Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 1.26.57 PM
That late-night breastfeeding rendezvous can get awfully tiring and lonely without a friend. Enter: Netflix. It’s literally perfect, right? All your [fictional] friends in one place, ready to hangout, keep you company, and have you laughing when the rest of the world is asleep.

As a self-proclaimed Netflix enthusiast, I feel it’s my duty to give you a few recommendations. There’s so much to watch, and quite frankly, so much time while that little one is sucking up every last drop. Here’s what you should be watching in the meantime and why.

#1: The Office. Whether you’re a newbie or watching reruns, there is nothing like a midnight date with Michael Scott. With a killer cast and great storylines, you won’t be able to stop hanging out with your new friends watching. // already seen it? alternative: Parks and Recreation

#2: The Walking Dead. The zombie apocalypse may not be for everyone, but once you get past the initial gore, you’ll be hooked. Action-packed and yes, even romantic at times. Plus, Daryl Dixon eye candy. Enough said. // already seen it? alternative: Lost

#3: Breaking Bad. Because if you did not watch this show already, then what the heck are you waiting for? Just please, for the love of all that is holy, watch this show. // already seen it? alternative: Sons of Anarchy

#4: Gilmore Girls. This one will get ya right in the feels, especially if you have a daughter. You’ll want to become a permanent resident of Stars Hollow, and be best friends with Lorelai and Rory Gilmore – trust me. // already seen it? alternative: Parenthood

#5: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s only one season so far, so you’ll blow through this series. Tina Fey is the writer and producer, so you know it’s gold. I’ve got two words for you: Titus Andromedon. Go meet him. Now. // already seen it? alternative: 30 Rock

#6: Bob’s Burgers. Move over, Family Guy. There’s a new animated family in town and they are no joke. Step inside Linda and Bob Belcher’s life, and you may just relate to their quirky family. Plus, Tina Belcher will become your confident, awkward, feminist soul sister. // already seen it? alternative: Futurama

#7: The Vampire Diaries. Any vampire, werewolf, and all-things-supernatural fans out there? Sure, it’s a show for teens… but honestly, no. Do not be ashamed for enjoying a good story, filled with romance, drama, and action. And Ian Somerhalder. // already seen it? alternative: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

#8: Orange Is the New Black. I know you’ve heard about it, but have you given it a shot? You’ll meet a lot of Litchfield inmates, and want to be friends with (almost) all of them. // already seen it? alternative: Weeds

#9: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. A prequel to the cult film, Wet Hot American Summer, this show is for you if you like silly, slapstick comedy. The cast includes Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pine, and Jon Hamm. So yeah, you’ll want to at least give it a shot! // already seen it? alternative: Freaks and Geeks

#10: Friends. Last but not least, obviously. It just wouldn’t be a complete list without it. We know that you know you should be watching it (if you aren’t already). I don’t care if it’s the 10th time you’ve seen the series. It’s. worth. it. // already seen it? alternative: New Girl
