So you’re stuck in bed with a flare and you find yourself with nothing do, so you begin to scroll through Netflix. You start with the categories and then just end up casually scrolling through the endless lists of suggested this and suggested that. Too tired to spend hours looking for a good show? You’re in the right place.
I am what they call a Professional when it comes to watching of the Netflix and I am here to provide you with extra special Netflixing advice. Here’s my top ten favourite Netflix shows you could give a go!
(Not in order of awesomeness)
1.Sons of Anarchy
If you happen to be into a little gore, some crime and mystery and a whole lot of family biker drama then this show is perfect for you! With a healthy amount of binge worthy episodes, I spent a heck of a lot of time shoving as many SOA episodes as possible into one day. Not entirely healthy but I was hooked from the very first episode, what can I say?
In North California, young Jax Teller and his motorcycle club try to protect their hometown from drug dealers and rapacious developers while running guns them selves.
2. Peaky Blinders
Setting the scene in the 1919’s, this drama follows a ruthless Birmingham gang by the name of ‘Peaky Blinder’s’ who thrive in the aftermath of the great war when dealing with underworld gambling, weapons trade and drugs.
One of my all time favourites, taking a step out of the classic vampires and werewolf’s scenario. This show doesn’t have many episodes in each season, however the actually length of each episode is longer than the average shows anyway. Again, this was a series I couldn’t stop watching until I had completely finished. With plenty of family drama, a view sad moments and a whole lots of booze, drugs and guns, I promise this is one to watch.
3. Stranger Things
If you haven’t already watched this then you’re seriously missing out. Taking the internet by storm, a boy vanishes without trace and cannot be found. Those who know him, 3 newbie teenagers (if that) set out to find him, accidently uncovering top government secrets and supernatural forces along the way.
Full of scare jumps, humour and even a little bit of romance, Stranger Things is my all time favourite show, like ever. With the second season released a matter of weeks ago, it’s the perfect time to become a obsessed fan too. You think I’m kidding when I say obsessed? I’m not. I’m really not.
If you’re too fatigued to really concentrate or you don’t want to spend your resting time worrying about the next jump scare, Heartland is perfect for you. Oh, and a fan of horses too.
Featuring a young girl with a gift for horses, you follow Amy through a good 10 seasons of her life. Focusing on rescuing horses in favour of her deceased mother, light hearted humour, a little bit of drama and a whole lot of L-O-V-E is what this show is all about.
Being a huge fan of the Canadian produced show, I have rewatched this series about 4 times. When I’m not feeling great, I can count on this feel good show to entertain me and make me smile. This is right at the top of my favourite shows list.
5. Bates Motel
One of the most interesting and gripping shows I have ever watched, Bates Motel shows you the twisted unravelling of Norman Bates mind. This show doesn’t require too much concentration, however it is extremely intriguing and I guarantee you wont be able to peel your eyes of the screen.
Filled with murder, insanity and a sprinkle of love, Bates Motel is certainly a binge worthy show. Oh, and it also spreads some well deserved awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis warriors among the chronic illness community. Bates Motel is a must.
Turning to a completely different genre, Reign is a brilliant TV show educating and entertaining you on the complex life of Mary Queen of Scots. If you’re not a history geek like myself, then the messy love scenes and the tragic love stories should be enough to excite you. If that doesn’t do it, then I’m pleased to announce that the gory scenes, intense plots and gripping story lines should. A real good series to curl up in a blanket to watch.
7. Prison Break
Another exciting and binge worthy show, genius and little brother Michael plans to break out his brother from one of America’s most secure prisons in hope of saving him from the death penalty. Exciting every step of the way, Prison Break is a easy show to watch while not being bored or over loaded with information. How far is Michael willing to go for his guilty/ not guilty crime driven brother?
8. The Vampire Diaries/ The Originals
After all, I am a fantasy struck teenage girl. TVD follows the Salvatore 200 year old brothers, Stefan and Damon. In hope of saving himself, Stephen falls in love with a human (the brothers being the vampires). As each season passes a part of their life, friends change, problems occur, love happens and mysterious creatures are found.
A brilliant show for the romantic and fantasy driven, I recommend this show 100%. Filled with excitement and lots of gore too, it’s the ideal show to watch while trying to save some energy. I promise it’s nothing like Twilight.
The Originals is a follow on series of some side characters known as the Originals and how their story began. Again, I really do recommend this show as it’s just as good as TVD. Filled with sibling drama and lots of gore, The Originals is yet another no brainer.
Teenwolf is ideal if you’re a fantasy fan and loves a bit of horror. Following the life of recently turned Scott and his best friend Stiles, the two and the rest of the gang defend their home town and the people they love. There is nothing cheesy about this show, in actual fact a lot of the content is quite scary and shocking to watch. 110% worth the time to sit down and watch; one of my all time favourite TV series.
10. Falling Skies
My mum actually recommend this show to me after a bad flare up and I don’t regret a single minute of time spent watching it. After a master race take over earth, Tom and the survivors must deal with the death of their loved ones, and fight in their honour to regain the home they once had. Filled with action, gore, death and romance, this show made it on my list for the exciting and gripping plot that twists and turns all the way through the series. If you haven’t already, you must give this show a watch!
