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.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
