NETFLIX RECOMMENDATIONS: stuff to watch

Recommended Posts

Thought with streaming taking over the world we should have a little streaming thread to recommend stuff to watch

 

this week I watched

 

Aaron Fernandez the NFL star who committed murder is well worth watching 

 

don’t Fck with Cats : is mental and interesting

I ditched or rather didn’t renew Netflix about a year and a half ago following a debit card cloning incident at some London bar. Since that time I hear some really good things about some of the films and shows that have come on. Will renew at some point in the summer I guess and start a new viewing feast!

 

Id be really interested to hear about any real good stuff that’s come on during the period I’ve not subscribed.

I don’t think it’s great value at the moment tbh, I have Netflix, Prime and Now TV and the one I’d happily drop would be Netflix.

The Witcher is great. Always Sunny's a reliable lazy binge. 

Always Sunny is 90% of the reason I still have Netflix

Season 14 came out today, I am curious if it will be a dumpster fire like season 13 was.

An observation that has been spoken before but I'll repeat here: that one has to buy three different streaming services per month just to be able to watch all of Game of Thrones, The Expanse and The Witcher is frankly taking the piss.

I used to pay £50 a month to sky plus £7.99 a month to Spotify, now I pay £8.99 (Netflix) £7.99 (amazon music included) £14.99 Now TV. Genuinely I feel like it’s better overall, apart from the music range which is a bit limited.

That's fair enough and if you add it up that way it does seem like better value for money than what has come before.

Good news is though they can now play themselves in the later series.

Ms Markel is a pretty limited actress (if Suits is anything to go by). I'm not sure she'd give a convincing portrayal of herself.

Watching the Witcher at the moment. Haven't got a clue what's going on but it's good fun. 

 

I know that it's not new but just finished the Ken Burns Vietnam documentary. Brilliant and to call it detailed would be an under statement!

YOU is good, 2 series on Netflix

I thought season 1 was OK but season 2 did me in (those constant voice overs, you've got the 'unreliable narrator' schtic by now and the constant reinforcements only weaken the show, amusing as they might be)

 

It's odd because it's not actually very good (average acting, somewhat leaden and clichéd plot) but it has some amusing scenes and clever lines that kinda keep it together. And it does have that 'wonder what happens next?' appeal to it that makes you watch, despite your better judgement. It defo works best watched as a black comedy, though season 1 did have something to say about social media etc.

 

Edit: just remembered something to watch season 2 for - Robin Lord Taylor, he who played Penguin in Gotham. He's honing his skills and is becoming a fine actor IMHO.

Bloodline, The Sinner, OITNB and When They See Us have all been enjoyable, along with most of what's already been mentioned. 

I like Grace and Frankie too, but that's probably far too girlie for most of you, as was Dirty John. Oh and the Madeleine McCann documentary was worth watching too
