As the summer comes to an end for me, and I head back to work for the new year, I’m taking a moment to reminisce on a few shows that caught my attention all summer! This list is elite [so there’s nothing to debate lol], but check out my shows, add them to your list, and get your life!
Anyone who knows me and follows me on Instagram knows how obsessed I am with Grown-ish! Everything about this show is iconic from the casting [the show stars Yara Shahidi, Chloe and Halle Bailey, and Trevor Jackson], styling to the musical choices to the subject matter. Even more importantly, Luka Sabbat. Lol. You can catch him and everyone else on the show every Wednesday on ABC’s Freeform!
2.) Money Heist [Netflix]
I stumbled across this show thinking it was a documentary on bank robbery’s and fell in love 20 minutes in. The show is set in Columbia and follows a host of bank robbers and their hostages. The show currently has 3 seasons and while each episode is roughly 45 minutes long, it’s totally worth it and full of twists and turns! The character development is A-1as well the character you start off hating will be the one you fall in love with the most! Money Heist is currently streaming on Netflix.
3.) Light as a Feather [Hulu]
Wheww chillay!!! Talk about DRAMA! Honey this show is a good mix of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars! It’s a murder mystery show about a group of friends who befriend the new girl in town. They quickly discover that she isn’t all that she seems when random events start happening to them! They band together to try and take her down! You can catch this show streaming on Hulu!
Shoutout to my girl Shika for putting me on game with this show! Similar to American Horror Story, every season of Slasher has a different “theme,” but the premise is the same. There is a ‘Slasher’ that’s on the loose and everyone is trying to find out who it is before they get killed off. I promise ya’ll this show will have you on edge and every time you think you know who the Slasher is, you’d be surprised! Slasher is currently in its third season on Netflix.
5.) On My Block
Unsurprisingly enough, my students told me about this show claiming it to be a must-watch. After giving it a chance, I easily understood why they felt this way. This is one that Netflix got right. OMB follows a group of childhood friends as they navigate life in the hood. It’s a cultural comedy that focuses on millennial life, love, and friendships! Also, Ruby & Jamal are scene stealers in every season and are a must-watch! On My Block is currently filming season 3, but you can catch seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix now!
