Last night I decided to reunite myself with the drunken idiots that you find in clubs on a saturday night, and venture out with friends for a "Night out on the town" and it made me realise...How much I hate being in town! It's loud, hot and everyone is dressed like slutty hippos. Well, probably not hippos but you get my message.
I spent the entire night wishing that I was on my sofa, cuddled up under a duvet, being reunited with my one true love. Netflix.
So if you are anything like me, and thinking that you are too old, or too lazy to be out on a saturday night, I thought I would let you know my Netflix favourites to cuddle up and watch.
Now, this has to be one of the funniest shows I have watched since getting Netflix. It may look like a cartoon but it has the most adult humour, and amazing characters.
Sterling Archer is an ISIS agent, and along with his colleagues Lana and more, they deal with all the terrorists/killers/pirates you can think of.
There are around 6 series, so you have plenty to watch, and with each series it simply gets better.
Your vocabulary will grow with the words phrasing and sploosh, and you will be hooked from every episode.
Love Fairy Tales? Love Disney? Love suspense, humour and being hooked to a show? Then this is a must have. They take all of the fairy tales you have grown up listening to, and gives them a massive twist. There is suspense all of the way through, and me and Geran often spend all night watching this, and gasping at the plot development and the characters changing.
Don't be fooled, this is definantly for the adult who loves the innocence of the fairy tales being turned into a dark story that will leave you thinking about it all night.
If you are feeling something a little more dated, then this period drama is for you. Even if you aren't...Just watch it! This is my favourite period drama (Yes, even beating pride and prejudice) and it holds a large part in my heart since the day I watched it.
This is a four part BBC drama, so it will last you around 4 hours which is definantly worth the time. It takes you back to the cotton mills, with riots in mill workers, and forbidden romance. What more would you want?
Andy Samberg, Andy Samberg, Andy Samberg. Yes I know that my love for this guy is not enough to convince you to watch but it's enough for me! The second I had seen that he was a lead in a show, I jumped right up to my TV, and then stood back and sat down with the remote... I was not let down. I have been watching this since the days of FreeView and I didn't even know about Netflix; and it is still going strong!
This is so damn funny, and the cast is just perfect. You cannot watch this and not laugh ridiculously loud at the television and scaring your neighbours!
You all knew this was coming, so I thought I would save this until last. If you have not heard of the Orange is the new black you must be living under a rock like a troll under a bridge. This is the most amazing show, and I am completely hooked. The new series is out, and I screamed when I noticed the release date in Netflix.
I will warn you that it contains lots of nudity, so it is not for the young, but if you are old enough, and have an open mind, give it a try! You won't regret it!
So, when you are telling your friends that you can't come out for drinks because you are "working" or "ill" or "skint". Grab some snacks, jump into your pyjamas and take a look at these beauties. Heed my warning though, you won't be leaving your sofa in a long time so bring... more snacks!
