Is there anything better than starting a new series that just gets you? Like finding the one, you could spend all day snuggled up basking in the light of this beautiful new TV show that seems as though it was written just for you. It’s exactly what you’ve been waiting for, it’ll take you hurriedly through the work week, make the weekends blur into one and totally understand the kind of show you’ve been waiting for.
Finding a show you can hurriedly rush through is amazing. It’s like finding something that was written just for you! With that in mind, we’ve got a round up of the best Netflix shows out at the moment that are definitely worth a watch. So you can absolutely add this to the self-care tracking section of your Win At Life journal!
1. Dead To Me
Upon viewing this trailer, you’d be mistaken for thinking this was a darkly comedic story of two gal pals who meet after the death of their loved ones, however, this is so much more than this. Dark, sad, sweet, and funny, this show explores life after death and blame. Do we ever really know what someone is going through? It’s easy to think that the world is black and white, but this show really examines that. Who is right and who is wrong?
With some devastating moments, and some hilarious ones. You will love this because it shows real life and the power of female friendships. As sad as it is sweet and funny, it’s the perfect balance of drama and distraction. We rate this show a lot!
2. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile
Where have you been if you haven’t heard of this controversial film? Yes, Netflix bought the rights to Zac Efron’s performance as Ted Bundy – the serial killer responsible for the deaths of 30 women. Zac’s performance is stellar, he portrays a man that’s good looking and charismatic, therefore (at the time) undetectable. The darker side lays dormant, and this movie explores Ted Bundy’s relationships with people around him and his duplicitous nature.
If you’re a fan of true crime, you’ll lap this up. If you’re a fan of Zac Efron, you’ll love this even more!
3. Knock Down The House
Now it’s time for something a little different. Following Donald Trump’s rise to power, this documentary focuses on the primary campaigns of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Amy Vilela, Cori Bush, and Paula Jean Swearengin. Four progressive Democrats who ran for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections.
This documentary had its world premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, and it’s a really important watch if you’ve lost faith in politics or need a reminder that girl power is alive and well.
4. Wine Country
Wine Country follows a group of longtime friends who, after years of not seeing each other (due to personal and professional commitments) reunite in Napa for a 50th birthday. It’s a tale that we can all recognize, no matter how old you are. Life gets in the way of friendships, and sometimes, those big reunions are an opportunity to all the fraught tensions to boil to the surface.
This is a funny, yet serious show that explores friendships and the distance that life creates, but also explores the whole ‘girl trip’ theme pretty well, and with a SNL cast, you know this is going to be relatable AF!
5. Black Mirror
If you haven’t seen the new Black Mirror trailer (with Miley Cyrus), where have you been? Black Mirror is always better when it embraces standalone episodes in an anthology. The new series looks creepy and amazing and as always, it’s a reflection of society as a whole.
If you want your mind to be blown, and can’t wait to watch a critique on society as it is today presented in a clever way, you NEED to catch the new series of Black Mirror when it airs on the 5th June.
6. The Society
OK, this premise has been explored before. Imagine a world where all the ‘adults’ disappear, and only teenagers are left. It’s been explored before in a few other series, but this one is all about the drama and the nuance of a society of people just on the cusp of adulthood, being left without any rules or regulations.
With echos of The Purge, when these teenagers realize anything is possible they, predictably, go wild – and there are consequences. This is a must watch if you’re a fan of teen dramas that get the pulse racing.
