A lot of us probably watched this years ago, but we highly recommend watching it again from the very beginning!

The Crown

The Crown gives viewers an inside look into life behind Buckingham Palace doors.

Claire Foy plays Queen Elizabeth II exceptionally in the first and second season, before Olivia Colman took over the role in season three.

The series follows the Queen’s life from her Coronation onwards, and focuses on the difficulties she faced both in her professional and personal life.

How I Met Your Mother

With an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, this British thriller will have you on the edge of your seat.


The Office

A show about a paper company does not sound like the premises for a comedy series. However, The Office proves us wrong!

With an amazing cast, including Steve Carell as Michael Scott, this show has entertained viewers for years on end.


Who can forget the fake fire drill scene? We can’t!
