1. House of Cards
The first ever web-first series on Netflix. That and the fact the writing is brilliant and Kevin Spacey as a skin-crawlingly good villainous Frank Underwood (ie the US Prez) make it an unmissable series. D'uh.
2. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
New kid on the block, Kimmy Schmidt, has spent a majority of her life living in an apocalypse bunker-cult, only to be set free and let loose in New York City. Written by Tina Fey and rejected by the NBC in the US because it was too risky in its material (particularly around its lax relationship to racial sterotypes), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a must-watch for Tina Fey and 30 Rock fans.
It's totally okay if you haven't re-watched Zoolander since the surprise appearance of Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) at Paris Fashion Week to announce the sequel was underway. What's totally not okay though is taking the opportunity now to sit down and brush up on your Zoolander lingo. Anyone for an orange mocha frappuccino?
Cleaver Greene (Richard Roxburgh) is not your average barrister (or maybe, scarily, he is). He's a rogue with a strong penchant bars and bedrooms. He also has an uncanny knack to wound the nearest and dearest to him while finding himself in all manner of crazy escapades (mostly a consequence of his own actions). Don't let that stop you though. It makes for great Aussie writing (Roxburgh also wrote the series) and a strong anti-hero that you can't help but feel something for.
5. Monsters, Inc.
"Kitttttttyyyyyy!" The adorable words uttered by a small human girl, Boo, who was accidentally let into the world of monsters by BFFs and misfit monsters Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman). The premise of the film makes for a movie that is at times simultaneously hilarious, gorgeous and tear-jerking. A definite team fave.
NB: Make sure your current internet plan is going to support your new Netflix habit, otherwise you could end up with some pretty nasty Bill Shock at the end of the month.
