5 Series That Are Perfect For Your Next Netflix Binge

Yes, "Netflix". I am still watching

If you haven't had a desire to sit down for a good Netflix binge, you're lying to yourself. There's really nothing more offensive than when you get that little black screen from Netflix asking if you're still watching. If you find a new favorite show, you're destined to spend a little too much time staring at your computer screen. So, if you're going to procrastinate, you might as well procrastinate with an interesting series or movie. Here are some ideas for your next binge-watching sesh:

1. "90210"

If you liked "Gossip Girl" or "One Tree Hill" this series should be next in line for you. It's the perfect balance of teenage drama, hot guys, and interesting plot lines all surrounding the lives of teenagers in Los Angeles. It will have you entertained and you will be sure to go through the five seasons much quicker than expected

2. "Dexter"

If you're one who is drawn to crime series like "CSI" or "Criminal Minds", then "Dexter" is calling your name. The series follows a Miami based forensic analysis who also lives a second life as a serial killer. Don't worry, he only kills bad guys. This series is a commitment, as it consists of 8 seasons.

However, each season follows a different mystery, which is as entertaining as it sounds. While it might seem strange at first, the title character, Dexter will become your favorite anti-hero.

3. "Queer Eye"

This show is for all of you reality TV lovers. "Queer Eye" is back with a new fab five that has all of the same humor as the original series. Each episode follows the transformation of a man's fashion, lifestyle, house and other aspects all directed by the group of 5 men. It's full of laughs, and surprisingly will get you teared eyed at parts.

4. "Black Mirror"

If you like something that will always keep you on your toes, the British thriller series, "Black Mirror" is your next binge. Each episode has a different storyline and cast, so basically they're all mini-movies. By the end of an episode, you will be lost for words because this show is not short of twists and turns.

5. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"

Since you've probably already watched "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation" you need a new comedy series in your life. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" follows Kimmy living in New York City after spending most of her life underground with a cult. She navigates through the city, social life, and interesting characters; providing plenty of one-liners. It's the perfect series to have going on while doing something else or if you just have time to watch something for a half hour.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
