This Is What the Bed Threads Team Are Watching On Netflix This March
We're literally days from the beginning of March and I'd just like to say—can 2020 slow down a bit? Granted, January did feel like its own decade as it lazily passed by, but entering our third month of the new year is a little bit unnerving. To make us feel better, the Bed Threads team have been swapping the plots of our new favourite shows in the office, so we thought we'd share the love with you as well. There's nothing better than finding a new series that you'd happily give up any social outing to sit at home and binge until you forget what time, day, or year it is. From brand new mystery series to original documentaries and returning seasons of our faves, refer to this list of March's best Netflix additions when you're in the mood for some quality screen time.

It sounds simple, but the power of social connection and activity can do wonders.
