There is nothing better than cuddling under a warm blanket, with a bowl of popcorn and a mug of hot chocolate with your partner (or even alone) when the sun has decided not to shine as bright as it should. I am lucky enough to have access to Netflix as well as Amazon Prime. If you are looking for something to binge, here is a list of what I am currently watching. As a mandatory disclaimer, please note that what is available on Netflix and Amazon where I live may not be available to you where you live. So let’s get into that list:
The Office – Amazon Prime
I have heard about The Office for so many years and seen almost every meme on Instagram and I am so mad that this is the first time I am watching it. I am currently on Season 5 and tend to watch 5 – 6 episodes with my husband when he comes home from work. It is entertaining and stressful and definitely not how any office should function and yet I can almost guarantee that I will rewatch this series for many years to come.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine – Netflix
When FOX cancelled this show, the entire fanbase rallied together to get any network to bring this show back. It has since been picked up by NBC. While my Netflix only has the first 5 seasons available to watch, I usually enjoy rewatching the entire series because it is just that good. The series follows a group of NYPD officers and detectives each with their own lives and struggles and is definitely entertaining.
The Crown – Netflix
After watching Reign, I grew increasingly interested in programs based on royalty covering both fiction and non-fiction. We are all interested in the daily happenings of the royal family and the family dynamic. I stumbled across The Crown last year sometime and my sister-in-law and I are currently eagerly awaiting Season 3 which comes out November 17th.
Unbelievable – Netflix
Who doesn’t love to watch True Crime? Based on a true story about a serial rapist, I can guarantee that this series will leave you wanting more after each episode. It shows how society fails rape victims and how justice prevails as long as there is someone out there willing to make sure it gets served.
Whats in my Watch It Again List:
Tidying Up With Marie Kondo – Netflix
We all want to live in an organised space. Marie Kondo goes through all of the ways to declutter your home and to keep it organised in a way that is effective and manageable. After watching this, I used the KonMari method in my wardrobe and have been slowly implementing it in the other areas of my home.
Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things
As I have gotten older, I have found that there are a lot of things in my home that no longer serve a purpose, instead I am simply holding onto it so that I can say that I have this item, or that item. I started reading about minimalism and came across Matt D’Avella who coincidentally directed this particular documentary that I found on Netflix. If you are feeling unfulfilled with the things you have accumulated in life, I definitely recommend watching this documentary and even reading up on minimalism. It has definitely showed me an alternative to buying unnecessary goods.
Nailed It – Netflix
If you love sugar and spice, and everything nice but suck at baking, I would recommend this show. It is a game show where the contestants attempt to recreate fancy pastries and cakes and will have you laughing until your stomach hurts.
What’s on My List:
Inside Bills Brain – Netflix
I read a lot about entrepreneurs and habits they have. I came across this documentary about Bill Gates and immediately added it to my list to watch at my leisure. I am excited to watch this documentary soon!
The Pursuit of Happyness – Netflix
I watched this movie soon after it was released. With movies like this, I like to watch it at different times of my life because I always notice different lessons at different levels of self-awareness.
Undone – Amazon Prime
My husband and I are always looking for new interesting shows to watch. We recently came across this show while on the hunt and watched the trailer and it looked like something we would definitely watch. The main character somehow has a different relationship to time after being involved in a car accident. This is a show I am looking forward to watching!
Upcoming Shows I am Excited To Binge
The Crown – Netflix (17 November)
Having watched the first two seasons, I am excited to see the rest of the story play out. This is a show that I highly recommend watching!
El Camino (A Breaking Bad Movie) (11 October)
Having watched Breaking Bad, my husband and I are excited to watch the movie about the aftermath. It premieres today on Netflix and at selected cinemas. Let me know what you think about it. Are you a Breaking Bad fan?
I have a lot more on my list to watch but these are my top picks! Whats on your list?
