Given the numerous home shows available when you have a real television, you might wonder why you should watch another one on your laptop. The first two reasons should be obvious: it’s on Netflix and produced by the BBC. The even better reason is that it is nothing like any homes show you’ve seen before.
In “Sex Education”’s mere eight episodes it is able to tell a story that, although its particulars may vary from many people’s high school experiences; its overall message speaks towards the awkward universality of that time in people’s lives. There are a lot of moving components in this show, and they all add up to one pleasant viewing experience.
Are you a fan of Gossip Girl? Did you ever ask yourself what would it be like if we knew who Dan was as a person and also what if he killed people? If any of these questions have ever come across your mind then You is the show for you!
In an age where Netflix allows us to take on binge-watching as a part-time job, it can be easy to get caught up in shows that, quite frankly, are not worth the life-consuming amount of time they require. We’ve all been there: two seasons and about 20 hours into a new show you’ve been binge-watching, you’re suddenly hit with the realization that it isn’t so great after all, and between the gaping plot holes or ridiculous character changes (2015 telenovela Celia, I’m looking at you), you’re so disgusted that you physically cannot watch another episode. It’s perhaps the greatest let-down of the modern day, to discover that you’ve devoted so much time and emotional investment into a show that you ultimately found to be disappointing. I’m here to offer solace on the issue. If you need a safe bet for a show on Netflix that will do anything but disappoint, your next watch (or perhaps re-watch) should be the 1994 sitcom, Friends.
As someone who wanted to start their summer off productively, I decided to binge-watch all nine seasons of The Office (slightly less if you consider the fact that seasons 1 and 4 were less than 20 episodes long). For those of you somehow not familiar with the show (in which case, stop reading and start watching),was a show on NBC that aired from 2005 to 2013, spanning 201 episodes in all. It stars such comedians as Steve Carrell, Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson, and Jenna Fischer and takes on the gutsy task of creating comedy out of the mundane and soulless office environment that most middle-class Americans are familiar with.
