5 more shows to distract you from homework

Kyle Vanice

Dynasty (Netflix)

This campy drama only has one season available so far, and it is highly addictive. This reboot of a classic ‘80s drama explores the lives of the Carrington’s, a family with a ton of money and extreme drama.

Hart of Dixie (Netflix)

This is a great, lighthearted show that makes perfect background TV. This dramedy follows a young doctor who is forced to shift from working in a New York City hospital to a family practice in small-town Alabama.

The O.C. (Hulu)

This show is like a time capsule for the early 2000s. It’s perfect for anyone feeling nostalgic for that era. The main character, Ryan, is an outsider when he first moves to Newport Beach. He quickly learns that there is a lot to adjust to when you move to one of the richest counties in America.

Better Things (Hulu)

The distinct, low-key atmosphere of this show is what draws you in, but the well-developed characters are what keep you interested. This is a semi-autobiographical show created, written and often directed by Pamela Adlon, a name you may not recognize, but an unbelievable talent.

Game of Thrones (HBO)

Most people that care have probably already seen this one. In case you haven’t, now is a good time to start, because the final season of the epic fantasy premieres on HBO in early 2019. Even if you think dragons and medieval politics aren’t your thing, it’s still worth a shot.
