When an internet video goes viral of family-man Nick Brewer holding up a sign stating “at 5 million views I die”, the race is well and truly on to get to the bottom of the video and the secret lives of those involved. Make sure you watch this one over the weekend, because once you start there’s no way you will want to stop.
This classic Aussie show will make you cry and laugh-out-loud as it follows thirty-something year old obstetrician Nina Proudman as she searches for love whilst dealing with her crazy family in the heart of Fitzroy, Melbourne. A recommendation from both Emma and Elle, I’m sure you’ll hear us all talking about this one in the salon as we all binge our way through all seven seasons.

This show was all the talk in the salon when it first aired on Netflix, and we are now eagerly waiting for the new season to start! This psychological thriller will keep you guessing all the way through!

When we think binge, we think Friends! Known by all, there’s a reason why this nearly 30 year old show is still on repeat in most households.

Gossip Girl, Netflix/Stan
We couldn’t agree more with Sammy for this suggestion! The OG Gossip Girl (not the new retake of the show) is high up on our binge-worthy list. All about the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite, this show will make you envious of the designer lifestyles, invested in the drama of Blair Waldorf and her minions and fall in love with infamous playboy Chuck Bass.

Peaky Blinders, Netflix
Set in Birmingham in the early 20th century, this show follows the Shelby family and the infamous peaky blinders gang through their crimes, love, drugs and scandals. You won’t be able to peel your eyes from the screen with this show, and when we say this show, we really mean Tommy Shelby himself (insert heart eyes).
The O.C., Stan
This throwback show will take you back to the early 2000’s when headscarves, hoop earrings and kitten heels were all the rage. When Ryan Atwood arrives in Newport Beach, Orange County, he faces a culture shock going from his poverty and domestic violent background to living in this superficial high-class society. Find out how he survives this new lifestyle through the drama, love, make-ups and break-ups of adolescence in the O.C.
Brooklyn 99, Netflix
Set in the 99th precinct of the New York City Police Department, Brooklyn 99 is the police comedy you never knew you needed in your life. Unlike your other cop shows, B99 doesn’t have a focus on the cases of criminals but more on the lives of the officers and their day to day jobs in the precinct.

Greys Anatomy, Stan
Get ready to begin an emotional rollercoaster with this one as it is guaranteed to tug on the heart strings.

Think all things fashion, love, friendship and womanhood! This show is one of the most relatable there is, following the journey of three millennial best friends, Kat, Sutton and Tiny Jane, who are dealing with the curve balls life throws at us in style. You’ll support Kat in her exploration of her sexuality and standing up for what is right, cheer for Sutton as she falls in love with a man off limits and want to hold Jane’s hand as she faces one of the hardest decisions any woman has to make.
