I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, Netflix is bae. Despite having taken an oath to read more and spend some me-time this new year, I’ve also come to the realisation that an occasional TV Show binge doesn’t really hurt! I spent the last few weeks watching some of the most iconic and loveable TV shows on this platform, and let me tell you —there’s some amazing content on there! Here is a list of six shows I’m currently binge-watching and you should too:
I’m normally not a fan of reality TV, but this TV show had me completely hooked. The characters took part in a dating experiment, where they speed dated each other without ever seeing the ones they dated. In the end, they had to choose a partner to marry and only once they accepted the proposal and got engaged, would they finally see their partners for the first time.
Post an injury, figure skater Kat Baker is given an opportunity to restart her career and fulfil her Olympic dream whilst meeting Justin Davis, a fellow ice-skater that she gives her heart to.
One of my favourite YA movies is this one! The prequel had me reeling after Peter Kavinsky, so this sequel definitely lived up to its expectations as Lara Jean has to decide between Peter and John Ambrose. Which team are you on?
Teenagers. Sex. Hormones. This TV show is all things these. When an awkward teenager named Otis helps his classmates navigate their sexuality by assuming the proverbial role of a sex therapist.
Based on the stellar novel of the same name, this movie is a tear-jerker for sure. Grab some tissues as you get ready to fall in love with Violet and Finch’s love story.

All the Bright Places (2020) – USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) The latest Netflix original romantic drama “All the Bright Places” is a good one and one about the often forgotten topic of mental heath for people growing up. Director Brett Haley successfully balanced the drama with plenty of realistic bouts of mental illness and almost certainly the brighter and darker times through its two beautifully captured main characters. This film shows the power of love and positive mindset can actually make a difference in one’s life. The always wonderful Elle Fanning and rising star Justice Smith are pitch perfect as the flawed yet intriguing characters and lovers. Elle Fanning is particular shines as she goes from wrecked and lost souls on the verge of jumping the bridge after the death of her sister. Justice Smith shows the inner demons and how he tries so hard to bury it all as he goes about life in a positive manner. Luke Wilson is wonderful as the father of Elle. All in all, “All the Bright Places” is a delightful and tragic romantic drama that depicts the brutal reality of mental illness and how it affects everyone of all ages. The film shows the effect on teenagers and how they try their best to overcome and bury it in their own ways. Life is not easy and dealing with emotions is always a difficult aspect. Scripted based on the novel by Jennifer Niven, this is a beautifully crafted film that show the power of caring, taking the extra step and ultimately how love can overcome certain challenges. We can all make a difference to those around us and this film depicts it wonderfully. I rated it 8/10
Probably my favourite of the list is this thriller TV show. Three siblings move into their father’s pre-ancestral home after the latter’s death. Little do they know that there are keys hidden in various hideouts around the house that is bound to stir up some trouble.
Which of these shows will you binge-watch? Lemme know below!
