Netflix TV Shows To Watch: 11 Series To Start Watching Over Winter Break

Let's face it: Unless your job is to watch TV (which is not as glamorous as it sounds), then there's no way you can catch all of TV's finest the first time around. But have no fear. If you missed critical greats "Breaking Bad" and "Downton Abbey" due to your hectic schedule, Netflix is here to help you feel culturally relevant again.

HuffPost TV has chosen 11 TV shows that we think would boost your entertainment appetite and there's a little something for everyone. Fans of Jane Lynch (pre-"Glee") and sardonic wit will enjoy Starz's underrated comedy "Party Down." It may have only had two seasons, but there's a rumored movie on the way.

And if you prefer cocktails, cigarettes and '60s mystique, then the Emmy-winning drama "Mad Men" is for you. We give you about three episodes until you can't stop humming the "Mad Men" theme song.

Meanwhile, fans of harmless teen fluff will lose themselves in the "OMG!"-inducing drama of "Pretty Little Liars" and "One Tree Hill."
