I hope you are all doing well in lockdown right now. It is a hard time for us all and i’m sure everything will be back to normal soon.
I understand it can be difficult to have your you time whilst caring for children, but, if you do get a moment one evening to yourself, here are some of my favourite series recommendations:
Sex Education (Netflix)
A group of high school teens giving advice on sex education. This had me belly laughing numerous of times. I can not wait for the next season! Every single actor plays their role so well. Honestly, for something light hearted, fun and easy to watch, this is your go to!
The Witcher (Netflix)
A similar vibe to Game of Thrones. A fantasy where you can switch off from the real world. Did I mention the eye candy?
Mind Hunter (Netflix)
Two guys interview famous serial killers in the hope to find psychological evidence to aid new murder cases. Very interesting as they are all based on true events.
Love Is Blind (Netflix)
Ok, so I first put this one and within ten minutes I was questioning my decision. Twenty minutes later I was still questioning myself but for some reason I just could not turn the program off. Before I knew it, I had completed the whole season. Crazy people decide to get engaged without even seeing each other. It is full of drama that leaves you wanting more.
Tiger King (Netflix)
Pure entertainment. Everyone has been talking about this. The life of an eccentric man caring for tigers. Watch his plot thicken to become the Tiger King and then come crashing down on him.
Fleabag (BBC iPlayer)
10/10. My favourite. I LOVED this! Super clever, witty with an abundance of adult humour. I had tears with laughter (which if you know me, is so hard to achieve with comedy programs). And then it was paired with the emotion of feeling so attached with the characters and their story. Oh, I just loved this. I don’t even need to tell you what it is about. Just go and watch it!
Good Morning America (Apple TV)
Good Morning America was a recent watch for me. I’m not the biggest Jenifer Aniston fan so I was a little hesitant to watch it. Anyway, she completely changed my opinion on her. The series took a while to get going but when it did, it really got going!
Little America (Apple TV)
Short and sweet. The most beautiful and simple life stories of people who immigrated to America. Very heartwarming before bed.
Normal People (BBC iPlayer)
ok, so you know before when I said Fleabag was my favourite? Well I may have lied. Normal People is. Oh my word. I read the book last year in record time. I could not put the book down. My dread was for this to become a TV Series and it came true.
I was very skeptical watching this. After being a huge fan of the book, I was concerned aspects of the book wouldn’t be shown in the same way. The program was very true to the book. Almost word for word.
I don’t want to spoil this for you. Just trust me, it starts of slow and quiet but, I can assure you, you will be in love.
A Swedish Thriller Drama about a terrorist plot. If you’re into Homeland, this may be a good program for you. My heart was in my throat a few times and the ending was not what I had expected at all. Definitely give this one a go.
I hope you found this useful and there were some series you have not come across before. Please comment below and tell me your favourite series right now!
