I have few friends and no bae, so I suppose I’ve become quite the Netflix connoisseur. Netflix and chill, anyone?
Based on the Netflix UK site.
The BBC does comedy. I thought I’d seen them all until I rewatched it, remembered episodes that I’d completely forgotten and had a great time. It’s also very fun watching Jake, aka Tyger Drew-Honey, get progressively hotter.
A documentary based around Orcas in captivity, largely based on Seaworld and their largest bull orca Tilikum who has been involved in the deaths of three humans. It’s heart-breaking, I cried a lot, the people in it cry quite a bit, tears everywhere. Probably enough to fill the Seaworld pool, ahhhhh shade. Watch it if you care about animals, or don’t care about animals (you will do).
American Horror Story
Kind of shit, kind of good. It’s not really very scary either. Oh, and there’s a new season about to come out so if mild ‘horror’ floats your goat try it.
Hungry for Change
Learn about the way the food industry controls us, it’ll open up the world of food retail and really make you think.
Watch a man with a girlfriend follow a woman around to make sure she takes both doses of the morning after pill following their one night stand. Think Juno meets a wheelybin. An absolute crock of shite but if like me you’re spending your Friday nights alone you may as well.
Tim Minchin: Ready for This
I love me some comedy and Tim Minchin is a genius. He plays the piano (very well) and sings funny songs while spreading a political message, there’s stand up in there too. My favourites from this show are; The Song for Phil Daoust, Bears Don’t Dig on Dancing and The Good Book.
If you missed it when it was on TV and like #relatable comedy you’ll love it. Essentially a documentary based on a high school in Yorkshire. Simple but iconic.
Hot Girls Wanted
A documentary about the amateur porn industry and the way it treats women. It focuses primarily on one house in which lives a man and the young women he manages. Eye opening and kind of upsetting.
New York’s upper east side is being spied on. It’s like Pretty Little Liars but less sinister, more scandals.
Based in the 60s, a white journalist starts to interview black women who have spent their lives being maids for rich white families. You start to watch all of these amazing black women coming forward and talking about their experiences. I love it so much. So much.
Gavin and Stacy
Do I really have to tell you what Gavin and Stacy is?
P.S Nessa is my favourite character.
