Must watch series on Netflix

Must watch series on Netflix

I’ve been seriously loving a lot of series on Netflix recently, and I love posts like this because I’m always on the look out for new shows to watch. So, I thought I’d share what I’m loving at the moment. I mean, with exams coming up you need something to help you procrastinate right? (Speaking of which.. would anyone be interested in a revision tips post?)

First up, is Game of Thrones. Now I know that literally 90% of the population is already obsessed with Games of Thrones and I am literally the last person on this band wagon. But, I was one of the 10% until about a month ago that thought it was going to be boring. I was really bored one Friday and decided to give it a shot, and honestly, what was I thinking? I am loving it. So I’m talking to the others that are in that 10% that haven’t watched it or don’t want to, because you should really really watch it.

Next is Riverdale. I wasn’t convinced at all by Riverdale at first. I watched the first ten minutes and turned it off because it was so cringey. But then my brother told me he’d watched them all and that he was loving them. So I gave it another chance and actually, cringeyness aside, it’s actually quite gripping, I’m now on episode six and I’m really enjoying it. If you’re in high school then this is probably your kind of show, it’s pretty good.

Stranger Things. Have I got to say anymore? Once again, I was pretty late with this one. I only watched Stranger Things a couple of months ago – but I’ll put it this way, I watched the whole series in one weekend. I really didn’t think it was going to be my thing, I’d heard it was about aliens and the paranormal and was about a bunch of kids and I just thought, no. In reality though, it’s a hell of a lot more interesting than it sounds and I cannot wait for halloween so I can watch season two!!

Next is Fresh Meat. Fresh Meat is an English thing so if you’re from elsewhere you might not have heard of it. It’s kind of interesting though if you’d like a more realistic idea of what life is like in England – because we definitely don’t all wear tweed, read Sherlock and worship the Queen (is that treason? can I get done for that?) But it’s genuinely a really really funny show and it’s pretty relatable if you’re young, or maybe even if you’re older – it might bring back good memories, who knows. There’s five series I think, they brought out the last and what I believe to be final series this time last year, but they’re all really worth the watch. Fresh Meat is that show that I go back and watch an episode of when I’m feeling down, I definitely recommend.

In hindsight I’m realising that The Crown should really have been at the top of my list, as honestly, it’s probably my favourite. I didn’t have a lot of hope for The Crown really, I half expected it to be a show that Netflix had just thrown a load of money at but made a crap job of, but oh my God I’ve never been so happy to admit that I was wrong! I really like history, especially anything about the monarchy, so really, it would’ve been hard for me not to love it. So if you’re into history then you should definitely check this out. The acting is all so freaking good and I feel like they’ve got everything spot on. The Crown also got a ten out of ten rating from my Nan (which means a lot, trust me) and she lived through all that history, so if she rates it, it must be pretty decent.

Friday Night Dinner is pretty different to all the other shows I’ve mentioned. Like Fresh Meat it was on Channel four and it’s another UK show, but it’s all up on Netflix. It’s a comedy about a Jewish family eating dinner on a Friday night. Which sounds bloody awful. But if you have a family (which I’m guessing most people do) and especially if you have siblings, then it’s really relatable and really funny. I always watch this show with my brother, and I really imagine it’s probably what my brother and I will be like when we’re older and pop in for dinner with our parents. It’s just a really light and funny show, it takes no thinking, it’s just pure mind-numbing funny-ness.

Lastly, you need to watch Orange is the New Black before the next season comes out in June. I’m pretty sure, like Game of Thrones and Stranger Things, you’ll have heard of Orange is the New Black, so if you haven’t watched it yet, I’m not sure what you think you’re playing at but you better get on it. OITNB is just another really funny show, but at the same time it’s got that gripping I-can’t-stop-watching thing that shows like Stranger Things have. And season four ended on the biggest cliffhanger ever, so you’ve got to watch them all before season five comes out to avoid spoilers.

Let me know if you can recommend any other shows that I’ve not mentioned, because I’m going to need something else to watch when I finish Riverdale and Game of Thrones. Also, if you’ve watched Orange is the New Black or Stranger Things then comment down below your theories, I love hearing peoples theories!!! Thank you so much for reading and make sure you follow my blog to see more posts from me!

    I literally stopped watching an episode last night and I went to put it on not realising I’d just finished it, Do you know when the next episodes will be out? I’m not sure on the stranger thing.. I like the girly shows like gossip girl and pretty little liars but I need to find something new to watch so I might give it a try!
