I watch something on Netflix almost every day but I’ve gotten out of the habit of sharing what I’ve been streaming. Writing movie reviews was my first real job and I think I need to go back to my roots. I feel so at peace when I’m writing about what I’ve watched on Netflix. So for my readers and I both, I’m going to try to start posting three Netflix recommendation every Sunday. Starting today! Think I can do it? We’ll see!
GAGA: FIVE FOOT TWO
Netflix made a documentary about Lady Gaga and it is now available to stream! This film pairs really well with a giant joint and a lazy afternoon. I had no idea how much physical pain Lady Gaga deals with on the regular. Five Foot Two is definitely an interesting little glimpse into the life of a global star.
I tried to watch The Fall when it first came out but just found it way too sick and intense. I randomly tried watching it again on the weekend though and now I’m totally hooked. Normally I have no patience for stories about men killing women but this series is riddled with strong women. Gillian Anderson who you probably know from The X-Files and Archie Panjabi who you probably know from The Good Wife are both super great in this series, as they are in everything.
Even though The Fall is super dark, it constantly reminds me of the fact that writing for a living really isn’t stressful at all in the grand scheme of things, which make me feel totally relaxed. I highly recommend practicing an Irish accent while you watch this show and … not watching it if you are a woman living alone.
JERRY BEFORE SEINFELD
Jerry Seinfeld has a new comedy special on Netflix called Jerry Before Seinfeld and it is definitely classic Jerry goodness. Here’s a funny promo for it where he meets Underwood from House of Cards.
Alright I’m off to watch more of The Fall … Happy Netflixing!
