As always, Netflix provides many of us with hours of entertainment and to me, they really are at the top of the competition when it comes to streaming television series and films. There’s been plenty of shows to keep me going through the New Year until that warmer weather (that I’m kind of still waiting for) comes along.
Santa Clarita Diet
AMG, this is just so good. Starring Drew Barrymore (what a babe) as Sheila and Timothy Olyphant (also a babe) as Joel, the happy couple’s seemingly perfect family life is turned upside down when Sheila ends up becoming…undead.
It’s a very weirdly wonderful television series and I’m pretty much hooked on it at the moment. I’m currently in Season 2 and I’m happy to know that a Season 3 is in the mix, so GET IN.
So I was on this like nobody’s business when Season 2 came onto the platform. It’s such a good show but I feel as though it’s become a little far fetched. Also there’s some moments where I’m cringing because it’s a little OTT. However if you want an evening where you just want to slob out in front of the TV, then this the show you want on.
Zumbo’s Just Desserts
I’ve recently become obsessed with baking shows and there’s two that I wanted to mention that I’ve sailed through recently on my commutes to work. Up first is Zumbo’s Just Desserts. Zumbo is effectively the Austrailian version of Heston Blumenthal and there’s 12 contestants who take part to be in with the chance of winning $100,000 and one of their cakes in Zumbo’s shop window.
I now want to bake some cakes desperately so perhaps a load of baking utensils will be a present to myself at the end of Summer.
Another baking show is Nailed it which sees very amateur bakers try to recreate some incredible looking cakes. The concept came from those cakes you see that have been created to look like something amazing but actually turn out to be hilariously bad.
This is what I imagine my baking experience will be like but I’m doing it either way. Y’all can’t stop me and my dreams of becoming a pro baker.
RuPaul’s Drag Race – Season 10
There was uproar recently when RuPaul’s Drag Race seemed to be threatened with Netflix wanting to remove Seasons 1-9. RuPaul’s has become an ever increasing popular television series and is definitely needed to bring more insight and education into the world of drag because not everyone understands it or gets it.
There’s also a few shows that I need to continue watching or finish. A few examples would be Jessica Jones (Season 2), The Good Place and I really need to finish Dexter because I stopped at around Season 5 or 6 more than a few years ago and haven’t picked it up since.
What Netflix shows/films have you been watching recently? Let me know in the comments below and tell me which ones I should put on my to watch list.
