Michigan has some of the most affordable housing stock anywhere in the country. Since we are huge advocates of enjoying the houses you live in– even in the colder months when trips to the beach are out of the question, we decided to put together this quick list of the top 5 shows you can stream from your smart device this winter. Stay Warm & Stay Cozy! The shows listed below can be viewed using such services as: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime & normal TV.
- American Crime (ABC & Netflix) – This drama is suspenseful and gets the viewer deeply involved with all characters. The show covers many hot button and controversial issues currently happening in the US- over a fictional story line. Each season has a different story line- but many of the same actors.
- Goliath (Amazon Prime) – This legal drama features Billy Bob Thornton as a formerly prominent now washed up attorney who takes on a client bringing charges against a major corporation who is being defended by the law firm he started and left. Every episode ends in a cliff- hanger. A truly binge-able show.
- Fuller House (Family Friendly) (Netflix) – This sit-comedy needs no explanation. If you were a fan of the original, or want a show to bond with kids over this is it. Frequent cameos from everyone on the original cast except the Olsen twins. Our hearts melt with cheesiness every time a reference to the original show is made (9x per episode minimum)
- Good Girls Revolt (Amazon Prime) — This Amazon original series is a drama that takes place in Manhattan in the 1960s. If you like Mad Men period type shows you will love this. The show chronicles the women and men of “News of the Week” as cultural changes start to rock their worlds.
- Stranger things (Family Friendly but Scary) (Netflix) – This Sci-Fi Drama chronicles children in the 1980’s as they discover an parallel dimension that begins to cross into their own.
- Orange is the New Black (Netflix) – Now in season 4 this prison comedy is based on a true story.
- Sherlock (Netflix) – A modern take on the classic Sherlock Holmes drama. This version that stars Benedict Cumberbatch has plot twists and suspense at every turn. Binge Worthy!
- Red Oaks (Amazon Prime) – This original comedy series by Amazon is set in the 1980’s and circles around young people trying to figure out who they are and what they want to be.
- The Grand Tour (Family Friendly) (Amazon Prime) — Described by many as the new “Top Gear” this new Amazon adaption features the cast of Top Gear and the hottest and coolest cars in the world.
