Five Masterpieces On Netflix For You To Watch

Football season is over. It's gone and if you like me, your team didn't even make the playoffs. So you already been over all this already. With football being gone, it leaves such a big space in the weekend.. Now it's nothing to do. Like at all. Too cold to leave the house and you can only take so many of the TV movies. I say this as I'm fully engaged in a Real Housewives Of Atlanta reruns. So Yeah, I need to head to Netflix myself. 

I put together five masterpieces that you need to watch. This is not so much of the ones that everybody knows (House Of Cards, Narcos, Breaking Bad, etc). This is more of something you might have seen and wasn't to sure about. I'm here to let you know they're great and you  should check them out. 

 Master Of None (TV Series) Trailer
 Master of None is an American comedy-drama television series, which was released for streaming on November 6, 2015 on Netflix. The series was created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, and stars Ansari in the lead role of Dev, a 30-year-old actor who attempts to make his way through life in New York City. The first season consists of 10 episodes. The show's title alludes to the figure of speech, "Jack of all trades, master of none"  and was originally suggested by Ansari. The series later incorporated a song of the same name by Beach House. Ansari says it took months to come up with the show's title and he and Yang did not ultimately agree on it until all of the episodes were completed. 

The fact that it took him months to come up with the title, matches his character in the show perfect. It's this one scene (No Spoilerwhere he (Dev) asks his friend Brian if he wants to get some tacos. His friend agrees and Dev takes to his phone to find the best place to get tacos. Hours later and several reviews later, they find a place. Only to reach the place and have it be closed. 

DOPE (Movie) Trailer
  DOPE does the story just right.  The movies protagonist is Malcolm Adekanbi. Malcolm  is a high school senior obsessed with 90's hip hop,  Even if he kinda has the culture of the 90's mixed up with the 80's.  He's a geek that's constantly pushed around by bigger kids at school. Malcolm and his friends all live in a part of Inglewood, California called "The Bottoms." Malcolm's ultimate dream is to go to Harvard but in a meeting with his counselor, Mr. Bailey, his dreams are dismissed. He really shits all over the kid. Fuck him for having a goal, huh?  Mr. Bailey calls Malcolm's desire to attend Harvard an arrogant one, and that his straight A's don't mean a thing.  You can read my full review of this one here, I told y'all about this one before it was on Netfilx. 

 Nurse Jackie (TV Show) Trailer 

I caught  this one after the show ended. This comes as a recommendation from Blaze.  The show starred Edie Falco as the title character Jackie Peyton, an emergency department nurse at All Saints' Hospital in New York City. For Jackie, "every day is a high wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses, and her own indiscretions."

F is For Family (TV Series) Trailer  

"Remember if anything bad happens to your sister just call me at work, then I will come home and put you through that fucking wall...have a good day princess" One of the on going things in the show is walls. Putting the kids (The boys) through them. I love. It was one time when the older one thought he had an answer to the notion that he could be put through a wall. Since they were outside "But dad there aren't any walls outside". He just knew he had him. Shook. "I will build a wall just so I can put you through it". Well, that rounds goes to the dad. Like all of the rounds I heard.

The Wood (Movie) Trailer 

This takes me back, way back, back into time. That was a Black Street reference btw. This was the movie when I was younger. I still watch it now. Never like my brother did. He had to be about 13 when he was hooked on it. Watched it about 100 times and that's not even exaggerating. He had it in a rotation with 'Friday' and 'Next Friday'.  I know that VHS is somewhere in the basement happy that DvD's and streaming is a thing now.
