We’re all sick of the Netflix and chill joke as 2016 begins, but we’ll never tire of binge-watching our favorite crime dramas. Confused as to what to pull out of the pantry or fridge as you cuddle up in your bed hungover from syllabus week? We got you covered.
The Blacklist: Ben and Jerry’s
Former government agent and fugitive Raymond “Red” Reddington surrenders to the FBI and helps them capture career criminals. However, he only listens to rookie agent Liz Keene. Ben and Jerry’s flavors are all unique, just like the criminals profiled in each episode.
White Collar: Coffee
Neal Caffrey takes his coffee very seriously, so you should curl up with a cup o’ joe while binge-watching this FBI series. Similar to The Blacklist, Neal works with the White Collar FBI unit in New York under the watchful eye of Peter Burke.
When Peter visits Neal in jail and asks him how the coffee is, Neal responds, “instant.” Peter responds with a groan, “cruel and unusual.” So appreciate your cup of hot coffee while watching this partnership’s escapades.
Bloodline: Dinner with the fam
Think you have family drama of your own? Try sitting down with the fam and watching secrets unfold in the Rayburn family. Bloodline has a multi-generational target, so your teenage brother and mother alike will enjoy it, no matter what you’re eating.
Making a Murderer: Glass of wine
You’re gonna need a good buzz to get through this 10-episode long Netflix documentary. After spending 18 years in prison over a rape he didn’t commit, Steven Avery finds himself on trial again — but this time for murder.
Sons of Anarchy: Leftover pizza
You’re feeling like one of the boys, but also swooning over Jax Teller, so go grab a cold slice from the fridge and pretend you’re eating his face instead.
Law and Order SVU: Popcorn
With all the twists and turns in this show, SVU keeps your attention consistently. Popcorn is the perfect snack to munch on aimlessly while all your effort goes toward watching the TV. Step it up by getting a little crazy with these recipes.
Orange is the New Black: Mug cake
This show is a guilty pleasure of its own, so why not ball out with zero regrets and try out this quick recipe?
Criminal Minds: Fruit
It may not sound like the most ideal snack, but hey, your doctor and mom keep telling you to eat more of it. Fruits like pineapple, bananas and oranges are natural melatonin-producing fruits, and after an intense episode of Criminal Minds, you may need some help falling asleep.
