Netflix Watchlist September 2015

Hello and Welcome to Saving Face Beauty!

When you’re not too busy picking apples, taking long walks in a leave-changing park, or getting your fill of pumpkin spice, the start of a new season can be a good time for discovery. Specifically discovering new Netflix shows to binge on.

Without further ado, here’s what’s on my current Netflix Watchlist.

Wentworth

This show comes highly recommended by Nicole of Young, Wild and Polished. Make no mistake, this is not a knock off of Orange is the New Black. If anything, it’s a step up. At least, according to Nicole. So if you’re going through some Orange withdrawals, Wentworth is probably a show worth considering.

Merlin

This show, following a young Merlin through the discovery and mastery of his powers, is probably one of the most corny, yet satisfying, shows that BBC America has to offer. I’ve already seen this show from beginning to end and ‘can’t hardly wait’ to rewatch. I realize this show is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but keep this in mind: Guinevere is black and King Arthur (Bradley James) is super cute and apparently has Jungle Fever (you gotta love a man with a hint of jungle fever), and Gawain eventually gets sucked up by a vortex shaped like a huge vagina. #spoilers Who needs Doctor Who?

Snowpiercer

I haven’t seen it yet and I feel like I have to. I also need to watch Interstellar, but frankly I’m scared. I don’t like watching movies where there’s a chance I could get even a little emotional. 

Hercules

“No way I won’t say I’m in LOVE!” My mother would say this was my favorite Disney movie as a child. Followed closely by Aladdin.

Anastasia

Reliving my childhood seems to be a theme. Besides I love the soundtrack to this movie as well.

Twilight

For all those times when your period makes you do all kinds of irrational things.

Miss Fischer’s Murder Mysteries

The perfect mix between Downton Abbey and Murder, She Wrote. And the costumes…FABULOUS!

A Young Doctor’s Notebook

This show stars Daniel Radcliffe - a young doctor freshly graduated from medical school who documents his experiences as a new physician, and Jon Hamm - the older version of the same man reliving those experiences through the reading of his old journals. His motives, for now, remain a  mystery. So far, I appreciate how unapologeticlly graphic this show is. Needless to say it seems promising. Besides, Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm…what’s not to love!      

Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Sometimes all I want to do is order Indian take out and watch a Bollywood movie about, I don’t even know what. You know, keeping it authentic.

Others:

  • Peaky Blinders
  • Bloodline
  • Turn – Washington Spies
  • Skins
  • Defiance
  • Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story
  • Cleopatra
  • Grace of Monaco
  • The Immigrant

Thanks for Reading and Remember that binging is always acceptable when Netflix is involved.
