Must Binge TV Shows

Must Binge TV Shows

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, mine just happens to be binge-watching Netflix.

In the last year I have become a culprit of binge watching shows. I never use to sit on my couch for countless hours binge-watching shows, but once I started I just could not stop. I have lost track of the many shows I've watched and the amounts of episodes I have watched. I finished shows that have 9 seasons with 20 episodes or more within a month may be even less sometimes. So I would like to give the world an insight on the shows that got me hooked.

Greys Anatomy

If you are into medical this is definitely the show to watch for you. I must warn you, prepare yourself for the excessive amounts of tears you will shed throughout. So please grab a box of kleenex, sit down and enjoy a show you'll come to love.

Chasing Life

This is another tear jerker and even though they did not quite finish this show. It still had a good ending. This show is about April who is diagnosed with cancer. Her struggle and journey is showed throughout the show.

One Tree Hill

Seriously if you have not yet watched this show, you are missing out!! One Tree Hill is about two brothers and their uptight and rude father. This show is surrounded by basketball, high school, family, friends, and drama.

Shameless

This show is the talk of today. I know the whole world has become hooked on this show and honestly some of you reading this right now have probably watched it already. If you have not, please consider sitting down to watch it.

New Girl

This show will have you rolling on the floor laughing. Between Nick, Jess, and Schmidt they will have you cracking up. Sadly they are only 22-minute episodes but trust me there is a lot to watch. While watching this show I wish I had awesome roommates like this, life would not be boring at all.

Scandal

If you get into politics and crime shows this is definitely the next show you should be watching. This show will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you guessing.

Jane The Virgin

The plots twists will keep you thinking and this show is literally about Jane who is a virgin but becomes pregnant by accident in a clinic. The narration within this show will make you second guess if you should be watching it. I can promise that you will not regret starting this show.

This is a complete list of all the shows I have watched and the list continues to grow. As much as I tell myself to stop binge watching, it is just impossible to do so. If I am not in class or doing homework you can find me watching countless TV shows. I regret nothing, so next time you are trying to find something on Netflix to watch keep these shows in mind!

Not to be dramatic, but the Vine app was the best thing to ever happen to me.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Is The Comedy Gold We Love And Need, And That Has A Lot To Do With The Characters

Every character finds his or her own chemistry with each person in the precinct, and ultimately, that's what makes "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" a big old unique family.

For the past couple of months, I have been unapologetically binge-watching "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," mainly because it's finally available on Netflix where I live. And the more I watch this show, the more I realize its value culturally and comically.

First off, even as an avid watcher of crime shows, I know that the police procedural show has been done one too many times. There are endless tropes it has spawned, with the gruff lead detective falling in love with a snappy partner or the weirdly inventive murders that real cops would be shocked to deal with even once in their careers, let alone every week at 7 p.m. EST.

This is exactly why "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is such a relief to watch. It's fun, it doesn't take itself too seriously and it's smart.

Starting off with the cast, Andy Samberg plays Jake Peralta, one of the best — or if you asked him, the absolute best — detectives in the precinct. The only issue with him is that he's a man-child through and through, still unable to grow up or mature in most areas of his life.

Now, I've seen this stereotype played off time and time again — the goofy and hilarious leading man who really just needs to figure himself out, but requires the rest of the cast to act as only supporting characters in his one-man journey of self-discovery.

Thankfully, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" doesn't fall into that well-trodden trap — Jake's characteristic childlike tendencies, including a passionate love for orange soda, blue flavored drinks and gummy worms, are part of his personality through and through.

But he truly cares for his friends, as seen in the humility he shows when he apologizes to Charles Boyle, his best friend on the force who reveres him, and he owns up to his mistakes whenever he hurts somebody else. He is a layered character who's still figuring himself out — which makes his antics forgivable and sweet because of his true intentions.

And speaking of well-rounded characters, the entire cast is fully developed — aside from Hitchcock and Scully, both of whom mainly stay comfortably in their boxes as the lazy, idiotic detectives. And beyond being fully developed, which is hard enough to juggle in a show of so many characters, they are diverse.

This point has been brought up again and again. The show includes people of different ethnicities, and it gives them dignity as characters that goes beyond their race. Stereotypes have no place on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," not when you have a gay black captain and a sergeant built like a tank who braids his twin daughters' hair and is wholeheartedly dedicated to the farmer's market. There's a scary but kind Rosa, who is revealed to be bisexual, and Amy, who is a Type A personality that melts at the sight of a well-organized binder.

Essentially, all the characters in this show go beyond being entertaining. They are memorable — Gina, especially. The assistant of Captain Holt, her participation in a dance troupe called "Floorgasm," along with her stunning self-confidence, makes her one of the best characters on the show by far.

But the strongest point of this show is the relationships that are carefully crafted between the characters. Each episode has unlikely subplots involving different characters, and each relationship is built so that the show doesn't fall into monotone rhythms of characters who only have chemistry with certain other characters.

Rather, every character finds his or her own chemistry with each person in the precinct, and ultimately, that's what makes "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" a big old unique family.
