Exam time is upon us (already), and we’re sure that you’re procrastinating finishing those assignments or studying that last lecture. So we’ve come up with a list of the best movies or shows to watch on Netflix right now. Grab the popcorn!
Love Is Blind
So bad, it’s good. The series follows a bunch of single girls and guys who for ten days’ date each other in different ‘pods’ without ever seeing one another. To see each other, the couples must get engaged and plan a wedding in a few weeks, what could go wrong?
Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness
A true-crime documentary series about the life of Joseph Maldonado Passage who is obsessed with Big cats: the series focuses on the close-knit society of prominent cat conservationists and collectors and the major beef that ensues between them. (Most entertainingly between Carole and Joseph).
The Good Place
Set in a non-dimensional afterlife, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) finds herself in ‘The Good Place’ despite knowing she isn’t a good person by any measure. In a bid not be sent to the Bad Place, she enlists the help of her Soulmate, Philosophy scholar Chidi (William Jackson Harper) to help her ‘become good’. Packed full of inventive one-liners and a sprinkle of existential crisis what better a show to watch during the quarantine.
One of the funniest cartoons on Netflix. You might be thinking; why would you watch a series about a group of 7th graders going through puberty? Believe me I asked myself the same question. The plots just get more wack by the minute, and the voice cast gets you hooked.
Guaranteed to stir up some feelings of nostalgia, binge it all in a day or two and don’t forget your tissues for when you know who dies because did any of us genuinely recover?
The End of the F***ing World
The show follows James (Alex Lawther), a 17-year-old self-diagnosed sociopath and his target Alyssa (Jessica Barden), the new girl at school who has a talent for annoying people. He believes ‘she could be interesting to kill’ and so pretends to fall in love with her. They run away together, the crimes they commit bringing them closer together as they are chased down.
Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) is a socially awkward teenager with a sex therapist for a mother. When his home life is quickly exposed at school, Otis realises he can use his knowledge to start a lucrative business and teams up with the school’s resident Bad girl Maeve (Emma Mackey) to set up an underground sex therapy clinic for students.
Orange is the New Black
Ten years after transporting drug money to her ex-girlfriend, 30-year-old Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is sentenced to 15 months at a minimum-security Women’s prison. The show documents the reality of how life-changing prison can be with no shortage of dramas and exciting characters to keep you on edge.
There’s no time like now to get stuck in another era. The show delves into the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), from her marriage to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947 to the present day. The perfect show to binge whether you’re a drama fan or history buff.
