Five Netflix series to binge watch during quarantine

“Peaky Blinders” is a British television series that depicts a group of gangsters called the Peaky Blinders. The series follows the gang’s leader, Thomas Shelby ”Cillian Murphy” as he deals with the day-to-day problems of running this group. Although the first season may seem slow, the show quickly develops. With five seasons, each season builds off the last, so viewers can feel the story progress. This show has tons of amazing characters, moments and episodes. I definitely give it a recommendation if you are looking for a show to watch.






“Stranger Things” starts out as a show about a group of kids who are looking for their missing friend, but this quickly develops into a very interesting supernatural thriller. This series is charming due to the 80’s theme and its characters. The acting is very good, especially from most of the kid actors. The show also does a good job of bringing viewers into the time period with the music and set design. The show has only been out for a few years, so there are only three seasons. I definitely recommend giving this show a watch.



Bojack Horseman is a show about talking animated animals and their lives in Hollywood. In particular, the show focuses on Bojack, a horse that deals with problems such as depression and alcoholism. This has to be one of the weirder shows on this list because it deals with serious topics in a joking matter. I really wasn’t expecting to like this show at first, but the show ended up being really fantastic. It really keeps you invested and is emotionally gripping. This show is shockingly good and just had its final season. It’s a really good show and I recommend watching it.






Narcos is a show about the real-life story of Pablo Escobar. Viewers are able to experience his life as a drug kingpin and his eventual downfall as well as the DEA agents who helped bring down Escobar. This show is amazing. It genuinely feels like you are watching these events in real life because the acting is so good. The show also has riveting narration that helps you understand what is going on in the show. This show is three seasons long and has ended so it doesn’t have very many seasons. If you are looking for a show that is amazing and you can get through quickly then you should definitely watch Narcos.




Breaking bad is about a chem teacher named Walter Whiter who gets lung cancer, and then decides to sell meth to pay for his family’s future. What more can be said about this show is truly one of the best shows ever. The acting is amazing, especially from Bryan Cranston who plays Walter White. Each character is fantastically written and has their own individual arcs. The story the show tells is also amazing and takes several twists and turns.l If you haven’t watched this show yet then you definitely should.
