We’ve all imagined what it would be like to live the life of a superhero. Teenager Dave Lizewski makes his fantasies a reality by donning a fetching green and yellow diving suit after getting mugged. A comedy filled with drama, witty one-liners and an all-star cast. If you’ve never watched Kick-Ass before, you’re in for a treat – geeks have never been so cool.
The TV show that made us all realise that the royal family are maybe slightly more interested than initially anticipated is back for a second series. This time around, the focus is squarely on Elizabeth and Philip’s relationship – and, lads, it’s not as rosy as you might imagine. Proper drama with incredible acting, costumes and sets – Netflix spent a fortune on this one, and it shows.
Back to the Future I, II, III
No we didn’t get a bit happy with the numbers, you read correctly – the Back to the Future trilogy is coming to Netflix. That’s not one, not two, but three films following the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown in the DeLorean. There is nothing that defines the 80s more than Back to the Future, but we’re still waiting for those hover boards…
Jump for my love, jumpin’ for Hugh Grant’s dancing skills. As the Christmas countdown ticks away, give shopping a pass and instead sit down to a classic festive film. Love Actually is a festive feature that has truly stood the test of time with comedy, drama, love (duh) and relatable tales of life – can’t go wrong. Good on you Netflix for celebrating the season in style.
Peaky Blinders: Season 3
To be confirmed
The show of the moment is coming back to Netflix for fans to binge watch. Following the lives of Birmingham gangster Tommy Shelby and his family, Peaky Blinders is a show unlike any other.

Season one and two are already on Netflix and with season four currently on BBC 2, if you’re late to the party, you’ll not be long to catch up.
