanting to start the next episode immediately after watching the previous one.

Channel: Amazon Prime Video
Episode Length: 47 – 53 Minutes

James May Our Man In Italy

James May Our Man In Italy

On the back of Our Man In Japan, James May returned in 2022 with Our Man In Italy. I have watched the whole series and I think it was great.

If you’ve seen the previous series this one carries on in very much the same vein. Exploring Italy with a host of Italian co-presenters and guides, not to mention getting into arguments with the crew.

See James May participate in traditional activities throughout his journey in Italy.

Channel: Amazon Prime Video
Episode Length: 51 – 53 Minutes
Number Of Seasons: 1

Red Oaks

Red Oaks TV Series On Amazon Prime Video

One of my favourite shows I’ve watched in recent times, Red Oaks is epic.

A comedy drama coming of age series set in the 80s about a few friends who work at a rich country club is the best way to describe this.

Every character is so likeable, there’s plenty of jokes and quotes running throughout the show, it’s brilliant.

I can’t believe that Red Oaks is now over 8 years old. It’s still such a great watch, lots of laughs and easy to sit back and binge watch.

Channel: Amazon Prime Video
Episode Length: ~30 Minutes
Number Of Seasons: 3

Four More Shots, Please!

Four More Shots Please TV Series

Image: Four More Shots Please!/Amazon

Have you ever wanted to watch a show set in India about 4 Indian women at different stages of their lives/careers? Probably not, but Four More Shots, Please! is all about that, and it works.

If you like shows which are based around friendships and have a kind of buddy feel to them, this is one of a flurry that I’ve been watching this year. It’s in English/Hindi, and you’ll need subtitles to watch it, but it’s a good watch.

I have watched all 3 series and loved each and every one, with the latest being released in late 2022. The backdrop of India is unusual, and it’s good to see popular culture in another land.

It’s all about friends and dealing with situations, and series 2 starts in the summer right before going back to Uni in 2014. You can binge watch all episodes now, or watch one at a time as they’re being broadcast on Channel 4.

Derry Girls

Derry Girls Channel 4

Image: Channel 4

Derry Girls is one of the best British comedy show we’ve had on TV for a long time.

I watched the first series absolutely loved it, so watching the second series was a necessity. The show centres around 4 girls from Derry, Erin, Michelle, Orla and Clare, as well as Michelle’s cousin from England, James.

Most of the show centres around Erin and her family including her ma Mary, Aunt and mother of Orla, Sarah, Da Gerry and Granda Joe. There’s a lot of school life too, at Our Lady Immaculate College (a catholic school) and sister Michael.

It’s set in the 90’s around the time of the troubles in Northern Ireland in the early/mid 90’s.

The story lines are brilliant, and I have to mention the music, it’s epic. It takes you back to the 90’s, and is featured quite a bit in the show which gives it the ultimate nostalgic feel.

Episodes are only around 30 minutes long, so very easy to watch a few episodes in a row.

Derry Girls Season 3 ended in 2022 which is so sad. The good thing is now we can re-watch every episode back to back!

Channel: Channel 4/ E4

Number Of Episodes: 19 (including a 1 hour special ending)

It’s A Sin

Hullraisers Channel 4

A brilliantly funny British series, Hullraisers is back for it’s 2nd series in 2023 and it’s fantastic. I love this show, basically following the lives of 3 women and their families with the ups and downs of life in Hull. The first series debuted in 2022, and now series 2 is airing in November 2023 and it’s been just as good so far.

Each episode is only around 30 minutes long, so it’s really easy to binge watch.

Best Series On BBC And Box Sets On BBC iPlayer

BBC and the iPlayer has plenty of new series as well as old to binge watch. There’s a few exclusives from the U.S. which can’t be seen on any channel, and the iPlayer is free in the UK.

Mortimer And Whitehouse: Gone Fishing

Mortimer And Whitehouse Gone Fishing BBC 2

You might be thinking why would you want to watch a tv series about fishing? It’s because it’s brilliant, and not much about fishing!

The backdrop is fishing, but it’s Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse going around the country to various rivers and fishing spots. They talk, have a laugh, it’s really really funny, and there’s some fishing too.

You don’t have to know anything about fishing, or even like it to enjoy this show.

It’s kind of like The Grand Tour but fishing rather than cars.

If you liked them in the 90’s, then you should like this. Mortimer And Whitehouse: Gone Fishing has been around since 2018 but I just got into it in 2020.

Since then, there’s been 6 series including the latest Christmas special for Hogmanay in December 2023. Mortimer & Whitehouse Gone Fishing Series 7 will start in 2024 and be an extended 8 episodes long.

Channel: BBC iPlayer
Episode Length: 30 Minutes (Specials are ~1 hour)

The Bold Type

The Bold Type TV Series

Another show about friendships, this is The Bold Type. Set in New York City, three best friends work for a magazine in different departments, it’s your typical TV show about friends, relationships, work and life.

Think of something like Girls but less raw and more laid back and easier to watch. The Bold Type concluded after 5 seasons which is sad, but the good part is now you can binge watch the entire thing.

In 2023 The Bold Type went from Amazon Prime Video to being available on the BBC iPlayer, with all 5 seasons being able to be streamed and binge watched.

I re-watched a lot of it on BBC3 and it was so good to see it again.

The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan

The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan

I only saw one episode of the first series of The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan, but when I saw there was a second series, I decided to give it a proper watch, and I’m glad I did.

Take comedy and humour, add in entertainment and mix it with travel and some interesting facts about cool places, and you get this show.

After being hooked on all of the series so far, I was happy to see it return for 2024 with the 4th series. This one is 3 episodes long, and sees Romesh go across Africa to Uganda, Rwanda and Madagascar bringing lots of info and humour.

Shrill TV Series

If you like shows such as Girls, The Bold Type or Derry Girls, you’re likely to love Shrill. It kind of reminds me of Girls the most. It a comedy which centres around a girl called Annie, who is a young woman making her way through life as an overweight girl.

There’s work life, boyfriends and just going through life in general. It’s a really easy to watch show, and you’ll find yourself sitting down and binging on several shows all at once, if not entire series.

All 3 series are on BBC iPlayer in the UK (HULU in USA), and with each episode lasting 30 minutes, it’s easy to binge watch.

Richard Hammond’s Workshop

When it comes to car shows, there’s been plenty to watch and some to miss, but Richard Hammond’s Workshop is one to watch.

He has decided to take on opening up a classic car restoration garage with a veteran family of experts, and of course has bitten off more than he can chew.

As you’d expect it’s not just an hour of car restoration, there’s plenty of entertainment along the way too. With boss Neil and his son Anthony, who embarks on a career as a racing driver throughout the second and third series.

A good watch if you like cars or don’t.

Vinnie Jones In The Country

Vinnie Jones In The Country Discovery+ Review

First we had Clarkson’s Farm, and at the back end of 2023 we’ve got a show in a similar vein, Vinnie Jones In The Country. This one is less about animals and more about fixing up Vinnie’s old farm house.

Tune in for lots of swearing, laughs and Vinnie being Vinnie (whatever that means).
