7 Netflix Series I’ve Been Watching Lately

7 netflix series i've been watching header

Denmark is no longer in a lockdown, but there are still many restrictions such as needing a negative covid test to go out to eat, to the movies, museums, and even to school (I have to have a test done every week now for my Danish school). I have been spending a lot of time at home so for this post, I wanted to share 7 series I have been watching these past few months on Netflix.

The Irregulars

The Irregulars is set in Victorian London, and it follows a group of teens who are living on the streets. John Watson then requests their help to solve supernatural crimes while they search for his business partner Sherlock Holmes. I enjoyed this series, but it seems like many people did not because they expected a series focused on Sherlock Holmes like with Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock. Sherlock does not appear as a character until later on in The Irregulars as the main focus is on the teens and them solving the crimes. Also, others complained that the series is not historically accurate, but how historically accurate is the Sherlock Holmes universe? Since I did not expect a historically accurate series focused on Sherlock Holmes, I was able to enjoy it. Sadly Netflix announced the series was canceled this month, but I would still recommend watching it as it was interesting to see a different take on the Sherlock Holmes universe.

Genres: Mystery, Crime, Drama, and Supernatural

¿Quién mató a Sara?/Who Killed Sara?

Who Killed Sara? follows Alex Guzmán who spent 18 years in prison after he was framed for his sister’s murder. Once he is released, he is intent on finding out who killed Sara and getting revenge on the Lazcano family. First off, this series is in Spanish, but there is the option to watch it with subtitles or have it dubbed (I watched it with subtitles). The series was interesting to watch because it seemed like everyone had a motive to kill Sara, and you learn more and more about Sara and the Lazcano family as the series goes on. There is also a twist that I did not see coming. Season 2 of Who Killed Sara? was released last week, and I am looking forward to watching it soon.

Genres: Mystery, Crime, and Drama

Behind Her Eyes

Behind Her Eyes follows Louise who is a single mother and has a part-time job at a psychiatrist’s office. She begins an affair with her new boss David and has an unlikely friendship with his wife Adele. However, Louise soon finds herself caught in a dangerous web of secrets. Behind Her Eyes is a slow-burn series, which is probably not for everyone , but I enjoyed it. You learn more about the character’s past throughout the series, and there are also unexpected plot twists, which made the series even more interesting.

Genres: Mystery, Psychological Thriller, and Drama

Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

Night Stalker is a documentary series about how the American serial killer Richard Ramirez was hunted down and brought to justice. Even though the series is about a serial killer, the main focus is on the detectives Gil Carrillo and Frank Salerno who were in charge of the case as well as survivors and family members of the victims. Ramirez was not glamorized, which many documentaries about serial killers seem to do. In fact not much about Ramirez’s past or the trial is covered in the series, and I liked that because the victims were given a voice instead.

Genre: True Crime

Murder Among the Mormons

Murder Among the Mormons is a documentary series about Mark Hofmann who created forgeries of early Mormon documents as well as the three bombings that killed two members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). One thing I like about this documentary is that it not bashing Mormons and LDS church, but instead you learn about how the bombings happened and how Hofmann was able to pass off his forgeries as real historical Mormon documents. The documentary also interviews rare document dealers and collectors who were connected to Hofmann, his wife, and members of law enforcement.

Genre: True Crime

The Circle USA Season 2

The Circle is a reality series where players live in an isolated apartment and their only communication with the other players is through the social media platform The Circle. I loved the first season of The Circle because the series has an interesting concept and it was intriguing seeing if the catfish would be found out. The second season of The Circle did not disappoint, and it was entertaining and filled with drama.

Genre: Reality TV

Nailed It! Double Trouble!

Nailed It! is a reality series where home bakers with a bad track record try to recreate edible masterpieces and win $10,000. I always love binge-watching Nailed It! when a new season is released, and this time around with the Double Trouble season, bakers compete in pairs. However, having 2 bakers does not mean the desserts will be any better haha. Nailed It! is a light-hearted and fun series to watch.

Genre: Reality TV

    1. Yep! I have Danish classes Monday-Wednesday & Monday & Tuesday are at the school while Wednesday is online so I have to get a covid test every Sunday…people who work/go to school every weekday have to get at least 2 covid tests a week…

      YES! The ending was crazy & I hope you found a new show to watch!

  1. Being tested weekly sucks but at least there isn’t lockdown and you can safely enjoy the outdoors! My husband and I recently just finished our run with COVID and now I’m both paranoid and annoyed that TX has the required mask mandate lifted when a good portion of Texans have voiced they won’t be getting the vaccine! It’s crazy and dealing with COVID sucks!

    I’ve been binge watching Schitt’s Creek. I’m almost done so I sort of want to start another show so I don’t finish it too quickly. Am I the only one who does this lol. Nailed It is more of background noise for me but it amazes me how some people reallyyyyy don’t know how food/baking works! Like, you guys never made box cake before even?? lol

    1. Also it’s good I only have classes Monday-Wednesday so I only need to get 1 covid test done a week whereas people who work/go to school every weekday need to do at least 2 tests…
      I’m sorry to hear about you & your husband but that’s good you’re both better now.
      I think lifting the mask mandate is ridiculous especially since there are so many people who haven’t/will not get the vaccine. Even though the lockdown has ended here, we still have to wear masks indoors & I think it should stay that way until more people get the vaccine.
      I haven’t seen any epsiodes of Schitt’s Creek, but I should! I’m the same way haha. When I really like a show, I want to watch it for as long as possible so I’ll watch other shows in between lol
      YES! haha

  2. You really seem to like murder mysteries! I’m not sure if you watch anime, but if you are looking for a psychological thriller, I highly recommend Death Note. I believe it’s on Netflix.

    As for TV series, I stopped watching TV a few years ago. Now I only watch YouTube (Not the premium one but the free one lol) If I watch TV now it’s usually reruns or some cable tv show I’m not paying attention to or whatever is playing as background noise. Consequently, I stopped watching anime as well…. I sound like the most boring person ever 😂

    1. I do haha & I’ve seen Death Note MANY years ago when I was really into manga/anime but I should rewatch it!
      I watch a lot of YouTube too!
      I don’t really watch TV either & it’s mainly on for background noise haha


    1. Even though Night Stalker is rather dark, I liked that the focus was on the detectives & victims & I hope you’ll like the documentary as well


    1. I really enjoyed watching The Irregulars & The Circle is a great if you like reality shows”
      I haven’t seen Gilmore Girls so maybe I should watch it for the first time too haha


  3. I really want to watch Who killed Sara? it seems super interesting. I tried to watch The Circle but I found it too…mind-numbing 😂 I usually don’t like reality TVs, I know my boyfriend really enjoys it

    1. Who Killed Sara? is really interesting & there’s a twist at the end of season 1 so it seems like season 2 goes more into that
      Haha reality tv isn’t for everyone but I enjoy it because you don’t have to think but my bf HATES it


  4. My coworker really loved Behind her Eyes, but I haven’t watched it yet. I’d forgotten about it until reading your recap! I hadn’t heard of the Irregulars, but that sounds like something I’d enjoy. I’m going to check it out 🙂

  5. Wow, such an amazing list. I would really love to watch “The Irregulars” trailer looks incredible.

    Out of the list, I have seen Behind Her Eyes and I can tell you, it’s not a ending I was expecting at all. I’m still in shock out the series took a turn and what a pity for Adam.

    Thank you for this!

    1. You’re welcome! I definitely recommend Night Stalker because it focuses on the detectives & victims instead of Ramirez. Also Who Killed Sara? is an interesting series!


  6. I love how varied this list is! I watched Murder Among The Mormons earlier this year and found it so interesting. I’ve been meaning to watch behind her eyes for a little while now too. Thanks for the suggestions x

  7. I’m always looking for new series! I’m coming to the end of Snowpiercer so I’ll need something new to watch soon. The Irregulars sounds good! I liked Behind Her Eyes – thought the book was better and the whole concept is very weird!

    1. I have only watched the first 2 episodes of Snowpiercer a while back but I should finish it! It’s an interesting series & I like how it’s a different take on the movie
      I definitely recommend The Irregulars! I haven’t read Behind Her Eyes but I think I should one day!


  8. Ooh! This is a good list. I saw the trailer for Behind Her Eyes a lot, every time I went on Netflix but I haven’t gotten myself to watch it yet! My husband liked The Circle, haha but I don’t watch those kinds of shows but it looked super fun. Thanks for sharing, Karalee! xx
