I know this is super random, BUT– people are always asking for Netflix recommendations so I thought I’d compile a list of shows I’ve watched [and loved] recently.
This show was literally unbelievable…punny, I know. But seriously, it’s based on the true story of a teenager named Marie who was accused of lying about her own rape. It was incredibly well written and just all around well done. It’s definitely a heavy show but so worth the watch if your heart can handle the subject matter.
Okay, this ones a no brainer and you’ve probably already binged the entire thing– and if not I guarantee you’ve seen at least one meme about it. YOU is an off the wall love story that centers around a man named Joe. Just what are the lengths that Joe will go to for love? You’ll just have to watch and see.
#3 Lost in Space
When David first told me he wanted to watch this I thought, “no way!” But, for his sake, I gave it a chance and one episode in I was hooked. We binged the entire thing while we were in the hospital having Mikaela and two years later, season two is FINALLY here. Based on a show from the 60s with the same name, it’s about a family, The Robinson’s, who are a part of the first colony to live in space. Just trust me, so good, y’all.
Maybe it’s just the former assistant All-Starz coach in me, but I loved this docuseries. It follows the top college competitive cheer squad in the country from Navarro college, on their journey to defend their national title. I looooove watching cheer routines, one of my youtube guilty pleasures, so this show was right up my ally.
#5 The Umbrella Academy
I’ll have to admit, this was another one of David’s suggestions that I straight rolled my eyes at but I will admit when I’m wrong and I WAS WRONG. This show, based on a comic book series, follows the 7 adopted children of Sir Reginald Hargreeves on a mission to save the world. Sounds cheesy but it’s good. If for no other reason, watch it for the character Klaus…he’s hysterical.
