(sorry if it's formatted weird. this was my first article. also sorry to all the grammar police officers reading this. I know I write a lot of run-on sentences.)

1. stranger things
Practically everyone knows about this show. I think this is on almost everyone's list of favorite shows. If you haven't already, I highly recommend you watch it! Everyone on the show is insanely talented. Especially the kids! For those who haven't seen it, it's about this group of friends from a small town. As the title suggests, strange things begin happening to these friends and their seemingly quiet town after one of the kids goes missing and a girl appears in his place with psychokinetic powers. The show revolves around the group of kids, their families, and town sheriff trying to figure out what is actually going on as their lives turn upside down.

2. one day at a time
Surprisingly not many people have heard of this one. It's a modernized reboot of the original that ran during the 70s & 80s. Instead of the usual white family, this version focuses on a Cuban-American family and tackles subjects that you usually wouldn't hear about on a regular sitcom such as racism, mental disorders, sexuality, etc. You'll be crying one minute from the many emotional scenes to full on laughing the next as it picks you up with its greatly timed humor. In my opinion, this is definitely one of the best shows on Netflix right now and one of my all-time favorites!

3. unbreakable kimmy schmidt
I only recently started this one but I'm already loving it so much. This is a cute and quirky show about a woman readjusting to life after being kidnapped for 15 years. After seeing New York City in person for the first time, she moves from her small Indiana town to the Big Apple to start anew. It's jampacked with quirky and witty humor and feminist undertones. NBC asked Tina Fey to write it specifically for Ellie Kempler (who plays Kimmy).

4. riverdale
One of my favorite non-Netflix shows. Just like st, this one is also fairly popular right now. It's a modernized show about the material from the Archie comic series. Filled with tons of drama and suspense. (I love Toni's hair! *major heart eyes *)

5. the flash
Another one of my favorite non-Netflix shows. Out of all the shows in the arrowverse, flash is definetly my favorite (I like the other shows as well but to save time) so it'll be the one I write about. It's also another show revolved around comic characters. Specifically about Barry Allen aka The Flash and his team (nicely named Team Flash) composed of supporting characters of Barry/Flash and other heores and villans. They are living and doing their usual jobs during the day and helping to fight crime at night while hiding their normal identities. While the other shows can carry a darker tone, I'm very much attracted to the lighter tone this show has.

6. marvel's runaways
I always love a good comic book show. Especially when it happens to be adapted from one of my all-time favorite comic book series and team ever! I was so disappointed when Marvel announced the cancelation of their series. But I was so ecstatic when they announced they were coming to the small screen! It's just the platform for this team of mighty teens. Like the comics, the show revolves around a group of teens who realize all of their parents are supervillains and make up a group known as the pride. The teens become friends again and the runaways to stop their families evil plan. Not before though learning that they all have unique abilities or inherited weapons.
