It’s cuffing season! As the cold weather sets in and the daylight hours diminish, most of us will start to lounge around inside more often than during the warmer months. What better way to spend a lazy night or Sunday then watching Netflix with your favourite snack? I have put together a list of offerings available on Netflix Canada for your viewing pleasure. Whatcha waiting for? Put the feet up and dive in!
1. How to Get Away with Murder
I kind of felt like this series starts a bit slow but by the middle of the first season, you are going to be hooked. Basically, a defence lawyer and her students get themselves into some wild situations and have to get themselves out of a lot of intense situations. Starring Viola Davis, there are three seasons on Netflix so far.
2. Gaga: Five Foot Two
Even if you don’t love Lady Gaga, you’ll find some inspiration in this documentary. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta aka Lady Gaga pours herself into her career despite suffering from some heavy health issues. This documentary is just under two hours long and gives you an inside look on Gaga as she promotes her album and gears up for her Superbowl performance.
The other day I was explaining this as a raunchy version of Modern Family. An alcoholic father and his offspring go through a ton of ups and downs as the oldest sister tries to care for her younger siblings. I can’t recommend this series enough.
I haven’t got too deep into this series but so far, so good. It follows a young go-getter who is sick of where she is at in life. She starts doing her own thing by scouring thrift shops for expensive finds and resells them for what they are worth. This one is relatable for any young adult trying to find their place in the adult world.
5. Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life
Love him or hate him, you know you like at least one of Chris’ tracks. This documentary really reminds those like myself who aren’t superfans about the success Chris Brown has had. After working with Usher from his teenage years to performing a tribute to the late Michael Jackson at the BET Awards and of course the entire assault trail after his altercation with Rihanna this really puts things into perspective.
Hope you find something to watch, I’m going to go watch How to Get Away with Murder now!
