I know Saturday isn’t usually on my blogging schedule, but here’s a special one for those of you planning to watch any Netflix this weekend… Enjoy!
I’m pretty sure Netflix is on everyone’s list of favourite things in life. It’s certainly on mine. I’ve been watching lots of it lately, as it’s usually my go-to way of procrastinating (please tell me I’m not alone here). Of course, it has my classic favourites but I’ve recently discovered some new shows which have got me totally hooked. SO, it’s Friday night – and without further ado, here are five of my UK Netflix show favourites…
1. Gossip Girl
This one is an old classic and a guilty pleasure. I absolutely love Blair Waldorf (I’m not sure I’ve met someone who doesn’t), but one of the best things about this show is the fashion. There’s so many different styles which you can see evolving as the characters grow up, and both Blair and Serena’s wardrobe is every girls heaven. It’s funny, witty and wonderfully written. A six season glimpse into the glamour and glitz of Manhattan’s elite.
Another series set in New York (actually I’ve just realized, I think a lot of these favourites are…). This one is all about high profile lawyers and the drama surrounding Mike Ross, a lawyer without a law degree. It’s more serious, yet still witty, with an intense new story line every season. If you’re up to date you’ll know that there are five seasons at the moment – but three are on Netflix to get you started if you haven’t already!
3. Brooklyn Nine Nine
I had no idea about this show until literally one month ago. And now I’m hooked. Seriously. I watched two twenty-two episode seasons in two weeks. The shows premise is about the 99th Precinct of the NYPD in Brooklyn, New York. It’s a crime sit-com which had me laughing every couple of minutes. Lovely light humour for a day when you just need a pick-me-up.
4. Pretty Little Liars
This is a show I’ve been a fan of ever since it first started. It revolves around four girls tormented by an anonymous bully named A. Although the show starts off a little girly, it gets more serious, more sinister and definitely more dangerous by first half of season six. The trick is to stick with it. On a side note, the fashion in this show is another noteworthy reason to add it to your ‘must watch’ list.
5. White Collar
Another recent discovery. Again about crime. This one is a lot more high profile as the title would suggest. However, the shows interesting twist is that a criminal is the one helping the FBI solve these crimes. It’s funny, yet still intense. Well worth a watch if you’re looking for something more mentally stimulating rather than something light. Also, Matt Bomer makes this show. Seriously, he’s perfect as the leading role.
