Netflix Shows You Should Binge Watch

I thought I would share a different post than what I usually do, where I share the shows I have loved on Netflix and would recommend to you! Happy binging!

The OA

This show is thought provoking and chilling. I couldn’t stop watching this series, and became obsessed with the characters and back stories. The story centers around a girl who has been missing for years and has been brought home after years being held captive by a scientist. The main character has visions and hopes to find her fellow captives with the help of some local boys and teacher.

Orange is the New Black

This is an oldie but a goodie on Netflix. The original “original Netflix series” is entering its fifth season in June, so if you haven’t watched this yet, you better get on it! The story follows a woman who is incarcerated and the viewer gets to know her and all the other characters one by one. The end of season four will tear your heart out, but the social and political subjects that are addressed in this show are relevant and important.

Girl Boss

This is the newest Netflix series I just binged. It’s about Sophia, who created Nasty Gal online retail store, and follows her start up on eBay and the trials she faces opening a business in a man’s world with man’s rules. Sophia does things her own way, and at times, I really couldn’t stand her selfishness, but the side characters (hello, RuPaul!) make this show a gem. It’s a quick binge with thirteen episodes at 30 minutes each, that’s just a regular Saturday!

The Crown

While The Crown may not be completely binge-worthy, as it took me a few weeks to finish, it is still a wonderfully acted, scripted, and directed show. The Crown focuses on Queen Elizabeth’s early days as Queen with young children and a husband (who at times, I’m not sure is worth her time…). The politics of the time period come through with Elizabeth’s relationship with Winston Churchill, her sister and her lover, and more. An intimate look into the life of Queen Elizabeth is a must see on Netflix!

Making A Murderer

Now this show had me captivated from the first scene until the last. I believe I stayed up all night finishing it from beginning to end. I would not miss this show if you love murder mysteries, Law and Order, or true crime. Steven Avery has been in jail for a murder he says he didn’t commit. The filmmakers of this documentary followed his story for years, interviewing his family and friends to understand what happened to Teresa Halbach. While there is controversy behind the film and Steven’s story, it continues to be an intriguing case that has infatuated many viewers.

I hope you enjoyed this different kind of post, and if you have (or will) watched these shows, let me know what you thought about them!
