I fully admit that I have been a little bit Netflix obsessed lately. I am planning on getting rid of my cable (again) at the end of May because my contract is up and I haven’t watched actual TV in forever. I have no shame in admitting that literally everything I watch has been something I have streamed via Netflix.
So being the semi-good blogger that I am today I thought I would share with you what I’ve been watching on Netflix! And PLEASE tell me what you are watching in the comments below!
13 Reasons Why. Not going to lie. I have been anticipating this show for a while now. I read online a while ago that Selena Gomez was producing this project and I read what it was about and was super intrigued. I binge watched the show in a couple of days and was just so shocked when it was over. 13 Reasons Why is super intense, for a lack of better wording.
I get that the book was over at that point but I feel like there were so many loose ends that need to be tied up! No, I’m not going to give away any spoilers but I will say that a lot of people have mixed feelings about this show. I think you either love it or hate it and I, for one, loved it. I think it talked about suicide in a very non-glamorous way, I feel like a lot of people (who probably haven’t even seen the show) thought that it glamorized teen suicide and I thought it did the opposite. The way those kids treated Hannah was very disturbing and the fact that she reached out to so many and no one helped her it just sad. Watch it. It’s good, I promise.
Jane the Virgin. Y’all. I needed a laugh in my post-13 Reasons world and this show provided just that, lots of laughter! Is it weird that I tell you that my Dad recommended it to me? He always watches the best shows, HA! Jane the Virgin is a really good story and has plenty of drama!! I am seriously in love with all of the characters and can’t wait until season 3 comes to Netflix! So after you finish 13 Reasons and need a fluff show then watch this! It’s so good!!
Parenthood. I feel like everyone on the planet has watched this show except for me and now that I am finally in the midst of watching I can honestly say that I GET IT. I completely understand what all the fuss is about. I actually read Lauren Graham’s book, Talking as Fast as I Can, and knew that I had to watch it and it has lived up to every expectation I had for it. This is a fantastic family show that I have fallen in love with. I get it people, I really do. Parenthood, it’s #GOALS
House of Cards. Confession. I watched the first season of HOC last year and wasn’t that into it. I finally watched the second season and it’s getting better…very full of drama and political scandal and just plain ole good TV. I really want to finish it before the next season comes out so I can watch it with my friends. Let’s see if I can make that happen!!
Hart of Dixie. So I actually started this series when it was on TV a few years ago and then stopped for some reason. So now I am watching it again and falling in love with Bluebell Alabama all over again. Since I’ve seen the first few seasons I am watching it as I blog right now and it makes for fantastic background entertainment, HA!!
And of course I can’t talk about Netflix without talking about shows I can’t wait to watch. It’s almost time for Orange is the New Black and of course, my FAVE, Kimmy Schmidt!!!!
So tell me, what are you watching on Netflix??
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
13 Reasons Why is an amazing show. I’m currently in the middle of an epic binge.
Bill Sweeney says
Thanks for sharing these with us. My wife and I are currently watching 13 Reasons Why, and it’s incredibly good. I’m thinking House of Cards should be next.
Katie Kinsley says
I just finished watching 13 Reasons Why and it is so much better than the book. I can’t wait to watch more Kimmy!
Good ol’ Netflix, they have so much to watch (so many good choices!) I watched Parenthood and loved it… might watch it all again : ) I’ll have to try a few others you mentioned!
Sarah Bailey says
I cannot wait for Kimmy to come back on Netflix it always has me giggling when it is on.
Marcie W. says
Love your awesome list of show selections! Parenthood will forever be one of my all time favorites and we just finished all 7 seasons of Malcolm in the Middle.
Jaclyn House says
13 Reasons Why is on my list! My husband and I are watching Better Call Saul, The Iron Fist and House of Cards! I’m watching Red Road and Frontier and binged on TVD!! Netflix recently released season 1 of Greenleaf which is AMAZING!
Mimi Green says
I’m so ready for the next season of Orange is the New Black and Kimmy Schmidt. They are total extremes of the spectrum but I love them both. That Titus gives me life.
Christy Maurer says
I’m the same about Hart of Dixie. I loved the first couple of seasons and then quit watching…I need to start over and get back into their lives!
Claudia Krusch says
Jane the Virgin is one of my favorite shows. We have been binge watching Stranger Things this week. Netflix has an amazing selection for the whole family.
Kelly Hutchinson says
So many of my favorites binge shows are on your list! I could watch Parenthood over and over again. I am on the last episode of 13 Reasons. I have mixed emotions about it, but it was well done. At least that is my opinion.
Joely Smith says
Wow I am not watching ANY of those! Not yet anyway. My husband and I are TV junkies though and we have a ton on Netflix we do watch :)
Oh, i love Jane the Virgin. It wasa fun and family-oriented show. I also think all of these shows are great. I’m checking out 13 reasons why. Awesome!
Tiara Wilson says
YES for Hart of Dixie and Jane the Virgin. Those are some of my absolutely favorite TV shows! <3
Karlyn Cruz says
Wow! It provides many benefits including no commitments, online streaming and many different movies and television shows available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With Netflix, a user can watch TV shows and movies anytime and anywhere.
13 Reasons Why was so intense, but I feel like it’s so necessary for everyone to watch. Having lost a loved one to suicide, it’s very near and dear to my heart. The sad thing is that this happens all of the time so I hope that people watch it and learn something from it.
I watched 2 seasons of Jane The Virgin and I can’t wait until the next season is out on Netflix. I am so serious about watching it, I might just buy it!
I also just finished The Crown and oh my gosh. So GOOD!
There is nothing better than a night spent binge watching Netflix. I love Parenthood so that would be my pick of your list!
Carol Bryant says
13 Reasons Why is on our must watch list. You just reminded me to reactivate my account. There is something so fun about binge watching. I love Parenthood, too.
Rebecca Swenor says
These are some really good shows. I will have to watch 13 Reasons because I haven’t seen it and it does sound interesting. House of Cards is a good one that I watched last summer. The Crown is good too. I was told that think it was my great great grandfather was exiled from the England royalty because of his wife. My family history sounds so much like the drama in Crown. Thanks for sharing these awesome movies.
victoria heckstall says
Netflix has some movies you will not find showing on cable channels, but they are cutting back their movie selection.
My daughter keeps telling me I should watch 13 Reasons Why. I’m currently watching Vampire Diaries.
I love watching Netflix. There are so many shows on my list right now that I need to watch. The list keeps going on and on. There are a lot that you have shown that I want to see too.
I’ve never seen any of these yet. I am currently watching “Super Girl” on Netflix. I’m waiting for season 8 of TVD too.
Hands down 13 Reason Why is the most buzzworthy show out on Netflix. I did a post on it and my thoughts I think it was an amazing show so emotional, realistic but just an amazing storyline.
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
I am about ready to cut the cable cord myself actually. I have been watching quite a few shows on Netflix as I got it recently and much like you the few moments I have to even watch anything it’s been Netflix. I like that I don’t have to watch commercials like with Video on Demand on Cable, you still have to watch commercials which I HATE, so Netflix has been winning out for me big time!
I’ve never had cable, I just watch shows through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and the subscriptions add-on from time to time of Starz, Showtime and HBO. I like a good drama like House of Cards–each season just gets better and better. I started Jane the Virgin and Unbreakable and disliked them both.
Ellen H says
Just finished The Blacklist; James Spader is one awesome character! We loved Last Man Standing ~ full of political humor that leans our way (to the right!). We’re watching Life in Pieces, which is hilarious. Just picked up GirlBoss, which is either pretty great or horrible, depending on the episode. Can’t wait for more Blue Bloods and Longmire, ’cause they’re great shows! In the past, some favorites included Gilmore Girls, Dexter, The Good Witch, Walking Dead (loves us some zombies!). . . the list is endless!
We lost interest in Person of Interest; the episodes became repetitive and predictable, as with CSI: Miami. David Caruso’s character is simply laughable! Could NOT get into House of Cards, after 2 attempts.
Yeah…I think I’m finished with House of Cards. I tried to like it, I really did but I just can’t get into it!!
