I am a self-proclaimed Netflix Binge Watching Queen. Since my family and I were displaced as a result of the flood in August, I’ve been great at not spending money on things. And in exchange, I’ve spent a lot of time indoors get lost in the Binge Watch World of NetFlix, Hulu, and Amazon Originals. And since I’ve happened upon shows that I absolutely loved, I am inclined to share them.
This one is listed first because I’ve been completely engulfed in this show since I’ve decided to finally see what the fuss was about according to Twitter. This show honestly lives up to it’s name. The main character is Fiona, the oldest of the Gallagher clan who is solely responsible for her 5 siblings because their parents are the scum of the earth. I was able to sympathize with her at first, then I lost all sympathy by maybe the 2nd or 3rd season. You made feel differently, but it’s definitely a hilarious, yet tear jerking show that I’ve come to love.
This show is a Netflix Original and was just released a few months ago. I think I’ve watched the entire season about five times already and hoping I don’t realize that it’ll be quite some time before the new season starts. I’m a Sci-Fi, paranormal geek to the fullest so after I read the description, I knew I was going to absolutely love it. And I guess I did since I’ve watching it as much as I have. If you love aliens, theories about other worlds and dimensions, and little kids that discover it all while trying to save their best friend, you definitely need to see this.
So if we’re remaining on the paranormal geeky trip, this show is perfect for allat. I literally watched this show in one day. (I’ve been watching waaaaay too much tv, and my weight confirms it.) The season is really dragged out and the finale sucked in a major way. I won’t ruin it for you, but I will say that I believe that parts of the show were drawn out just to have a certain amount of shows in a season. But, it was a good show nonetheless.
This one had me. I have never in my life felt so emotional after watching a documentary on Netflix. It could have been a result of all the recent occurrences, especially one that his so close to home here in Louisiana. Centered around the idea of prison pipelines designed specifically for black and brown people, activists and prominent civil rights leaders and analysts weigh in on this topic. Although absolutely angering and heart-wrenching, it’s definitely worth the watch when you’re emotionally prepared to handle all of the knowledge that is bundled up in 1 hour and 30 minutes.
On a lighter note, Luke Cage is a dope adaptation of a Marvel Comic that still delivers so much black and brown goodness and pride, that it’s worth a second watch. In which I totally did that with no shame. All of these modern movies that are based on Marvel comics really makes me a little bit sad that I wasn’t into comics when I was younger. So if you’re like me, Marvel & Netflix got us covered.
Leave them below so I can have an excuse to miss the gym. Not really.
