5 Netflix Shows To Sink Your Teeth Into Over The Long Weekend

Because what's a long weekend without a Netflix binge?

Living With Yourself

Paul Rudd is like a fine wine, and anything he stars in is automatically added to my must-watch list. Living With Yourself shows a pretty run down Paul, who’s basically unhappy in all aspects of his life. While going through problem after problem, he hears of a mysterious, life-changing procedure at a less than glamorous looking strip mall spa.

He spends his life savings on this procedure only to discover that he’s been replaced with an all-round better version of himself. Naturally, chaos ensues. Plus, it also stars one of our fave Irish gals, Aisling Bea. The eight short episodes will make for the perfect addition to your hangover routine this Sunday.


This harrowing story may be too much for you to watch in a fragile, hungover state, so maybe give this one a binge if you’ve no plans for Prosecco over the bank holiday. The eight episode drama series is based on the 2015 news article “An Unbelievable Story of Rape”, and tells the story of Marie, a teenager who reported a rape and then recanted, and two detectives who are eager to find the truth.

Grace & Frankie

OK, so unless you’re not going to enjoy a wink of sleep, you’re not going to binge all of Grace & Frankie in one long weekend. Grace & Frankie have been around quite a while, but if you haven’t yet watched it, it’s worth getting through at least a season or two. The two unlikely friends come together after their husbands announce that they’ve been in love the past 20 years and are due to be married. This is the perfect show for a chilled weekend, it’ll have you laughing, crying and cringing the whole way through.


Honestly, is there anything better than a good aul’ crime drama? Nope, don’t think so. Criminal focuses on 12 stories, each one as intense as the next. All set in the four walls of an interview room at a police station, the detectives on the case have limited time to weed out the truth from each interview.

Derry Girls

Ending on a positive note – if you haven’t yet binged the first season of Derry Girls on Netflix, where have you been? We’ll never tire of Michelle’s IDGAF attitude, Orla’s gas one-liners, Clare’s voice of reason, Erin’s sarcasm, and even the awkwardness of English James.

With the miserable weather, a Netflix binge sounds nothing less than fabulous. But, if you fancy getting into the Halloween spirit, we’ve rounded up six spooky movies for the perfect night in.
