If I were stranded on a dessert island, and had to choose 3 Netflix series to watch, I would choose these: 

ONE




Pretty Little Liars.... I started season one of this show last fall, and let me just tell you that it was the best/worst idea I had all semester. The BEST because I LOVE this show. The worst idea, because it was mid-semester and I spent way too much time watching TV when I should've been studying and/or sleeping during that extra time. I got caught up by January, and I watched the end of season 6 on Hulu as the episodes came out. By the end of season 6, I kinda feel like the writers may have gone too far... they probably should've just stopped halfway through season 6, but because I'm so invested in this show now, I'll probably still watch the new season to see how it all plays out. This show is full of mystery and suspense, but also throws in some major love interests, lots of friendship, and plenty of family drama. If you haven't watched PLL, you should def check it out!!

TWO


GOSSIP GIRL! AHH! As if I didn't learn my lesson fall semester, then this spring once PLL was over, I started in on Gossip Girl. I really loved this show! PLL was good because it was suspenseful, and kept me on my toes, but Gossip Girl is a little more realistic, yet still scandalous. This show is about an extremely wealthy group of teenagers living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and all of the scandals and drama that surround them. The relationship issues can be relatable, but the wealth is a huge cause of the drama and the resolutions, and their whole lifestyles are all very frivolous, and I think that's part of what makes it so good! I loved the characters, and I was so sad once it was over, because I wanted to continue knowing what was going on in their lives!


THREE

The third series was so hard for me to choose. GG & PLL were easy because I've recently watched them, and really loved them both! For number 3 I'm going to have to choose ONE TREE HILL. This show brings back SO MANY memories for me, because I watched it during both high school and college, and I really felt like I was growing up with these characters (especially in high school). Their relationship struggles, pain, fear, etc. were all so real for high schoolers. The lack of parents, etc. was definitely not as relatable, but c'mon... its a TV show. If you didn't grow up having a crush on Chad Michael Murray, and yearning for a love as faithful and strong Nathan and Haley, but raw and passionate like Peyton and Lucas, then I'm afraid you missed out majorly! Once I got Netflix a few years ago, this was one of the first series I (re)watched. Still loved it several years after it aired. 



So those are my 3 fav shows that I'd take with me if I were stranded on an island and had access to Netflix. Hart of Dixie was a close runner up, as was Gilmore Girls and Fuller House.
