I complain about the winter months a lot, but I have to admit that rainy days provide a great excuse to curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea and binge watch some good TV, especially if you’re stuck at home due to the Coronavirus pandemic and tier system. If you’re struggling to find new shows that you really vibe with, I’ve put together a list of some of my favourites. Even better, they’re all on UK Netflix!
I think that I’ve watched the entirety of Gilmore Girls around 5 times. Maybe more. This series is my ultimate comfort series. It’s 7 seasons of nonstop pop-culture references and laughter. Not to mention that the autumnal Connecticut aesthetic makes it the perfect thing to watch right now!
There’s no other way to say this: if you haven’t seen Friends, you must have been living under a rock for the past 25 years. However if that does in fact describe you, I highly recommend heading over to Netflix right now to remedy that.
Whenever an American says something to me about how civilised and posh Brits are, I point them in the direction of this show. I genuinely think that Outnumbered is the most accurate representation of Britain that has ever been on television. Oh, and it’s absolutely hilarious.
Once Upon A Time
Also on Disney Plus, the way this show weaves fairytales into the real world is brilliant. As much as I know this is a “binge watching” list, I will admit that this series did lose my interest a few times over the seven seasons. However it always managed to pick up again when you persevere with it.
It might take a few episodes to get into this, but by the time you get to the second season you’ll probably be hooked. Series with storylines based around horses aren’t usually my thing, but I really connected with this for some reason.
Seeing Katie McGrath and Emilia Fox as villains is really all you need in life. This show was really popular in the UK when it was airing, but a lot of people seem to have forgotten its existence in the years since. Do yourself a favour and check it out!
I hope that this list will have given you a few ideas of what to binge watch this winter! I’d love to hear if you guys have any recommendations too. Happy watching!
