1 “Grey’s Anatomy” Will Give You ALL the Feels
I have to confess. This’s my current guilty pleasure on Netflix! I can’t wait until my day is done so I can sneak in an episode or two. It starts out as a story about a close group of friends who’re interns at a hospital and all the adventures they have in life, love and medicine. One thing’s for sure, it’s never boring!
2 Throwback by Watching “Bill Nye Saves the WoRld”
So it may not be the original Bill Nye science show we all grew up with and loved, but seriously, Bill Nye's new show has just as much fun as the old one. Looking at things from a scientific standpoint, he digs in deep and searches for the ultimate truth.
3 Have Some Lighthearted Fun with “New Girl”
Have you caught any of “New Girl” yet? If not, you’re missing out! It’s a show about a girl who moves in with some single men because she needs a place to stay. It’s full of funny moments as they each learn things about the opposite sex and experience the awkwardness of living together. And the character of Jess, the new girl, is played by Zooey Deschanel who’s altogether lovely to watch. I love tuning in just to see her fashion, hair and makeup.
4 Excuse Me While I Get Lost in the 90s with SomE "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
With all these shows like Fuller House and That's so Raven getting reboots, it's no wonder Netflix would throw this on there. A reunion is just what the vampires need right!? Buffy is a teenage girl specifically chosen on a mission to destroy vampires, demons, and other evil. With her friends by her side, she battles darkness and saves the world-multiple times.
5 “Breaking Bad” is Dark but Addictive Entertainment
I have to admit that this isn’t my favorite show on this list. However, it does have an addictive element to it. If you like your entertainment a little dark then this one’s for you. It’s about a high school chemistry teacher who’s received a dim prognosis of lung cancer. In order to provide for his family financially after he’s gone, he begins to make crystal meth. As you can imagine, the story easily escalates from there.
6 “Longmire” is an Action/Drama You and Your Boyfriend Can Enjoy Together
I’ve watched a lot of “Longmire,” mainly because my husband is a huge fan. While I don’t love it as passionately as he does, I’ll say that it’s a good show. It draws you in. It’s an action packed crime drama but it also has moments that tug on your heartstrings. It’s a show you can easily enjoy as a couple.
7 “Friends” is a Classic You Can Never Go Wrong with
Goodness, I can’t leave out “Friends.” Whether you’ve seen a million times or you’re new to the show, it has to go on your list of shows to bingewatch on Netflix. You just can’t get tired of this show! It’s light hearted comedy you can enjoy anytime, no matter what your day’s been like. Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe will soon feel like they’re your close friends of yours, too!
8 "House" is Full of the Best Medicine-Humor
House seasons 1-8 are all streaming so if you need me, look on the couch. A sarcastic doctor with the detective skills of Sherlock Holmes, solves medical dramas with wit. Full of mind games with his colleagues, he drags a team of young doctors with him to solve the cases of some pretty funky infectious diseases and myster illnesses.
9 "13 Reasons Why" is the Right Amount of Dark and Twisted
If you haven't already, this is a show everyone is raving about right now. There's only one season so far but it's definitely one you need to see. Teenager Clay goes on a quest to find out why his crush and fellow classmate has boldly decided to end her life.
10 Meet a New Kind of IntereSting in "the Handmaid's Tale"
This show literally just came out so I have yet to see it, but reviews say it's supposed to be quite intriguing. Set in a dystopian future, a woman is forced to live in a concubine under a fundamentalist dictatorship. It has Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore) and Samira Wiley (Poussey from OINTB) so it can't be too terrible, right?
These'er some ideas of shows to bingewatch on Netflix this summer. Now it’s your turn. What shows do you recommend?
