Netflix and Chill: My Top Fives

I'm sure you're reading this as you are an avid Netflixer like myself - so today I'm sharing my all time favourite films, shows and essentials with you. This means you're not missing out on the best of UK Netflix picks and you can share with me your ultimate faves so I can add even more to my list! I'm more of a binge watching series kind of girl but there are plenty of amazing films not to be missed on Netflix too! This post is in collaboration with Panasonic, and I was more than happy to do a post with them as our Panasonic tv is the bomb for watching Netflix! And yes I know what Netflix and Chill really means guys, come on.

Top 5 Movie Picks

Step Brothers
A Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly classic. When two middle age lazy men who still live at home become step brothers, things can get a little crazy. It's silly and down right outrageous, one of my favourite Ferrell films for sure.

Enternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind
Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey - already a winner am I right? A really unique science fiction drama, looking upon a couple who decide to erase their memories of one another...

Does this even need a description; a balloon flying house, a talking dog and a grumpy old man, what's not to love?

About Time
This film is a beautiful story of a man who can time travel and how he uses this to win over Rachel McAdams.

Seven Pounds
A heart wrenching drama featuring Will Smith with a deep secret, make sure you have tissues at hand because it's a heart breaker. I haven't watched this for years so this is definitely on my film list to watch really soon!

Top 5 TV Shows

Breaking Bad
Definitely my ultimate top pick of Netflix. It may be long but every episode is so worth it (apart from the fly episode - let me know if you know which one I mean!). I'm sure you probably know the plot line already but if not; Walter White finds out he has terminal cancer and realising his family will be in financial struggle, he decides to create a meth lab in his RV with a former student. It gets cray.

I was addicted to this series and yes you do kind of fall in love with a serial killer but don't worry he only kills bad people...Who else was broken by the ending?

Orange Is The New Black
A Netlix Original, and one of its finest. Piper ends up in an all female prison when a past crime catches up with her. The series looks upon drama in the prison as well as revealing inmates pasts; it gets emotional.

American Horror Story
I'm still on Coven, I know sorry - but this still deserved a place in my top 5! I've kind of got lost in other series along the way but if you love something a little freaky this one's for you. Each season is a different setting with different characters however all feature the same actors.

An English TV show about teenagers and their individual stories involving love, family and traumas. Series one to four are the best!

  4. Love Orphan Black! Yep the ending of Dexter pretty much killed me, and that damn fly episode of Breaking Bad just goes on forever!

  5. Thanks for the recommendations - I am always trying to discover new things to watch on Netflix - the only thing is that what is available on Netflix definitely does depend on where you live - Netflix in the US is different than Netflix in the UK for example. It's not usually too big of an issue, but I started a series when I was home in the states a few weeks ago and wanted to watch it when I returned to Germany and wasn't able to :( Oh and I am also currently watching Gossip Girl for like probably the 5th time. Curently on the 2nd to last season and will watch it all over again when I finish it all, haha. Such a guilty pleasure of mine.

  6. you've just got me excited for cosy winter days with netflix! Great suggestions (and your dog is adorbs!)

  7. The end of Dexter destroyed me too! I was so in love with the show, it's everything I look for in a series but just no. I'm loving American Horror Story at the moment and I'm starting Vampire Diaries from the beginning. I love anything a little dark and creepy. x

  13. I absolutely love this post! Although... I don't even have Netflix... But this post allowed me to pretend that I do, and now I feel great haha In all seriousness, I am honestly considering getting Netflix now!

  14. Breaking Bad and Dexter were two of the best shows I've seen! I have Netflix and am so happy I do, it's perfect for fall and winter days where all you want to do is cozy up in bed and watch some tv. You are going to love Narcos if you liked Dexter and Breaking bad, I finished it so quickly and can't wait for the next season! xo

  15. Oh my goodness! I love so many of these!
    About Time and Seven Pounds broke my heart so so much, definitely films I won't ever forget!

  23. I'm super excited to start Narcos! I speed watched (is that a thing?) all the seasons of AHS and I'm now up to date with Hotel! Keep watching, it's so worth it, though Asylum is still my fave season! I couldn't really get into Breaking Bad though. Great post, Hannah! x
