Ah, yes it’s summer (as if you already didn’t know). While it may be the perfect time to head to the beach and soak in some Vitamin D, it’s also the time to binge watch as much on Netflix while you can. Squeeze in all you can before the Fall TV series sneak their way back and before school starts again so that way you could be in the loop on all conversations. Whether you’re a first time binge watcher or you’re the type of person glued to Netflix, here’s what you need to see. Time to get cozy! We put an asterisk next to our picks.

Justin Prentice Talks ‘13 Reasons Why’

by

Never judge a book by its cover, or in this case, never judge the personality of an actor by the personalities of their characters. This altered expression goes well with actor Justin Prentice, who currently stars in the Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why as the cruel and unaware high school bro, Bryce.

“Girlboss” Takes Time To Trend

by

Girlboss, the Netflix series loosely based on the Sophia Amoruso autobiographical novel of the same name, starts off slow and irritating but gradually transitions to a decent Netflix binge. The series, directed by Pitch Perfect’s Kay Cannon, centers on Sophia Marlo, a millennial misfit who finds a passion for fashion and starts her own online fashion business known as Nasty Gal. Through this process, she transforms into a businesswoman and her own boss over the two years that we follow her. As she figures out her unstable life as a boss, however, she learns to endure and survive maintaining a business.

‘13 Reasons Why’: The Good and the Bad

by

The newest book-to-TV drama series from Netflix, 13 Reasons Why, is here, and it’s causing quite the stir about a very serious topic. One day, high school teenager named Clay mysteriously finds a box of cassette tapes on his porch that was recorded by Hannah Baker, Clay’s classmate and crush, who tragically committed suicide two weeks before.

Iron Fist Review: Barely Had Any Power in Its Punch

by

This latest Marvel Netflix show before the culmination of these Marvel shows with The Defenders was definitely built on a significant amount of fan hype and justice for the comic book character. Unfortunately, the martial arts superhero show barely had any power in its punch coming off with some decent action sequences and a good supporting character but overall leaving a very lackluster, dull, and structure-less taste.
