I like most have gained a love for online streaming subscription services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. I find it the best way to chill out, get snuggled up and watch what you want when you want. In fact I don't really watch live TV anymore unless its something i feel like i cant miss. With all the shows on Netflix and it being updated on regular basis there is always something to watch. So much so I am normally spoilt for choice. 

If you have Netflix but have no idea what to watch or your thinking about getting Netflix then look no further than this list for some great shows to watch. I thought that it might be good to give you a list of my favourites to read through.

The Vampire Diaries:

If you haven't already watched this then you really are missing out especially if your a fan of vampire fiction like Twilight but this is better. I myself missed out on watching the show when it was first released and didn't get into it until 3 seasons had already been released. It takes a couple of episodes to get into and set the story line but after that I was hooked and had watched all three 23 episode seasons within a week 😮. It follows a teenage girl named Elena whose parents died in a freak car accident. The series takes place at the beginning of the new school year upon her return to school after the accident. This is where she meets new student Stefan Salvatore little does she know that he is a vampire. Animal attacks keep happening in town but it is clear that this is a cover up and vampires are the cause in enter Stefan's seemingly evil brother Damon; the story spirals from there. The thing I love about this series is there are so many twist and turns and shocking moments; it isn't your average vampire story but it does contain witches, werewolves and various other supernatural beings. 

The Originals:

You can't watch Vampire Diaries then not go onto watch The Originals. The Originals is a Vampire Diaries spin off which can be watched alone or after watching Vampire Diaries. It follows the family of original vampires as they struggle to hold their family together. It takes place after the Original family leave Mystic falls the town in which Vampire Diaries is based and head back to New Orleans. New Orleans was once home to the original family and run by them. The main protagonist of the family Klaus returns home to find his once protegee has  taken to becoming ruler of the french quarter. All I have to say is that Klaus isn't happy and wants his kingdom back. 


Well where do I start with Luther, what a series!. The one thing I can say about Luther is that I wish I had watched it sooner and I'm not quite sure why I didn't as my parents kept telling me it was worth the watch and they weren't lying. I love cop dramas so when I did get around reading about I knew I was going to love it. That meant there where no surprises when I was hooked from the first episode. Luther is a detective played by the very handsome Idris Elba who works to solve a series of murders while battling his own demons. The acting is phenomenal and it is a edge of your seat watch no matter how many times you've seen it. I just hope and pray that Idris will reprise his role for another series. 

American Horror Story:

This is definitely worth a watch if you love the horror genre and would like to see a refreshing twist on it. I would say if your faint at heart then this one isn't for you. It can be scary, jumpy and unsettling but it makes for an amazing watch as it is so different to any other TV series I have ever watched. Each season has reprising actors and they take on a completely different story which loosely link back to each other. First season is called "murder house" and it is a great twist on a traditional haunted house. Second season is called "asylum" and is set in a mental asylum at times it can make for uncomfortable watching. Third season which is one of my favorites is "coven" which follows a bunch of young witches coming to term with their powers. Fourth season which I am not a massive fan of is "freak show" which follows a circus which consists of people who are known as freaks. Fifth season which I think has to be my favorite is "hotel" it has to be by far the bloodiest season to date but I just love the complex story line. This season also sees Lady GaGa play a sexy vampiress who tries to seduce males and females alike. The acting is unbelievable and it really showcases how talented each actor is.

How to get away with murder:

If you like murder mysteries you will love this. This is also perfect for those who love to get to the end of an episode and think no way!. I was hooked from the get go as this series has such a great concept and it jumps back and forth from past to present. It's about a criminal defense attorney know as Annalise Keating who teaches a class at law school called "how to get away with murder".  It then follows a group of her students who are given the opportunity to work with her at her law firm this is where things take a dark twist because the student really do have to find out how to get away with murder. 

I Zombie:

If you a Vampire Diaries or Teen Wolf fan you must give iZombie a go. The lead protagonist is Liv Moore, a successful medical resident with a doting fiance and an exciting life to look forward to - that is, until she attends a boat party and gets turned into a flesh-eating Zombie. Fear not, though - in iZombie, zombies don't become braindead, lifeless beings who slowly stumble about looking for brains - if they get their human brain fix, they act just like normal humans - aside from not actually being alive and having an extremely pale complexion. iZombie follows Liv as she's forced to leave her fiance and become a medical examiner at the morgue in order to get her brain fix. Once a zombie eats a brain, however, they acquire the memories of whoever's brain they've eaten, and so Liv teams up with detective Clive Babineaux to help him solve crimes. This is a really funny show because Liv also takes on the character traits of the person whos brains she has eaten this can be anything from a high school jock to a radio sex expert. I watched the full two seasons in 3 days as it had me hooked.
Gossip Girl:

Gossip Girl, a ruthless and mysterious blogger reveals secrets about teens in upper east side New York. With roller coaster romances and piles of secrets hiding away for Gossip Girl to find, this show is sure to bring the upper east side and its drama into our lives. Gossip Girl follows the lives of privileged teenagers on the upper east side. Serena Van Der Woodsen is a blonde and beautiful socialite, Everyone knows Serena. Blair Waldorf is Serena's best friend but it's always about Serena not Blair. Nate Archibald is Blair's boyfriend but ever since Serena came back from boarding school Nate has been acting strange? Chuck Bass a rich and arrogant person. Daniel Humphrey a lonely boy from Brooklyn, NY who nobody knows. Follow the lives of this guilty pleasure show.


Narcos tells the true-life story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels across the globe and attendant efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It centers around the notorious Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar and Steve Murphy, a DEA agent sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture and ultimately kill him. Pablo Escobar, A Columbian Drug lord is the primary target for DEA agents and the government. He obtains a lot of money but couldn't change his fate.Despite of his crime, he loves his family and his associates and proves he is nothing but a human. It is partially subtitled but stick with it as it is well worth the watch.

Hope you find something on this list you would like to watch.
