3 More Netflix Shows You Should Be Watching

Monday, September 3, 2018

Stay Here
I'm so happy Netflix is making home design shows! We don't have cable, so I've seriously missed HGTV. Genevieve Gorder has been one of my favorite tv designers for years, so when I saw her face on Netflix I clicked right away! This show is about people who are renting out their homes on Airbnb or VRBO and they haven't had much success. These guys come in to redecorate and help them give their guests a 5 star experience. Of course the places turn out so nice, but they also give really helpful tips on this show which I found interesting. I would totally stay on the houseboat in episode 1 and the cottage in the vineyard later in the season!

Marching Orders
I'm not sure if I've revealed that I was a band geek in school? I became first chair in flute after starting off with the french horn and hating it. Band was so hard and my band director made me cry a number of times. Marching Orders is about the marching band at Bethune Cookman in Daytona. Their band is exclusive to say the least! It was featured in the movie Drumline. This show documents some veterans and new recruits in one of the most serious marching bands in the country. The episodes are really short and they will make you want to go to a football game!

Amazing Interiors
Obviously, I have a thing for interiors and home shows! Amazing Interiors features just that-amazing homes. I really like that each episode highlights a work in progress as well as some established interiors. It's fascinating to see what other people have done with their passions and what people are willing to spend money on! The house within a greenhouse gave me some serious dream home inspiration. 

Bonus Movie: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society
Oh my goodness, what a good movie! Lily James does an amazing job as an WWII era author who visits an unusual book club on the island of Guernsey. It's sweet, moving and wonderfully acted. I didn't realize it was a book, and I definitely have it on my to-read list now. 

Leave a comment below with your current favorite Netflix obsessions! We are still rewatching The Office, but these were fun to watch in between episode binging.


  1. We got rid of satellite so Netflix is my friend now too. I love the movie and also didn’t know it was a book until after I watched it. I didn’t know Genevieve was in that one show but now I will have to watch it.

  2. I hope that UK Netflix is showing 'Guernsey' - it is a perfect curl up film! Love anything from that era - and that Lily James transitioned from Downton - I've seem the poster a million times and did not realise it was her! Hope you are having a great long weekend - Joanne x

  3. I haven't seen Guernsey in my Netflix feed here in Singas, hopefully it's there...! I'm like on a total rom com kick at the moment and loved The Kissing Booth and To the Boys I've Loved Before (or something like that) for something fun and fluffy.

  4. Guernsey is seriously the cutest movie on Netflix. The book is equally charming and sweetly sad/hopeful. You should absolutely read it!
    Ummm... I had no idea the show Marching Orders existed. I was in band in hs, too. I still work in the marching industry and we work closely with high schools and drum corps. I'm super interested in catching this show! Thanks for sharing it!

  5. I am so out of it with tv technology so sorry if these aren't netflix, but here's what we're watching! the guys are obsessed with jack ryan, I am obsessed with sharp objects (gillian flynn), bloodline, ozark, there was another show coming out today and I forgot the name already haha! ps I also played the clarinet in middle school :)

  6. I don't have cable either so I"m always looking for new series- "Stay Here" sounds so fun! Although I'm pretty sure it would make me want to take a vacation! :)

  7. I do recall seeing Amazing Interiors as I was browsing Netflix, I guess I should check it out! Thanks for your recommendations!

  8. Wow! I'm excited to see each of these! I'm especially intrigued by the marching band one. Daytona is not too far from where I live.
