Despite the heavy resolutions we all seem to make, every day that we wake up in this quarantine is another day of lazing around, hoping to cook something lavish but afraid of running out of groceries and losing any remnant motivation of exercising. So why not give in to your urges, the basic desire of every human being, something carnal and lingering in all of us.
That’s right, lying in the bed…and binge-watching Netflix, wait, what did you think?
And to satisfy your, uh, needs, we present the lists of upcoming Netflix shows guaranteed to keep your company in the coming week.
1. Sunderland ‘Til I Die: April 1
A treat for every sports fan, Sunderland ‘til I die, is a sports documentary documenting the events around English football club Sunderland A.F.C. during their 2017–18 season which saw them relegated from the EFL Championship that is going to release its second season on Netflix on April 1. With an IMDB rating of 8.2, season one of the show was a huge hit, highlighting the love and passion of Sunderland residents for their football (Soccer, for fellow Americans).
The season 1 proved to be a complete package with drama, business, and heartbreak and let’s not forget the fit soccer players roaming around the screen; I mean that’s something you can’t seem to get enough of. Season 2 is all set to be a banger too with impending disasters, new management for the team and the team are all set to reinvent themselves in their 2018-2019 season.
To those who can’t go out and play and have exhausted all matches’ highlights, watch out for this one.
2. Nailed it: April 1
Girls and guys (we don’t stereotype here), times of the old school cookery shows are over, as Nailed it, a series of bake-off competitions in the style of reality television, where three amateur bakers compete to replicate complicated cakes and confectionery in order to win a $10,000 cash prize and a “nailed it” trophy is airing its 4th season on Netflix on April 1.
P. S, I kind of like the concept of a ‘nailed it’ trophy, can you think of other…stuff it can be given for, hmm!
Anyway, back to our topic, this show is all about fun and definitely won’t make you feel too bad about your cookery as all the contestants are just like us, and with their barely their knowledge of the kitchen trying to imitate many masterpieces. With an IMDB rating of 7.4, prep for its new season, and by that I mean load up sugar to satiate your cravings, because, in the words of IMDB itself, the show is ‘part reality contest, part hot mess’.
3. Money Heist: April 3
What’s better than to pull up the blankets to your chin, munching on popcorn and be completely engrossed in a thriller with amazing actors and a mind-blowing plot! That’s the dream, isn’t it?
If so, then look no further than Money Heist, a Spanish television show with an 8.4 rating on IMDB and releasing its 4th season on April 3, the show is famed for its action-packed and mysterious episodes. It revolves around a group of unique robbers assault the Factory of Moneda and Timbre to carry out the most perfect robbery in the history of Spain and take home 2.4 billion euros. Sounds cool, right? It looks that way too with the brilliant performance of Ursula Corbero, Alvaro Morte and many more acclaimed actors.
I suggest binge-watch the first three seasons so that on April 3 you are all set to catch up with the first episode of this crime and drama-filled series.
4. Coffee and Kareem: April 3
What happens when you don’t support your friends, siblings’ or in this case mother’s relationship? Maybe you guys talk it out, spend more time together or perhaps throw a tantrum; not our “sweet” 12-year-old who hires criminal fugitives to scare away her mom’s boyfriend.
I don’t support this at any cost, but, you go girl!
In a fun-filled movie to be released on April 3 on Netflix, Ed Helms, Terrence Little Gardenhigh, Betty Gilpin, RonReaco Lee, Andrew Bachelor, David Alan Grier, and Taraji P. Henson are seen playing quirky and entertaining roles.
So, let your resolutions take a back seat, make cheese popcorns, be lazy and watch Netflix. Pleasure yourself (pun intended), because that’s the whole point after all!
