I have been away for a week, and guess what I’ve been doing? I’ve got myself cozied up with a bunch of reader’s copies of brand new books, and a handful of shows on the beloved NETFLIX. Now, Netflix is one hot shot, isn’t it? Surely, it offers something for everyone. But, the catalogue is vast, and you’re most likely to end up watching something boring, and then quit after few minutes of watching. That’s why you’ll need a guide of TV shows or movies or documentaries. There is also a lot of hype going on, and surely, you’d have heard a lot of reviews about every show listed on the website. But most reviews are commercial, and not real time. Which is why, I am here to share my thoughts, recommendations, and a possible heads-up for what you can expect from Netflix in the forthcoming months of 2018. SO here we go!
