I thought I would switch things up today and do more of a lifestyle type post. I’m sure I’m not the only one who loves to have Netflix marathons (more than I’d like to admit) and I thought I would share some of my favourite television shows of the moment!
I have been completely obsessed with this show since it aired last June. The trailer drew me in instantly (watch here) and I am such a sucker for supernatural shows like this. Everything from the casting, writing and cinematography is just fantastic and every episode just pulls you deeper and deeper into their world. Set in Victorian London, a band of unlikely strangers come together to fight creatures that we can only imagine hide in the shadows at night. You’ll instantly recognize characters such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dracula, and Dorian Gray. I highly recommend checking out this series if you’re a fan of classic monsters and supernatural drama.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this show at first, but it has quickly taken up the second place spot on my favourites list. This show follows Claire Randall, a World War II British army nurse who finds herself transported back in time to 18th century Scotland. I know how it sounds, but believe me when I tell you that you’ll likely be just as enamored with this show as I was after watching a few episodes. She comes across a clan of Highlanders and always seems to find herself in the wrong place at the wrong time as she tries to find her way back home to 1940’s Britain. Not only does she have a knack for getting herself in sticky situations, she also meets an attractive red haired Highlander and finds love unexpectedly thrown her way. I mean, what more do you need?
This new Netflix Original series is based on Marvel’s Daredevil character and had my boyfriend and I hooked from the first episode. Matt Murdock, a lawyer by day and vigilante by night, fights crime through the legal system and outside it. Blinded from an accident in his younger years, Matt finds other ways to see by using his other senses and fights to keep the streets of Hell’s Kitchen safe. Since the first season ended I have been waiting anxiously for season two to arrive. I need to know what happens next!
I know this isn’t a new show to most of you, but I just recently started watching it a month or two ago after stumbling upon it on Netflix. A seemingly normal routine flight from Sydney to Los Angeles takes a terrible turn when it crashes onto a remote island in the middle of nowhere. Having gone off course for hours, search and rescue is looking in all the wrong places and the surviving passengers from the plane scavenge through the wreckage looking for food, supplies and creating shelters until they are rescued. They will be rescued, right? I don’t want to give too much away, but this show has kept me on my toes the entire time! A definite must watch!
