From a variety of action movies to intriguing documentaries, romantic and comedy movies, reality shows and Sesame Street, Netflix has immense diversity in its movie and show genres. Over the years, Netflix has held a special place in my heart. One of my favorite things to do after a long day is to come home, jump on the bed, and catch up on my favorite show. Especially in college, this activity has been a staple when I need a break from writing papers, studying for a test, or doing homework. Lately, I’ve found myself rewatching my favorite shows endlessly. So, I want to give you my two current favorite shows.
Have you ever had a weird emotional attachment to a show? If not, New Girl will be that show for you, just like it is for me. I’ll honestly admit, I wasn’t a fan at first and thought my parents were exaggerating about how good the show was. But, once I started watching the first few episodes on my own, I just couldn’t get enough of it. In the first episode, we meet Jess (the main character) who finds out that her boyfriend was having secret relationships with other women behind her back. When he found out, he realized that he needed a new place to live. Because of this, he contacts three “women” who live together in an apartment to take a tour of his house to see if it would be a good fit. When Jess arrives at the apartment, she is surprised to discover that there are three men and, although she is confused, she continues with the interview and tour. We later find out the names of these three men, Schmidt, Coach and Nick. Later, we meet some other influential characters like Cece and Winston. All the characters have the most amazing and authentic individual personalities. This is what I think makes this show so entertaining. It’s honestly one of my favorite shows, to the point where I’m not even sure how many times I’ve re-watched it. It’s incredibly funny, moving, shocking, and everything you’ve ever hoped for in a show. I highly recommend this show like no other, and I think it’s brilliantly produced.
This is the show I am currently watching and it immediately became one of my favorites. The Blacklist is the story of a woman named Elizabeth Keen, who begins her career as an FBI profiler. As she grew up with a foster father and with no recollection of her blood parents, she realizes that she wants to learn more about her past. Interestingly, on her first day as a profiler, a career criminal named Raymond Reddington arrives in FBI custody and gives specific orders to speak only to Agent Keen. As time goes on, the plot thickens to such an extreme point that you can no longer pause. I love this show because every FBI case is different and unique in its own way. You find out things about Elizabeth and everyone else on the show that make you more and more intrigued and therefore constantly want to see more. I love this TV show. The only drawback is that there are nine seasons and unfortunately I have only been able to watch up to season four. I highly recommend this program as well as it has become more and more one of my favorites.
