Top 5 Shows Taking Over My Life

I'm the worst at keeping up with series, I'm not going to lie. I feel like my perseverance has been invested into reading so much that watching shows take the back seat. However, now that Netflix is at the tip of my fingers I've managed to fall back into binge watching TV Shows.

Currently Watching

I am amazed at how invested I became as soon as I started this series. I kept hearing how great it is, and was super excited to see that it was available on Netflix so I gave it a shot. I love the suspense, controversy and scandalous aspects of politics portrayed in House of Cards. The power struggle is so intense and engaging, and it surprises how much I support Frank, the anti-hero. My favourite part is how unique the storyline is told, with Frank talking directly to the audience as a method of inner dialogue.

2. The 100
The 100 is based on a book series and the amount of people who have told me the series is way better than the actual books is surprising. I love how dark and gritty this is. It doesn't spare on the gruesome and creepiness. One hundred teens being sent to a post-apocalyptic Earth to test its survival can and does get out of hand. I'm not up to date just yet, but it is very addictive so I'll get there.

3. Oz

If you haven't heard of this don't worry, it's actually a 90s show. Oz is set in a male prison focused on trying to rehabilitate the prisoners but with such a diverse range of characters things don't always go as planned. I'm watching this because of my recent interest in crime and policing etc., (hence my major I guess). It's definitely aimed at a more mature audience and I'm taking my time with this series because it's not something I can really binge watch what with the content.

4. Daria 

Daria was a childhood series that is full of satire and sarcasm, which funnily enough I appreciate more now than I did back when I was 7 or 8. The main character Daria embodies the most realistic teenager and addresses all these issues you get whilst going through High School - even if it is a little exaggerated. No seriously. Just watch it.

5. Suits

Season 6 has just started and I feel like everyone is hooked on this series. I'm at the end of season 5, so I'm super excited to be up to date.
