I hope you all are inside staying warm & off the icy roads. Oh, how I love living in Houston where the weather drops and the whole city shuts down. Schools canceled, jobs closed, freeways closed off. Better to be safe than sorry! Us Texans don’t know how to act in cold weather lol. Many of us are home from our jobs & school today so I thought I would share some of my favorite Netflix shows!
I really really love a good drama show that involves romance. I’ll never pass up a show that can make me laugh. I am sooo not into anything that has to do with horror so if you’re into shows like that, I’m not the girl for recommendations. The top four shows are definitely my favorite! But every show on this list is different from the rest!
Greys Anatomy – If you follow me on twitter or FB then you knooowww I am a HUGE Grey’s fan. I started watching this show when I was in MIDDLE SCHOOL (trying to not feel old over here). I stopped watching it when I got older bc life. Rewatched it from the beginning in college, I’m not caught up with whats on TV & loving every minute of it. But guess what?? That still wasn’t enough LOL I am now once again rewatching it from the very beginning bc you can never have too much McDreamy. This is hands down one of my favorite shows ever. If you love a good drama filled show with a whole lot of tears & romance then this is for you!
Friends – Such a classic. I love love love Friends. I watch this show almost every day. I love to watch this after a long day to help me relax. This show is full of good laughs! Idk anyone who doesn’t like Friends. Best show ever. #theywereonabreak
Gossip Girl – So sad this show is over!! I really want more. This is yet again a drama filled show about the Upper East Side privileged students who live amazing lives. No secret is kept in this friend group thanks to the mysterious “Gossip Girl”.
Scandal – Clearly I love drama shows lol. Scandal is oh so good. It is an Americal political thriller full of scandals with the leading role being an incredibly powerful woman who runs The White House without being President.
Girlboss – OMG if you read the book then you must watch the show! I am dying for season 2 to come out. It is such a cute & inspiring show about a young girl who is lost in the world finding her path. She finally gets what she wants bc she works hard for it. I totally recommend especially to girls out there who are feeling lost.
House Of Cards – Another Americal political show full of drama, lies & scandals in The White House. This is about a Democrat from the South who works his way up to the top of being President. There is a lot of cheating & betrayal that makes you want to watch more. I’m not sure how this show will be now that the character who plays the leading role is getting kicked off the show but we shall see.
Queen of the South – Man oh man is this show GOOOD. I am actually watching this show live on TV but this is a good series to start if you’re looking! It’s pretty new so there aren’t too many seasons to catch up on. This show is about a powerful woman who is forced to make a life in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is murdered in Mexico. She quickly learns the game and makes her way to the top.
The Crown – Okay I have mixed emotions about this show. I want to love it but sometimes it’s just TOO slow for me. Season 2 is now out on Netflix & I still haven’t finished it because I find myself bored or even confused sometimes lol. Season 1 was good though. If you want to learn more about the Queen & her story then I recommend. You may like it more than I do!
New Girl – Another classic! This show reminds me of Friends just a bit. It’s that good, funny American show you can have on in the background while cleaning or browsing the web. This is a show about a bubbly teacher who catches her boyfriend with another woman, she moves into a loft with 3 other men & the rest is history.
Gilmore Girls – Looovee this show! Another show I started watching when I was so much younger. This show really hits home because it reminds me of my mom & I. This show is about a mother-daughter relationship & their everyday life in a small town. They recently made a new season after being off the air for years. I’m not toooo crazy about their newest episodes but that still couldn’t stop me from watching.
That 70’s Show – This is a really funny show about 6 teenagers everyday lives while living in the 70s. Loved this show then, still love it now.
Bates Motel – Bates Motel is probably the closest I’ll ever get to watching something “scary” LOL. This is a prequel to the movie “Physco” which I actually never saw & probably should. This show is a portrayal of how a young boy psyche unravels through his teenage years.
Fuller House – I grew up watching Full House so when Netflix came out with Fuller House, I was ecstatic! This is obviously not as amazing as Full House but it’s still such a cute show about a family who is literally living in a fuller house.
Law & Order SVU – Who doesn’t love trying to solve a crime? There are so many Law & Orders but I only watch SVU. I’m not sure what it is about it but I love it. This is a show about New York Detectives who are dedicated to solving everyday crimes with a whole lot of plot twists.
Shows on my list I plan to watch :
The Office – I know, I know. How have I not started this show? I’ve seen clips here & there but never even a full episode. I’m excited to one day start this show that looks hilarious!
Parks & Recreation – Another funny looking show I’m excited to start!
Haters Back Off – LOL don’t judge me for wanting to watch this. I am s huge youtuber & I watch her Youtube videos so I’d like to see what her show is all about?
Black Mirror – This is a show everyone is talking about so I’m going to give it a try!
Grace & Frankie – I saw the trailer for this just last night & it looks so cute!! Have any of you seen it!?
Planet Earth – This looks extremely interesting & I just know I’ll learn a thing or two so why not!
Lovesick – I know literally zero details about this show but it’s on my list. I think the pink graphic of the show is what reeled me in hahaha
Pretty Little Liars – *sigh* I used to be a huge PLL fan when I was in HS & even in my early college days but it honestly just became too much. I couldn’t keep up so I stopped watching. I really want to watch it from beginning to end & see if I can figure out who “A” is because I still dk LOL, do you??
The End of the F***ing World – Another show I’m not sure why is on my list because I again know zero details on what this show is about!
World War II in Colour – I love history especially on WW2! Excited to see what this is all about!
Brain Games – This show is simply on my list because I’m hoping whatever “brain games” they have will make me smarter.
Conspiracies – OMG I live for conspiracies!! Anyone else?? I’m afraid to start because I’ll always want to know more.
I hope you all enjoyed some of my favorite shows on Netflix & what I’m thinking about getting into. I’d love to hear some of your reccomedations! Do you watch any of the shows I watch? Comment down below!
