20 Shows To Binge Watch RIGHT NOW

I may have waisted years of my life watching more TV then I can remember, but hey, I made this really cool list... so that's something!

20 Shows To Binge Watch RIGHT NOW

I am proud to say that I have binge-watched just about everything there is on both Netflix and Hulu. Starting in eighth grade with "90210", I feel that in my 19 years of existence I have seen most TV shows. I am now happy to share my list of 20 shows you need to binge-watch right now! Living vicariously through characters is just like really living your life!

1. "Saved By The Bell"

"Saved By The Bell" is a total classic. 10/10 would recommend. This show follows total babe Zach Morris and his friends through his middle, high school and college years. This show is adorable and I am beyond obsessed with it to this day. Mario Lopez is also on the show and is a total cutie so please please go watch right now!

2. "90210"

I've only watched the remake of "90210" but I heard they're both pretty great. This was the first show I ever binge-watched, even though the second season was the absolute worst. This show follows a group of high schoolers in California who live the most insane extravagant lives that are the most fun to watch from the outside

3. "The Secret Life of an American Teenager"

For me, this show was insanely interesting to watch because these teenagers lived lives so completely different than mine. "Secret Life" follows Annie Juergens who gets pregnant in high school. It is one of my favorite shows I have ever watched.

4. "Parks and Recreation"

"Parks and Rec" is the funniest show I have ever seen with a unique concept on television in my opinion. If you need to laugh, watch "Parks and Rec", nuff said. #TreatYoSelf

5. "Gossip Girl"

Being from New Jersey, I sort of always felt like "Gossip Girl" could be my life. This show follows the socialites of New York City and the insane lives they live. It has similar feel to "90210" but with an east coast vibe. Also, it has Chuck and Nate which no one complains about.

6. "Prison Break"

I was skeptical of starting prison break because I hate scary shows but this show pleasantly surprised me. This show is really what the title implies, about Michael Scofield breaking out of prison. It's so much better than I could ever describe.

7. "White Collar"

I love "White Collar". "White Collar" is the absolute best show that has ever been on TV ever. It follow's Neil Caffrey, a passionate art loving felon, and Peter Burke, an FBI agent. The two are literally the perfect pair and anyone who likes anything, in general, will LOVE "White Collar".

8. "The OC"

Okay, I lied. "The OC" is the greatest show ever. Once again, following the elite teens of Orange County in California with Ryan, the outcast, of the group. All of the teens are dealing with different issues and it truly is a fantastic show. 10/10 would recommend.

9. "Community"

"Community" is a hilarious comedy following a group of misfits in community college. It truly is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen.

10. "Melissa and Joey"

I watched "Melissa and Joey" years ago but I loved it so much. The characters also have cool names if that's something you're into which I totally am. The show is hilarious with an awesome family type dynamic.

11. "Workaholics"

I am obsessed with "Workaholics". I started it by accident and it was the best accident. This is the funniest show on television that follows a very, um, uh...unique?..type of office. Anyone with a sense of humor will love "Workaholics".

12. "The League"

I have never once cared what so ever about football until I started "The League". This show is about a group of men and their fantasy football league. It honestly is so funny and I would recommend anyone to watch it.

13. "Happy Endings"

This show is not necessarily what the title implies. "Happy Endings" follows a group of friends in Chicago and the hilarious lives that they lead. The best part of this show is that it makes your unstable life seem so much more stable.

14. "Nurse Jackie"

"Nurse Jackie" is truly a special show. It is a nurse dealing with a crazy life and drug addiction. It is dark and funny and sad and truly a phenomenal show,

15. "United States of Tara"

"The United States of Tara" is a very different show from anything I have ever seen before. It deals with mental illness and family issues. I was not sure of what to expect from "The United States of Tara" but I was pleasantly surprised of what it was.

16. "Blue Mountain State"

"Blue Mountain State" may have caused me to lose brain cells but in the really good kind of way. This show is about a college football team and their crazy antics that they get into. It was really really a great show and there is even a movie!

17. "Royal Pains"

"Royal Pains" is really really one of my favorite shows ever. It is about a concierge doctor in the Hamptons, Hank, and the company he creates, HankMed. It has drama, it has love, and it is funny. Really really great show.

18. "Dexter"

"Dexter" is the only scary show I have ever seen. I did not finish "Dexter" because I couldn't close my eyes in the shower but I am a total wimp. "Dexter" is about a serial killer who happens to also be blood splatter expert who solves crimes.

19. "Freaks and Geeks"

Total classic. I loved "Freaks and Geeks" because not only how awesome the show is but the cast is literally filled with young stars. The show follows a group of high school misfits. James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segel, and my favorite John Francis Daley. Maybe this is my favorite show.

20. "Hart of Dixie"

I love "Hart of Dixie" so much. Okay this is my favorite show. This show follows Zoe Hart, a big city doctor, who moves to Alabama. There is an amazing love triangle and a character named Lemon. Who could ask for more?

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

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)

Paramount Pictures

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.
