Whether you're binge watching or Netflix and Chilling, hats off to the digital streaming behemoth that never ceases to entertain.
Netflix Original Series The Witcher, has developed quite the following this year since its release in late December 2019, becoming one of those Netflix series a handful of people in your social groups tell you “is so good, you have to watch it!”. Having heard this phrase countless times and with additions to “My List” increasing faster than decreasing, I decided I’d finally start the show and finish it within the week. Well, that day has officially come!
I love Shonda Rhimes. Let me put that as the foundation. I love Shonda. Period. Ok, now that has been established: Bridgerton presents very oddly to me as a show.
Barring rare exceptions like Firefly and The Expanse, it is quite hard to find shows with a mixed-race cast wherein the black and/or person of color characters are treated with dignity and equality. It is too much to ask that some stereotypes, humiliation or historically insensitive micro aggression not be evoked. Brigerton is no exception.
To end 2020 and start off 2021 we have some interesting shows and movies for you. Number One Starting off with number one we have Bridgerton. A story of eight siblings searching for love and happiness in the high society of London. The show is inspired by Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels.
Lately, Netflix has grown out to be the eminent streaming app that delivers top-notch series and movies in all possible genres. Especially, Netflix India has hand-picked content with a flabbergasting storyboard and unique style of presentation. The reason why Netflix originals from India are way better than the other shows and movies that are not particularly designed for OTT platforms in India itself is that--these Netflix shows unveil real, sober, and undecorated life. The vulnerable and unembellished side of human life where we curse, fail, and do nasty little things. Where the protagonist can take the unconventional road and be the bad guy--because they don't have to be the saints all the time.

WARNING: IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN HAPPIEST SEASON AND STILL WANT TO, THIS PIECE HAS SPOILERS I'm going to make my point right out of the gate.
I'm known for getting extremely attached and emotionally invested in things very quickly and quite often. Whether it's a band, a movie, a book, or a television series, there are some things that infiltrate my heart and remain there while I obsess over them. Recently, the Netflix original series, Julie and the Phantoms has become that obsession. Not only does it follow a beautiful story, have great music and a strong, young female lead (which we all need more of in our lives), but it also includes three musically inclined male ghosts who have made their way into the hearts of girls everywhere - myself included. What was supposed to be a show created for children, quickly became something that made its way onto the screens of women aged 17-30. Three months after it's premiere, it continues to be discussed among those women on all social media platforms and within group chats all over the world. They can't get enough of Julie and her phantoms, and re-watch the series' one season over and over again while they wait for Netflix to announce a second season.
A magical musical film that is filled with wishes, wonder, and magic. This musical film opens with a grandmother (played by Phylicia Rashad) reads her two grandchildren a bedtime story called The Inventions of Jeronicus Jangle. Inside the book, it is filled with robotic puppetry telling the story while the grandmother narrates the story. The story begins at a shop called Jangles and Things, owned by the young inventor Jeronicus Jangle (played by Justin Cornwell). The song opens "This Day"(not the Usher and Kiana Lede version), a beautiful opening song with his wife Joanne Jangle (played by Sharon Rose) singing along and his daughter Jessica Jangle (played by Diaana Babnicova) and the whole townspeople of Cobbleton dancing with incredible hip hop moves.
Streaming services have been a life-saver for many sitting at home, not sure what to do. Netflix is the most popular choice and is very affordable nine dollars a month.
