Binge-worthy TV shows for Maternity Leave

I started my maternity leave 4 weeks before Freya was due. Funnily enough, my words to my colleagues were that I would more than likely have the baby early as I wanted to spend those 4 weeks watching lots of TV and working on my blog.

I obviously jinxed myself as 2.5 weeks later Freya arrived into the world and all the TV shows I had planned to watch were side-lined to being a mama. Now Freya is 7 weeks old, we are slowly getting into a better routine which means binge-watching TV shows is back on my agenda for a rainy afternoon. I am not ashamed to admit that a bit of bad weather is welcome in this house as it means lots of playtime indoors and TV show watching. We are lucky to have some excellent quality televisions in our house to watch these shows on however if I could, I would absolutely purchase a Panasonic Oled 4K TV as the quality of the screen is just amazing, and makes everything clearer.

Now onto the most important part, my recommendation for binge-worthy TV shows; some of my which I’ve watched already and others that I plan on watching.


This is the story of a young Jim Gordon and his early days with the Gotham police force. You meet Bruce Wayne as well as many of the famous characters from the comic books and this is definitely worth a binge although it might take you a few episodes to get the ball rolling.

Game of Thrones

An obvious choice for me, I’ve loved this since the early days. I admit that my now husband introduced me to the series in his student days and once I watched it, I absolutely loved it. The story is still going as we await the next season but so far it’s been really impressive and worth a watch.

This is not one I’ve watched but is on my list. I’ve heard awesome things about this show and it sounds completely up my street. This might not be for everyone but it is supposed to be catty yet witty which sounds like the best combination.

The Vampire Diaries

We actually started watching this back in 2013 when we were in Florida and saw an advert for the spin-off; The Originals. Late to the party, we started watching this show and are so glad that we did. We are now in the middle of watching the final season which is turning out really good, but I’ll be a little sad when it ends. Absolutely worth a watch as is the spin-off which is filming its 5th Season at the moment as well.

There you have it, my binge-worthy TV shows for maternity leave or any sort of time off really. You will not be sorry.

Leave me a comment with any other recommendations you have for the rest of my maternity leave.
