Which TV shows have the best handbag eye candy?

Just a fun challenge I thought of while watching the first season of Dirty John last night. If you aren't familiar (I won't spoil anything because it's such a good show!!), one of the characters (based on a true story) is a handbag lover, and some of the subplots revolve around handbags!!! I can't speak to how accurate the portrayal outside of the handbags are, but in every scene, this character is carrying an iconic bag from Givency, Céline, or Balengencia (so far) although I haven't been able to tell if they are authentic.

Beyond SATC, what are some other shows with great handbags? I read recently that the actress who played Lilly in Gossip Girl actually used her own Hermes bags, so I do wonder how shows would get the budget for real designer bags.

OMG, The Good Wife and Scandal (Prada, Prada, Prada). As a lawyer, my whole sense of style came from the main character in that show. It didn’t just have Prada, it had some actually accessible bags that a lawyer might actually wear. Longchamp leather, Furla, etc. I love anything dark and structured!

Sweet Magnolias on Netflix has some great bags. I saw a Chloe saddle bag and a Balenciaga city bag but I couldn't identify everything myself but it's fun because the characters have different bags and outfits in almost every scene. If they were real people they would have a whole closet full of bags

Netflix Dirty John Season I. The main character had a safe for her stored handbags. She and her daughter constantly wore these bags throughout season. At one point, the daughter sells her handbag to fund a private detective... I can't remember if it was Chanel or Hermes.

The second most popular...Real Housewives franchise. Hollywood, NY and Atlanta are full of Gucci, Chanel, Hermes sightings.

Honestly, one of the reasons why I used to watch these shows. I liked to oogle the shoes and handbags.
