It’s finally chilly out, and you know what means: time to start getting ready for hibernation. I don’t know about you, but cold autumn days are my favorite. They signify the start of cozy, hot chocolate-filled bingewatches of my favorite shows.
If you’re like me and a lazy day sounds like the perfect treat, read on for 5 things to watch on Netflix!
Naturally, Lorelai and Rory top out this list. What better way to spend a fall afternoon than watching the Gilmores’ lives play out in idyllic New England? I love the relationship Lorelai and Rory have and even though the show is a tearjerker sometimes (looking at you, series finale), it always make me happy to watch an episode (or four or five). Also, now is the perfect time to watch the series if you haven’t yet – the series revival is coming to Netflix November 25th!
American Horror Story
I’ve been watching AHS since the very beginning and it’s the perfect weekly scary-movie catharsis. Season 6 is well underway, but if you’ve been on the fence about the hit series, now is a great time to dive in, since the first 5 seasons are all on Netflix!
The Crown is Netflix’s new series. If you somehow haven’t heard about it, the show is a biographical series about the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II. And it’s amazing.
Between the stunning cinematography and era-accurate costumes, and the great acting, I’m obsessed. I highly recommend The Crown whether or not you know anything about her reign or British politics, as the show focuses heavily on her personal life.
While this might seem like an odd choice compared to the other options in this list, I love this animated film. I remember seeing the trailer for the first time while at another movie, featuring the sloth scene (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you should look it up because I think it’s hilarious). It’s feel-good and entertaining, and I’ve probably watched it a few times since it was first released.
Rounding out my favorite things to watch on Netflix this weekend, Adventureland is a comedy set in an amusement park in the late 80s. But the film also has its more somber moments, as it focuses on the relationships the main character (Jesse Eisenberg) develops with co-workers at the park and his preparation for the real world.
In all honesty, it’s hard to describe the movie and do it justice, but I highly recommend it.
