Our Top Friday Night Netflix Show Recommendations

If you're anything like us then you'll love a good Netflix show! We've gathered a few of our favourites from romance, crime and mystery, murder series and more for you to sit down and relax with this Friday night!              

One Day 

                                      Dexter and Emma lying together on the floor laughing

Is a series like One Day going to divide viewers? Most definitely. But if you're in the mood to watch something romantic, poetic and sure to pull at your heartstrings then the new drama is one you'll not only want to tuck into, but will quickly be lapped up in. 14 episodes may seem like a long stretch of time to dedicate to a series but it's necessary in a show that spans two decades and two separate lives in the form of Emma (Ambika Mod) and Dexter (Leo Woodall).


                                  Sofia Vergara as Griselda Blanco walking through a car park full of men in Netflix's Griselda.

For many comedy fans, Sofía Vergara was the hilarious Colombian step-mother at the helm of the Pritchett family in Modern Family, so it's a decided change to see the actress in a starring role that is poles apart from making viewers cackle with laughter. In Griselda, though, Vergara holds her own as the indomitable Griselda Blanco, the drug lord that even Pablo Escobar supposedly feared.

The Crown 

                                  Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown season 6                                       
Of course, the balance between fact and fiction did arguably shift in its later years, but it's still thrilling to get a glimpse behind palace doors and into the private lives of one of the world’s most famous families.


Heart Stopper 

                                   Nick and Charlie looking into one another's eyes, with a Paris guidebook in shot

This LGBTQ+ romance has captured the hearts of viewers across the globe, telling the story of how schoolboys Charlie Spring (Joe Locke) and Nick Nelson (Kit Connor) go from being friends to boyfriends over the course of a fateful school year.

Never Have I Ever

                                   A sad Devi lying on a sofa wearing a party hat

Created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, this joyful coming-of-age comedy-drama is now available to stream in full, with the final season bidding farewell to charming high schooler Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan). Her story began as she desperately attempted to improve her social status in high school while simultaneously dealing with her (almost literally) crippling grief.


                                     Jonathan Groff in Mindhunter

David Fincher's terrific psychological thriller series may only have lasted for two seasons but in that time it certainly made its mark. Jonathan Groff stars as FBI agent Holden Ford, who along with his partner Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) and psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv) aims to interview serial killers in order to understand their mindset and stop similar perpetrators.


                                 Andrew Scott as Tom Ripley with police in the background in a black-and-white still from Ripley.

There have been plenty of adaptations of Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels before, none more famous than 1999 film The Talented Mr Ripley, starring Matt Damon. However, perhaps none have been quite as faithful to the novels, nor as alluring, than this new black and white Netflix original series starring Andrew Scott.
