Lots of Originals coming to Netflix in May

Every month, Netflix adds new homework distractions and takes away old ones.

May is an exciting time, and not just because it means the semester is almost over.

Like it does every month, Netflix is adding items to its list of TV shows and movies and taking away old ones. 

In May, Netflix is adding a lot of Netflix Originals. I’m not sure what to expect from most of these, but here are three of the ones that I am most interested in watching after finals weeks.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

This movie shows the crimes of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his long-time girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer. As a fan of crime shows and movies, I am excited to see Zac Efron’s portrayal of one of the most famous serial killers in American history. 

How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) (Season 1)

This new show is about a high school student who starts selling drugs online to try to impress his ex-girlfriend. I think there’s a lot of potential for this show to tackle some serious issues teenagers deal with in an entertaining way. I just hope it’s not an attempt to copy “Breaking Bad.” 

Undercover (Season 1)

As I've previously stated, I love crime shows, so I am excited to see whether or not this show about undercover agents attempting to infiltrate a drug lord’s operation is any good.
