I absolutely love Netflix and watching TV on the weekends, so I decided that I would list my top 8 favourite shows on Netflix that you need to watch! There’s some for my younger audience and my older audience!
Set in the 99th Precinct of the NYPD (New York Police Department), this show follows a team of detectives and their new captain. The main character, Jake Peralta is a top detective, despite his careless and sometimes-crazy attitude. His partner, Amy Santiago, is the complete opposite. She does everything by the books and is obsessed with Binder Folders. This show is hilarious, and I would highly recommend.
