Polls, games, and tips for the online Library

Tenth day of study breaks

On the tenth day of study breaks, Boley gave to me... 10 shows to watch (after exams are over). Need something to look forward to during break? These shows were some favorites of the Boley team and well worth your time during break!

Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off is back. Be sure to catch up with Prue and Paul, but one of our favorite episodes was a holiday special with the cast of the Derry Girls. And once you've watched that, we also recommend Derry Girls!

The Repair Shop

Sticking with British feel good reality television, The Repair Shop on Netflix is part Antiques Roadshow part tearjerker, and a great show to watch during break.

What We Do In The Shadows

What We Do in the Shadows is a sitcom on Hulu about 4 vampires who have lived together for centuries. From the director of Thor Ragnorok and "1/3 of the team of Flight of the Concords", it's a show that is named one of the best comedies on tv right now.

Queen's Gambit

The Queen's Gambit is a tale of an orphaned female chess prodigy as she struggles with addiction and it will have you watching episode after episode and maybe even dusting off a chess set.

Money Heist

The final installment of Netflix's Money Heist is due in 2021, so get ready by watching all the seasons of this Spanish heist series. To watch the trailer with subtitles go to settings and choose subtitles/language of choice.

The Brady Bunch

Looking for nostalgia for the 1970s? Hulu is streaming all episodes of the Brady Bunch. Or maybe the 90s? Then you'll enjoy the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion on HBO Max.

K Dramas

Looking for a K Drama? Netflix has several new ones out including The Startup, The Uncanny Counters, Crash Landing on You, and Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in solfege). A top favorite to get you started is Rookie Historian Goo Hae-Ryung. This is a tale of a young woman in the early 19th century given the opportunity to become one of the king's historians.

B Positive

B Positive is a comedy about a man in need of a kidney and the person who is the match. This show is currently on CBS and can be streamed on CBS All Active.

Amazing Race

This current season of the Amazing Race gets high marks (and was filmed before Covid), but Amazon Prime also has a new show called The Pack, which is like Amazing Race, but with your dog!
