Netflix Recommendations III: 5 Things to Watch

Like every anti-social millennial ever, I spend a lot of time on Netflix. Like, a lot a lot. So much so that if I type the letter ‘n’ in my browser, Netflix is the first thing that comes up, beating my own blog and also my online banking. Oops.

As I watch so much Netflix, I feel like it is my duty to pass on my knowledge and write these posts about the things I watch. You know, so other people don’t have to face the cruel reality of social life and have some ideas for the sweet escape that Netflix so kindly provides. I’ve already done two of these (one on Once Upon a Time and one on The Crown) and I decided to spice things up a little with part 3: that is, I will recommend 5 series, not just one! How crazy is that?!

Watch the Classics with me #1: The Breakfast Club (1985)

As my first ever episode of Watch the Classics with me (read more about the ‘Classics series’ here, where I explain the concept and talk about Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein), I decided to write about this great film I’ve only seen fairly recently. Yes, you guessed it from the title: it’s The Breakfast Club.

Top 5 Films of 2017

I love films. I watch them all the time, I go to the cinema as much as I can and my Netflix list is probably as long as the Great Wall of China. I love films because they offer escape, entertainment and a good excuse to snack on unhealthy food. They are also my favourite kind of social activity (because you get to be quiet and not social at all, yet it still counts as spending time with people).

2017 has brought many films to the table. I was excited to see many of them and I went to the cinema so many times. I have made a list of all the films I watched, and I picked my favourite five to share with you.

Christmas means a lot of things: family, joy, happiness… but also tons of food, tacky jumpers, holiday songs and films. And since my blog is all about geeky and nerdy stuff, I decided to write about my 3 ultimate favourite Christmas films and why I love them.

Netflix Recommendations I: Once Upon a Time Reboot (S7)

If you’re anything like me, chances are you’ll always be looking for something new to watch on Netflix. I mean, how else am I supposed to eat my breakfast/lunch/dinner if not whilst watching something great and entertaining? (Seriously, this has now become an issue – I actually get up earlier than I normally would just so I can watch something during breakfast time.)

Well, if you are a little bit lost and don’t know what to watch, or if you’re just looking for any future possibilities and stuff to put on your list: you came to the right place. I bring you: my Netflix Recommendations – part 1!

I can’t believe October is over! It’s gone by so fast.

Anyway, not to get ahead of myself: let me just appreciate October for the great month it was by sharing with you some of my favourites – geeky style, of course.

FEEL GOOD TV SHOWS: What to watch when feeling down

We all have those days when we feel down. Sometimes there is a good reason for it, sometimes it’s just something that came over you out of nowhere and you can’t quite explain why you’re feeling this way. And when this time comes, it can sometimes be hard to deal with it. Friends, good cup of tea and some delicious snack might help but what I find really useful is to just immerse myself in a different world: and that’s when TV shows come in. If you like me feel the need to escape the real world then read on: these are my favourite TV shows to binge watch when I’m feeling blue.
