3 Programmes That I’m Loving on Netflix Right Now

I’ve been having a bit of a struggle thinking of what to post on my blog over the last couple of weeks. In terms of my plans, my new music series The Legend Slot is the only blog content that I actually have planned in advance. I’m at a bit of a crossroads with my content right now to be honest. I’m wanting to go all out with the fashion content. But, given the gloomy weather, I haven’t had a lot of time to go out and shoot. And more often than not I’m finding myself indoors in my loungewear anyway!

After a mini reflection I realised that maybe I should just write about what I’ve been doing on my lazy days inside hiding from storm Ciara, Dennis and now apparently a storm Ellen as well (!!??!). And if I’m being completely honest I’ve just been doing a lot of Netflix-watching.

Aside from the obvious must watch, To All The Boys 2, (which I may have already watched 3 times since it’s release last week) I’ve been discovering and catching up with some really great TV shows. I for one know that I can always do with a recommendation for what to watch on Netflix.Β  So I thought why not share my current watches as well? Here’s what I’ve been loving on Netflix.

Next in Fashion

I guess this is a very apt one to start with, given we’re in the busiest month of the fashion calendar (fashion week.) And with London Fashion Week coming to an end this week Next in Fashion is the perfect way to get your little hit of style once it’s over.

With Alexa Chung and Tan France as the hosts of the show, Next in Fashion follows 18 fashion designers as they compete to win $250,000 and a collection that will be featured on luxury retailer Net-a-Porter.Β  Each of the designers are professionals however they aren’t yet household names.

Every week, in pairs, the designers are set a specific themed challenge and are asked to produce two outfits that are ready for the runway. And to kick it off they start with a Red Carpet theme. If you’re like me and love a programme that showcases creative talent then this is definitely something to add to your watchlist.

Terrace House

If you haven’t heard of Terrace House then you are seriously missing out. First airing back in 2012, Terrace House is a Japanese reality TV show. The idea behind the show is that 6 strangers live together and are filmed throughout the space of a year.

The show starts with three men and three women who have never met before who all move into a lavish house (seriously the houses are always INSANE). Some of them have moved across the country into the house, sometimes even from an entirely different country, and some are from the city already. They all go about their usual lives but throughout the series they learn to live together and get to know each other as friends and potential romantic partners.

At any point during their time on the show they can choose to leave. This could be because they no longer want to be part of the house, they feel as though they’ve achieved all that they wanted to do from the house or something else. And when they do leave, someone new comes in to take their place.

One of my favourite parts of Terrace House is the group of commentators for each episode. They get together and watch every episode, giving their opinion on everything that’s going on. Every 15 minutes or so the show will cut to the commentators for their reactions on what’s happening that episode. It’s such a cool format!

So far there’s been 5 seasons of Terrace House. Each seasons was set in a different area of Japan, and one in Hawaii. The most recent series for 2019/2020 is set back in Japan in Tokyo.

Grace & Frankie

After finding out that their husbands aren’t just work partners and have actually been romantically involved for two decades, Grace & Frankie tells the story of two women in their 70s as they attempt to cope with the circumstances they’re suddenly in.

The show’s been running for 5 years. So if you’re thinking of starting it, you’ve got plenty of great watching ahead of you! I’m still a few seasons behind as it’s not a show that I find myself binge-watching. It’s more of a gradual watch for me. I actually started it months ago but I’m enjoying casually watching it when I’m in the mood for an easy-watch comedy.

    Okay, I haven’t watched Terrace House or Grace & Frankie, but I’m obsessed with Next in Fashion! I binge watched the entire season over two days and have absolutely no regrets. I’m dying for season 2 already.

  2. I’m interested in watching “Next in Fashion” as it reminds me of Project Runway. I used to love watching that growing up! I just started watching a Korean Drama called Crash Landing on You, but I’ll definitely look for Next in Fashion & add it to My List. πŸ™‚

    I haven’t seen either of the first two, but honestly, sign me up for anything with Alexa Chung and I’m there so I need to check that one out. I watched a little bit of Grace & Frankie S1 but never finished, I should really pick that one up again too, I seem to remember enjoying it at the time x

    I haven’t seen any of these, but Terraced House sounds so interesting?? I might watch the first episode and see how I like it, it sounds refreshing compared to most reality shows on the tele at the minute! I’ve been watching a lot of Bob’s Burgers on Amazon prime at the minute and I just love it so much, it’s so funny 😌

    These sound like great shows to watch on Netlix! I especially love the sound of Terrace House, that is such an interesting concept, I imagine it is quite addictive to watch. I’ve recently got into Love Is Blind, I didn’t think I would enjoy it but I can’t stop watching it and want to see what happens to the couples πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing your recommendations Faye, great post! <3 xx

      You should definitely give Terrace House a watch if you’re looking for an alternative take on a reality TV show. Cheer is currently on my list as well so I’ll have to give it a watch. x

    Yassss, Grace and Frankie! It’s such an underrated show! I’m going to be so sad when it ends next season but it’s amazing how long it’s gone on for. We’re currently watching Locke & Key, which is kinda intriguing. I’ve also started The Goop Lab, which is interesting to say the least!

    I love the idea of a group of commentators giving their thoughts on a show. I’ve been enjoying the 90 Day Fiance shows and they have ‘Pillow Talk’ where couples that were previously on the show come back to watch the show and share their thoughts. It’s SO funny!
