My Favorite Shows to Watch With My Husband

best TV shows for couples

Like everyone else, we’ve been watching a ton of TV and movies since Covid began. Obviously, we’ve been staying in a lot, between lockdowns, quarantining and social distancing, so date night often consists of takeout and finding a new TV show to binge-watch. And you know, spending way too much time looking for shows for couples that we’ll both like before one of us calls it quits and just goes to bed.

Watching a new TV series with my husband is how I wind down at the end of the day or a long week these days. I don’t know about you, but now more than ever, I feel like I need a good diversion, and finding a TV series I can’t stop watching is the best distraction I’ve found in quarantine. One thing that really annoys me though is it can be really hard to find good shows for couples — series’s my husband and I can both enjoy, start to finish. We waste needless amounts of time looking for and debating what show to watch next, and half the time, we end up agreeing to disagree and I’ll leave him to watch something I’m not interested and go to bed to watch something I actually want to watch, which abruptly puts an end to date night.

My husband and I have different tastes in programming for sure, but we’ve actually found a surprising number of shows to binge watch together. So if you’re looking for some good shows for couples that you can stream, I’ve pulled together a list of our favorites. You might actually be surprised to see ones like Gilmore Girls and our most recent watch, Bridgerton on there, but quarantine will do funny things to you and your marriage. Pro tip: When you watch football almost every night (why is it ALWAYS on?!), you earn yourself first pick of shows, and it’s funny how easily husbands can become hooked on shows they initially resist like a certain period drama that’s pretttty steamy.

Here are my favorite shows for couples, or at least the shows we’ve enjoyed watching together. Happy date night binging. And please share your favorite shows to watch — we’re running low on content!
