Everyone knows that the perfect time suck is starting a new series on Netflix. Before you know it, you’ve been laying down on your bed for only God knows how long, covered in popcorn crumbs and four seasons deep into a new series.
However, you can’t just pick any new television series all willy-nilly. The shows you choose cannot be shows with three seasons—that simply won’t do. You need a show you can watch over and over again—a show that is endlessly entertaining, lovable characters, and a captivating storyline.
Since you’re procrastinating and are likely avoiding reading your weekly assignments, you probably don’t want to be bothered with television series summaries. You want to turn your brain off (even though it’s barely the beginning of the semester) and pretend that schoolwork is a thing of the past (it’s not).
Thankfully, I’ve handpicked five television series for you to escape from your assignments with. Crack open Netflix in your browser, phone, or tablet and start taking notes, you have some procrastination to do.
Disclaimer: I know these shows are old and have been completed, but isn’t it nice to sleep easy at night knowing that you won’t have to wait months to see what happens to your favorite characters?
