‘This Is It’ is new this week on Netflix.


Travelers: Season 3 Netflix Original

I have to admit I’m late to the party with this title. From the persistent recommendation from friends, I just recently discovered what a great show Travelers is. This Netflix Original series gets a third season today and it is totally worth a watch. As someone who is really not a fan of sci-fi, I have to say I was hooked from the beginning. This new season finds Grant MacLaren and his team of highly-trained operatives from the future pushed to the limit and dealing with themes of loyalty, trust, death, and the ever-growing power of Artificial Intelligence.


ROMA Netflix Original

A title that is currently in theaters and has been getting a lot of buzz is ROMA. Already being called one of the best films of the year, ROMA is brought to us by from Academy Award-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men). Drawing upon his own childhood, Cuarón creates a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst the political turmoil of Mexico City in the 1970s.


The Innocent Man Netflix Original

This new docuseries has quite a twisted story to tell. The small town of Ada, Oklahoma has some deep secrets. In this new Original docuseries, we’re introduced to two unsolved crimes and the injustice that surrounds the wrongdoings. For a closer look at this series see my review. I think it is worth a binge.
