If your weekend has been anything like ours then you're probably in some sort of semi-conscious chocolate/hangover coma right now. And that's fine.

But what's not fine is having to go through the agony of choosing what to watch on Netflix.

Seriously, is there anything more difficult? It's torn families apart quicker than a game of Monopoly, and to anyone in a new relationship who has had to bear the burden of being in charge of the remote - we feel your pain.

So to take to stress out of your evening and reduce your back-to-work fear, we've rounded up a list of what you should be watching tonight.

You won't go wrong with any of these:

1. Sing Street

This feel-good movie set in 1980s Dublin sees a teenage outsider attempt to win over the heart of his school crush by forming a band. Very teenage, very fun. 

It's Golden Globe nominated and the soundtrack is very impressive.

2. Wild

Starring the talented Reese Witherspoon as a young inexperienced and determined woman who sets off on the journey of a lifetime. 

One of those movies that you just HAVE to see. 

3. The Most Hated Woman In America

This is the story of notorious Madalyn Murray O'Hair, a prominent atheist whose campaigning ended official Bible readings in American public schools.

She filed several high profile cases in an attempt to separate Church and State, and achieved attention to the extent that in 1964 Life magazine referred to her as "the most hated woman in America."

4. Louis CK 2017

Louis C.K. is back with his thoughts on how we count years, the concept of enduring love, giving dogs drugs, 'Magic Mike' and much more.


5. Girlboss

An original comedy series based on the #Girlboss, the autobiography of American businesswoman Sophia Amoruso who will be played by Britt Robertson.  

Amoruso is the founder of retail website 'Nasty Gal' and the series is a light-hearted look at the trials and tribulations of her foray into the the cut-throat world of running a fashion empire. 

6. Shadow of Truth 

Perhaps best described as an Israeli version of Making A Murderer.

In December 2006, Ukrainian immigrant Roman Zadorov admitted to the murder of a 13-year-old school girl, whose body he left in a locked bathroom stall.

But not everyone is convinced that Roman actually committed the heinous crime. This is a murder mystery with some very disturbing implications.

7. Exit Through The Gift Shop

When renowned graffiti artist Banksy took the camera away from Thierry Guetta, the man shooting his biopic, and decided that the subject would become the documentarian, an incomparably zany (and very, very funny) documentary was born.

8. Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 1 

After becoming a lone survivor in a plane accident as a child, Danny Rand, a billionaire New Yorker is left stranded in a mystical Buddhist monastery and trains in kung-fu and the supernatural art of the Iron Fist.  

Fifteen years later, he returns to New York City...

9. Before I Wake 

This freaky flick will appeal to fans of creepy kids in horror movies. A couple who are devastated at the death of their son foster 8-year-old Cody who it soon turns out has nightmares which manifest themselves into reality. 

Spooky or what?

10. Santa Clarita Diet

This series sounds bizarre but really is brilliant and so hilarious. 

Starring Drew Barrymore as, well, a dead carnivore. If you haven't checked this out yet please please do.

11. The Discovery 

The sci-fi romance stars Rooney Mara, Jason Segel and Robert Redford, and is set in a world where the existence of the afterlife has been discovered by scientist Dr Harbor.

This revelation immediately sets off mass suicide by people anxious to get to the other side in the hopes of being happy there. Others continue on, trying to decide what it all means.

12. The Ascent Of Woman 

A groundbreaking four-part BBC documentary series that follows the fascinating role of women in society over the course of 10,000 years.

Who invented the veil? When did patriarchy come into being? All these answered and more.

Now all you gotta do is pick from that great bunch!
