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.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
