Yes I’m a TV addict and I’m always looking for a brand new shows to watch! Here’s 10 best shows to watch that I highly, highly recommend!
With different themes and genres – from comedy, sexuality, teens, technology or just dark – these 10 shows are what I’ve been binge-watching lately.
Some shows are great to watch with your kids and some are not. But with thrills and suspense and of course the popularity, these shows will not allow you to push the off button until they’re over! So, here are the top 10 shows to watch on Netflix this February 2019!
My Rating: 9/10
Stars: Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa
Otis is an awkward kid living with his single mother (Anderson) who is a sex therapist. Although Otis is inexperienced in all things sex, he has learned a thing or two from Mamma Bear over the years. When he starts getting paid to assist students with their sexual problems, a whole new set of problems come out.
Stand Out: Gillian Anderson is epic, Asa Butterfield is the epitome of the cute awkward nerd, but the true stand out is Ncuti Gatwa. When he smiles – the whole screen lights up and his character is hilarious!
My Rating: 7/10
Stars: Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail
A stalker with a dark past sees the aspiring writer Beck, and becomes obsessed with her. He uses his stalking skills to spy on her and use it to his advantage, killing any adversary in his path. It is scary, unsettling, uncomfortable and totally addictive. It does tend to get a bit silly towards to end of the season and I keep getting Gossip Girl vibes.
Stand Out: Penn Badgley as Joe – you can’t help but like him – even though he is a psychopath.
My Rating: 7/10
Stars: Daniel Farrier
I’m pretty morbid, so I love stuff like this. It is a documentary hosted by New Zealander Daniel Farrier who is a very awkward gay man who is so likeable and equally as morbid. Daniel travels the globe exploring the world’s most morbid places. He spends time with Pablo Escobar’s hitman, to the radioactive area of Fukushima. He goes where no one would choose to go.
Stand Out: The episode on the underground of Paris.
My Rating: 9/10
Stars: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner
If you haven’t seen Season One of Ozark, book out a weekend and watch it back-to-back. This is probably my favourite show Netflix has produced. A family moves to the Ozark to escape the fact they are broke, but inadvertently get caught up with a Mexican Drug Cartel. The family starts laundering money for the cartel to stay alive. In fact, to stay alive – they need to launder $500 million dollars in five years. It is dark, sometimes complicated – but a fantastic story.
Stand Out: Julia Garner who plays Ruth.
My Rating: 10/10
True Crime is very in at the moment – and nothing will get you in as much as this series. It follows six different cases, each have already gone to trial and the defendant has been found guilty and they are in jail. You see real life footage, hear from the criminals themselves, the lawyers and family members. Find out the back-stories to all the crimes, why they happened and what the motives were. The most in-depth real life crime show ever.
Stand Out: The first two episodes are on the triple murders of the Rafay family – and after seeing this, I truly believe they are innocent.
My Rating: 9/10
Bad people accidentally get admitted to ‘The Good Place’ – but is it really Heaven? If they want to stay, they need to learn how to be good, but can they change? This show is so quirky and different – nothing like I’ve seen before – so of course I love it. It has a great story line, short episodes and is just different!
Stars: Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, William Jackson Harper
Stand Out: Kristen Bell is funny – but Jameela Jamil is the stand out as Tahani.
Stars: Daniel Lapaine, Hannah John-Kamen, Michaela Coel
Everything happens for a reason, or so it’s not. Black Mirror shows futuristic high technology and when abused could lead to human insanity. Every episode has a different setting, set in the present, or in the future. The show has been running since 2011 and has since then given a mind-blowing scenarios in each episode! Be sure to watch it, it may be evil themed but it’s worth the thrill!
Stand out episode: Season 1, Episode 3: The History of You
Cast: Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Victoria Hamilton
Being a queen is not always royalty, that’s what The Crown tells us about. This Netflix show tells us about the life of Queen Elizabeth II. From her marriage to Prince Philip to ascending the throne and meeting a lot of conflict in politics, family and even her marriage. Every episode shows her life struggles and how she makes her choices which is essential for a ruler. That was so hard
Stand out Episode: Verganheit, episode 6
Cast: Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews
Comedy in the midst of crime is one of the best tandems you want to laugh your gut out! Watch how a talented, immature with a carefree attitude NYPD detective Jake Peralta handles every investigation with his colleagues and the newly appointed serious Captain Raymond Hult.
Stand out Episode: #8 The Oolong Slayer
Cast: Pedro Pascal, Wagner Moura, Boyd Holbrook
The fist (and best) season of Narcos is based on the true story of Pablo Escobar, a Drug Lord who became a billionaire in the 1970s. Narcos shows a thrill and chase in the drug world of Colombia. It starts with Pablo in the late 1970s and the investigation of the DEA, his capture and the closing of his drug empire. Not recommended to watch if you’re with your kids!
Stand Out Episode: Al Fin Cayó!, episode 10
