Mads Maybe Ultimate Netflix List

My top favorites on Netflix - updated August 2017


TV Series


Reign // I'm obsessed with Reign. The storyline is always intriguing and they honestly have the best music for any TV show in my opinion. You'll definitely fall in love with Francis and there's a 99.9% chance you'll cry at some point during the series and it's so worth it. 

The Carrie Diaries // One of my all-time favorite shows on Netflix, the prequel to Sex and the City is a must watch for every girl, even if you've never seen SATC. High school Carrie is so inspirational from her clothes to her NYC job. Plus, Austin Butler.

Gossip Girl // I'm not sure if I've ever encountered someone who didn't love Gossip Girl. Blair and Chuck are arguably relationship goals and there is an endless supply of drama to go around. I definitely think this series gets better in the last few seasons so be sure to stick around.

Riverdale // I was so surprised by how much I liked this show. It's the perfect murder mystery and so binge-worthy, I couldn't stop watching. Block off 13 hours of your day to watch the series and don't worry, questions will be answered! Hopefully the second season will not disappoint. 

Gilmore Girls // I finally watched the full series of Gilmore Girls and it was so good! It's different from other shows in a good way - it has a very peaceful and happy vibe. I love the length of this series because you follow the characters through such a big part of their lives. #TeamLogan

Switched at Birth // I love a good drama that actually keeps things pretty realistic. Unlike *some* shows on the network. I did notice towards the end of the series that it was trying to touch on every possible societal/controversial topic, which sometimes became quite a stretch, but overall it's great.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt // Two words: Titus and Lemonade. I'd be lying if I said Titus wasn't my favorite part of this show. I'm actually hoping for a spin-off starring him with no Kimmy. It's a funny show and I like that it's unique and current.

13 Reasons Why // Although this show is controversial, I enjoyed it. I was always on the edge of my seat and it's eye-opening for sure. It's very short - just 13 episodes! - but another season is in the works. If you want something deep, this is it.

90210 // This typical teen drama is just what you'd expect. There's an unreasonable amount of car crashes and basically all of the main characters date each other at some point in the series, but it is entertaining if you've watched everything else on the list! 

Movies


Fan Girl // Fan Girl is about a girl obsessed with All Time Low and, while that isn't my band of choice, I can relate. It's fun to watch her journey take place, especially if you've ever been obsessed with a boy band (yes, Jonas Brothers) and always dreamed of running into them.

Twilight // Don't judge! I thought Twilight wasn't a very good movie when it first came out even though I loved the books, but I recently watched it again on a whim and it was pleasant. I'm just annoyed Netflix doesn't stream the other 3 movies!

Can't Buy Me Love // This movie is worth watching just to laugh about a young Patrick Dempsey, but it turns out to have a good storyline with ups and downs. It's so interesting to see how different teenagers were in the 1980s and the ones in this movie certainly are different.

13 Going On 30 // Are there people who don't love 13 Going On 30? I don't think so. It's really funny and a cute love story. I always associate the movie with the Thriller dance, a pretty iconic scene. Definitely a girls' night movie.

Good Burger // Childhood classic. Admit that this movie is hilarious! Everyone needs to see this movie at least once in their life and if you've seen it, you should watch it again for memories' sake. More fun when watched with friends.

Holes // Another throwback you probably watched multiple times on Disney Channel, but I saw it through different eyes as an adult. I love Zero, okay! It's amazing to see how history and the present came together, even if it was super far-fetched, and Stanley Yelnats' luck finally turning around.

The Giver // Honestly The Giver is a little weird but I like it because it's not my typical movie. The setting sort of reminded me of Hunger Games because it's basically a different world and although there are quite a few slow moments, there is some exciting action towards the end.

Disney's Heavyweights // What a movie! Even though this movie is made for kids and is a little silly, it's actually pretty funny and something to watch when you want light and humorous. Ben Stiller plays the "villain" and Kenan Thompson has a supporting role.

The Founder // I have mixed feelings about this movie! It appealed to my business + marketing senses, but the overall story - of how McDonald's came to be - is actually so sad! It's definitely good information to know though and a great conversation topic for days after you watch it.
