The best shows on Netflix Canada for your next date night

We're in the thick of winter, which means you must be in the mood to Netflix & Chill. If you're not, you've got some serious kahunas for braving the outdoors. Let's say you choose to stay in, now, the big question is, what should you watch?

Here are the shows and movies you need to watch, categorized in some real AF categories. We all know what you watch on a first date is much different than what you watch in a long term relationship, or even when you're alone on a Saturday night. Light up a Coal and Canary candle and get watching!

First dates/Casual Dating:

If you find yourself in a first date/hangout Netflix & Chill situation, there are a few things to consider. Do you want to cuddle? Laugh? Be scared? TV show or movie?

The "scary but not too scary + cuddle me" options:

  • You

  • Haunting of Hill House

  • Literally any episode of Black Mirror

The "let's watch an episode and see if we have the same type of humour" options:

  • The Office * Important to watch within the first couple of dates. If they do not like The Office, ABORT. ABORT THE SITUATION IMMEDIATELY.

  • Brooklyn Nine Nine

  • Friends

New relationships:

So you've been dating a few months. You've retired date night outs and moved on to binge watching Netflix together. Huge step. Wow, modern romance.
