Binge-Worthy Netflix Recommendations

No comments

Every time I use the “questions” feature on IG stories to ask for help with something, y’all seriously deliver. Ethan and I are in between shows right now, so we thought what better place to look for recommendations than to all of my awesome followers! I cannot believe the amount of responses I got in a matter of like, 12 hours. I knew I’d have to turn it into a blog post so we can all easily refer back to it after we binge through a few of these shows, haha!

I did my best to categorize the shows or provide a description (I’m using some of your responses word for word), but there were a ton I have never even heard of, so I couldn’t provide descriptors for all of them! Either way, I hope it helps you find something new to watch! Lord knows we will all need some Netflix shows to occupy us in the cold, dark months to follow. #amiright
