My Go-To Shows On Hulu & Netflix 

These last couple weeks I’ve definitely had more than a few chill days and the gloomy weather Illinois has been having isn’t helping. Fortunately, I’m not complaining because I’ve been able to catch up on all my favorite shows. Listed below are a few of the best (in my opinion) shows to binge watch on Netflix & Hulu. 

Shameless

This is a recent pick of mine. After hearing so much hype about this show, I finally decided to tune in. 

The episodes highlight the tribulations and hardships of a family full of kids placed in the city of Chicago. This bunch is anything but normal. The ring leader and eldest sister Fiona, tries her best to keep things under control within her family’s hectic lifestyle. Despite the siblings unfortunate living circumstances and a drunk as a father, they always find a way to stick together. 

There’s quite a few seasons available to watch making it the perfect show for a cozy Sunday indoors. 

Law & Order: SVU 

One of my absolute favorites. I am so invested in this show all of you have no idea..

If you didn’t already know, the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit works to solve crimes involving sexual assault, children, the elderly, and more in some cases. The television drama depicts a particular area of the police department most don’t see. Although the stories are stated to be NOT relevant to factual events, the cases presented often carry similarities to real life investigations detectives would solve. 

Everything about this show is eary, interesting, and surprising ideal for any super sleuth. 

11-21-63 

Have you ever wondered what the world might have been like if someone you admired never passed away? How about a president of the United States? 

Join James Franco in an urgent race to the past to determine the fate of the future. Following the assasination of late president John F. Kennedy, this show will leave you on the edge of your seat. 

FYI this series is based on the bestselling book written by Stephen King. So, it has to be good right? 

The OA

If you’re a fan of sci-fi and the undiscovered then you’ll love, love, love The OA. Without getting into too much detail, the episodes unravel a woman’s story stemming from her near death experience as a child. It’s captivating, heart breaking, and unusual-most importantly it’s fresh and a storyline other shows haven’t exactly explored. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen, the plot takes a turn. 

Bates Motel

This one of a kind masterpiece is unfortunately coming to an end. The final installment premiered on A&E a few months back but luckily all seasons will resurrect on Netflix mid January for your enjoyment. 

A mother and son duo who sadly have more bad days than good ones, try to juggle their perculiar lifestyles amidst running a motel. Follow the team, friends and foes throughout the episodes while they attempt to uncover secrets, lies, and betrayal.
