It’s officially that time of the semester where everyone is counting down the days until spring break. Break seems so close we can almost taste it; but alas, we still have seven days before it gets here. How will we ever get through? Netflix to the rescue! Recharge this weekend by binging one (or more!) of these Netflix shows.
One Day at a Time:

The third season of “One Day at a Time” came out on Feb. 8, and if you haven’t seen it yet, where have you been? The Alvarez family is back at it again in the newest season of the show, which tackles obstacles such as first times, anxiety attacks, addiction and machismo. Plus, as if Rita Moreno wasn’t enough of a star, the season also features guest appearances by Cuban-American royalty Gloria Estefan and beloved Brooklyn Nine Nine stars Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz. We never knew we needed Stephanie Beatriz serving up lewks in a guayabera, but I can confirm that we do.

Were you obsessed with “Skins” when you were in high school? Do you wish that Netflix had renewed “Everything Sucks!” for a second season? If you answered yes to either of these questions you need to watch “Sex Education.” The show follows British teens as they navigate high school and the world of sexual relationships. Once everyone at school finds out main character Otis’ mom is a sex therapist he finds himself running a sex clinic, despite not only being unqualified but also completely inexperienced. It’s funny, relatable and totally heart-warming.

Natasha Leone and her lion’s mane are star in yet another Netflix Original, this time it’s new series “Russian Doll.” Sort of like the 21 century “Groundhog’s Day,” the main character Nadia keeps reliving her 36 birthday. As time loops, Nadia confronts her own mortality, among other demons. Leone and her raspy voice can do no wrong, and “Russian Doll” is no exception.

If you saw “Our Ladies of Perpetual Succor” during Drew’s Out of the Box Theatre Festival last semester and loved it, you definitely need to see Derry Girls. A fair warning that the Irish accents are quite thick; seriously, you might need to put the closed captions on for this one, but it’s totally worth it. Follow the Derry Girls on their misadventures as they navigate their first year at an all-girls high school. By the end, you’ll have everyone in your friend group pinned down as either an Erin, Clare, Michelle or Orla.
