Part II: ‘Tis the season for Netflix

You're Welcome

December 23, 2014

Starting tomorrow, you have 12 days of break. During these days, you will most likely catch up on your school work, clean your room, solve world hunger. Or, you will lay in bed all day watching Netflix. But, after you finish the final season of Gossip Girl, what should you be watching?

The OHS Magnet team has taken it upon themselves to come up with a helpful guide of the shows and movies you need to see if you haven’t already.

TV Shows:

We mainly use Netflix for binge watching TV shows, but Netflix originated with movies. These are some of the best ones we found for streaming:

 

Genre Rating Run Time Stars
