Netflix


I like to consider myself similiar to a wine connoisseur, except it's not wine at all, it's Netflix.  I have spent many hours, days, weeks, months, years watching Netflix series and like to think of myself as someone who knows their tv. Like I mean, if we were at a pub quiz its guaranteed the only round I actually stand a chance at, actual life things you should know like World War facts, or Capital cities...notttttttt so much.  Naturally I then needed to talk all about what I am loving lately.  If you know me in real life you'll know this is 50% of my daily chat - the other 50%? Food that goes well when watching said tv shows.  I have no life, I am aware.

 I mean I have my obvious shows that everyone has probably already seen by now, if not - what are you even doing with your life? - Breaking Bad, Dexter, Sons of Anarchy, Power..... this blog post could literally go on for years.

Jessica Jones - one of the newer Marvel tv shows features Jessica Jones aka (Jesse Pinkmans junkie girlfriend) a private investigator and with super human powers who frankly is bad ass b*tch.   I never in a million years thought I'd be into comic book movies and shows and used to sigh at the thought of being dragged to another marvel movie with Simon (except for Thor, I mean who in their right mind wouldn't enjoy Thor?) but as I slowly get around to catching up on some of the greats I find myself becoming completely hooked!  Please feel free to list any I must watch below.

Altered Carbon - I'm really going all out with my tv taste lately and sci-fi eske things really were not my jam until I became seriously over-obsessed with Stranger things - can you really call that sci-fi? who knows.  I adored Joel Kinnaman in The Killing, which fun fact was the first ever tv series I watched back in my uni days when I discovered Netflix, oh the joy!  So I tend to gravitate towards anything featuring him. It is set more than 300 years from now where society and way of life has been drastically changed by technology, death is no longer a permanent thing with human bodies or "sleeves" being interchangable. I like how it's obviously set in the future although really isn't too unrealistic in ways in regards to the AI & each person having a main chipset implanted.  I love the futuristic and techy side this show brings and such an interesting concept that might not be so far fetched after all. 

Brooklyn 99 - This is one of those shows you can dip in and out of and you don't really have to watch in any particular order.  It really reminds me of Scrubs so if that was your thing back in the day then you are really going to enjoy this.  It has such a stupid sense of humour which I absolutely love, it's so light hearted and silly it just makes me feel joy watching it.  It is based on a group of NYPD detectives in the 99 Precinct with the main character being Jake Peralta who reminds me exactly of JD.  The immaturity and childishness of Jakes character will instantly make you love him.  It's so light hearted and with the short episodes it's one you can watch easily.

Peaky Blinders - I mean I actually feel years behind with this one.  My own Mother and Father were on stealing my Netflix password years before I even really knew what this series was about.  Anyone else have a family of theives when it comes to their Netflix account?  There is theme beginning here with shows I never in a million years thought i'd even entertain the idea of, yet then went on to become so obsessed with I'm googling fan tee's to add to my ridiculous collection.  Tommy Shelby, need we even say any more?  I'm horrendous at trying to describe what this is even about so here is a quick blurb;
Britain is a mixture of despair and hedonism in 1919 in the aftermath of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly minted revolutions and criminal gangs are fighting for survival in a nation rocked by economic upheaval. One of the most powerful gangs of the time is the Peaky Blinders, run by returning war hero Thomas Shelby and his family

And there you have it, my top tv series of the moment... what have you been watching lately? I'm always on the look out for something new to immerse myself into next so leave your faves in the comments below.
