#Project14Lists: Favorite TV Shows I Binge-Watch (While Writing!)

Season’s greetings guys, gals, and enby pals! Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope you had a good one. And if you don’t celebrate any – well, I hope y’all had a wonderful, stress-free day.

As per yoosh, today’s post will be another entry in Shealea’s #Project14Lists. To know more about #Project14Lists, check out Shealea’s intro post here.


This one will be all about my favorite TV shows to binge-watch while writing. I play TV shows in the background while writing my blog posts, and while working, studying, or writing, instead of listening to music or a podcast. Just in case this method of stimulating your brain juices works for you as well, here’s what I like playing in the background when I’m at my laptop!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine


Who doesn’t like this incredibly woke and yet super funny sitcom about the NYPD detectives of Brooklyn’s 99th precinct? I’ve watched all five seasons so many times, I can practically recite them line-for-line. Something about the wacky hi-jinks, witty one-liners, snarky comebacks, and sassy insults really gets my brain going!

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina


I’ll be honest. I hate this show. I think it’s trite and messy and utterly fails at its promise of being feminist and intersectional (I could go on to a hideously long rant about male consent, racism, white saviorism/cishet saviorism, and ignoring POC identity, but that’s for another blog post) – but I can’t help it. It is so aesthetically pleasing. The Weird Sisters’ on point outfits, the gray hazy weather in Greendale, the architecture of the Academy of the Unseen Arts, the Spellman Mortuary, the Church of Night, Ms. Wardwell’s makeup and wardrobe – it is all just so pretty and inspiring!

RuPaul’s Drag Race and RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars


“I love you so much, mi amor, so much I wanna die!” Ayyeee, Valentina, caliente! But seriously though, Ru-Paul’s Drag Race and All-Stars is a pop culture phenomenon for a reason. The drama, the fashion, the comedy – it’s got everything for someone who needs a shot of creative inspiration.

Stranger Things


This sci-fi and horror TV series captured viewers’ imagination with its throwback to 80s thriller classics, well-developed characters. And while waiting for Season 3 (when is it coming out already?) I like playing Season 1 and Season 2 while writing, studying, or reading. Honestly, if you haven’t seen this yet, what are you waiting for?

Queer Eye


For a dose of good feelings and positive vibes, switch on this TV series about the Fab Five – Karamo, Tan, Bobby, Jonathan, and Antoni – making over the living space, hair and makeup, wardrobe, cooking habits, and attitude of their “heroes” (what they call their clients). It never fails to put me in a good mood and inspire me to be a better, kinder person!

Avatar: The Last Airbender


Honestly at this point if you haven’t watched A:TLA yet and have no plans of doing so, there is no hope for you. (And on that note, remember to add The Rise of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee on Goodreads!)

  1. Okay- I cannot do that, as I need as much silence as I can get to concentrate; a bit why I cant read daytime (though I’ll try to fix that!)

    For one, idk why im not watching B99 as im one to love CSI and thoses kinds of shows 🙈 ive yet to watch Sabrina though Its on my list of « wanna watch ». I did LOVED avatar the last airbender when I was younger !! Totally should watch afain


  2. I binge watched both seasons of Stranger Things and I’m so ready for the third season! In the summer I binged the kdrama “Hello, My Twenties 2” and I LOVED it even though I was not expecting it! Recently, I’ve binge watched the Netflix “You” (do not recommend if you can’t go for a walk afterwards, though!)


  3. I think I’d probably get distracted if I tried to watch shows while writing (that implies that I actually write *cough*no*cough*) but these all sound great! B99 has been on my radar for a long time so I might give it a go eventually!


  4. I love that B99 is on this list. I sometimes switch on Leverage while I write because I’ve seen it so many times I don’t feel bad if I miss something. Otherwise, I switch on music or I put on something on YouTube – like Superwoman videos or short webseries’.

  5. YES OMG! I LOVE that Avatar: The Last Airbender is on this list ❤ It's a show that will truly never get old, and I love how much thought and detail was put into its creation. I've watched 1 season of Legend of Korra but didn't love it as much, so I'm debating whether or not to continue. I started watching B99 because of the book community, so I love that it's also recommended 🙂

    • I read somewhere that the reason LoK wasn’t as compelling was because the characters are no longer the underdogs fighting an oppressive regime? Although my wlw-loving ass stuck around because Korrasami pretty much saved the show.
