Quarantine has been tough for many families around the globe. One thing that can calm people down during a stressful time is amazing Netflix shows. But which ones are the most popular? In a survey sent to the entire Barrack Hebrew Academy community, 55 students and faculty members agreed that the most-watched Netflix show is Outer Banks. This is an adventure mystery set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina about a social clash between the “Pogues” and the “Kooks,” who work together to find gold and figure out why John B, the protagonist’s father, died.
Fifty-three Barrack students and faculty members watched All American, and it is also this author’s favorite Netflix show. It is an exciting story about a boy named Spencer James, who lives in a poor, primarily Black neighborhood, called South Crenshaw. He is a football star and is given the amazing opportunity to play football at Beverly Hills high school. Because Spencer is so good at football and he does not have a home in Beverly Hills, he goes to live with a rich family named the Bakers where he feels as if he is not welcomed at first. However, he starts to feel more comfortable in Beverly Hills towards the end of the show. The series is filled with tons of crazy drama that you would not expect!
Thirty-five Barrack students and faculty members watched Tiger King. This show is insane. It is a documentary about the feud over who is the better tiger owner between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, two crazy tiger owners. Joe accuses Carole of killing her husband by feeding him to her tigers.
The least-watched show, which only 18 Barrack students and faculty members watched, is You. This show is about a psychopath named Joe who is obsessed with a girl named Beck. After going to great lengths to date Beck, Joe does something terrible to her and to many other people who try to get in his way.
Included in the survey was a place to list other shows people have binged during the quarantine. Some popular shows people have watched and recommend are Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Glee, New Girl, Riverdale, Grey’s Anatomy, Cobra Kai, The Office, Arrow, Flash, Vampire Diary, and The Good Place. If you haven’t watched any of these shows yet, go watch and enjoy them! Barrack folks know what they are talking about when it comes to Netflix shows!
