There’s no doubt that this time of year is a very busy period. We’re rushing around to get the shopping, the wrapping and the cooking done in between spending time with family and friends at various events.
But we reckon everyone will agree that in the short few days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve there’s a bit of a lull.
Don’t get us wrong, we love that all we’re busy doing is snacking on the leftovers from our Christmas feast and using/wearing/playing with our Christmas gifts and it’s certainly a welcomed relaxing few days.
But what is there to do in-between the two big holidays?

If you love shows like Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Queer Eye then you’ll love RuPaul’s Drag Race!
Now this one is for the reality TV lovers who are also here for the drama and suspense of a scripted and directed show. But just a warning because this show is incredibly addictive.
UnReal is a show that uncovers what goes on behind the scenes of reality dating shows like The Bachelor.
Set behind the scenes of their own dating show, ‘Everlasting’, it appears that there might be more drama going on off camera rather than in front of it as the producers manipulate the relationships among the contestants to get what the footage that they want.
Trust us, you won’t look at any reality TV show the same way after watching this incredible series!
6) The Royals
If you’re obsessed with shows like Dynasty, that see wealthy families feuding over money, power and title then The Royals is just for you!
In this royal family, power is EVERYTHING and there are no limits as to just how far they’ll go to keep it.
Queen Helena and King Simon try to present themselves as poised and full of class and grace, but in reality their lives are tainted by politics, family issues and scandal caused by their rebellious daughter, Princess Eleanor.
With four seasons and tons of episodes out for you to stream, this show will certainly keep you entertained.
