If there`s one monthly purchase that I can always justify, it`s my Netflix subscription. It`s like a Mecca for TV junkies and while most of my favourite TV shows are not available there (GoT, Supernatural or Teen Wolf to name a few), they still have a pretty badass selection. You can find a good variety of movies, from classics to romcoms and comedies. There are a few documentaries, but most important, lots of TV shows. And today, I`ll share my top 5, available to binge-watch all day/night long. There are a lot more, but at the moment, these are the closest to my heart.
1. Orange is the New Black
Netflix has some original series, but nothing as funny and addictive as this show. It`s about a spoiled woman who is sentenced to prison for a felony she did when she was younger. While Piper, the protagonist, is my least favourite character and I wish the show would go on without her, there are many characters you`ll fall in love with. Every episode is filled with the right amount of drama and humor and it will always leave you wanting for more. Season 3 was a bit weak in my opinion, but maybe I`m biased because I hate Piper and I think making her the next Walter White was a joke. Regardless, I still enjoyed some of the big stories, like the prison going private or the whole religious cult.
Speaking of Mr. White, you can watch all 5 season of Breaking Bad on Netflix. Now, this show was so advertised, I think you all heard about it. It`s about a chem teacher who teams up with a former student in order to prepare and sell meth. There are so many lessons you can learn from this show, it will definitely stir some emotions when you watch it. Acting is beyond amazing and all of the actors deserved their Emmy and other awards.
3. Pretty Little Liars
This may look like a typical teen show, but it`s filled with crimes, crazy stalkers and even a bit of paranormal. I won`t lie, after every episode I yell ,, I`m done with this shit“ because it gets so ridiculous, yet I always come back to it. And in a way that`s good, because no matter how mad it gets you, you want to know the key to the whole A mystery. Plus, if you are a hopeless romantic like I am, you`ll definitely find your OTP in here. I`m team Haleb all the way in case you were wondering, followed by Ezria. I don`t feel Spoby and I hate Emison, but please let’s not get into shipping wars.
4. Once Upon A Time
This is such an amazing show because all the stories you knew when you were little, come with a twist. For instance, the season when they revealed that Peter Pan was evil was my absolute favourite, it was something that I did not expect at all. The moral of the show is that good always wins though and redemption is possible for everyone.
5. The Office
The boss is an idiot and the staff keeps messing around. This is a brilliant comedy, filled with memorable moments, most of them involving Steven Carrel. If you need something to cheer you up after a hard day at work, this is definitely your show.
Like I said, there are many more, so I`ll make a quick list of my favourites, based on the genre.
- Teen Shows: Gossip Girl, 90210, Skins, Friday Night Lights
- Drama/ Crime: Sherlock, House, Dexter, Damages, Prison Break, Person of Interest
- SF: The Vampire Diaries, Merlin, Orphan Black, Heroes, Grimm, Buffy, Charmed, Doctor Who, Fringe, Hemlock Grove (I guess you can tell which one is my favourite genre:)) )
Well, guys, these are a few of my recommendations. I tried to include mainly shows that have all seasons uploaded, because there are a few like Suits or The Originals, that have only 1 or 2 seasons available. I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know what TV shows are you currently watching.
