NETFLIX PICKS

Netflix tends to go through good and bad times when it comes to its offerings, however recently, it’s had some really good shows to watch and I’ve been watching it like a hawk! I love Netflix, particularly in the colder months when I want to binge-watch a show in the evenings especially as it automatically moves onto the next episode – a lazy girls best friend!

Switched at Birth
Just as the title suggests, it’s about two teenage girls who were switched at birth and meet each other’s families to get to know their biological parents. As you can imagine, both children have had very different upbringings and the parents have to try and parent both girls without overstepping the mark. It also has typical teenage issues, such as relationships, jobs and just growing up and finding themselves. There are about five seasons and I watched three of them on my latest holiday to Madeira, as I couldn’t get enough of it. It’s not one of those shows that you can have on in the background and dip in and out of as it involves quite a few deaf characters who use sign language and therefore has subtitles, but at the same time it doesn’t need lots of deep concentration. If you like 90210, you’ll like this as it’s on the same American TV show realm.

Amanda Knox
I ended up watching this after pretty much every one on my course raved it about. It’s somewhat a whodunit film about an alleged premeditated murder of a young girl who shared a house with two other people in Paris. There are so many loopholes and stories that don’t wholly add up. It’s really interesting from a journalistic point of view, seeing the media and how the events were reported etc.

The Goodwife
After a couple of months of watching this as and when, I finally watched the last episode. Long story short, it’s about a mother who returns to work as a lawyer after taking out 11 years to look after her two children. One of my favourite things about this show is that pretty much every episode has a different court case and has a little insight into the investigation and resolution of the case and there are some ongoing issues too!

Narcos
I feel like everyone and their nans are watching Narcos and with good reason too! It’s about Pablo Escobar, the notorious Columbian drug lord who has the Drug Enforcement Agency hunting him down. It’s fascinating seeing what goes on in drug cartels and the risk and danger of all those involved.

What shows do you love at the moment?!
