Coronavirus might have halted plans outside of the house, but when it comes to our ever-growing watch lists its something of a blessing. If you’re stuck for things to watch during self-isolation, check out some of these hit real-life Nexflix shows to help the time pass by more quickly!
Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness
I’m a sucker for a real-life documentary series and I was gripped by this new show. Tiger King centres on Joe Exotic; a gun-toting, polygamist country-western singer, who owns an Oklahoma roadside zoo and sports a questionable mullet.
The 7-part series takes its share of twists and turns, through to January this year, when Joe was sentenced to 22 years in prison for his plot to kill an animal rights activist and other wildlife violations. I’m gonna say nothing more, except – this is all real!
Next in Fashion
Throwing back to the good old days of Project Runway, Next in Fashion his hosted by Queer Eye star Tan France and model Alexa Chung, and features aspiring designers competing for a chance to break into the industry. Each episode features contestants competing in design rounds based on trends and styles that influence the season, as 18 are whittled down to one winner.
Season 1 debuted in January, with a second likely to begin filming soon, now’s the perfect time to catch up, as 18 more contestants gear up to compete for the coveted £250,000 prize to kickstart their design business.
Don’t Fuck With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer
I’ve never not wanted a show to end as much as I didn’t want Don’t Fuck With Cats to end. Wow. This three-part documentary series is about the crimes of Canadian killer, Luka Magnotta, who started off by posting videos online of him killing animals before he moved on to killing people too – chilling stuff.
There’s no gruesome footage or anything like that, but the show is a fascinating look behind the scenes of the social media users who worked tirelessly to track down Magnotta and bring him to justice
Love Is Blind
Just as Love Island came to an end, so came this brilliant binge-worthy show from Netflix. Airing nightly for 3 weeks, Love Is Blind is a social experiment where single men and women search for love and get engaged – all before meeting their new partner in person.
Sounds trivial, but it’s brilliant – and I’ve never felt anxiety like the moment they step up to the altar and decide whether or not to tie the knot. If you love Love Island, then this is for you – and even if not, give it a go!
RuPaul’s Drag Race
Yes, it’s back again for season 12, with a new batch of queens competing for the title of America’s Next Drag Superstar. After amassing it’s share of scandal before the first episode even got to air, the show is packed with sickening looks, jaw-dropping lip syncs, and an abundance of shade.
New episodes drop Saturdays and, in between, there’s a whole other 11 series to keep you going!
