COVID has got a lot of us stuck in the house wishing we would have purchased stock in Netflix years ago. I watch a wide range of TV shows on Netflix. If you open my Netflix list, what would you find? I’m not sure I want to divulge everything in there, but I’ll give you a few tidbits. I’ll be honest, this is a bit of a mixed bag, but hopefully you’ll find something that will interest you.
Docu-series / Reality
Down To Earth with Zac Efron – It’s always fun to watch your favorite celebrities in a regular element. In this series, Zac Efron travels around the world and talks about eco-friendly change and explores the way other countries live. it’s an interesting look at alternative ways to live and it really gets you thinking about how we live our lives.
Love on the Spectrum – Ever wonder what the dating lives of other people look like? This show gives you an inside look at a group of people on the [autism] spectrum that are looking for love. Some have never been on a date and others are still looking for their perfect fit. Truly a heart-warming watch.
Cobra Kai – If you were a fan of Karate Kid (even if you weren’t), there is nothing more nostalgic than Cobra Kai. I went in, fully expecting it to be a big cheese-fest, but to my surprise, it is amazingly well written. Season 3 kicks off in January so there is plenty of time to get caught up, then jump right into the new season. Lucky you, you don’t have to wait as long as the rest of us!
Doctor Foster – This short BBC One series takes us through Doctor Gemma Foster’s life as she suspects her husband is having an affair. It’s riveting to watch what a woman might go through during these early stages and the lengths she goes through to find out what’s real and what’s not.
Grey’s Anatomy – I was one of the (probably few) people that had never watched Grey’s Anatomy. So, before it’s 17th (wow) season kicked off this fall, I decided to spend the summer watching the entire series. Yes, I did it and now I feel like I’m in the know! Great show and I see why there is such a following, but if I’m being honest, it took me a few seasons to get into it.
Private Practice – If you finished Grey’s Anatomy and want to keep the party going, follow Addison Montgomery down to L.A. as she joins her California friends at their private practice. Great cast and done in the same style of Grey’s.
Queen of the South – If you’re looking for an action packed story with a female lead, look no further than this show about a Mexican woman who works her way up from the girlfriend of a drug dealer to the Queenpin of the drug world.
Bridgerton – This is a new one from the creators of Scandal (Shondaland). I’m a big fan of Shonadaland shows so I think this period drama will be right up my alley.
Never Have I Ever – This was a surprise and I didn’t know I would like this show as much as I did. It’s a coming of age comedy-drama about an American-Indian high school girl who tries to be cool while trying to get her crush to like her. There is currently 1 season, but a second season has been confirmed.
Living With Yourself – Who doesn’t love Paul Rudd? An entertaining story about a guy who is unhappy with his life and finds himself at a new-age clinic with the promise of “a better life” only to find out he has been cloned. A fun and easy watch if you are looking for something different.
Family Fun / Game Show
Floor Is Lava – If you have a young or pre-teen child, you’ve probably heard of the floor is lava game. Basically, you try to jump around your house from furniture to furniture without touching the floor. Over the summer, we found this short series gameshow on Netflix and it was a stupid good time! Sometimes there’s nothing like family game show night to lift your spirits.
So what are you streaming right now? Hopefully you find something that you can watch over the holiday break and into the new year.
