Queue: Bingeing blessings

Everyone has experienced it: the wave of hopelessness after binge-watching an entire series on Netflix. It leaves you wondering how to proceed. Trying to soothe your aching heart, you begin browsing Netflix’s inventory. Just when you thought you’d exhausted Netflix’s streaming library, another month rolls around, bringing new releases and, with it, a revived sense of purpose.

If you’re at a loss, here are few options to get you started on the road to recovery.

“The Night Shift”: 4.5/5

This television drama follows the night shift staff members, specifically ER doctor TC Callahan, of San Antonio Memorial Hospital as they navigate both their professional and personal lives. Callahan, an army veteran, struggles to shoulder the weight of his romantic feelings for his ex-girlfriend and colleague Jordan Alexander, as well as the PTSD stemming from seeing his brother’s death. Meanwhile, Alexander is torn between her unresolved feelings for Callahan and those for her current boyfriend, Scott Clemens, who moved across the country to be with her. If you’re craving the same adrenaline-inducing chaos “Grey’s Anatomy” offers, this may be the perfect show.

“Private Practice”: 3/5

A spinoff of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice” recounts neonatal surgeon Addison Montgomery’s transition from Seattle Grace Hospital to the co-owned Seaside Wellness Center in Los Angeles after finally accepting her failed marriage with neurosurgeon Derek Shepherd. Unlike “Grey’s Anatomy,” the majority of the doctors on this show aren’t surgeons, but if you miss Addison’s character, this is the show for you. The plot is less far-fetched, and the characters are still well-developed thanks to creator Shonda Rhimes.

“Bones”: 5/5

This series depicts the tumultuous relationship between prestigious forensic anthropologist Temperance “Bones” Brennan and highly-respected FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. It follows the two as they work long hours to solve murder cases both on and off the clock. Comedic with a hint of romance, “Bones” is a game-changer. It is captivating yet original, with a plethora of unexpected outcomes dissimilar to most other thriller crime shows on air today.
