With all the data Netflix has on us, you'd THINK that their "recommendations" would be better . . . but usually, it's just a bunch of stuff that THEY want to boost the numbers on.
That's probably the case with this, too . . . but here it is anyway:
Netflix Tweeted all of us "really excellent shows" people should watch while quarantined. They're all their own originals . . . and not their most popular stuff like"Stranger Things","Locke & Key", and"The Witcher".
Instead, Netflix says they're, quote, "shows you might have missed the first time around."
Here's the list, in the order they put them:
1. "Styling Hollywood". . . It's a fashion reality show, starring celebrity stylist Jason Bolden and his husband, interior designer Adair Curtis.
2. "EastSiders". . . A dark comedy about a gay couple, as they struggle with infidelity and substance abuse.
3. "Top Boy". . . A British crime drama, which, oddly, is executive produced byDrake. It's about drugs and gangs, and it's sort of a British version of"The Wire".
4. "The Hookup Plan". . . A French comedy about a woman who dates a male escort to boost her confidence after having trouble getting over an ex.
5. "Bonding". . . A dark comedy about a female psychology student, who's moonlighting as a dominatrix.
6. "Medical Police". . . It's a spin-off of"Children's Hospital", and a parody of international spy thrillers.
7. "Ragnarok". . . It doesn't have anything to do with Thor. It's a Norwegian fantasy drama about a town, which has climate change issues due to factories.
8. "American Vandal". . . A mockumentary parody of true crime shows like"Making a Murderer". Netflix loved this one SO much that they canceled it after two seasons, infuriating its fans.
9. "Easy". . . It's a comedy-drama about people living in Chicago who are dealing with issues involving "love, relationships, and general knowledge." (???)
10. "I Think You Should Leave". . . A sketch comedy show with guest stars like:Cecily Strong,Will Forte,Andy Samberg, andFred Willard.
11. "The House of Flowers". . . It's a Mexican black comedy about a dysfunctional upper-class Mexican family that owns a prestigious flower shop.
12. "Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts". . . An all-ages animated show similar to"The Wizard of Oz", about a 13-year-old girl, who's searching for her father with her friends.
