The Show To Watch On Netflix Now

The Show You Should Watch On Netflix

Month by month I’m bringing you news of my favorite things to watch on Netflix.  First we talked about the adorable Ellie Kemper in the Netflix Original Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.  Tina Fey can do no wrong.  Don’t argue with me, it’s true.  Then, we talked about Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater, which I really liked, a lot, despite all the critics.  This month we need to talk about Luther. You guys.  LUTHER.  I’ll be honest, I genuinely hesitated for a…

Rosewater the movie

What to watch this month: Rosewater.   As part of my gig as a member of the Netflix Stream Team, every month I’ll share with you what’s worth watching on Netflix.  Last month I shared my affinity for the Netflix Original, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which is still one of my favorites, (how is Ellie Kemper so darling 24/7?!).  This month I’m sharing a new-to-Netflix movie I’ve been anxiously waiting for: Rosewater.

Show You Have To Watch Right Now

Admittedly, I watch less TV right now than I have in the past, but that just means as I’m more selectively watching, the stuff I do watch is straight up awesomesauce.  And one of those awesomesauce shows I’m watching right now is the Netflix Original Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.   Please tell me you’re watching Kimmy Schmidt.  If you’re not, now’s the time to start.

Cure For Your Taylor Swift Addiction

Taylor Swift 1989

Guys, I’m not even kidding when I tell you I can’t stop listening to Taylor Swift.  When I feel like the world is just too much, I turn on Taylor’s (relatively) new album 1989, close my eyes, and sink into the happiness. I’m not even trying to fight it anymore.  I’ve given in to the fact that girlfriend can write, for real write, and her music makes me feel happy inside, all the time.     I was browsing my…
