If all else fails, Netflix and Hulu are always there to transport you to worlds of fantasy and adventure. Maybe that adventure is competitive chess, maybe it’s the ballroom scene of the 1980’s or maybe it’s a post apocalyptic nightmare. Whatever you choose, don’t fall victim to the too-good-to-be-true pirating websites that will viciously infect your device with many a virus. One great show to binge over the break is 2019’s “Sex Education.” It’s three seasons long, the perfect length for a two-week break, and is filled with humor, romance and self-discovery. The characters are multi-faceted and wonderfully developed, and their relationships even more so. If Asa Butterfield and Ncuti Gatwa bickering with each other isn’t your thing, another option is “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.” It’s a whirlwind of an anime series with ridiculous characters—each season getting weirder than the last. If you end up being emotionally invested in Jojo’s multigenerational fight with vampires, Aztecs and the police, perhaps you’ll continue watching into second semester. Maybe you’ll even turn your attention towards the source material—the “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” manga by Hirohiko Araki. However, “Jojo’s” is definitely intended for a very specific audience (read: a crazy one).
