The Top 5 Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows You NEED to Watch

When I started to draft up this post, I began by making a list of all the Netflix shows that I have enjoyed watching over the last year or so, and it turned out I've watched a lot more TV than I first realised! Having watched so many series', I've managed to narrow down my list to the top 5 Netflix shows that I've either thoroughly enjoy, or have simply changed my life.

The Top 5 Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows You NEED to Watch

Today's post is actually in collaboration with OLED TV Panasonic. If you didn't know already OLED stands for organic 'light emitting diode,' meaning each pixel has its own source of illumination (little handy fact for anyone who loves the technical side of things like me!). Because of this, OLED televisions have superior displays that are bright, bold and incredibly accurate - perfect for grabbing every outfit detail from one of your Netflix favourites like Blair Waldorf, or simply making celebrities seem a little more human by actually seeing their skin in detail! With this display development to consider, I was reminded of the Netflix shows that I love to watch over and over again.

Black Mirror

A show that's designed to provoke thought, Black Mirror explores ideas of how technology could be included in our everyday lives in the future. From eye contacts that have the power to let you replay your most embarrassing situations over and over, through to downloading our souls into inanimate objects, Black Mirror will have you feeling both as concerned about technology as you are in awe of its capabilities. With endless plot twists you just won't see coming, the best thing about the series is that the episodes are all independent from each other. So if you find it's not your thing, you won't feel obliged to watch the rest of the season!

The Top 5 Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows You NEED to Watch

Stranger Things

Reluctant as to whether I was going to be able to relate to a show centred around a group of boys, set in a small American town in the 80's, I finally gave in to the hype and let myself be submerged into the Sci-Fi world of Stranger Things. With a wide variety of interesting characters of all ages and one common enemy, I've been amazed by how addictive I've found the show to be! I feel like Stranger Things is Sci-Fi for people who don't like Sci-Fi, it's not too heavy with science jargon and offers just enough in terms of romance to keep fans like myself on the hook - roll on Stranger Things 3!


If you grew up watching the Suite Life of Zack & Cody, then seeing Cole Sprouse portray Jughead Jones in Riverdale will immediately peak your interest. All the drama of high school, wrapped in murder and mystery, Riverdale is definitely a thrilling series. The best friend dramas and teen romances contrast wonderfully with the gang wars and corrupt business deals, making Riverdale an 'all in one' watch that you'll find unable to turn off until the early hours. 

Girl Boss

Initially I started watching Girl Boss one rainy Saturday morning, looking for an easy watch to listen to in the background whilst I was getting ready. Finding myself literally irritated by the main character Sophia (something which most people have said), I surprisingly found myself watching the series until the very end. Taken in by her tenacious attitude, drive and passion for fashion (hello Bratz quote) I actually grew to like Sophia as I followed her journey and was genuinely inspired by the show. A must-watch for anyone who's got an idea but is lacking in the confidence to execute it, Girl Boss will leave you feeling like anything is possible if you're persistent enough!

Gossip Girl

And finally Gossip Girl. Where do I even begin to explain how much I adore this show? I've watched it over and over consecutively, and it's always my go to series. I'll refer to Gossip Girl for life, business or relationship advice, and often find myself thinking WWBWD? (That's what would Blair Waldor do? For anyone who has yet to discover the show!)

Set in the Upper East side of New York, there's enough scandal, romance and back-stabbing to more than satisfy your cravings. Watching Blair & Serena constantly fall out and reunite, swap boyfriends and strive for perfection in their lives is honestly so frustrating at times, but there's such an addictive quality to the show, its iconic characters and plot lines, that you'll completely forget about your own life as you immerse yourself in the endless galas and social events. If you've got a penchant for fashion and love drama, Gossip Girl is the show for you. The whole Chuck & Blair relationship is reason enough to jump on the Gossip Girl bandwagon - I've never felt so emotionally invested in a TV relationship in my entire life - go Chair!

I'd love to know whether you've got the same Netflix favourites as me, or can even suggest something new for me to watch that you're addicted to, given what I've enjoyed above - leave me a little comment below!

Until next time..
