Five Great Netflix Shows That Nobody Are Talking About

Friday nights are starting to look like it's me, the sofa, chips and some water. Jesus, it's been awhile since I had some soda. I might need to take a couple drinks.  Not really, just sounds good. I will get some Gold Peak Tea though. They really need to get me in a commercial. Anyways. 

Remember when Netflix first started to do original programming? That was a pretty big moment. Was only House of Cards and I was all for it. They added Lilyhammer didn't really put too much attention to that one. Got me back on board with Orange Is the New Black and I still have to watch the seasons of  Arrested Development.Simple times. Now Netflix has close to what, 126 shows. So many that some get overlooked. Imma tell you about some of the series and films. 

The Hateful Eight is nothing to do with Netflix originals. I was just watching it on Netflix and you should too. 

 Sam Gardner, an 18-year-old from Connecticut with autism, announces that he wants to start dating. His father, Doug, has struggled to connect with Sam and is thrilled when Sam approaches him for advice. When Sam wants to surprise his crush with chocolate-covered strawberries, Doug drives him to her house only to discover that Sam's crush is Julia, Sam's 26-year-old therapist. Doug quickly pulls Sam away and tells him to find a girlfriend his own age. Sam decides he needs a "practice girlfriend" and, with the help of his friends and family, begins to learn the social nuances of dating.

 The Fundamentals of Caring
 Ben is a retired writer. Needing a new job, he takes a six-week course to become a caregiver. He gets a job from an English woman named Elsa, a registered caregiver and an office manager at a bank, whose 18-year-old son Trevor suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Trevor is a sardonic, anxious boy with a fascination with American roadside attractions, and Ben suggests one day that they go to see some of them. Trevor initially refuses, and Elsa worries Ben is becoming too close to him, as Trevor's father left when he was diagnosed, only sending him letters throughout the years. 

The series is presented as a "down-to-earth look at dating", exploring male and female perspectives on romantic relationships through the characters Mickey and Gus, played by Jacobs and Rust respectively. Full review here / Five Minutes Into Love

 Grace and Frankie
 The series follows Grace, a retired cosmetics mogul, and Frankie, a hippie art teacher, whose husbands, Robert and Sol, are successful divorce lawyers in San Diego. Grace and Frankie's lives are turned upside down when Robert and Sol announce that they are in love with each other and are leaving their wives. Now, the women, who have never particularly liked each other, are forced to live together and learn to unite and cope with difficulties.

Ozark centers around Marty Byrde, his wife, a homemaker turned real estate agent Wendy Byrde.  Marty suddenly relocates the family from a Chicago suburb to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks after a money laundering scheme goes wrong, and he must pay off a debt to a Mexican drug lord. 

That should be enough to last you some time and I feel like part two already needs to be done. So enjoy and eat up. Cause Friday nights are for the sofa.
