My Netflix Faves

Hey lovelies, so it's safe to say Netflix is taking over the viewing world, and there's nothing I love more than finding a great series to snuggle up on a rainy afternoon and binge watch a few episodes, or find a great movie to get stuck into.

I must admit I have a really varied range of tastes when it comes to TV and film. One day you could see me watching a documentary on how the latest aircraft engines are made and next day I might be binging on a series about teenagers dancing for a place in an elite school, varied isn't it!! I thought I would give my top 10 series to watch  that I have been loving recently, but don't worry I have kept these all pretty mainstream so no random aircraft or dancing here.

There are no big spoiler reveals or anything here!

So have a nosey and find something new to enjoy

Peaky Blinders
Set after the War in 1919, Peaky Blinders is all about a gangster family in Birmingham who notoriously use razor blades in their peak caps, to deal with enemies just say. Between love, rivals, mafia and everything in between, its one of those shows that I will rewatch again and again.



Riverdale
This is a show based on the old Archie Comics, all about a group of high school students, seemingly in a beautiful quiet town, but what unfolds is murder, secrets, lies and lots of love to make it a little easier. Although it's into its third series and I have to admit a little far fetched now, I still can't help myself watching it. Definitely one to just sit and chill out to.

Girls Incarcerated
This is one of the rare finds, when looking through some suggested shows. All about young teen girls in a young prison in Madison USA, it shows how life can be when you don't follow the law. This was fab as it showed different sides to the girls and how they dealt with not being near family, new relationships and not getting their way 24/7



You
This is a real recent one for me, and from the 1st episode I was hooked. I binge watched this series over a day when my fybromyalgia was really bad and I was in bed. Starting off with a seemingly innocent encounter with two people, it all turns very very strange indeed. The stalker uses social media to really get into her head and I have to admit, I went from anger, to sadness to everything in between. If you love twists and turns definitely put this on your list.



Sex Education
Without a doubt one of the funniest shows in a while!! Otis the lead character is your typical boy with no girl experience type of character but the main difference is he has a sex therapist as a mum played by the amazing Gillian Anderson. Somehow it ends up with him trying to give sex advice and leads to some hilarious disasters.



Marie Kondo
If you haven't heard of this decluttering queen recently, you must have been living under a rock the past few months. Believing in the power of decluttering to enrich and fulfill your life, Marie joins families as they try and deal with different areas of their life and I have to admit the results are always amazing. From thanking your possessions and bringing all your clothes into one pile in one room it can definitely be a little overwhelming to begin with, but when you master her folding technique it's plain sailing after that. Needless to say I have been Marie Kondoing lots in the house.

The Crown
All based on the play "The Audience" it shows Queen Elizabeth the second, ascending to the throne at the age of 25 after the death of her father. Showing her relationships, political issues and lots of drama, I can't wait for the next series to be back this year.



Black Mirror
This is definitely a show that makes you think. All one off episodes so no need to worry about keeping up with story lines, Black Mirror bridges that gap between what is real life now and what could easily be real life through technologies new and old. Definitely one to watch to make you think about what could be real with just a few tweaks of technology.

Glow
This has to be one of the best underrated shows on Netflix. All based on the 80s glamorous ladies of wrestling.,it shows all the ups and downs they go through from personal relationships to producing a show when everything is against them. I adored this show and all the 80s glam helped!!


Friends
This is a show I go back to time and time again ever since it came onto Netflix. Group of friends, lots of coffee, lots of laughs and it's perfect to binge watch, what more do you need.


There you have it, my top ten series I have been loving recently.
Let me know what you have been loving.

Till next time lovelies
Keep smiling
Ali
