The weather is turning, pumpkin spice is back, and it’s time to start getting cozy. A dose of Netflix is just what the doctor ordered. But let me set the scene for you because it’s all too familiar. You’re wondering what to watch on Netflix. You’ve got the remote, you’ve got Netflix all ready, and then…you stop. There’s too much choice, you’re squabbling with the other half, you’ve read every single synopsis and you still don’t know what to choose.
Let me do the hard work for you, these are the best shows on Netflix right now.
Narcos is the story of Pablo Escobar, the Colombian drug lord. It might not sound like it’s really ‘up your street’ but you’ll be hooked from episode one, with drama, glamour, and suspense, you find yourself rooting for all the wrong people. The newest series tells the story of the Cali Cartel, and it promises to be this weekend’s best viewing.
2. Orphan Black
If you haven’t started Orphan Black, do yourself a favor and watch it from the very beginning. It’s phenomenal. Tatiana Maslany is just incredible. It tells the story of a woman who finds out she’s a clone. You actually forget it’s just one actress portraying all these complex characters, and the more the show goes on the deeper you get hooked in.
3. The Expanse
Everyone is going crazy for The Expanse since the second series has dropped. It’s a sci-fi show designed for a 21st-century audience. With the rise of shows like Game of Thrones making these genres more mainstream, The Expanse is dramatic, well-written and a seriously good watch.
Maybe you want something a little less dark – we hear you. You’re alone in the house and you don’t fancy watching Making A Murderer. Glow is your go-to. In a nutshell, it’s about female wrestling, but it’s so much more than that. It’s oh so good. Just watch the trailer, it’ll give you chills and make you feel empowered. You’re a woman and you can do ANYTHING! Watch this if you need a boost.
5. The Keepers
Love true crime? Watch The Keepers, it’s so creepy, so sad, and so intriguing. It’s not just about an unsolved murder, it’s about corruption in the church and how a community covered it up. If you’re an armchair detective, you need to watch this.
6. Alias Grace
Ok, I cheated a little bit because this one is coming out soon. It’s going to be so good and I want to make sure everyone’s ready to watch it. If you loved Handmaid’s Tale as much as I did (seriously when is it back?) you’ll love this one. Margaret Atwood is a genius, I’ve always loved her writing and now she gets to be behind two powerhouse shows. Can’t wait for this one.
