So, you’ve run out of new shows? Here are some Netflix series to start all over again.
I hear you. You’ve watched all the new and exciting shows you possibly can on Netflix and there’s absolutely nothing left for you- well, why not rewatch one you’ve already seen?
There’s always something special about rewatching an epic show and noticing all the little things you didn’t pick up on last time, so we’ve compiled a list of Netflix series that were so good we recommend you watch them again.
For those of us who are still having withdrawals after Netflix’s drug epic ‘Narcos’ came to an end, Ozark is the show that could very well get us through this cold turkey phase.
Yet, unlike Narcos, this is a series that feels much more personal in terms of story and structure, resting confidently on the shoulders of Jason Bateman and Laura Linney’s acting talents, who both give knockout performances as a married couple catapulted into the criminal underworld.
With three solid seasons so far, this is one hell of a gripping slice of television and further proves that Netflix knows exactly what their audiences want and how to give them a solid dose of it.
Cast: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner and more
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year, the final episode of Schitt’s Creek featured one of the most heartwarming moments on television in recent memory and left viewers from all over the globe in tears.
Although not formally a sitcom, the show certainly has a heart of one and always makes sure we’re smiling even in its most dramatic moments. As we follow the Rose family’s unexpected fate of being forced into unknown territory and the often hilarious misfortunes that befall them, the series often finds its charm in the mundane rhythms of daily life and that just makes it all the more relatable.
Cast: Emily Hampshire, Annie Murphy, Sarah Levy and more
You’d think the neverending battle between Game of Thrones and Vikings fans about which of the two shows is ‘superior’ would be a thing of the past by now, but it’s not.
Seeing as both have a high entertainment factor and incredibly talented ensembles to bring their ancient stories to life, it’s a competition that’s totally understandable. Yet, there’s something about Vikings that’s hard to shake. It’s grittier, slightly more primitive and feels cursed with an extra cold sting of reality that makes it a captivating watch.
Whether you’re a GOT fan or are into other violent fantasies like this, Vikings draws you in from the first episode and never lets up. It really is from a world of its own and is the kind of escapist television you’ll likely skip past until your obsessed friend forces you to watch it. That’s us. We’re that friend.
Cast: Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick, Alexander Ludwig and more
Wonderfully flamboyant and often spliced together with a distinct visual grandeur, Netflix’s five-part mini-series examining the life of fashion designer, Roy Halston Frowick, is ironically a little surface level at times, but that’s kind of expected when you’re watching a show about the fashion industry and the rise and fall of one of its most influential contributors (who also just happens to be unapologetically camp).
Ewan McGregor knocks it out of the park here with all his melodramatic antics, but the actor still finds moments to ground himself in the more earnest chapters of the story when it’s not all high heels and fluffy feathers.
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Dayan, Krysta Rodriguez and more
Cooking with Paris
You’ve gotta admit there’s something deeply fascinating about being a fly on the wall inside the homes of celebrities and although Paris Hilton is no stranger to that concept, her latest network endeavour ‘Cooking with Paris’ is one of the most unexpected pleasures of 2021.
From the clumsiness right down to the endless supply of face-palming dialogue, this short and sharp little show has all the right ingredients for a damn good time. It almost seems cruel to be laughing at someone’s expense as much as this, but there are a few breadcrumbs along the way that hint Paris is also in on the joke too, so don’t feel bad about it.
With an abundance of true crime documentaries out there, it’s often refreshing when a fictional series comes along that has the same power as real life to knock the wind outta you, and Mindhunter is a strong example of that.
Based in the darker realms of criminal psychology while narratively constructed as a procedural thriller, the series effectively deconstructs the techniques used throughout investigations to profile serial killers and also shows how easily the lines between professionalism and personalisation can be blurred.
On a side note, it’s also fun to watch musical theatre actor, Jonothan Groff, play a darker role that feels tonally lightyears away from his work in Hamilton on Broadway.
Cast: Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv and more
