Staff Netflix: What we’re watching

Get to know the Newswire editorial staff with our current favorite shows


Ricky Gervais is hysterical. If you didn’t know, he created the original UK version of The Office with fellow funnyman Stephen Merchant. The two of them came together again to create another criminally underrated British show: Extras. It’s got ridiculous celebrity cameos and perfect cringe humor. I’d recommend it to anyone, especially since there are only two short seasons.

Chef’s Table

I’m not a chef, not even close, but this show is incredibly captivating. The world-renowned chefs showcased in this Netflix original are truly artists. The show is a docuseries and takes you around the world, showing the crème de la crème of international cuisine. The only downside? You will want to eat immediately after starting the show.

Bojack Horseman

Bojack Horseman is one of the best shows I have ever seen. It is an incredibly heartfelt show filled with emotion that hits hard and tugs at every single string in my heart. Never before have I seen an animated show deal with mental health and other issues in such a mature way.
