My Netflix Picks

In my spare time I love to relax and i really do put my €7.99 Netflix Account to good use, I definitely get value for money.
So if your finding it hard to find something to watch, Heres some of my Favourite Tv Programmes, I normally do a Marathon Session when watching these LOL!!!!


I LOVED THIS SERIES, BUT UNFORTUNATELY NETFLIX REMOVED IT LAST YEAR, DEFINITELY WORTH DOWNLOADING IT TO WATCH!!!!
Secret Diary of a Call Girl is a British television drama broadcast on ITV2 from 2007 to 2011 based on the blog and books by the pseudonymous "Belle de Jour," starring Billie Piper as belle, a high-class London call girl.
The series, set in London, revolves around the life of Hannah Baxter, a seemingly normal woman, who lives a secret life as a call girl, under the pseudonym Belle. The series focuses on her professional and private life and its complications as they collide. However, she receives help and advice from her best friend Ben, in most situations. In the second series premiere, a new call girl Bambi is introduced; Hannah becomes close friends with her, and frequently gives her advice regarding prostitution and her personal life.
Hannah, as the main character, also narrates the series, sometimes through voiceovers but more frequently she breaks the forth wall. During the first series the episodes are held together by a light story arc, however Series 2 and 3 have relied heavily on a story arc, usually in the form of Hannah's romances, namely with Alex and Duncan.
THE GOOD WIFE.
When a very public sex and political-corruption scandal lands her husband, Peter, in prison, Alicia Florrick must get past the humiliation and betrayal and assume responsibility for her family. She resumes her career as a defense attorney, shedding her persona as the embarrassed wife of a politician, and takes charge of her destiny. Four years later, Alicia decides to leave Lockhart/Gardner and start a new law firm with a colleague, Cary Agos. Now that Peter has won the gubernatorial election, Alicia must balance her evolving career and family responsibilities with her new position as first lady of Illinois.
    HOUSE OF CARDS
  1. U.S. Rep. Francis Underwood of South Carolina starts out as a ruthless politician seeking revenge in this Netflix original production. Promised the post of Secretary of State in exchange for his support, his efforts help to ensure the election of Garrett Walker to the presidency. But Walker changes his mind before the inauguration, telling Underwood he's too valuable in Congress. Outwardly, Underwood accepts his marching orders, but secretly he and his wife, an environmental activist, make a pact to destroy Walker and his allies. Based on the U.K. miniseries of the same name, the U.S. version offers a look behind the scenes at the greed and corruption in American politics. A number of real-life media figures make cameo appearances.

GOSSIP GIRL.
High school is over for the privileged former students at an exclusive prep school on Manhattan's Upper East Side, but Gossip Girl still shares text-messaged scoops on scandals and heartache. As the graduates embark on their futures, with some attending college and others focusing on burgeoning careers, Gossip Girl continues to stir the pot and feed any potential scandals. And still the identity of Gossip Girl remains a mystery


    HOMELAND.
  1. When Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody returns home following eight years in captivity, CIA agent Carrie Mathison thinks he has turned and is connected to a terror plot to be carried out on American soil, and she engages him in a dangerous game of cat and mouse that puts America's national security at risk. Later on, Carrie gets a promotion and returns to the front lines overseas. She is assigned to one of the CIA's most volatile and dangerous stations in the Middle East, where she is in the heart of battle in the war on terror.
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK.
  1. Piper Chapman is a public relations executive with a career and a fiance when her past suddenly catches up to her. In her mid-30s she is sentenced to a year in a minimum-security women's prison in Connecticut for her association with a drug runner 10 years earlier. This Netflix original series is based on the book of the same title. Forced to trade power suits for prison orange, Chapman makes her way through the corrections system and adjusts to life behind bars, making friends with the many eccentric, unusual and unexpected people she meets.

 BREAKING BAD.
  1. Mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher Walter White thinks his life can't get much worse. His salary barely makes ends meet, a situation not likely to improve once his pregnant wife gives birth, and their teenage son is battling cerebral palsy. But Walter is dumbstruck when he learns he has terminal cancer. Realizing that his illness probably will ruin his family financially, Walter makes a desperate bid to earn as much money as he can in the time he has left by turning an old RV into a meth lab on wheels.

THE KILLING.
  1. Based partly on a popular Danish TV series, "The Killing" is a moody, character-driven detective procedural that weaves a murder mystery through a full season or more. The stories unfold through the eyes of Sarah Linden, a detective with the Seattle Police Department and who, at first, must mentor Detective Stephen Holder, a former narcotics cop. While their backgrounds produce investigative styles that clash -- she's by-the-book, he's freewheeling -- they manage to pull together for the case.

SATISFACTION.
NETFLIX ALSO REMOVED THIS SERIES LAST YEAR, AGAIN WORTH A DOWNLOAD I WATCHED ALL 3 SERIES IN A WEEK.
Satisfaction is set in and around '232', an up-market city brothel. The show is centered on five high class escorts and their manager as they juggle the pressures of their private lives with their profession. Chloe (Diana Glenn) tells her 14-year-old daughter that she works in a casino, but realises that she will fairly soon learn the truth. Mel (Madeleine West) is being pursued by Nick (Robert Mammone), the owner of '232', whose daughter, Natalie (Kestie Morassi), is the manager. Tippi (Bojana Novakovic), a beautiful and vivacious young blonde, is taking classes in creative writing. Heather (Peta Sergeant), a dominatrix, is a lesbian whose partner, Ally, is desperate to have a baby. And Lauren (Alison Whyte), an older woman who works as receptionist, is toying with the idea of moving away from the desk and becoming a prostitute.
