New year, new Netflix shows + GIVEAWAY

After being somewhat mia with my blogging over the past few months because of work commitments I thought it was about time I did a Netflix post. Before I crack on though I'd thought I'd share with you the gift that I received from Netflix for Christmas...

I've been watching something on Netflix literally everyday for the past few months so I have some great recommendations for you.

Making a Murderer - if you haven't watched or heard about Making a Murderer then where have you been??? A 10 part documentary which follows the story of Steven Avery from Manitowooc, Wisconson who served 18 years in prison for rape and attempted murder for which he was then exonerated for in 2003. As Steven starts to live life as a free man he is then arrested in 2005 and then charged in 2007 for the murder of a young woman. The documentary was filmed over the course of 10 years but spans over 2 decades. As a fan of anything crime scene, this had me gripped. The lack of evidence linking Steven to both crimes is astonishing and the end result extremely frustrating for anyone on Avery's side.

Scream - Taking reference from the old school Scream trilogy, Netflix have brought us a 10 episode season "What starts as a YouTube video going viral soon leads to problems for the teenagers of Lakewood and serves as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to the town's troubled past." (Imdb) I've only got onto episode 2 but what I've watched so far is pretty good. It is a lot like the film in which it gets its name,

Luther - A crime drama series on BBC starring Idris Elba as Luther, a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions. Currently Luther is on season 4 but Netflix has recently added the very first season, allowing people to start watching Luther from the beginning. I've never watched Luther before but after seeing it featured on Gogglebox a few weeks ago, it looks so good! So now that I've finished Making a Murderer, Luther is next on my list.

The Last Stand - the leader of a drug cartel escapes from a courthouse and is headed in the direction of Summerton county sheriff Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who's sleepy town is inexperienced in taking down a drug lord. High speed car stunts and a lot of gun action.
