Netflix Pick Winter 2017

As many great Starks have said, “Winter is coming.” Now is the perfect time to catch up on some shows and to find a few new favorites. Now sit back, pop some popcorn, pour some hot cocoa, and stream this list of shows that are currently on Netflix.

If you like a twisted murder mystery…


Twin Peaks

This early 90s murder mystery follows the death of a young woman with an investigation led by an FBI agent. Where this show earns its brownie points at is with the town of Twin Peaks itself. It’s a campy, uncanny, and weird town, and everything is just a little off.


If you’re a little monster…

Gaga: Five Foot Two

Since the release of Lady Gaga’s album Joanne last year, Gaga hasn’t stopped. She headlined the Super Bowl, has been on a world tour, and now has just released a documentary. The movie takes place between the early stages of her developing the new album to this year’s halftime show. Five Foot Two shows the side of Gaga that has never been seen before.


If you have been looking for true crime style documentaries and poop humor…

American Vandal

As seen in last month’s favorites, American Vandal has been my favorite new show of the year. It’s incredibly smart for a plot so dumb. Though it’s a fictional story, its structure is comparable to true crime shows such as Making a Murderer.


If you just need a gut hurting laugh…


Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King

Senior correspondent on The Daily Show, Hasan Minhaj Netflix’s comedy special, Homecoming King, illustrates Minhaj’s life as an Indian American. It highlights the hardships he faced and how they made him the man he is today.


If you’re a fan of Adidas shoes and ocean life…

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

A semi-parody of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the Life Aquatic tells the story of an oceanographer out for revenge against a shark who killed his best friend. The titled character, played by Bill Murray, is famous for wearing his red stocking cap and custom Adidas.


If you are a fan of Downton Abbey…

The Crown

As a middle-class American, the British upper class society is always interesting to me. Each season covers roughly about ten years of Queen Elizabeth’s life, and the first season was phenomenal. If you wait until December 8th, the second reason will be streaming.


If you hate the cold…

The Hateful Eight

This one goes out to all the people who hate the cold. Eight strangers exchange stories in a rest stop in a middle of a blizzard. What follows is a compelling film about these people and how they are all connected.


If you want to learn more about the past….

The Seventies

The second installment of the CNN documentary miniseries about the past four decades, the Seventies, focuses on significant events taking place from 1970-1979. Instead of being broken down by years, each of the nine episodes is divided based on topics.


If you never watched the Death Note Anime….

Death Note: The Movie

One common opinion online and from friends is that compared to the anime the movie is garbage. Just for this post, I watched it, and it’s still a fun flick. Death Note is about a boy who is given a book that whoever’s name is written in it dies.


If you’re a fan of Robert Rodriguez…


Dusk Till Dawn The Series

Robert Rodriguez is known for two things: over the top/ terrible CGI children film & gory action flicks. As the semi-sequel/ retelling of his cult film called Dusk Till Dawn, the supernatural horror film follows a similar premise as the movie. Though it still follows the two brothers who end up in a vampire strip club, it switches back and forth between them, the FBI, and a drug cartel.
