Binge-watching my favourite shows on Netflix over the holidays is my version of self-care. There’s nothing better than switching off from the rest of the world for a few hours. So I’m always on the lookout for funny, witty and relatable shows.
I’ve discovered a few gems that I would love to share with you. If you’re looking for good quality series or movies to watch over the holidays, I’ve got you covered. Here are 5 TV shows to binge-watch right now.
Working Moms is by far the best series I’ve watched on Netflix. This show tells the story of 4 different thirty-something-year-old moms and friends as they try to balance their careers, family life and love life. It’s witty, funny and most importantly, relatable.
The Let Down
I’m obsessed with The Let Down. It follows the adventures of a new mom who’s struggling to balance motherhood, her career and her love life. This series reminds us that it’s okay not to feel like you’re nailing motherhood because motherhood is hard. Although I’ve been a mom for 13 years, The Let Down offers lessons I still need to be reminded of from time to time.
This series is a little different from the first two. It follows three suburban moms that make a series of poor choices. They find themselves in desperate circumstances and risk everything to take their power back. The show kicks off with them robbing a grocery store, but they eventually get sucked further and further into crime.
I have a blended family, so the name of this show instantly piqued my interest. And when I started watching it, I was immediately hooked. It’s a Swedish drama that follows a complicated blended family as they navigate through their challenges.
If you have a blended family, then you have to watch this show. I found it relatable—at some stage, I felt as if I watching my own family. It’s funny, realistic and a little tragic at the same time.
I’m currently watching the second season of this series, and I’m obsessed. Atypical is a heartfelt comedy that follows a teenager on the autism spectrum, as he navigates relationships and life in general. The show highlights the pressures upon relationships that autism can bring for a person with ASD and their family.
There you have it. Those are some of my favourite shows that I think you’ll also love. What are some of your favourites? Let me know in the comments below.
