my (ongoing) Netflix recommendations list

My Netflix account has logged MANY hours since 2020. Currently I am in-between series and have yet to commit to a new one. Before diving into a new series with a plate of cookies, I wanted to share (maybe exchange) a list of Netflix show/series recommendations that I have really enjoyed.

Watched show List


  • Think Pride and Prejudice meets Gossip Girl
  • I never do this, but I may actually watch it once more before the second season is released. In case you’re wondering if I actually enjoyed the series.
  • However, I will say that the main character has her moments and I wouldn’t blame anyone who accidentally tripped her.

Cable Girls

  • Takes Place in metropolitan Spain during the late 1920s
  • Dubbed in English, would suggest watching with subtitles too
  • Love, sex and your daily dose of scandal

Emily in Paris

  • Love the concept, can’t stand her! As per the words of my uncle, “she’s the worst part of the whole show”. I rest my case.
  • Think of it as a cheap knock off of SATC and Gossip Girl
  • That being said, I watched the entire first and second season and will shamelessly watch the third one. I may be missing Paris… and Milan.

Gossip Girl

  • Labels and love, nearly a Sex and the City prerequisite
  • An upper east sider refresher for the upcoming HBO Reboot
  • Blair or Sabrina?

Grand Hotel

  • Situated in a luxurious Spanish hotel between 1905 and 1910
  • Can only watch with subtitles unless you’re fluent in Spanish (I am not)
  • Ruthless suspense meets passion + romance

Next in Fashion

  • Unlike Project Runway, the designers are already established in their fashion careers
  • Tan France makes up for the lack of Christian Siriano
  • I would watch the second season if released

Peaky Blinders

  • Begins on the cusp of the 1920s in England
  • A little bit of everything: politics, war, family business, gangsters, gypsies, revenge, sex, gambling… even diamonds
  • If I were quarantined back home, Dad and I would be watching this with JD

The Great Canadian Baking Show

  • As co-host, Dan Levy is the cherry on top of season one
  • Warning, you may crave cake or feel like an inadequate baker… or both!
  • Would love if Netflix would also post the original British version

The Queen’s Gambit 

  • The main character and her story is certainly intriguing
  • Trust me, you do not have to be an avid chess player to understand what is going on
  • Pretty much an underdog story, but with chess and an unexpected touch of glamour.
