As much as we bingers love Netflix, eventually we all reach the point where it seems as though we've already seen everything worth watching. Well, lucky for you, I have compiled a list of 3 very entertaining TV shows that are worth a watch. Ranked in no particular order, here are 3 Netflix shows that have my personal stamp of approval.

Safe

Safe, starring Michael C. Hall, is a thriller/ mystery set in upper-class suburbia somewhere in the UK. Essentially what we have here is Dexter if Dexter fathered two daughters and picked up a weak British accent. Tom (Micahel C. Hall), discovers that his daughter is missing along with her current boyfriend. As he investigates their disappearances, the town's dark secrets start to emerge. Michael C. Hall plays a very compelling father who would do just about anything to keep his daughters safe. The mini-series has 8 50-minute episodes making it very "bingeable." The acting and production value are what make this show a must-watch.

The Haunting of Hill House

I shouldn't be picking favorites, but yeah, this one is my favorite. Imagine if you will, American Horror Story if American Horror Story wasn't wildly inconsistent with chaotic writing and extremely weak character development. The Haunting of Hill House is what American Horror Story should have been. This anthology series closely follows and analyzes the dynamics of the very traumatized and troubled family "The Craines." The Craine family, comprised of two daughters, two sons, and their father, are forced to face their past demons metaphorically and literally. Throughout the season the view is given the opportunity to really empathize with and understand the complexes of each Craine sibling. Aside from its vast achievements in drama, this show is downright scary and disturbing at times. Because the audience feels so well acquainted with the characters, the events that transpire feel all the more significant. With much complexity and intrigue, The Haunting of Hill House leaves you feeling greatly satisfied and fulfilled at its end.

 Dead To Me

Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini lead a mystery/thriller surrounding the loss of Jen's (Christina Applegate) husband. Shortly after the death of her husband Jen attends a support group for the loss of loved ones and meets a woman named Judy (Linda Cardellini). Despite possessing polar opposite personalities, the two quickly develop an unconventional friendship that ultimately leads to a whirlwind of secrets and plot twists. The two female leads absolutely steal the show and deliver killer performances. After watching two episodes I was absolutely engaged with the development of the characters as well as plot. You'll be on the edge of your seat throughout much of this series as a new secret is revealed at the end of each episode. "Dead to Me" is interestingly produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Adam McKay, director of "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," starring Will Ferrell, inserts a very creative easter egg paying homage to the 2004 comedy.

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.

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.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
