This biographical adaptation of real-life murderer Ted Bundy tells too much and shows too little.

This post for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is spoiler-free.

It’s clever that Netflix opted to distribute Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019, directed by Joe Berlinger) on their streaming service because it certainly pairs well with their docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. But sidenote here: Berlinger was also the creator of the Netflix Ted Bundy docuseries, so I guess he already had a way in to have his movie be distributed by the streaming giant.

What/If is the kind of bad television show that you must watch till the end, even if most of it makes no sense.

What/If (2019, created by Mike Kelley) is an anthological series that is mysterious and batshit crazy. Part 1 stars Renée Zellweger as a renowned venture capitalist Anne Montgomery, who fiddles with the lives of a seemingly innocent young couple—Lisa (Jane Levy) and Sean (Blake Jenner)—who have no idea what they have just got themselves into.

This post for The Society Season 1 contains spoilers.

It took me about a week to finish watching all 10 episodes of The Society Season 1 (2019, created by Christopher Keyser) after it premiered on Netflix. The show’s hour-long episodes are extremely dramatised and definitely a hundred per cent fictional because there is no way that a bunch of teenagers would be the only humans left on Earth to fend for themselves.

Let me tell you that Dead to Me Season 1 (2019, created by Liz Feldman) is no fun to watch if you are already spoiled. The series follows Jennifer “Jen” Harding (Christina Applegate) who is grieving over her husband’s death after he was killed in a hit and run; she befriends a weird and eccentric lady named Judy Hale (Linda Cardellini) at a grief group, and they soon become besties.

This post for No Good Nick Part 1 is spoiler-free.

No Good Nick’s (2019, created by Keetgi Kogan and David H. Steinberg) trailer got me intrigued by the premise of the show. It follows Nicole “Nick” Patterson (Siena Agudong) who one day poses as a distant relative and appears at the Thompson family’s doorstep, but what the Thompsons don’t know is that Nick is up to no good and is trying to scam them of their money.
