Hey doll, how is your day going? I’m currently writing this article and watching Bates motel in between. I thought it would be a good idea to talk about the Netflix shows I’m currently loving. Netflix has become my go to entertainment at night when I don’t have anything else to do. I’m always looking for new shows and I guess you are too, because you’re reading this article. So without further ado, here are my favorite Netflix shows at the moment.
You will find actor Killian Scott in a little town playing a preacher. You might know him from Love/Hate, an epic show I also watched on Netflix. I always liked him in that show and I was pleasantly surprised to find him in a new one as the lead character. Love/Hate unfortunately disappeared from my list and I guess it’s not available in the Netherlands anymore. But not to worry, Killian plays the hottest preacher ever in Damnation. Oh, and then there is a very sexy cowboy who tries to kick his butt.
At the end of the first season plot twists are happening all over the place. You will know why the preacher and the cowboy are at each other’s throats. In short, they are working different angles on a strike during the great depression in the year 1929, which is partly going on to improve work and living conditions of the people in the town. It has an interesting story and loveable characters who are all chasing their dreams in a dreamy setting. I really love this show and I can’t wait to see more of Killian Scott as the preacher and that sexy cowboy.
Our parents, or more likely our grandparents used to watch this show all the time. Two rich families getting into drama while wearing fabulous outfits. Back in the day it was all about the glitz and the glam. Think big hair and glittery gowns with gloves. The new revived Dynasty show is also about glitz and glam, but of course adjusted to our time. And yes, it’s about rich families again fighting their way through life. It’s also quite fun with great punchlines and sometimes over the top conversations.
My favorite character is Fallon, the rich daddy’s girl who is trying to get her dad to say he’s proud of her. Portrayed by Elizabeth Gillies who used to play Jade West in Victorious. Her outfits in Dynasty are to die for and she kills, no… Slays this role! If you are looking for a show like Gossip girl (because that is the best), you should definitely watch Dynasty. The little catfights, awesome cast, outfits and storylines will most def get you in the mood to order a feather boa and matching slippers to glide around the house like Fallon does.
Norman Bates was first seen in the movie Psycho. Norman Bates and his mother own and live in a motel. By the end of the movie (spoiler alert!), you’ll find out that Norman killed not only his mother, but also a number of hotel guests. He just doesn’t know it himself because he suffers from a multiple personality disorder. In the Bates motel series, you get to catch up with Norman and Norma Bates which is his mother. You see how Norman slowly transforms into the multiple personalities who will later on start killing.
It’s a slower story in my opinion, but it portrays the crazy things people do to protect their loved ones really well. And although the show is mostly about Norman Bates, his mother Norma Bates is even more interesting to me. Her past is pretty dark, and she does some weird things to keep her family together. She sometimes seems crazier than Norman does, but that keeps it interesting to me. Definitely give this Netflix show a go if you’re into psychological phenomena.
If you ever feel like you suck at dating and love, you must see this show. I repeat, you MUST see this show. It is so funny it made me laugh out loud almost every episode. You’ll get to know Tracey, a girl who is desperate to get rid of her virginity and religious looks. Her mother is very religious and keeps her daughters under lock and key. But Tracey is not to be stopped and she gets out to find herself a man. It turns out she doesn’t have to look very far, because he’s been right in front of her the whole time.
Because she doesn’t have any dating experience she gets into the weirdest situations. It will make you feel like your amazing at dating, trust me. From her first kiss and her first relationship, it’s all so relatable to me. She often breaks character to actually talk to you, which makes this Netflix show very interactive. It’s like she’s your best friend talking to you about her problems, which could very well be your problems too. Just give this super funny show a try and feel less bad about your own love life.
Well babe, I hope you like my recommendations. I’m sure you’re well aware of the popular shows, but these ones will give you your money’s worth.
Enjoy your Netflix subscription and I’ll see you tomorrow,
