We are all in on this whole winter thing which means we’ve been cozied up inside catching up on all the latest and greatest on our favorite networks. We’ve been watching some great documentaries, series and movies – and I just have to share our recent favorites, because honestly, they’re just TOO good and I’ve been obsessing!
American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Who: Darren Criss has won so many awards already for his role as the chilling Andrew Cunanan – his role alone makes these series unforgettable.
Where: Netflix is now streaming! Originally on FX.
Why: As I mentioned, Darren Criss knocks it out of the park with his acting, layer on a pop-culture icon, amazing 80’s music and cinematography and this series is interesting, nail biting and simply stunning from start to finish. Plus you’ll be googling to get a glimpse of the real news events. We’re watching this for the second time, yup, it’s that good.
Who: Penn Badgley anyone? For all you Gossip Girl fans, Penn is back to his quiet book worm shelf – but raised to a whole new level of creep.
Where: This is a Netflix original.
Why: Shay Mitchell is also in this series, so it’s the perfect collide of Gossip Girl and PLL. What I loved most about this series is that you are rooting for the bad guy and his crazy toxic relationship – while also rooting against him. You don’t know who is going to live or die until the very end, and boy will it drive you crazy! Annddd make you want to make your social feeds private.
Who: Ja Rule
Where: Netflix original documentary – HULU also has their own documentary on this music festival fiasco of 2016.
Why: B and I always love a good relevant documentary, but what I was surprised to learn even more was how false marketing and some a-list models, played such a role into making this whole event that eventually blew up – meaning you can have an awesome marketing strategy without having anything tangible to market.
Who: Connie Britton!
Why: Based on the popular podcast and true story, this scripted series on Bravo brings the romantic drama to life. The premises is about a successful business woman/mother, who falls for bad boy John – who just so happens to be a sociopath, thief and murder. This is easy to binge in a weekend. If you’ve already watched and can’t get enough there is a documentary with the actual Debra Newell on Oxygen that is on our list!
In our queue/also watching: True Detective Season 3, Vanderpump Rules, 90 Day Fiance, Dirty John Documentary on Oxygen Network.
