Everyone has a hobby that consumes most of their free time. One of the most popular hobbies for teenagers is binge watching television shows on streaming services.

Netflix is the most well-known steaming service, largely because of shows such as The Officeand Friends. These two shows are known for their humor and the ability to make the audience fall in love with their characters. The viewer enjoys a sitcom of a paper company in Scranton, PA. Steve Carell is the boss of the branch, and there is no such thing as an ordinary day at the office. Friendsis a classic that started in 1994 and ran for ten seasons. This show still resonates with the audience because of the bond that the characters build with each other throughout the ten seasons.  This is the ultimate friend group who has each other’s back through everything.

Recently, several popular shows such as How I Met Your Motherand Sons of Anarchy moved from Netflix to Hulu. Netflix has lost numerous shows and has geared more to Netflix Originals. Many of these shows and movies have become popular with the audience. Peaky Blinders, which is a series based in the 1920’s, follows a group of outlaws that run Birmingham, England. There is nothing that happens in Birmingham that doesn’t go through the leader of the Peaky Blinders, Thomas Shelby. Next, Big Mouth has become instant fan favorite. This show is based on middle school kids who are experiencing growing pains. Because of its animation and humor, it has really resonated with teens and college students.

With all the changes that Netflix is making, fans are wondering what is in store for the future. With new shows coming out monthly, viewers should feel confident that they will find something they enjoy.
