DECU Recommends: Netflix Binges

Posted September 20th, 2018

Fall is officially here, which means the weather is perfect for snuggling up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and good show to binge. If you’re looking for something new to obsess over, we’ve got you covered! We’ve compiled our favorite Netflix binges. So grab a friend, pop some popcorn, and settle in with a binge-worthy pick!

Grey’s Anatomy

Grey’s never gets old to me. It’s like each time I watch it, I catch new details I did not catch the time before. Sometimes you need a little tug at the heartstrings to make you realize the good in life. This show does just that. – Brooke

Switched at Birth

Switched at Birth is about 2 girls who got switched in the hospital and are reunited later. One of the girls is deaf so I like it because it brings awareness to the deaf community. You might pick up a little sign language, too! – Angel

The Five

Harlan Coben, one of my favorite authors, created The Five, a crime drama available on Netflix. Just like his books, the series is full of twists, turns, and unexpected events. If you like suspense, this is for you! – Kim


Riverdale is one of those shows that keeps you on your toes. It’s one of my favorites and there is a new season coming out soon! – Austin

Luke Cage

Luke Cage is my all-time favorite Nexflix show! I am currently binge watching Season 2. Luke Cage is fine and furious! I am a crazy fan to all things super, great, and wonderful. – Angie


I love Jason Bateman anyway and he doesn’t disappoint as Marty Byrde. It’s like Shameless in that no matter how hard they try to do the right thing there are always more problems brewing in this crime drama. – Karen

Ozark has a great story line and the suspense! – Beth

The Ranch

My husband and I enjoy how funny Sam Elliot is. They may cuss a lot but if you over look that it’s the best comedy I have seen since Friends. – Melissa


I mostly like this one because it’s based in Chicago and I love Chicago. Even though my family isn’t quite this crazy, I can relate to them because of how real they are with each other. We don’t beat around a lot of bushes in my family so it’s refreshing to watch another family who is straight up with one another. – Jes

The Office

The Office is a classic! I can rewatch this show so many times. It’s perfect if you can’t decide on something new to watch or if you’re busy and want something on in the background. The Office crew can always make me laugh! – Melanie

Meet the Fosters

Meet the Fosters is about a family that adopts kids and fosters kids. They have good diversity in the show and it pulls at the heart strings. It’s funny, dramatic and encourages to stand up for what is right. - Angel

Trolls: The Beat Goes On

My kids like it because it’s all their favorite characters from the movie doing seemingly fun stuff. I like it because it’s more educational than other cartoons on Netflix. – Jes

Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is a Netflix classic. - Brooke

The Good Place

The Good Place is such a cute show! It’s light hearted and funny, but it has an interesting plot line and development. The show follows Eleanor, a terrible person who has recently died and gone to ‘the good place’ on accident. She doesn’t want to go to the bad place, so she enlists help from her friends to teach her how to be a good person. Plus, I love Kristen Bell. - Melanie
