Hello to all my Netflix binge watchers out there! You know who you are, and today I am here to help you feed your addiction of binge watching. There are so many amazing shows on Netflix these days ,but if I had to give you my top four, here's what they would be:
First off, we have the new show "Thirteen Reasons Why" which is based off the novel by Jay Asher. It depicts the story of a young girl named Hannah Baker who has committed suicide. Even after death she makes an impact on her high school classmates by leaving a series of tapes that describe the 13 reasons that lead to her death. It is a thought provoking story that really makes you think about the little things in life.

Next we have the bitingly funny miniseries "Big Little Lies". Again this series was based of a novel by Liane Moriarty. It is focused on three mothers in the beach town of Monterey, California. As you delve deeper into the lives of each woman you will notice there issues beneath the fabulous homes, attractive children, and successful husbands. And it is only a matter of time before these matters are brought to the surface of this tranquil town.
You will def be so hooked you will need a slouchy sweater to watch all 7 of these episodes:
Moving on, we have the diamond in the rough series known as Black Mirror. It was picked up by Netflix in 2015 for its third season, but originally aired in 2011 on the British Channel 4. The unique factor that makes this show interesting is that each episode is a standalone work and does not connect with the past or future episode. They are usually set in the alternative present or the near future and discuss the unanticipated consequences of new technologies on society. Definitely one worth checking out.
Lastly, we have the "The Series of Unfortunate Events" which is based on the series of novels by Lemony Snicket. It tells the tales of the three Baudelaire children who have recently lost their parents to a house fire. They must find a guardian to take care of them, but end up in the care of a murderous relative Count Olaf who clearly only wants their inheritance. The plot progress with the children attempting to escape from his clutches while gradually finding out the mystery of their family. And as is said in the title, the Baudelaire's experience various unfortunate events throughout.
