Some days (okay, most days), I love to call it a day at 6PM and binge-watch a feel good TV series. And this women’s day, I am celebrating this ingenious flaw of my character. Here’s presenting 13 of my all time guilty pleasures – some now and some old.

Sex and The City:

A sex columnist, Carrie Bradshaw, and her three friends — Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda — explore Manhattan’s dating scene, chronicling the mating habits of single New Yorkers. Not surprisingly, the ladies have a number of beaus throughout the series’ run. It’s the holy grail of guilty pleasures. You known all the reason why the show’s storyline is messed up, but you can’t help relating to Charlotte’s optimism, Samantha’s boss lady vibe, Miranda’s level-headedness and Carrie’s dangerous pull towards Mr. Big.

One Day at a Time:

This Netflix-original comedy-drama is inspired by Norman Lear’s 1975 series of the same name. This time around, the series follows the life of Penelope, a newly single Army veteran, and her Cuban-American family, as they navigate the ups and downs of life. Now a nurse, Penelope is raising two strong-willed children. When faced with challenges, Penelope turns to her “old-school” mother, and her building manager, who has become an invaluable confidant. The series offers a contemporary take on what life looks like in both good and bad times, and how loved ones can help make it all worthwhile.
