As much as I love Winter, cold days and dark nights make me want to stay in bed with Netflix all day. Plenty of my time at uni was spent doing so (when I definitely should have been working). I’ve watched so much Netflix at an alarming quick rate. Here are my 3 favourite shows of all time, and why you should definitely binge them over the Christmas break. Just don’t forget to revise as well if you have January exams!
1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a comedy, focusing on the detectives in New York’s 99th precinct. It revolves around Jake Peralta and his colleagues in the nine-nine, and is absolutely hilarious. B99 is my all time favourite show. There isn’t one episode that fails to make me laugh, and I’ve watched it over and over. It’s the perfect show to watch when you don’t want to concentrate – it’s easy to follow and each episode only lasts 20 minutes. I’m way too emotionally invested in it and the characters and I promise you will be too if you watch it. Plus, they’ve been given the go ahead for an eighth season, so if you start now you might catchup before that comes out.
2. Queer Eye
If you haven’t heard of Queer Eye you must have been living under a rock, because these 5 guys have shot to fame! But just in case you haven’t I’ll give you an outline.
Basically, Queer Eye follows the Fab Five across America to change the lives of a new ‘hero’ each week. The heroes are nominated by their family and friends for being particularly brave, selfless or just lovely people. It’s raw, funny and emotional, and you will definitely cry more than once.
3. The Good Place
Without a doubt one of the best shows I’ve ever watched, The Good Place follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) into the afterlife. She has to navigate the afterlife alongside her new friends, and make sense of her new world. There are a few surprises along the way, and I promise that the end of the first season will leave you shocked.
