Queen’s Gambit

After losing her mother, 9-year-old Beth Harmon is sent to live at an orphanage. One day when she’s cleaning chalkboard erasers in the basement, she meets the school janitor, who teaches her how to play chess. Soon realizing Beth is a prodigy, she begins playing at higher levels, even playing the entire high school chess team at her young age.

Schitt’s Creek

A hilarious yet heartwarming comedy, Schitt’s Creek has quickly become a fan favorite among Netflix viewers. When a wealthy family loses everything, they are forced to move from their luxurious mansion to a motel in the middle of nowhere. As they begin to adjust to their new lives in a small town and small living quarters, they endure culture shock like never before — saying goodbye to their shopping sprees and fancy trips. While witty and funny, this comedy also presents incredible character development throughout the series. You won’t be able to stop watching, and you won’t want the show to end!

Behind Her Eyes

For those in search of a thriller and a mystery, Behind Her Eyes is a great place to start. When Louise meets David, an attractive man at a local bar, they instantly hit it off. However, she finds out on Monday at work that he is her boss at her new job. She is even more surprised to learn about his wife, Adele. When Adele randomly befriends Louise, Louise finds herself stuck in the middle of her fling with David and friendship with Adele. As time goes on, she realizes their marriage may have some darker secrets than each of them lets on. Adele’s sinister past can potentially be to blame. With a plot twist and cliffhangers that keep you hooked, this psychological thriller is a great choice for mystery lovers.
