Netflix Binge List
John and I have been browsing Netflix recently looking for new programmes to watch but also looking forward to the return of some new seasons of series that we have watched over the last few years. Check out our Netflix binge list for what we will watching this Autumn.

This Is Us

We started watching This Is Us last year and we binge watched the first two seasons but we then had to wait to watch the third season, which we did just recently. Luckily season four has already started so in a couple of weeks we will continue to watch.

If you’ve not seen This Is Us before it’s a really easy watching show that follows the lives of the Pearson family. Mainly we follow the lives of three siblings Kevin, Kate and Randall known as the big three. The show mainly takes place in the present however they use flashbacks to show the families past and most recently they’ve now started to show flash forwards of what their lives look like in the future.

At times it can be a little bit confusing as you are watching three timelines and sometimes more but you will soon get into it and we were hooked. Really looking forward to the fourth season which premiered on September 24.

The Affair

We stumbled across The Affair whilst browsing Netflix a few years ago. It follows the relationship between two main characters Noah Salaway and Alison Lockhart who meet and have an affair.

We then see the impact their affair has on their partners, family and friends. I am a huge fan of Joshua Jackson and have been since his Dawsons Creek days and he is great in The Affair, playing Alisons husband Cole. The first two seasons were fantastic however the third season lost it a little for me and I really struggled to keep up, it wasn’t my favourite season however it pulled it back in season four.  The fifth and final season is available to watch now I’m really looking forward to seeing how the show ends and what happens to the main characters.


Unbelievable is a Netflix Original series and we are really looking forward to watching it, after reading some amazing reviews.

 Unbelievable is a miniseries drama about a series of rapes in Washington and Colorado. The series is  actually based on a true story. It’s not our usual choice of programme but with just eight episodes I would really like to give this a try. If you have managed to watch this please do leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts.


Last but not least I am really hoping that the rumours are true and that You series 2 will be available to watch in October. Again this was something we just stumbled upon and it’s not usual for us to watch a psychological thriller series. After watching the first episode we had to carry on and watch all 10 episodes to find out what happened to Joe a big store manager at Moonies who stalks and then begins to date a young girl called Beck. Although there is no official date of season 2  I’m hoping that  we will be able to watch it this Autumn.

Grey’s Anatomy

So this isn't a Netflix show however I had to include it on our list. I’m sure even if you’ve never watched a single episode of Grey’s Anatomy you will most probably know of the show and what it’s about. Grey’s Anatomy is a medical drama that follows the lives of interns, residents and doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. We mainly follow the life of Meredith Grey the daughter of an esteemed general surgeon named Alice Gray. The show began in 2005 and is now up to series 16 which premiered on September 26.

Grey’s Anatomy is probably one of the best and worst things I’ve ever watched in my entire life. I have laughed but I have also cried a lot watching it so if you haven’t seen it and you’re beginning your Grey’s Anatomy journey then please have a box of tissues to hand.

So these are our top five binge watching programmes that we will be watching this Autumn. If you have any different series please do let us know as we are always looking for new recommendations.



  1. I'm always looking for new things to watch on Netflix and haven't watched any of these yet so will make a note for when we finish our current binge!

  2. I still love Greys Anatomy, it is my go to series. I still need to catch up with the newer episodes!

  3. Im hopeless at sitting and watching anything - have seen a bit of greys anatomy-enough said!

  4. I've just started The Affair and quite like it so far but only a few episodes in.

  5. A great selection here. The wife is still obsessed with GA even all these years later lol

  6. Oooo This is Us is back? Shall add that to my watch list for the month

  7. What a great list of things to binge watch this autumn. I’m looking forward to Riverdale coming back and I’m catching up on Glitch at the moment.

  8. At our house, we've been watching Orange is the New Black. Also, Brene Brown's latest talk, have you seen it? She's always so great. xx

  9. So many great netflix watch list. This a must be a good weekend bonding with the fam. Will def check this.

  10. I haven't seen any of these, though I've had a few recommendations for Unbelievable but just not been in the right frame of mind to watch it. Just finished watching Borderliner (Grenseland), a Norwegian crime drama. It was really good up until the last ten minutes of the final epsiode where they just leave a lot of questions unanswered which felt like a bit of a cop out.


Thanks for your comments. I love reading them :)
