Looking for a great show to watch? Look no further! Here are the top 10 clean TV shows on Netflix that you can watch anytime.
I am jumping out of my norm here today.
Instead of crafting, sewing, decorating or making with my kids, I’m talking about one of the things I like to do when I am not doing all of the above.

Whenever I get together with friends or family, the topic “what are you watching right now” seems to come up often. I love getting recommended TV series to dive into, and it seems others are hungry for the same information – so I figured why not write about it.
First of all, I love when a movie has a series because I know what I am going to watch for quite some time.
Actually, I’ll be honest, I don’t watch a lot of TV. Between keeping up a blog and a house and 4 kids – who has time for TV!!
Well actually – I make the time because I really enjoy a good show.
My general rule is, I can only watch a show if I am running on my treadmill, or killing time between kid drop offs and pick ups.
Knowing that I have a TV series going on that I am dying to see is a sure fire way to get me running!
And yes, I run for about 1 hour on my treadmill and it speeds by with a good show.
Second of all, I am pretty picky about what I watch. I really don’t like shows that leave me feeling yuck after I watch it.
I am very selective about filling my brain with clean, feel-good, and for the most part – family friendly shows. Most of the shows I am about to recommend, I wouldn’t mind one bit if my kids watched with me.
However, some are just more mature in nature and I don’t think my young kids need to be exposed to it quite yet. I’ll mention that in my reviews below.
But these 10 TV shows/series I feel are clean enough for me to enjoy and I feel good enough about recommending them.
Let me be a little more specific.
I don’t like violence or movies saturated with . . . ahem . . . the 3 letter word that has to do with the birds and the bees . . . if you know what I am saying.
Some of them may suggest such material, but do not have scenes that would make me blush or cringe if my kids walked in. I also don’t like shows that are full of cussing.
Basically, I just like shows that leave me feeling uplifted, inspired and happy – and these 10 shows do that for me. Most of them are online streaming with Netflix, or with your amazon prime streaming.
I am going to send you to the amazon links (affiliate links) of each show so you can read reviews and other information (or purchase if you don’t have Netflix). Or you can simply log on to your Netflix account and search the title.
I would love to hear if some of these are your favorites as well, or please – suggest other titles that are clean must see’s – so we can all enjoy.
1. The Paradise
I’ve got “The Paradise” at the tippy top of my list for a very good reason. If I could only watch one show for the rest of my life – this would be it. It is the most breathtaking little love story found in England’s first department store set in the 1870’s. I just love all the fashion and architectural detail and the actors – UNBELIEVABLE! I’ve watched all they have available on Netflix, twice – and I never watch a show twice. Not one I would watch with the kids because it is so love-y dove-y but this is a wonderful put-the-kids-to-bed-and-watch kind of show.
In my next life I am going to be a cowgirl/horse whisperer. Until then, I’m taking lessons from Heartland. Super clean show with great life lessons. I watch this with my kids all the time and it got me through my last pregnancy. Love all the family values it teaches! This is a must see.
Downton Abbey – have you heard of it? (hehe) Of course you have, and I am a total shameless sucker for this show. If not for the incredible acting and British accents – then for the decor and thousands of tables-capes. Bit mature for kids – but the hubs even approves.
Medieval attire, adventure, magical powers, a little romance, loyalty, and good vs evil – this show is nail biting addicting! I started it and the hubs couldn’t resist. He insisted I only watch it with him and I had to pick a different show for my treadmill. A bit scary for my little ones – but I imagine pre-teens would be a good fit for this show. Being Arther and all, there is a bit of sword fighting and such, but never bloody gross. There is evil/sorcery in it, but not the kind that made me want to sleep with one eye open. Totally wanted this show to last forever!
This is all your Disney/Storybook Characters come to life in one big story that will have you on the edge of your seat. I LOOOOVE all the twists and turns in this show and unexpected moves. This is another good vs. evil kind of show, and will have you dying to know what happens next. Once again, perhaps a bit scary for kids – they rip hearts out and such – but in a totally weird pretend kind of way. I was more disturbed watching Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” animated film than this show.
Darling show from my BBC friends! There are a lot of mama’s giving birth – and let me tell you, each childbirth looks so real – I could swear they hire people to actually have babies on film. Who know’s! This show was hard to watch running on the treadmill. I was sobbing over almost every episode, it made it very hard to breathe! This 1950’s London based show is so very charming! However, the husband didn’t want anything to do with it 😉 You’ll be smiling and crying through every episode! (Just a side note – my 8 year old walked in during one moment and swore she was never going to have kids. Something you might consider before letting your kids watch it).
I just discovered this one, and I’m not sure I can wait for Netflix to get the rest of the seasons up and going. In my opinion this is a well done charming show done by none other than – Hallmark. I think of it as a mix up of Dr. Quinn Medicine woman and Christy (if you’ve heard of that). A rich inspired woman treks over to the wild west and finds love and fulfillment in a town of poverty. I would love to enjoy this with my girls.
This was a quick little series from BBC, and I believe there are several versions of this 19th century novel – but I thought it was an adorable love story. I am pretty sure I was supposed to be born in this era. But then again – not sure I could trade my yoga pants for corsets. I think I will also add here, if you are a BBC/Jane Austen kind of fan – be sure to check out this mini series version of EMMA. Way cute – but probably a bit boring for kids.
9. Cedar Cove
Another fantastic Hallmark series with gorgeous filming in a picturesque town in Washington. Clean, inspiring, just enough romance, and I’m pretty sure I want to have the grace and beauty of Andie McDowell when I am her age. I would feel okay with my kids watching this – but they probably wouldn’t want to.
10. Land Girls
Land Girls is all about British gals during world war II, and remarkably done by BBC. It is interesting to imagine the struggles and changes the women faced during that time. These realities are most likely more than I would want to expose my kids to, but provided wonderful inspiration for me.
I hope my list has been helpful to you, and I hope you give some of them a try! I’m currently looking for another great, clean, and feel-good show so if you know of any – do share!
