Spring break season is starting up, and a lot of students are already getting a week off to do whatever it is people do on spring break. I’m not an authority, having spent most of the spring breaks of my youth at home. That was before I was introduced to my significant other Netflix. If I’d had Netflix back then, spring break would translate to “binge watch.” There’s nothing better than marathoning a great TV show, but I’m always hesitant to start anything too long because I’m afraid I won’t have the time to devote to it and it’ll take me months. That’s what vacation is for.
If you’re lucky enough to have both a spring break and Netflix, and you’re not into partying or going to the beach or leaving the house in general, I have a few suggestions for you. These are 12 amazing shows that have five or more seasons available on Netflix streaming that you can catch up on over a week’s vacay. Sure, you might have to pull an all-nighter or two, but won’t it be worth it when you’re all caught up and haven’t seen sunlight for nine days? SPOILER ALERT: It will. These also apply to non-students who are taking time off work or unemployed people or people who go to jobs every day but want to spend every spare minute watching TV. Make sure to stock up on snacks, and godspeed.
