The weather has really turned in Edinburgh over the past week or so. It has got much colder, so high up on my agenda is staying in and keeping warm. Weeknight cocktails out on the town have been traded for staying in, wrapping up under a cosy throw and drinking hot chocolate. And watching box sets. Lots of box sets.
I’m a huge lover of Netflix and so here is my pick of the six best box sets to see you through the winter.
1. The Bridge – This Scandinavian murder mystery drama will have you on the edge of your seat from the opening scenes.
2. The Good Wife – The UK version of Netflix has the first four seasons on offer. This easy-watching legal drama will have you hooked after only a few episodes.
3. Breaking Bad – I’m sure most of you will already be acquainted with Walt White, but I couldn’t possibly put together this list without a mention for this award-winning drama series.
4. Arrested Development – There’s a real collection of characters in this show. It’s light hearted and at just 20 minutes an episode, they are perfect for watching back-to-back.
5. Spiral – Based in Paris, this crime drama follows the French police force as they attempt to solve a series of gruesome crimes. This is a good one if you’re a fan of murder-mystery dramas.
6. The Killing – I have watched both the American and the Scandinavian version of The Killing and loved both in equal measure. And as you might have guessed, it is about … a killing.
Have you seen any of these? If you’re a Netflix lover and there’s other things on there I should be watching, let me know!
