I wouldn’t call myself a TV junkie (though others may disagree) – I just really love stories and their telling across different media. Storytelling is an intrinsic part of what it means to be human; even as we sleep, our minds continue to tell stories. Translation: I like TV shoes and I’m not sorry.
Having Netflix in Malta is a pretty big deal, mainly because people do seem to forget about us here on this patch of the Mediterranean (see Christa Boffa‘s post Welcome to Malta Netflix to find out more). From childhood gems like Pokemon and Goosebumps to countless documentaries and award-winning TV shows, Netflix (practically) has it all. Without further ado, here’s a quick glimpse at what’s on my list less than 3 days into my membership.
- Orange is the New Black
- Jessica Jones
- Jane the Virgin
- The IT Crowd
- Pokemon Indigo League
- Fresh Meat
- How to Get Away with Murder
- Penny Dreadful
- Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God
- The True Cost
- Atari: Game Over
- Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger
- Making a Murderer
- Henry VIII’s Palace
- We Are Legion
- Henry Ford
- Page One: Inside the New York Times
Now I must confess that I binge-watched and became emotionally invested in Making a Murderer. If you’ve been on Facebook at all over the past few weeks, you’ll have definitely seen something about this fascinating (and quite frankly upsetting) 10-part documentary. If questions of crime, justice, and wrongful imprisonment interest you at all, this is one to watch.
Do you have any Netflix suggestions for me to add to my list? Leave them in a comment below.
