In this week’s blog we’re going to be highlighting what not to be miss on Netflix in 2019!

Conversation with a killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes

Who doesn’t love a crime related documentary series? The Ted Bundy Tapes is a genuinely terrifying series about a serial killer that wreaked havoc in America in the mid 1970s. The series is based around interviews conducted with the killer whilst he was on death row. It’s recommended that you don’t watch alone. This series would also help to set you up for the upcoming film “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” where Ted Bundy is portrayed by Zac Efron. The film has come under fire for the glamorisation of the killer.

 

Sex Education

Sex Education is a Netflix Original series based around the sexual activity of British teens in their late adolescence. You follow the story of Otis (the son of a sex therapist) who attempts to enjoy his Sixth Form experience, but this is plunged into a spin when the occupation of his Mother is shared with the school. Instead of hiding from his ‘heritage’, Otis attempts to use it to his advantage with the help of a new friend. This series screams nostalgia and if you’re comfortable with sexual related content then you’ll have a good laugh whilst also letting it pull on a few heart strings.

 

Black Mirror

The British science fiction anthology series created by Charlie Brooker is arguably one of the most talked about shows ever to appear on Netflix. It returned to Netflix for a fourth series at the end of 2017 and it has a lot of people hooked. An anthology series is when a set of stories are presented with different characters in each episode. Each episode is different, but it follows a trend of examining modern day society with a particular look at the complications of new technologies. Black Mirror is not for the fainthearted but if you can handle the dark concepts, it is a must watch. At the end of 2018 we were introduced to Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
