20 Awesome TV Series to Skyrocket Your Fun Now!


A list of 20 Awesome TV Series - what's that got to do with organizing?

So glad you asked!

We associate organizing with moving “STUFF” in and out of spaces in our homes and offices.

“Stuff” that’s crowding our drawers and bursting in our closets.

“Stuff” stacked like leaning Jenga towers piled on our desks and tables.

Okay, pretty much any horizontal surface invites “stuff” for many of us. Me included.

Which gives me pause - the floor is a horizontal surface. Does that explain why our floors sometimes look like obstacle courses?

Then we pretend we aren’t home if someone knocks on our front door. {Or is that just me who ducks under the front bay window.}

Here’s the thing; it’s not about the stuff.

Repeat after me, “It’s not about the stuff!”

Sure it’s helpful to organize the stuff, but guess what we often leave last on the list? Organizing our mindset.

Creating space in our minds and day for fun!

R&R is super important because we deserve a happy life! We all need downtime and to refuel or we may burn out and get depressed. For me, entertainment is my Chill-time go-to.

I love to unwind by reading novels. Check out my post of, 21 great books recommendations. I also enjoy watching great movies and engaging TV Series.

{BTW, the movie list is coming, so for now, it’s this short TV land list for your entertainment.}

Why TV? TV has done a major upgrade. Studios such as HBO, Netflix, Amazon and others have taken their TV operations in-house. They’ve built studios of their own, hire top notch writing teams, and entice incredible actors.

Many TV shows rival excellent films. No longer do we have to wait for Masterpiece Theatre or the next Downton Abbey...the choices are vast. 

So get ready to feed your brain some dopamine with these 20 Awesome TV series recommendations! There’s comedy, detective, crime and drama, so you’re bound to find a favorite or two.

WARNING! You may get hooked and want to marathon through.


Trust me, I could veg all day long watching a great show. Which is why, on work days, my strategy is to get my main action steps and goals done before watching a show.

I do sometimes take breaks during projects and watch a show episode. It’s fun to leave it for after dinner chillin’ or a rainy weekend for some marathon viewing.

So….skip Mr. Moviefone, you got me here offering up 20 awesome TV series that are binge-worthy.  Okay 23 - I had to force myself to stop ;-}
