What better way to wind down from the stress of school than with a great TV show? Whether it be spooky, a classic or something out of this world, a good show is perfect for keeping your mind at ease during the quarter.

2. Freaks and Geeks

Ever wonder where Seth Rogen and James Franco got their start? This classic show is sweet, but it’s still full of the comedy genius that is Rogen and his regular co-stars. There was only one season of Freaks and Geeks, so it’s a quick binge, but it’s so worth it!

7. The Resident

A newly released doctor show that everyone needs to watch! The drama of working in a hospital and all that comes with the struggles of going through residency is fresh and intriguing.
