Netflix TV series aren’t in short demand, that’s for sure. Everyone seems to be jumping onto the ‘series hype’, and we’re not surprised considering that there is so many of them!
Unlike our friends across the pond who (lets face it, Netflix prefer), we don’t have the luxury of finding almost every TV series ever created on Netflix. In fact, it’s often quite hard to find a decent show that you haven’t already seen 5 years ago.
If you’re really struggling for things to watch, are looking to watch something different or just have a whole weekend to spare, these Netflix TV series are bound to serve you well!
Pretty Little Liars
What sort of Netflix post would be complete without a mention of PLL?
Just to give a brief run-down of the story, the series is about a group of friends that are being tormented by ‘A’ – someone that’s identity was revealed only last year.
I’ve been watching Pretty Little Liars since it started and my God, it’s been a long 5 years. Although terribly frustrating and a number of times where I think “I CAN’T DO THIS ANYMORE”, I’m so glad I stuck with it.
Orange Is The New Black
Orange is the New Black has to be given a spot on my all time favourite Netflix TV series just because of how quickly I managed to get through the first 2 series.
OITNB is a series about a women’s prison – sounds interesting but it gets much better. Not only does it follow the story of Piper, a new inmate, but you also get to know the people in prison with her, gradually learning their story throughout the series.
All in all, I’d say I gave about a week where I was dedicated to each season. It became so addicting that I think I managed one night to watch 7 episodes one after the other, so it’s definitely one worth mentioning!
One of the first Netflix TV series I ever watched was Prison Break and I always find myself coming back to it (mainly because Wentworth Miller is an absolute dream, but the story line is amazing too).
As obvious as it might sound, the series is based around trying to break out of a prison; well, at least the first season is.
Even though it’s one of my favourite series of all time, I really don’t rate the later seasons. For me, season one was incredible, season 2 was good and the others weren’t necessarily worth watching, but they’re a good way to fill time (who wouldn’t want to look at Wentworth for that long?).
My love for Gossip Girl is well documented on this blog, and I mentioned in our Organisational Tips post that it wasn’t my greatest of ideas to watch the entire TV series whilst I was doing my GCSE’s. I passed them all, so I still stand my decision that it wasn’t a bad choice to make!
The typical ‘girly girl’ in me is satisfied with every part of this Netflix TV series as it follows my ultimate dream: be rich, living in NYC with enviably long, blonde hair. Could you think of anything better?
There are 6 seasons in total and I was actually really lost when it ended. “Could xx really be Gossip Girl?”, “BUT CHUCK AND BLAIR” and “What am I going to do with my life now?” are just a few examples.
