My Summer 2016 Netflix Picks

I love a good Netflix binge - and if you follow me on Twitter then you'll know that there's pretty much nothing at all that I take more seriously than whatever series I'm watching on Netflix at this current moment in time. My favourites fall in and out with the seasons, and what's on at the time, but I'm come up with a few favourites lately and so I thought I'd share them with you. They're not Pretty Little Liars and Kimmy Schmidt, but they're definitely enough to keep you preoccupied if you have no want to leave the house for the whole of Summer.

1: Scream
That's right - Scream's back with a new episode of series 2 available every week. A TV programme resurgence of the popular film; I was surprised by how much I actually liked it. Following in the footsteps of Teen Wolf or Bates Motel, it takes a traditional film storyline and works it into a TV show that will keep you gripped until the very end. Scream was good, although I guessed the murdered it wasn't until the very end - and I felt like it lead you to suspect everyone; which undeniably makes a very strong horror story. It's not excessively scary, but it is jumpy in parts so probably not one to watch in the dark on your own. So worth watching, though.

2: Prison Break
An old favourite, but a favourite none the less. I'm currently rewatching this and if I had a single piece of advice, it would definitely be pick this if you're looking to watch an excessive amount of programmes in one single sitting. Maybe it's Wentworth Miller that so quickly gets people hooked on this one, maybe it's the suspense or the idea that you just don't seem to be able to second guess it - but there's a reason that Prison Break was a cult classic for so long, and you'd be soft to miss it this time around when it's sitting waiting on Netflix, just begging for you to consume it in one sitting (unhealthy, split it into at least two).

3: iZombie
I've saved the best until last here, because my last pick is the one that took over my life and has since taken over all of my friends lives because I haven't spoken to anyone about this programme without excessively insisting that they must also watch it for themselves. Think Dawn Of The Dead meets CSI - this is a bizarre, funny and easy to watch Zombie programme. It also brings forward a surprising amount of recipes with brains as the main ingredient (it's boss, honestly).

So there's my picks - see you in 5 months when you get through them all! If you have any picks, make sure that you leave them in the comments for me.
