Top 5 Current Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows
The amount of times we see our friends posting on their instagram story ‘what is everyone watching on Netflix? I need something new!’ is a lot. And the amount of times we ask said friend ‘can you send me a screenshot of what people say!?’ is also a lot. So, we figured we would mark it down here as a one stop shop of our current favourites - hitting a few different categories. Through film - we can learn, we can laugh, and we get a peek inside someone else’s story - which we of course are all about.
As always - hit us up in the comments if you have a current fave you recommend to your pals!
1. Queer Eye
”Feeling your best is about far more than deciding what color to paint your accent wall or how to apply nightly moisturizer. It's also about creating a life that's well-rounded, filled with humour and understanding--and most importantly, that suits you. At a cultural moment when we are all craving people to admire, Queer Eye offers hope and acceptance”
2. She’s Gotta Have It
”Iconic filmmaker Spike Lee revisits his first feature film with this Netflix original series of the same name. Brooklyn-based artist Nola Darling struggles to stay true to herself and her dreams while dividing her time between her friends, her job and her lovers -- all three of them.”
3. Tales Of The City
”Before Queer as Folk or The L Word helped normalize queerness on TV, Tales of the City was the first network show to depict LGBTQ+ love as something to be celebrated (while breaking new barriers for sex and nudity on the small screen too). The first series was set in 1976 at the height of San Francisco's blossoming queer culture before AIDS started to devastate the LGBTQ+ community just a few years later. The newest series on Netflix fast forwards to present day time, following the story of the characters living at Barbary Lane.”
4. This Is Us
”The series follows the lives of siblings Kevin, Kate, and Randall (known as the "Big Three"), and their parents Jack and Rebecca Pearson. It takes place mainly in the present and uses flashbacks to show the family's past.”
5. The Mindy Project
”Mindy Lahiri is a successful doctor, but when she leaves the office, all bets are off. She wants to become a more well-rounded woman, someone who is punctual, frugal and well-read instead of someone who is obsessed with romantic comedies and likely to give an inappropriate toast at a wedding.”
