Series to binge watch in winter
Following on from our previous blog on feel good movies, we decided the best way to share our desires to hibernate until the temperatures are well into double digits, is through sharing our list of go to series to binge watch.
Through a lot of lively discussion, friendly disagreements and passionate persuasion by team members, we have come up with this list of series to delve into and get lost in – until the days are lighter and the outside world seems more appetising.
- Stranger Things
- The Crown
- Peaky Blinders
- Black Mirror
Why we recommend them:
1.Stranger Things: The Stranger Things kids are incredible, they absolutely make this show, you will be drawn into their word immediately, we miss them so much we are counting down to season 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, self-certify a sick note and spend the next few days catching up, you can thank us later.
2.The Crown: Who doesn’t love anything to do with the Royals?! This Netflix original is fascinating, you really do feel like you are getting to know the Royals like never before and in a completely new light. Surely it passes as educational too – win/win.
3.Peaky Blinders: There are two very good reasons to watch this show – Thomas Shelby’s steely blue eyes, and of course his character and the story line. It is gritty, powerful and absolutely addictive!
4.Poldark: We love a bit of period drama, and whilst we nearly went with Downton Abbey as our choice, we decided to go with something new. Poldark is easy watching, romantic and the perfect series for a bit of escapism.
5.Black Mirror: A thought provoking and dark-take on modern technology, some of the story lines are truly terrifying, though still less so than the dark January nights. We like that it’s a different story line in each episode too, so you never quite know what to expect.
6.Westworld: What a series! The concept is fascinating yet disturbing with twists and turns in nearly every episode, you will not be able to stop watching once you have started. Anthony Hopkins is as terrific as always, worth watching just for his performance alone.
