My Top TV & Movie Recommendations

With us now being in full on lockdown, I thought I would put together a list of my top TV & Movie recommendations which I have been enjoying over the past few months. Let’s face it, we all have a lot of time on our hands at the moment and before boredom sets in, why don’t you watch a few of my top picks. Granted, you might have watched many of these already but if you haven’t, let me know what you think once you do. Also, if you have any recommendations for me, please leave them in the comment box below and I will be sure to check them out.

Love is Blind (obsessed!) 
Ozark (the new season came out on Friday. Yay!) 
Afterlife (the new season comes out next month and I can’t wait) 
Orange is the New Black
Black Mirror
The Haunting of Hill House (so good but I did have to give up half way through as I’m a scardy cat) 
Friends (of course!) 
Peaky Blinders
Walking Dead
True Blood
Breaking Bad
Sons of Anarchy
Formula One
Locke & Key
Tiger King


Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Batman – The Dark Night

There are so many series and movies that I could write about but we would honestly be here all day. Maybe I should make this a part 1 blog post haha! As I mentioned earlier, please let me know what your favourite series, documentaries, movies etc are below, so we can all find new and exciting shows to watch.

I’m so happy that we have this little space that we can share everything together :). Stay safe all!

    Thanks for sharing all your faves. In true classic Hannah style, there’s a fair few on there I’ve not seen – Don’t judge me ha! I’ve heard quite a few good things about that Locke and Key so might have to give it a go. We have just watched series 1 of Stranger Things which I didn’t think I’d enjoy as it’s not my type of genre really but it surprised me and I ended up loving it! Will defo add some of these suggestions to my never ending list ha! Lotsa love. Han xx

      Haha aww Hannah love you so much. Enjoy working your way through my list, Steph @fallowpalms sent me over a fair few and I’m still working my way through them. I tried watching Stranger Things but I just couldn’t get into the series for some reason 🙁

    I watched Love is Blind and Tiger King! They kept me busy for sure! They were both good. Locke and Key is another good one on Netflix! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Once upon a time in Hollywood is just insane, so glad to see it at the top of your movie list!

      How amazing is it? Love that it’s based on a true story but is a completely different ending xxx

    I have been looking for a new good series to binge watch! Thank you so much for sharing! I love Peaky Blinders, Breaking Bad, and You. I need to watch Love is Blind and my partner keeps trying to get me to watch Narcos so I might give that a try too!

      Oooo yes Narcos was amazing, such a good recommendation and love is blind is too good. Enjoy them all 🙂

    Yes to afterlife!! I’ve watched it 3 or 4 times haha I’ve been counting down to the new series. I’m such a huge fan of Ricky! We’ve got tickets to see him in June which will end up being cancelled 😞 but at least afterlife isn’t 😊

      Oo yes I saw Ricky a few years ago now in Leeds and it was amazing. I can’t wait for the new series of afterlife as well. Sooooo good 🙂
