What I'm Watching...




Hands up if you’ve got an obsession with Netflix and no matter what you just can’t stop yourself? Yup, me too. Here’s what I’ve been goggling over lately.

Riverdale


Don’t tell me any spoilers. I haven’t finished this yet but it is so good! I’ve seen a lot of people praising this show on Twitter, and like seriously, it’s worth the hype. This show takes place in small town where everyone seems to know everything about each other. The show follows a bunch of teens around as they an investigation takes place in regards to a missing person. We quickly find out they’ve been murdered! Woah. Looks like it’s a murder mystery! The show takes place mainly in high school or the local diner, and it reminds me a little bit of Vampire Diaries or Pretty Little Liars. Why haven’t I finished watching it yet? Because I’m trying to eek it out so it lasts longer! As of right now, there’s only this season so I’m trying not to rush through. I will also point out that visually, this show is gorgeous to look at. You can tell that time has been taken during filming. Tries to remember some film terminology from Media A-Level to sound like I know what I’m talking about. You get my gist - if you need a good high school drama with a bit of mystery thrown into the mix, give this a go!


Orange is the new black


Oh my god don’t hate me but I’m only on season 2. I know, that itself is a crime but I am catching up, promise! I’ve seen snippets of the show in the past, and I remember all the hype surrounding the show when Ruby Rose joined the cast. But I’d never sat down and properly watched it before. Oh, how I wish I had dedicated time to it in the first place. As I said, I’m currently working my way through season 2 and love it! I feel like the episodes are a good length, they’re nice and chunky and you always feel like each episode is worth your time. 50mins to an hour is quite a commitment ya know. Can’t wait to catch up with the current season. Having to avoid soooooo many spoilers.


Jessica Jones


Kinda surprised myself with this one as I’m really not a fan of Marvel stuff. Just never really got into any of the films/shows. However, when a gal has an obsession with David Tennant, she gotta watch his shows. Now listen, I know that this show is by no means new and I am way behind on watching, but it’s okay ya know. I found it a bit slow to start with, and there was a lot of build-up before the real nitty gritty stuff started happening, but I am enjoying it. It’s quite dark, very dark in places, and David Tennant is a bad guy (from what I’ve watched so far). Maybe this is my way into enjoying more Marvel content. We shall see!


Girlboss


Chances are you’ve heard of this in some form. You might have read the book or seen the advertising surrounding the show. Personally, I read the book first, and I would recommend that. It’s like anything with a TV adaptation, you’re going to get a lot more detail from the book. I’m about halfway through the series now and am finding it super easy to watch. It reminds me a lot of New Girl, and the short episodes are snappy enough to keep you watching, but not too long that you realise you’ve got bored and have been scrolling through Twitter for the last half hour. Woops. I really like how they’re portraying Sophia and I’m hoping there might be another season in the future. Who knows!


Guilty Pleasures


Lastly, my guilty pleasures for the last few weeks have been Love Island and Big Brother. I know, the shame. Shout out to these show for taking all my precious Netflix time away from me. It is actually becoming a bit of an issue because it’s eating away at my Netflix time! First world problems alert. But seriously, I’d never watched Love Island before this year except for one episode last year where I got so confused, but now I am hooked! It’s taking priority over all other TV right now, and I am living for Camilla and Jonny. I hope by the time this post goes live they’re back to being in love again!



There you have it. That’s what I’m watching at the moment, what about you? If you’re watching anything good on Netflix at the moment let me know in the comments or over on Twitter because I’m always on the lookout for new shows to watch!
