Welcome to What’s Working Wednesday – Netflix Addition! As I thought about what I’m loving right now I kept going back to the same thing…Netflix. I debated about whether or not to talk about it because really…Netflix doesn’t add a lot of intention to your life. But ya know what, I think we all need a little indulgence once in while.
So, let’s indulge for a bit and enjoy some TV.
I know…I’m so incredibly late to this party. In fact, I intentionally didn’t watch an episode for months because I knew when I did I would be hooked. And that’s exactly what happened. Two shows in I already had plans to redo almost every room in our house. I’m now having to practice all kinds of self-control not to buy all the new things. However, it’s totally worth it. I’m so inspired by their design style, and I love to watch the dynamics of their relationship. I’m convinced that Chip and Andrew would be best friends if we can just find a way to get on the show. Season 1 is now on Netflix, and you can also find all kinds of good stuff on YouTube.
This ones surprises me a bit, but Andrew and I totally love it. I typically don’t get into cooking competition shows, but I think this one is lovely. It’s so interesting to watch people create these unbelievable masterpieces that require so much skill and obvious passion. I love watching people do what they’re gifted in. The hosts can be a bit annoying, but the contestants and their relationships on the show are fun to watch as well. Plus, everyone is British and I’m a sucker for British television. You have to try at least one episode. I think it will surprise you.
I’m guessing almost everyone has heard of this one, but I have to include it. This Netflix original is a documentary focused on a convicted felon, Steven Avery, who claims his innocence. It’s easy to watch this show and develop all kinds of opinions about whether or not you think he did it, or who really committed the crime. However, I don’t think that’s really the point. The point of the series is to highlight the unjust actions that take place within our justice system. It’s fascinating to watch how seemingly trustworthy people begin to justify certain behavior all in the name of justice. Whatever the opinions of this show, it should make you think and consider the need for reform. My mind was totally blown this summer when I read Just Mercy. If this show leaves you questioning our system, you should read this. I think it gives you an even deeper look into our system and corrupt practices.
Have you watched any of these shows? What did you think?
