Only COOL nerds though
  1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    Witty, supernatural, and somehow relatable all at the same time, this show is an addicting binge watch waiting to happen whenever I watch one episode. Joss Whedon is pure genius.
  2. Doctor Who
    I'm sure early DW is great, but I'm referring to the modern version starting in 2005. Fans of Buffy will like Doctor Who, as it also masterfully combined poignancy and humor with sci-fi. Plus the constantly changing Doctors and companions will keep you on your toes.
  3. Sherlock
    Another Moffat show, plus showrunner Mark Gatiss who is wonderful as Mycroft. This show put Benedict Cumberbatch on the map, and you have to watch to see why. Each episode is movie-length, but super fast paced. All on Netflix, people!
  4. Firefly
    This show only lasted one season, which is a huge shame. Still, it's an incredible season and Joss Whedon is in fine form throughout. Who doesn't like westerns in space??
  5. Game of Thrones
    This show is for EXTRA cool nerds. Just watch it and join the conversation already, or I'll tell you what Red Wedding means.
  6. Battlestar Galactica
    Going to be honest, I've never actually watched this. I've heard fantastic things about it though, and I'm trying hard to get around to it. Except they just very rudely removed it from Netflix.
  7. Orphan Black
    Crazy genetics, scary corporation that controls everything, cool technology that allows one actress to play like a million roles in the same scene
