As the days have become more cold and the nights have been getting ever darker, my love for TV, blankets and hot beverages has grown immensely. Sometimes however, I like to watch different shows depending on my mood and so I’ll often have a couple of series on the go at any one time. I don’t watch ‘normal’ television anymore as I find that there is much more series readily available on Netflix and Sky Go. Here are a some of the series that have been ruling my down-time and making the transition into winter a little easier for me of late.

RuPaul’s Drag Race

I started watching this Drag Queen version of America’s Next Top Model show a few weeks ago after a friend of mine said that I should watch it. It is an incredible show; like nothing I have ever seen before. It is the perfect mood lifter and has me laughing, crying, cringing and cheering at the contestants as they are made to complete various challenges. One Drag Queen is eliminated each week  which adds a lot of drama to the show, before a Queen in crowned at the end of the series. The show is hosted by RuPaul and his panel of guest judges who are all as catty and biting as the Queens themselves.  It is a great show that has opened my eyes to the world of Drag and now phrases such as Shade, Fishy and Face are part of my everyday vocabulary.


For lovers of dark, edgy drams with twists, murderers and detectives, this is a must watch. I love having a series on the go that I can really sink my teeth into. I have actually watched this entire season before when it was originally aired on Sky Atlantic. However, five years after the first episode was released it has popped up on Netflix and so I decided to start watching it again. Be warned, this is not a series for the fait heated as there is a fair amount of violence, but I think that it is a great adaptation of the books, acting as a prequel to the more popular story-line of Hannibal.  

Stranger Things

I was a little late to the party on this one, but last weekend James and I watched the entire first series of Stanger Things. There are only eight episodes, but it was such a gripping and unique storyline that we just could not stop watching it. I was initially put off as I am not usually a fan of Si-Fi, much preferring a fully fictional story or a complete non-fiction, I don’t often dabble in the in-between stages. However, I ate my words after the first episode of this series and I am so excited for the next one to made.

Harry Potter

Okay, I know that this is a film series and not a TV series, but it is a series I love to watch nonetheless. The Harry Potter films bring me so much comfort and I love making my living room nice and cosy, curling up under a blanket, and settling down on a cold dark night. Although I love the books and have read them repeatedly over the years, watching the films gives me such a warm feeling of nostalgia and I could watch them over and over again.
