6 Of The Best Shows To Watch On Netflix Right Now

If you’re following me on Instagram, you might have seen me binge watching a couple of Netflix shows in the past few weeks. I always have my moods – there are weeks in which I don’t access my Netflix account at all, and then there are weeks where I watch entire seasons in one day. So for today’s post, I thought I’d show you the 6 best shows to watch on Netflix right now (in my opinion at least).

1. RIVERDALE

I’m not going to lie, my Friday evenings have been made at least 100 times better by Riverdale. I started this show because everyone’s been raving about it on Twitter and the curious person that I am, I naturally had to find out what all the fuss was about. I immediately fell in love. What started out as your typical high school drama á la Gossip Girl (I mean come on – V is totally channeling Blair Waldorf), quickly turned into a nerve-wracking hunt for murder. Watching Riverdale along with all the others on twitter and engaging in the theories as to who might be the culprit is so much fun, too.

2. 13 REASONS WHY

Oh, the mandatory one. If you haven’t watched 13 Reasons Why you must have missed out on all the talk and memes in the past few weeks. I read the book a couple of years back and didn’t like it at all. The show, however, was really good. The changes they made to the show were absolutely brilliant and made the whole thing so much more relatable (in the book it’s kinda pathetic tbh). I’m not entirely sure about the second season, though. There’s only one book so why do we need another season? Apart from Netflix milking the money cow, that is.

3. GIRLBOSS

Some people loved it – some hated it. And I gotta admit, Sophia isn’t your usual girl next door. She’s loud, she’s bold, and she just doesn’t give a shit. Yes, she is a bitch sometimes but I found her beautifully down to earth and real. Not everyone’s all sugar and spice and everything nice. The show’s been so much fun to watch while cooking, cleaning, and eating, for me. Sophia’s story is the ultimate American dream of pulling oneself up by the bootstraps and that’s utterly motivating to watch, I think.

4. SENSE8

IT’S FINALLY BACK. Sense8 is the ultimate example for watching an entire season in one day and then having to wait two years for the next one to come out. I haven’t started watching Season 2 yet but am determined to sit down and watch it all after my exam on Thursday. Sense8 follows the lives of eight people in eight different countries and how their stories slowly follow into another by some kind of mental linkage. They then must find a way to survive being hunted by those who see them as a threat to the world’s order.  It’s beautifully shot, has amazing casting, and is just so exciting to watch. Definitely, something that you need to add to your Netflix list.

5. MAD MEN

When I asked you guys about Netflix suggestions a couple of weeks back, this show has been recommended to me at least a million times (no exaggeration haha). You’ve all told me how thrilling it is, how beautiful the cinematography is and I have to admit, you’ve been right. I’m only in season one but already really like following the story of Don Draper, a successful executive in one of New York’s most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960s. A drama that sure as hell will you suck you into its world full of sexism, racism, and all the things that will make you outrageous and mystified by how much our lives and values changed in the past decades.

6. THE OA

Admittedly, I’ve watched the OA a couple of weeks back already. However, I’ve been thinking about it on a daily basis ever since I finished it. It’s one of the most amazing and confusing shows I’ve ever watched and I’m still not sure as what to think about the ending. The OA tells the story of a blind girl, Prairie, who returns back home after having gone missing seven years prior. Now in her 20s, with her sight miraculously restored, she tells the story of what happened to her, where she’s been, and what magical powers she possesses. SO GOOD, seriously.

What are you currently watching on Netflix? Any favourites you might want to share?

  • I really need/want to watch “13 reasons why” because everybody here talks about it – and kids in schools are being counselled because the series is said to increase their suicidal rate :-/

      • Yes, it has. The show didn’t follow any of the guidelines put out by mental health professionals about the safe display of suicides. Therefore it already has resulted in copy-cat suicides and will likely continue to do so. The show was a cheap mockery of suicidal thoughts and has a lot to answer for – namely, the deaths of many teenagers.

        • Oh wow that is so sad. I guess i was very much biased here because I have read the book a couple of years back and am consider myself old enough not to be influenced by a tv show in that way anymore. But I do see that it might have a really bad influence on young teenagers. crazy.

  • Ich habe noch so viele Serien auf meiner Liste stehen, so auch Riverdale und 13 Reasons why. Aber ich schaue momentan noch Suits und Prison Break und eigentlich auch noch die letzte Staffeln von Pretty Little Liars und ich glaube ich kann nicht noch eine Serie dazu packen sonst werde ich mit keiner jemals fertig :D Aber deine Wahl ist auf jeden Fall total nach meinem Geschmack ;)

  • I loved 13 reasons why and riverdale. I am going to watch girlboss soon once I have finished some other tv programmes. I nave seen sense 8 but never thought to give it a go so I will do. The OA I literally think about on a daily basis. It still baffles me and I can’t wait for season 2!

    • Ja oder? Ich hab von so vielen Seiten gehört das sie absolut unsympathisch ist. Finde ich aber überhaupt nicht um ehrlich zu sein. Sie ist halt echt. xx

  • I absolutely loved 13 Reasons Why! I’m not sure what they could do with season 2 though, but let’s be honest, I’m definitely going to watch it, haha. And Sense8 is my FAVE! I just finished watching season 2 and it’s just SO. GOOD! So much better than the first season! (if that’s even possible) With that last episode, I cannot wait for season 3!

  • I’ve heard of Riverdale but have not yet watched it! I actually don’t really watch TV, which may be strange.. I’ve always loved books and have stuck to them lately. Thank you for the list! This photo is so beautiful by the way, I love the black and white!

  • Hallo!

    Das sind echt tolle Serienvorschläge, bin derzeit auf der Suche nach einer neuen Serie die ich “süchteln” kann :P.

    Riverdale und Girlboss habe ich noch nicht gesehen, aber schon von Beiden total viel gehört und will sie mir unbedingt ansehen. Nachdem ich erst vor kurzem Gossip Girl einmal komplett angesehen habe, also alle Staffeln, habe ich noch nichts gefunden, was ungefähr an die Serie rankommt in Bezug auf den Faktor “Ich- muss-unbedingt-wissen-wie-es-weiter-geht”. Mal sehen welche Serie dies als nächstes schafft.

    LG,
    Nina
