Ozark (Season 1)

Before watching Ozark, I thought Mindhunter was definitely going to win my number one spot for best Netflix show of the year. Granted, there are still many promising first place contenders coming up (Stranger Things 2, The Punisher), but I didn’t expect Ozark to push Mindhunter of its pedestal so quickly. Should have seen it coming though, since I’ve always had a soft spot for Jason Bateman, and his character Martin Byrde is especially intriguing.

Mindhunter (Season 1)

It’s been a while since I sat down, watched a show, and felt inspired to discuss it. It’s also been a while since a show has managed to be so interesting that I’ve stopped scrolling through Tumblr while watching it (I have a problem focusing on only one thing at the time). Yet Mindhunter managed to do both, all while showing me the beginning of criminal profiling – something that I have always had a personal interest towards.

CB: Netflix Got Me By the Balls & Other Delights

Technically, Netflix didn’t get me by the balls because I have none but it felt like the best possible phrasing for this week’s Commercial Break. Why?

Glow (Season 1)

Netflix has become like that family member who keeps showing up at family gatherings and taking the spotlight from everyone else because it’s Netflix, and that’s what Netflix does. In other words, Netflix has come out with another original show, shocker, right? And while I still haven’t finished watching 13 Reasons Why, I’ve now watched through all 10 episodes of Glow. Here are my random thoughts on the series I ended up not loving.

Santa Clarita Diet (Season 1)

It has been ages since I was thrilled about a TV show and dedicated a full post to it and now I have two I want to talk about – The OA and Santa Clarita Diet. Both are Netflix shows, I saw both ages ago, both have just 10 episodes in their first season and both are weird and quirky in their own special way. One has more unknown names and the other has bigger stars but both have teenage characters who are likeable and precious on their own right. But before I get to the very long and complicated journey of trying to understand The OA, here is my spoiler free take on Santa Clarita Diet.
