5 Things I’m loving on Netflix

I’ve been pretty under the weather for the last 10 days, and when I saw under the weather – absolutely floored with the Flu. I hate being ill; being confined to my bed, having zero energy to do anything and falling behind on plans you have. I thought I would ease my way back into blogging this week by sharing 5 shows/films I have been loving on Netflix recently and giving you a sneak peek into my TV habits.

1. Pretty Little Liars. I actually didn’t even bother with this show until this year and thought why not! I’m pretty addicted and have just started Season 5 and am constantly changing my mind about who A is.


2. Gotham. I flaming love anything comic book related and this is no exception. Bobby & I finished this pretty quickly due to loving the main character James Gordon pre the Batman movies. Plus being a huge OC fan as a teenager means I love seeing Ben McKenzie in something else.


3. Spartacus. Another favourite is anything related to ancient Greece or mythology and Spartacus is right up there. Think Gladiator meets Game of Thrones with all the blood and gore.

Spartacus; Episode

4. Kevin Hart Seriously Funny 2010. We came across this whilst trying to find something different to watch one sunday night and were in absolute stitches from the start. I think Kevin Hart is incredible and sooo funny so you should check this out if you need a good laugh.


5. Making A Murderer. Again this has been hugely popular of late but I was a bit late on the bandwagon. I’m only half way through so I haven’t seen the whole thing yet but so far, I’m loving it. Even my mum has been watching it after I’ve raved on so much.


So those have been my top 5 lately and I’m still watching some of them as we speak. I urge you to watch any of them if you have some spare time but you will get addicted fairly quickly.

The Netflix Tag


I have seen lots of other bloggers doing the Netflix tag and sat there waiting for someone to tag me when Danielle from A Shi…Pload of Polish offered to tag me. I was super excited to read her post and write my own up as I am a massive Netflix fan. Here we go then…

All Time Favourite –

Has to be the Vampire Diaries and Once Upon A Time. I absolutely love The Vampire Diaries and actually stumbled upon it by complete accident whilst on holiday in Florida a couple of years ago. I saw an advert for the Originals on tv there and wanted to know more because it looked so good. Once I found out it was a spin-off from the Vampire Diaries I started watching straight away and have been hooked on it ever since. Once upon a Time came when I was looking for a new series to watch and thought it sounded interesting. After the 1st episode I watched the next few seasons in a matter of weeks and cannot wait for the new series to come out.

Current Addiction –

I am ashamed to say I don’t have much of an addiction to anything at the moment. I am just waiting for the next series of the Originals to come onto Netflix UK. I have been watching films on and off or starting new programmes as I go but haven’t found anything that has stuck yet.

Wishlist –

In order of preference it would be The Originals Season 2, Glee Season 5 & 6 (I know I’m a geek), and definitely Divergent and Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1.


Pet Peeve –

When someone either rings or interrupts me during an episode and proceeds to have a full-blown conversation with me despite me telling them to shhhh. Or when I finish a series and have to wait agggggeeeessss for the next one to come online.

Marathon Essentials –

Tucked up under the duvet, slob clothes i.e.joggers/pjs/hoody, sweets or crisps depending on how I’m feeling and my glasses, because I squint at the tv but still can’t see it properly without them.

What’s on my watch list –

Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, House of Cards, Daredevil and Breaking Bad. Yes I know I am clearly a series junkie.

You Should watch –

Everything I have listed already, Fast & The Furious 6, Lizzie McGuire movie because it is truly outstanding Disney tv turned film and Suits.

I won’t tag anyone specifically on the back of this post, however if you feel inspired to write your own after reading mine then I would love for you to leave your links in the comments section or tweet me them @Lauraknowslife.

Hope you enjoyed this post.
