It’s a Friday night, you’re sick of school, and you just want to escape from your social obligations and all the stress that comes with being a teenager. So, you run up to your room, shut the door and turn on the one thing that can alleviate all of your problems: Netflix.

If you’re a total Netflix junkie, you must have seen all the classics, and by now you’re re-watching shows or trying to decide what to watch next.

With a wide range of genres, lengths and plots, there’s a show for everyone. So, scroll through the list, read what students have to say about their personal favorite and hopefully find a refreshing new show to obsess over.


One Tree Hill

This was one of the shows that multiple people said was their favorite. The story revolves around two half-brothers who live in Tree Hill, NC and the drama that ensues from their romantic interests and competition on the basketball team.

“I like One Tree Hill because Nathan Scott is really attractive,” sophomore Hailee Nelson said.


The Walking Dead

The horror series is set in post-apocalyptic America, filled with zombies whom the characters are constantly trying to escape from.

“It would be pretty cool if an apocalypse happened because I think I would be prepared if there ever was one after watching this show,” sophomore Chris Quirion said.


My Little Pony

An animated fantasy-comedy show that includes mystical ponies on a mystical land.

“It makes me feel happy and secure, and it brings out my feminine side,” senior Josh Fuchs said.


Big Bang Theory

A sitcom about four young scientists whose lives change when an attractive waitress moves into the apartment across from them. Her common sense and social skills expand the geeky guys’ world, and vice-versa.

“Big Bang Theory passes time for me, and it’s really funny,” junior Noah Zawadzki said.


Cake Boss

A show about baking intricate cakes that focuses on the entire process, from the planning to actually delivering the cakes to the venue–and all the stress in between.

“I like baking and watching them make different cakes is really entertaining,” freshman Hope Freshwater said.


Once Upon a Time

Set in a fictional land named Storybrooke, the citizens consist of different magical creatures and characters from fairytales who are transported to the “real world” town and robbed of all of their memories by a powerful curse.

“This show is relatable because of the characters and what they go through,” sophomore Kendra Galloway said. “Regina, The Evil Queen, is one character who’s trying to be a better person, which is something I can relate with.”


The Flash

This one was another show that many people chose as their favorite. It revolves around a forensic scientist who was struck by lightning in a lab accident, just to wake up and discover that he has super-speed. He uses his powers to fight crime.

“I’ve always wanted my superpower to be able to go really fast,” sophomore Henry Godino said. “Plus, it reminds me a little bit of Lilo & Stitch.”




As someone who has watched a lot of Netflix, some personal favorites that were not mentioned above include That 70s Show, The Office, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Jane the Virgin, Gossip Girl, Orange is the New Black, Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, 90210 and The Carrie Diaries.
