Boredom Busters: What I’m Watching On Netflix

HK 2 (1)

I’m not going to lie, when I was younger I went through a few phases when it comes to TV and films. I will say though, since then my tastes have changed and I don’t get hooked on things like I used to. That being said, Netflix usually has a few things on there that I get absorbed into. I’m not talking about ‘The End Of The F***ing World’ because that’s just not my cup of tea! I’m talking about strange things that I wouldn’t have looked at if it wasn’t for the recommended sections.

  • Skin Wars: Fresh Paint was something that I didn’t expect to like but I watched Project Runway and RuPaul’s Drag Race when I was away so I thought I would give it a go. I really enjoyed how creative the contestants got with the paint and it was interesting to see how different everyone’s perception of art is. Give it a go, you never know until you try it!
  • Alien Deep with Dr Robert Ballard is a documentary which I found particularly interesting because you can see how much the team are invested in finding older and more unusual wreckages. Watching the doc, I was rooting for them to find what they were looking for and Dr Ballard did make some interesting points about life thousands of years ago.
  • The Pyramid Code was an unexpected find that was advertised after I watched a documentary about Rome, I have to be in a certain mood to watch documentaries and I just kind of binge watched  them. When I found this series, I was intrigued by the first one but then I swear that I blinked and I was on the last ep! It was just SO good.
  • Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father was one that I watched because I had just finished Fresh Meat. Jack’s character was amusing so I searched for other things that he was in, I hit on lucky and searched the day that his show was released on Netflix. I just enjoyed watching the way that he interacted with his dad and the contrast between the two of them.

Those are my top picks from Netflix right now but I’d love to hear what everyone else is watching. Sometimes I lose touch with Netflix but it was a life saver when I live in Middlesbrough!




  1. Ooohhh I haven’t heard of all of these, I like documentaries so will keep an eye out. Skin Wars sounds interesting too. I go through stages of Netflix, just haven’t had the time recent. I can’t just have on in the background, I like to sit and watch. Need to make more time to chill and have a binge xx

    1. My background show was The Real Ghostbusters. 😂 The storylines were ridiculous but it was great as a mindless watch. Xx
