What to Watch on Netflix


Here's a comprehensive list of the most BingeWorthy TV in my opinion. These are all shows that have come out in the last 3 months. I know everyone is watching Wednesday (the Addams family) but here are some other good shows not to miss. 

Pamela, a Love Story releases Jan 31

Netflix describes it as an intimate and humanizing portrait of one of the world’s most famous blonde bombshells and follows the trajectory of Pamela Anderson’s life and career from small-town girl to international sex symbol, actor, activist and doting mother.

Last year Hulu had the miniseries Pam & Tommy which Pam claims to have not watched and wanted to release her own story. The hulu show followed the story of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee's relationship, going back to their whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995 and how their infamous tape was stolen. I also highly recommend watching The Dirt on netflix to learn more about Tommy. Pamela is now 55 and even though she has had quite a few plastic surgeries she said she will never get botox so she is aging naturally in Hollywood. I hope the documentary discusses her relationship with  Julian Assange as she used to go visit him while he was holed up at the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK.

Your Place Or Mine - February 10
A rom com chick flick staring Reese Witherspoon, Ashton Kutcher and Jesse Williams.

Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal - February 22nd
The documentary series is about one of South Carolina’s most prominent families, starting with the death of teenager Mallory Beach in a drunken boating accident that began the unraveling of their legacy. When Paul Murdaugh – the alleged driver of the boat – and his mother Maggie are found brutally murdered, a century of corruption, power, and cover-ups in the Low Country is brought to light. The three-part series will feature first-hand accounts from those on the boat that fateful night, many of whom have not spoken about the crash or double homicide of Maggie and Paul until now. I've followed this case closely so I'm curious if they will have any new info?


Harry & Meghan

Love them or hate them, you know you still want all the tea. I'm listening to his book right now!


Madoff : The Monster of Wall Street

This series explores the rise and fall of financier Bernie Madoff who orchestrated one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in Wall Street history.


Emily in Paris

On season 3 she's dressing less over the top.


I am a Killer

Death row inmates convicted of capital murder give firsthand accounts of their crimes in this documentary series. They're on season 4 and I started off watching only the episodes with a female prisoner before I started watching some of the male prisoners. It's interesting because the women all have the same story, they had dysfunctional childhoods, domestic violence in relationships, then killed their partner. It's clear they didn't have the background to make better choices for themselves. Not making any excuses for their crime, but rather saying they were set up in life to fail. 


The Crown: Season 5

I didn't watch the previous seasons, but now that they are talking about Diana I had to tune in. Prince William said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that he watching as well and fact checking. lol 


From Scratch

I read the book a few years ago and wrote the review here. The netflix series is based on the memoir of Tembi, an African-American woman who did a semester of college in Florence in 1990 where she met her Sicilian husband, a chef.  His family doesn't accept her so they move to Los Angeles for him to become a chef until he has health problems. 


Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich

This documentary shares socialite Ghislane's life story and stories from victims of her accomplice Jeffrey Epstein.


High: Confessions of an Ibiza Drug Mule 

Arrested for smuggling cocaine, Michaella McCollum offers a first-hand account of her shocking journey through the illicit world of drug trafficking. An Irish national, she was working at a club in Ibiza when a chance encounter got her locked up in prison in Peru. 


The Good Nurse

Based on the true story of an overburdened ICU nurse who leans on her selfless new colleague at work and at home — until a patient's unexpected death casts him in a suspicious light. A dark true-crime drama about ICU nurse Charles Cullen who became a serial killer murdering patients with deadly doses of insulin and digoxin — a cardiac medication used to treat irregular heartbeats in New Jersey in 2003.  Oscar winners Eddie Redmayne and Jessica Chastain play the two nurses. 


Somebody Feed Phil

"Everybody Loves Raymond" creator Phil Rosenthal travels the globe to take in the local cuisine and culture of Bangkok, Lisbon, Mexico City and more.  Season 6 is out and I had to watch his episode in Nashville since I recently went there. In Season 5 he went to Oaxaca. 


The Watcher

Based on the true story of a couple who in 2014 bought a sprawling house in the idyllic New Jersey suburb of Westfield. However, things quickly devolved when the family were targeted by The Watcher, who terrorized them with a series of ominous letters. Ya'll I was mesmerized with this mystery series!


Luckiest Girl Alive

Based on a fictional book of the same title, A writer's perfectly crafted New York City life starts to unravel when a true-crime documentary forces her to confront her harrowing high school history. Starring Mila Kunis, the movie does cover some triggering topics with assault. I reviewed the book here. 


The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist 

A group of LA teenagers arrested in 2009 for stealing from celebrity homes inspired a media frenzy and a movie. Now, two of them, out of prison, tell their stories.


Untold: The girlfriend who didn't exist  Notre Dame to the NFL, Manti Te'o's future in football 

His career had a lot of promise until a secret online relationship sent his life and career spiraling. See in 2012  Te'o "met" a girl on facebook and they spoke over the phone but never met in person. She became his girlfriend until she died. Later it was revealed he had been catfished by a man and the embarrassment caused him to lose his high spot in the NFL draft pick. His catfisher was on Dr. Phil and had no remorse. 


Inventing Anna

I know this came out a year ago, but this was honestly the best thing I watched last year. Inventing Anna is a series about Anna Delvey, real name Anna Sorokin, who managed to trick her way into New York City’s elite social scene and convince them she was a German heiress. Inventing Anna is an American television miniseries created and produced by Shonda Rhimes that was inspired by the article in New York Magazine titled “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People” by Jessica Pressler. I, however, read the book My Friend Anna by Rachel DeLoache Williams which I reviewed here.

Comedy

I used to go to my local improv all the time as I love comedy shows! I took a break during the pandemic and only went three times to a comedy show last year.  I didn't care for Whitney Cummings and Iliza Schlessinger recent netflix specials. 

Fortune Feimster: Good Fortune

Fortune reflects on her own good fortune, including some big life events she's experienced the last couple years like falling in love with her wife and the extravagant proposal she planned that didn't go as expected, and much more. In case you're wondering Fortune is her middle name. I like her as a comedic because she's sweet, it's not raunchy, and you can tell she's actually a nice person. 


Chelsea Handler: Revolution

I saw this show live when she came to my city last year. She lets loose on her life choices, rowdy rescue dogs, dating frustrations, and why society owes women an apology. Her boyfriend at the time Jo Koy was on tour with her and is listed as director for this special. It's called revolution because her view of love and relationships have been through a revolution.


Peacock

I don't have cable so I purchased their Black Friday special of one year for $20. I get the channel through my roku although I had to upgrade to the newest roku box for the channel to appear. Otherwise it's $5 a month if you purchase now.  I can now watch all the Housewives enterprises and  Ultimate Girls Trip. 

The Housewives of Miami season 4 was just released! I think Miami is different from other cities because most of the women are friends in real life and you can see that connection. Lisa and Lenny's marriage falls apart and everything is filmed. These ladies bring the drama and fashion!


The Best Man the Final Chapters
The original movie came out in 1999, then a sequel came out in 2013, and now we have this mini series with the same cast. They are in their 50s but you know Black doesn't crack and they haven't aged a day! If you were a huge fan of this franchise, you will love this!  The characters embody what it means to be successful Black people and navigating friendships from college into older adulthood. Filmed on a beach location so the set is gorgeous. Morris Chestnut still looks fine! 

Amazon Prime

Daisy Jones & the Six - releases March 3

Based on the best selling book of the same name, follows a fictional, dramatic '70s rock band partly inspired by Fleetwood Mac. In 1977, Daisy Jones & The Six were on top of the world; the band had risen from obscurity to fame, and then, after a sold-out show at Chicago's Soldier Field, they called it quits; now, decades later, the band members agree to reveal the truth.
