Netflix Shows to Watch Together

Blog note: This post contains affiliate links. They do not harm you in any way, but they do help us keep the blog running.

Netflix has probably been one of our best investments. We watch it more than cable and have found several TV shows on there that we can enjoy together. Below are our top three shows and a mini story of how we started watching each show.

1. Being Human - Being Human is a show about a vampire and werewolf who move into a new house together and discover that there is a ghost lingering in the house. The three encounter many adventures and obstacles as they try to navigate being supernatural in a human dominated world. We first found this show on Syfy one day when we were channel surfing. A random episode was on and we found ourselves enjoying it a lot, so we headed over to Netflix and after a quick search, we found it and started watching. We've now finished the entire series and highly recommend it to others!

2. Supernatural - A love for Supernatural is one of those things we had in common when we first started dating. We both chose not to have cable and it meant that we had fallen behind on watching episodes of this enjoyable show that follows two brothers who are fighting supernatural beings in order to prevent the apocalypse. (There's much more to the plot than that but I don't want to spoil anything or go on for too long!) We recently decided to revisit it on Netflix and started watching from the beginning. We're currently on season 7 and it's definitely among our daily rotation of shows.

3. Once Upon a Time - Once Upon a Time was a show that was recommended to us by our best friends. I started watching it during a deployment and after a few episodes, I decided to set it aside until the husband came home. I hoped he would enjoy it as much as me and I was right! He randomly picked it from the list one night and we started watching all of the episodes that were available on Netflix. We're currently waiting for the latest season to come available. It's an interesting show that follows the lives of classic fairy tale characters who have been trapped in our world.

As you can tell, we enjoy fantasy and supernatural shows a lot. We're also open to other suggestions as well. These are the shows we've watched together - if you were to look at our list, you'd see tons of variety as you branched into the shows we've each watched alone.

Do you have a Netflix account? (If no, it's totally worth the $8.99 a month! Those links above go to the first season of each show so that you can get a better synopsis. They also prove that a season of each of these shows costs more than one month of Netflix! Side note: I'm just sharing my love of Netflix...we are no way affiliated with Netflix.)

What's your favorite Netflix show?

  4. I love Once Upon a Time and as you, we are patiently waiting for the next season to premiere on netflix....it is taking forever. Another great show I love is "Witches of East End"---I hate that it was cancelled. I loved the story line and the actors, they were all so good!

  7. I love my Netflix, but I also hate my Netflix as it gets me hooked on shows that I thought I had missed :) I discovered Scandal through Netflix and literally binge watched previous seasons to catch up without having to suffer adverts. Thanks for some new suggestions

  9. I loved the BBC series Being Human. I was so sad when it ended. Another great series is Broadchurch. Love it!

  10. We were super-late on the bandwagon, but we watched all of Breaking Bad on Netflix. We also watched Parenthood on regular cable as it was happening, but now that the series is over we like to watch the old episodes on Netflix. Orange is the New Black is the one we just got into, though we have not had much time for it lately.

    Of course, we watch these when the kids go to bed :)
