It’s one of my favorite things in the whole world to do: Netflix and Chill (but really chill with a snack). Recently I’ve asked you if I should keep updating and reviewing my choices from Netflix (and other media) and you said YES! I’ve been killing a lot of alone time by watching a lot of new shows on Netflix. I hope you enjoy this post and maybe, haven’t seen all of these. Tell me what you think down below and if you have, rate them yourself and let me know what your other favorites are!
* all plot descriptions come from IMDB*
Royal Pains- 5 stars
A young E.R. doctor who, after being wrongly blamed for a patient’s death, moves to the Hamptons and becomes the reluctant “doctor for hire” to the rich and famous. … Hank Lawson is a doctor who can diagnose a person on the spot and treat them with whatever is around.”
what I think: I love this show! It’s addicting and positive and isn’t too gory like other tv medical dramas. It’s funny and sweet and has it’s romantic ups and downs. Divya is my favorite character and something about her is badass and determined in her situation. Plus the brothers (both actors) are really hot!
An average 28-year-old man who gains the ability to use the full extent of his brain’s capabilities is hired by the FBI as a consultant.
what I think: I just started this show but it’s very action packed and interesting to follow. I think its fascinating and can’t get enough of it. I wish his brain power was capable for all of us. It’s a murder mystery in a sense and because I just started it I don’t have more description but I’m liking it, I think it’s sorta similar to 24 the tv show.
Good Witch-2 stars
“Good Witch” will take viewers on a new magical journey with Cassie Nightingale and her daughter Grace. When Dr. Sam Radford moves in next door to Grey House with his son, they are charmed by the ‘magical’ mother-daughter duo.
what I think: It’s a sweet take on a “intuition super power” story not spooky or rated R- it’s a safe show for people of all ages (I think). The drama and mystery surrounding this family is anything but boring. I love the lesson in each episode too. Sometimes can be a little slow or boring but I love Catherine Bell (from Army Wives) and Bailee Madison (The Fosters).
Hawaii Five O (2010-)-5 stars
Steve McGarrett returns home to Oahu, in order to find his father’s killer. The governor offers him the chance to run his own task force (Five-0). Steve’s team is joined by Chin Ho Kelly, Danny “Danno” Williams, and Kono Kalakaua.
what I think: It’s ACTION packed and thrilling, mysterious and draws me into each episode. I love getting to know the characters and how their lives intertwine. The criminals in the series are evolving and getting more hard to catch and evil.
Girl-Boss- 4 stars
Sophia, a misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss. This show is loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal Founder, Sophia Amoruso.
what I think: She’s a mess like me and I can totally relate to the struggle of the hustle. I am motivated and encouraged when I watch this to push myself harder to my goals. Otherwise you’ll never get there and no one will do it for you. I love how everyone’s doubt just makes her work harder!
Life in Pieces-4 stars
A family comedy told through the separate stories of different family members.
what I think: I love this show! It’s a great spin off type of show from Parenthood. Similar to it in the presentation of the characters and story line. It;s emotional and moving at points just like the Parenthood mention. I think the acting is quality and I, personally don’t recognize a lot of actors in it but that’s okay. It’s a genuine connection.
OITNB (orange is the new black)-5 stars
Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.
what I think: This show is so addicting! While it’s content is questionable, it’s like a magnet- I just can’t stop watching. It has sexual content that is unexplained and honestly, sweetly ravaging. The prisoners stories and lives start to emerge I think in season 2-3 and that’s when I knew I had a favorite show. It’s moving, captivating and I’d say if you’re turned off by it; give it a chance, a real change like a whole season. The mood changes after season one and although they often leave you on a cliffhanger- it’s worth it!
Switched at Birth (new episodes)-5 stars
Two teenage girls’ lives are turned upside down when they find out they were switched at birth.
what I think: It’s so great the sisterhood and camaraderie that continues in the latest season. It shows the real effects of deafness on a family through their own dynamics. The sisterly bond really sticks with me and reminds me that sisterhood is life and there are seasons to siblings, sometimes its easy, sometimes its hard.
please don’t forget to re-pin if you enjoyed it!
