As the age of technology increases, we begin to see a shift in the term, “binge watching.” Once a term used for when you’re at home watching your favorite shows or movies on repeat is now a term that has gone mobile. As Netflix, Hulu and free apps become more available for phones and tablets, it’s easy to become more engulfed in the world of “binge watching” everywhere, and anytime. So what shows are worthy of college students time? Well, here are the 7 most binge-worthy shows:

1. Stranger Things: This Golden Globe nominated show is about a boy who disappears. The town who is on the hunt to find him discovers different realms, secret government experiments and a girl with supernatural abilities.

2.The Office: In an office home to workers of a paper company in Scranton, PA employees document their experiences through comedy, pranks and interactions from one another. EvCC student Anthony Murray said The Office is his favorite show because “the writing is full of comedy gold, but mainly because it takes something as dull as a desk job at a paper company and makes it hilarious.”

3. Parks and Recreation: A show that is home to comedians such as leading actress Amy Poehler and Lake Stevens’ own Chris Pratt gives comical relief to the government work of Parks and Recreation and how a woman must lead a community through the hurdles of the city officials.
