3 Netflix feel good films to cosy up to and watch this Sunday evening

 Your new favourite TV shows.

When searching the internet to find a new show, it can be an overwhelming task to narrow down the choices.

From dramas to comedies, dark and twisted to light and uplifting, there can sometimes be more choice than we know what to do with. And there’s nothing worse than committing to a show and realising three episodes in that it’s total shite.

Yep, having wasted nearly three hours of our time and growing attached to some of the painfully constructed characters, we’re left feeling almost betrayed.

However, if there is one place that never leaves us down, that always keeps us entertained, it’s Netflix. Yes, our loyalty to the site has only grown over the years thanks to their track record of producing killer content.

Well, they’re not slowing down anytime soon and they’ve just released a whole new selection of shows to enjoy.

Here are six worth binge watching this week.
