Binge Worthy Movies and Shows! 

With the semester coming to an end you guys are probably finding yourself having some down time before all the exams, final projects, and presentations are due. Although this time should be spent studying and planning, there is always time for self-care! I recommend that if you have a little break in between studying and working that you watch a show or movie! Today I’m going to share a movie and two shows on Netflix and Hulu that I have been loving and highly recommend you guys to binge!

Murder Mystery 2 (47% on Rotten Tomatoes)

Although this is the sequel to “Murder Mystery,” I highly recommend this one, because I actually liked it better than the first! This is a movie starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. It’s a comedy and mystery about a couple launching their new private investigator agency, but find themselves landed in an international murder mystery when a friend gets abducted. This movie was a light watch that contained comedy and action. I also wanted to point out that this sequel had a lot of Indian and European culture in it, so it was really pretty to watch!

Emily in Paris (47% on Rotten Tomatoes)

Although Emily in Paris now has three seasons, I highly recommend watching it, because the episodes are not that long, and are light and fun to watch! This is one of those shows that you can put on when you’re doing chores! Similar to the movie, this show has a lot of beautiful European culture, and drama in it! I also highly recommend this if you’re a business major, because the main character is a marketing executive who gets placed at a Paris firm to give the company an American point of view!

Abbott Elementary (90% on Rotten Tomatoes)

Abbott Elementary is a show streamed on Hulu that is actually a sitcom in the form of a documentary, which sounds weird, but the point of the documentary aspect is the comedy itself.  The show is about five teachers and a tone deaf principal who have found themselves placed at a Philadelphia Elementary School that doesn’t always get the resources and help that they need. However, these teachers will do anything in their power to have their students succeed! This show is once again really light-hearted and super easy to watch, and episodes are not that long!

I hope you guys found these recommendations to be interesting. I would love to see comments about which one was your favorite, if you guys did end up watching any! Despite the semester coming to an end, I hope you guys have found a bit of peace and comfort in your journey this school year, and I hope everybody the best in these final upcoming weeks as the school year comes to a close!
