"Atypical" is a wholesome show that explores the lifestyle of 18-year-old Sam who is on the autism spectrum. As a coming of age story, this show also walks through his emotional journey of getting accepted to college, finding a girlfriend, getting bullied, and simply living in a world where not everyone accepts him for who he is. This show tackles issues like disability, sexuality, bullying, family rivalries, and different types of relationships. Through Sam's witted humor, "Atypical" normalizes a bunch of these issues which is what makes this show extremely enjoyable.

3. Money Heist (La Casa de Papel)
I binge watched this show in a couple of nights because of how amazing, crazy and complex the plot was. This crime drama takes place in Spain and focuses on thieves who took hostages and locked everyone up in the Royal Mint of Spain. This somewhat absurd, but extremely well written plan is led by a manipulative criminal mastermind named the "Professor" who desires to steal the gold that is locked up under the Royal Mint. Through its crazy plot twists and suspenseful cliffhangers, this show makes you care and feel for every character in the story- even the thieves. You start rooting for the thieves and the hostages as well, hoping that somehow there could be a compromise for both sides to eventually have a happy ending.

4. Itaewon Class
Itaewon Class showcases an amazing story that focuses on ex-convict Park Sae-ro-yi whose life has completely shifted after his father passes away. This story plot was very well written and hooks you up from the very beginning of the show. Throughout the journey, we see the growth of Park Sae-ro-yi who creates a 7 year plan to build his own restaurant and accumulate enough money to destroy the company that concealed the evidence supporting the murderer of his father. This show explores the idea of the rich vs. poor, good vs. evil, and the power of kindness. By the way, you might shed a few tears while watching this show.

5. Death Note
Death Note | OFFICIAL TRAILER www.youtube.com
This Netflix- Marvel series is about fictional superhero that is a lawyer during the day and a vigilante during the night. Matt Murdock is his real name and he swore to fight off the criminals that once killed his father. One of the main reasons why I extremely loved this show was because how relatable and realistic this superhero is presented. As a blind man, this daredevil slolely relies on his senses, except for sight of course, to fight criminals around the city. His physical strength and keen abilities to track down criminals and fight for different justices is what creates such an interesting and worthy plot.

This show focuses on a family of six kids and their alcoholic selfish father. Fiona Gallagher, the eldest daughter, takes responsibility to take care of the family through thick and thin. However, this is not a typical family that you would see and consists of so much drama in every episode. This show is able to cover issues like alcoholism, sexuality, domestic abuse, mental illnesses, death, family feud, poverty, and so much more.

8. The Good Place
This was an interesting show as it shows Eleanor Shellstrop arriving to the 'Good Place' after she dies. She soon realizes that she was sent here by accident and tries her best to maintain a good character so that she isn't kicked out from heaven. I loved this show because of its unique plot, its constant positivity, and its humor.
