13 Reasons Why was released on Netflix on 31st March 2017, it is based on a novel of the same name. It is 13 Reasons Why Hannah Baker killed herself, told through recordings on cassette tapes and to be passed onto each person who helped her reach that horrendous point.
The Crown is a new drama from Netflix which is focused on Queen Elizabeth II. The first series takes a look at a young Elizabeth first getting married to Phillip and then becoming Queen after the death of her father. Having to balance her new role and her marriage is the key thing we are looking at in this series.
I fall into that Netflix binge watching of TV series every now and then, that was exactly the same with Full House. Something I had heard a lot about over the years (launching the Olsen twins career) but strangely I had never actually watched it before. Running from 1987 (the year I was born) until 1995 with an impressive 8 seasons it certainly has all of the qualities of TV shows from the 80/90s.
The very start of the show is Danny Tanner having to come to terms with the death of his wife and then facing the task of raising his three daughters. He isn’t going to be doing this alone though as his brother in law Jesse is going to help along with his friend Joey. I guess we can compare to Three Men and a Baby then Three Men and a Little Lady except they have three girls to raise and one is still a baby!
Yes, I have had another obsession via Netflix when it comes to a TV Series. I know it has been a while since the whole Gossip Girl binge but at least this one was a little bit different as I had seen a couple of the episodes randomly and not in any particular order. So I didn’t really get what it was all about. But a month or so ago now I started watching it and in true Netflix style could not stop, next episode, next episode and it did not really take me a massive amount of time to watch all 9 seasons. It was very sad getting to the last season and then few episodes though, something I am pleased I have just watched now as the age of the characters at the start is pretty much where I am at now so it certainly touched a lot of nerves throughout.
In Gotham we see James Gordon starting out in the Police Department as he takes on his first case, the murder of the Wayne’s and how this causes absolute chaos in the city. The series also gives us many different origin stories of the many villains.
Let’s face it Batman has always been on favourite and still is my favourite no matter how hard Iron Man tried! Ok anyway I had tried to watch this and recorded it on Sky, but never actually got round to have the time to watch it. That changed though a few weeks ago when I spotted the series on Netflix. Such an easier way to watch a TV series (and very addictive) next episode, next episode.
Instead of doing season by season review and the fact that I couldn’t wait to watch the next episode or season for that matter. Honestly my life was consumed by Gossip Girl and I could not resist watching the next episode let’s face it though Netflix makes it easy for you. Only having to press a button when faced with this question …
But when you are asked this question three times in one day/night. You actually have to think should I really still be watching? So thank you Netflix for making me judge myself!
Every now and then I tend to become totally obsessed with a TV Show that is on Netflix. I don’t tend to watch a lot of TV shows normally, at the moment I am watching Blue Bloods, Glee and Game of Thrones that is all from the new series of shows that are still being shown on TV. Obviously very sad once Glee starts in the UK that it is the last season, I still enjoy it a lot. This blog post has come about as I have noticed that due to my current TV Show obsession on Netflix I have not been watching any films to review.
A modern-day update as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson take on cases in 21st Century London. I am a little bit behind on catching up with Sherlock considering the first season was originally broadcast in 2010. But thanks to Netflix UK I watched season one and two very quickly as a was taken in by this incredible drama.
Tonight sees the much anticipated launch of Sky Atlantic HD and the premiere of Boardwalk Empire in the UK. A show that we have heard so much about over the past few months and I am really looking forward to it. Another show on tonight is Blue Bloods, I have already set both of them to record on Sky+
Another reason why I have had lack of film review updates for older films is due to the fact that I decided to watch Sex and the City from start to finish all 6 seasons. Then after that I started watching The Golden Girls, after they eventually released the first 4 seasons on DVD in the UK! Lets face it what better option do you have after watching SATC than jumping straight into SATC in older age . . . being The Golden Girls.
