Often, the best shows to binge are the ones flying under the radar.

Often times, TV shows don't get enough credit. Low ratings can tank a show in a single season, and leave what had the potential to be incredible be lost to time.

Shows that push the social norm are often overlooked by critics and tv viewers alike, and the shows eventually get lost to the public. However, because of the wonders of the internet, some can be enjoyed even today!

Here are some of the best, underrated TV shows.

1. "Crazy Ex Girlfriend"

This show is everything you'll ever need. Comedy, musical, inspirational, drama, it has it all! I initially refused to watch it because I hated what it stood for-- it seemed misogynistic and tacky. Boy, was I wrong! With about two original songs per episode and a thoughtful plotline about mental illness, it's a show to check out.

2. "The End of the F***ing World"

Yes, there's seriously a show called that. A dark, twisted Netflix show about two teenagers coming to terms with their lives. It's kind of hard to explain. One of them thinks they're a serial killer. Just check it out for yourself.

3. "Galavant"

Yes, I put two musical comedies on here. But you need to check them both out! It's a hilarious and just plain strange telling of fairy tales in the middle ages. It's not afraid to make fun of itself and stretch the limits on comedy.

4. "Arrested Development"

"Arrested Development" premiered in 2003, ended in 2006, and came back to Netflix in 2015 and just had its fifth and presumably final season this year. "Arrested Development" is a comedy made hilarious by the inside jokes, visual cues, and of course, narrator Ron Howard.

If you start in the middle of the show you'll find it boring and probably downright stupid-- why would anyone find cutoff jeans funny, after all? You have to start from the beginning to get the whole effect, but trust me when I say it's worth it.

5. "Brooklyn-99"

The ultimate comeback-kid. After being axed by Fox, NBC picked up this comedy about cops that work in the fictional 99th precinct. It's underrated by a lot of people but seems to be gaining more followers day by day.

6. "Limitless"

Limitless was a show in 2015 that only aired for one season. It's based on the movie with Bradley Cooper, where he takes a drug and becomes smart.

The show sounds like a flop, but it's well executed and can be both hilarious and strangely emotional at times. We follow Brian as he adjusts to the responsibilities of being the smartest man on Earth-- well, only for a few hours that is.

7. "Superstore"

I'm not sure why more people don't watch this show! It's a lot like the Office and Parks and Rec and deals with employees working at a, you guessed it, Superstore. The show doesn't back away from the realness of retail and shows humor in the everyday lives of employees.

8. "Santa Clarita Diet"

This show is just plain weird, and it's great! If you want to see Drew Barrymore as a zombie, well, this show is for you! A dark comedy that's totally binge-worthy, as long as you're not eating when you watch.

9. "Battle Creek"

Okay, I might be a little biased because I'm from Cereal City, but this show was pretty great! It wasn't like our city at all and it only lasted for one season, but still! If you want a show about a dying city in Michigan combined with a cop show, this is perfect for you! You can also see the guy from the Allstate commercials (Mayhem) play a gruff Battle Creek cop.

10. "Mind Hunter"

I had no idea Jonathan Groff was in this before watching it, and it just made it 10x better. You have to be in the right frame of mind to watch this-- unless you have a strong stomach, don't binge it. Watch as the FBI forms a Behavioral Analysis Unit and analyses serial killers in the 70s.

To The Person Feeling Like They're Losing Their Hometown Friends

When you grow up and leave home to go to college or whatever your plans are after high school, you and your hometown best friends promise to make time for each other. You promise to always get together over breaks and to visit each other if you aren't going to the same schools or living in the same town.

But you realize over time that maybe those promises aren't gonna be kept.

Life gets complicated. School starts to become harder and harder, there are extracurriculars and work, and trying to figure out the rest of your lives; things start to get in the way. Visiting starts to happen less and less, getting together over breaks gets more complicated, you try to stay in contact but the hours in the day seem to get shorter and shorter. There are too many things that you have to accomplish in one day that it's difficult to know if you can even get together.

You start to ask yourself "Am I losing my closest friends?"

And the answer to that question is no, your lives are changing and things are starting to become real but they will always be there. Just because you don't talk all the time or you go a few months without seeing each other, they are still your friends. They will always care and always be there. Don't stress about it too much, they are always gonna be there, it's just that your lives are pulling all of you in different directions and it can get hard to keep up with everyone because you are all so busy.

You are growing up but you're not necessarily growing apart!

If they are truly your best friends they will always be there, and you there for them. As time goes on, your lives will continue to change but you are always gonna be friends. Just know that they are there when you need them, and when you do get to see each other, it's like nothing has changed and you pick up right where you left off. Your friendship is important to all of you. Don't let a little bit of silence or a busy life cause problems. You haven't lost them, trust me, you all are just figuring out life. Don't take it personally when you don't talk for a while.

10 Little Acts Of Kindness To Make A Stranger's Day

Let's spread some kindness!

One of my favorite quotes is "It costs $0 to be nice". I love saying that to people who are rude to me (or, at least I say it after they're gone and not to their face). It takes the same amount of effort to be nice to someone than to be mean to someone. Instead of ruining someone's day, what if you made it one to remember for a positive reason?

Here are ten ways that you can improve a stranger's day. Incorporate these into your life to make an impact on the world.

1. Pay for their meal

When I was having a really hard day a few years ago, I decided to swing by McDonald's and pick up an iced coffee. I pulled up to the front window and found that the person in front of me had paid for my meal. Before I could say thank you, he had pulled away never to be seen again. Ever since then I like to pay for the person behind me whenever I can (I'm a broke college student after all). It makes someone feel like someone is out there looking out for them!

2. Compliment them

It's a priority of mine to compliment at least one person a day. If you see a cute purse or see someone rocking a new shirt, let them know you notice!

3. Put change in an expired parking meter

You've been there before: a ticket for only a few minutes over the meter. What if someone had been there to help you out and have your back? What if you were that person?

4. Post-it notes

These are great if you're on a college campus or even if you live in an apartment complex, go to the store, basically do anything outside your home! Positive affirmations left around for a stranger to spot are sure to put a smile on at least someone's face.

5. Hand out flowers

It's impossible to refuse a flower. Well, if they're not allergic.

6. Leave a big tip/kind note

My friends and I did this once at a restaurant-- the woman was overworked, but still managed to be incredibly kind and patient, which is hard to do with a group of teenagers. To thank her we wanted to give her a big tip, but none of us had money on us other than what would cover the bill.

Instead, we gave her whatever cash we had on us, any gift cards and punch cards and a long note on a napkin signed by all of us. I like to think that we made her shift a little more manageable.

7. Be positive

Be positive! If you hear someone complaining tell them the silver lining of the situation! Just don't be preachy.

8. Scrape off snow/ice on someone's car

This can basically work all the time in Michigan since apparently, it's a never-ending winter. Taking the time to help another person out will be greatly appreciated!

9. Help someone who's obviously lost

Have you ever seen someone looking like they're about to have a panic attack and freaking out because they're lost? Why not ask if you can help! Why not recommend the best places around town, too?

10. Smile

Seeing another person smile makes another person feel happier. Spread the joy!
