For those of you who don’t know, the UK is a third of the way (pretty much) through their second national lockdown. And if, like me, you’ve completely finished your List on Netflix, I’m here to find you some new options! Netflix comes out with new content pretty much every day and so I have some new gems, but I’ve written many of these before, and you can read them here:

And here are my latest favourites!
I feel like this is one of Netflix’s greats! And not only because it’s actually a really good film, but because it genuinely doesn’t feel like Netflix. You’ve got big names, it’s cleverly directed and it feels like a big screen hit. And I mean no offence to Netflix (because by God am I a fan of them), but if you’ve seen it you’ll know what I mean! It’s also nice to watch something that’s like 2 hours of your life and then done.
Set It Up
Effectively a work place parent trap, I am such a fan of this film. I’ve actually watched it 3 times. The characters are endearing and it’s a chuckle funny film! You’ve got 2 exhausted PAs who set their bosses up on a date…and then I’m sure you can predict how it’s going to end. But it’s a great easy watch!
Emily In Paris
Could I talk about a Netflix recommended list and not mention this show? Probably not. This is such a bingeworthy TV show. An American who works in marketing moves to Paris for work without speaking a word of French… and it’s just a typical chickflick tv show! It’s definitely a guilty pleasure… you want to hate it, but something inside you just loves it! Also, as someone trying to learn French… I can relate to pretty much every struggle she has!
Ok, sometimes this show does get a little insane (with Gargoyle Kings and Serial Killers galore), but there is something quite addictive about it. You follow the lives of a group of teenagers in a pretty messed up town solving riddles and getting themselves into unimaginable trouble!
What a trash tv show! And yet I love it! I mean you’re literally watching a group of glamorous women sell ridiculously priced properties, BUT it’s somehow amazing! It’s effectively a reality TV show where you follow the lives of these real women.. and the cat fights! Owch!
The Umbrella Academy
So if you’re looking for something you can actually watch with your other half, this is it. It’s like a cool superhero show with time travels and ends of the world and everything you need … well for a superhero TV show. But it has some amazing characters in it from Five to Klaus!
Not a Netflix original, but it is on Netflix. This is one of those classic American TV shows where there are a million episodes and it doesn’t matter too much if you watch them out of sync. You follow the live of a family with all their quirks and arguments from the judgy Granded to the gay son to the grandchildren! Love this show!
So this show is strictly speaking dubbed, but it’s done pretty well! Set in Spain, it follows the lives of kids in a very esteemed private school where someone seems to be murdered every season and you spend the season unravelling whodunnit!
A remake of the 1980s show of the same name, this is a GREAT show! It’s effectively two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, feud for control over their fortune and their children. And one of the main characters, Fallon Carrington, is just wonderful! Witty and intelligent… ah, love it!
