Recently Watched on Netflix #2
I am a big Netflix fan. Who isn’t? I watch it on my commute, on my lunch break and in the evenings.
This month I have watched my regular amount (about 20 hours!) and I thought I would share my recently watched list.
Queer Eye: More than a Makeover
I binge-watched this series last month but this month I’ve been re-watching my favourite episode (pretty much all of them) because it brings me so much joy. Love it!
Daniel Sloss Live
I remember watching this comedian about seven years ago on New Year’s Eve, and I still remember his punchlines. He’s a young comedian and has that dry wit that I love! I was thrilled to see he had two live shows on Netflix and binge-watched them on my way home one evening. They’re emotional, thought-provoking and flipping hilarious.
I have watched this documentary about six times but it gets me in the heart. A really interesting and in-depth look at the treatment of killer whales at Seaworld. I love these creatures and whilst this is a dark and sometimes difficult documentary to watch it reminds me to treat animals well and to take zoos and sealife centres with a pinch of salt.
Iliza: Elder Millennial
If you watch one comedy show on Netflix this year watch this one. I probably watch this show at least once a month, ever since I first watched it. Every skit is true to me and I adore Iliza and her comedy. She’s fantastic.
East Side Sushi
I adore sushi. I would eat sushi all day, every day if I could. But I can barely afford it – it’s most of the reason I have an overdraft these days. So when I saw there was a movie about sushi and a characters love of sushi I was all for it. A good hangover, low budget movie.
I had never seen this movie before, I know right, but I fancied a low-focus romcom. Who can help but fall in love with Matthew Goode as a sarcastic Irishman? Amy Adams annoys me but it’s worth watching just for Matthew Goode honestly.
Feminists: What Were They Thinking?
This new Netflix documentary is a must-watch for feminists and fans of the Second wave feminism. I have done a lot of research on the American and British Feminists of the 70s and 80s and this raw and artistic documentary is adding more information to my research.
Lessons from a School Shooting: Notes from Dunblane
I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about Britain’s last school shooting in Dunblane, Scotland. I know it had a large impact on gun legislation in the UK but I had no idea it practically stopped school shootings in the UK’s tracks. In America, though it is a completely different story. There have been over 1600 school shootings in the USA since 2014. That’s a ridiculously high number. A poignant documentary on two priests discussing the horrors of their communities school shootings.
