Genre: Crime Drama, Comedy

Number of Seasons: 6

(81 episodes, 40 minutes)

Art aficionado, thief, and master conman Neal Caffrey starts White Collar off by escaping prison only to get caught by the same FBI agent who arrested him the first time, Peter Burke.

To avoid jail time, and to have a small sense of freedom, Neal makes a deal with the FBI. Instead of prison, he teams up with Peter.

As the unlikely pair takes on New York’s other white collar criminals, it becomes clear that other people – ones that are far more dangerous – need Neal. Not only that, but those people are also keeping Kate, Neal’s girlfriend, away from him to get what they want.

The show will have you laughing along to Mozzie, Neal’s quirky friend and fellow conman, questioning the motives of every character, and clicking play for that next episode so that you can find out what happens next.

Netflix has all six seasons online.



Genre: Science Fiction, Drama

Number of Seasons: 1

(12 episodes, 60 minutes)

If you’re all about character-driven shows with a strong plot, give this show a try. I don’t gravitate toward Science Fiction, but I loved this show because the characters are incredible.

This show follows eight strangers who become mentally

and emotionally linked. As the characters begin to recognize this connection and how to control it, they begin to interact more to understand each other and what is happening to them.

The show takes place all over the world like Iceland, Korea, and Africa, so it’s rich in diversity. The shooting locations on this show are beautiful, and it’s nice to see a show that isn’t set in America.

Each episode ends in a cliffhanger, so it’s definitely hard to stop once you’ve started. If you’re looking for a show with a gripping plot and loveable characters, charge your laptop and stream it on Netflix tonight.
