My Netflix Picks!

Breaking Bad (Irish Netflix)

You all know this one - chemistry teacher Walter White is told he has lung cancer and can't pay for his treatment, so he teams up with local meth head Jesse Pink to cook the only the purest meth to leave money for his family when he's gone.

With an INCREDIBLY slow first season, it will be a slog to get into, but once you're on the BB gravy train there's no getting off - especially with Better Call Saul released this week.  

Jiro Dreams of Sushi (American Netflix)

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is about an elderly Japanese man who makes the best sushi in the world. The documentary follows the process of how he makes it, the people he's met in his 60+ years of the craft, and how his sons (one with his own sushi restaurant) are expected to live up to his huge reputation.

I LOVE this film, sushi is my favourite food and the simple way he prepares it next to the reactions of the critics who eat it are amazing. Beautifully filmed and totally interesting, this is definitely one for your list. 

The Inbetweeners (Irish Netflix)

Posh boy Will is taken from his comfy private school when his rich father leaves his beautiful mother, and is forced to attend public school where he meets Simon (the 'normal' one), Jay (the waffler) and Neil (the gobshite). Full of amazing insults, awkwardness too much to bear at times, and a total MILF, you're going to hate that you love this one. 

The Inbetweeners is the only TV series I've watched more than twice, there's just something so endearing about the jokes and the knuckle-biting, lemon-faced cringing that happens every episode. Did I mention Will's mother is attractive?

BoJack Horseman (Irish Netflix)

BoJack Horseman is a washed up sitcom star from the 90's (think Bill Cosby), still clinging onto his old fame. Drug addicted starlets, a still-famous dog douchebag version of Bojack and Aaron Paul as a couch-surfing bum, this show is pretty fantastic.

BoJack is hilarious, exactly what you imagine a, say... Kim Kardashian without Kanye would be. Awkward situations, accidental hate against war veterans and a totally great opening theme make this one my latest TV show to sink my time into.
