Hi everyone! It’s a new year, and we’ve been plunged back into lockdown, which means one thing….. another Netflix favourites post! I know we’re not all the way through the month yet, but being off work means I can binge watch so many shows on Netflix, and I’ve discovered a few new things recently so I thought why not share them with you all!?
Firstly, if you have not jumped on the Bridgerton hype, you are definitely in the minority. Everyone and their mum’s have been talking about this show, and it did not disappoint! I finished this within 24 hours, and as soon as I finished it I wanted to start it again. This show ticks so many boxes – it’s funny, it’s got a captivating storyline and the diversity of the actors is brilliant. Definitely give it a watch if you haven’t already. It has a Gossip Girl type element to it which I really enjoyed, but that isn’t the main story line.
Speaking of Gossip Girl, I was onto season 6 of re-watching it for the millionth time, however Netflix has decided to remove it so I can’t finish it. This is one of my favourite shows so I will likely track down the boxset of it soon!
I used to watch this back in the day, so I decided to start it from the beginning again and I fell in love. I had only previously seen a few seasons of this show so it was really nice to see how it ended. It’s such an easy thing to watch while you’re getting ready or doing other things, and I find the characters are all accessible and easy to relate to.
Once Upon a Time
This is a very new discovery, and I’m currently only a few episodes into it. After finishing Bridgerton, I needed another show to binge watch and I had seen this on my Netflix suggestions for ages now. It looked like it would be right up my street so I don’t know why I hadn’t started it sooner, but I’m glad I have because it really is my cup of tea! It’s the perfect mix of fairytale mixed with the seriousness of modern day, and so far I’m really loving the story line.
It has actually taken me until this Christmas to finally watch the new Grinch movie, and it definitely did not disappoint. I love the Jim Carey Grinch, so I think I was just a bit sceptical as to whether this version could compete. I’ve really enjoyed watching this over the past month, and I have actually watched it quite a few times now.
An absolute classic film I used to LOVE as a child is Annie. I was so happy when I discovered it was on Netflix and I just had to watch it. It’s such a good film, and I love the musical numbers in it! Definitely a must-see if you haven’t already!
What have you been enjoying on Netflix recently?
Until next time.
