In a recent Top Ten Tuesday post, I mentioned that I recently signed up for Netflix. I recently finished Shameless, and I really enjoyed it. Now I’m watching a few different shows, and thought it would be fun to tell y’all about it. Here’s a list of 5 THINGS I’M WATCHING ON NETFLIX.
I just started watching Anne with an “E” a couple of days ago. I had a vague memory that there was some sort of controversy about it when it first came out, but I didn’t recall the details… and I didn’t really care, to be honest. Anne of Green Gables has been a life-long favorite book of mine, and I couldn’t resist watching this. It’s not a strict adaptation of the book, and it’s not like the movie, but it doesn’t matter. Anne with a “E” is charming and delightful in its own way, and I’m enjoying every minute of it! Amybeth McNulty’s portrayal of Anne is just as enchanting as Megan Follows was, in my opinion. I’ve watched nothing else since I started it, so I’m one episode away from finishing the first season.
My sons told me that I needed to watch Daredevil before I watched The Punisher, but did I listen? Nope! Haha! This marks the first time in YEARS that I’ve seen anything in the MCU before they have, and I have to say I’m enjoying that almost as much as I’m enjoying the show. I’ve only seen four episodes in so far, but I’m completely hooked!
(I’ll eventually get around to watching all the Marvel series on Netflix, sooner or later. I’ve heard good things about ALL of them.)
Weeds is a series I never thought I’d be interested in, but I’m really liking it so far. I’ve only watched five episodes so far, but that was long enough to see that Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the (deceased) husband of Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker). Is there anything that guy hasn’t been in?!
Nurse Jackie is unique in this list, in that I’ve only watched a single episode but I already know how it ends. I read about the series in a book I recently reviewed, and it intrigued me so much I added it to my watch list. It ran for seven seasons, so maybe by the time I reach the end of it, I’ll have forgotten what happens in the final episode.
Frontier is something I knew I had to watch as soon as I saw it. No, not because Jason Momoa is in it, but because of the premise. I’m a sucker for historical dramas, and this features one I’ve never seen before—the North American fur trade in the 1700s. This is the series I’ve watched the least of so far (literally just five minutes), but I plan to watch more over the weekend.
That’s it for my watch list at the moment. These will keep me busy for a little while!
Any suggestions for what to watch once I’ve finished with these? Let me know what you think in the comments, and I’ll let you know if it’s already on my list!
