Starring the wonderful (and gorgeous) Cillian Murphy as the leader of the Peaky Blinders, the real-life gangsters of early 1900’s Birmingham. It’s an action-packed show with lots of exciting scenes that leave you wanting more! With only 6 episodes per series it’s a pretty easy show to binge watch; it helps that it’s just soo addictive!
It’s not just full of good-looking Brummy blokes in sharp suits though. Oh no. This show is full of jaw-dropping twists and fantastic writing. Everyone in this show is amazing, especially Cillian (although he’s brilliant in everything)!
Skins is probably one of my favourite shows. It’s a coming-of-age teen show that features sex, drugs, love, fall outs, death, you name it. Mental health is also heavily featured in the show. It shows the real struggles that teenagers go through.
A U.S version was made but cancelled after one season because it was too much for the U.S audience. It was rubbish anyway, nothing like the original UK version.
The show follows three different generations of teens throughout their two years at college in Bristol, South West England. There are 7 seasons all together, 2 per generation and a final 6 episode season catching up with 3 of the main characters a few years after leaving college.
It’s funny and heart-breaking. Such a popular show when it was first released and still just as popular now with new generations of teens. I really recommend you watch it. And all episodes are on both UK and US Netflix.
3. That 70’s Show
I LOVE the 70’s. 70’s fashion, music, movies. So when I discovered That 70’s Show I was shook. It’s a sitcom following 6 teenagers throughout the last 3 years of the 70’s. Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis) is honestly one of my favourite TV characters ever.
The show follows of Eric Foreman (Topher Grace), Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), Steven Hyde (Danny Masterton), Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon), Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis) and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama).
The show is hilarious and I’ve watched it so many times I practically know it off by heart. Plus the fashion makes my little fashion-loving heart swell with joy and love!!
4. Stranger Things
Now, I know that everyone and their Mothers have seen Stranger Things. But, there is a good reason for that… It’s so good! It’s a sci-fi fantasy show featuring the wonderful Winona Ryder. I’m certain you’ve seen at least one clip or photo from the show. Maybe this one…
Yeah, I thought so. I love the drama and suspense in the show. With two season on Netflix and a third coming later in the year I can only hope that it keeps up with the dramatic scenes.
5. The Office U.S
Although this show is no longer on UK Netflix I still had to include it on this list because it’s one of, if not THE, best show I’ve ever watched. It’s hilarious and it’s filled with relatable characters.
Michael Scott (Steve Carell) and Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) make such a hilarious pair. Based on (and way better than) the UK version written and starring Ricky Gervais, this show is non stop laughs. And I know most of you would have already watched this, but if you haven’t then what are you doing? Get on that! Dwight Schrute is also one of my favourite TV characters ever along with Jackie Burkhart!
You at least have to watch this clip:
These are my favourite shows that are on Netflix right now. I know there are loads of shows on Netflix I haven’t watched yet or I’m in the middle of watching them, so maybe I’ll do another list in a few months when I have a chance to watch some more! Also feel free to recommend me some shows and I’ll for sure check them out!
Thanks for reading!
