As the weather gets colder, Binghamton students scramble to find good shows to watch. Like any great Bearcat, we scurry to our dorms, ask our friends what to watch and accept the comfort that Netflix provides.
“Ozark is Netflix’s watered-down version of Breaking Bad, and I’m probably going through withdrawals of finishing that show. But Jason Bateman’s conflict between money laundering and drug cartels is enough to keep me entertained. It was nice change to see him in a role that offers a wider breadth of his acting skills, as opposed to his rom-com movies.”
Shows: Big Little Lies and The Night Of
Platform: HBO Go
“The Night Of is amazing. It’s a murder mystery that slowly reveals more as the show continues. The cast is amazing, the supporting storylines keep things interesting and the ending has an insane plot twist!”
Show: True Blood
“I’m a few years late, but I like it because it’s one of those shows that you can put on as background noise or get really into it. Either way, it’s amazing. It yields a lot of different emotions because it’s romantic, but also so gory. Plus, there are no commercials!”
What are you watching: This Is Us, The Flash
Platform: Hulu, Netflix
“This Is Us depicts a group of adults who run through a bunch of events and hardships. I like the storyline and how it bounces back from the past when the characters’ father was alive.”
“I like The Flash because I’ve always been interested in comic book,s and seeing it happen in live action is really cool.”
Shows: Entourage and The Office
Platform: HBO Go and Netflix
“I like Entourage because it gives an insight into the stereotypical Hollywood life that we all wonder about when we watch certain actors perform in movies. The Office is just incredible because Dwight Schrute and Kevin Malone might be the funniest characters across all television shows.”
Shows: Ray Donovan
Platform: Showtime Anytime
“I enjoy Ray Donovan because i get to see how a man can have such a vulgar job, but still go home to a nice family. The dynamic reminds me of The Sopranos, since both merge work and family life.”
Shows: Smallville and Veep
Platforms: Hulu and HBOgo
“I like that Smallville teaches you to see the best in people. I also watch Veep because I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus and politics.”
