For those of you that have seen my new 'Netflix & Chill' range you might have guessed that I'm a bit obsessed with my TV series.
I get attached to series like its my child or something. I'm a huge Netflix addict (I blame the British weather). The feeling of loss after a series finishes is all to familiar to me, I've been through it so many times and I mean, what on earth do you do with yourself now its over!? Oh my god and don't even get me started on them feels when your fave character dies... can't deal!
Since I consider myself to be a bit of a TV buff I'd like to share my favourite MUST WATCH
series with you all! Don't worry, NO SPOILERS
1. Making a Murderer
Unless you've been hiding in a hole for the past few weeks you will have definitely heard pretty much everyone talking about this. Maybe some of your friends have discovered their inner lawyer (guilty) and consider themselves an expert on the case presented in the 10 part documentary series. You've probably witnessed some pretty long Facebook and Reddit arguments on it too! Seriously, everyones on the case. The docu-series follows the trial of Steve Avery after a local photographer, Teresa Halbach goes missing.
I found this show to be so addictive, you really need to listen to every word said. It will make you so angry that you want to fly over to Manitowoc and kick someone. I'm now watching it for the second time round. I got so into the case that I've actually read all the transcripts and watched all the interviews from the case. To be honest this stuff has always fascinated me, I've always said I should have been a detective.
And yes, like everyone else, I have my own 'who dunnit' theory.
2. The Walking Dead
I really like horror movies and they don't (usually) scare me, but this series... scares me. However I do find I get scared over things other people don't... such as the Pretty Little Liars titles, I just can't watch the series because of that damn creepy singing!!
Anyway... back the TWD. The series follows a group of people trying to survive in a Zombie apocolyspe. I think you really get attached to certain characters in this series and the idea that any of them could be killed off at any moment fills me with dread, but it keeps me coming back for more every time! You will literally be screaming at your TV watching this.
I started watching this on a flight to Mexico so I was able to have a 10 hour binge watching sesh with the boyf! I was hooked immediately and I sort of didn't want the flight to end so I could keep watching it!!
3. Prison Break
So if Wentworth Miller isn't enough reason to watch Prison break maybe this will be. Its quite an oldie but wow does this keep you on the edge of your seat. You guessed it... the series is about a prison breakout. A man is wrongly convicted of a crime and this series follows the story of how his brother is trying to clear his name.
My mum actually talked me into watching this because I didn't really fancy it. After the first episode I was hooked. The love and utter HATRED you feel for some of the characters in this is unbelievable. Its got an extremely clever plot line (especially in the first series) that keeps you in constant suspense. I'm trying to get my boyfriend to watch it now but haven't succeeded yet!
4. Better call Saul
If you were a huge fan of Breaking Bad like me, this Netflix original is a must watch. It tells the back story of how Saul came to be a 'criminal' lawyer. It has quite a slow start but it picks up. I can't wait until its return! It also features the story of everyones favourite character from Breaking Bad, Mike!
5. Gossip Girl
This ones a bit of a guilty pleasure for me and I watched it purely just for the sake of watching something after 90210 ended.
Its one for the girls and I really enjoyed this series. Its definitely the odd one out from the list but if you like your girly series its a must watch. The plot follows the lives of 2 extremely glamorous, New York solicites played by Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. I really love those two so this was a plus. The fashion and hair throughout the series is inspiring, however I almosy bought a £600 coat that Blake Lively wore in an episode, it was gorgeous!
The storyline can get a bit silly and after the millionth 'best friend fall out scene' it can get a bit predictable but gets so much better as the series goes on. I'm contemplating watching it again now I know who Gossip Girl is, I'm wondering if it would change the whole story into something different a second time round!
Have fun watching, I hope this has inspired you into a Netflix binge!
