Top 10 Worthy Netflix Shows To Binge This Summer

Even if we're working all summer, we still need that nice little thing to look forward to.


Lets get binging!!!

1. The Office

An old favorite, The Office has always been there for us and will continue to be so long as Netflix keeps renewing the rights, or we just buy it on blu-ray or digitally. I mean....who can't get enough of Michael Scott, Dwight, or the relationship to end all relationships, Jim & Pam! Michael Scott antics keep me quoting The Office day in and day out!

2. Friends

What better way to spend the summer than with a bunch of friends? Now Friends may sound or feel overrated, but this writer can surely attest that it isn't! The first few episodes will grab you in along for a ride that will tug at your heart strings and funny bone! No need to cover your eyes for this one!

3. Stranger Things 

Turn your world upside down! With Season 3 not the horizon, lets get Seasons 1 & 2 under our belts and watching the upcoming of Eleven, Mike, and the adventures they embark with their friends! The world will never be the same. The only thing I wish for Season 3, is more Dustin and Steve bromance. It was probably an unintended thing the show runners tried but boy did it pay off, because it was the best thing out of the last season!

4. Sherlock (BBC)

Sherlock may start off a tad slow, but after the first meeting of Dr. John Watson and Sherlock Holmes, the show really kicks into high gear. Each season has only 3 episodes each but they are all an hour and a half long, making them like mini movies! I've gotten many friends into this show and it really is a needle in a haystack. It's smart, witty, funny, and most of all, heart touching. You can't go wrong with Londons detective!

5. Our Planet

I know its just a nature show, but hear me out...or read me out. Personally, I've found this show to be quite relaxing. Not only is it incredibly shot but there's fantastic music in the background as the narrator explains the life of many different land and sea creatures. The show can be very zen and help you chillax from work or school. But not only can you enjoy nature in the comfort of your own home but you might learn something along the way.

6. American Horror Story

American Horror Story is a different type of horror! While there are the cheap scares, like jump scares you see in the gif above, it's probably more psychological than anything. And what better way to induce anxiety than by watching someone open a door they're not supposed to?

7. Parks and Recreation

Treat yo self to some of the best that television has to offer, that isn't the office. Fall in love with real characters who have struggles and feelings and watch them overcome them slowly but surely! Treat yo self, you'll thank me later.

8. Bob Ross

The world didn't deserve Bob Ross, but his and our generation surely needed him. His calm demeanor and encouragement was something that audiences everywhere need. Instead of watching some violent or destructive show, why not put yourself in a place of zen and enjoy creating what you see around you?

9. Daredevil

The Iron Man of Netflix. Daredevil set the standard and precedent for the Marvel Netflix shows. It's violence (I know I know, I'd disappoint Bob Ross) was something that blew me away on first viewing. Not to mention it's the grandfather - I think - of hallway fight scenes. This isn't one to be missed.

10. The Umbrella Academy

Believe it or not, this is based on a comic book! However, it certainly doesn't take the standard superhero route. It starts off with a murder that spirals into a grand conspiracy. The powers are pretty unique, the characters are real and interesting. The Academy's pretty entertaining and there's a talking chimp! What else could you ask for!?

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
