3 Things - The Less Talked About Netflix Picks

I have the worst sleeping pattern known to man, I am often asleep at 11am one morning, but still wide awake at 5am the next. I watch a lot of Disney films on NowTV to pass the time (as well as a sneaky episode of Girls now and then), but mostly my attention stays with Netflix. Although I'm loyal to my old faithfuls - Breaking Bad, Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars, they're the obvious choices, and Netflix honestly does have some real gems to offer if you search long enough. Here's my top three, lesser talked about Netflix picks.

1: Community
This is a firm favourite series of mine. It's essentially about a lawyer who's qualifications are faked and so he has to go back to community college to get what he needs to keep practising law. This is a stereotypical American comedy, in the best way. There's something for everyone here, it's snidey and bitchy and funny, it's stupid and clever in equal measure and it's an easygoing watch for background noise, if you're into that kind of thing (I am, never work in silence - golden tip from me.)

2: Excluded
This is the stupidest, cheesiest film I've ever watched - and I've watched it about four times this week. It's literally a film about a boy who is excluded from school but attempts to pull off the biggest prank ever - not telling his parents about his exclusion. It has a lovable rogue for a main character, a million completely unrealistic scenes and a good underlying romance - what more could you ask for in a film?

3: Hebburn 
I loved this so much when it first came out, and now it's on Netflix it's definitely a renewed love affair. This is a series about a boy who marries a girl in Vegas - it follows their life living with his parents and his family members in their home town. This is such an underrated comedy, and my dad who finds literally nothing funny agrees with me about this one - so you know it must be good. This is most definitely a Netflix underdog.

I highly recommend Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl and Breaking Bad (preferably back to back binge watching, because that's the kind of TV watcher that I am) - but it's also worth having a scope around for some new favourites, see above, and also some good old classics - Coyote Ugly, anybody?

What are your top Netflix picks?
