5 best binges of the summer

From new seasons to completely new shows, the summer was packed with every genre of entertainment. Here’s a list of five great binges you might have missed.

“Stranger Things” Season 3

Russians and corrupt government officials? C’mon Netflix. Season 3 of Netflix’s hit show “Stranger Things” introduces wildly charismatic monsters, characters and locations. The many laughs and nostalgic moments you feel soon turn to constant tears as you wonder how you became so invested in a group of kids on bikes. Don’t miss out on this emotional rollercoaster.


HBO may have lost “Game of Thrones” earlier this year, but it has another gem with “Euphoria.” The show focuses on Rue (Zendaya), a teenage drug addict, and a few other kids at her school dealing with substance abuse, anxiety and their own sexuality. The entire cast is incredible, but Zendaya overwhelmingly shines in her role, one vastly different from her time at Disney.

“Jane the Virgin” Season 5

The final season of “Jane the Virgin” is a return to the show’s early glory. The telenovela that teases telenovelas returns with a touching end to Jane’s momentous story. Nearly every episode can make you laugh, cry and say, “Wait, didn’t he die already?”

“The Bachelorette” Season 15

I am by no means a fan of any reality TV show; however, after hearing about this season on “The Bachelorette,” I just had to tune in. If you’re a fan of screaming at your screen as Hannah chooses the wrong men to send home, this season is perfect for you. The intense camera shots mixed with guys like Luke, the worst human being to ever set foot on the show, will have you and your friends laughing for hours.

“Big Little Lies” Season 2

Originally meant to be one season, the show returns, this time with the addition of Meryl Streep in the cast. The show continues to focus on society’s perception of marriage and friendship in comedic and dramatic ways. The show has the best cast of any show I’ve ever seen and it’s a beautiful story of relationships and rumors, so don’t miss out on it.
