As winter quickly approaches us, the rain starts becoming more frequent, and annoyingly you have to possibly even wipe down your car before heading to work, nights in never looked so good. But alas my friends, the Netflix gods have yet again bestowed their blessings on us with more quality tele that will have ‘ya hooked for a while (imagine if our binges were a dating show, we’d probably get hooked on that too.)
With so much damn content, you’ll never have a better reason to order food and binge watch for all your nights, so here are our picks to get involved in.
Master Of None (Season 2)
Release Date: 12/05/17 (Go watch it!)
Our favourite socially loveable comedian is back with the second season of the much-acclaimed Master Of None series. We’ve seen it time again, when a first season is so good that a second is often hard to live up to. Not the case here, because S2 is bloody incredible.
You’d be hard pressed not relating to at least one of the several dating situations in the show, and sliced up with Aziz’s topical and witty humour, it’s a real winner. We of course join Aziz after he’s just on his way over to Italy after a crushing break up, but the tales of S2 will make you fall in love all over again.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 3)
Release Date: 19/05/17 (Go watch it!)
See above. Like MON, UKS gets better with age as the show heads into Season 3. Kimmy is her usual self – and that’s a win for you fans out there, plenty to love about Kimmy as she is. And S3 builds on the previous season by throwing in a couple of twists and turns.
But what I find most enjoyable about this series is the writing. Dealing with serious social, cultural and even political topics with wit and finesse. The comedy is on point as you would imagine, oh and Kimmy is also going to college! (Also Titus you are the best.)
House Of Cards (Season 5)
Release Date: 30/05/17 (Not much longer to go..)
Your favourite President and First Lady are back as your favourite out of control, deceptive, powerful political couple. After a few seasons now, it almost feels that they are so bloody bad, that they’re good. And this season of course comes after the shock and horror of Trump, so extra meaning is bound to be felt.
From the trailer alone you can feel the darkness surrounding this season, so dark yet so damn addicting. Frank just wants to be emperor of the whole world, and you vibe he will be even more ruthless (if that’s even possible), this season. We’ve seen a few trailers and teasers pop up, including an eerie-address from Mrs Underwood herself, so strap yourselves in – this shit is going to be apocalyptic.
Orange Is The New Black (Season 5)
Release Date: 09/06/17 (Not long to go..)
The lovely ladies from Litchfield Penitentiary are back for the fifth season of the brilliant drama. Although plenty has been said about apparent leaks, this girl is waiting out for that HD goodness – and hey only a few more weeks now left. DAMMIT Netflx give me the episodes!
S5 will be in real-time, with the entire series happening over three days in show time (amazing, right?) And continues straight after Poussey’s death in S4. Tensions are real and the stakes have never been higher. I’m not saying I want to go to prison, but every season makes me wonder.
GLOW (Season 1)
Release Date: 23/06/17 (A month isn’t that far, right?)
The hype is strong with this one. Bringing back the vibes of the 80s show, GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling) is the newest addition to Netflix’s vastly growing catalogue originals. The much loveable Alison Brie (I’m claiming spirit animal) stars as Ruth Wilder in this story about women’s wrestling.
Breathing in women’s equality, rights and power, there are already huge expectations for the show. Playing off both old and modern stereotypes, GLOW takes a subject matter you probably didn’t even know existed, and brings it to life in only the way Netflix can.
Stranger Things (Season 2)
Release Date: 31/10/17 (Yeah look, hibernation is probably a good option)
JUST HURRY UP AND ARRIVE ALREADY MY GOD I CAN’T HANDLE IT.
