Everyone is always looking for Netflix recommendations, so I decided to ask Sarah what she thinks are the best shows and movies on Netflix.
1. Gilmore Girls – both the original and the arrival
On TV from 2000-2007, Gilmore Girls showed the story of a single mother, Lorelai, and her daughter, Rory, as they tackle family, friend, and romance struggles. The show also tackles generational differences and different social levels, bringing to light some of the issues they can present.
In 2016, Netflix revived the show with Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. It takes place nearly a decade after the last season of Gilmore Girls and continues to follow Lorelai and Rory and their struggles in current life.
Based on the 1989 film, Parenthood shares the story of the four Braverman siblings as they rely on each other to accomplish family life in the modern world. It was on TV from 2010-2015.
This Netflix original show is loosely based on the true story of Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal. We see how she went from basically nothing to a successful business woman and the struggles she encountered along the way.
4. House of Cards
Following U.S. Representative Francis Underwood, this Netflix original goes behind the scenes of the corruptions in American politics. The 5th season was just released on Netflix at the end of May.
5. New Girl
New Girl shows the story of a young woman who, after a bad break-up, moves into an apartment with three men. The show just wrapped up it’s 6th season in April.
6. The Crown
This Netflix original goes back to the 20th century to share stories from Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, romances, and political rivalries. It also follows a lot of events that helped mold the last half of the 20th century.
Sarah is also SUPER excited about a couple movies that will be on Netflix this month. Dreamwork’s Trolls will be out June 7, and Disney’s Moana will be up on June 20. These are the perfect movies to watch with your kids, but we also won’t tell if you watch them alone.
Make sure to listen to Sarah weekdays from 10am-3pm!
