Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made of - A must-see if you are/were a Backstreet Boys fan. It covers the history of their rise to fame, and it follows the members in present-day as they revisit some parts of their past. I actually teared up a little - and then followed it up with a BSB dance party. Just sayin'.
Better Call Saul - Shawn and I had been impatiently waiting for season 2 for over year... and it's finally here!!! If you were a Breaking Bad fan, do yourself a favor and watch this. I actually think it's better than Breaking Bad (shh!!), but you kinda need the background of Breaking Bad to fully appreciate Better Call Saul - the two just go hand in hand. Plus, Saul and Mike were my favorite characters anyway.
Love - That's basically what the show is about - love... and all it's ugly faces and nasty habits. Yep, it's a story that has been played out time and time again, but I really enjoy the fucked-up-ness of these characters as they navigate their relationships and life in L.A., and I love the sarcastic hilarity of it all.
Lovesick - Shawn and I watched every single episode of this in one sitting; don't judge! The episodes and the seasons are short. It's a show about a guy who finds out he has an STD, and subsequently contacts every girl he has slept with over the previous five years. Each episode focuses on a different girl, and ties his past into his present-day. So good! And the actors are British so, you know, that's a plus.
The Great British Baking Show - Want more Brits? Enjoy watching baking competitions? Watch this. It's so freaking good. The one thing I still can't get over is how nice all the contestants are to each other! My family swears it's just video editing, but I like to think that the Brits just aren't total competitive a-holes like Americans are.
Burn After Reading - Classic Coen brothers. (Shawn and I saw this when it first came out, but he didn't remember it, so I happily watched it again.) George Clooney, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand... if the directors and the cast aren't enough to suck you in, then I don't really know what else to tell you.
I Don't Feel At Home in This World Anymore - This falls into the category of dark comedy crime thriller. The main character is fed up with the general selfish attitude of humans and when her home gets broken into, she enlists the help of her neighbor to find the culprits herself. Then shit gets crazy! We really enjoyed this one.
Waffle Street - Based on the true story of a wall street guy who loses his job and starts serving tables at a local waffle house chain, with the intention of one day owning his own franchise location. Really heartwarming story, and I love the take-away at the end. You'll have to watch it to know what I mean though!
Schitt's Creek - This was recommended to me on my last Netflix post; I remember seeing trailers when this first came out, and I'm so happy it's on Netflix because I really wanted to see it! A wealthy family loses everything they own and are forced to move to a podunk town that they bought years prior as a joke. Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara are hilarious, as usual. Definitely worth a watch if you're looking for a good laugh.
