Say hello to your new Netflix obsession
We're not going to mention the C-word but if you're staying in more right now, isolate yourself with the Netflix remote and watch these corkers pronto.
There’s sooo much brilliant TV around at the moment and a huge proportion of it comes courtesy of Netflix. (Can you remember life before Netflix? No, us neither). We don’t have a watercooler at Muddy HQ (well, we do but we tend to call it ‘the tap’), however, if we did these are the must-see shows we’d be enthusiastically discussing around it.
If you are a sporty type, watch… Cheer
Must admit I’ve always hated the idea of cheerleading: the girls relegated to the sideline, looking cute, while the boys do serious business of sport? Yuck. Well, how wrong was I – this incredible documentary series follows America’s most accomplished college cheerleading squad. There’s a mix of boys and girls on the team, it’s a competitive sport in its own right and they are astonishingly focused athletes, despite many coming from challenging backgrounds. If you’ve got a sporty child, it’s an inspiring one to watch together – my gymnast daughter and I can’t get enough right now.
If you… are over Love Island, watch… Love Is Blind
One Muddy staffer who shall rename nameless nailed all 10 episodes of this in one weekend – it’s that addictive. It’s an American dating show where participants aren’t allowed to clap eyes on their potential partner – instead, they chat and build a rapport while separated by a screen. And then they get engaged… before they’ve even met face-to-face. Will anyone go through with the wedding? Will people literally do anything to get on telly? Yes, it’s nuts, no we can’t stop watching.
If you love a thriller, watch… The Stranger
Richard Armitage (who you might remember as smouldering MI5 agent Lucas North in Spooks) plays a dad who’s got it all – a loving wife, two lovely sons and an idyllic family life. Everything changes, however, when a mysterious stranger in a bar tells him a secret about his wife. This compelling 8-part British adaptation of Harlan Coben’s novel reveals a dark conspiracy at work. Two Muddy staffers have already been sucked in, with more due to follow in the coming weeks.
