4 Binge-Worthy Shows on Netflix

By Grace Amato

With the school year starting, everyone needs a good show to binge-watch over the weekend or during free time. Here is a list of some binge-worthy shows that are perfect for starting and stopping, watching all in one go, and even watching while doing homework. 

  1. Lucifer

What happens when the Devil decides to move to Earth with his favorite demon and work as a police officer? This is the basic plot of Lucifer, however, each episode and season has a different focus ranging from love to therapy to police brutality. Everyone enjoys watching an attractive British man perform stunts, sing, and be the broken protagonist until the right woman comes into his life and changes him. 

  1. Squid Game

Be warned, once you start this show you will not want to stop! This show has taken over TikTok, causing tons of people to make dalgona candy which is classic Korean street food. If you want to be on the edge of your seat watching people do challenges to either win roughly 38 million dollars or lose their lives, this is the perfect binge show for you. This show is gruesome so it is not for the faint of heart.

  1. The Circle

If you love reality TV shows like Big Brother or Too Hot to Handle you would love this show. Eight players join the circle and create social media profiles. Their only mode of communication with each other? Posting on the feed and direct messaging. The show explores how social media affects how people react not only to each other but to themselves as well. A profile could be real or it could be a catfish, and at the end of each week, the players are ranked by each other where one is eventually booted.

  1. Sex Education

Want an LBGTQ+ positive show that deals with love, sex, relationships, and sexuality? Sex Education deals with all of these topics and more by focusing on high school students in England. These students, played by people who are actually high school-aged, deal with the same problems every teenager faces. Rather than romanticizing issues, the show breaks them down and expresses different ways to deal with said issues, including how other people could or should react.

I am a senior at RWU studying Criminal Justice with a double minor in Psychology and Public and Professional Writing. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I hope to utilize it to make a positive difference in the Criminal Justice world.
