I think this post is long overdue, but better late than never! I’ve watched my fair share of TV shows on Netflix and I’ve come up with a list of my Top 10 (even though I still have another 20 on my To-Watch list).
If it weren’t for my friend Autumn, I probably would have never started watching Revenge. But she got me hooked from episode one and the rest is history. Revenge is an ABC drama but the lead character is a kick-ass woman and her “sidekick” is one of my favorite characters of any TV show. The cliffhangers at the end of each episode will be the cause of your binge watching an entire season in one day. You’re welcome.
2. Freaks and Geeks
Unfortunately there’s only 1 season of this show, but it is worth the watch anyways! It’s from 1999 but it is so great. It’s funny and lighthearted and Sam (aka John Francis Daley) is so relatable in this show.
3. Teen Wolf
I KNOW I’M SUCH A DORK FOR THIS. But I think this show is absolute gold. I mean who doesn’t like teen angst and werewolves and Dylan O’Brien?
4. Gossip Girl
If you wanna talk about angst, this is the show for it. I’m pretty sure I watched the entire 6 seasons in the span of a few weeks so it all kind of jumbles together in my brain but I can assure you that it is full of drama and eye rolling moments and millions of reasons to dislike each and every character, but at the end it all comes together. Trust me.
5. New Girl
I’m in love with Zooey Deschanel so it’s not a surprise that this show is so dear to my heart. I have never laughed so hard and so many times during a TV show like I do whenever I watch New Girl. It’s truly one of the most genuinely funny shows out there, in my opinion.
6. Orange is the New Black
Wow, talk about binge watching. This show is so so so amazing. It’s centered around women (in prison) and it’s not too often that you come across a TV show that is all about women. And not just white women but Women of Color and Transwomen as well. Plus it’s hilarious and highly quotable.
If you want to see me cry and question the meaning of life, just put an episode of Skins in front of me. After I finished the series I had to take a few days to pull myself together. Also, it allows me to live vicariously through groups of British teenagers that have a much more…colorful life than I do.
8. The Office
I don’t think there’s even any words that can describe how great of a TV show this is. Honestly, if you haven’t watched it yet, it’s a MUST. It gets progressively funnier with each episode and your life will be forever changed.
9. Gilmore Girls
Since this is the most recent series I watched, it’s very special to me. I love that it centers around a single mom and her daughter and shows the relationship between the two of them and the importance of that relationship. It’s extremely witty and endearing and overall just a really good watch. Also, Paris Geller is my idol.
10. Parks and Recreation
Last but NEVER least, my pal Parks. This show is absolutely hilarious. The first season is a bit tough to get through but I promise you it gets sooooo much better. I’m actually considering re-watching it sometime in the near future!
So there you have it! These are shows that have shaped who I am today (ha ha, I’m not kidding).What are your favorite TV shows on Netflix?
