Who needs to go out? You can get your fix of glorious guy candy at home. In your comfiest sweatpants. While eating chips. And they’re never going to judge you…
Suits, five seasons.
THE SMOOTH CRIMINAL
His closet’s packed with ridiculously slick suits and hair gel, and his office is full of scheming, witty banter and expensive basketballs. See how long it takes you to fall head over heels for sexy, sly lawyer Harvey Specter, played to perfection by Gabriel Macht. CLEO’s prediction? A New York minute.
The Walking Dead, six seasons.
You never know when a zombie apocalypse is going to strike – but it would be nice if Steven Yeun was there to save us in real life. As survivor Glenn, he’ll wow you with his slaying skills. You’ll also be loving his and Maggie’s (Lauren Cohan) sweet hook-up. Spoiler alert: they find love in a hopeless place.
The Wire, five seasons. The Office, nine seasons. Luther, four seasons.
He was brilliant as a drug kingpin in critically acclaimed drama The Wire, hilarious as the boss of a paper company in the US version of The Office and Golden Globewinning as a tortured London detective in Luther. And he’s well fit, so just binge-watch Idris Elba’s entire back catalogue.
Treme, four seasons. Orphan Black, three seasons. Game of Thrones, five seasons. (New season premiering in April 2016.)
THE TRIPLE THREAT
Dutchman Michiel Huisman is H-O-T. His big
break came in New Orleans-set drama Treme, then he popped up on cult
sci-fi hit Orphan Black… but we all know him as the finest bedmate
Westeros has ever seen. It’s not enough that Daenerys (Emilia Clarke)
has three dragons – she’s landed the dreamiest dude, too.
Orange Marmalade, one season.
Still reminiscing about your favourite scenes in Twilight? Then you’ll be sure to lap up Orange Marmalade, a Korean teen drama about – you guessed it – vampires. Although Yeo Jin-goo plays a normal human being in the show, his acting chops give Robert Pattinson a run for his money. Edward who, now?
Girls, four seasons. (New season premiering in February 2016.)
THE TORTURED ARTIST
Before he went over to the Dark Side, Kylo Ren – sorry, Adam Driver – played Adam Sackler, Lena Dunham’s terrible boyfriend on the acclaimed HBO series, Girls. His character is a recovering alcoholic with an addictive personality, which makes for some very intense scenes. He’s also topless most of the time, so there’s that.
Supernatural, 11 seasons.
THE BABIN’ BROTHERS
Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) are so smokin’ hot, they’ve even inspired a pervy genre of erotic fan fiction devoted to their other-worldly adventures. While you might not have the urge to pen creepy porn about them on the interweb, you’ll still enjoy watching the rugged duo fight demons, ghosts, vampires, spirits and all things, well, supernatural, to a rocking ’70s-inspired soundtrack, thanks to the spot-on chemistry between the two dashing leads. After all, there’s a (OK, two) reason(s) why Supernatural has been on our screens since 2005 and is still going strong with its 11th season... instead of stopping at season three, as the creator of the series had originally planned.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, three seasons.
THE CLASS CLOWN
He cut his comedy teeth on the legendary sketch show Saturday Night Live, and now Andy Samberg is catching bad guys – in the most hilarious of ways – as Detective Jake Peralta. Jake is a wise-cracking Brooklyn cop who harbours a not-so-secret crush on his strict, no-nonsense colleague. Naaaaaw, cute alert!
Nashville, four seasons.
There are many reasons to watch this soapy-but-awesome country music drama – Connie Britton’s hair, Hayden Panettiere’s Golden Globenominated sass – but the main drawcard to watch Nashville is Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio). He’s a tall drink of water with a big heart and the voice of an angel. Your ears (and eyes) will thank you.
Silicon Valley, two seasons.
Move over The Big Bang Theory, there’s a new band of loveable geeks in town led by Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), a programmer who developed a compression algorithm that looks like the next big tech advancement. Oh, and he happens to look like a young Hugh Grant.
New Girl, five seasons.
He works in a dingy bar, is pretty hopeless at relationships and might only shower once a week, but something about his many fails makes Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) a complete winner. You’ll love watching his and Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) relationship evolve over the course of the show. And anytime he’s after a, err, new girl – well, we’re definitely available.
