Sense8 is BACK (& other NETFLIX Treats!)
Now I understand, we all can't be forking out money for NETFLIX accounts, but seriously, you've gotta get yourself a friend that can, and then beg them to let you have a username, because NETFLIX has got some shows!!
Firstly, let me just say that Iron Fist shall be mentioned no more, fortunately NETFLIX has some serious credit in the bank with 'The Get Down' and the 'Dear White People' (DWP) series and in 2017 they just can't help but keep on giving! Both 'The Get Down' and 'DWP' have new episodes this year, 'The Get Down' is on series 2 and 'DWP' is having its premier series.
If you love Hip-Hop, 'The Get Down' is like a homage to what many would consider one of Hip-Hop's grandfather's, Grand Master Flash and a love song to 80's Brooklyn and the Disco scene. While the 'DWP' series looks to continue with the characters from the film and hopefully will unpack more of their stories, while challenging race relations in the Trump era.
And if like me, you're a bit of a Japan-o-phile, then you'll be pleased to learn that BBC's 'Wild Japan' series is also available, taking you on a magical tour of Japan, sadly it's only three episodes though.
Dave Chappelle also made a much anticipated return to stand-up after nearly a decade, he has received some criticism from the Trans community, but I can’t say I wholly agree and I think you should watch it before condemning it to the bigotry bin.
That not enough for you? Well 'Sense 8' is back! I LOVE THIS SHOW!! And I'm so psyched it's back, I'm sad the original Van Dam has left, but I am rooting for his replacement! I'm telling you, NETFLIX is on a roll, I recently watched 'The Discovery' a fascinating film exploring themes of destiny, autonomy and the afterlife, an original idea, well performed by all the actors a great film all round!
Anyway, that's enough for you to be getting on with I think - except, lastly, watch 'Baby Cobra' by Ali Wong - I need more of her immediately NETFLIX!!
Oh yes, 'Defenders' is coming……!!
