Have a little extra time? Need a Netflix recommendation? This teen had your solution with a curated list of the top 5 shows on Netflix.
Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Four friends run a bizarre bar together as they struggle to find their ways in the world. As problems pile up, the resulting drama leads to hilariously uncomfortable situations.
Narcos: The show follows the surprisingly true story of the rise of one of the world’s greatest drug traffickers: Pablo Escobar. Told through the eyes of both Pablo and the FBI agents tracking him down, and the dramatic action is intermixed with actual documentary footage. Plata o plomo?
Orange is the New Black: When Piper Chapman’s past of helping an international drug smuggler catches up to her nearly a decade later, she’s sentenced to 15 years in prison. Based on a real story, the comedy explores life behind bars, giving way to heartbreak, gritty reality, and moments of laughter. And remember: accent à droit.
Portlandia: The dream of the 90s is alive in Portland, and Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein bring it to life through their zany array of characters. The Pacific-Northwestern city’s eccentric inhabitants come to life through comedic sketches depicting the struggles of living the hipster life.
Parks and Recreation: Treat yo’ self to some of Amy Poehler’s humorous show about a delightfully zealous bureaucrat in the Midwest, portrayed by herself. The residents of Pawnee, Indiana are far from perfect people, but the well-intentioned heroine and her friends bring joy to an otherwise dysfunctional community.
