Favourite Netflix Series & Films*


For a university student, I might just spend too much time searching through Netflix to find something to watch while I procrastinate from the piles of work that I should probably be doing instead. But this doesn't stop me from getting through quite a selection of shows and films, while still getting all my work done of course.

I spend my time watching Netflix on my laptop, but sometimes a bigger screen makes the viewing experience that much more entertaining, such as the Oled Tv Panasonic. Alas while at uni I shall spend my time watching Netflix on my laptop tucked up in bed whenever I can.


Let's start with the series, shall we!

I do find myself turning away from the popular Netflix series that are tweeted about the most on Twitter time and time again. Quite a few of them I just can't get into like Stranger Things and You, I prefer lighter storylines. But nonetheless, I've gotten through my fair share of shows.

One of my favourites, that I can binge watch in a couple sittings, is A Series of Unfortunate Events. I never did read these in their book form when I was little, so I can't compare its accuracy of them, but I did thoroughly enjoy finding out what happens after the movie left it on such a cliff hanger. I definitely recommend giving this a go, it's only three seasons long so it's not even that difficult to get through, unlike some shows I just won't let myself get started on since I know I need to be doing work instead of watching an 8 season-long show.

Another binge-worthy series is Lost in Space. I think it's quite clear by now my love for outer space, so when this popped up on my recommendations I had to give it a go. And what can I say but I loved it! I must admit I could have really done with a season 2 for it, and I'm still hoping they'll be one soon, but even on its own, it's a great watch. Plus one of the main characters is a female astrophysicist, so it gets bonus points from me for that.

My final series is the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. To be honest I haven't actually finished this, since when it was aired I suddenly got piles and piles of university work loaded on me, and I just haven't got around to finishing it yet. But from the, half I did watch I really enjoyed it. I used to watch Sabrina the Teenage Witch when I was little, both the live action and the animation, so this more dark spin on it was a fresh view on it that I enjoyed watching.

As for films, I've watched more of those of the Netflix originals than I have the series but I'm going to keep it to my top three.

I don't think I could write a list of Netflix movies without mentioning this one. To All The Boys I Loved Before is definitely up there high in my favourites. As much an I don't tend to go with the flow and watch what Twitter says is good, this time I gave it a go. I was meaning to read this before watching but never got round to it, but if the book was as good as I found the movie I might give it a go at some point. Films for me tend to be more along the lines of cringy rom-coms since I watch them more often when my mood is down, and this one didn't disappoint. I might have already watched it more than once, but we shan't tell anyone that. I doubt any of you haven't watched this one but if you are one of those select few maybe watch it when you're free I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Another one that I've watched more than once is Step Sisters. Can we see a theme here with films with happy endings? I haven't heard that many people talk about this one on Twitter and I don't know why, since it's a good watch, and I do love a good comedy with romance thrown in there; is there any better of a combination for when you need cheering up, I think not.

I think my final favourite on here shall have to be an anime-inspired one, since when is it a post about what I watch without having some kind of anime or Korean drama in it. Bleach is based off the anime, which I never got round to finishing since there are so many episodes but it was one of the first series I watched along with Sailor Moon and Fairy Tail, so when I heard there was going to be a movie I was pretty happy. I know some people don't enjoy the live actions of anime, but this one is pretty good, and if you're up for the subtitles and maybe slightly cringy fight scenes I would definitely tell you to give it a watch at some point.

And there we have it, a total of six shows and films that rank high in my list of favourite things to watch. What are your favourite shows and films to watch on Netflix, I'm always looking for something new to spend my time procrastinating with.
