Netflix is the procrastinator’s greatest friend, filled with some truly amazing shows to binge watch. However, it is hard to know what is not going to be a waste of time. Here are five shows on Netflix that are definitely worth watching.
- Grey’s Anatomy
The First of Shonda Rhime’s mega successful show dynasty, Grey’s Anatomy will have you hooked from the beginning. The show is an emotional rollercoaster filled with drama, laughs, suspense and many life moments. Grey’s has won many awards, including a SAG award for Sandra Oh in her role as Dr. Cristina Yang and is the first glimpse into how brilliant Shonda Rhimes is at the helm of a show. Just don’t get too attached to any of the characters, this is Shonda, they might not be there for long (I’ll never get over McSteamy).
- Gilmore Girls
The show created a frenzy when it was released on Netflix, which just goes to show how loyal and attached its fan base is. Gilmore Girls will always hold a special place in my heart. Lorelai and Rory, the mother daughter duo the show centers around, are two of the most unique characters ever. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and where they lead you will follow.
- One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill ran for nine seasons and you can watch every minute of drama and fun on Netflix. The show catapulted Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray to stardom. I was unsure at first, but after a few episodes I could not stop watching. It is one of the best shows the CW (formerly WB) has ever put out.
Friends is one of the most popular shows Netflix has ever put up. The show is legendary having started the careers of its six main stars, including Jennifer Anniston. All 10 seasons are on Netflix and even though season one began 1994, the show is timeless for those who grew up with it and you can see the influence it had on many sitcoms we have today. So, whether you are starting it for the first time or you just want to relive the Ross and Rachel saga it is worth logging into Netflix for.
- That ‘70s Show
What better time to watch this show now that two of the main characters are possibly married and have a baby together?! That ‘70s show is packed with laughs from the very first minute. Additionally, it is full of many young hot Ashton Kutcher moments. Not to mention the amazing talents of Mila Kunis, Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Danny Masterson, and Wilmer Valderrama. Despite the show’s setting in the ‘70s it is extremely relatable in any decade.
