Must Watch Netflix Shows 2020

Hey lovelies, today I'm going to be sharing with you some of my favourite Netflix watches since you've already had 5 Instagrams Accounts I Love this week I thought I'd spoil you to my favourite shows as well. I'm a big Netflix binger, as I like to constantly have background noise!

Spinning Out 

"A figure skating Olympic hopeful struggles to balance family, love and fragile mental health as her dream of winning takes a dizzying hold."

I came across this series at the beginning of January, and after watching it once I had a lot of questions about it so went back and watched it a second time. The series follows ice skater Kat, post injury she is offered a way back into the sport via pairs skating, and follows her struggle with bipolar disorder, following her and her skating partner Justin.

I really enjoyed the rawness of this series and how it covers mental illness, why I found the first few episodes a bit slow it does pick up and it is definitely worth the watch.

The Pharmacist 

"After losing his son in a drug-related shooting, small-town pharmacist Dan Schneider embarks on a crusade to bring a reckoning against the powerful figures behind the nation's devastating opioid epidemic."

This series was one that I didn't think I'd love that much, I'm really into documentaries but it often depends on the series and the content of the series. I found it so heartbreaking and then so incredibly heartwarming, after the loss of his son Dan works so hard to get justice not only for his son, but for those who became addicted to Opioids. The documentary follows his pursuit to take down a doctor who is abusing her power. Highly recommend.

The Witcher

"The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world in which people often prove more wicked than beasts."

I'm not going to lie, magical and Sci-Fi shows I find really hard to get into. After a conversation at work with the lads, I was convinced to give it a try mainly because of Henry Cavill, but that is a different story. I found the series a bit slow to get into, but I loved the idea behind it. I think because I haven't played the games it took me a little longer to connect, but by episode four I was living for the characters especially Yennefer. I'm excited for the second series and I hope it develops more. I've bought one of the books and I can't wait to read that either because I've heard some really amazing things. I definitely think that this will be one of the most watched Netflix series of 2020 because of the hype around it.


"Will Graham, an FBI criminal profiler, has an uncanny ability to sympathise with Dr Hannibal Lecter, a forensic psychiatrist. However, he is unaware that he is a cannibal."

I'm not going to lie I've watched this series about six times over the years, and I recently rediscovered that it was on Netflix. It really isn't for the faint hearted as it is very gory but I every time I watch it I appreciate how artfully done some of the scenes are. I really love the development of will as a character in season one and how they show him breaking down. It's a must watch for any horror lover.


"When a teen reports being raped, then recants her story, two female detectives follow evidence that could reveal the truth; based on a true story."

This show unfolds so slowly, and it done so tastefully if you ask me. I always find it really hard to watch shows where sexual assault is included. The focus on the victims in this scenario is so refreshing to see on a TV screen and it follows their stories really well. I would really recommend this one if you fancy something slow burning but really interesting to watch.

I'd love to know what Netflix shows you've been binging lately, let me know in the comments.
