The long rainy and cold Winter days, are the perfect excuse to stay inside and binge watch our favourite TV shows. My Netflix account gets used so much more in the Autumn/Winter months. It’s the time of year that I love to put on a film and snuggle up by the fire with my family.
If you don’t fancy going outdoors in the rain, but aren’t sure what to watch, check out our ‘Netflix Winter Top Picks‘. All you need to do is grab some blankets and snacks and schedule in some family snuggle time or some much needed ‘you’ time.
1. The Crown
I watched one episode of The Crown and now I’m officially hooked. The Crown is a drama series set in the 1940’s and is perfect to watch alone or with your other half. This gripping, Netflix-original drama chronicles the life of our now Queen, Elizabeth II. The series begins with an inside look at the early reign of our queen, who ascended the throne at age 25 after the death of her father, King George VI.
2. Gilmore Girls
Gilmore Girls is such a heart-warming series to watch. I used to watch it when I was younger and always dreamt that when I became a mum, I’d have a relationship like Lorelai has with her daughter Rory.
Gilmore Girls is an american drama/comedy based around family and friendship and is perfect for binge watching alone. Set in a charming, small town in Conneticut, Gilmore Girls follow headstrong 30 something, single mum Lorelai and her teenage daughter Rory. Lorelai owns the towns bed and breakfast alongside her best friend Sookie. Her well-off parents always have something to say about Lorelai’s rebellious life and have more in common with Lorelai’s teenage daughter Rory, who has high hopes of going off to Yale University. The series follows this mother/daughter team as they navigate life’s up and downs in the cooky town they live in.
3. Beat Bugs
The third show in our ‘Netflix Winter Top Picks’ is Beat Bugs. Beat Bugs follows the lives of five best friends – Crick, Jay, Buzz, Kumi and Walter, as they live out their childhood adventures in an overgrown suburban backyard.
The show will be loved by both adults and children in your family. Created by Josh Wakely, tells uplifting and life-affirming stories, filled with hope and melody. Each half-hour episode follows the five best friends as they band together, exploring and learning about their universe. Each episode features a different song by The Beatles. The song acts as a basis for the adventures of the young bugs.
4. The Little Prince
The fourth of our ‘Netflix Winter Top Picks’ is also one for the entire family. The Little Prince is a story for children, but written for grown-ups. Based on a book, the different levels of this beautiful storyline provides both pleasure and food for thought for all ages.
5. The Originals
The final show in our ‘Netflix Winter Top Picks’ is The Originals. Not everyones cup of tea, but I can’t not include The Originals. It is hands down my favourite show of the moment and my biggest guilty pleasure.
Fan of The Vampire Diaries? Then you’ll love the story of The Original vampires in this spinoff series. It’s not one for children to watch, but it’s perfect for nights in with friends, for couples or to watch alone. Now in it’s third season and still reigning strong, the show follows the Original family who all despise and dispute with each other, yet still try to prove that blood is thicker than water.
