4 Binge Worthy Shows On Netflix

4 Binge Worthy Shows On Netflix

Stay in and snuggle with these great series

Whenever I finish a show on Netflix, it is always a struggle to find a new show to watch. After spending so much time watching these characters and investing yourself in the storyline, it came to an end and no other show seems to look as good. Here are four shows to try next!

1. Gilmore Girls.

Gilmore Girls has been one of my favorite shows recently. I was able to finish the series during winter break and I am glad I did. This show is comical, and dramatic at times. The show illustrates two different mother-daughter relationships. Lorelei and her mother, Emily, do not have the best relationship; where as, Lorelai and her daughter, Rory, are best friends. This series shows a series of complex relationships and the ongoings of an incredibly small town in Connecticut.

2. The People v. OJ Simpson: An American Crime Story.

I chose to begin watching this mini series because I have grown up hearing about the OJ case and did not know much about it. My parents remember the case because they lived through it. I knew how the story ended, but I did not see how they got to that point. It is amazing to see all of the steps the defense took to earn the not guilty verdict. I found this series intriguing because it showed how the public reacted to the case. I thought this show showed both attitudes regarding the case. I had only heard my parents’ perceptions on the case and this series showed how the case played out. The part that was a little disappointing was the fact that there were only 10 episodes.

3. Grey’s Anatomy.

I began watching Grey’s Anatomy last year and fell in love. I had put off watching it because it did not seem appealing. I am not a huge fan of drama, and this show is about as dramatic as it gets. I loved this because it shows the process of someone wanting to go into the medical field, while also creating scenarios that do not seem possible. That being said, the writer does do research to make sure what she is writing is realistic and could happen. The characters all have their own lives and problems, while also juggling being surgeons.

4. Friends.

My sister has watched Friends since she was little. She was obsessed, and always talked about it. I had seen some reruns on TV, but was never really interested. I did not end up watching the full series until a few years ago. I have now watched the complete series probably twice. Friends follows six friends living in New York. The show depicts issues regarding relationships, careers, and basically life in general. Even while depicting these issues, there is a layer of comedy in each episode. Also, each episode in the series does build off of the storyline; however, you can also watch a rerun or a couple out of order and you will not be confused.

10 Reasons Your Big Sister Is The Best Person In Your Life

"There is no better friend than a sister, and there is no better sister than you."

As much as I hate to admit it, my big sister might be sort-of, slightly, cooler than I am.

Sometimes. She's the one I call when I can't call mom and the only one in the family who can properly handle my attitude. Big sisters are the people you'd choose if they weren't already family, and here's why.

1. She is your first and truest friend.

Big sisters are (literally) there from day one. They see every dirty diaper, every bad haircut, and every melodramatic breakup. They deal with every bad day and drama queen attitude and still love you in the most unconditional way.

2. Her closet is your closet.

For some reason, her clothes always look better on you. Funny how that works, huh? With a big sister comes a big closet, and who doesn't love having a double wardrobe? I'd also like to take this opportunity to apologize for the clothes I will never give back (but I'm not really that sorry).

3. She knows what it's like to deal with your parents.

Anything you could possibly be going through, they went through it first. It's kind of like having an instruction manual or a key to the future. Either way, it's always nice to have someone who will always understand the struggle.

4. There are no boundaries.

Wanna dance around in your underwear all day? Cool. Life talks while she's on the toilet? Also cool. There's no awkward moments or changing in the bathroom with the door locked. There's just the kind of freedom that only comes with siblings.

5. Thanks to her, you know about all of the cool movies/music/fashion trends from years back.

Thanks to my sister, I have every Too $hort and Ludacris song you could ever think of downloaded on my phone. I've seen every cheesy '90s movie, and when a fad from 10 years ago comes back in, I already have the hookup.

6. She tells you like it is.

We all have those friends who tend to sugarcoat everything. Yeah, sisters don't do that. She's the first person to tell me when I'm making a terrible decision and that I really shouldn't triple text that boy again. She keeps it real with me and deals with my attitude, and that's why she's the best.

7. Her home is always open.

Sometimes you just need to get away from life and binge watch Netflix, and sometimes you need all of that plus your sister. She always has her door open when you're two seconds away from losing your mind, and she also has good takeout and a dog.

8. She knows what you're capable of.

My sister knows exactly who I am and what I can do. She knows when I'm not doing my best, and when I need to be set straight. She's always there to remind me who I am and what I'm capable of accomplishing. She's always been my biggest fan.

9. She's a lot cheaper than therapy.

For some reason, my sister always knows just what to say. Even if I don't see it at the time, she's usually right (don't tell her I said that). Big sisters are like wizards, somehow they always magically make you feel like life's gonna turn out alright in the end. If she wasn't already awesome at everything else, I'd suggest she be a therapist.

10. She will always be your go-to gal.

No matter the situation, she will always be by your side. There is nothing you could say or do to make a big sister leave, and that's why they're the best. Whether it's a speeding ticket, a mean girl or you just need to laugh, big sisters are always going to be there to lift your spirits and set you straight.

I couldn't make it without ya sis, I'm sorry for ratting you out on Thanksgiving that one time, and for running away at the zoo. Thanks for taking me to see Aaron Carter even though he's way too old to still be singing "I want Candy," and thank you always for being the best role model, sister and friend I could ask for.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
