For most students, the fall semester has been pretty busy. Whether it is school, work or spending time with friends there is not always time for TV. And there is especially limited time to binge watch any shows.

As for others, we have been slowly getting over the grind and not sure what to do in the evenings during COVID-19.

Well never fear, because Netflix is always here.

The great thing about Netflix is that you can find a great show to watch yourself, the perfect thing to throw on with your friends and a fun movie to watch with the family. So here are some recommendations of shows and movies that are currently on Netflix for people to watch over break if they haven’t already.

Family friendly evenings may involve: “Selling Sunset”, “The Lorax”, “The Grinch”, “Last Kids on Earth”, “Schitts Creek”, “New Girl”, “Episodes”, “My Next Guest with David Letterman”, “Unsolved Mysteries”, “The Unicorn”, “Feel The Beat”, “Kangaroo Jack”, “The Greatest British Baking Show”, “Paul Blart Mall Cop” and “ZooKeeper”.
