Netflix Picks for Your Winter Binge Watch
THIS SERIES!! Seriously! Where do you start? An American mystery, sci-fi and frankly stunningly executed series only spans for 2 seasons. It is not currently confirmed for a third either. Do not let that put you off from opening your heart and mind to Prairie and her incredible story.
Once growing up in the harsh colds of Russia we follow her through a tragic accident that makes her blind. Travelling to America and becoming adopted by her parents. To eventually running away from home and abruptly returning 7 years later but able to see? Becoming the OA. What happened to her and others in those 7 years is unbelievable to most. So she creates her own group of friends to share her tale with.
The interwoven lives and stories of these characters will defy the odds of friendship, science and so much more. It really is an emotional rollercoaster of love, fear, excitement and questions. You will not be disappointed.

This programme has now come to finish but really does tell a fantastic story you thought you knew. This also spans for 7 seasons so some series binge watch material.
We follow the residents of a small town with a big secret. Everyone who lives in Storybrooke is a character from all your favourite fairy tales. Forget what you know however as the twist and turns will have you double, nay, triple guessing yourself and the characters.
