The holiday season lends itself to family get-togethers, exorbitant amounts of food and for many, vacation days! This is the perfect time to catch up on all those TV series you've heard so much about but never had the time to watch... until now.
Here's a Top 5 list to get you started on the best shows to check out and they're all available in your Netflix que.
1. House Of Cards- A Netflix original series, this political drama starring Kate Mara and Kevin Spacey is sure to keep you indoors.
BONUS! To get you ready for House of Cards' season 2, debuting Feb. 14, 2014, here's a teaser of Robyn Wright smoking:
2. Sons of Anarchy- This gritty FX show has been in the spotlight lots more this year thanks to the lead actor Charlie Hunnam accepting, and then turning down, the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film.
3. Scandal- Shonda Rhimes is to television what Jane Austin was to books. Following behind Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, Rhimes created Scandal starring the stunning Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope. Portraying a powerful player in D.C., Pope juggles between her career and her steamy, can't-take-your-eyes-off-the-television affair with the President of the United States.
4. Louie- Louie C.K. cleaned up at the Emmy Awards in 2012 and for good reason. His dark comedy follows his life as a newly single, 40-something dad of two daughters, and it's hilarious. Cutting between his stand-up comedy routine and him maneuvering between awkward day-to-day troubles makes for great television.
5. Friday Night Lights- This show will actually make you consider moving to Texas and either marrying or becoming a football coach (or both). FNL has developed a huge cult following despite its meager ratings when it aired on NBC, but nonetheless has made superstars out of Connie Britton, Kyle Chandler, Minka Kelly and Taylor Kitsch. Don't get caught up in the idea that this is just a show about football, because it's so much more.
