If you’re in need of a laugh and an easy watch after work in the evenings, Modern Family may be the one for you. Following the extended Pritchett- Dunphy family as they manage life as a true modern family unit, with adoptions, step parents and teenagers in the mix there’s not an episode that doesn’t bring laugh out loud moments.

3. Instant Hotel

If you enjoy reality competition shows meets home shows this is one for you. Australian homeowners stay in their competitors rentals and score each other at the end of the stay in order to try and win the title of best “instant hotel”. Come dine with me vibes except with houses, If watching people enjoy a holiday sounds right up your street, there’s two seasons of this one awaiting you!

4. The Twilight Saga

Yes, all of them are on Netflix and ready to be binged. The classic cheesiness of these movies are all part of the charm and once you start the age old vampire vs werewolf love story you really can’t stop, taking you back to the old Twi-hard days may be just what you need to escape during a dull week. Has your original stance on team Edward vs team Jacob changed since then?

5. You’ve got mail

So we’re a sucker for a rom-com, what’s the crime? Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in this deliciously 90’s movie following two people who fall in love online while their real lives are crossing in a much less romantic way… The old school Tinder! Get your hopeless romantic out on a rainy night.

6. Work It

If your guilty pleasure is teen romantic comedies like The Kissing Booth, a new release called Work It may be just what brightens up your week. A coming of age, transformation story of a high school senior who transforms her underdog group into dance team champions to get into her late father’s college. All the cheesy, cringeworthy content in a feel good movie, maybe one for the hump day?

7. Sex and the City (1/2)

Catch up with your favourite girl gang and transport yourself off to the fabulous locations they visit in their Wealthy New Yorker lives. The glamour and fashion as well as the great storylines which complement the series perfectly are sure to leave you in the mood for a girls trip of your own, staycation of course, or even a wine and takeout night, both can work!

So get the wine and snacks and settle in for your week of feel good watching.
