Netflix Recommendations


Something that we all love, Netflix!!!! If you don't have it already then seriously you need to jump on board. The basic package is £5.99 a month, that's all you need to be honest.

I spend a lot of time at home, just genuinely as a parent you do but now I work from home too. My days and evenings are being spent watching Netflix. Luckily, one upside to being a single parent - don't have to share the television choice. I decided Netflix was a good way to cure the boredom of the nights spent alone once Corey has gone to bed. I can get through TV series quite quickly especially once I'm hooked.

I am not even going to attempt recommending movies, as there are far too many and it is all down to personal preference. But TV series are different so here are some of my Netflix recommendations:


Coming soon to Netflix. A classic that we all know and love. Everyone watches but when was the last time you watched from beginning to end in order? It is really strange doing it but so worth it. 

Pretty Little Liars

This is a new recent find for me after many blogger recommendations. I'm currently half way through and safe to say I am obsessed. It is by far one of my top ever series. All about four friends in school and a missing person investigation. 

Orange Is The New Black

I am yet to watch this, it is a Netflix original but I have only heard very good things - it is next on my list. Story line is do with girls is prison.  

The Walking Dead

I am not into zombies at all, I watched the first few episodes which were pretty amazing. But it started to get a bit too gruesome for my liking. If it sounds like something you would like, then go for it.

Gossip Girl

Pretty much exactly what it sounds like - very girly. I love it! Admittedly I have only watched the first few series when they came out, but I will finish it off with my long list to watch. I hear it gets better as it goes on :)

The Prison Break

I wondered whether I would like this or not. Certainly need to watch first couple of episodes to get into it properly but then it is amazing. The title explains what it is all about plus with Wentworth Miller for eye candy, just yummy!

Breaking Bad

I'm not even going to tell you the plot of this as it is one you need to watch to find out. I was really surprised but in a good way, it is much more interesting than I ever thought and by seems of it everyone else thinks the same too. It is brilliant!


I don't know how big this is in UK but I know it is still huge in America. I love it, for me it is one of those just like Friends that can watch an episode over and over and not get bored. It is about supernatural stuff, witches fighting demons. I love it! 


We all know what Scrubs is, I got so excited when I found they had all the series on Netflix. Doctors living lives, such a good comedy to watch!

Some other suggestions are: Vampire Diaries, 24, House Of Cards, Fringe, The Bridge and more..

They have sooooo many it is unbelieveable. Your TV choices are sorted for months. I just wish they had a better selection of newer movies as I would like to see them too! 

Whilst writing this post I came across a blogger's Netflix tag that I saw on Alice's blog which you should check out here - I think I will give it a go at some point I think :)

What is your favourite TV series?! Leave me your recommendations in the comments..

Love, Gemma xo

  1. Great post, we love watching Netflix. Breaking Bad is amazing! We've just got into Homeland and it is SOOOO good, we watch an episode a night! xx

  2. I love a bit of Netflix but spend as much time trying to decide what to watch as actually watching - there's almost too much choice! I definitely want to give a few of these series a go and must remember to add them to my list for when I go on maternity leave x

  3. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my new sub to Netflix! I watched the whole of Orange is the New Black in one weekend. Obsessed was not the word. Now I've started "The Good Wife". Great viewing! #mummymonday

  4. We love a bit of netflix here. Huge fan of friends and scrubs #MummyMonday

  5. Hold on.... Friends is coming to Netflix?! I thought it was US only?? I don't know why I'm so excited, I've got the box set and watch it every night in bed. I know every episode off by heart and really don't need to start watching on Netflix. But I will. Because I'm obsessed ;) xx #mummymonday

  6. Great post. I need to get Netflix in my life if only for Orange is the new black. #mummymonday
