7 things to watch on Netflix right now

1. Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air
I am so happy that all the seasons of Fresh Prince are now on Netflix. I knew all the words to the theme song when I was about 7 or 8 and we used to watch it all the time. But, watching it as an adult is a totally different story as some of the topics that it brings up went completely over my head when I was younger, especially with showing inequalities and discrimination. It is still super entertaining and an easy watch, I still can't listen to Tom Jones without busting out the Carlton routine!

2. Sing Street
I am a huge fan of 80s films or pretty much anything set in the 80s so this is perfect. Sing Street is about a Northern Irish boy who decides to start a band after telling a girl he likes that he is a songwriter. It's sweet, charming, plus the music is great.

3. Angus Thongs And Perfect Snogging
This film makes me cringe so so much, but you can't turn it off because of the nostalgia. Going to a party dressed as an olive and half fake tanned legs. What else do I need to say?

4. Episodes
I never watched Episodes when it was on TV, but it is an easy watch about a TV writing husband and wife going to America to make an adaptation of one of their shows. Starring Matt Le Blanc as pretty much himself and actresses who are older than they look, it is quite a light and funny watch.

5. Pride And Prejudice
I had only watched the  film, but watching the BBC adaptation, I can say that I love this one equally as much! Plus, this Pride And Prejudice has the famous Colin Firth scene...

6. Sense And Sensibility
On a similar note, the BBC adaptation of Sense And Sensibility is also fab. And *unpopular opinion time* I love Colonel Brandon as a character, possibly more that Mr Darcy! As much as I love Alan Rickman, I prefer this version to the film and definitely worth a watch snuggled up with a hot chocolate on a Friday night... this is definitely what I did last night.

7. A Series Of Unfortunate Events
I am so impressed by this series and I love it so much more than the film. It's strange, witty and Neil Patrick Harris is absolutely great. I was very very impressed, and as someone who hasn't finished the book series (I read up to the 6th book before giving up when I was younger), I can't wait to see what happens.
