The Best Background Netflix Series

These rankings are definitely gonna start a fight but I mean this is my opinion so… go away. Also if you didn’t understand the title… go to school… I mean, it just means short episodes that you don’t need to concentrate on. Warning, you will get attached to these and the characters leading to a moment of emptiness in your life where you don’t know how to act. But don’t worry, you will find another series just as good. I am also going to make this fair by not adding in ‘friends’. It will always be the first place in my heart but like we gotta switch it up a wee bit ya know. So to build ✨tension✨lets start with number 10 :0

10. The Big Bang Theory

We are straight in with a classic. Can I just mention that you don’t have to be really smart or know anything about physics and stuff to watch this. In fact it actually makes it a lot better. It always seems like a comic book person kind of genre but really it’s just funny and good to watch when you can’t be bothered to watch long episodes or think at all for that matter.

9. Full house

You may be more familiar with the newer series of this called fuller house but I’m saying this one because, for me, the old iconic series are always better. They are so funny, different and kind of comforting for some reason. Yes the camera quality is similar to a Samsungs but we move, it’s fine. However, I do love the fuller house but yeah this better to be honest. Very heartwarming and you feel like a part of the family. Definitely broke my heart when it ended.

8. Good Girls

Ok, I have to admit, these episodes are like 40 minutes long but it is still one where you don’t need to concentrate. The actresses and actors are all literally hilarious and I love it so much. If anything, the long episodes are better because you would end up watching another anyways if they were shorter because they are too good. Like defo a solid plotline and I guess you have to concentrate a tiny bit but I mean it’s a solid plotline and never gets boring.

7. Brooklyn 99

Right so, so far I am literally contemplating the order of all of these but it literally doesn’t matter. They are all great. Anyways, you have definitely heard of this show unless you are a literally 50-year-old person with a 9 to 5 job and kids. But just know, after a long exhausting day, the kids are asleep, your old back is aching, you will be loving this show. Full of laughs. Lots of cool stuff, real-life stuff as well, but made numerous. 10 out of 10 do recommend. Also, I want to add that 50 years old isn’t old, like it was just the first number that came to my head so yeah 🙂

6. Santa Clarita Diet

This one can be quite hit or miss because my parents didn’t adore it, but bitch you better know I loved it. It is just so ridiculous but like they actually make it work. It has pretty big names too, like Drew Barrymore. Don’t even get me started with her but I literally love her so is such a great actress and seems like a genuinely lovely person. So yeah, by the off chance she will ever see this, hello…Anyways, but no it is definitely different but it is hilarious despite that. A must watch

5. Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Bitch I could write a whole book about the first season alone. Personally I have only seen the first four because that’s the only ones on Netflix (which is defo a problem) but THE AMOUNT OF DRAMA LITERALLY GIVES ME LIFE, like I literally thought my family had fights. I was wrong ahahaha literally Kim could drop-kick her mum off the roof and they would forgive each other. Of course they don’t instantly forgive the other person but eventually. My dad says they are ridiculous and it’s so bad… bitch you watch the bloody countdown so I think your opinion is invalid. It actually made me respect them more because you can see that they really do work for it and their lives are stressful. I mean I couldn’t be putting up with it.

4. Atypical

Right this one really does get you in the feels. I kind of didn’t really know whether to put it in the 
‘background series’ category because it is actually a serious, eye-opening topic. Like it talks about real stuff and like mental health and autism and it gives you a greater understanding of how people think. But it is still one that is fun to watch and you don’t get bored. The episodes aren’t too long and you do get attached to the characters. So yeah this is just an overall great series and it is definitely one of my favs.

3. Friday Night Dinner

Right so if you are a true Brit you 100% will have heard of this. Literally so funny and I think that if you are an American you could still understand their accents. It is so hilarious and your like, wait, that is so relatable. And Jim, oh my god he is so cute. Like all the characters are so iconic and have their own thing. It is like you are part of the fam because you know what they are like and your just like ‘oh typical Jim ahaah’ you get me

2. The office

So I think I might start a wee fight with this. The office that I’m talking about is the US one. Hear me 
out, the UK one gives me weird vibes and I don’t know why. Both are cringy but then with the UK one I literally get panic attacks or something because it feels as though it’s real life, but it’s not, it’s all a script. The US one is so good. All the people are well known and really good actors. I actually love Jim though. Of course he is just a character but I want to grow up and marry a man like that. So men, take notes. But yeah the office has a lot of series but you get to know the characters and it’s really comforting.

1. Derry Girls

If you have not heard of this you are UNCULTURED. Literally, where have you been? It is so funny but what makes it funnier for me is that Americans literally have to use subtitles for it. Like seriously what the hell. I have rewatched it so many times and I love it so much. But then again, humours so subjective really. If you watched Derry girls you would get that. Either way though, subtitles or not, you have to watch this. I actually can’t put into words how much I love it. Please just watch it, please. Like I can’t say how funny it is and how great it is. I live in Northern Ireland and I went to see the wee mural in Derry and I was actually dying. Literally fan girl question mark. And then I drove past some of the places they filmed and I felt like I was in Hollywood or something, just a wee bit rougher ahaha. Derry girls 100% deserves first place, it literally has everything you could want. And I love all the characters, like I would have a heart attack if I saw one of them. Orla also gives me phoebe from friends vibes if you get me. I. LOVE. IT.

Anyways, thank you very much for reading this and I hope this gave you some great ideas, especially as we may be going back into lockdown. Stay safe and enjoy the shows.
