The semester is starting to heat up, so instead of studying or catching up on your readings, why don’t you do what all of us college students do best: binge watch on Netflix. Here are some quick Netflix picks to get you through the semester.
Easy (2016): Easy is an 8 part miniseries that deals with subjects such as love, dating, relationships, technology and much more. Each episode focuses on a different character living in modern day Chicago. Featuring actors such as Orlando Bloom and Marc Maron, this series is a quick and interesting watch.
Amanda Knox (2016): If you haven’t heard the name Amanda Knox, now you have. This documentary looks into the details of the 2007 murder of Amanda’s roommate and all that followed. If you have a weak stomach you might want to steer clear of this one.

Portlandia Season 6 (2016): If you’re a hipster you’re likely to have a love/hate relationship with Portlandia. If you’re not a hipster, you’ll love it. Be sure to catch up on the first five seasons first.
