The 12 Shows Netflix Recommends You Watch While Quarantined

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 a list of “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 by Drake.  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 StrongWill ForteAndy Samberg, and Fred 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.
