Since stay-at-home orders began in N.H and across the country, many people have found a lot of extra time on their hands. Quite a few of those people choose to fill their time by streaming movies and tv shows on popular services like Netflix, Disney+ and Hulu.
Popular shows right now on Netflix include the series “Outer Banks” and “Tiger King.” Junior Sophia Yeganeh said she watched and enjoyed Outer Banks, the drama set in North Carolina.
“It’s slow to start but gets really intense in the last few episodes… it’s entertaining and makes me miss summer,” Yeganeh said. “It’s about a bunch of kids who live on the Outer Banks and have money struggles. Then they follow a treasure hunt for $400 million worth of gold.”
Senior Nathaniel Lemai said he is enjoying “Tiger King,” a limited docu-series that chronicles the eccentric private zoo owner Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic.
“It’s such a crazy show. It’s like a car wreck; it’s terrible yet you can’t look away. Each time I think it can’t get any crazier, it does,” Lemai said. “Everything from a person’s arm being ripped off to arson to potential murder is in it, and I’m only on episode 5.”
Others have looked for older shows on Netflix that they describe as hidden gems. Exeter Junior Maille Hagen said she has been watching “Arrested Development.”
“‘Arrested Development’ is kind of like ‘The Office,’ which is why I started watching it, it’s bland humor but it’s hilarious and it really picks up in season 2,” Hagen said.
She also said she is watching a crime drama, “Ozark.”
“The main character of ‘Ozark’ is played by Jason Bateman, who is also in ‘Arrested Development,’ which is why I started watching that,” Hagen said. “‘Ozark’ is a crime drama about a money-laundering scheme with a drug lord, not only is it a good crime show but it’s also super funny so it hits two categories I like.”
Junior Morgan Glover said she chose to watch a drama on Netflix and picked up Grey’s Anatomy.
“It’s really interesting, kind of drama-filled and it’s just entertaining to watch,” Glover said. “There are five main characters the show follows, and it shows their experiences from being an intern at a hospital to becoming a surgeon.”
