I Asked 13 College Students What Their Favorite Netflix Binge is

Everything you need to keep you occupied this summer.

13 Reasons Why https://www.instagram.com/p/BkoFh3LllhZ/?hl=en&taken-by=13reasonswhy

Let's be honest: we all love Netflix. Even though we often complain that it doesn't have all the shows we want or that it keeps taking down the good movies, we still love watching Netflix, whether it be after a long day or to avoid doing homework. Netflix is extremely popular amongst us college students and I'm always looking for new shows to watch besides the common classic ones, so I asked a few college students for their most recent favorites on Netflix.

1. The Office

Yeah, it's popular and overrated, but never gets old. All the "that's what she said" jokes and the Jim/Pam drama will always keep us entertained. And the best part? You can start at any episode and still know EVERYTHING that's going on! Personally, I don't find it as interesting as others, especially after Michael leaves, but I'll still watch a few episodes here and there.

2. Dear White People

Not to watch if you're easily offended, but this show highlights racial conflicts a group of black students face in a majority white college. Might not be for everyone, but I've watched a couple episodes, and it's not the worst...or the best either.

3. Arrested Development

I've watched the first 3 seasons and honestly fell in love with the show. It's just the punniest with such an outrageous, out-of-the-world storyline. The fourth season on the other hand...

4. Friends

Need I say more?

5. Death in Paradise

One of my personal favorites, this is a British-French detective show set in the beautiful Caribbean islands. It is very interesting with a new murder plot every episode featuring quirky and funny detectives, as well as lovely British slang and humor.

6. Great British Baking Show

Another British show. Great! I've never watched an episode, but who doesn't love cooking shows and British accents?

7. Narcos

Another popular show that gives a great history lesson as well. I remember watching some episodes for my World Geography class and actually understanding the context of it.

8. Parks and Recreation

Similar to The Office, this show is full of dry humor and quirky characters. Who doesn't love bosses who take themselves wayyy too seriously?

9. Riverdale

I remember when I used to devotedly watch every new episode each week. The love triangles and attractive characters might keep you intrigued, but the plot just died down in the end, in my honest opinion. And it will hit you in the nostalgia feels as it stars one of my favorite former Disney Channel actors, Cole Sprouse.

10. Stranger Things

No explanation needed.

11. Family Guy

I'm glad someone said this, because this is definitely my favorite animated series. From Peter Griffin's silly antics to the Brian/Stewie drama, this show will always keep you laughing.

12. Breaking Bad

Not my current personal favorite, but I was definitely a fan back when it aired. But I'm always down to watch my favorite episode of the whole series, "Better Call Saul."

13. 13 Reasons Why

If you're not familiar with this show, where have you been? It covers the lives of high schoolers after one of their friends commits suicide and leaves them all mysterious tapes on why she did it. Critics praise it for shedding light on serious issues amongst teens while others say it's too serious and slightly unrealistic.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
