Netflix Shows for New Years

I thought I'd throw it out there to see what people have been watching over the Christmas and New Years period. A bunch of new shows and movies were added to Netflix and I've been working my through a good number of them during the break. Here are some of my recommendations. What would be your suggestions? Warning there may be some spoilers.

1. Legend - Tom Hardy stars in this biopic as both Kray twins who ruled the London underworld in the 1960s. Full of drugs, violence and gambling it's an entertaining, albeit a little drawn out movie. Tom Hardy is bloody brilliant in his dual roles.

2. Vikings - Season 5 of the Norse raiders was added in December and they continue along their pillaging, exploring and murdering ways, though this time there's no Ragnar Lothbrok. 

3. Peaky Blinders - Season 4 was added in December and this time we see the Shelby brothers head to war with the New York mafia. Probably the most violent and death-filled of the seasons so far, with Tommy at his plotting best.

4. Sunderland Til I Die - Bit of a break from the murdering and violent shows I've already mentioned, this documentary follows English football side, Sunderland AFC through the 2017/18 season. It features footage with the players, coaches, management and supporters. Netflix originally intended to follow Sunderland's journey afer being relegated from the Premier League (Top tier) to the Championship (Second tier) and their attempt to rejoin the PL but by season's end the wheels have well and truly fallen off as they're relegated to League One (Third tier). Bit of a sobering look for Eels fans given it's where we'd be if the NRL had relegation/promotion.

5. Springsteen on Broadway - This is for the music fans. Bruce Springsteen has performed his one man show on Broadway for the past 12 months, spending 2.5 hours a night regaling audiences with the tale of his ascension from New Jersey nobody to Mr Born to Run. He talks about more than just his career but also about family, love, marriage and fatherhood. For Springsteen fans such as myself who couldn't afford a flight to New York to watch his show, this is a must watch.

6. Creed II - Okay, this ain't exactly Netflix territory but if you happen to still have it in a cinema near you then I highly suggest grabbing a ticket to the latest instalment of the Rocky saga. For a Rocky/Creed film, this really doesn't put boxing at its epicentre. Instead it's more of an exploration of fatherhood, family and legacy. It's also highly likely the last time we'll see Stallone in the role of Rocky Balboa. He plays a more minor role in this film with Michael B. Jordan's, Adonis Creed really taking centre stage. That being said, it has plenty of throwbacks to the original Rocky films given the re-appearance of one Ivan Drago.

  • Saw the latest installment of the Tom Cruise mission impossible series and it's an absolute must see movie. Not a fan of his previous mi movies but this latest was a pleasant surprise.

    Netflix for mine doesn't update regularly enough. Still weighing up whether to keep it,  but there's still enough content to keep interested. NFL docos, storm chasers, music docs ect  not a huge fan of Netflix originals

  • Also thought Legend was a cracker..

    The Revenant

    Glitch series 2 is out, havent got into it but enjoyed series 1. Nice to see an Aussie show on Netflix for a change

  • The Last kingdom,Ozark and Daredevil are the last 3 shows i've binged on Netflix.

  • Vikings is just about my all time favourite show. Don't know how you could possibly wait for it to be appear on Netlfix.

    I miss binging on television.

    I start watching Shameless. I think there are about six seasons, so I'll likely finish it in 2030.

    • I watch so many different series that I can binge through a bunch of different shows while Vikings comes back. Although SBS has the latest season online.

"DB has developed fine and he's become an international.
MM has come on fine he's represented NSW and has improved his defensive deficiencies since joining the Eels.
Developing players is one of the current coaches strengths."
