Within the last year, new show after new show has been popping up everywhere. When these new series come out, it doesn’t take long for them to either be enjoyed or disliked. Ever so often, these TV shows hit it off with the teenage age group, and thus, we soon begin to binge–and then we rewatch it two or three or four more times. So, we asked the students of Mountain View what their favorite shows to binge are–their answers ranged from an adventurous mystery show set on the east coast to a soap opera following Hot Doctors set in the West Coast. 

Olivia Nagle,12, and Natalie Siecgrist, 9, said that they have watched “Outer Banks” probably three times. “Outer Banks” is a show about a group of friends who end up looking for a treasure all while dealing with your typical teenage drama, it currently has three seasons. 

Sophomores Alexander Norman and Kaylee Rogers had two very opposite shows. Norman, who watched the show, “The Walking Dead,”  said, “‘The Walking Dead’ has a really good storyline that keeps me intrigued enough to watch it four times.” This show follows your basic zombie apocalypse trope as people are just trying to stay alive, it has 11 seasons. 

Rogers, who enjoys the show “The Vampire Diaries,” said, “The show is very interesting with all of the drama in it. I also like it because of the characters.” “The Vampire Diaries” follows the romantic heart of Elana Gilbert as two guys go against each other for her affection; it has eight seasons. 

Bernadette Martinez, 11,  binges on the show “Shameless” because she believes the show is intriguing as well as has good character development. “Shameless” is all about your classic dysfunctional family led by a drunken father who leaves his children to fend for themselves. 

Ashton Nickoden, 11, has watched the show “Dexter” twice and said, “It was a good murder mystery show, and I’m sad that it ended.” “Dexter” follows a serial killer whos compulsions only tell him to kill people who are guilty. If you are into murder, horror, or mystery then this is the perfect show for you. 

Manuel Chacon, 12,  says that he enjoys the show “Grey’s Anatomy” and has watched the series a total of three times. Chacon said, “I really enjoy the drama because it’s extremely entertaining.” “Grey’s Anatomy” is about a bunch of hot doctors whose journey to become doctors gets intertwined with love, friendships, and heartbreak. 

Watching different shows or even the same ones allows students to take a break from school and focus on something a little less stressful. These shows that students’ binge makes life a little more interesting and can be a comfort for some people. Plus, who wants to do their homework when you can watch a show about hot doctors?
