One of the most commonly coined terms in the past year has been "Netflix and Chill," and now more than ever we have the sexiest shows to fill those time slots. Whether it be online or on cable, the winter months have kept us hibernating with great entertainment. It seems less and less appealing to head out to a crowded club, wait in line, buy overpriced drinks and encounter drunken idiots when we have all we need behind our front door. Whether we are solo, with friends and family or with our hunny, getting wrapped up in a great series is highly addicting. It's something we can all follow together wanting more after the latest cliffhangers and can easily initiate anger at those who give away spoilers.
Series have pushed their boundaries the more they see its viewers are continually engaged and create cult like love for its content. I remember almost everyone I know waiting eagerly on the final episode of Breaking Bad. Television shows have become the topic of conversation, arise disappointment at unsatisfying finales and provide consistent approval at the well-made episodes each week. It is a fact that us humans are drawn into all the drama, comedy and horror provided to us by great networks. Here are a few shows that you can expect to get hooked on this year. It's time to get excited about all the new and sexy series coming onto our screens in 2016, pop that popcorn and have a read...
