Last time we checked, spending eight or twelve straight days in bed to marathon your new favorite TV show is very definition of paradise. In the past, binge-watching has been reserved only for catching up on already-aired seasons, but now Netflix is changing the game.
The video streaming service tested the first season of Lilyhammer last year—Steven Van Zandt stars as a New York gangster starting life over in Norway—with lukewarm results, but hit its stride with the addictive House of Cards.
If the political drama is any indication of Netflix’s talent, the rest of 2013 may very well revolve around you, a dark room, and the soft glow of your laptop. Three shows will premiere this spring, beginning this Sunday with Bad Samaritans. Although Netflix hasn’t revealed much, we take a stab at determining which new series are worth the binge.
