What to watch on Netflix right now

The best shows to binge-watch during half term

With half term just around the corner, the joyous days of browsing Netflix are nearly upon us. Here are a few recommendations to inspire you and kickstart your holiday! From the classics you really should have seen by now to your friends' current favourites, get some snacks ready and prepare for a marathon.

If you like Riverdale...

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

For the fans of Riverdale, this is a must (especially considering the potential cross-overs)! From the same creators comes an equally dark, equally dramatic, only much witchier show. This dark, engaging show leaves you wanting more.

 

If you like Stranger Things...

Dark

Dubbed the German version of Stranger Things, this foreign supernatural drama follows several families, each with secrets of their own as they deal with an eerie disappearance. Enjoy the twists, turns, and a terrible feeling you can’t shake until you finish the entire season.

 

If you want to watch psychopaths...

The End of the F***ing World

Miraculously, a show about a teenager who’s convinced he is a psychopath and wants to find his first human kill manages to come off as a coming-of-age and love story! Can you empathize with the human struggle of a kid who wants to kill, kill, kill?

YOU

Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley returns, with a crush so great he will use every tool at his disposal to get the girl, going so far as to remove any obstacles (*people*) in his way. Cute or psycho? You decide.

 

For the lovers of moral dilemmas...

The Good Place

Bored and struggling with R.S. or a personal dilemma? Be both entertained and enlightened as you follow the wacky storyline, marvelling at the sets whilst rooting for your favourite bunch!

 

For the horror fanatics...

The Haunting of Hill House

Based on Shirley Jackson's novel of the same name, Hill House is a must-watch for any horror fan looking to get a fix from Netflix's ever-widening horror catalogue.

 

For fans of Elite, and people studying Italian...

Baby

Enter the world of elite Rome, following the lives of two privileged high school kids, Chiara and Ludovica, as they lead shockingly double lives. Feel spirited away to Italy this half-term.

 

If you’re looking to feel better about your cooking abilities...

Nailed It

If you do decide to attempt a Pinterest masterpiece this holiday, only to end up with a slop, fear not! Nailed It is here to boost broken egos and entertain, filled with non-chefs decidedly not nailing it. Dig in!
