This might have been a show you flicked past before but we highly recommend you give it a watch!

  1. Locke and KeyLocke & Key

Locke and Key is a short and enjoyable watch that you don’t need to invest too much into (we’re basically saying it’s a good one to watch if you’re flicking through your phone at the same time!). This drama series is based on the original comic book of which three relatives realise they have magical powers after returning to their family house. Starring Darby Stanchfield, Conor Jessup, Emilia Jones and many others, this is a recent nugget on Netflix as it was only premiered on the site in February of this year.

This comedy series gets better by the season in a heart-warming, character driven way that is full of humour and fun that leaves you wanting more!

The plot thickens when Robert and Sol announce they have fallen in love with each other and are separating from their wives in order to tie the knot!

  1. The CodeThe Code (2011) on Netflix USA | Simulation hypothesis ...

While this political thriller doesn’t scream billions of dollars in budget, it is thoroughly engaging. The storyline is based on two brothers, one of whom is a computer whiz kid and the other a journalist. While investigating a deadly car crash they get involved in cracking a national conspiracy. It is definitely a ‘binge watch’ type of series so we recommend you start early as you won’t be able to stop!
