8 Best Netflix Series

Who doesn’t love to binge watch a Netflix show? It can be the most relaxing, suspenseful, and exciting time in someone’s week. On the downside though, there is nothing harder than accepting the ending of an incredible series. To help aid the pain, I’ve listed some popular Netflix shows (in no particular order) for your new obsession!

1. Stranger Things

One of the most recent additions to Netflix that captivated the online audience was “Stranger Things,” a science fiction fantasy show that has audiences hooked. One of the young boys goes missing, and the small town turns upside down. A variation of secret experiments, supernatural forces, and strange things uncovers a mystery. The second season will premier in 2017.

2. One Tree Hill

For a calmer, more romantic, reality type of show, I highly recommend “One Tree Hill.” This is one of those series that takes a few episodes to get into it – but stick it out because it gets so good! Heartthrob Chad Michael Murray stars in the show as “Lucas” who tries to live his basketball dreams while handling the drama of a small town. In the series you will see real life situations that high school students face such as divorced parents, heartbreak, drama, athletic team dilemmas, and much more. As very relatable plot, the characters will have you riding their emotional rollercoaster with them.

3. Breaking Bad

Be careful, “Breaking Bad” is a total binge-worthy show and will have you staring at a computer screen for days. Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher, does not have the financial ability to support his family, especially with a baby on the way. Once he finds out he has terminal cancer, he turns to drastic measures to get money. White transforms an old RV into a meth lab on wheels to support himself, his family, and his illness.

4. Grey's Anatomy

“Grey’s Anatomy,” a medical drama series, follows a group of doctors at a Seattle hospital. The characters deal with life-or-death situations on the daily and look to each other for help and comfort. This emotionally gripping show will exemplify how life is not just black and white, but many shades of grey.

5. Friends

If you want a good laugh – correction, the BEST laugh – “Friends” will not disappoint. This 10 season show based in New York surrounds six best friends as they go through situations dealing with jobs, relationships, friends, and more. If you watch, you will understand why “we were on a break” is one of the greatest lines said on television.

6. Friday Night Lights

For a family and teen drama, “Friday Night Lights” will have you begging for more. Located in fictional town of Dillon, Texas, the sport of football and the aspects of a small town bring the community together but also tear it apart. The featured family – high school football coach Eric Tyler and principal Tami Tyler – struggled to balance family, work, and pressures of the community.

7. Scandal

“Scandal” is exactly what it sounds like: scandalous. This series is full of keeping secrets under wraps to protect the elite. One of the featured characters Olivia Pope opens her own crisis-management firm, which is ironic because she struggles with managing the crises in her own life.

8. Orange Is The New Black

Winning several awards and nominations, “Orange Is The New Black” is known as one of the most watched original Netflix series. Trading suits for prison orange, the stars of the show adjust to life behind bars by making friends with very interesting characters. Based in a minimum-security women’s federal prison, the series revolves around Piper Chapman who was sentenced for a drug related issue.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
