Currently Watching On Netflix

Saturday, 29 July 2017

Netflix are killing at the moment with their originals. They seem to be releasing them quicker and quicker all the time and they only seem to be getting better. Whether it be a series or movies, they have been knocking it out of the park.

The Fundamentals of Caring

Equal parts heart breaking and hilarious, this film was really worth the watch. I am a big Paul Rudd fan and even though this is a little more serious than other characters he usually plays, there was plenty of room for his comedy too. I also really enjoyed Craig Roberts' character, and being a fellow Welshie made me like him even more. He's got some awesome films under his belt but it was nice to see him taking on a much bigger role and carrying it so well. 

F is for Family

Hilarious. I don't feel like I need to say anymore. I was a little hesitant at first thinking it was going to be a 'not quite as good' Family Guy. I was wrong. This is a stand alone show, with hysterical comedy and an amazing addition to the Netflix Originals animation genre. Definitely not a cartoon for the kids!

Friends From College

I feel like we've had a massive gap missing and only getting bigger since the end of How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) and now with the cancellation of New Girl that could only be filled with another friendship group based show. Friends From College is that show! With Cobie Smulders from HIMYM joined with a cast of comedy gold actors this is the one to watch out for. The story line follows the characters' hopelessly entangled lives be the eventual downfall of each other. Laugh out loud funny, cringeworthy and heart warming. 


Based on a true story of the 80's TV show Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (GLOW), showing how this random and unlikely group of women became iconic wrestling stars. If Netflix are good at one thing, it's creating period shows that hit the mark perfectly. You are transported back to a decade where women were undervalued and had to fight for their place on the big screen and Netflix smash it out of the park once again.

The Circle

A gargantuan tech company slowly taking over peoples lives and privacy. Emma Watson and Tom Hanks go head to head in a battle to push technology back over the threshold of helpful devices and all life encompassing features. It was quite a scary watch when you think of how close we actually toe the line ourselves in everyday life, attached to our smartphones and social media. This film could show our very near future. 

What have you been watching on Netflix recently?
