I feel like as soon as November comes around, I turn into a hermit. Outside it’s cold, wet, windy, and my least favourite thing about this time of year – it gets dark super early. I don’t know about you, but as soon as the darker evenings draw in, I’m reluctant to leave the house and all I want to do is snuggle up in front of the TV.
In collaboration with Panasonic and their Ultra HD Premium TVs, this post brings you the 5 series at the top of my ‘to-watch’ list for this chilly season, which are totally cuppa-tea and PJ-day worthy.
The Confession Tapes
I’m a tad obsessed with crime series, and The Confession Tapes has been saved to my watch list on Netflix for a while, but I’ve lacked the time to commit to this series and fully absorb what’s going on – I’ve heard it’s pretty addictive and keeps you on edge! The Confession Tapes follows 6 true stories of people who have been pressured into confessing for crimes they did not commit and therefore wrongfully convicted. After becoming very very invested in the storyline in Making a Murderer (no spoilers on that here, I promise) I feel like this is a perfect follow-on series to invest some time into.
Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father
Being a big fan of Jack, adding this to my to-watch lost was a no-brainer. Two seasons of this show follows comedian Jack Whitehall and his father Micheal on a ‘gap year’ style trip across South-East Asia and Europe. Whilst learning about and being educationally valuable for the places they visit, it’s been compared to An Idiot Abroad which definitely makes the series my cup of tea.
A friend and I were reminiscing the other day about the shows we used to watch when we’d come home from school – and for me, it was either Friends or Gilmore Girls (shout out to E4 for showing them back to back for years on end). That kind of got me craving a re-watch of all 7 seasons of the Gilmore Girls, and I feel this is the perfect time of year to do so. It’s a series that will make you sing, laugh and cry, but best of all it’s a show that I always felt gave that sweet fuzzy feeling inside while watching. Perfect for a snuggly day on the sofa with a hot chocolate.
The Haunting of Hill House
There’s been a big buzz about this series on Twitter since it’s release in early October, and from the trailer, it’s easy to see why. But I have to admit I’m a total wuss when it comes to things with even the smallest amount of suspense or horror! Based on a novel by Shirley Jackson, we follow the story of siblings who grew up in a house which came to be one of the most haunted houses in the country. Returning to the house as adults, the siblings are forced to confront ghosts of their past. With fans describing this series as dark and intense – I can already predict it’s going to make me squeamish!
Interior design has been a love of mine since I was young. Whilst most girls wanted to be princesses or ballerinas when they grew up, I wanted to decorate peoples houses. Grand Designs has always been one of my favourite shows, so when I stumbled across Amazing Interiors on Netflix, I knew it would be something I’d enjoy. For many of the houses featured in the series, the term ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ really applies. Seemingly plain and standard houses on the outside, the home’s interiors have been done up to really give the wow factor. Seemingly a nice and easy watch, there are only 12 episodes in the series, so I don’t expect it will take me long to get through them.
If you’ve beaten me to watching any of these shows, let me know what you thought of them! What’s on your to-watch list?
