5.) Lovesick


Formerly known as Scrotal Recall, Lovesick is a British comedy series that Netflix picked up in 2016. Lovesick follows the lives of English young adults who share of house in Glasgow, Scotland. The main character, Dylan, finds out that he has contracted chlamydia, and he has to inform every one of his past lovers of his diagnosis. Each episode centers on a different girl from Dylan’s past and takes you down memory lane, then ties it to his present-day love life. Ultimately, every character is in search of their true love, and viewers get to go on the bumpy, yet entertaining ride with them. The serious themes are juxtaposed by the story’s often lighthearted and fun vibe, and each episode is full of British-style comedy that is both cheeky and hilariously blunt.


Lovesick stars British actors Johnny Flynn, Antonia Thomas of Misfits, Daniel Ings and Joshua Macguire, and was originally created by Tom Edge, also a writer for the popular Netflix drama The Crown. After the first season, Netflix took over, changed the name and released a second season in 2016. The most recent eight-episode season was released on Jan. 1, 2018, following the show’s success. If you fall in love with these lovable characters, you’re in luck: There are rumors that the show will be picked up for a fourth season.
