So, what’s on Netflix?
Confession Tapes has entered its second season. A second season of anger and a scream to change the justice system that we have in this country. Once again, we follow individual tales of people who have been convicted by their confessions, usually after hours of interrogation, lack of sleep and hunger. What this show does is shine a light on how we conduct our police investigations in this country and how justice more often than not fails when it comes to the haves and have-nots. For a long time, I only believed that people of color were railroaded into jail time, but this show has really opened my eyes up to the how our system needs fixing. Most often those who are poor and afraid are the ones who pay dearly with their life. This is a must see.
The Good Place
Now if you’re like me and grew up in the church this show is funny, but can really make your wheels spin. Although it is somewhat of a comedy it makes you think about our whole concept of heaven and hell. In short, several individuals die and go to “The Good Place”. Within an episode or two the whole idea of what the good place is and who it’s for is turned on its head. It’s a light watch for those who don’t want to think and a good watch for those who have a thirst to question what we all have been taught.
Santa Clarita Diet
Now if you aren’t someone who gets grossed out easily the Santa Clarita Diet is a hilarious watch. It follows a suburban couple who go through some changes when the wife suddenly contracts some weird eating disorder. But it’s funny and will have you rolling. I binge watched it so be mindful you might need some spare time. It stars drew Barrymore and Timothy Oliphant.
The Toys That Made Us
If you’re a nerd who loves collecting watch The Toys That Made Us. It really makes you understand the toy industry and how much we played with action figures. From He-man to Barbie, Ken to Star Trek and Star Wars there is an interesting history and back story to them all. You get to see how GI Joe went from a big doll into an action figure, or how Star Trek made several different enterprise ships and communicators before they landed on a winner. It’ll bring back good memories if you’re an 80’s baby.
