Shows that have cracked 200 episodes

DES-10665_tb_200Eps

Last month you may have caught our blog article with 10 series that reached 100+ episodes. There were so many amazing series to choose from that I just couldn’t narrow it down to just ten. So this month, I’ve packaged together 10 series that hit the “over 200 episodes” milestone for your enjoyment!

There were so many amazing shows that picking just ten was extremely difficult! To make things a little easier, we chose a selection of faves from the past as well as shows that you can find and start watching now on Fetch and Australian streaming services.

With over 200 episodes, there’s no way you’ll escape without getting heavily invested in these shows – in fact I can almost guarantee you’ll be devastated when these series come to an end. Luckily we’ve included some that are still in the making! Ready, set, binge watch!

    I would like to thank Iinet for providing a great ISP. I have been with Iinet from the very first year when it was run out of the backyard shed. Here I am about to get NBN services in my area and I’m hoping this new service will be just as good if not better than the ADSL2 2 Plus I have right now.
    Keep up the great services and customer support that’s 2nd to none.
