Craving something a little girlie and full of drama? Nashville just might be your answer. One of my best friends recommended it to me a couple of years back and it took me awhile to jump on board, I was pretty skeptical because I'm really not a country fan. If you're in the same boat, don't even worry about it...there's so much good and really not that much country music. There's three seasons available on Netflix now and it's a cable show which means lots of episodes to fill your time ;)
I've mentioned this show on the blog before and it's a bit of an obscure pick because it's from Australia, but it is seriously so, so funny! It's a little bit like The Office, in that it's set in a workplace and might not be everyone's cup of tea but the bf and I both love it and flew through the two seasons that are up on Netflix.
In the mood for something a little dark and twisty, Luther might be just the answer. Idris Elba is fantastic (obviously) as detective John Luther. There's four seasons on Netflix but it's actually only 14 episodes in total (those British shows and their weird super short seasons) so you could even finish over the break. Not exactly a festive show but sometimes you need a little crime drama.
Sometimes Canadian content can be pretty awful but I thought this show was really enjoyable and am looking forward to the second season. It's about a group of young Canadian spies in WWII and their efforts to thwart the Germans. If you like historical dramas you should give the X Company a shot, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
I've got a cop drama already so why not a lawyer drama? Suits kind of has it all, it's definitely dramatic but it can also be funny, sweet and a whole lot of charming. The characters are so great and you really root for them but they all have a little bit of a bad streak. It's such a good show and I feel like it doesn't get the hype it deserves.
Ok, so I'm a pretty big Friends fan and am therefore a Matt LeBlanc fan so my opinion on this one might be slightly biased. With that said, I do think Episodes is funny and enjoyable, even if it's a little fluffy (sometimes that's just what you need though). Matt LeBlanc stars as himself and the show basically parodies his ridiculous Hollywood lifestyle but you don't end up hating him (at least I didn't...)
