1. Chill out with Broad City

Broad City follows Abbi and Ilana, two 20-somethings just trying to get by in the big city, not unlike all of us here at Ryerson. It's funny, relatable, and easily binge-able with 25 minute episodes.

4. Explore the world of Bojack Horseman

This animated dramedy will make you laugh and cry, taking a satirical look at politics, current events and Hollywood while also managing to realistically portray depression, past trauma and self-destructive behaviour.

6. Stay woke and watch Dear White People

The series uses irony, brutal honesty and humour to highlight issues that still plague today's "post-racial" society. Students struggle with outdated politics, misguided activism and social injustice in this satirical dramedy.

9. Get comfortable and watch The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on Earth follows a sad and lonely Phil Miller as he struggles to find other survivors and the misadventures that ensue as more and more people join his group in this post-apocalyptic reality.

10. Experience the terror of American Horror Story

The best part about this seven-season horror anthology is that you don't have to see the whole series to understand each season. As someone who's seen it all, the first, second and third seasons were my favourite, but don't miss the new season! There are new episodes every Tuesday.

11. Hold onto the edge of your seat for Black Mirror

Black Mirror taps into our society's collective unease about the modern world with satirical stand-alone dramas that explore the extreme consequences of new technologies.

12. Witness the suspense with Hannibal

Based on the novel and movie adaptation, Hannibal is a 3-season psychological thriller/horror series that you won't soon forget, focusing on the relationship between FBI special investigator Will Graham and the cannibal-psychiatrist we all know, Hannibal Lecter.

13. You won't be able to stop watching Parks and Recreation

Taking a page from The Office, Parks and Rec is a documentary-style sitcom that follows the lives of government employees, both in the office and out.

16. Get your true crime fix with Mindhunter

Curious about the origins of the term 'serial killer'? Mindhunter is based on the true story of two FBI agents who attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying them.
