5 Netflix Shows to Binge Watch on the Subway

Towards the end of 2016, Netflix announced that users would be able to download select titles for offline viewing. Unfortunately, because there was limited selection available for download when the feature launched. But by mid-2017 it was a complete game-changer.

My daily commute is about an hour long each way, so Netflix has become a staple. While there is now a lot of Netflix content available to download for offline viewing, I still struggle to find my next binge after I run out of episodes. In case you’re in need of a new show to watch on the subway to and from work, here are a few of my favorites:

 

Shot in the Dark

I downloaded Shot in the Dark after a few failed attempts at finding a show I wanted to actually watch on my commute. Within the first few minutes I was interested, and I was hooked by the last few seconds of the initial episode. Shot in the Dark is a documentary-style series following three different freelance video journalism companies: LoudLabs, OnScene.TV, and RMG News. These stringers provide breaking news footage to various TV news networks in Los Angeles, California. It’s really interesting to see how a typical night of work plays out for a stringer, and how competitive the field is. I’m partial to RMG News, and assuming the series is renewed, I can’t wait for what’s to come in the second season. Watch now, or view the trailer below:
