The more we’re going into fall, the more Netflix weekends spent in bed sound appealing. I must say, I would gladly spend my every Saturday night like that, with a bottle of wine, some take out from my favorite Chinese place and in cozy, flannel PJ’s. Sounds great, right?
The thing you’ll need for a weekend like that to be amazing is an even better show that you can binge watch. In the sea of new and old ones (I swear, there’s a new show every month), it gets hard to choose the one that deserves your full attention and time. So here’s my list that might help you pick the right one!
Sons Of Anarchy
Sons of Anarchy is an American crime drama television series created by Kurt Sutter, about the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in California‘s Central Valley. The show centers on protagonist Jackson “Jax” Teller (Charlie Hunnam), initially the vice president of the club, who begins questioning the club and himself.
Best part: Charlie Hunnam and his rough greatness
How To Get Away With Murder
Annalise Keating is a prominent criminal defense attorney and a law professor at Middleton University. She selects five students to intern at her firm: Wes Gibbins, Connor Walsh, Michaela Pratt, Asher Millstone, and Laurel Castillo. They work with Annalise’s employees, Frank Delfino and Bonnie Winterbottom, an associate lawyer. As Season 1 introduces occasional clients for Keating, it explores two related murders through flashbacks: Lila Stangard, mistress of Annalise’s husband Sam Keating and a student at Middleton; and then Sam Keating at the hands of Annalise’s interns.
Best Part: Outstanding performance by Viola Davis (just won an Emmy) who will keep you on your toes with every single episode
+ you get to learn a lot about the law system (never a bad thing to know)!
The series follows Elliot Alderson, a young man living in New York City, who works at the cybersecurity company Allsafe as a security engineer. Constantly struggling with social anxiety disorder and clinical depression, Elliot’s thought process seems heavily influenced by paranoia and delusion. He connects to people by hacking them, which often leads him to act as a cyber-vigilante. He is recruited by a mysterious insurrectionary anarchist known as “Mr. Robot”, and joins his team of hacktivists known as “fsociety”. One of their missions is to cancel all debts by taking down one of the largest corporations in the world, E Corp (known as “Evil Corp” by Elliot), which also happens to be Allsafe’s biggest client.
Best part: Super intriguing and interesting show, brings the hacker culture closer to us
