5 MUST-WATCH SERIES ON NETFLIX



Netflix holds all the cards in the series section these days. They not only stream the best tv shows (like Prison Break or Breaking Bad) but also create the outstanding 'originals'. If you want some recommendations on which shows to watch on Netflix, keep on reading. I chose some of my favourites for today's post

'FARGO'

A spin on the Coen brothers' film from 1996 (also titled 'Fargo'). An award-winning black comedy drama. A psychotic villain  Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) randomly meets a lame duck Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) in a hospital. Lester broke his nose when he ran into his childhood bully, Hess. Lorne suggests killing Hess. The Death settles in the cities of Duluth and Bemidji,  Minnesota. Police officer Gus (Colin Hanks) and deputy Molly (Allison Tolman) have their hands full for a while. 
The second season takes us 27 years back, but I won't tell you more about it because I don't want to spoil it. All I can say is that it is as bleak and as funny as the first season!

'Grace and Frankie'

The most funny and uplifiting series ever. Wonderfully acted. It is a story about two couples in their 70s facing the hurricane of their lifetimes! And it all starts with an announcement- the men decide to leave their wives and start a new life together. This could be a plot for an Oscar-winning drama/tearjerker. But it is an uplifting comedy starring phenomenal actors such as Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, Sam Waterston. I can not wait for the 4th season (Dear Spring 2018, please come soon!). You can read my full review here.

'Prison Break'

One of the best series ever made. Written to perfection gripping TV drama. A story about lawlessness, brotherhood, hope and courage. I promise that you won't turn off your laptop until you finish watching at least the first season! The story begins when a genius engineer Michael (Wentworth Miller) commits crime and gets sentenced to the Fox River penitentiary. This is where his brother, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) awaits his execution for killing a brother of Vice President of United States. Michael is planning an escape. 
Prison Break is full of twists and surprises, great action and fantastic characters. A must on your 'what to watch' list! Seasons 1-4 are available on Netflix

'Anne with an e'

The most sublime version of 'Anne of Green Gables'. Everybody knows the story of a red-haired orphan, and everybody needs to watch this series. 'Anne with an e' is beautifully made. You'll enjoy watching it from the opening (perfectly done!) to the closing.  Amybeth McNulty is phenomenal as a pride and garrulous Anne. If you're interested to read more about it, my full review is here.

'Cable Girls'

A story about women working at the telephone company, set in 1928 Madrid. The series talks about feminism and gender equality. And about all that women are able to do to become free. 

You get it all in here- drama, love, love-drama, murder, abuse, gunshots, friendships, beauty, motherhood. And fantastic costumes! I fell in love with Blanca Suarez after watching the 'Cable Girls'! A must watch it if women empowerment is close to your heart.
