Netflix is basically MY LIFE. Who needs
a social life friends when you’ve got Netflix?
Instead of going out to clubs on the weekends or spending money elsewhere, for a mere $12 a month, I have guaranteed entertainment at the tip of my fingers. Okay, I admit: I’m an avid Netlfix-binger (Breaking Bad is my fave). I shamelessly deny weekend excursions to catch up on my favorite shows. Come on, we all do it! Right?
When I’m not watching House of Cards, The Walking Dead, or Mad Men, I like to clear my mind with fun, lighthearted shows. Netflixing (I’m unsure if this is even a word, but hey, it gets the point across) is more tiresome than you think!
Need a mental break? Here are 5 feel good shows to watch on Netflix!
1. Malcolm in the Middle
Oh Dewey, you always find a way to warm my heart. Even though I’ve never pounced on my siblings before, I can appreciate Dewey’s ingenuity—Malcolm in the Middle is an instant classic!
2. Bob’s Burgers
Admittedly, I was reluctant to watch Bob’s Burgers. All of my assumptions disappeared after a few episodes. Bob’s Burgers is engrossing and effortlessly hilarious. Be prepared to laugh!
3. The Office
The Office gets everything right about office culture: from meetings to cubicle parties, you’re guaranteed fits of laughter in every episode.
4. Parks & Recreation
Ya’ll, I’m a little behind the Parks & Recreation bandwagon, but I’m sure glad I joined! Amy Poehler never disappoints, did I mention Aziz Ansari is also a cast member? ‘Nuff said.
5. That 70’s Show
One word: Ashton Kutcher. Need I say more?
