Shows You Should Binge Watch On Netflix

Since I left university, I am well over my going out out days. I love going to the pub with friends and family to get merry, but I also very much enjoy being home and in my pjs by 10pm. Now that we are fully into the swing of winter (can you believe how cold it is?!), it is more than acceptable to change into my pyjamas as soon as I'm home from work. Yes that does mean that by 6pm I am ready for bed. Not only does this mean ultimate comfort, but it means I can fully enjoy nights in with my favourite winter foods, and indulge in one to many episodes of a box set snuggled on the sofa with James.

Panasonic got in contact with me asking if I would like to help promote one of their latest TV's the Ultra HD 4K TV Panasonic. I obviously jumped to this opportunity because I bloody love TV! For this post, I'm going to be talking about everything I've been binge watching on Netflix. Although Autumn/Winter TV schedule is always jam packed with top tv, think I'm A Celeb and X Factor, there is always time to squeeze in an episode or five of a netflix series.



Here are some series that I absolutely love on Netflix, and would definitely recommend you to watch! Also don't worry - no spoilers!!

Stranger Things

Now, let's be honest who hasn't seen Stranger Things? I'm pretty sure every man, wife, dog and cousin have seen and loved this series. A netflix original 80's inspired sci-fi drama, which involves extraordinary mysteries, supernatural forces and a tale of friendship and young love. I love everything about this show, from the moments that make you jump, to the moments you're laughing your head off at how hilarious the kids are. I absolutely loved season 2, and cannot decide which season I love most. If you haven't seen Stranger Things (which would be quite hard to belive), you're definitely missing out. 


Gilmore Girls

Another loved series by so so many and one that got me hooked in the first episode, despite being about 9 years late to the party. This series follows single mother Loreli, her daughter Rory and their journey of getting through life. This is one of those series where you are laughing and crying along with the characters. In this series, you get to watch Rory grow up through adolescence and into adulthood, everything from education, boyfriends and finding her career path. I find this series really relatable because nearly everything that Rory experienced, I have experienced. If you're looking for an easy lighthearted watch then this is for you!



How I Met Your Mother


Ahhhh How I Met Your Mother, my all time favourite series. You know that series that you can put on at any time and it will instantly make you feel at ease. This is the one for me. It used to be friends, but when James introduced HIMYM to me in 2015, my life literally changed. I have watched every single episode about 7 times each now and every time I still laugh and cry at the same moments. The plot of this series revolves around Ted Mosby, explaining to his children how he met their mother, telling stories along the way around friendships, previous relationships and career struggles. This series made me fall in love with Jason Segel more than ever and always has me continuously belly laughing. If you want a hilarious series that you can always go back to, this is the one for you!


Zumbo's Just Desserts

This is a programme that I think I saw Rhianna tweet about, and then noticed it on Netflix when myself and James were on the hunt for something to watch. We are hooked!! Imagine a combination of Masterchef and Cake Boss, sort of like Bake Off, but American and a lot more elaborate. We've only watched one episode of this so far, but we will definitely be watching more of it. I'd recommend it to anyone that loves cooking competition shows, very creative people and anyone that loves baking. 


Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares

And finally, one of my all time favourite shows. If you know me well, you'll know that I'm literally in love with Gordon Ramsey, Kitchen Nightmares is one of the best shows he has. If you haven't seen it before, Gordon visits kitchens around both UK and America that have been run into the ground and attempts to turn the business round. It is one of the funniest programmes as Gordon rips the living shit into people that are terrible at their jobs, using the most ridiculous insults. This is a programme that me and James will put on when we can't decide what to watch and it never fails to make us laugh (although i'm not really sure that is the premise, Sorry Gord).



I hope from this you've managed to find some new programmes to binge on over the festive period. I'd love to hear any recommendations you might have for me!

  15. I actually saw two episodes of Stranger Things with my friend before school ended. It was too scary for us but I can see why people really enjoy it! But I love Netflix and I love Riverdale—if you haven't seen it yet I recommend!

  20. I LOVE Stranger Things, it's flawless. I'm currently working my way through Breaking Bad which I'm a little bit obsessed with, since I didn't watch it when it was hyped up. Once I've finished I'll have to try one of your recommendations!

  24. I loved Zumbo's Just Desserts - it was filling a Bake Off filled gap in my life, so many of the contestants had such a sassy demeanour though! I can't wait til Stranger Things comes back, I'm debating rewatching it AGAIN, it's just so good!

  25. They usually have to shop it around to sell it. That's been my personal experience so far. I've never created content with a movie distribution deal in place. putlockers
