13 Shows You Should Watch On Netflix This Summer
Jo Guldi

Last week I wrote on the best TV-Shows on Hulu to watch this summer which you can find here. Below are shows on Netflix that I and my friends have watched and enjoyed that we think you will too.

1. “TrollHunters-Tales of Arcadia”

A mix of supernatural and science fiction, this TV-Show has gained a cult following of people who were not very old or even alive in the 1980’s when this quirky and deep TV-Show is set. It’s one of my favorites.

3. “The Office”

The American adaptation of the British “Office,” this show is a favorite to many and has short episodes which allow for a quick watch or a multiple hour binge.

4. “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

A part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this show follows a group of close-knit co-workers as they work behind the scenes of the mess that the Avengers and other superheroes and aliens leave behind.

5. “DareDevil”

A Netflix original, this show is darker than the well known Marvel Cinematic Universe, but still manages to incorporate humor and deep characters that make this show a joy to watch.

6. “A Series of Unfortunate Events”

Based on Leminy Snicket’s Book series A Series of Unfortunate Events, this show is quirky and mildly frustrating as the Baudelaire children keep facing humorous misfortune after humorous misfortune.

7. “NCIS”

Not your typical cop show, this show tracks the tight-knit Navy Criminal Investigative Service as they investigate crimes and grow as people.

8. “Person of Interest”

What if a machine could keep tabs on everything electronic and know who was in danger before it happened so it could be stopped? In this show, it exists and the few people who know about it use the machine to save as many as they can, without being caught themselves.

9. “Friends”

A classic, this show follows a group of friends as they struggle through life in New York City. (Warning: Some episodes feature adult content).

10. “Dark Matter”

This obscure Sci-Fi show is based on a crew who all lose their memories and have to work together to survive as they try to regain their memories.

11. “Merlin”

Based around the legend of King Arthur in Camelot, the main character is a wizard whose life purpose is to keep King Arthur alive.

12. “Sherlock”

A modern adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes in modern day London. For longtime fans of Sherlock Holmes this show is a delight with elements of different stories incorporated in each episode.

13. “The Flash”

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
