One of my first ever blog posts way back in 2015 was my favourite shows to binge-watch on Netflix. I’ve decided to do another but only Netflix Orginals (because they are available for everyone to watch, no matter what part of the world you live in)!

Netflix Originals are shows made by Netflix so they’re available in all countries. There are so many that I love, but I’ve cut it down to my top 5!

I briefly wrote about this show in my last Netflix blog post but has since had a second season made! The second season was even better than the first, and I absolutely loved the first season! Master of None was created by one of my favourite comedians, Aziz Ansari who is also the main character. It is about Dev, a 30 year old actor and his personal and professional life. My favourite episode from Season 1 is episode 2, Parents. I couldn’t decide on a favourite from Season 2 because they’re all really great, but Episode 6, I Love you, New York and Episode 8, Thanksgiving, are both amazing and have incredible messages and try to show life through the eyes of POC.

I feel like I don’t even have to say anything about this show because everyone loves it! If you haven’t watched Stranger Things yet, its about a young boy who disappears; and his family and friends have to deal with strange forces while trying to get him back. It is set in a small Indiana town in 1983 so it has a really fun vibe. I am super excited for Season 2 which will be out on October 27th! Make sure you watch (or re-watch) soon so you’re ready for Season 2!

I had seen this pop up on my Netflix home page quite a few times but never took much notice of it until my friend told me to watch it. I love Drew Barrymore so I thought I’d give a go and I’m so glad I did! I never see anyone talking about this show, but it really is one of the best Netflix Originals I’ve ever seen! Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant play a husband and wife realtor team whose lives take a weird turn when Drew Barrymore’s character dies. I am so excited that this show got renewed for a second season because it is such a fun show!

This show is a prequel to the 2001 movie Wet Hot American Summer (which is about the last day of camp). This show is kind of crazy but I love it! It has an amazing cast including, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, and my favourite Christopher Meloni! This show also got renewed for a second season which will be out August 4th 2017! I honestly can’t even begin to explain this weird show, but if you enjoy the actors in it, then you will probably like the show!

I usually hate Super Hero everything, but as soon as I watched the trailer for Jessica Jones I was so into it. I honestly think this is my favourite of all of these. Not only is Krysten Ritter brilliant as the title character, but David Tennant excels as the creepy villain Killgrave. Jessica Jones is just one in a series of Super Hero shows that Netflix has made. I’ve not yet watched the others, but I will soon because The Defenders is being released next month and it looks really good!

So those are my top 5 at the moment! Netflix are always release new and fun shows so I’ll probably make another one of these at the end of the year! If I didn’t mention your favourite please comment it below because I’m always looking for new shows to watch on the weekend!

    I loved the Santa Clarita diet. It was so funny and Stranger things is on my list of things to watch. I will get around to it eventually hopefully before the second series starts. #TwinklyTuesday
