Shows On Netflix You Probably Scroll Past But You Totally Need To Watch

Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

There are tons of shows on Netflix to choose from. A lot of the time we go directly to the hits we’ve heard our friends talking about. But what do you do when you’ve binge-watched your way through literally everything? Here are some shows you should totally watch that you definitely just scroll right past.

 

Feel like some superhero drama? Then you have to check out The Umbrella Academy. It’s about an eccentric billionaire who adopted seven children born under crazy circumstances. He raised them basically to be a superhero team prepared to save the world. After their father’s death, the siblings find themselves facing the threat he always warned them about: the end of the world. Fun fact: My Chemic Romance frontman Gerard Way co-created the comic book which the show is based on and is also an EP on the show. Pretty cool!

 

Want just straight-up drama? Then give Pose a try. It’s a dance musical about ball culture in 1980s New York. It follows Blanca Rodriguez who creates a house for LGBTQ youth who were disowned by their own family. It was nominated for Best Drama Series at the Emmy’s, so that points out how good the show is, right?

 

Love reality tv but are a little tired of Keeping Up With The Kardashians Then you should watch Terrace House. It’s about six strangers who live together in a house, go on dates, fall in love, etc. It’s like The Real World, except it’s in Japan and is less dramatic. The show has six commentators who react to what’s happening in the house. It’s interesting because it shows how different reality television is in other countries.

 

So go get binging!
