Remember when it’s a holiday and you’re laying on your bed doing nothing (aka me this summer vacation), and you try to think of series to watch but fail to come up with names? Yeah. This is for those days. (*loud crowd cheers in the background*)

Anyways, following are some TV series you can watch when you’re bored:

  • Stranger things

Stranger Things is an American science fiction, horror web television series created, written, and directed bythe Duffer Brothersand released onNetflix. It has 2 seasons and the 3rd season will release on July 4th this year.

Set in the fictional town of Hawkins,Indiana, in the 1980s, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl withpsychokineticabilities who helps the missing boy's friends in their own search. The second season, titledStranger Things 2, is set one year later, and deals with attempts of the characters to return to normality and consequences that linger from the first season. The third season, titledStranger Things 3, is set in mid-1985.

Yeah, you might think it’s a silly sci-fi series with kids, but it’s not. After 2,3 episodes you get hooked to this series. And if you don’t start loving Dustin, Mike, Steve, Nancy, Jonathan- basically the whole cast then don’t talk to me. And you’ll start loving Eleven and her Eggos anyway.

  • The Mentalist

The Mentalist is an Americandrama television seriesthat ran from September 23, 2008, until February 18, 2015, broadcasting 151 episodes over seven seasons, on CBS.Created by Bruno Heller, who was also its executive producer, the show follows former "psychic" Patrick Jane, who is a consultant to theCalifornia Bureau of Investigation(CBI), using the highly developed observational skills he previously employed to "read" people's minds. However, his main aim is to find the murderer of his wife and daughter who adresses himself as 'Red John'. Each episode is as mindblowing as the last ones. The whole team works amazingly with Agent Cho's sarcasms, Agent Rigsby's love for food, Agent Lisbon's bossiness and Agent Grace Van Pelt's sincereness. I mean, what's not to love?

  • Black Mirror

Black Mirror is a British science fiction anthology television series created by Charlie Brooker. It examines modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences ofnew technologies. Episodes are standalone, usually set in analternative presentor the near future, often with a dark and satirical tone, though some are more experimental and lighter.

  • The end of the F***ing world

The End of the F***ing Worldis a British dark comedy-drama television programme, based on a graphic novelof the same name by Charles Forsman. The eight-part programme premiered its first episode on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom on 24 October 2017. It was a co-production with Netflix, who released it internationally on 5 January 2018.

The programme follows James a 17-year-old who believes himself to be apsychopath. He kills animals as a hobby, but grows bored of the practice. He decides he wants to try killing a human. He settles on Alyssa, a rebellious classmate who sees in James a chance to escape from her tumultuous home. She proposes they run away together, hoping for an adventure away from her turbulent home-life, and James agrees with the intention of finding an opportunity to kill her. They embark on a road trip acrossEngland, and begin to develop a relationship after a series of mishaps.

If you love dark humor, you are bound to love ‘End of the f world’. The series has just 1 season with 8 episodes in total, so it’s a one-day binge watch. The second season will be released at the end of this year (hopefully)

  • B99

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American police live-action sitcom created by Dan Goor and Michael Schurthat premiered on Fox. The series revolves around Jake Peralta , an immature-but-talented NYPD detective in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, who comes into conflict with his new commanding officer, the serious and stern Captain Raymond Holt.

It aired a total of six seasons and 130 episodes in total.
B99 is a light watch. The episodes are not too long, so you can watch it when you want to take a break from stress .Andy Samburg who portrays Jake Peralta does an excellent job throughout the series. The whole cast is amazing and it’ll always keep you laughing!
