'Flix Fix Ep.1
This week we're making a little change to our usual schedule and rather than giving you low down on what we're listening to in store this week, or what we think of the latest releases, we're having a look at what we've spent the weekend watching.
We know everyone else loves a good Netflix binge just as much as we do, but if you're anything like us you're never sure what to watch next. So to avoid hours of mind-numbing scrolling we're hitting you with 3 of our much watch series for the week ahead.
If you'd like to see more about TV & films just let us know and we'll make it happen?
1. 'The End Of The F***ing World'
First up 'The End Of The F***ing World', following the journey of a young couple. James is a self-diagnosed psychopath desperate to kill his first person. And Alyssa is the girl he never thought he'd fall for. What sounds pretty mundane has become one our favourite series in recent months. Without giving too much away the plot is a pretty simple one, boy meets girl. But... both turn out to be complete nutters! Be prepared for witty one-liners, sarcasm in abundance and a good splash of violence.
Set aside an afternoon and you can easily blast through the series, there are only 8 episodes and they're all under half an hour. So if you don't like too big of a commitment this is the choice for you!
Here's one we've just started, 'Dark'. Set in a quiet German town where not much happens, but now events are starting to repeat themselves with terrible consequences. The name says it all, this is seriously dark if you're a fan of something a little grim this will be a much watch. Shot with a distinctive style, with beautifully bleak scenery, you won't just be impressed with the storyline but the cinematics. Don't worry even though this one's dubbed it's been done surprisingly well. And I wouldn't say that if I didn't mean it, I really can't stand that whole out of sync sound issue. I'm still working my way through the series and I'm already gripped, and I'm sure you will be too.
To take a break from the darkness, we've chosen 'Atypical'. A different look at high school life, through the eyes of an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum. And his mission to find a girlfriend and the troubles he encounters. It's exactly what it says on the tin, an abstract look at a typical teenagers life. We all felt it was an outstanding move to create a series which help the public understand a little more about the lives of those on the autism spectrum but all so the effect it has on friends and family, but with a lighthearted feel and some good laughs along the way. We'll let you be the judge, but we're looking forward to series 2 later this year!
