How often do you sit down with your dinner, open up Netflix, only to sit scrolling and scrolling, unable to find something you want to watch? Oh, and before you know it, you’ve already finished your dinner and it’s back to work. Better luck next time.
If this is you, think of this as your Bible. Your Holy Netflix Bible. Our team loves a good Netflix series. It’s been a welcome distraction during Covid-19. At first, we felt that we needed to always be doing ‘something’, every minute of the day. But we soon realised it’s actually quite nice becoming gripped by a series and escaping to another world (just for a little bit).
So, next time you’re treating yourself to a TV dinner or even just enjoying some quiet time, grab your Holy Netflix Bible (maybe a Caleño cocktail too), and for once you won’t spend the first 30 minutes searching for something to watch.
Our team has put together their favourite Netflix series. From binge worthy to feel-good, documentaries, cooking programmes and more – thank us later.
