Mads Maybe Ultimate Netflix List

My top favorites on Netflix - updated August 2018

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. [4 seasons]

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 has a main role! [2 seasons]

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. [6 seasons]

The Office // Oh my gosh, I don't even know where to start. I laughed, I cried, I became one of those people who references quotes from The Office. I know this show isn't for everyone, but I think you need to give yourself time to get into it and by season 3, you'll be deeply invested in the lives of the characters. [9 seasons]

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. There's a great balance of suspense and comedy and all of the characters are strong. [2 seasons]

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. [7 seasons]

Switched at Birth // This is a really good drama that captured my attention and I was always looking forward to what would happen next, all the way through to the series finale. One of my favorite things about this drama is that it's fairly realistic. [5 seasons]

Parks and Recreation // I can't believe how many popular memes and phrases I didn't know came from this show! It's SO funny - I laughed out loud practically every episode and Leslie Knope is such an inspiration, although I feel more like an April Ludgate. [7 seasons]

The Great British Baking Show // Probably the best reality show on Netflix, this series is so calm and pleasant to watch. I love seeing all of the cool things the contestants bake and finding out who is star baker for each episode and who is going home. [4 seasons]

The Good Place // There's only one season on Netflix right now and I really enjoyed watching it. There are so many twists, turns, and surprises — I was always waiting for what would happen next and it was rarely what I was expecting. It's a comedy, but not laugh out loud funny in my opinion. [1 season]

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! [5 seasons]


To All The Boys I've Loved Before // SUCH A CUTE MOVIE! I haven't read the books, but I really enjoyed watching this movie and I had no idea Margot is Mona from Pretty Little Liars until I looked it up at the end. 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 // I watched this without ever seeing the first one and still loved it! I love baby Groot!! This movie is funny and filled with action. It's for sure one of the best movies available on Netflix.

47 Meters Down // This movie gave me so much anxiety, but it was so good! It's definitely a little scary and suspenseful so I probably wouldn't recommend watching it at night, but it's a must-watch in my opinion.

Brain on Fire // I don't want to give too much of the plot away because the mystery is what makes this movie. I really enjoyed it and I was surprised to find out that the movie is based on a true story.

The Princess Diaries // A childhood classic! Everyone loves The Princess Diaries and, if you haven't seen it, you definitely need to watch! If you have seen it, it doesn't hurt to watch it again, especially if it's been a while.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement // Netflix doesn't always give us an original movie AND its sequel so it's super lucky that both Princess Diaries movies are streaming right now! It's the perfect double feature! 

Ella Enchanted // I watched Ella Enchanted all the time when I was younger and my cousins and I would always sing "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" from the final scene. I'm so glad it's on Netflix now because it's a great blast from the past! 

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.

The Kissing Booth // I'm not usually a big fan of Netflix Originals, but this is one of the better ones I've seen. It's kinda good and kinda bad in a weird way. The acting isn't great, but it's not terrible if you're looking for a cheesy teen romance movie.
