The OA // Worth Watching?

I tend to mix between books and TV series quite often and after reading several books I decided it was time to start watching something new. So as I do, I headed to Netflix and seen that they had added some new shows and movies and among all the options I came across The OA remembering that so many people had been talking about it on Twitter I made the choice to give it a go. It’s newly released with only 1 series and 8 1 hour episodes.


Prairie Johnson had been missing for 7 years until she was spotted jumping off a bridge. Despite having been blind due to an accident as a child she could see. Prairie now goes by ‘The OA’ instead of her adoptive name and refuses to share any information from her disappearance. In hopes to save others like her she assembles a team of 5 to help her find others who have been experiencing the same situation as her. 


So is it worth watching? definitely! I was 12 minutes into the first episode and totally hooked. You think, how is it possible to be to into a show only 12 minutes in? Well, it’s different. Totally different to any other show I’ve ever seen. The OA’s story is like no other and is totally unique which made me even more interested in the rest of her story. Throughout series one you met new characters who bring the story to life and allow you to understand more about the situation. One specific character (a scientist, I won’t spoil it!) really interested me the most as he was someone who could definitely exist in this world. An utter nut job, crazy weird guy.

I think this show is brilliant and I can’t wait for season 2! You guys should definitely watch it and let me know what you think. You’ll definitely like this show if you’ve watched Stranger Things.

The Crown // Is It Worth Watching?

The Crown was released as a Netflix original in November and I’ve finally caught up on the hype to see whether it’s worth watching. 

I love history and I find the history of the royal family really interesting. The Crown follows Queen Elizabeth II from her wedding day to her coronation to become Queen and all the way to the present day. It looks at the family background, the responsibilities as a member of the royal family and the issues that Elizabeth II faces as Queen. The first season is based between 1947-1955 and will follow through six seasons and ending the series with viewing the Queen’s life in the present day. 

From the first episodes I was sucked in. I binge watched it and couldn’t help but be so interested in the background, history and lifestyle of the royal family. It made me admire the Queen more than I ever did before simply because the demands of being Queen are more extreme than what I ever could have imagined. I never really knew much about the royal family before watching this and it’s definitely encouraged me to learn more about them. I especially enjoyed the affair between Margret and Peter Townsend, it made me realise that they aren’t perfect at all. In fact they are most definitely as human as the rest of us. 

It’s a show that you have to carefully watch and concentrate on. It won’t be something that you can have on in the background whilst you do something else. It’s full of little details and a broad story. I can’t wait for the next season. I 100% think it’s worth watching if you have an interest in history and the lives of the royals.
