5 Shows to Watch During a Study Break

1. The Handmaid's Tale

2. Alias Grace

This is a fictionalized account of the infamous murders of Thomas Kinnear and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery in 1843 by Grace and her accomplice, James McDermott. An enigmatic Grace recounts her life story to a psychologist weaving an intriguing tale that makes it difficult for him to remain impartial. 

3. Big Mouth

Middle schoolers are faced with the challenges that come along with puberty. It can be a bit crude at times, but its comedic approach towards such an stereotypically awkward topic makes it a great choice for a study break!

4. Chewing Gum

This Netflix original follows a 24-year-old virgin, Tracey, who seeks to break away from her mother's religious conservatism and experience the world. Tracey's awkward and relatable humor makes this a great break from studying.
