TV Shows to Binge in 2017 (Ramadan Series Aside)

We’ve compiled a list of TV shows you could binge-watch before Ramadan series take your your free time!

1- 13 Reasons Why

13 Reasons Why became the most popular show on social media less than a month after it premiered. Being lauded for its resolute portrayal of what it’s like to be a high schooler in 2017, 13 Reasons Why perfectly illustrates the cruel times that kids go through. The premise of the show is that although these things that high schoolers go through could be minor, they stack up and, like the show, could end up in someone losing their life. So be careful what you say to anyone, because you might think it could go unnoticed, but these words cut deep.

2- Girl Boss

Girl Boss is based on Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling book. The series follows the rise and struggles of Amoruso’s mult-million-dollar online fashion empire, Nasty Gal. Actress Britt Robertson plays the role of Sophia, and is the ultimate definition of a girl boss in the series. She illustrates a rebellious, broke anarchist who decides to stat selling vintage clothing online, and this is how her empire unravels. She starts valuing being the boss of her own life as the show proceeds. Robertson’s humor infused with her attitude is inspirational enough to motivate every girl out there to quit her job and follow her passion!

3- Dear White People

When the show’s trailer hit YouTube last February, it caused anger among white people because of it’s title. After the show was out, white people understood that their perception of the show was wrong. The moving series is about what it’s like being a black student at a predominately white college in 2017. It illustrates issues of race and privileges through a comedic point of view, which makes it even better.

4- Famous in Love

This show is for everyone who is obsessed with celebrities and want a real, raw, inside look of what it’s like to be a glamorous Hollywood star. It’s one of those shows that you keep in the background while eating, studying, or working. It’s funny and doesn’t need a lot of concentration, so it will put you in a good mood.

5- Big Little Lies

Based on the best-seller by Liane Moriarty, the show depicts a dark, comedic story of murder and trouble. Fueled by rumors and a lot of drama, the series exposes fractured relationships between successful husbands, doting moms, children, friends and neighbors. It is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, school scandals, and their dangerous little lies. I feel like this show is a mixture of all the drama series you’ve watched, but with a comedic twist. If you liked the TV show Devious Maids, you’ll love this one!
