In today's post I wanted to share with my top five Netflix shoes that I have been binge watching during quarantine. My experience of lockdown was constantly working right through so when it was the weekend or I finished working during the day these were the shows that I watched and absolutely loved them all. I would highly recommend all five of these and are all highly-rated shows on Netflix and I absolutely loved them all and was hooked on them from the get go.
Dead To Me (2 Seasons)
Dead to me, is a dark comedy that is about a friendship that blossoms between Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini) following the loss of her husband who died during a hit and run murder. Jen learns a terrible secret that turns her world upside down.
This show came out last year and I absolutely loved it, it has very good reviews and I was so excited to watch it. I remember watching it over the weekend and I couldn't stop feeling so sorry for Jen as you follow her journey to find what happened to her husband but you go through all the emotions during it. Then season 2 came out May 8th 2020 during lock down and I couldn't have been happier, I thought it was even more brilliant that the first season. It is a lot darker than the first but very addictive as you learn more about the characters but their friendship is deeper and the traumas that bond loom larger. You go through all the emotions through both seasons as you learn of the struggles that they both face, the guilt, the forgiveness and most importantly grief. The plot twist keeps you gripped from start to end, I would 100% recommend this one.
Stranger Things (3 Seasons)
Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As loved ones and the local police search for answers they witness the extraordinary mysteries and the supernatural forces. It is ranked 3rd best TV show of the year. They have done three seasons which get better and better.
I absolutely love Stranger Things, I watched the first season as soon as it came out and was obsessed with it, I love it is set in the 1980's, the characters are great and I love the weird and wonderful things that happen in it. I finished watching it last summer when the third season came out and we are still waiting for season four but started to re watch it during lockdown and made me realise how good it is. I am sure you would have seen it or at least heard about it, it is so popular and very well written. It is probably one of my favourite Netflix Originals shows.
Locke and Key (One Season)
Locke and Key came out on Netflix at the beginning of February and it is an American horror that is based on a family who relocate to Matheson, Massachusetts after a sudden death. It is an adaptation of a dark comic book series by the same name.
It is based on a family trauma where the family move to a old house which turns out to be filled with demons and magical keys which are a very important part of the season. The story line is amazing, it has so many twists and turns and makes you want to keep watching it, the characters are all different and very interesting. Looking forward to when the second series comes out!
Next In Fashion (One Season)
Next In Fashion is hosted by the wonderful fashion icon Alexa Chung and Tan France from Queer Eye who I adore. Each episode has a different theme and it is filled with fashion designers who are all different to each other, at the beginning they are all work in pairs, they create and design together but as it gets towards the end and people unfortunately have to leave they end up working on their own. It is great and so easy to watch! It is filled with happiness and I absolutely would 100% recommend! You get to know the designers and you get to know their journey and it gets your creativity juices flowing!
I had been wanting to watch for a while and have just finished it and I absolutely loved it. It is all about three suburban Michigan mothers, two of whom are sisters, who are having a hard time trying to make ends meet. They are tired of everything taken away from then so they agree to carry out a local grocery store robbery. The three down-to-earth 'regular mums later find themselves fighting for their lives as they accidently butt-heads with the running's of a ruthless drug dealer.
This is a dark comedy but so easy to watch and very attention grabbing. It makes you laugh and cry at the same time and you feel do fall in love with the characters and get to understand their struggles in life. It is a definite one to watch when you have a glass a wine in your hand and endless snacks is a must.
I would love to know if you have any Netflix recommendations or what you are enjoying at the moment?
