Netflix and Cram?

Updated: Nov 16, 2019

In the midst of midterms I am sure there is only one thing on your mind- “what should I binge on Netflix?” Depending on the class, I like to watch shows while I am studying. It sometimes helps me to have slight stimulation in the background, or if nothing else it can make the studying process a bit more bearable.

Now comes the hard part- not spending an absurd amount of time trying to figure out what to watch. That’s where I come in. I made a little flow-chart that will lead you to two Netflix shows to choose from based on genre, mood, situation, etc. I have also included the short description of each show from Netflix to help narrow down your next binge! Happy midterms!
