Summer Shows Worth The Binge

Summer Shows Worth The Binge

Summertime, a time to have fun with your friends and family. A time to leave all your stresses of school life behind you. More importantly, summer is the time to finally catch up on all the shows that you’ve been missing! Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we at The Campus Crop have got you covered. Check out our list of shows that you’ve been hearing so much about. Enjoy getting your binge on, Broncos!


Enjoy a little drama? “Riverdale” is filled with drama that will keep you watching for hours. With their adaptation of Archie Comics, you’ll follow Archie and his friends as they are dealt with what seems like an unending amount of trouble as they have to overcome gangs, dead bodies and worst of all, high school. Like many of the shows we recommend, “Riverdale” can easily be binged through Netflix. Season one and  two are up and ready for you to watch. Make sure to get caught up soon because season three is said to be released in October of 2018.

“Stranger Things”

Head back to the ‘80s to a small town in Indiana called Hawkins. Watch along as a boy suddenly goes missing. His family and friends endlessly search for him and encounter many supernatural phenomena on the way. There are only two seasons of “Stranger Things,” which you can easily binge-watch in a couple of days on Netflix. But don’t wait until the last minute because rumors have been going around about season three starting in 2019.

“The Walking Dead”

Would you be able to survive the zombie apocalypse? Every day is a fight for survival for Rick and his group either against “walkers” or other groups for resources. “The Walking Dead” is an adaptation of the comic series which was created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore. Season eight finished earlier this year, so you better catch up before the ninth season releases. Episodes are regularly shown on AMC; however, the easiest place to binge this post-apocalyptic series is on Netflix.

“Queer Eye”

Want something a little more light-hearted? “Queer Eye” is a reality show starring five men, known as the Fab Five, that are experts in their own respected fields which include: food and wine, fashion, culture, interior design and grooming expertise. Every episode is a new adventure as they try to better someone’s life by offering advice. Originally known as “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” on Bravo, the show was rebooted and released earlier this year in February on Netflix. Season one was a success which quickly led to a season two being released in June, so you’ll have plenty to watch!


Probably one of the most hyped up series has been “Westworld.” While sitting in class, walking throughout campus and definitely checking your social media, there has been plenty of talk about the latest season. Based on the film “Westworld,” this show focuses on an amusement park where people are able to go to and live out their wildest dreams. See what their fantasies are by binging it on HBO Original Series. Season two recently finished on June 24 and has been renewed for a third season.

Whichever shows you choose to binge on, make sure you do it soon because by the time you know it, it’ll already be August 23 and you’ll be back in class for fall semester.
