It’s almost springtime, which means temperatures are rising, the flowers are starting to bloom, and pollen is under attack. Right now, many people who have issues with allergies are currently struggling to get through the day (trust me, I know)! So, if you are like me with allergies then you most likely want to stay in bed most of the day. Also, your spring break is most likely right around the corner as well. Most people may have plans and vacations, but if you’re like me then you’ll most likely be sitting at home while your siblings are still in school and your parents have to go to work. These scenarios tend to bring boredom into the picture as well…
but never fear Netflix is here to save the day!!!
I know what you’re thinking, “Victoria, it takes me way too long to search through all of the movies and shows on Netflix!” Which is why I’m here. I am going to share with you a few shows and movies that I have really enjoyed on Netflix because we have all been through the dilemma of searching for something to watch for hours then eventually just giving up.
1. The Flash and Arrow
These two shows are for the people who love superhero shows! I have fallen completely in love with these two shows and they are binge worthy, for sure!
2. Orange is the New Black
Most of you have probably already watched this one, but I recommend re-watching it before the new season comes out this summer!!
3. 13 Reasons Why
This show has not aired on Netflix quite yet, but it is something to stay on the lookout for! This show is a 13-episode long series about a girl’s suicide. It is based on the novel 13 Reasons Why. I would also suggest that you read the book prior to the release of this series.
4. Finding Dory
Do I even need to explain why you should watch this?
5. The Giver
This is a dystopian style movie, very similar to the Hunger Games and Divergent. Although, I may argue that it is better than those two movies!
For those of you who really enjoy scary movies, this one is for you! This is a scary movie about a girl who is deaf. So, if that doesn’t give you any ideas, just know that there is a lot of eerie silence throughout this film!
7. Audrie and Daisy
This documentary is a detailed story of what a young woman went through after being raped. I really enjoyed everything about this film. It truly portrays what it’s like to be a victim of sexual assault and I recommend it to everyone, one hundred percent!
8. Making a Murderer
After the release of this documentary, I was intrigued to watch it! This film is about a man who is accused of murdering a woman. Throughout the entire film, you will be trying to decide if he is innocent or not. Be careful with this one though, it may sway your faith in our legal system!
9. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About his Father
I won’t lie to you, you WILL need tissues for this one. This whole film is an emotional roller coaster and it makes it even worse that you know it is a documentary of a true story!
10. Annie and Grease
Okay, you can’t forget about these classic musicals!
Hopefully now, you will be busy binge watching Netflix your whole spring break! Good luck to those of you struggling with allergies this time of year, we’re in this together.
Tell us what shows and/or movies you like to binge on Netflix!
