Most Anticipated


Away (Season 1)


I've been waiting for this series for a long time, and am so excited it's finally almost here. Away stars Hilary Swank as astronaut Emma Green, preparing to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars. Being a huge fan of not just science fiction, but the impact that technological advancement and space travel can have on people. Swank's portrayal of a mother choosing to pursue her dream, while reconciling the fact that she has to leave her husband and daughter to do so, definitely seems compelling.



As a huge fan of movies such as Gravity, Ad Astra, and Interstellar (one of my favorite films ever) this looks right up my alley. With some stellar science fiction elements and cliffhangers, Away definitely feels like the perfect bingeworthy series to get hooked on.



What We're Watching Now


Can’t wait for the new shows and movies to drop? Need something bingeworthy now? You've come to the right place.


Unsolved Mysteries


Yes, that Unsolved Mysteries. Some 20 odd years later, the classic series investigating mysteries, disappearances, and other phenomena is back on NETFLIX. If you're hooked on true crime podcasts, can't get enough conspiracy theories, or just enjoy a classic whodunit tale, Unsolved Mysteries is a must-watch. The first six episodes dropped on NETFLIX recently and investigate the gamut from mysterious disappearances to UFO encounters.



From original producers as well as the team behind the NETFLIX mega smash series Stranger Things, I knew going in that this was going to be great. Predictably, I was hooked from the moment I began the first episode. It's a perfect show for kicking back and getting wrapped up in these compelling mysteries.
