Image result for netflix originals

Here’s the first part of this post where I list my thoughts on some Netflix originals that I have had a chance to see. Without any preamble, Here are the rest:

Dear White People – I didn’t expect to like this as I wasn’t so taken by the movie version of it. But yep, it was pretty smart and funny with some good acting thrown into the mix. Also, I’m always game for 30 minute episode Netflix shows.

Sense 8 – I started but haven’t finished and when it got canceled I kinda moved it down to the list. For fans of the show who don’t know already, the show has been given a 2 hr movie green light to wrap up the story lines.

Master of None – My heart is always filled with glee when a show I love doesn’t fall into a second season slump. Season was perfection. Even with the Italian girl who I disliked a lot. I always wonder how a show that has (to me) subpar acting produces such excellence. That’s a testament to how good the show is. If you can’t watch the whole season, do yourself a favor and watch the “New York, I Love You” and “Thanksgiving” episode. Greatness.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 3) – I don’t care much for this show. I find every single character annoying but I have to say this season was the one season I found the funniest and actually laughed.

The Keepers – If you are looking for a documentary to remind you that the world is evil and religion might be the biggest warfare laid on mankind then this is it. I just couldn’t believe what I was watching or hearing or seeing. I might have watched every episode with my jaw down and my eyes popped. Really good stuff.

Bloodline (Season 3) – This final season was so terrible. Episode 9 was one of the worst things I have ever seen. Netflix did right by putting it out its misery.

House of Cards (Season 5) – For a show I love so much, it was hard to admit that this season was a bit of a dud. It was so all over the place and it was not till the last 2 or 3 episodes that I saw signs of a show I recognized.

F is For Family (Season 2) – The other animated original on Netflix. It’s funny how I hated it first time I watched it. Someone insisted it was funny and I gave it another shot. This season was so good.

Orange is the New Black (Season 5) – Another show that I really enjoy. Even the third season a lot of people didn’t like. It failed me this season. I just. I don’t know…I don’t think packing a whole season into 3 days after a major death was a good idea. It just seemed to have no direction. I have to say I did like the finale.

Glow – Based on a true life show in the 80’s on the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. I quite enjoyed it. It’s not the deepest of shows and people seem to be turned off by the wrestling aspect of it but it’s a fun watch that gives most of the ladies an identity with a focused story line.

Okja – I thought this movie was pretty shitty. But the general consensus was that it was great so don’t trust my opinion yet till I get a chance to see it again and conclude.

Gypsy – I felt rage and annoyance watching this show. It has a pretty intriguing story line but it gets to a point where if every single character is unlikable it just ruins the show and you just want everyone to die. I hope it doesn’t get renewed. 

Well, there you have it folks. Those are all the shows I have managed to see so far. I have to say that I did not see any of the comedy specials which is why you don’t see them on the list. Have you seen any? What did you think? For those of you looking for something to watch, hope you are able to find at least one or two things from the list.
