Recent Netflix Recommendations

With all the cold weather I've been opting to spend more time inside where it's warm which means plenty of time to work through my Netflix list. Honestly nothing sounds better on a cold night than snuggling under my beloved heated blanket with some of my famous hot chocolate for a good Netflix binge. It's so funny that I only jumped on the Netflix bandwagon 2 years ago, because now I honestly can't imagine not having it. I'm currently watching Jane the Virgin, but here are a few recents that I would recommend.

1. Land Girls - This one was originally a BBC miniseries, so it starts slow the way I feel all British shows start. It follows a group of girls during WWII who move to work on a farm. I don't think it's very accurate but the story lines quickly suck you in. 4 out of 5 stars

2. The Santa Clara Diet - Why is there still only 1 season of this and why did I wait so long to watch it!? Drew Berrymore is a realestate agent turned zombie. I binge watched this in one day. 5 out of 5 stars

3. The Young Victoria - After watching this I realized I know nothing about Queen Victoria other than she ruled for a long time. I think this one if fairly accurate, but if nothing else the costumes were beautiful. 3 out of 5 stars

4. Suite Francaise - I watched this one on a total whim and was glad I did. It's about a French woman and her affair with a Nazi officer when her town is taken over by a German unit. It's one of those movies that reminds you not every bad person is 100% bad and not every good person is 100% good. 3 out of 5 stars

5. Wild Hogs - I watched this one with the boyfriend, but honestly I'd recommend it even if you're alone. What's not to love about Tim Allen and John Travolta as middle-age men who ride motorcycles. 4 out of 5 stars

6. White Gold - This one took me a while to get into, but I ended up enjoying it in the end. I think the biggest drawback is watching Chuck Bass have a British accent and be someone you don't want to cheer for. 2.5 out of 5 stars

7. Grace and Frankie - If you've ever watched this Netflix series than you know you are in for a treat! This may have been my favorite season yet, and I can't wait for the next. 4 out of 5 stars

8. When We First Met - I clicked on this one when nothing on my list sounded good at the moment. I feel like they could have done more with the plot, but over all was pleased with this Netflix original. 3 out of 5 stars

What have you watched recently on Netflix? Anything you wouldn't suggest?
