Winter is OUT: These 8 Shows are IN All Summer Long

As this school year comes to an end and summer is around the corner, things are going to slow down for you. As a student, I get a 2 and a half month break from homework, exams, group projects, and a demanding schedule. Because everything comes to a temporary halt, summer is the perfect time to start a new TV show!

I am a HUGE TV show person. When I’m doing my makeup, cleaning my room, tanning, or of course, sitting in bed, I always have a TV show on. The only problem with this is that I go through shows fast and I feel like I’ve watched everything out there. Whether you're like me (an avidTV watcher), or new to the game and are looking for something to enjoy watching this summer, this article is perfect for you. I have collected some of the MUUZ team’s all time favorite shows so take your pick and enjoy!

1. Sex And The City

Sex And The City

An oldie but a goodie, Sex and the City is one of Ellie and Tehlia’s favorites. Sex and the City takes place in New York and is about four women who are best friends. It takes a candid look at their own lives, love lives, and sex lives. This show is so comforting because no matter what occurs within the show, the four women remain inseparable friends and I think watching friendships flourish is one of the most comforting things. You can watch Sex and the City on Netflix!

2. The Summer I Turned Pretty

The Summer I Turned Pretty

I admit, this show can be a little cringy, but I was obsessed with it. It’s only two seasons so if you are looking for something a little shorter, this is definitely for you. This is one of Alexia’s favorites and another one of Ellies. It takes place in a beach town called “Cousins Beach” and it’s all about a love triangle between a girl and two brothers. I finished this show so fast I could not stop watching. Highly recommend for a quick, summer time feel show. You can watch The Summer I Turned Pretty on Amazon Prime!

3. Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars

This show is one of my personal favorites. I actually just rewatched this with my roommates throughout last semester and it was so fun to watch again. I love crime and mystery shows but PLL also has love, drama and friendship. PLL is one of those shows that you will be up all night watching because each episode ends on a cliffhanger and it's 9 seasons long so if you're looking for a longer show this is definitely it. You can watch Pretty Little Liars on Hulu!

4. Love Is Blind

Love Is Blind

We love a reality tv show and the best part about this one is that you can binge it because it's on netflix. This is one of Avi and I’s favorites and it's the best. Not only is it a fun drama filled reality tv show but it also has a really powerful message behind it. In summary, 15 men and 15 women talk to each other from behind a wall and they cannot meet each other until they commit to one another. It’s really cool to see people fall in love without seeing each other first and a great reminder that it is what’s on the inside that truly matters. Your hair, skin, fashion and all of the things that are on the outside will change, but the you on the inside will always stay the same. You can watch Love is Blind on Netflix!

5. My Life With The Walter Boys

My Life With The Walter Boys

There is only one season of this show and I am counting down the days till the next one comes out. This show is similar to The Summer I Turned Pretty, but different enough to watch both and still love both. Jackie, the main character, comes from New York and moves in with the Walter’s, a family of 10 kids on a ranch in Colorado. It’s an adjustment for Jackie, but she definitely makes herself at home and finds herself falling in love with more than one Walter boy. Highly recommend it. You can watch My Life with the Walter Boys on Netflix!

6. The OC

The OC

This is one of Mia and Danielle’s favorites. This show takes place in Newport Beach, Orange County which is the best place for a show to take place, although I may be a little biased because I’m from there ;). It’s four seasons full of drama and comedy. The fashion in the series is amazing and is very easy to watch and enjoy. You can watch The OC on Hulu!

7. Survivor


\If you are into more action based reality TV, this is the show for you. There’s 46 seasons and each one is different in its own way. Avi loves this show and I grew up watching it with my family. It's so fun to enjoy with other people. My family and I used to make bets on who we thought would end up winning in the end and it’s a great way to stay engaged throughout the season. You can watch Survivor on Netflix!

8. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Saving the best for last, Gossip Girl just simply never goes out of style. I think the entire MUUZ team loves this show, because how could you not. The friendships, love, drama, relationships, and fashion are all top tier. The perfect word for this series is iconic, it’s just the best! You can watch Gossip Girl on Amazon Prime!
