What To Watch On Netflix After You've Finished 'Stranger Things'

Three other shows that might fix this hole in your life.

What To Watch On Netflix After You've Finished 'Stranger Things'
"Stranger Things"

By now you have probably finished the Netflix original "Stranger Things" and can't decide what to watch next. I know that I was stuck in a black hole for a while after I finished my (first) time binge watching "Stranger Things." I felt like nothing could compare with its on point casting, '80s nostalgia and Spielberg-like directing. However, you shouldn't fear. There are many other things on Netflix that might fix this hole in your life.

Here are three shows that really reminded me of "Stranger Things."

1. "The Killing"

So in the show "The Killing," a teenage girl is missing in Seattle, Washington. Homicide detective Sarah Linden is about to retire from her job and move across the country when she is assigned to investigate the details of the case with her would-be-replacement, Stephan Holder. As Linden and Holder learn more about the details surrounding the girl's disappearance, Linden finds herself with the case.

This reminds me of "Stranger Things" because of the dark tones. While "The Killing" is a bit more serious and deals more in real-life criminal events than "Stranger Things," it still left an impression similar to "Stranger Things."

2. "The X-Files"

FBI agent Dana Scully gets a new assignment working with fellow FBI agent "Spooky" Fox Mulder, who has a penchant for working on out-of-the-ordinary cases. Teaming up, Mulder and Scully investigate strange cases, many which force Scully to question her otherwise rational explanations of criminal events.

This reminds me of "Stranger Things" because of the paranormal aspects of the show and the semi-outcast characters. It also reminds me of "Stranger Things" because of the character development.

3. "Fringe"

The Department of Homeland Security and FBI have created the Fringe Division task force, which investigates unexplained and mysterious events related to a parallel universe. The show follows the team as they use experimental "fringe science" to investigate "the Pattern."

This reminds me of the Upside-Down in "Stranger Things." However, in "Fringe" the parallel universe isn't quite as horrific as the Upside-Down. But it is definitely strange.

Which of these shows will you be binging first?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
