Happy Valley is coming to Netflix

1 Bob Ross: Beauty Is Everywhere (Season 1)

What is it? A cult classic that has been reborn in the internet age. Bob Ross was a painter and the jovial host of The Joy of Painting – a show where you literally watched a man creating landscapes on a big easel. Sound boring? The secret lies in the charm of Ross – possibly the loveliest human being ever to exist. Give it a chance and you’ll find yourself losing whole afternoons.

2 Happy Valley (Season 1)

What is it? The BBC’s hot streak when it comes to drama has gone from strength to strength this year, but the first season of Happy Valley was definitely one of the shows that helped kick-start the revolution.

When can I watch it? From Friday

5 Guardians of the Galaxy

What is it? The movie which proved Marvel had the golden touch when it came to making unlikely blockbusters. Guardians of the Galaxy introduced us to a virtually unknown band of space travelers, including a talking raccoon and a monosyllabic tree, and yet managed to evoke more joy, tears and sense of adventure than the entire Star Wars prequels. Not bad at all. When can I watch it? From June 20
