Doggy Style: Netflix and Chill

image

You have a relaxing night in, with nowhere to go, so what are you going to do? You could cook, you could clean, or you could start a new series on Netflix, while wearing your pajamas with your sore paws propped up or buried in a bowl of insanely buttery popcorn.

Figuring out what to watch on Netflix can be a long and draining process. There is so much to choose from and not a whole lot of patience to give. You wanted a relaxing evening, so you certainly don’t want to waste precious belly-rubbing and back laying time on a sometimes endless and draining search.

Marlee and me have some of our current favorite Netflix TV series listed below. Check them out and begin to waste hours of your life getting lost in the world of a surgeon, a female criminal in prison, a highschool Senior, a mole woman, or countless other characters. Trust us. All we do is Netflix and chill, so we would not lead you astray.

1. Greys Anatomy – One of the longest running and most amazing series ever! I mean Marlee binged watched the first 11 seasons of this on Netflix in a little over a month. I think she loves this show more than me, which is almost as annoying as her talking in medical terms or diagnosing nonexistent diseases that she knows nothing about. I’m afraid that if I start coughing, she will cut me open and dig around in my insides to find a solution. But come on mom, it’s just a cough; I am not dying. Sometimes I have to look at her and remind her that she is not a surgeon and she needs to put the steak knife away. This show will make you act like a surgeon,  will make you slightly mental, and will make you yell out McDreamy in your sleep. But, it is totally worth the watch. Season 12 is currently airing on TV.

2. Private Practice- If you like Greys Anatomy, than this is the perfect show to follow it up with. It is a spinoff of Greys and includes many of the characters that you grew to love, or even hate, on that show. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry a lot. It will even make you want to move to Los Angles. This show stopped after a few seasons, but still remains a must watch on Netflix.

3. One Tree Hill- It starred the sexy Chad Michael Murray before he was showing his abs and dashing smile in any big screen movie. It made your high school experience seem a whole lot simpler, but a whole lot more boring. It also made your high school quarterback and head cheerleader look like total ogers. It was the show that established the epitome of the perfect high school sweetheart relationship. It will either make you believe in true love, or cough up a hair ball in disgust. Either way, it is one that should not go unwatched.

4. Dawson’s Creek- All you 90s kids will appreciate this suggestion. If you’re like Marlee, you grew up watching reruns of this on TV. Also, if you loved One Tree Hill, this is one that you will enjoy as well. It has some good looking guys, some amazing friendships, and tons of complicated but beautiful relationships. You will fall in love with each character, as you follow them from Sophomore year, all the way into life after college.

5. Parenthood- This is one that Marlee and I are currently watching and is definitely one that we are quickly falling in love with. It showcases the relationships between a close knit family and the problems that they go through as they each mature and grow. A lot of the problems and relationships are some that we can all relate to in some way. The families in this show remind us of our loved ones and will pull at your heart strings or make you chuckle thinking of your own crazy uncle or outrageously annoying younger brother. You will also recognize many of the main characters from other popular shows or movies that you probably have watched.

6. Orange is the New Black- I am sure you have heard at least one of your friends talk about this strange, funny, but insanely vulgar show. It follows the life of numerous women, from different backgrounds, as they maneuver their way through the system and try to survive and thrive by any means possible while being locked up. It will make you laugh and will definitely make you say “what the world” quite a few times. It will even make being locked up seem cool and orange jumpsuits seem totally fashionable. This series is a Netflix Original and recently aired season three.

7. Unbreakable- If you are like Marlee and live for corny and completely weird things, then you will love this show. It stars the red headed woman from Bridesmaids, and if you thought she couldn’t get any more strange, then you were sadly mistaken. She is totally off the charts on the weirdness scale when it comes to this show. However, it is belly aching funny, which for me, is a good thing. Belly aches bring me belly rubs. Anyway, this show follows the life of a innocent woman as she makes her way in New York City, after living underground as a mole woman due to being told that the end of the world had already happened. It will make you cry with laughter. So roll on your backs and get ready for some belly aching laughs and tears.

8. American Horror Story- A totally twisted and messed up series. If you like crying in terror, covering your eyes to watch the TV through your finger cracks, and trembling in the fetal position, than you will love this show. It has some weird characters and storylines and will definitely guarantee nightmares. So grab a pillow and remember to turn a lamp on. Hopefully you aren’t sleeping alone after watching this series.

9. Breaking Bad- One that Marlee and I have not personally watched, but have heard countless good things about from Zach and people at work or the dog park. Basically what we have gathered, is if you like drugs (specifically Meth) and breaking the law, than this is the show for you. Just remember two things while watching this show: the law is your friend and drugs are bad for you. Of course, after watching Orange is the New Black, being locked up, might not seem so bad. But please, don’t do drugs or make them. Just watch the show and enjoy from a safe distance.

10. Grace and Frankie- Another Netflix original show that will have you busting a gut from laughter. This show follows the lives of two older women (one being the amazing Jane Fonda) as they try to figure life out after being told that their long time husbands have been gay together for years. The women start off angry and confused, but quickly form a strong bond and friendship, that helps them deal with the huge life adjustment. They are witty and they are fiery. They will make you laugh the hardest you have ever laughed in a short 30 minute time span.

So now you are properly equipped for a relaxing night ahead. A new and exciting series is just a click away.

Prop up your paws, roll on your back, and just Netflix and chill, the way us dogs do.
