The way we watch TV is changing. Netflix is the future of television with almost any show at the click

of a button. This method of entertainment is awesome for high school kids because we do not have to

popular on Netflix.

Many of us students love actor Danny McBride,

also known as Kenny Powers, and he is the main

attraction of this insanely funny comedy. It is all

about a former minor league pitcher struggling

with life and the troubles of being a failed

professional athlete. After a sketchy career in the

Big Leagues he must return to his hometown school in North Carolina to substitute teach P.E. He is

extremely cocky and is obsessed with the ladies but struggles with them at the same time. It is

hilarious and definitely recommend giving it a try if you like an overconfident baseball player with a

raging curly mullet. This show is not a Netflix original program, but it is growing in popularity

through Netflix.

that may actually be behind today’s politicians. It is two seasons long and the third will be released in

early 2015.

“Trailer Park Boys” is ridiculous. It is almost

entirely men with pistols running around a

trailer park being as unproductive as humanly

possible. It is slapstick humor that cannot be

compared to any other show on this list. It shows
