It’s been a while since I’ve done a Netflix post, so today I’d like to know what everyone is watching? What show can’t you get enough of? What have you watched recently? What are your Netflix must watch shows?
I’ll share my current top 5:
- Chef’s Table | I love cooking shows in general but I’m especially enamored with this show. The chefs get really personal and open up about what cooking and food means to them. It’s touching and inspiring to see them in this way. There are also lots of new places on my list of places to eat! I also like seeing the connections across Netflix. For example, the chef featured in the first episode of this show has a cameo on Master of None as himself.
- The Get Down| The second and final part was released not long ago. This takes you on a journey through time to visit the music scene of the 70’s through the eyes of a high school kid growing up in the Bronx. I really enjoyed this show and ended up watching a show that popped up under “more like this” called Hip-Hop Evolution. There’s some great music history covered in this documentary style show full of interviews with some of the biggest as well as lesser recognized artists who paved the way for Hip-Hop.
- Designated Survivor| It’s back for season 2! Honestly, if you aren’t already watching, I’d recommend waiting until all of the episodes are available to start it. The beauty of Netflix is no commercials and watching episodes as you please so having to wait each week for a new episode is annoying. On the bright side, if you haven’t seen it, you can watch season 1 while you wait for the rest of season 2 to come out. This has politics, drama, and suspense all in one place.
- Master of None | I’d been waiting for this one to come out for a while! I enjoyed it even though it didn’t last long because it’s only 10 half hour episodes. Some of the characters are quirky which I love! I especially loved the travel and food incorporated into this season. If you haven’t seen season one, it’s a show about an actor in New York who acts in commercials. There’s a lot of diversity in the cast and I enjoy the hints of other storylines in addition to the main character’s.
- Feed the Beast| I was on the fence as to whether or not to start it but I did enjoy it. It’s about two friends that decide to open a restaurant together after one of them is released from prison. There are quite a few hurdles to overcome to open a fancy restaurant in the Bronx and has enough drama to keep you interested in this 10 episode season.
