Grab your snacks and settle into your couch. It’s time to do nothing but watch Netflix for the next week.

1- Mindhunter (TV-MA)

A screaming murder victim is pictured within the blood on the series cover. Mindhunter has a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is among Netflix most successful series. (Netflix)

Mindhunter is a psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first episode. Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) is an FBI agent who, alongside with his partner, Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), interviews imprisoned serial killers. Holden is independent and insistent as he and Tench dig deeper into the psyches of sociopaths. This show is a must for those who enjoy dark humor and rattling stories. Mindhunter is advised for mature audiences only.

2- Orange is the New Black (TV-MA)

Orange is the New Black is quite the explicit drama, yet it has captured the attention of its millions of viewers. In the series, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is sent to a women’s prison after being caught with a money-filled suitcase belonging to a drug dealer. The show explores the bonds, humor, and terrors of living in such an environment. A serious outcast at first, Piper must learn how to survive in this new environment and attempt to befriend her fellow inmates. The show pays careful attention to how corruption, lack of funding, overcrowding and guard brutality affect the health and wellbeing of the prisoners. All this makes for an addictive, nail-biting series. This show is advised for mature audiences only.

3- Grey’s Anatomy (TV-14)

An outline of the Seattle skyline lies behind the main character, Meredith Grey’s, face in the series cover with the faces of her coworkers pictured alongside her. Grey’s Anatomy has drawn in an audience of nearly 9,000,000 viewers, making it the most watched show on ABC. (ABC)

In this classic hospital drama/romance, the audience is introduced to the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), an aspiring surgeon and daughter of one of the best surgeons, Dr. Ellis Grey, begins her life as a first-year resident (intern), at Seattle Grace Hospital. As the show has recently began its 14th season, it would be smart to begin watching now.

This assortment of series offers enthralling topics and loveable characters that will surely have the audience begging for more.
