During lockdown everyone binged Netflix, Disney+, Sky Movies, Amazon Prime, you name it! At this point, we don't even know what to watch any more! In this post, I have listed what I have watched on Netflix and hopefully, it will provide you with some inspiration.
1. Jane The Virgin - ★★★★★
After some easy-watching? Jane the Virgin is one of my favourite Netflix shows, it is based in Miami and shows the daily lives of an unconventional Latin-American family. It features Anthony Mendez as the narrator, arguably, some say this is the best part.
2. Suits - ★★★★★
Classy. Sassy. Hilarious. Suits follows the lives of (mostly) glamourous lawyers at a high-paying American Law firm. It has become a comfort show. Brace yourself for the drama, because there sure is a lot of it!
3. Dynasty - ★★★★
Atlanta based, this modernised reboot of the 1980s American Soap will make you laugh. It follows the lives of the extremely wealthy Carrington Family, particularly Fallon - a determined and highly successful female entrepreneur, and their family drama.
4. You - ★★★
I only gave this show 3 stars because I found it way too creepy and quite dark. It was weird though because some of it was actually very good. I am currently halfway through season 2 but gave up watching it.
5. Elite - ★★★★★
In an attempt to improve my Spanish, I watched this based on my teacher's recommendation. It was brilliant and it is not something that I would usually opt for. The show gave me a Hispanic Gossip Girl impression which is probably why I loved it. For the full experience, I highly recommend watching it in European Spanish.
6. Bodyguard - ★★★★
This 6 part BBC Drama presents the life of the Home Secretary position in the British Parliament and her protection officer. The show seems so real but is actually based on a fictional storyline. I would recommend it if you are into political dramas such as House of Cards.
7. Gossip Girl - ★★★★
Classic. If you haven't watched it, go watch it now (well, after reading this post). Set on the Upper East Side of New York City, from the high profile parties to the persistent feuds, this is a must-watch!
8. Gilmore Girls - ★★★★
The mother-daughter duo we all know and love! Gilmore Girls is a perfect and easy watch for those Autumn evenings by the fire with endless mugs of hot cocoa. It's quirkiness never fails to amuse me.
9. Girlboss - ★★★★
Looking to motivate yourself? Watch this one season special of the true story of how the million-dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal came about. The show really focuses on power and what you can achieve with self-belief and determination.
10. Friends - ★★★★★
If you haven't watched this yet then, WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN?! Friends is honestly the best. If I am having a bad or particularly stressful day (which let's be honest, we all have them from time to time), then whacking an episode (or 2, 3 or 4) of friends on is bound to make you feel happier and you will find yourself laughing along!
12. Selling Sunset ★★★★★
Probably my quickest binge-watch ever! I LOVED IT! If you like house programmes and reality-tv then this is the show for you! It filled the KUWTK void between seasons for me. Also, It was crazy seeing 'professional' grown women behaving like schoolgirls.
