CRIME

DRAMA

While navigating the troubles waters of sex, romance, school and family, teen Archie and his gang become entangles in a dark Riverdale mystery. (Netflix.com)

Writer's review: This show is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. Not gonna lie, I mainly watch it for Cole Sprouse *swoon* and Victoria Lodge's outfits but unfortunately I'm not the biggest fan of the main character, Archie. He's quite a one dimensional and flat character but other aspects of the show such as the mystery and character developments help to distract viewers from the badly written Archie Andrews. 

After a teenage girl’s perplexing suicide, a classmate receives a series of tapes that unravel the mystery of her tragic choice. (Netflix.com)

Writer's review: Despite the backlash this show received, I think it did a good job in raising awareness of the effects of bullying and how to treat others with more compassion.  

A ruthless politician will stop at nothing to conquer Washington D.C, in this Emmy and Golden Globe-winning political drama. (Netflix.com)

COMEDY

A privileged New Yorker ends up in a women’s prison when a past crime catches up with her in this Emmy-winning series from the creator of “Weeds.” (Netflix.com)

Writer's review: I've been watching this show religiously for the past 4 years and I've enjoyed it as every season is based around a central theme ranging from religion to racism. From being the main character in the first few seasons, I feel that Piper Chapman has lost her connection with the viewers and the supporting characters are definitely the favourites. 

Rebellious and broke, Sophia stumbles into creating an online business and learns how to be the boss. A comedy inspired by the best-selling memoir. (Netflix.com)

Writer's review: To be 100% honest, I saw the first few episodes but just could not continue because the main character was exceptionally annoying. But don't be put off by my review, it has a solid rating of 7.2/10 on IMDB.   

Dev tries to jump-start his acting career and elevate his dating game with help from his eclectic group of friends in this Emmy-winning series. (Netflix.com)

ANIMATED SERIES

An animated series that follows the exploits of a super scientist and his not so bright grandson. (IMDB.com)

Follow the Murphy family back to the 1970s, when kids roamed wild, beer flowed freely and nothing came between a man and his TV. (Netflix.com)

SCI-FI

Writer's review: THE KIDS ARE AMAZING!!

This sci-fi anthology series explores a twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide. (Netflix.com)

From the creators of “The Matrix” and “Babylon 5” comes this tense series in which eight people can telepathically experience each other’s lives. (Netflix.com)

Ellen, a 20-year-old with anorexia nervosa, goes on a harrowing, sometimes funny journey of self-discovery at a group home run by an unusual doctor. (Netflix.com)

Writer's review: Again with any movie that discusses mental illness, backlash is inevitable. Personally I thought Lilly Collins did a good job portraying the effects of anorexia and exploring the illness without glorifying and glamorising it. 

When civil war tears his family apart, a young West African boy is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters and transform into a child soldier. (Netflix.com)
