10 Underrated TV Shows That Are Totally Binge Worthy

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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7573

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
