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:

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.

5. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"
