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

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

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!
