With the weather being the way it is now, it’s so much easier to curl up in bed and log into Netflix. Especially now that I’m not back in work until after Christmas! I watch Netflix every single week thanks to my wonderful sister for letting me use her account. I even watch it on my phone sometimes, which I find is so much more relaxing. So if you’re used to watching Netflix on your laptop, give watching it on your phone a try too. You can also download episodes to watch on the way to work (another thing I do) or watch while you’re at the gym – which I’ve never thought of doing until now actually. There are just so many ways to watch comfortably and so many different programmes to indulge in too.
In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing my top Netflix series with you. Some of them I have only started recently. As recently as today for one of them! Others I have been watching for weeks or even months now. I know that we’ve all logged into Netflix, scrolled for at least 30 minutes and then decided that there is nothing we want to watch. So hopefully this will guide you into actually using Netflix for what it’s for instead of just browsing everything it has to offer.
I think it’s pretty obvious that Riverdale is going to be top of my list. I have been loving Riverdale since it was first released and I’ve written a post about it on this blog before, which you can read here. Season two of Riverdale has been a little bit up and down. There has been a lot going on, lots of new characters and lots of interesting relationships being explored between existing characters. I must say that there has also been some very amateur plotting. I won’t go into detail now, as I’ll probably write a full review of the second season once it’s finished. However, I have still found myself going back to it every single week and for that reason, along with Cheryl and Veronica’s outfits every week, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to watch. If you like dark, twisted secondary school drama (who doesn’t?) then you’ll love this.
Next up on my list is none other than Louis Theroux. They have Louis Theroux on Netflix guys and it has just made my life. I only started watching good old Louis a couple of months ago, so I am pretty late. However, I just find him so likeable and so honest with his documentaries. He asks all of the questions you want to ask, but probably shouldn’t, yet somehow he gets away with it. Type in Louis Theroux on Netflix and there are so many episodes to watch. They have his Weird Weekends series, LA Stories series, one he did about life after having a brain injury. I mean what more could you need.
Can’t Pay We’ll Take It Away is one of my weird little obsessions. I find it fascinating how people react to debt. There are some people who immediately become very distressed and it’s literally gut wrenching. I watched an episode once where a woman was getting evicted and had no clue where her and her children were going to be staying that night. She worked shifts at Wilko to support her and her son and that was her only income. She didn’t have a single family member in the country that she could call either. But not everybody on the show has a story like this. Other people become volatile, shout in denial, become violent. I watched one where the debtors threatened to set a bomb off on the officers. I just find it really interesting.
