The Best Shows To Watch On Netflix This October

The Best Shows To Watch On Netflix This October

Netflix has so many comedy series, easy-to-watch sitcoms and crime documentaries to choose from, but what are the best shows to watch on Netflix this October? Whether you’re into American shows, comedy travel documentaries, real-life crime stories or feel-good BBC series, I’ve found the perfect picks for you…

A Comedic Sitcom With A Romantic Twist: The Good Place

If you’re on the lookout for an easy-to-watch, feel-good series, then this is it!

Funny and heart-warming, this is my go-to relax-in-front-of-the-television-and-do-nothing kind of show.

When Eleanor wakes up in the afterlife, she finds herself in The Good Place, the town where those who have been good throughout their lives get to spend eternity. Eleanor quickly realises, though, that she was never meant to be there. She must then start to right her wrongs and earn her spot.

There are three seasons to watch, with new episodes of the fourth series being released every week.

A Comedy Travel Documentary: Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father

If you like stand-up comedy, then this is one of the best shows to watch on Netflix this October!

Laugh-out loud, this documentary follows the unique father-son duo as they travel the world. It’s comedy gold!

This comedy series began because Jack Whitehall wanted to create the gap year experience he never had. Two more series have since been released. While Jack is an eccentric and somewhat immature character, his father is far more reserved. It is the contrast between the two that makes this show so entertaining!

The third season has just launched on Netflix.

A Crime Drama Based On A True Story: Unbelievable

While at times hard to stomach, Unbelievable is undeniably one of the best shows to watch on Netflix this October.

Beautifully crafted, acted and written, this miniseries tells an important story of rape culture and injustice.

A young woman, Marie Adler, is brutally raped in her own home. When she reports the crime, both the police and the people around her accuse her of lying and she’s quickly pressured into retracting her statement. Years later, two female detectives investigate eerily similar attacks and uncover the whole truth.

You can watch the full series on Netflix now.

A Period Drama: Call The Midwide

If you missed it on the BBC, you can catch up on all of the Call the Midwife episodes on Netflix, as season 7 has just been added to the streaming network.

Call The Midwife portrays important topics surrounding maternal health without being difficult to watch. A must-see!

Set in impoverished East London in the 1950s and 1960s, Call The Midwife follows the story of a group of midwives working tirelessly to look after new and future mothers. The show covers meaty topics like contraception, unwanted pregnancy, the stigma around single mothers and so much more, without being heavy or difficult to watch. Trust me, you’re going to love it!

And there you have it, four of the best shows to watch on Netflix this October.
