Netflix, What I Am Currently Watching…
People may know that I am little bit of a Netflix addict. I like to say ‘Netflix is life’ a lot. I have no doubts that my obsession with Netflix is unhealthy, it was down for an hour or so the other and I seriously missed it! I only intended to have Netflix for my first free month trial, like everyone else I became hooked. I am jealous of the US version though, the UK one seems to be a little bit dated, and slow at keeping up with the trends 🙁 I like to watch on my iPad, because I often watch whilst blogging! I am watching Gossip Girl right now!
I love curling up in bed with a delicious, and I must say, probably highly calorific hot chocolate like the one above, and these two! But I feel if you are having a treat you may as well do the full show!
Anyway, back to the actual content Kayleigh! I hate how easily distracted I get….
I was tagged by the lovely Megan to do the Netflix tag. I had already planned on writing about my current Netflix watches, so although I am not answering the set questions I would like to thank her for the tag!
I am the kind of person who likes to have lots and lots of series on the go, so that when one ends I don’t feel completely lost, so I thought I would let you know the series I currently have on the go! (Since, let’s face it… who doesn’t like a good new series to begin) I sometimes watch films on Netflix, but no where near as often as I watch series!
1) PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
Now, this post couldn’t be written at all without this being mentioned. I adore PLL, and I kind of squealed with excitement when Netflix FINALLY put it on. A new episode gets uploaded each week and I am absolutely hooked! I only started watching this about September 2014, but I managed to rapidly get through the 5 seasons, it was taking up a lot of my sleeping time! (Eek) but seriously, it is so good, and I couldn’t recommend a series more, once you get started I am sure you will be gripped to find out who A is also! Although they may be dragging it out for a bit too long now, it contains a lot of twists, and it is one of those programmes where the plot is extremely clever and slots together like a puzzle, and these are my FAVOURITES to watch and read. If you love murder mysteries and girly programmes like I do, you are sure to love it. I am currently re-watching this because I am trying to create my own ‘A’ theory. I won’t lie, it kind of scares me though, especially when I walk through the woods to work!
2) GOSSIP GIRL
Although I feel that this is a series that every single person has already seen, I would like to mention it in case (for some crazy reason) someone hasn’t! I am watching this at the moment… for perhaps maybe like the fifth time? (Does that not sell it to you?!) I find it incredibly easy to watch, with many girl and boy crushes, such as THE Blake Lively of course. The classic chick flick film in 6 seasons of amazingness. Packed full of many romances, enviable fashion and filled with twists, it is a must see girly classic!
This is a new series for me! People have mentioned Dexter to me for quite a while now. I am on episode 4, I admit it is one that is taking me a bit to get into it. I feel I need to pay my utter attention to it so maybe I will become hooked shortly! The main character, Dexter (of course) really really creeps me out… and everyone is like… well Kayleigh he is a serial killer. Dexter is a forensics expert – with a weird obsession with blood, and a secret life of killing criminals. The opening sequence is creepy and makes me cringe A LOT. From what I have seen so far, it is not particularly gruesome, nor scary. I just looked now, OH MY GOD there is a whole eight seasons…. so if you are bored and want to start something new, maybe Dexter is the one for you!
4) BREAKING BAD
Now this is a series that has been majorly hyped about I think. Everyone seems to love it, but it almost seems like a bit of a drag for me… everyone is like ‘it gets better during season three, that is when it get’s really exciting’ I am just beginning season 4, and I am still finding it quite dry. I would say the reason partly behind this, is that this is a series I am watching with my boyfriend. When I am addicted to a series I just want to WATCH WATCH WATCH, but often he just likes to watch the odd 1 episode every now and then. I don’t remember the last time I even watched an episode of this, so I definitely haven’t had a chance to get into it… since I couldn’t even tell you what happened in the last episode I watched! Does anyone else not enjoy this that much?
5) HIM & HER
A very light programme, at only 28 minutes long. I love the short bite sized programmes. It is a programme I can have on whilst doing something, I often watch this with my boyfriend when we have dinner or something. It is about a relationship between Steve and Becky, quite low budget I would say, since they never leave their flat! In parts, often quite relatable, although the comedy in it won’t be for all peoples tastes. It is the kind of comedy, that is actually annoying, and really quite childish, but me and Sam still sit there cracking up (often because it is insanely cringey, like the inbetweeners) & we sit there with our head in our hands like WHYYYYYY.
6) AMERICAN HORROR STORY
This is one of these programmes, that I started watching and thought it was insanely weird! It took me a while to get into / kind of understand what was going on. (Creepy opening again) But when I got into it, I couldn’t stop watching! I have just started season 2, and it has saddened me that it is one of these series that the new season is a completely different story because I am lost and struggling to get into it again 🙁 But people tell me that season 2 is their favourite so I really need to get into it I think! If you like ghosty, demony kind of things, you will love this!
These are the ones that I am currently watching, but I have also recently finished Orange Is The New Black, and Orphan Black – they are both really good! (totally different to each other) I am just waiting for more seasons to be uploaded to Netflix, soon I hope!
I’ve previously tried to get into Suits because I hear so so so many good things about this, as well as The Vampire Diaries, so these may be adding to my list shortly! Oh I would also like to begin Broadchurch, but that isn’t on Netflix…. I LOVE TV SHOWS!
