Netflix and Chill – My Latest Binges

If you’re anything like my fiancé and I, we love our Netflix and Chill sessions and often like to spend our evenings binging on Netflix series. If they’re particularly addictive, we’ve been known to finish a whole series over a weekend. Stranger Things, The Sinner – it’s fair to say we are hooked. With that in mind, I’d like to share my latest binges with you.

The Crown

I can’t believe how much I enjoyed this series. I can honestly say that I learnt more about the Royal Family in the space of a week than I have in my entire life. The Crown has been cast extremely well and there are some excellent characters to both laugh and cry with! I found Princess Margaret’s love life in particular heart breaking. If you’re looking for a show on Netflix that’s intriguing and witty, I would certainly recommend a watch.

Designated Survivor

I wasn’t sure how I felt about this series initially, however the show poses quite an interesting storyline and allows you to play detective through each of the episodes. You also get a glimpse of life in the White House which I think is quite cool. Designated Survivor is perfect for those who enjoy political dramas with their fair share of action.


I’ve never watched a dubbed tv show before and was convinced that I wouldn’t enjoy Dark based purely on that (the original is in German). I was actually pleasantly surprised and the dubbing wasn’t too noticeable. This next Netflix binge centres around time travel and a continuous loop of events between the past, present and future. It’s quite a lot to get your head round and even confusing at times, but addictive nonetheless.


How could I not include Friends? No matter how many times I watch Monica and Chandler’s proposal, it still makes me cry. Big thumbs up to Netflix for allowing Friends to grace our screens again. This binge watch is actually taking up most of my evenings at the moment. Losing myself in a sitcom is a great way to escape from reality when I’ve had a stressful day at work. Friends – it never gets old 🙂

What are you watching on Netflix?

I’ve been watching a few episodes of Black Mirror recently and that’s bizarre yet intriguing to say the least. Some episodes I’ve found a little too strange and they have probably given me nightmares! 😂

    If you haven’t already, watch The Sinner! A Netflix Original and only 8 episodes…it’s dark but gripping!

    Friends is definitely a show that everyone should watch lol. I can watch it over and over again. You should watch a show called “The Following”

      I’ve just had a Google and it looks very intriguing. 7.5/10 on IMDB too! Thanks for the recommendation 😃
