It’s a hot Sunday afternoon. I should be studying now, (CPALE in a few months!) but here I am, working on a not-so-important blog post about a bunch of series I’ve watched on Netflix.
There are still a lot of really good series out there that I haven’t watched yet, so I might write an update from time to time. Also, if ever your favorites didn’t make it to the high tier section then please be reminded that all of what’s written here are my personal thoughts and opinions.
Recommendations are open in the comments section, though. Change my mind, if you want to.
Here’s a little legend to help you:
These are all in random order.
Sense8 – sci-fi/drama. Strong character personalities, culture diversity, and addresses social issues. Will definitely rewatch!
Black Mirror – sci-fi/anthology. Disturbing but really, really good.
Stranger Things – sci-fi. Family-friendly. Not much of a deep story plot but entertaining.
The End of the F***ing World – romcom(?). Dark comedy. Uses a lot of swear words lol but really funny. Main actors are perfect for the role. Also, perfect soundtrack!
The Umbrella Academy – sci-fi. Based on a comic book. Kids with superpowers stuff and all. Also family-friendly. Very, very good soundtrack.
Mindhunter – psychological/thriller. Characters are based on real-life murderers (e.g., Ed Kemper, Ted Bundy). A fresher look on docu series.
You – romance/thriller. Based on a book with the same title. Has a very convincing main character who’s really hard not to like. Lol.
Bates Motel – psychological/suspense/drama. Story is really interesting, and will leave you with questions after each episode. The suspense/thriller component is really convincing, too!
Dark – sci-fi/thriller. A foreign film, so it’s on a foreign language on Netflix. Interesting plot, but is a bit slow on the first five episodes. You also have to give really good attention to details.
The 100 – sci-fi/drama. One of my favorites, to be honest. Has one or two shit seasons but if you stick with it, it gets better. Good character development, too.
The Haunting of Hill House – thriller/drama. None much of the scary stuff but the storytelling is really good. Superb cinematography. Script is well-written.
How I Met Your Mother – sitcom. First sitcom I’ve ever finished, actually. Originality and story, check. Has more of the emotional component than other sitcoms. A lot of people didn’t liked the ending, and I’m still undecided about it too. Lol.
Friends – another sitcom. Quite overrated, but it’s good. Really relatable characters!
Sex Education – comedy/teen drama. Do not actually contain sexual scenes, like the title suggests. Addresses some relevant social issues too.
13 Reasons Why – psychological/drama. The show is getting backlash from some viewers because of its graphic scenes and suicide romanticization, but I think it sends a strong message to its viewers.
Santa Clarita Diet – suspense/comedy. Contains some gore. CGI/cosmetic art is impressive. Poor plot, and script-writing for a show that tries to be funny.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – thriller/teen drama. It’s entertaining for teenagers. Lol.
Maniac – psychological/sci-fi. Concept is really interesting, but it was executed poorly. Poor storytelling, too. Quite disappointed with this one.
Not included in my list are those I didn’t finish maybe because I got bored or it just did not seem interesting for me at all, like Riverdale (stopped watching after Season 1) and Orange is the New Black.
I’m also planning to watch other shows like Breaking Bad, Lucifer, and Gilmore Girls.
If you can recommend other shows for me, leave it in the comments section!
