15. Sons of Anarchy, 2008-2014

Just a few episodes of Sons of Anarchy will have you wanting to join SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club – Redwood Original)! The leads Jax (Charlie Hunnam), Gemma (Katey Sagal), and Clay (Ron Perlman), are amazing, but SOA also has an incredible supporting cast as well.

Sons of Anarchy follows Jax, the VP of SAMCRO, a motorcycle club dealing with government corruption, rival gangs, and a tangled web of lies. It’s not your typical dark drama, and don’t label it as simply a “motorcycle club” show. SOA is so much more than that! Expect violence for sure, but also amazing characters — just don’t get too attached to any of them! As dark as this crime drama is, there’s also a lot of comedy thrown in at the perfect times. After all, show creator Kurt Sutter has a twisted sense of humor. You’ll either love it or hate it, or stick around for it anyway for its story.

Where to Watch: Netflix

14. Friends, 1994-2004

Okay, first of all….who HASN’T seen Friends? Guys, this is a classic. Shame on you if you aren’t already a fan of the series. But also, congrats on wanting to give this sitcom a chance! You know who stars in Friends, you even know the theme song, so why not watch it? Pick an upcoming weekend dedicated to Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel, Joey, and Phoebe. You’ll be hooked after only a couple of episodes.

If you’re afraid Friends is only laughs and careless humor, you’re dead wrong. Sure, you’ll laugh in almost every scene, but Friends is also there to teach life lessons! Life isn’t easy for these six friends; they go through a lot! And you’ll want to be there for them, too.

Where to Watch: Netflix
