TV shows to watch in your freetime
Are you bored with some of the extra free time you have? Are you trying to find a good TV show to watch, but just can’t find the one that you want to put time into? I have the perfect suggestions for you!
These are the shows that almost everybody knows; some love them and others hate them. Regardless, these shows are good to watch because then you can keep up with all of the references your friends are making.
The Office: An adaptation from a British comedy series, this show was on the air from 2005-2013. Starring Steve Carrell as the main character, this show is an inside look at the “average” American office. Witty commentary drives the show’s comedic appeal while a relatively interesting plotline keeps the audience entertained. This show is available to watch on Netflix.
How I Met Your Mother: This show ran for 9 seasons and follows the storyline of the narrator telling his kids how he met their mother (clever, I know). It tells the story of a group of friends as they navigate adult life in Manhattan. This show is great to watch as a long study break because you will probably want to watch more than one episode at a time. You can watch this show on Hulu.
Grey’s Anatomy: This show will make you cry and will make you want to be a doctor. Running for 16 seasons, Grey’s has plot twists and turns that will keep you on edge the whole time. These episodes run for about an hour each but good luck turning it off after just one! This show is also available on Hulu. Warning: not for those who are triggered by blood, gore, or violence.
Supernatural: If you like attractive characters, a thick plotline, demon hunting, and loud cars, then this show is for you. Supernatural is coming to a close with its 15th season premiering on October 8th of this year. Go on hunts with Sam and Dean as they take on angels, demons, God, and everything in between. Available to stream on Netflix.
These shows are ones that you may not have heard of or you saw them on your suggested page.
Cults and Extreme Belief: This show follows what is considered extreme religions/cults and gets the viewer an inside look at what it is like to have been a part of such an organization.
It is fascinating as it dives into religions many have never heard about, such as, NXIVM a cult that gained world-wide infamy when one of its former members came forward about the horrendous things she endured. This show is available to stream on Hulu.
Dead to Me: Just renewed for a third season, this show is one of my all-time favorites. An exciting plotline keeps the viewer on their toes and guessing every second. Follow the story of a widow as she discovers a newly made friend is the one who killed her husband and the drama that follows afterward on Netflix.
Next in Fashion: Hosted by Tan France from Queer Eye, this show takes you into the world of fashion design. Fall in love with the designers and their designs that range from practical to totally outrageous. Available to stream on Netflix.
Glow Up: Follow along as these makeup artists create amazing works of art while competing in Glow Up. This competition shows the incredible skill and talent that goes into makeup artistry, available to stream on Netflix.
Peaky Blinders: Set in 1919 Birmingham, England, the Peaky Blinders are a violent and ruthless gang of brothers and friends. Follow their story through the drama of their lives. Warning: violent, bloody, rape and gore in some episodes. Available to stream on Netflix.
Hopefully, with all of these suggestions, you won’t find yourself staring at your blank TV with nothing to watch!Subscribe to The Daily Cardinal Newsletter
