These top five shows are a sure fire way to enjoy some free time to get away from it all.

5. Big Bang Theory
Big Bang Theory
is a comedic show about geniuses that work in different apartments of a university. The show follows the characters Sheldon Cooper, a socially awkward genius. Leonard Hofstadter an experimental physicist who also shares an apartment with Sheldon. Penny, a party girl that is dating Leonard who also lives across the hall from the two. Raj Koothrappali, who is an astrophysicist, has the inability to talk around women and is Leonard’s best friend, and last but not least Howard Wolowitz, he is an Aerospace Engineer and is often seen at Sheldon’s and Leonard’s apartment. This group may not seem it but they bring a comedy that hardly anything else does. Big Bang Theory appears weekly on TBS.
4. Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends
Fosters follows a group of characters that perform in crazy things like traveling across the country to get one of their best friends back. The characters are Mac, a teenage boy who has trouble letting go of things; and Bloo; Mac’s imaginary friend. Frankie, the “mother” (for lack of a better term) of the group who enjoys having fun but isn’t afraid to put her foot down. Eduardo; a large purple hairy imaginary friend who is strong and has horns; Wilt, a tall red basketball player with a lazy eye and an amputated arm after an accident that haunts his past; Coco, a bird that drops Easter eggs with useful things inside that can only say coco; and Mr. Herriman, an old wound-up imaginary friend to the owner of Fosters that is a dressed up rabbit. He is the imaginary friend of the founder of the foster home. Fosters is available on Netflix.
3. Dexter
Now we take a turn to the less humorous shows. Dexter is a blood spatter analyst with a dark passenger. This dark passenger makes him kill people, but thanks to his dad Harry, he has a code – to only kill killers. He is constantly trying new targets to kill all while keeping it a secret from his employers and sister Debra. Dexter is available on Netflix.
2. The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is just what it sounds like; it’s about the world getting overrun by zombies and a group of survivors just trying not to die. But is it the zombies or the living that they have to worry about? The group is constantly facing problems from attacks from both walkers and humans. In this show you never know who is going to die next. Will it be a minor side character or the ringleader? One thing is for sure: the writers are not afraid to kill off anybody. The Walking Dead is available on Netflix.
1.   Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad is a story of an over-qualified high school chemistry teacher Walter White, later known as Heisenberg, getting lung cancer. In a valiant effort to make sure his wife Skyler, his son Walt Jr. and his child on the way have money after he is gone, he turns to making meth. His brother-in-law Hank is a DEA agent and offers Walter a chance to go on a ride along for a meth lab bust. What Hank doesn’t know is that Walter is actually scoping out a meth lab so he knows how to make his own. In this process he realizes that one of his former students, Jesse Pinkman, got away from that lab he scoped out. He follows Jesse back to his house and proposes that they will make the purest meth in New Mexico. Throughout this show every character experiences drastic changes, from Walt all the way to Hank’s wife Marie. There are hardly any characters that remain the same as the beginning of the story. Breaking Bad is available on Netflix.
