If there was any question about how devoted I am to Netflix and binge watching shows or movies, here’s a post all about what I’ve watched in the past few weeks. I’ve accepted that sitting in bed with my hot water bottle and a cup of tea is my guilty pleasure, but sometimes it’s very much needed and there’s nothing wrong with that. So, if you need some recommendations for your next casual night in, either alone or with your significant other, here are a few movies, shows and stand up specials that I’ve enjoyed. Don’t worry, no spoilers, just a vague explanation of what you should expect going into each one.
For a documentary about one of the most recent social media scandals, I would recommend Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. It was crazier than I expected and totally worth the watch.
Everyone was raving about You so I thought it was about time I learned what all the hype was about. I’m definitely glad I watched it because it left me on edge of my seat for most of the night (yes, I binged it on a lazy Sunday).
I’m actually surprised that it’s taken me this long to watch Hot Fuzz considering how much I loved Shaun of the Dead and At World’s End. This is the classically funny British movie that you need in your life.
Yes, I’ve only just started watching Queer Eye and, yes, I’ve binged most of it up until this point. It’s such a funny, feel good show that also has its tear-jerking moments.
I didn’t know what to expect when starting Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, but I can now say that it’s one of the most satisfying experiences out there. Watching messy houses being transformed through cathartic organization is exactly what I need when I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed.
I love a good stand up special and Ellen Degeneres: Relatable is the perfect amount of wholesome humour to spend a cozy night in enjoying.
For a more eccentric show, Sebastian Maniscalco: Stay Hungry had me in stitches. He is one of my favourite comedians and just knows how to use his body in a way to make his jokes that much funnier.
