What I Watched in January 2021

I Am Not Okay With This; Netflix, 2020

A Netflix original series, which is created by Jonathan Entwistle and Christy Hall. The story revolves around a teenage girl named Sydney who struggles with the issues she is faced with at High School, dealing with complex issues with her home life and family, her budding sexuality and her mysterious superpowers which seem to just be awakening from deep within her.

Starring: Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant, and David Theune, amongst other cast members.

This show dropped on Netflix in February 2020, and although I have just got around to watching this, I thought it was good for a first series but I am gutted to hear Netflix won’t be renewing for a second series – as this was announced by Deadline online in August 2020.

However, this is a good show to binge on Netflix, and highly recommend if you have not watched already. I rate this show a 4-star rating!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Mrs Fletcher; Sky Comedy, 2019

A Sky Comedy/ HBO Comedy series, on a coming of age story based on the novel by Tom Perrotta exploring internet porn and social media on the view of Eve Fletcher; aka Mrs Fletcher, a supported living facility manager, a single mother, with a now empty nest due to her only son, Brendan, moving away to college.

Created by: Tom Perrotta (who also wrote the novel)

Starring: Kathryn Hahn, Jackson White, Owen Teague.

I binge watched this show, and found it funny, and would recommend giving this a watch, if you have watched Bad Moms 1 & 2, you will recognise Kathryn Hahn, as she is also starring in the new Marvel Series “WandaVision”. Her role in this show is fitting, as she has a lot of comedic roles, and this is no different. The TV series is great, and unfortunately it does not look like a series 2 is planned, as HBO have stated this show was a limited miniseries which came to a natural conclusion. However, if you have not watched this series, I give this a recommendation, and I rate this a 5-star rating review too.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Two brothers share their Friday Night Dinners at their parents home, every Friday Night, hence the title Friday Night Dinner, but something always goes wrong, and their neighbour Jim always makes an appearance somehow.

A British TV comedy series, on Channel 4 UK, which ended with series 6 in 2020.

Created by: Robert Popper

Starring: Tamsin Greig, Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal, Paul Ritter, and Mark Heap.

I discovered this TV series last year, before the final series aired and finished, and I enjoyed the show, and I have my favourite episodes, but I find this an easy watch when sorting other things out, or if you are struggling to focus much on a TV show, this is an easy watch for sure. It is available to stream up to series 5 on Netflix UK, but if you have a VPN you can access the UK Netflix through that, and enjoy! I give this show a 5-star rating, as I think it is the best of British Comedy!

Directed by: Al Campbell and Alice Mathias

Written by: Carlie Brooker, and Annabel Jones

Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Joe Keery, Tracy Ullman, Kumail Nanjiani.

A film which is on a comedic view on taking a look back at 2020 and the madness 2020 had on the world, with covid-19 and the madness in the world that followed.

Watching this was a great reminder into everything that happened since the start of 2020, which a lot of people (including myself) forgot happened, before covid-19 happened and post covid-19 too. Although it was reflected in a comedic perspective, it was insightful to be reminded of the complete madness which happened through 12 months of 2020. Available to stream now on Netflix worldwide.

I rate this film a 4-star rating.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Night Stalker; Netflix, 2021

This docu-series is on Netflix, which is about the search for a serial killer back in 1980s, which tells the true story on how one of the most notorious serial killers in American History was hunted, caught, and brought to justice for his unnecessary murders, rape, abduction, burglary, kidnapping and paedophilia.

I was suggested this to watch by a few people, including my parents and a few colleagues at work, so I watched the limited series, and found it insightful, and rather scary at how the serial killer who is named Richard Ramirez, had no remorse for any of his actions, and deeply believed in Satan.

I would give this another recommendation but I would suggest watching this with someone in your household, or close to you, as I do not recommend mixing with people at the moment with the current climate situation, as the images shown are rather graphic, and when the images are shown of the serial killer, its like he is staring into your soul which is not nice.

Ready to stream now on Netflix Worldwide.

I rate this a 4-star rating
