Netflix Picks of the Week

I’ve been subscribed to Netflix for a year or so now and I’ve come to notice that Netflix shows are either a hit or a miss. I’m not gonna discuss the shows and movies that sucked (*ahem* Girl Boss and The Kissing Booth ✌) so here’s a list of 5 Netflix series and/or movies (Netflix originals or otherwise) that I liked for the week. (In no particular order, of course.)

1. Insatiable

Insatiable – A bullied teenager turns to beauty pageants as a way to exact her revenge, with the help of a disgraced coach who soon realizes he’s in over his head. (via Youtube).

I binge-watched Insatiable for less than a day while doing my chores. It’s hard to keep my attention these days so points for that Patty played by Debby Ryan! I guess some people may find the show offensive and politically incorrect. Nevertheless, it is still entertaining. Yes, the show is silly and weird but it was not that offensive.

Patty who just recently became skinny meets Bob Armstrong convincing her to join beauty pageants. Being a teenager with self-confidence issues, Patty encounters a LOT of blunders along the way. 

Should you watch it? If you’re looking to watch a dark comedy, yes. But watch it for Bob Barnard played by Ugly Betty star Christopher Gorham, Dixie (the resident b*tch), Choy (the asian cutie) and Brick (the hot boy toy). Basically, almost everyone. But not Patty because she is, literally, the worst. 

Season 1 (12 Episodes) of Insatiable is on Netflix.
