As the holidays grow closer, our break from school is becoming more of a reality. Gone will be the days of last minute interviews and commercial making and embrace the time we spend with our beloved family members and our Netflix obbession. If you’re like me, you adore Netflix and treat it like the relationship you always want. Always spending time with your Netflix, curled up on the couch together not judging you wearing the same sweatpants you wore the last time you saw them. As we roll into the holiday break, we can have more time to ourself and our Netflix. These are my top three picks on what to binge this holiday season.
Marvel's Jessica Jones
Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter is a wise cracking, bad ass, wisecracking private investigator who recently gave up her superhero stint to hunt down herhomocidical mind controlling ex-boyfriend. This dark tale, where Jones can use her super strength and jump super high, but wrestles with her inner self with how she should be a hero. While she wants to be a hero and help her struggle to overcome her own demons. The real show stopper comes from the villain of the show Killgrave played by DavidTennat. He managed to revolt everyone who watched, but when he wasn’t on screen we waited until the next Killgrave scene. Each character has their own plot and well developed throughout the series, but do not steal the show. All and all this show is a must watch and keeps you on the edge of your seat and when it’s over you’ll be wanting more.
Master of None
Aziz Ansari’s newest Netflix show, Master of None follows 30-something year old Dev and his quest to find his career and love life. It follows his friends who are in this in-between stage in their life, where half his friends are settling down and having kids while others are still trying to find someone out there. This Netflix original program shows how muddled and difficult it is to make adult decisions. In this show, it shows an authentic side to how adults are feeling today. If you enjoy Aziz Ansari stand-up and his time on Parks and Recreation, you will pleasantly surprised at this fun and most of all real dating world.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Opening Theme by Jeff Richmond – Netflix
This series written by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock follows a 29 year old Kimmy Schmidt played by Ellie Kemper as she adjust to daily life after being rescued from a doomsday cult in Indiana where she was held captive with 3 other women. Kimmy has an impossible happy attitude and finds everything amazing, even the scummy apartment that she shares with her roommate Titus Andromedon and her job as a nanny for an out-of-touch socialite Jacqueline Voorhees. The dark backstory was splashed with jokes that make light out of this crazy situation. The 30 Rock style jokes are not everybodys cup of tea, but this comedy sitcom is one of the best of the year. And trust me, you will be singing along to the theme song for the next week
