10 TV Series To Binge Before You Go Back To School

Summer is coming to an end, but that doesn't mean you don't have time for a few more shows.

10 TV Series To Binge Before You Go Back To School


All of the following shows are three seasons or less, making it super easy to binge them before you have to get back to classes.

1. Stranger Things (Netflix)

If you haven't seen this show, you've either been intentionally avoiding it, or you've been living under a rock. Either way, it's time to watch it.

2. Big Mouth (Netflix)

If you like crude humor and cartoons, this one is for you. It's about the journey of hormone-filled teenagers, and it's hilarious.

3. Freaks and Geeks (Amazon)

Okay, hear me out. Sure, you might have to actually buy this series, but I promise it's so worth it. You get to see the beginnings of so many great actors' careers, and the good storyline is a plus.

4. Seven Seconds (Netflix)

I'm actually binging this right now. It follows a group of white police officers, one of which has accidentally hit a black teenager with his car, who are trying to cover up this crime. It's a drama with just the right amount of comedy.

5. Who Is America? (HBO)

Sasha Baron Cohen is not messing around. In this borderline career-ending show, he catches political figures throughout the US doing the worst things.

6. The Haunting of Hill House (Netflix)

Coming from someone who is scared of literally everything, this is one of my favorite shows to date. There are just enough creepy/eerie things to keep you drawn in, but not enough to give you nightmares. Plus, the cinematography in this show is phenomenal.

7. 11.22.63 (Hulu)

James Franco stars in this series about a school teacher who goes back in time to try and stop the assassination of JFK. It's got romance, comedy, suspense, and just about any other genre, you could think of.

8. You (Netflix)

This show is a rollercoaster. Every episode leaves you on the edge of your seat, wanting to watch the next one. It follows college student Beck, and her stalker/lover Joe, who has so many dark secrets.

9. I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman (Hulu)

If you like politics, this one is for you. Sarah Silverman, while being a democrat herself, explores all sides of the political spectrum in this show, traveling around the US to speak to people from all different backgrounds.

10. The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu)

I'll warn you, this one is heavy. It's about a dystopian future where women are pretty much stripped of all rights and forced to have children for infertile couples, and it is hard to watch. The pure hope of these women getting revenge on the patriarchy is what keeps me watching.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
