Your “I Don’t Know What To Watch Next” TV Show Guide

Binge-watching TV shows has never been a really big thing for me, mostly because not too many have that binge quality to them. I’ve always been more into movies, but when I get into a good TV show, there is no going back. The best ones are the shows that make it impossible not to keep moving further and further into the season until you don’t know where the time is gone and you are already 22 episodes deep, ready for the season finale. As a result, these are four TV shows that will keep you going until the very end.


If "24" isn’t a binge worth show, I don’t know what is. For those who aren’t familiar with it, it follows CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit), a government agency who, as you may have guessed, investigates terrorist threats, prevent terrorist attacks and combats terrorism. What is extremely cool about it is there are 24 episodes in every season, each episode designated to a specific hour of the day to make up a 24-hour time period where CTU deals with a different terrorist attack every season. Cool, right? That concept pretty much screams binge-watch, because it's just nonstop action that features one of the best TV characters in history, Jack Bauer. I’m on season five right now and I can’t get enough of this show. With conspiracies, action, drama, politics and insane heart-stopping moments, do yourself a favor and just start the show right now.

"Mr. Robot"

Now this is a super easy one to get into, because there has only been one season so far, so you aren’t too far behind! "Mr. Robot" I feel is one of the most underrated shows that not enough people are talking about. I couldn’t find a better way to explain it then how Wikipedia did, so this is their description: the show “stars Rami Malek as Elliot Alderson, a cybersecurity engineer and hacker who suffers from social anxiety disorder and clinical depression. Alderson is recruited by an insurrectionary anarchist known as "Mr. Robot," played by Christian Slater, to join a group of hacktivists. The group aims to cancel all debts by attacking the large corporation E Corp.” The great thing about this show is it’s dark, engaging and doesn’t dumb anything down for the audience. As a result, it will make you research and look further into the plot point and terms being used until you actually as a viewer become part of the world. Any show that makes me want to look deeper outside of the show has my vote as one of the best out there right now.

"Prison Break"

"Prison Break" is probably my favorite show next to "24," and the reboot is making me WAY too excited. The title of the show is pretty self-explanatory but you have to watch it to realize that prison is only a fraction of what this show really consists of. It follows Michael Scofield as he tries to break his brother out of prison for a crime he didn't commit by putting himself in prison as well. However, he discovers there was so much more planning that went into the framing of his brother that he ever imagined. One thing this show does that I have almost never seen is the amount of depth and effort the writers put into every character. They are so incredibly complex and you can go from hating a character one episode to loving them the next. They show every side imaginable for each and every character, which makes for a hell of a show! Before the reboot starts make sure you binge watch Prison Break as soon as you can - you won’t regret it!

"Game of Thrones"

Okay, okay. I know you have been told by the entire world to start watching "Game of Thrones" and you said to yourself, “I’m just not interested in that kind of stuff.” But if you really think about it, if this show wasn’t absolutely amazing, literally everyone wouldn’t be telling you to see it, and since they are maybe it is time to finally start. Once you involve yourself in the world of Westeros and Essos, you’re stuck there. With so many plotlines, characters, dilemmas, fights and gasp-worthy moments, just give in already. It’s time…

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
