Fall TV is still a month off and if you are like me, your Hulu Plus queue is finally empty and the amount of movies you want to see at Redbox is dwindling quickly. By this point in the summer I am almost always looking for what to watch next. You might remember that two years ago I cut the cord and do not have cable so this time of year I turn to Netflix.
Having been a Netflix fan for years I watch as ton of content – mainly TV shows as I always needed to put something on that I only need to half pay attention to while I respond to emails, research ideas, draft posts, and read other blogs. I have amassed quite a list of series I would recommend to binge watch. They include:
- Gilmore Girls
- White Collar
- House of Cards
- Orange is the New Black (if you like that)
- House M.D.
- Grey’s Anatomy (one of my favorites)
- Kitchen Nightmares
- Restaurant Impossible
After you are done with these rom-com or classic shows and are in the mood to a learn a few things from your television there are a four documentaries I recommend. True, there are probably dozens more that should be on this list but as documentaries demand a ton of attention (read: I can not blog while watching them) the list is short. Please let me know if you have any must-watches to add to this list:
- Planet Earth
- Jiro Dreams of Sushi
If movies are more your thing Netflix has a five current movies that I would add to your list:
- The Butler
- The Prince & Me
- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (especially after seeing the exhibit)
And finally, any Netflix must-watch list would be remiss without mentioning a handful of the great classics that everyone should see. Or, if you are like me, 20 times if the movie is Top Gun or Dirty Dancing:
- Cast Away
- Dirty Dancing
- Top Gun
- Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
- Legally Blonde
- Say Anything
If you are going to stream from Hulu, download rentals from the App Store or Play store, stop by Redbox, and or even check out movies from the library here a few of my favorites you can not go wrong with; The Holiday, Love Actually, Sound of Music, Blind Side, Bridget Jones’ Diary or the Italian Job.
What is your top Netflix pick?
