Netflix Picks

Winter is definitely the season to crash out on the sofa in front of Netflix, preferably with tea and tasty snacks. So, as we continue the slow crawl to spring I thought I would round-up a few of my favourite programmes I've watched recently. Sharing is caring after all. 

Bojack Horseman

I think I discovered Bojak a couple of years ago and it was one I wasn't really sure if I would enjoy. I'm so glad I gave it a go though as it is great and I love all the layers of jokes with the illustrations and puns. It follows Bojack who became famous for starring in a sitcom in the 90s and his ups and downs as he tries to become relevant again.


Stranger Things

Is any tv list complete without Stranger Things? Of course not. I absolutely loved the relationship between Steve and Dustin, it was one of the best things of series two! If you haven’t seen it yet I really recommend you get that sorted ASAP.


Alias Grace

This is based on a Margaret Atwood novel which was based on the true story of Grace Marks, who was convicted of the murder of her employer and his housekeeper. I really enjoyed this and it left me thinking about the real Grace Marks for a long time. 



I really liked the first series of this so was pretty happy to see that they had made a second. Each episode follows a new character or characters, some of which turn up again at later points, and are like mini movies exploring a community or relationship. Some episodes are better than others but definitely worth a watch.


The Marvelous Mrs Maizel

This one isn't actually on Netflix but Amazon Prime instead. I loved all of the costumes and Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam Maizel. It’s by the same people that made Gilmore Girls which you can really tell with the fast paced conversation and kitsch.



I know, I know, way behind the times! We've almost finished the second season and I love it so much, so was really happy to see that season three has recently arrived on Netflix too. We’re watching it slowly, partly to make the most of it and partly because some episodes are so tense I don’t think we could handle it! If you haven't given this a go yet, I really, really recommend it.



We watched (nearly all) of this while R had flu recently. It was a really interesting look into the food industry, without being too preachy and making you feel like you can’t eat anything ever again.


Have you seen anything good recently? Let me know!
