The 50 Best Things To Watch On Netflix
With all this dreary weather we've been getting the past few weeks it is very easy to let it piss all over our parade. Most of us are challenging our bodies in the gym, eating as well as we can, trying our best not to sip any alcohol, not heading out and counting our pennies. Combine all those factors and you'll find you're a grumpy, fucking dickhead for the month of January. But don't worry, if you're planning on being a complete recluse but are still looking for a bit of entertainment Netflix is your answer.
Personally, I find that when I've had a long day and I'm about to tuck into bed, its nice to check-in on my boyfriend (yes, I call Netflix my fella), and switch off from the world for a while. AND just because I'm super sound- I've gone and done all the hard work for you and found you thousands of minutes of quality binge-watching shows- everything from the best movies, TV shows, documentaries and kiddies favourites. Here are the 50 best things to watch on Netflix Ireland & UK (in no particular order):
