1. Once Upon A Time

Fairy tale and modern life collide in this show that follows a young boy named Henry who is convinced all of the people in his town are actually storybook characters.

With the help of his biological mother, Henry tries to restore the belief of magic to his small town in order to save everyone from the curse of the evil queen.

If you like anything that has to do with fairy tales or Disney and lots of drama, give this show a try. Seasons 1-5 are on Netflix, and season 6 airs on ABC this September.

2. Parks and Recreation

This show is a political comedy that follows Leslie Knope, a member of the Parks and Recreation Department in Pawnee, Indiana, and her fight to make her town better.

With a crazy, hilarious cast that is hard not to love and an extreme amount of character development, there is absolutely nothing to hate. This show will leave you wishing that the real Parks and Recreation Department was this awesome.
