Take a Look at Showmax’s Impressive Binge Collection for the Serious Series-Junkie!


There’s nothing quite like listening to your favourite song over and over again or like rewatching your favourite movie. With a special TV-show, it’s even better though. With so many seasons and episodes, it’s like watching it for the first time again. While you may have remembered the bigger picture, you always seem to find small details and fun bits you had forgotten or missed. Sometimes, these new little realisations and discoveries will give you a whole new outlook on your favourite shows and characters.

If you’re like me and enjoy rediscovering your favourites then you’ll be more than impressed with what Showmax has to offer. While we love sharing all their latest and greatest, we thought we would take a look at some of the ‘most-watched’ tv-shows in history that Showmax has in stock for the ultimate binge session:


Grey’s Anatomy

“This medical drama portrays the blood, sweat and tears of five surgical interns as they turn into competent doctors with the help of their mentors. Meredith Grey is the daughter of a famous surgeon, starting her own career at the Seattle Grace Hospital. Joining her are her fellow resident interns, Cristina, Alex, Izzie and George, who all struggle to maintain their personal lives with their gruelling work schedule, and inevitably fall for the people they work with.”



Big Bang Theory

“Best friends and physicists, Leonard and Sheldon may be able to tell everybody more than they want to know about quantum physics, but getting through basic social situations, especially ones involving women, baffles them. How lucky, then, when babe-alicious waitress/aspiring actress Penny moves in next door and their worlds collide.”


The Good Wife

“Emmy Award-winning The Good Wife follows Alicia Florrick, a dutiful wife and mother who must climb the career ladder from the bottom when she returns to work for the first time after 13 years as a stay-at-home mom. Her husband Peter is a former State’s Attorney who is involved in a highly publicised sex scandal and is subsequently imprisoned.”



Game of Thrones

“HBO sinks its considerable storytelling teeth into the medieval fantasy epic. It’s the depiction of two powerful families – kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men – playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and to sit atop the Iron Throne. Martin is credited as a co-executive producer and one of the writers for the series, which was filmed in Northern Ireland and Malta.”


Cougar Town

“A divorced mother must face the harsh realities of dating and ageing in a youth- and beauty-obsessed culture. Having spent her 20s tackling the responsibilities of marriage, she finds that her 40s are a journey of self-discovery along with the members of her dysfunctional but supportive extended family, `the cul-de-sac crew’.”



South Park

“The animated series is not for children. In fact, its goal seems to be to offend as many as possible as it presents the adventures of Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman. The show has taken on Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, politicians of every stripe and self-important celebrities. Oh, and Kenny is killed in many episodes.”




“Dr Frasier Crane, a successful Boston therapist, moves to Seattle to get a new start on life; he has a radio talk show, which he uses to relay his wit and wisdom to others, but at times he struggles with his own problems with his salt-of-the-earth father, his pretentious brother and his friends and co-workers.”




“David Duchovny returns to series television in this adult sitcom as Hank Moody, an alcoholic, womanizing novelist struggling to help raise his precocious daughter, Becca, while still yearning for his sophisticated ex, Karen. Also featured in the show are Hank’s agent, Charlie, and his one-time wife, Marcy.”



True Blood

“Odd-ball Sookie Stackhouse falls for Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who has `come out of the coffin’ along with many of his undead comrades – since a new synthetic blood has made it possible for vampires to survive without preying on humans. Their affair causes a major stir their little town.”



The Sopranos

“Tony Soprano juggles the problems of his fractious family with those of a “Family” of a different sort – the mob. He sees a therapist to deal with his professional and personal problems, which bring on panic attacks. He deals with personal and professional power struggles, affairs, violence, the threat of exposure and betrayal, and a whole bunch of people being whacked.”





“Mystery novelist Rick Castle teams with Detective Kate Beckett to solve the case of a copycat killer who re-creates murder scenes from Rick’s novels. They realize that their unorthodox partnership has its benefits and decide to continue working together. Combining his writer’s intuition with her creative detective work, they investigate strange homicides.”



“Big-time Manhattan corporate lawyer Harvey Specter and his team are launched into a play for power when a new partner joins the firm.  The team faces down betrayals, fiery relationships, and secrets that eventually come to light. Old and new rivalries come to light among members of the team as they learn to deal with their new member.”
