Pinterest Interest | Binge-Worthy Netflix Series

The sun is shining; the snow is melting and once again the guy who rides that 6-foot-tall unicycle can be seen pedaling around campus.

All of this can only mean one thing: spring is here, hopefully. At last, it’s time to put away the hats and mittens and instead break out the bro tanks and shorts to expose our skin to some actual sunlight.

By this time next week, our Instagram feeds with be plastered with pictures from spring break of all our friends sitting by the ocean, working on their tan lines.

Well, if you’re like me and will be lounging in your hometown for a week, you might be wondering how you’re going to pass the time. That’s why I did some searching on Netflix to find a few series that are perfect for binge-watching the entire week of spring break. Here are a few relatively new Netflix series to check out:

‘Fuller House’ (One season, five stars)

How fitting to be back on your parent’s couch watching your favorite TV characters from when you were young. A continuation of “Full House,” “Fuller House” follows the widowed DJ Tanner-Fuller as she navigates parenthood as a single mother.

To help raise her three boys, DJ’s sister Stephanie and long-time best friend Kimmy Gibbler and her daughter move into the Tanner house to help out. If you’re thinking you’re too old to watch the show, think again — the episodes have the perfect splash of mild adult humor to cater to audiences young and old alike.

‘Better Call Saul’ (One season, five stars)

Like “Fuller House,” this show is a spin-off of a well-loved TV series. “Better Call Saul” serves as a prequel to the award-winning series “Breaking Bad.” The series is about a lawyer named Jimmy McGill, later called Saul Goodman, who is hustling his way to his own destiny. If you like “Breaking Bad,” be sure to check out “Better Call Saul.”

‘Love’ (One season, four and a half stars)

The series “Love” is a semi-romantic comedy centered on the relationship of characters Mickey and Gus. “Love” follows the two as they dive into the world of dating and deal with the inevitability of things like commitment and intimacy.

‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ (One season, five stars)

Anytime Tina Fey writes something, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be hilarious. From the sound of it, the series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is no exception. Starring the funny and loveable Ellie Kemper, the show follows the journey of Kimmy Schmidt. After being rescued from a cult, she moves to New York and, with her new friend Titus, discovers the wonders she has been missing out on for the past 15 years.
