Binge-watching shows within a prolonged sitting has become very popular within the community of Netflix viewers. Although Netflix's most popular shows have proven interesting enough to break viewer records, there are many series that have yet to be as popularized.

If you are looking for a show on Netflix that you have not heard of or if you simply want to binge-watch a unique series, consider these shows.

1. 'The OA' (season one)

'The OA' is a show that revolves around the experience of Prairie Johnson, a woman who was held captive and tested on due to her first-hand knowledge concerning life after death. The first season revolves around her memories surrounding her captivity that lasted several years alongside individuals who, like her, could be killed and revived. The show's first season ends on an intellectual cliffhanger in which you can determine yourself what you make of Johnson's experience. If you are looking for a show to finish in one long sitting that will make you contemplate all of the knowledge you just absorbed, then sit back and watch 'The OA.'

2. 'Shameless'

'Shameless' is a series that revolves around a large dysfunctional family, taking place at a South Side neighborhood within Chicago. This show encapsulates the struggle of six siblings, with a drunk of a dad, who fight to stay united while trying to overcome many obstacles and emotions over the course of eight seasons. The dynamic of the show heavily focuses on the Gallagher family and their ever-changing struggles. If you like watching shows that incorporate multiple plots and sentiments, consider watching characters grow up throughout the eight seasons of 'Shameless.'

3. 'Lunatics'

This show is not for the cynical minded due to its comedic mockery of six different characters played by the same actor. Within the ten episodes of the show, each character is expanded upon through skits in which their plot slowly rises to a climax. The show's dynamic builds upon characters who stray from normalities, which leaves the audience more accepting of the "lunatic" side of these characters and ultimately themselves by the end of the tenth and final episode.

4. 'Sense 8'

'Sense 8' follows eight characters that are spread across the globe who have an intense mental and telepathic connection. The show unravels the mystery of their intense relation as they fight together against an organization who wishes to end their kind. This fictional series inspires deep thought through realistic emotion and fight within each of the eight characters. If you enjoy action-packed series that test the bounds of nature and reality, this two-season show will leave your mind blown.

5. 'Queen Of The South'

This series revolves around Teresa Mendoza, who moves to Dallas after her drug-dealing lover gets murdered in Mexico. Mendoza's fight to stay alive and flee from drug lords while creating a powerful drug empire is not only exhilarating but tear-jerking. If you like Narcos or thrilling drug-lord shows, 'Queen Of The South' offers a woman's perspective concerning the struggle and loss within the illegal world of drugs. There are currently three seasons of 'Queen Of The South' on Netflix and viewers can expect a fourth season to premiere very soon.

The dynamic of these five shows set themselves apart from any other series and are worth considering if you are looking to binge watch an unconventional story.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
