If you have seen any of these people above plastered all over social media lately, it is because “Shameless” is one of the most popular shows on Netflix at the moment. The series follows the hectic life of a poor family living in the slums of Chicago. Six children are left to fend for themselves, after their mother walked out on them, but they still have to deal with their crazy alcoholic father walking in and out of their lives. The show perfectly combines humor with drama, and once you start watching, it is pretty hard to stop.
“Friday Night Lights”
This is one of those series that never gets old no matter how many times you watch it. Growing up in Illinois or Missouri, it is likely you came from a small town. This show takes you back into the drama of high school and the one thing small towns can’t get enough of — football. At some point or another, you will be able to relate to the charters and the problems they face throughout the show. “Friday Night Lights” is not just a series about football, but rather it is about growing up and figuring out who you want to be. Plus, Tammy and Eric Taylor are seriously relationship goals.
“Who took Johnny”
Even if you aren’t a fan of documentaries, this is a must see. The story follows one of the first major kidnapping cases America has ever seen. This was during a time when it was OK to let your kids wander off for hours on end and to leave your doors unlocked at night. This case changed the way law enforcement deals with missing children today. “Who Took Johnny” is a compelling story, and this documentary reveals frightening details about Johnny’s kidnapping and where he might be today.
If you haven’t seen this show, are you even American? I am hoping you can just skip over this one because you have already re-watched it a million times but if not, here is a brief summary. This show follows the lives of people who work at a “boring” paper company, however, the audience soon finds out it is anything but. Michael Scott leaves us all wondering why we are not fortunate enough to have a crazy cool boss like him, Dwight supplies the show with non-stop humor and as for Jim and Pam, they are everything you could ever hope for in a relationship. If you have not seen this show, stop what you are doing and go start it right now.
“One Tree Hill”
No words could ever do this show justice. “One Tree Hill” follows a group of teenagers who are trying to find out what they want out of life, but it doesn’t stop there. The shows continue to follow the bunch after they graduate and head out into the real world on their own. They think they find everything they are looking for, only to realize what they really wanted was right in front of them all along. Although some crazy things happen on this show, it is very relatable when it comes to life and love. This show will get you in the feels and teach you some lessons about yourself. This is absolutely one of the greatest shows of all time.
