At the start of the year, I created a post about TV shows you need to watch and I decided it was time to bring it back with a Netflix version, as what else are days off made for? I hope you enjoy my recommendations and my *strange* lego pictures to go with and I’d love to hear of any shows or films on Netflix you’d recommend watching, in the comments!
Sugar Rush is another new amazing Netflix original which is a TV series all about baking, where they’re given different themes and are up against time and three other couples to make it to the final bake in which they make an AMAZING cake. The time they save from previous rounds gets added to the final bake, so it’s important to save up as much time as possible for this. Next Flicks featured an awesome review on their site of the programme too.
The Kissing Booth:
The Kissing Booth is a Netflix original film that came out at the start of this year, and although I put it on as I needed something light to watch, I ended up falling completely in love with the film, and even possibly ended up crying at it?? It’s an adorable love story about two best friends, but it doesn’t go the way you’d expect in the slightest. But I can promise a happy ending, because who doesn’t love a happy ending right?
Update: Netflix has confirmed there will be a 2nd film yay!
Surely you’d know that a documentary would appear somewhere in here, especially of the crime variety. It’s a 4 part documentary, and every episode is just as gripping as the first, and they don’t cut out any of the grizzly parts either. The plot of the film is around a bank robbery that went seriously wrong, or did it? There are still so many unknown answers to this day, that will never be answered.
Girls Incarcerated Young and Locked up:
Another documentary series that had to make the list was young and locked up. I have watched a lot of the prison documentaries on Netflix, but they are usually about men. So when I saw there was one for teenage girls I knew I had to watch it, it’s 8 episodes which shares the stories of young girls who are locked up and what is like to be inside during those years. Well worth a watch!
If you enjoyed this programme, I’d recommend watching Jailbirds which is all about women in prison and what it is like to be female and locked up.
The Edge of Seventeen:
I was curious to watch this film as it has Hailee Steinfeld in, who is a badass singer and had those two catchy songs a few years ago. As an actress she is pretty amazing too, playing a teen whose best friend starts dating her brother and the whole story is full of twists and turns. I’d totally recommend it if you’re looking for something a little different to watch.
I also noticed some classic rom-com films have reared their heads on Netflix too, including 13 going on 30 and Bring it on all or nothing. Two of my all time faves, yay.
