What am I going to be doing this summer holiday? Why, working and watching tv shows of course. Primarily, I’m going to be watching game of thrones and the new season of team wolf – but everybody knows about those. Let’s talk about some tv shows that need a little more recognition.
JAWBREAKER. I have a thing for old high school movies, you might have noticed; especially ones that feature mean girls and murder. I feel as though this is such an underrated movie. Sure, it might seem a little superficial at some times, but the storyline isn’t that bad and the mix of characters is actually pretty good! It’s definitely something worth checking out if you like movies like Heathers or the Breakfast club.
THE CRAFT. This one might not be something you would watch again, but it’s a memorable experience. Once again, it’s set in high school but this time it features a whole lot of dark magic and the characters are mayhem personified. The effects are a little fake, but I adored the entire cast. It’s pretty dark, it might be considered a little old fashioned and fake in comparison to today’s movies, but it’s on my list of favourites for sure.
BLACK MIRROR. This show is deep. It makes you think about people, technology and the meaning of life – all the while managing to keep you entertained and on your toes. My particular favourite is Hated in the Nation, which deals with public shaming and group think. Have you ever wondered about the consequences of joining in on an online witch hunt? Now you will.
THE 100. You might have read the book but trust me, the show is 100x better. Where the book lacks, the show picks up – and it does it magnificently. One issue that I do have with it though, is the toxic fandom that the show has. Apart from teen wolf, it honestly has some of the most toxic stans. They all hate each other, death threats get sent to the show’s writers and the anti tags are over flowing.
KILLJOYS. If there’s ever been a severely underrated show, this is it. The main character is a kick ass woman of colour named Dutch, whose joined with her rag tag crew of bounty hunters. It follows them in their journey in which they try to stay out of politics, but inevitably end up in the middle of an upcoming intergalactic war. There’s explosions, gun fights and mutants galore – so check it out!
Do you have any netflix recommendations? I can’t promise that I’ll get to them, but I’ll definitely try!
