Earlier this month I posted about 8 tremendous shows on Netflix I’ve been watching. Since getting my Netflix subscription I’ve been watching quite a few things. Some things have been amazing, others not so much. Regardless my watch list is jam-packed full of watchable content that is sure to keep me going for the next few months. However, I am always open to suggestions. So if you do have any suggestions, I’d love for you to let me know of any great shows or movies.
The Good Place
The first of the three awesome things to watch on Netflix is for sure The Good Place. The Good Place is an American fantasy-comedy television series which stars Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop. She wakes up in the afterlife in a heaven like place called The Good Place as a reward for her good behaviour in life. However, it soon becomes apparent that Eleanor has been mistakenly placed here as she wasn’t the best-behaved person on Earth. In the series, you see Eleanor attempt to become a better person as she mixes and mingles with the other inhabitants. The show cleverly touches on ethics. Plus at the end of the first series provides a clever plot twist that will have you craving more.
The show on average runs around 22 minutes an episode and there are 26 episodes running over two series. This means it is good for both casual watching and binging. But honestly? You’ll probably end up wanting to binge this as it is addictive. Also just a heads up, series three is coming late September so you for sure could catch up in time for the new episodes.
The second of the three awesome things to watch on Netflix is certainly The Rain. This is a Danish post-apocalyptic series consisting of 8 episodes running at around 40 minutes a pop. Not a fan of subtitles? Fear not. This is dubbed. At first, I found this strange but I soon got used to it. Anyway, the series follows siblings Simone and Rasmus who take shelter in a bunker when rainfall wipes out almost everyone in Scandinavia. Six years later they come out of their bunker in the search of their father who left them. He also happens to be a scientist who left in search of a cure for the virus in the rain.
In the series, we see the siblings team up with other young survivors as they move across Denmark and Sweden. They are in search of a safe place, the cure, the pair’s father and ultimately answers. Granted the series is full of plot holes and there is a questionable slight incest vibes between the brother and sister. Nevertheless, this had me and Peter wanting to watch more and more to find out what went on. This is a good little series to watch a couple of episodes each night when there is simply nothing on tele.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
The third and final of the three awesome things to watch on Netflix is To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. This isn’t a series, it is a film. A Netflix original to be exact based on the book written by Jenny Han of the same title. The film is an American teen romance that sees Lara Jean’s secret love letters exposed which wreak havoc on her love life. There are no real surprises in this film but it is a charming movie which has an impressive cast. The chemistry between Lara Jean and a certain male (no spoilers!) is excellent with one certain hot tub scene being rather steamy. Especially for a teen rom-com. I don’t really want to give much away about the flick. However, I will say there is some stunning cinematography and in places, the film is very relatable. Just give it a watch, trust me!
