Best Comic Book-Based ‘Binge-Watch Worthy’ TV Shows for Couples

Are you looking for a romantic partner? Does your idea of the perfect date night revolve around cozy couches and a TV remote rather than some overpriced restaurant? You must get into digital dating. This environment represents such a convenient way to meet like-minded individuals. Discreet messaging channels are perfect for interacting with prospective partners. Chat rooms are always welcoming to newcomers. When you sign up for a one night friend dating site you’ll find a diverse range of people on your wavelength. After establishing a rapport, you’ll be eager to plan your first date. With that in mind, how about suggestions for shows to binge together based on exciting comic books?

The Boys

Based on a hugely popular comic book by Garth Ennis, this first binge-worthy suggestion for your date night is part superhero action, part black comedy. The Boys referred to are a team of vigilantes tasked with taking down superheroes or ‘Supes’ who are abusing their powers. This project almost never saw the light of day. Originally posited as a movie, ‘creative differences’ led to the whole idea being shelved until none other than American comedy legend Seth Rogan stepped in and offered to be a producer for a TV mini-series. After Amazon Prime secured the rights, the rest was history.


Inspired by bedtime stories told to the creator, David Weil, by his grandmother, a survivor of the notorious Nazi death camp, Auschwitz, this rollicking adventure is all about the enduring battle to bring the perpetrators of the ‘final solution’ to justice. With a stellar cast, including Al Pacino as the Holocaust survivor recruiting a team to hunt the Nazi fugitives intent on establishing a ‘fourth Reich’ in the USA, this will have you on the edge of your seats. Logan Lerman plays the fresh-faced Jonah, a maths genius, who sees that you sometimes have to be bad to fight evil.


Batman is less a TV series (that is most definitely binge-worthy) and more a franchise, or series of them! Unless you happen to have emerged from some sort of lengthy period of sleep sickness, you’ll understand the basics. Batman lives in Gotham City and is the alter-ego of the philanthropic, Bruce Wayne. In the original comic book, the titular hero swears vengeance on the criminal underworld responsible for the murder of his parents when he was a child. In this dark dimension, all sorts of supporting characters have emerged over the years, including Joker and The Penguin. Steeped in wonderful characterisation and gloomy cityscapes, you and your significant other will soon find yourselves immersed in this intriguing twilight dimension of good versus evil.


Based on the Marvel comic character, Legion (aka David Haller), the storyline concerns a man diagnosed as schizophrenic when young. He is also a mutant – in the DC universe, a human with the X-gene that prompts superhuman behavior. As Haller battles to control his powers, a shadowy government agency pursues him, eager to harness his traits for their ends. Along the way, there are all sorts of enthralling sub-plots that will keep you bingeing on date night.

The Sandman

Another series courtesy of DC Comics, The Sandman is centered on the story of Morpheus, a character who personifies dreams (one of the seven so-called Endless: Death, Desire, Despair, Delerium, Destruction, Dream and Destiny). After he is captured during an occult ritual at the time of the First World War, he is imprisoned for over a century, before escaping and setting out to restore order. Does this sound far-fetched? Of course it is, but that’s the beauty of this fantastical plotline – you’ll be hooked on the twists and turns.
