Netflix Shows

So recently I’ve been watching every Netflix crime show or documentary I can find! Here’s a list of my top 3 favorites but I could include so many more:

 

  1. Team Foxcatcher – really good documentary about a billionaire who killed an Olympic gold medalist in wresting. It’s an interesting and sad story about a man who just wanted friends but had no social skills and did a horrible thing.
  2. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile –  I never knew Zac Efron had this much acting skills but he played Ted Bundy great! Really crazy story about something that happened just before my time but I always heard references to ‘Ted Bundy’ and now I know why he became such a household name. Horrible guy and horrible crimes but an interesting story about how the country was captivated by the story.
  3. The People vs. O.J. Simpson – What a great one! Maybe this should be my first favorite but this is about THE trial of the century. It has all the makings of a good story: fame, fortune, a beloved athlete that fell from grace, and the behind closed doors scandals and affairs. It was a great TV series that had wonderful actors that really gave a good insight into how the attorneys handled the ins and outs and ups and downs of a trial that lasted over a year.

 

What have been y’all’s favorite shows on Netflix (crime related or not)? Did y’all get really hooked on something and you just haven’t been able to put it down?

Let me know in the comments!

  1. Here lately I’ve been really into The Originals – which is a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries. I’m fixing to start watching some killer documentaries because I’m going to start writing a book soon.

  2. The Keepers was a very captivating series for me; it not only told the story of the cold case of a murdered nun, it also delved into allegations of abuse conducted by priests working at the girls’ school where said nun was a teacher and the diocese’s attempt to cover it up (this took place in Baltimore).

    Sisters (an Australian dramedy series) was funny, quirky, and told an excellent story…I only wish they had made a second season!

    Most recently, I’ve been watching an original series on there called “Empire Games”, which profiles different civilizations of the ancient world. And also, anything from Monty Python or Ken Burns has immediately gotten an “Add to My List” from me.

      1. No, it’s about a woman who thought she was an only child, and then it turns out her dying father (a retired fertility doctor) had secretly replaced many of his patients’ semen samples with his own and as a result fathered over 40 children. As it happens, only two of the resulting patients’ children were girls, and the woman ends up gaining two (half) sisters.
