Now that we’re pretty much into Winter, theres nothing better than shutting the curtains on the dark, cold weather outside, and getting cosy with a blanket, hot chocolate, some goodies and Netflix. I love binge watching series, and Netflix originals are some of my favourites. I’ve shortlisted my top shows so if you need some inspiration for what to watch then look no further!
If you’re one of the few who has yet to watch this, you might have wondered what on earth the Stranger Things hype all over your socials has been about. The second season has recently been released, and it was so eagerly anticipated that Netflix even published a countdown for its release! I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t
like love this show. From teens, to someone in their fifties (shout out to my Dad), I think that this really is a show that can entertain anyone. I love the 80’s vibes and its just totally different to any other show I’ve watched before.
Orange is the New Black
If you haven’t watched this yet you better get started, there are five seasons to catch up on. Every single episode has kept me hooked and the show addresses some really important and emotive issues.
I think that this particular Netflix original is maybe more of an acquired taste than the others. Its very high school drama-esque, so definitely isn’t for everyone, but I love it. Its one of my guilty pleasures but its just so easy to watch and full of suspense.
Making a Murderer
I’m one of those weirdos who finds murder documentaries extremely interesting. Any crime related show fascinates me and this one is shrouded in mystery and disbelief. Its gripping, emotive, and I’d really recommend it if you like this genre of television!
You have until February to catch up on the first season of this before the second arrives on your Netflix screen! This is another series that I’ve found is totally original and doesn’t compare it to anything I’ve seen before. I absolutely loved it though and would definitely recommend it!
Santa Clarita Diet
I haven’t seen much hype about this one, but I really think that it warrants it. I love Drew Barrymore so had to check it out when I saw it under my Netflix recommends. Its comical and so easy to watch that me and my partner sat and watched it in just two sittings!
13 Reasons Why
Last but not least. I feel like most people will have seen this too, there was a lot of hype around it earlier on in the year. Netflix has confirmed a second season is on the way in 2018 which I’m so excited for because I thought that the ending of season one was great!
I’ve watched a lot of Netflix recently, so if I’ve missed off any of your favourites please let me know what they are in the comments so I can check them out!
