I have been binging so much content on Netflix because of exam stress that I decided I should share my favourites so you have something new (or old!) to (re)watch once you are done with your exams (or during to de-stress!). Enjoy!
- Grace & Frankie
This one I have just begun after re-watching TBBT for the 4th time (sorry not sorry). I like how it feels like it is Modern Family but just based on the lives of two 70-year-old women. Pros: There’s 7 seasons! Cons: You have to get used to it in the beginning but after that, it’s smooth sailing! (I’m still on season 2 so don’t come for me if it gets bad after that).
I would rate it a solid 7.5/10.
2. Sweet Magnolias
This Netflix original is just amazing. I love stories set in small towns (that don’t sugarcoat stuff!) and Sweet Magnolias checks all my boxes. According to Netflix “Lifelong friends lift each other up as they juggle relationships, family and careers in the small Southern town of Serenity.”, but honestly this description does not do it justice at all!
I would rate this a 10/10.
This show has six seasons and is incredibly easy to binge-watch. The plot is funny, the characters are hilariously amazing and the concept is actually very cool. You rarely see scenes outside the store and yet you don’t feel like you’re missing any of the back story.
I would rate this one an 8.5/10.
4. Murder Mystery 2
Following the first Murder Mystery movie, this sequel comes in hot with a brand new adventure for my two absolute favorite actors. The plot might not be groundbreaking but it is honestly a good and easy watch, especially because my Greek goddess Jennifer is in it!
I would rate this movie an 8/10.
5. Firefly Lane
According to Google, Firefly Lane is about “Tully and Kate meet as young girls on Firefly Lane and become inseparable friends throughout 30 years of ups and downs”, but honestly it is so much more! There’s drama, there is pain, there are wonderfully wholesome moments and others that will make you furious. Inspired by true events, this show is no one to miss!
I would rate this a 9/10.
