Eat, Sleep, Binge Shows and Repeat


With the holidays coming up students now can sit back and relax, whether that be with friends, families or even ourselves. A great way to do so is to start a new show or rewatch some classics.  Shows have always been a great source of entertainment. They can evoke emotions, transport us to different worlds, and provide people  with a good laugh or a good cry. They can also inspire us students to take action and challenge our perspectives. Therefore we have compiled a list of some the most fan favorite TV shows 

The Summer I Turned Pretty, on Netflix   

Told from teenager Belly’s (Lola Tung) point of view, The Summer I Turned Pretty is initially a teen drama about two families who, over the course of a summer, experience a rollercoaster of drama that often centers on a love triangle at its core. As all good teen shows do, the highs and lows of adolescent firsts are presented in all their glory, as Belly has her first love and heartbreak in one tumultuous season

Wanda Vision, on Disney+

The 2021 show WandaVision marked an exciting television milestone: it was the first-ever TV series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It features beloved Marvel Comic characters Wanda Maximoff and Vision as they lead a quiet life in the suburbs that is quickly permeated by strange outside forces. Not only is WandaVision a fiercely original take on superhero tropes, but it also works as a tender love story and a bingeable drama. Wanda Vision also lit the torch for other great MCU shows, including Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and What If…?

The Office, on Peacock 

It would be illegal to forget the most influential and popular show of all time, The Office. For those  who have somehow made it this far without seeing an episode of the series, The Office is a mockumentary-style look at a Scranton, PA-based paper company called Dunder Mifflin, led by the world’s cringiest boss, Michael Scott (Steve Carell). The show boasts 201 hilarious episodes, with a cast of characters that it’s impossible not to fall in love with. 

Stranger Things, on Netflix

It’s hard to think of a show that has received more hype in the past couple of years than Netflix’s Stranger Things. In fact, its fourth season recently broke Nielsen’s record for the most-viewed show in the period of one week. In the seven days after its release, Season 4 of Stranger Things received a whopping 7.2 billion minutes streamed, and for good reason. It is a creative, adrenaline-pinching ‘80s throwback with easily loveable characters and twists at every turn add a greater synopsis of the show. Go binge all four seasons of the show now, before its fifth and final season hits. 

Only Murders in the Building, on Hulu

Only Murders in the Building, an award-winning series, begins with Steve Martin’s Charles, a has-been actor stuck in his mundane routine whilst living at the famous Arconia. After a murder is suspected within the building, Charles meets two of his neighbors, Oliver (Martin Short) and Mabel (Selena Gomez), and their unlikely bond through a love of true crime podcasts leads them to begin their own about the very murder in their own building. With twists and turns aplenty, the lives of all three are under just as much suspicion as the murder itself.
