I’ve recently been chatting to people about the best shows to watch on Netflix, both online and in the office.
There’s been quite a few that I’ve started but haven’t managed to get past the first few episodes, even when they’re shows that other people have raved about. There are others though, that I’ve been totally addicted to, and have raced through the whole series in a week or two.
I thought I’d list my favourite binge-worthy shows to watch on Netflix in case you’re in need of a bit of inspiration…
Jessica Biel stars as a young mum who stabs a stranger to death on a family day out. A local detective tries to help her piece together memories to try and explain why she did what she did.
A bit weird in places but one you’ll want to keep watching to find out her motives. This series is one that kept us guessing until the end. We didn’t see the twist coming which makes a nice change.
We watched the whole series in a few days and would definitely recommend.
A crime drama following a couple of FBI agents who interview serial killers to try and understand their motives and set up serial killer profiling. Very creepy because it’s based on real serial killers, but you’ll want to keep watching to learn more about them.
The only bad part is that there’s only one series and ends without wrapping up the story but there is apparently another series coming soon.
How to get away with murder
I watched this on a recommendation from a much younger colleague and nearly stopped watching after the first couple of episodes as I thought it was another rubbish teen drama. I’m glad I persevered as I got a bit addicted!
A group of law students get involved in a murder and the series follows them and their law professor trying to piece together what happened and how to get away with it.
Completely far-fetched but still binge-worthy. I watched 3 series in two weeks and am waiting for the last series to make its way to Netflix!
This is not my usual kind of show, I don’t like sci-fi or anything remotely scary in so wasn’t really convinced at the beginning. However, I loved all the 80s references so stuck with it and was surprised that I really enjoyed it.
It is quite weird, and some bits can get confusing, but very addictive and with two series to watch it’s worth catching up on if you haven’t seen it.
If you’ve never seen Gilmore Girls, please watch it! I used to watch it in bed on Sunday mornings when I was at Uni but never saw the last couple of series so was really pleased when it popped up on Netflix.
It’s easy to watch but also addictive as you’ll get to love the characters and want to see how mother & daughter team Lorelai and Rory end up.
It’s very dated now but you’ll get nostalgic over some of the references, and if you grew up in the late 90s or early 00s you’ll probably laugh at some of the teen angst.
Have you seen any of these TV shows already? If so, which are your favourites? If you haven’t seen any of them, which do you think will become your next obsession?!
