It's winter. You're curled up with your boo thing on the couch watching sappy movies on your "because you watched The Notebook" tab on your Netflix account. It's 27 degrees out, and you're falling for your bae faster than the snow outside, wondering how you could go a day without them.
But as the days have continued, you realize it's inevitable. You've watched all the Rom-Coms you possibly can and you're ready for something more realistic, just like your reality check when your winter boo broke your heart. Yes, now it's 102 degrees outside and you can't really tell if its sweat dripping down your face, or your tears.
If this sounds like you, welcome to the club. So, here's my HUGE shout-out to Netflix for getting me through this sticky summer with these series I can totally fall for.
Never will you ever look at high school or small towns the same. This series brings everything you could possibly want in a TV show. Romance, action and even a special musical episode make this a must-see series. You will be drooling over the male man-candy leads, Archie and Jughead. Riverdale can be found on Netflix, with a new season reportedly starting in September.
Starting with the first episode, Scream will have you hiding behind your covers. Another murder mystery set in high school will have you on your toes all 22 episodes. Fall in love with each character, but don't get attached. Nobody's safe from this town's killer. Check it out on Netflix, but be sure to lock your doors first!
