Currently Streaming

When I moved out and found an apartment, I also had to look at cable/internet packages with Service Electric Cablevision. I had Service Electric in college and wasn't a fan, but they offered a package with cable, On Demand, and relatively reliable internet for $50/ month. It was great to have such a low fee that we split four ways, but it turns out there's no such discount once you move out of the college town and are an "adult" After paying so little for semi-reliable service, I couldn't bring myself to pay for the "adult" packages and ended up only purchasing an overpriced internet plan along with a Netflix account. I've been flying through all of the shows I knew I wanted to watch/ re-watch so my question for you is what are your must-see shows on Netflix?
Let me fill you in on what I've already watched:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer- Growing up I was obsessed with Buffy. I remember watching the new episodes with my parents and thinking I was a slayer and jumping around trying to imitate the slayer stunts. Try not to judge that last statement, I was a child for heaven sake.  I was so excited to see this as an option and would get sucked in to the next episode hours after I planned to go to sleep. I cried when it was over and started Angel just to get a little more Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz in my life, but I haven't fully invested myself in it yet.
Gossip Girl- I watched most of Gossip Girl when it was on in high school and vividly remember talking on the phone with my best friend throughout the episodes obsessing over the "scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite" while tossing our own high school drama into the conversations. I never finished the series but had the ending spoiled for me. I was so excited to see it on Netflix and binged the show. I even watched when we were in Bordeaux. I wasn't disappointed with the ending despite the fact that I knew exactly what was coming.
One Tree Hill- Following Gossip Girl, I craved another drama and found One Tree Hill. I started watching OTH in high school during the fourth season, was really into it, then just forgot about it. This time around, to Kyle's dismay, I stayed hooked and didn't know what to do with myself when I finally finished.
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt- I moved onto this comedy after hearing rave reviews. I loved and laughed my way through this silly little show. I can't wait for it's return on April 15th.
Charmed- Every summer growing up I would watch Charmed at 9AM while I ate my breakfast. I had seen a lot of the episodes, but I had never watched the complete series. I decided to watch it and wasn't disappointed.
Jessica Jones- I was absolutely clueless as to what I was going to watch after Charmed so I texted my friend and she suggested Jessica Jones. I'm not super into comic books or super heroes but I flew through the season and was disappointed there weren't more episodes. The good news is that Marvel and Netflix confirmed a second season, bad news is there aren't any details on its release.
Dexter- This came up as a suggested show when I finished Jessica Jones so I gave it a shot. I was obsessed. Not quite as bad as my Breaking Bad obsession-I watched all five seasons in four and a half days in college. I left my room and slept as little as possible during those four and a half days. During Dexter on the other hand, I had a job so I couldn't exactly binge day and night. But all the cliffhangers would drive me to watch "just the first 10 minutes" aka the whole next episode before going to bed. I was SO upset by the ending, as everyone warned me I would be. But I would absolutely watch it again.
Friends- I also grew up with Friends because my mom was a fanatic. In college, I would watch it whenever it was on but never watched the full series. I couldn't get enough of it. I was so disappointed with ending but mostly because it was over and I didn't get to look at that adorable apartment or Central Perk anymore.

I tried to watch Psych and Lost but couldn't get into them. I love trashy dramas full of bad acting and ludicrous situations. Comedies don't always hold my interest but are good for when I come home from school and need a good laugh.

So now you're up. What are your favorites? I need recommendations!
