The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, but don't lie to yourself, all you still want to do every evening is go home and watch Netflix, and thankfully, they have obliged by adding a shed load of great content in recent weeks.
Here's ten you shouldn't miss...
1. Mad Men - TV Series
Yep, Mad Men is on Netflix so you have no excuse not to binge on this iconic series which brought the world Don Draper. Mad Men follows a New York advertising agency through the shifting tides of '60s America. It takes in some hefty subject matter, including racial relations in America, women's role in both business and society, how we deal and interact with advertising and of course, amazing costumes and fantastic music.
2. The Discovery - Movie
Set in a world where the afterlife has been scientifically proven to exist, this Netflix original flick stars Rooney Mara, Jason Segal and Robert Redford, the latter being the one who made the discovery. The problem with the afterlife being real though is that millions of people have begun to take their own lives in order to start over. Yep, this could get very grim but also an interesting sci-fi tale that will undoubtedly reel you in out of curiosity alone.

3. Five Came Back - Documentary Series
A must-see for movie buffs, this series tells the story about how Hollywood impacted World War II and vice versa. It examines the actions of five filmmakers who left their careers to serve during the war - John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens - and then came back to inform the world of what was happening through their craft. Based on a book by Mark Harris, it is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Scott Rudin and Barry Diller, while it even has Meryl Streep on narrating duty. There's also contributions from some of the best directors of our generation including Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan.

4. Louis C.K - 2017 - Stand Up Special
Six-time Emmy Award winner Louis C.K. is one of the most honest and respected comedic voices of his generation, finding success in both television and film as well as the live stage. This is the first of two stand-up specials which Louis is releasing on Netflix and a must-see for his fans and anyone on the look-out for some quality stand-up.
5. The Get Down - TV Series
The first half of The Get Down, one of Netflix's most expensive shows to date, was released on the streaming service last August, however, due to what we can assume was filming constraints, the second half was only released last Friday. The show marks the first foray into TV by director Baz Luhrmann, the man that brought the world the likes of The Great Gatsby, Romeo and Juliet, and Moulin Rouge. Set in 1970s New York, The Get Down tells the story of how the genre of music we know as hip hop came to be, with The Bronx pretty much the ground zero of the entire movement. The show is a lively all singing, all dancing affair that will have you tapping your feet and wanting to get up off the couch and dance with them. It's about as Baz Luhrman as you can get though, so if he isn't your thing, side-step away.

6. Love - Season 2 - TV Series
Judd Apatow's Netflix series returned for its second season recently, and we have to say, we're liking it more and more. Created by Apatow, Lesley Arfin, and Paul Rust, it starts Rust alongside Gillian Jacobs in a comedy described as a "down-to-earth look at dating". They play two fairly irritating 'will they/won't they' friends called Gus and Mickey, that you'll eventually start to like and in between times will at least be kept entertained. It's definitely worth the watch, and already has a season three on the way so it's perfect Netflix binge material.
7. 13 Reasons Why - TV Series
This new Netflix original series just landed on the streaming service last weekend and so far it's picking up some great reviews, although bear in mind, it's probably more suited to the teenagers/young adults in your life. Based on the best-selling books by Jay Asher, and executive produced by Selena Gomez, '13 Reasons Why' follows teenager Clay Jensen (newcomer Dylan Minnette) as he returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker (newcomer Katherine Langford) - his classmate and crush - who tragically died by suicide two weeks earlier. Yep, it's pretty dark from the get-go but once you hit play on this it's near impossible to stop, as like Clay, you will need to find all the pieces of the puzzle.
8. Win it All - Movie
Jake Johnson stars as gambling addict Eddie Garrett in this new Netflix original movie released today, which the New Girl star also co-wrote the screenplay of. Eddie is tasked with watching a duffel bag for an acquaintance who is heading to prison, however, he can't resist taking a peek inside to discover the bag is filled with cash, and well, the gambler in him can't help but prevail. Looks entertaining enough and there's even a love story amidst all the gambling craic too.
9. Strike a Pose - Documentary
This documentary tells the surprising and moving story of Madonna's most famous troupe of dancers, who joined the iconic singer in 1990 on her most controversial Blond Ambition Tour. 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour, and talk about how they quickly became role models in the gay community, though it didn't always feel that way. The documentary serves as a 'where are they now' but also a tale about overcoming adversity and finding the courage to be who you are.
10. Party of Five - TV Series
If you fancy getting your nineties on for a while, you can feed your inner teenager and go on a nostalgic binge fest of Party of Five this weekend. This series made stars of Matthew Fox, Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell and Jennifer Love Hewitt back in the day, as we all became engrossed in the trials and tribulations of this parentless family. It even won a Golden Globe for best drama in 1996, although that was back in the days when it was a hell of a lot easier to impress with TV shows. Still though, those five Salinger siblings were as important to the nineties as troll dolls and floppy hats.
