And whoever created Netflix should be sanctified. I mean truly! This is the kind of thing that changed our way of watching series and films. But with the long list of programs available, it can be hard to choose. DO NOT WORRY, we've got you covered. Here is our TOP 5 (mainly young-adult programs).
1) A Series of Unfortunate Events
We are always kind of worried when such a masterpiece (which was an important part of our childhood) is turned into a series. And then we learn that one of the main characters will be embodied by Neil Patrick Harris, and it changes the game.
Comte Olaf is the type of evil character that we love to hate, and played by this actor it is even more tempting. So we decided to take a chance, finding ourselves watching the whole season in one day (yes we almost forgot to eat... almost).
A series of unfortunate events is the story of the Baudelaire children, who mysteriously became orphans. Welcomed (if we can say so) by a foreign uncle, cousin or whatever, they find themselves at the centre of a conflict based on their legacy. Twisted plot, musical scenes, you won’t be disappointed if you’re as crazy as we are.
It is one of our favourites, because it is based on a fantastic book saga which is now part of the American culture. With it, you sink into a universe, hidden among ours, where all the legends are true: vampires, werewolves, warlocks and demons. If you are a fantasy lover, this is for you. With really good power couples, and a sound track which will literally blow your mind, you will be stunned.
Let’s go and hunt some demons together, thus protecting the human kind from those menaces, let’s do this for our own sake, please!
If you are a fellow reader, this is not the first time we've talked about Riverdale, and for those of you who’ve never heard of it, it's time to catch up. Yes, we are lovely, don’t make us blush -lol-
A murder-based story in a small town full of secrets, some rivalries and over exciting Girl Power are the very core of Riverdale. You also have a fantastic set of abs, some sexy cheerleaders and songs that stay in your mind after the episode is over.
4) Sense 8
Sense 8 is quite easy to sum up: extremely sensorial sexual revolution. This is a stunning series with a complex story line, but also a fantastic acting cast made of people who embody the characters perfectly.
This is the story about a group of people from all over the world, who find themselves linked on a psychic level, allowing them to see what the others can see, to feel what the others feel. They are being hunt by an obscure organisation, which forces them to help each other. And we deeply want them to be safe.
5) Stranger Things
If you've completely missed the Stranger Things phenomenon, I must say it is unforgivable. Yes you heard it right, unforgivable. And you deserve to be punished (sorry about that we are still under 50 Shades Darker shock -laugh-)
More than a series, Stranger Things is already part of the American pop culture. It is by bringing the sci-fi atmosphere back, in a masterpiece kind of way, that it has succeeded in stealing our series-addict heart. Trust us with your life, log in Netflix, and binge watch it.
