'The Society' Is The Next Netflix Original You Must See

Netflix is really doing the most with their newest original shows and movies.

'The Society' Is The Next Netflix Original You Must See

"The Society" focuses on high school students who have to create their own community and survive without the support of their parents who seemingly disappeared.

Right now there has only been one season released, but this show is great for any college student looking for a new show to start binging as summer is approaching. I do want to throw in the disclaimer that it is rated TV-MA because there are quite a few sexual scenes (high school students with empty houses and newfound freedom, what else would you expect)? So if that makes you uncomfortable I probably wouldn't recommend watching it, or I recommend being ready to fast forward as needed.

This show is awesome because it isn't extremely predictable like most shows and movies are lately. There's a mystery that no one can quite solve which is "where are the parents?" And "WTF happened/is happening?" This is the type of show where you think you know exactly what is going on and you think you have it all figured out, and the last three minutes of the season finale just rips that rug right out from under you.

"The Society" gives a really cool perspective on what can happen when you try to leave high-schoolers to their own devices, no service outside of their community so they can only communicate with each other, no social media, no Netflix, or anything of the like. They have to do things they aren't prepared for and they're forced to mature almost instantly. I don't know about you, but I don't like breaking my routine, and something like realizing our parents have disappeared would leave me feeling like I can't function anymore as a human being, mostly for the social support my family gives me.

I will say, however, that the show has a way of making you feel like you're in the show with the characters and are feeling what they are feeling, panic, anxiety, depression, anger, etc. These are all feelings that I usually get when reading a book, but Netflix has done such a great job with this series that they really are telling you a story in a relatable way.

If you haven't binged "The Society" yet, don't put it off any longer, grab a blanket, cuddle up, and binge it!

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
