I know how annoying it can get to be scrolling for hours trying to find the perfect TV show or movie to watch on Netflix, so I have made it easier for you. I narrowed down a few of my favorite movies/ TV shows on Netflix, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
So let’s begin with TV shows:
The Office (U.S)- 9 Seasons, completed
A documentary style show, one of my all time favorite shows starring Steve Carell. Feeling down? This show will bring you back up on your feet with its witty humor.
Grey’s Anatomy- 12 Seasons, on-air
A medical drama focusing on the life of Meredith Grey. This one’s a tear jerker, so get your tissues out and get ready for some real tears.
Lost- 6 Seasons, completed
Survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 struggle to live on a deserted island where they face problems and find out they are not alone. In the end, the characters have all met or been in a situation before once in their life so it was only fate that brought them all together. The show ends in a confusingly, yet amazing plot twist; but I won’t ruin it for you.
Heroes- 4 Seasons, completed
A show where regular people (or they thought) come together to save New York from danger. The show continues to follow up with their lives. If you’re a plot-twist lover, I can assure you, there are plot-twists in almost every episode. Heroes ended over five years ago but is now back on T.V with a new cast as Heroes Reborn, but in my opinion, the original show is much better.
Breaking Bad- 5 Seasons, completed
Walter White, a chemistry teacher who was recently diagnosed with cancer gets together with a former student to cook up some drugs. The show continues with their ongoing challenges.
Bates Motel- 3 Seasons, on-going
After Norma Bates’ husband dies, the family moves to a new city and open up a motel. The show was inspired by 1960’s horror film “Psycho,” and what happened before that.
Parks and Recreation- 7 seasons, completed
Leslie Knope dreamed of becoming a mayor but her position was in the Recreation Department, and she loved it. The comedic show follows Leslie and her co-workers life and it is truly an addicting show.
Dexter- 8 Seasons, completed
The show follows the life of a blood spatter analysts from Miami who turns out to be a serial killer. Dexter Morgan lives by his fathers rules, and since he is high up in the department, he has access to criminal’s files making it easier for him to kill the bad people.
Once Upon a Time- 5 Seasons, on-going

And now on to the movies:
Forrest Gump- 1994
The movie follows on Forrest Gump’s, (Tom Hanks) life. Forrest who is in love with his childhood best friend, Jenny, has to face the challenges of his life and hers. It’s a sweet movie that will leave you with a few too many tears, but totally worth the watch.
Bruce Almighty- 2003
Now as for this classic comedy starring Jim Carrey, Bruce is always complaining about his life to God until he finally meets him and gets the chance to change it.

The Sixth Sense- 1999
Cole Sear has been haunted with the ability to see dead people. Child psychologist Dr. Malcolm, helps him overcome his fear. The end of the movie is one big plot-twist, the biggest one I’ve ever seen if you ask me. It’s one you will not notice throughout the movie and will blow your mind in the last two minutes of the movie.
One Day- 2011
A movie starring Anne Hathaway where two best friends reunite on the 15th of every July, but it takes them a while to finally figure out that they are in love and they’re all they’ve needed in their life. The movie ends with one of the beginning scenes and it is yet another unexpected ending.
