Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to watch TV. Whether that’s reality TV (KUWTK forever), crime tv shows, comedies, action-packed cliff hangers. I LOVE THEM ALL!! Netflix just so happens to host some of my favourite shows so I always find myself logging onto Netflix on my lunch breaks at work and any spare time I have!
Here’s just some of my all time fav’s to re-watch again and again:
JANE THE VIRGIN
I LOVE this show! It’s so different to any show I have ever watched! The writing is brilliant and purposely cheesy at times, but it just works! As you could guess by the tittle, the story line is initially about the main character, Jane, who is (you guest it) a virgin..but there is so much more to this programme, and it’s GRIPPING!
I wasn’t too sure about this programme when I first watched it (I can’t actually remember why) but I’m SO glad I kept watching! It’s such a twisted show, funny yet has the serious moments (and grim moments) you’d expect from a gripping thriller/gripping crime show! The show follows the life of Dexter Morgan who works at the Miami Police Department as a forensic technician who specialises in ‘blood’ but the show quickly turns dark and it’s a must watch!
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
MY GIRLS! I am obsessed with this show! I’ve watched it from day ONE and have kind of grown with the characters since watching it since I was about 15! (I am now nearly 23 and still sing along with the theme tune) The show initially was all based on and around the disappearance, and death, of four girls (Spencer, Aria, Hannah and Emily) friend, Alison DiLaurentis, but like many other tv shows, you soon realise that there is so much more going on in the town of Rosewood. It’s charming, stylish, twisted and, at times, a little crazy, but I still LOVE it! And with series 7 just realised on Netflix, I am cancelling ALL my plans for sure!
AMERICAN HORROR STORY
BOY oh boy. What can I even say about this show? It has to be known, I am a wuss when it comes to horror…seriously, WUSS. I hide away behind pillows and even watching a trailer for a horror movie can scar me for life and keep me awake all night. BUT, this show is one of the best shows I have ever watched. The acting in it is phenomenal. Evan Peters is simply brilliant in each of his roles (been a fan of his for years and years anyway) and Jessica Lange is such a brilliant actress. (TAKING A PHARAGRAPH OUT OF WIKIPEDIA AS MY DESCRIPTION WOULD BE WAY TOOOOO LONG AND CONFUSING)——
—‘Each season is conceived as a self-confessed miniseries following a disparate set of characters and settings, and a storyline with its own “beginning, middle, and end.” Some plot elements of each season are loosely inspired by true events.’—
Series one-MURDER HOUSE, Series two-ASYLUM, Series 3-COVERN, Series 4-FREAK SHOW, Series 5-HOTEL, Series 6-ROANOKE.
ITS ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA
One of the best comedies ever written in my eyes. The actors in the show aren’t just that, they created, written and produced the show. Which is probably why it’s so so messed up (in a good way)! The script is incredible and the cast just make it such a funny and awkward show to watch! The series follows “The Gang”, a group of five ‘underachievers’: Twin brother and sister Dennis and Deandra (Sweet Dee) Reynolds and their friends Charlie Kelly and Mac (real name Ronald McDonald) and from series 2, Danny DeVito plays the man who raised Dennis and Dee, Frank Reynolds. The all own an Irish bar called Paddy’s pub and every episode sees a new twisted goal that they’re trying to achieve. There is one where the gang are desperately trying to make money, Dennis is so fixed on trying to ‘pick up chicks’, Dee trying to become an actress, and one of my favourite shows see the gang go to their high school reunion thinking that they’re all really cool and have amazing lives. It’s just brilliant and a must watch for anyone that likes ‘black comeies’.
There are obviously SO many more TV shows that I never find myself being bored of..but I would need a whole day to write about each none and I’m way too lazy for that. (and that would make everyone fall asleep). These are only a few!
