Winter break opens up a lot of free time for students at Salt Lake Community College. And what better way to spend the break than to glue your eyes to a screen and binge-watch a good show?
At The Globe, we’ve compiled some of our top shows to binge-watch while the snow falls.
1. “Riverdale” on Netflix
Part thriller and part teen-romance, “Riverdale” lives on the premise of being a modern twist on the classic “Archie” comics by Bob Montana and John Goldwater. With the first two seasons on Netflix, “Riverdale” is a great way to spend 16 hours of your winter break.
2. “The Man in the High Castle” on Amazon Prime Video
An alternate-history tale of a 1960’s America where Japan and the Nazis won World War II, “The Man in the High Castle” tells the story life in an Axis-occupied U.S. and the struggle of the American resistance. Based on the novel of the same name by famed sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, binging all three seasons of “The Man in the High Castle” will take just under 30 hours.
3. “Black Mirror” on Netflix
Considered by many to me a modern “Twilight Zone,” “Black Mirror” is a series of short stories, each a suspenseful tale of modern technology gone awry. Topics range from the dangers of A.I. to horrifying consequences of being obsessed with social media. Each episode serves as an individual story, but the entire series can be binged in around 20 hours
4. “Rick and Morty” on Hulu
If there was a definitely-not-PG version of “Back to the Future,” it might look something like the animated comedy “Rick and Morty.” Following the adventures of mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith, Rick and Morty isn’t the best choice for family night, but it will provide hours of entertainment and has incredible re-watch value. A full run of all three seasons takes around 15 hours.
5. “Dark Tourist” on Netflix
A travel show about the darker parts of the world, “Dark Tourist” details journalist David Farrier’s visits to radioactive ghost towns, voodoo festivals, and suicide forests among other places. The shortest option on our list, binging the first season takes only five hours.
