Netflix series and movies that are worth watching

In November 2016 I wrote to you what series to watch on Netflix. If you're tired of sitting at the table and eating Christmas dishes, I have for you a list of movies and series from Netflix that you can start watching today.

Today, a small update of the post from November 2016, because we still use Netflix and we often miss for a few hours with a good series. We were looking forward to the second season of Stranger Things, which, like the previous one, turned out to be great. We are currently watching the second season of The Crown, which I also wrote about in the previous one list of TV series worth watching on Netflix but the second season didn't completely pull me in. Unlike several series, which I will tell you more about below.

what to watch on Netflix

Dark

The series is very similar to Stranger Things, and watching the trailer a bit annoyed that Netflix released something so similar. Nothing could be more wrong. The series is not similar, and the only element of similarity is that the main characters are children. A plus is also the specific climate that is in Stranger Things. This series also draws for long hours. We are looking forward to the second season, because not everything has been explained.

The only thing that bothered me was that the film is German production. I don't really like German, so I had a hard time watching a series with subtitles. We had to turn on Polish dubbing because I couldn't hear it.

Designated Survivor

We are watching the next season of this series. Although I have the impression that it is continued a little by force, it does not mean that it is wound up badly. On the one hand, I am glad that they did not upload all episodes of the season at once, because we would probably watch the whole episode in one weekend.

The series tells the story of an employee of the White House, who by the attack on the Capitol becomes the chosen one - the President of the United States. Of course, I don't have to mention that the main character never aspired to be President. There are side stories in the series that are indirectly related to the main story. This is a light series, but not without some idealized image of the USA.


Dynasty

I have to confess to you. I didn't think I'd get into this series. Actually, I didn't even think I'd start watching it. However, I have so, that when I start to watch something and the thread is quite addictive - I keep watching. And so it was with the Dynasty, or rather a continuation of the Dynasty (I don't think I need to tell you what the series is and why millions loved it).

The new version is made in a very American style - luxury cars, villas with swimming pools and beautiful Cristal styles, which I often watch with great admiration. There is nothing else for me to do but follow the Carrington's fate.


Jab Harry Met Sejal

I am delighted that not only European news but also Indian ones appear on Netflix. Thanks to this, I don't have to combine it with where to watch an Indian film, especially if it's from this year.

There is a rule of Indian films - if Shah Rukh Khan plays in the series, the movie on 99% will be good. This Hindu actor is simply phenomenal and I could write about him for hours. I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to see him live (such a small dream on my list). In addition to Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma plays the main role. The film is set in Europe and tells the story of a woman who lost her engagement ring and guide. Of course, there was good humor, as well as scenes on which you can cry. And if we add songs characteristic of Bollywood cinema - we have an idea for a perfect evening under a blanket and a bowl of popcorn.

Netflix movies and series that you shouldn't waste your time on

Fog

We watched several episodes and died of boredom. This is probably the worst film adaptation I've ever seen. Even the biggest fan of Stephen King will be disappointed watching this series.

Gra o wszystko

We were tempted to film because the actor plays it (Jake Johnson) from the series Jess and Chłopaki, which we like very much. The story is about a man who does not stick to money and most of the money loses in poker. Fate means that his shady colleague gives him tens of thousands of dollars to store. Unfortunately, this movie turned out to be so boring (there was really nothing interesting about it) that we barely made it to the end.

TV series worth watching on Netflix

TV series worth watching on Netflix

We like to spend autumn evenings at home. Warm tea in hand, fragrance oils in the fireplace and a soft blanket are what I like the most. Plus Netflix and your favorite series, but ... which ones are worth watching? We gave up traditional television almost a year ago and do not think about returning (see why we gave up television).

Under the Dome

We watched this series some time ago, but if you don't know it yet, you can watch it on Netflix. Under the Dome is a series that was shot on the basis of Stephen King's book (Green Mile, you know?). Chester's Mill is covered by a dome. At first, no one knows what's going on, with time even stranger things happen. There is a shortage of electricity, food and water. How will the residents and people who have been closed under a huge dome deal with?

Stranger Things

The mysterious disappearance of Will Byers (a student at a nearby school) is just the beginning of the strange events that will haunt the town of Hawkins. The more that not only Will disappeared in an unexplained way. Who or what kidnaps people? You'll find out watching the series. Great actors play (great Eleven game) encourage you to watch the next episodes.

The Crown

New on Netflix, which we really liked. The Crown is a costume series that tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II. This series shows us the backstage of life of the royal couple and her family. Dark secrets, secrets and intrigues are one of the elements that accompany them every day.
I really like the actress who played the role of Elizabeth. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the actor who plays her husband. In my opinion his play is completely bland, and the actor himself does not fit this role. Apart from this fact, we get a great series that is perfect for autumn evenings. Each episode lasts almost an hour (without a few minutes), so this is not a typical series that we will watch cooking dinner.
The advantage of Netflix is ​​that it is available throughout the entire season. So you don't have to wait for the next episodes of the series.

Grand Hotel

No series has drawn us like this Spanish production yet. We love costume series with a hint of comedy and romance, which is why we liked 100%. If you're fans of Downton Abbey, then you will definitely like this series. We watched Downton Abbey with great curiosity, often with tears in my eyes (from laughter and despair as well), but if I had to choose, I guess Gran Hotel was more to my liking. I have never laughed and cried while watching a TV series, and here it was.
Gran Hotel is a story about the owners of a large, luxury hotel. Intrigues like in Fashion for Success, laughter through tears, as well as the romance of a waiter with the daughter of the owner who spice up the whole series. This is what the Gran Hotel series is about.
I recommend watching this series with Polish subtitles, because you can learn many Spanish words while watching. The actors who played in this series did a great job. I particularly liked several roles: Julio, Alicia, Andreas (my favorite when it comes to playing this series!), Ayala (brilliant!) Mother of Andreas and Doña Teresa.

The 100

The second series, which dragged us for hours after the Gran Hotel, was a series about a group of people sent to Earth after almost a hundred years since the nuclear explosion caused by ... aaa we won't tell you anymore, watch it yourself :)
The task of the title hundred is to confirm whether the former planet is habitable again. What astonishment must be when it turns out that there is life on Earth and it is not its primitive form, but groups that have adapted to the prevailing conditions. The show is well done, but be warned, the first three episodes may take a long time. The sluggish start is compensated by subsequent, great views over the entire four seasons.
The cast of the series and the script itself is great. You can't predict exactly what will happen in the next episode. Fortunately, you don't have to wait for weeks on the next episodes on Netflix. We devoured the whole series (four seasons!) In two weeks. The perfect series for long autumn-winter evenings :) My favorite character is definitely Jaha and his devotion to the city of light ... I don't write anything anymore, you just have to watch it!

Helix

The series is about a group of scientists going to a remote base located in the Arctic. The goal is to save humanity from a deadly virus, not global warming!; D
The first season is quite interesting but the continuation of the second season is not the same. It happens to us very rarely, but we just did not watch the started series to the end, because it could not be watched again. The only positive from this series is the intro, which is a total contrast to the whole series.

Returned

If you liked the description of the series "Stranger Things" or you have already watched it before, it's time for another proposal from Netflix Original. Imagine that one day a loved one returns to your home and talks to you as if nothing had ever happened before - she just returned from work, school, etc. and there is no awareness that something is wrong. The series is made in a similar atmosphere to Stranger Things. Plus a great soundtrack and addictive script from the show. Another great item from Netflix Original.

Atelier

Are you fans of Japanese productions? If you answered yes, or have never watched this type of production before (and you are looking for serial varieties) then take our word for it, it's worth spending time on this series. If you like watching anime, then you know more or less what you can expect from this type of production, in this case played by "live actors". However, it is neither dark nor infantile anime, which by the way is also available in the form of a series on Netflix - the series occurs under the title Fri. "Good Morning Call."
Returning to the merits, however, the described series tells the story of a young ambitious girl who is a fan of textiles. The heroine gets a job at the exclusive Japanese lingerie company "Emotion". Our favorite characters next to the main heroine is the owner of the Emotion company, confident, who knows what she wants from life. However, will Mayuko Kawakita find itself in such a specific and demanding industry with its innovative ideas ...?
To sum up another great item from Netflix. May future productions on this website maintain the current level, and we will never miss the traditional television, which falls pale with the offer offered by the modern Internet.
