    Ive just finished the worst witch lol - I know is childish but reminds me of my childhood lol 
    Oh my GOD I used to watch that all the time @Jellyelephant but I'd totally forgotten about it until now. Serious nostalgia.

    @Shaunie I watched the first season of The Sinner and loved it! Haven't started season 2 yet though - have you?

    I am watching Brooklyn 99 at the moment - really funny! 
    Also, Brooklyn 99 is one of the best things to ever come out of TV. It's SO good. What series are you on @coc0mac?

    I've finally caved to peer pressure and started watching Game of Thrones. Loving how political it is so far, but I'm only on episode 4 of season 1.

    I am watching Brooklyn 99 and impractical jokers mostly but I think I am going to start “quicksand” next as it looks good and my sister recommended it to me! 
    The sun will rise and we will try again

    Recently there was a new episode of Riverdale.

    Love Riverdale @Kasa2103 great choice! 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Thanks. I have never actually watched it. How inappropriate is it for a 13 year old?

    Hey @Kasa2103 you might be a bit young for it. There's a few violent scenes which aren't very nice to watch. Are you watching anything good on Netflix at the moment?

    Thanks for letting me know. I will be sure to delay watching it for a little while. I am not sure if they are both on Netflix but Coco (get tissues whilst watching) and Sing (at first I was moaning on music on Friday when we watched it because we all wanted to watch Mamma Mia but then it was actually quite funny.)

    Those sound great @Kasa2103 I'll have to check them out :) 

    I've just started watching the series Dirty John on Netflix. It's based on a true story and it's really good so far!

    Dirty John is next on my to watch list! 

    I watched the Unicorn Store a few weeks ago.  Its Brie Larson's new movie on Netflix. 
    Honestly, I wasn't too keen on it at first, because it looks kind of silly, but it was the best 2 hours ever!  
    Unicorn store just has so many relatable moments in it, plus its genuinely hilarious and so uplifting.

    I've been watching a dark series recently called the OA. Its split into 2 parts with 8 episode each series. 
    Series one is about a girl who arrives home after being away for 7 years. And she retails her story to people. 
    Series two is based on the after effect of the people who are told the story. It's a weird series. 
    It does come with an 15 rating so the content isnt all rainbows and unicorns it is a powerful series. 
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    I've watched this!  Then for some reason half way through watching the series I was watching the one episode of the whole doctumenty where basically says everything in it and yeah i don’t know how I didn't know it was the documentary I clicked on rather than catching up with the series I was on. Must of been like half there, half somewhere else lol. But yeah that ruined that for me. So def check you're not watching documentary before watching lol

    Not Netflix, but Good Omens on Prime is one of the best things I've seen in ages. Adapted from a Terry Pratchett story, and has an amazing cast - Michael Sheen, John Hamm, Jack Whitehall, David Tennant. Pretty sure Francis McDorman is in it too, at one point.

    For anyone that's into Jack the Ripper and historical crime, the whole series of Whitechapel is currently on Netflix. It's my favourite show.

    The Hate You Give- contains some bad stuff but is about a 12.
    Mamma Mia- PG12
    Mamma Mia Here We Go Again- PG12
    Long Walk To Freedom (quite sad, gory and scary though.) 12

    Not Netflix but on BBC iplayer. There's a program called "teen taxis"   And it's where teens are sitting in the car with their parents and just driving and they speak about random stuff. But its interesting their convos and they  have spoke about things like Mental health sometimes.

    This actually sounds pretty cool @Shaunie. It's interesting how people-watching has really found a place in TV over the last few years, with Gogglebox as well. I'd be interested to see what people talk about.

    The Sinner on netflix, so good.

    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
