“Criminal Minds”- “Criminal Minds” is not for the easily distressed. It takes you into the lives of the agents in the Behavioral Analysis Unit or BAU of the FBI. The agents are lovable, relatable characters that keep you on the edge of your seat through all twelve seasons. The BAU investigates the criminals from inside their mind in order to figure out their next move before the criminal makes it. I recommend “Criminal Minds” to anyone who loves a good crime show with a cast of charming agents.

 

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”- While “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is a show for more mature audiences, the humor lightens it up a bit. IASP follows some unintelligent, immoral siblings who own a bar. In one episode, they host a beauty pageant for little girls inside of their bar. They tackle seemingly easy tasks, all while making them ten times harder. Personally, I prefer “The Office” or “Friends” over this, but if you like either of those or a good laugh, make sure to add this one to your list.

 

“White Collar”- “White Collar” follows a convicted criminal who the FBI begins to use for intel against high profile criminals. The criminal is a character you easily feel sympathetic for, which is what makes the show so good. Peter Burke, the FBI agent, and Neil Caffrey, the criminal, partner up and pack six seasons with criminal pursuits. I strongly suggest this show to anyone who enjoys action packed, criminal-based shows.

 

“That ‘70s Show”- “That ‘70s Show,” starring Iowa native Ashton Kutcher, follows five best friends who all pretty much live out of the Formans’ basement. The eight seasons will keep you laughing from start to finish. The teens go through breakups, car conundrums and record stores all through the 200 episodes. I strongly recommend this if you enjoy “Friends,” “Parks and Rec,” or “The Office”.

Yet another comedy, “New Girl” follows Jess Day, a teacher, as she navigates her newly single life. She moves in with three males and the adventures begin from there. ”

“New Girl”- Yet another comedy, “New Girl” follows Jess Day, a teacher, as she navigates her newly single life. She moves in with three males and the adventures begin from there. A school teacher, bartender, womanizer and personal trainer living together is bound to spark some laughs. This is one of the best shows FOX has ever produced, in my opinion.

 

“The 100”- Set in the future, “The 100” follows a group of teenagers who were sent to Earth to see if they could survive the radiation left from the last generation that lived on earth. While back on Earth, they encounter many savage groups that do not appreciate their presence. If you’re looking for a short, action-packed and futuristic show, this would be the series for you.

 

“Atypical”- “Atypical” is not your average Netflix show. Sam is a teenager with autism who is looking to find a girlfriend with the help of his therapist. Sam has a very quirky personality and his humor is the highlight of the show. I recommend this show if you want to become more educated on autism and how it realistically affects teenagers.Everyone should watch this because of the modern day stigmas addressed, as well as the good humor.

 

“Slasher”- While this show is not for the light-stomached, “Slasher” is a Netflix original with two seasons. The show follows camp counselors who revisit an old camp where a murder was committed. The counselors try to cover it up, only to be met with an opposing force devoted to getting revenge.

Based on the reign of King Francis and Queen Mary of Scots, “Reign” takes more of a modern twist on the past events in Europe. ”

“Reign”- Based on the reign of King Francis and Queen Mary of Scots, “Reign” takes more of a modern twist on the past events in Europe. The castle is filled with drama, death, schemes and tragedy. While this is not a historical series by any means, it does educate its viewers on some of the major past events. I would recommend this to anyone who likes an action-filled, medieval show.

 

“Supernatural”- “Supernatural” follows two brothers who were given the duty of defeating monsters. Some of them include the Changelings, Sirens, and multiple possessed clowns. While “Supernatural” is not a new series, the 12 seasons on Netflix are bound to keep you hooked with every episode. Plus, the main characters are from the Midwest,  so don’t get too spooked when you hear about the tales from Iowa. I recommend this if you particularly enjoyed “Stranger Things”.
