New Netflix Shows

With Netflix constantly adding and removing shows all the time and it’s hard to keep up and find something that’s worth your time to binge, especially with the break coming up. The popularity of Netflix Original shows has skyrocketed ever since the premiere of “Stranger Things.”

Within the past few months, they have taken off well-known shows like “30 Rock” and “One Tree Hill,” as well as later seasons of “Bones” and “Family Guy.” Lucky for us, they’ve added quite a few new original shows like “Big Mouth” and “Mindhunter.”

Created by Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, and Jessi Klein, “Big Mouth” is described as a group teenage friends going through puberty and being shocked by it written by real-life friends Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg.

One of the co-writers, Andrew Goldberg, has written for a number of comedies before including “Family Guy” and “American Dad”. So, if you think those shows are funny, you’ll probably enjoy this one too because it is very well-written.

It’s very popular among teens and young adults and some may even say it’s all too real and relatable to anyone who’s gone through puberty.

“It’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen,” said Annie Bunster, a senior. “It’s so funny and relatable I tell all my friends to watch it,” said Bunster.

“Mindhunter,” created by Joe Penhall, is a show about two FBI agents set in the 1970s who decide to delve into people’s minds and the “psychology of murder.” To do this, they must become close with the killers so they can get a deeper peek into their minds. They gain insight by sort of becoming friends with them and bribing them to tell their stories with pizza.

With a 96 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the fact that this show is based off of real killers makes it stand out. Also, Jonathan Groff may be recognized from being on the hit TV series, “Glee” as Jesse St. James and also the voice of Kristoff in “Frozen”.

“It’s a really interesting show and I like the idea of it,” said senior Jack Littler. “I hope they renew it for a second season because I like it so far,” said Littler.

Although it’s annoying how Netflix continually removes well-loved shows, hopefully these new ones will keep people satisfied for a while.
