Winter is coming and what better way to spend a snowy/rainy/lazy day at home than with a cup of tea and the perfect shows to binge on Netflix! I've put together my fave shows that I think you all need in your life! Not to mention Gilmore GIrls: A Year in the Life comes out on Friday and I will totally be bingeing with Lorelai and Rory for 6 hours!!
Familiar Faces: Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, Helen McCrory
Peaky Blinders follows the Shelby family in 1919 Birmingham, England. The family/gang runs the town and will do anything to eliminate competition at the horse races or anyone who challenges them. Every time I watch this show, I immediately start (and failing) to talk in the accent! You never expect what's going to happen in the next episode and who doesn't love watching Cillian Murphy in 20th century England?! Not to mention they are filming Season 4! And yes that is the actress that plays Draco Malfoy's mom in the Harry Potter films.
Familiar Faces: Idris Elba
Luther follows Detective Chief Inspector John Luther as he struggles to separate his job from his personal life. Luther thinks differently than other detectives and doesn't always use those skills to benefit everyone. It's very interesting to see how twisted and different the cases are and how they are solved. For anyone who loves a good thriller or crime show--you'll immediately be drawn in!
Familiar Faces: Jamie Dornan, Gillian Anderson
The Fall follows Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson in Belfast, Northern Ireland as she tries to solve a series of murders. Jamie Dornan plays Paul Spector, a man living two lives. The life of a middle-class father of two and the life of a stalking/sexy serial killer. Twists and turns will throw you for a loop as you try to understand the mind of Spector.
FREAKS AND GEEKS
Familiar Faces: Seth Rogan, James Franco, Linda Cardellini, Jason Segel (such a good cast right?)
All of us had that struggle in high school where we tried to figure out which kind of person we were; a freak or a geek. This show perfectly describes the struggles of being young and having to pick a group to socialize with and the funny challenges of being young. Sadly the show got canceled before it's time, so don't go another moment without experiencing this awesomeness!
Familiar Faces: Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson
Meet Jess, the new roommate of three guys, in their late twenties/early thirties who now get to experience what it's like to live with a girl. The show centers around five main characters and how having Jess, a bubbly and musical loving teacher, as a roommate changes their everyday lives in the most hilarious way! If you need a good laugh, New Girl can definitely do that for you! Season 6 is currently on Tuesday evenings on FOX
Familiar Faces: Winona Ryder, David Harbour
If you haven't heard or seen anything about Stranger Things, I don't know where you've been! Stranger Things, set in the 1980's, follows a group of kids who try to find their friend Will, who has mysteriously disappeared. The show follows the stories of Will's loony mom and brother, the small town Sheriff-who is also trying to find Will, and supernatural forces taking over the town. The young actors in this series are kind of amazing and you will be dying for season 2!!
