As it seems that every other tweet on my Twitter news feed is about Netflix, I thought I would be a help to my fellow peers by creating a “Three Must Watch” (television series edition) list for you. With three sick days and multiple shortened weeks under my belt, I’ve found myself more than caught up with my favorite shows. Warning: there may be spoilers within this article. Here goes:

Shocker, I’ve chosen “The Office”. I’ve already been categorized by “the girl who likes ‘The Office’” by @usd232nice, so it should come to no surprise that I live and breathe “The Office”. Not only have I watched the entirety of the show (192 episodes) all the way through nine times, but I’ve also watched Jim and Pam’s wedding episode about 20 times. For those of you who have never seen it, this show primarily follows Jim (John Krasinski a.k.a total babe) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) who go from office friends to married with two kids. Heart warming. The show doesn’t necessarily focus on those two; there are tons of other small storyline such as Dwight’s (Rainn Wilson) quest to become regional manager. If you enjoy quirky comedy, I highly recommend this series.

A worthy competitor to “The Office” is none other than “Parks and Recreation”. To those of you who follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that my bio reads: “The blonde April Ludgate”. April (Aubrey Plaza a.k.a WCW forever) starts off as a pessimistic intern that eventually makes the transformation to an ambitious department head. The reason I compare myself to her character lies solely in her line “Papyrus? Are you kidding me? There’s no place for that in a professional office setting!” You don’t even need the backstory of this line to understand why she is the best character in the show. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, it stars Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) who is a devoted civil servant for her town of Pawnee, Indiana. Her overwhelming passion often times annoys her Libertarian boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman). Along side her is her best friend Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) who she met at a public forum. She eventually runs for city council and falls in love with her campaign manager Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott). They get married and from there, the show continues into the final season which is airing now (7p.m. on Tuesday nights on NBC for those of you interested).

Coming in at number three, none other than “Friends”. Though it didn’t become available on Netflix until Jan. 1 with 10 seasons (236 episodes) in tow, I embarrassingly managed to begin and complete the series in less than a month, 23 days to be exact. Though this show is nothing like “The Office” or “Parks and Recreations”, I really enjoyed it. It’s a lot more of a drama than I usually prefer. Don’t get me wrong- it’s hilarious. Too much happens over the course of the series for me to try to summarize for you guys. There’s about 10 different wedding proposals and seven babies born from all types of different relationships. Probably the best part of the show, though is the way Chandler (Matthew Perry) looks in season eight. Babe. This show is simply a classic that anyone can connect to, regardless of your favorite type of show. I hope this list of arguably the best television series on Netflix have inspired you to binge watch them all.
