So recently my family has jumped on the entertainment bandwagon and got an account with Netflix. I think it’s been one of the best things to happen to me since…sliced bread (I hope someone laughed at this corny joke). I hate admitting it, but I’m such a TV junkie – yes I am that person who still keeps up with Glee and The Office and Parks and Recreation, and more. I catch myself getting excited when I hear a new season is coming back (a.k.a. the summer season of Pretty Little Liars is June 5th for any fans out there) and then I quickly don’t say it out loud so people don’t judge me on how obsessed I am with television shows. But back to the original point of the post…NETFLIX. Since I’ve gotten this incredible creation, I’ve wasted my time watching Breaking Bad and scary movies instead of studying for AP tests and finals..admit it, you guys have done the same.
Here are the television series and movies that I have seen through Netflix…
This is my absolute FAVORITE show from Netflix. My sister has seen all of the seasons and has been pushing me to watch it until I finally did – I should have listened to her earlier. This show stars the dad from Malcolm In The Middle, Bryan Cranston, who won the 2010 Emmy Award for “outstanding lead in actor in a drama series.” From IMDB.com, they summarize this thriller’s plot…
Informed he has terminal cancer, an underachieving chemistry genius turned high school chemistry teacher turns to using his expertise in chemistry to provide a legacy for his family… by producing the world’s highest quality crystal meth.
I am a sucker for drug shows and books (as sad as that is) such as Intervention and the series Weeds, so this show was just my cup of tea. I would seriously recommend this show to anyone though, not only with the entertaining plot line, but with the amazing acting in it.
So of my closest friends recommended that I started watching this show, and thank goodness that I listened to him. I’ve only seen the first season and can’t wait to watch the second one (I need to finish before the May 29th third season premiere). This show is about three best friends who live together, work together, and party together, in a nut shell. Sounds pretty boring, right? WRONG. It’s freaking hysterical. That’s really all I can describe it as…funny as hell. Here’s a trailer for all of those who want their lives to be changed.
THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE
I’m sure everyone has heard of this infamous movie due to it’s disgusting and twisted plot line, but for those of you that live under a rock, IMDB.com describes it as…
A mad scientist kidnaps and mutilates a trio of tourists in order to reassemble them into a new “pet”– a human centipede, created by stitching their mouths to each others’ rectums.
I really don’t know how I feel about this movie (especially because there is a sequel with even a bigger “human centipede”). It’s very very very very very disturbing and made me feel uncomfortable throughout the whole movie, but I still couldn’t stop watching it. I’m not sure I would recommend this to anyone, but I’m kind of glad that I got to say that I’ve seen it. If you guys can handle this gore then you should watch it, but it’s definitely not for the faint of stomach.
So even if you don’t like any of the three movies/shows that I would recommend, I would still recommend getting a Netflix account because there are soooo many options to choose from and it can totally help you on procrastination.
