Five on Friday - 5 Shows I'm Currently Watching on Netflix

I am a bit late to the Netflix bandwagon! So, I have a load of series and movies I need to catch up on! Here are the five shows I've either just finished watching or in the middle of!

Shadowhunters - The Mortal Instruments 

I read all the books except the last one so I was curious about the show. I haven't seen the movie, it apparently flopped and if it's anything like this show I understand why! The show is actually not that good, but because I love the Shadowhunter world I'm stuck watching it!!

Fuller House

I watched most of the series in one sitting! I grew up watching Full House and I can't help, but love this. Yes it's a bit cheesy and all goody goody, but I can't help but think we need a bit more of that in the world.

The Ranch

As a huge fan of That 70's Show (see previous post) when I saw that Danny Masterson and Ashton Kutcher were to be reunited in this made for Netflix series I just had to watch. It's about a prodigal son returned to help out on the family ranch. A different kind of show and I hope there is a second season!

Mako Mermaids

My girls really wanted to watch this show and I was all "Ugh, it looks terrible." However, I spent one Saturday night watching the last four episodes of season 1 with the girls because we, me included, just had to know does Zac takeover Mako Island? Does the pod return? I have refrained from watching season 2 as I was sucked in once and didn't want to get sucked in again!

Him & Her

A series that really focuses on the characters and they are loveable and completely outrageous. I started watching this on TV, but never caught all of them and now they are all in one place! Steve and Becky live in a bedsit and most of the show takes place in that bedsit with their friends and family coming in and out bring drama and comedy with them! I can't wait to get through the seasons!!

Classic shows that I love:

  • That 70's Show
  • TMNT
  • Buffy
  • Arrested Development 

On my too watch list:

  • Once Upon a Time 
  • Firefly
  • Daredevil
  • Jessica Jones
  • Orange is the New Black
  • Making a Murderer 
  • Between
  • Scream (the series)

Series I wish were on Netflix

  • Ugly Betty 
  • Angel
  • Felicity 
  • Coupling 

And one show I don't have to wish for: Gilmore Girls! I am so looking forward to the reunion!

  1. OMG. You MUST watch Firefly! It's one of my favourites EVER!

    Jessica Jones was also a really strong show. I went into that one with no expectations and was really surprised at how much I liked it.

    1. Started watching Firefly and I love it!!! Jessica Jones might be next!! ;)
