5 Binge Worthy Shows

5 Binge Worthy Shows

Who needs to be productive when these shows are available to stream?

Ladies and gentlemen, it is finally summer time. For most colleges, the spring semester has ended and finals are almost over. It is time for those of us who worked tediously and meticulously the entire semester to turn off our brains and watch some quality shows. Here are five binge worthy shows that you should check out during your free time:

1. Hemlock Grove

To begin, we should start with a show that is easy to access and easy on the eyes. “Hemlock Grove” is a horror series on Netflix. With over 118 million users worldwide, Netflix is pretty easy to access. If you are like me and unwilling to pay for the service, you can watch with a friend, it is scary after all. The show stars the heavenly faces of actors Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, and Famke Janssen. Without ruining the entire plot, I can say that the show is full of horror, supernatural beings, and very dry humor. All three seasons are on Netflix, so it only takes a full and sleepless weekend to finish the entire series.

2. House

Who does not like a rebellious obsessive drug addicted diagnostician? “House” is a show about Gregory House and the group of medical professionals he drives crazy day in and day out. House is the doctor that gets the cases that other doctors are unable to solve. The show is full of medical anomalies, dry humor, and great costume makeup. If you like atypical medical dramas, this is definitely the show for you. The full eight seasons of this show can be found on Amazon Prime and Hulu.

3. Hannibal

NBC’s “Hannibal” is a masterpiece of a show. It is full of beautiful scenes, spectacular editing, ostentatious vocabulary, and awesome actors. “Hannibal” is a TV series based on the movie The Silence of The Lambs and a novel entitled Red Dragon. The show focuses on Will Graham who is played by Hugh Dancy. Will is a troubled “special agent” for the FBI who is in a cat and mouse chase with a cannibalistic serial killer. If you have ever seen or heard of The Silence of The Lambs, then you will not be surprised to find out that Will’s therapist Dr. Hannibal Lecter is in fact the cannibal serial killer. Do not worry, the show is about so much more than that. The show is a psychological thriller that is almost impossible to not binge in a very long and very sleepless week. The entire series can be streamed on Amazon Prime. Pro tip for when you are watching: try not to fall in love with any of the characters. They will either die or let you down. You have been warned.

4. Sneaky Pete

This show is a surprisingly good Amazon Prime original. “Sneaky Pete” is about a professional con artist who steals the identity of his cellmate who happened to try to rob a gun range. Pete Murphy is the name of the cellmate. The con artist’s name is Marius. Of course Marius has a last name, but it is far too difficult to spell or pronounce, as demonstrated in the show. Marius, being a professional con artist, has a lot of enemies and a lot of baggage. Marius takes on Pete’s identity because it is convenient and he believes that Pete’s life may be an escape. Not to ruin the entire second season for you, but Marius is so wrong.

5. The Twilight Zone

I think it is only fitting to end with a classic. “The Twilight Zone” is a 1959 horror, supernatural, and science fiction thriller series. The show covers a diverse range of supernatural beings and circumstances. Each episode follows a new story and a new person. This show is binge worthy because not only is it incredibly vivid even in black in white, but it is also narrated by the serne voice of Rod Serling. Remember, any place and all places can be the twilight zone. The 150+ episode show can be streamed on Amazon Prime video or it can be caught on the SyFy channel.

There you have it. Five shows that are definitely worth watching. I know, many of us have summer jobs and summer classes, but you should take some time to relax and let your brain be mindless.

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
