Netflix shows perfect for your weekend binge


New year, new shows. Many noteworthy binge-watching shows that kept us going throughout 2017 include “Riverdale,” “Orange is the New Black” and “Stranger Things.” But you are probably wondering what’s next to watch. Here are some of the top Netflix binges to start your 2018 Netflix list off right. 

“Black Mirror”                                

Taking technology to the dark side with multiple stories and characters in each episode, “Black Mirror” is an interesting mix of drama and crime with chaos in every episode that messes with people’s minds. For those who are just getting into it, the first episode aired in 2011 and is originally a British television series. Some stars featured in the series include Daniel Kaluuya from “Get Out,” Lydia Wilson from “Star Trek: Beyond” and Jon Hamm from the “Mad Men” series. We do not recommend binge-watching this before going to bed since it has an eerie feeling and intense actions in each episode that may have you feeling distraught. However, these are a few of the things that make “Black Mirror” an important binge to add to your 2018 list.

“Criminal Minds”

After dropping a new season in 2017, “Criminal Minds” now has 13 seasons to binge. This is a series that you can binge watch throughout all of 2018. The series initially revolves around a group of FBI profilers that bring together expertise to figure out criminals’ motivations and how to stop them. While the latest season is currently airing on television, you can get an idea of what is bound to happen well ahead of time. The noteworthy cast includes Joe Mantegna, Matthew Gray Gubler and Shemar Moore. The show is emphasized as a drama, thriller and action fiction, which includes a genre for just about everyone. While kids may not understand the mature concepts and suspense put into the storylines, this may be a great show to binge watch with friends or on your own, allowing you to connect with others on different episodes and characters, if others are ahead of you. 

“Fuller House”

Calling all ’80s and ’90s babies, new episodes of the hearty sequel for “Full House” are up. Following the original cast as adults, “Fuller House” is an essential for your 2018 list. Experience the nostalgic feeling of your heart throbbing every time Uncle Jessie pops up on your television screen or laughing at the antics of D.J. and Stephanie going through the chaos of now living together. While “Full House” is not up on Netflix, if you want to get an extra binge in, it may be a good idea to watch episodes on television late at night. Then you can fast forward about 20 years by watching “Fuller House” with the same amazing cast.
