Ever cried a little deep down inside when you realize you have already seen every remotely watchable show on Netflix? Well cry no more because these excellent new additions will continue to fuel your passion for binge watching TV. Now just run to the fridge and grab that leftover pint of chocolate Haagen-Dazs, and get yourself in those comfy Scooby-Doo pajamas from fifth grade. This chilly November calls for a lovely date with the bae Netflix.
House (Seasons one through eight)
Upperclassman who are not majoring in pre-med are strongly advised against starting this show, because the brilliant,
sophisticated and sadistic Dr. House will make you reevaluate your life and wonder why you have not aspired to go to med school and be just like him. In a perfectly honest society, I would imagine Dr. Gregory House being mentioned in every medical school essay. House can diagnose his patients’ illnesses based on extremely subtle insights, and is able to effectively treat them. This show is so addicting, you have to see it to believe it. Fun fact: Hugh Laurie (plays House) is actually British and you would never be able to tell from his impeccable American accent.
The Office (Season eight)
Oh heartbreaks! After the departure of Carrel, I promised myself I would stop following the show. However like many things I’ve promised myself (i.e. hitting up the plex & breaking up with carbs), in the end my obsession with The Office conquered all rationales. Not to spoil anything but Andy Bernard might have been promoted to regional manager. If you want to find out how he did it, all you have to do is hit up Netflix!
Lillyhammer (Season three)
Any Godfather series enthusiasts out there? Well although Francis Coppola only made three movies on the legendary New York mobsters, Lillyhammer is three whole seasons of gangster awesomeness. Lillyhammer tells the story of a powerful gangster Tagliano trying to start a new life in Norway after testifying against his ruthless American associates. Fun fact: over one fifth of the Norwegian population viewed the series premiere of Lillyhammer.
22 Jump Street
21 Jump Street’s hilarious sequel. I will leave the introduction at it has the EXACT same plot as its predecessor, but the background simply changed from high school college. However, we’re not watching this movie to judge its level of artistic achievements but just for sh*ts and giggles... And Channing Tatum, am I right ladies?
Retrospective black and white movie nominated for the Oscar. It tells the story of an alcoholic father and his son traveling together to Nebraska from Montana to claim a Sweepstakes prize worth a million dollars. It’s a heartwarming story with a unique sense of humor about a son trying to get to know his drifting father.
