The ‘Beast from the East’ is on its way as I write, so I am guessing I may get to watch a lot more Netflix in the coming days than I would normally get to!
Hopefully by the time we start March properly the snow will have thawed, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a whole heap of gems to sink your teeth into! This month there is definitely a wonderful vibe of celebrating women on Netflix, with ladies taking centre stage. International woman’s day is 8 March BTW!
I’m super excited about series 2 of Jessica Jones! For me, her show has been the strongest of all the Defenders and series 1 was superb. I went into it not expecting to get hooked, but I totally did. Series 2 hits on 8th March and every episode in the new series was directed by a woman too!
And can I just say how amazing Altered Carbon was? Okay Joel Kinnaman and his incredible physique may have played a part in my love of the show, but apart from ogling, it was a superb production well worth checking out if you haven’t had a chance to yet.
Let me know in the comments below what you’re planning to binge on and in the meantime, here’s what I’m looking forward to watching this month.
