Top 5 Programs on Netflix to Binge Right Now
Now that we are all locked down on quarantine for who knows how long, we are all bored. If you cannot find anything to do, why not login into Netflix and start watching what you haven’t seen yet. Whether you like documentaries, reality shows, sitcoms, comedy specials, originals, and anything else, there are so many options available.
However, if you want to watch “Friends,” you may be out of luck because Netflix took the series off at the beginning of the year. Not fair, Netflix! Although if you haven’t seen “Friends” by now, have you even lived?
Here are the top 5 programs on Netflix to binge right now.
Miss Americana / reputation Stadium Tour
If you are a Taylor Swift fan, you want to watch these documentaries, although you probably already have. But, if you haven’t, check them out. Even if you aren’t a fan of Swift, you will be and feel for her after watching “Miss Americana.” The documentary chronicles her life and how her option to speak out on politics affected her life and career. If you are desperately missing live shows, check out the “reputation Stadium Tour.” Along with a night of amazing singing and dancing, you will be inspired by her speeches and how she found happiness in one of the darkest times of her life.
If you love creepy, serial killer/ toxic relationships then this series is perfect for you. Honestly, it sounds creepy, but it is strangely addicting. Starring Penn Badgely as Joe. “You” follows Joe trying to find love in this world. However, when he meets a woman, he becomes obsessive and tries to make her life better, but he has a dark side that she doesn’t know about. Season 3 will premiere on Netflix next year so be sure to catch up.
If you love reality shows, get watching! “The Circle” is like if “Big Brother” met “Catfished.” “The Circle” brings the players all moving into the same apartment complex, but never actually meeting face-to-face. They communicate exclusively through a specially designed social media app. That way they get to portray themselves as whoever they want. The players rate one another throughout the competition. The lowest rated players are at risk of leaving the game. In the end, the contestant who survives and wins the game takes home $100,000. Season 2 is coming, so be sure to binge season 1.
