So here you go! Here are 5 shows you should binge-watch:

1) Suits

Number of seasons available: 4

Summary: This hit series stars Gabriel Macht as one of Manhattan's top corporate lawyers who sets out to recruit a new hotshot associate but winds up hiring the only guy that impresses him - a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout (Patrick J. Adams). Though he isn't actually a lawyer, this legal prodigy has the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a hustler. However, in order to serve justice and save their jobs, both these unconventional thinkers must continue the charade that he's actually just one of the other Suits.

2) Looking

Number of seasons available: 2

Summary: Looking offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends living – and loving – in modern-day San Francisco. Friendship may bind them, but each is at a markedly different point in his journey: Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is the 29- year-old video game designer getting back into the dating world in the wake of his ex's engagement; aspiring artist Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), 31, is questioning the idea of monogamy amid a move to domesticate with his boyfriend; and the group's oldest member, long-time waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett), 39, is facing middle age with romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled.
