I honestly blame Netflix for my current condition. And by condition, I mean binge-watching just about every show that looks good. I need help. Send help. However, here’s the silver lining; new suggestions for you to watch. That makes it all worth it, don’t you think? 😌
The series was inspired by Stephanie Land’s 2019 memoir, Maid. I honestly loved this show and I almost didn’t binge it because I know it’s a mini-series. Which means I wasn’t getting a second season. This show is the perfect example of someone working hard but not catching a break, nor making a lot of money. It’s easy to judge someone and just assume that they’re not doing everything in their power to get out of their current situation. But sometimes it just isn’t that easy. And I’m not even going to mention the endless government hoops just to get a tiny bit of help. The series also shows a different side of domestic abuse, which isn’t normally seen or spoken about. All in all, I definitely recommend watching Maid.
On My Block (final season)
Where to start. When the first season of On My Block came out, I didn’t really know what to expect. Was it just going to be another show about teenagers and weird adventures? Like Riverdale? But boy was I wrong. And here we are now, season 4 which is also the final season. This was an emotional but good ending to a great show. I won’t share any spoilers, but I will tell you to keep some Kleenex handy.
Midnight Mass. To be honest I still don’t really know how I feel about this show. When I first started watching it, the first thing I noticed were some actors that were made to look (much) older. Which is weird, because why wouldn’t you just use old people? Now, after I’ve seen the whole season it makes sense. The show is good, which is why I added it to this list, but I’m not sure what the message behind it is.
I’m probably not the first nor the last person to tell you about this show. Because it has gone more than viral. I loved the mystery, drama, action, and acting in this show. Also seeing Gong Yoo wasn’t too bad either, because I loved him in Train To Busan. Even though his appearance in Squid Game was short. Anyway, Squid Game makes you root for people and then rips them away in seconds. And that’s what makes a show good, not knowing what to expect. So along with many other people who have already suggested this show to you, I’m telling you to watch this show.
Sex Education (season 3)
I’m not ashamed to say that I watched every single episode of season 3 in about 2 days. Where do I get the time? I skip everything. Also being an introvert has its perks. This season was great and I loved that other characters were put in the spotlight. I mean can we talk about the chemistry between Otis and Ruby? Or the development of Adam? Or the different types of love? I just love this show and I cannot wait for season 4.
Well, that’s all for now. But since my condition has no cure (not that I would want it), I’m sure I’ll be back soon with new suggestions. 🙋🏽♀️
