Seeing as it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these Netflix posts, and I’ve started watching some new shows recently on Netflix I decided today was the day to do another one!
These are a few of my current favourite shows to watch on Netflix:
That 70s Show
I got addicted to this when my parents put it on a few months ago, and I’ve been binge watching it ever since. I will admit that I liked it a lot more in its early days and it got a bit silly towards the end, but it was still a very enjoyable show overall! My favourite character was Donna ( Laura Prepon, who plays Alex in OITNB) but I also really liked Jackie (Mila Kunis) and Michael (Ashton Kutcher). I also enjoyed the sense of humour in the first few seasons, particularly the jokes making fun of the seventies music and culture.
American Horror Story
I’ve only begun watching this show in the last two weeks, but I’m so addicted and I’m already finished Asylum (the second season). I’ve been told for months to watch it, and when I saw that Lady Gaga, – one of my absolute favourites – was going to be on the next season, I decided it was finally time. I found Asylum slightly too gruesome, and less driven by plot and likeable characters than Murder House was, but nonetheless I still enjoyed it!
Orange is the New Black
I was quite late to the bandwagon for this one – I only started after season 3 came out, thanks to being repeatedly told I should until I couldn’t keep not watching it (thanks Robyn and Daniel.) The first episodes I found hard to get into, probably due to the heavy focus on Piper, who I found really annoying, but towards the end of the first season I started to get really attached to some of the other characters and I suddenly found myself addicted. I really liked how the characters are so diverse, but are all seen by society as nothing more than criminals while the plot shows that they are people all the same, with feelings and ambitions. The characters I’m most attached to are Alex Vause, Sofia, Nikki and Morello. I can’t wait until the next season!
Once Upon a Time
I’m only at the very start of this series, so I’m not sure yet which characters I like most, but I do like the story and concept of the show already. It follows Emma Swan as she is drawn back into her past, when the son she gave up 10 years ago finds her and brings her to “Storybrook”, a town in which fairytales are believed to be real. Many of the characters have identities they have forgotten as a result of a curse, such as Snow White, The Evil Queen, Prince Charming, Rumplestiltskin and many more. I can’t wait to get further into this series!
This is what I’m enjoying on Netflix at the moment – let me know if you’re watching any of the same shows, or have any other recommendations! I’ve also been watching some films and things on Netflix recently so I might do another upcoming post about them in the future- keep an eye out if you want to read that!
