Written by: Lauren Groff

Looking for a new TV show? With all of the stress of constant schoolwork and extracurriculars, any Sparta student can tell you that free time to watch their favorite TV series has become sacred. Every moment you spend watching your favorite shows between homework should be spent watching something you actually enjoy and are interested in, right? As most of us have learned the hard way, the show that your peers are raving about may not always be of your interest. Here are a few suggestions based on your interests to avoid wasting time watching the wrong flicks.

If you are a sports fan.... Friday Night Lights

Enjoy this NBC tv series, following the lives of highschool football players and their families thriving in their small, football-crazed Texas hometown. This show is honest, entertaining, and illustrates the important lessons every teen learns throughout their lifetime.

If Sci-Fi excites you… Stranger Things

Chances are you've most likely heard about this one… but because it's such a good show, I'm here to tell you once again. Stranger Things, produced by the Duffer Brothers takes a unique spin on every classic 80's movie while uncovering an extremely dark and disturbing government secret. I must admit, I was never a sci-fi fan until I began watching this series, and I immediately fell in love with it!

If you like comedy… Parks and Recreation

This NBC sticom starring Amy Poehler revolves around Poehler`s hilarious character, Leslie Knope, and her determination to beautify her town. Filled with lighthearted banter that is sure to make you grin, Parks and Recreation is the perfect show to take a break with at the end of the day.


If you`re into fashion… Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl follows the lives of the children of the ridiculously wealthy Upper East-Side NYC tycoons. With their parents often away on important business ventures, the kids rule the scene with their high-fashion outfits and outrageous parties throughout the city. The costume budget for this show was particularly high, and every outfit is immaculate on Serena Van DerWoodsen (Blake Lively) and her best friend, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester). If you enjoy the fashion industry, Gossip Girl is the perfect place to get some inspiration!
