The holidays are coming up, that and the exams. To help you through the misery of having too much time or de-stressing you after long hours of study, we present the third Netflix watchlist. Full of Netflix series, movies or documentaries.
#1 Rick and Morty
If you have been paying any attention to the internet in the last few years you would have probably noticed Rick and Morty. A show which was started in 2013 and just finished their third season. Getting an incredible 9.3 on IMDB it started one of the most fantastical animated series currently out there. The story is about the infinite adventures of Rick, a genius alcoholic and careless scientist, with his grandson Morty, a 14 year-old anxious boy who is not so smart, but always tries to lead his grandfather with his own moral compass. Together, they explore the infinite universes; causing mayhem and running into trouble. Shortly said, a show full of dark humor, satire and shock humor which happens to consist out of episodes of only 20 minutes. Making it ideal for short burst of fun.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you must have heard at least once about a serie starring the great Sherlock Holmes. This show, rated 9.2 on IMDB, is the BBC’s attempt to modernise the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. An Incredibly successful one if we might say, showing the craziness of Sherlock and showcasing the fact that Watson is a real veteran. It has to be reminded that this is not your casual short watch and has a small 15 episodes with a total of over 22 hours of screenplay keeping you on the edge of your seat every minute of the serie. With many twists and turns, crazy plot twists and actually modernising the story to a drug addict who keeps corpses in the fridge, this is one of the favorites of the team here.
#3 13 reasons why
You probably do not want to watch this serie if you are up for something light, because this serie has a message. This incredibly intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation will deeply affect viewers. It is about Hannah Baker, a girl who committed suicide, and Clay, the introverted boy who loved her. The catch is that she left 13 cassette tapes, on these tapes Hannah unfolds an emotional audio diary, detailing the thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Watch it if you want to learn what goes through the mind of a teenager which has seen the extremes in life.
#4 Shawshank redemption
Owh yeah, a classic has arisen on Netflix. This 1994 beauty has been critically acclaimed as the best movie of all time, proven by its 9.3 IMDB rating. The story, based on the original book written by Stephen King, portraits Andy Dufresne as he gets imprisoned for allegedly murdering his wife and her lover. The film portrays the man’s unique way of dealing with his new, torturous life in prison. Along the way he befriends a number of fellow prisoners, most notably a wise long-term inmate named Red (Morgan Freeman). Violence, friendship, luck, the dream to live a good life on a beach in Mexico and a satisfactory ending makes this the complete picture of a perfect movie.
#5 Chef’s table
Let’s be honest, every student loves food. This is where Chef’s table kicks in, making you incredibly jealous about food you will probably never eat. That is all because this serie visits the best chefs and restaurants in the world. With 4 seasons and a side show focussing entirely on French chef’s it has been an incredibly well received show. Showcasing rebellious chefs who only focus on making taco’s on a michelin star level or the number one chef in the world, it does not only focus on the food but also on the story behind the food. Telling the story of the chef, where he/she gets inspiration from, where the ingredients come from and so on. It is much more than your average cooking show and deserves a watch from every foodie.
