TV, Netflix, Amazon and... - part 2 -

The Nanny

Plot:
Jewish-American Fran Fine turns up on the doorstep of British Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield to sell cosmetics after having been both dumped and fired by her boyfriend and employer Danny Imperialli. Instead, she finds herself the nanny of Maxwell's three children: Maggie, Brighton, and Grace. Maxwell Sheffield is unhappy about it at first, but Fran turns out to be just what he and his family needed.

My opinion:
The classic. I don't think that there is any other TV show that I watched as often as The Nanny. My mum used to watch it when I was a child and little Sani always sat by her side and enjoyed the show. I'm pretty sure I'll watch it even when I'm old and grey as Grandma Yetta. This show never fails to put me in a good mood, it will never lose it's charm and sense of humour.

Scrubs

Plot:
Fresh out of medical school, new doctors John Dorian, his best friend Christopher Turk, and Elliot Reid start their internship at Sacred Heart Hospital. There, they meet the harsh Chief of Medicine Dr. Bob Kelso, J.D.'s reluctant mentor Dr. Perry Cox, nurse Carla Espinosa, and the deceitful and prankish Janitor. Also at the hospital are the wide range of personalities of Sacred Heart's staff. The new interns struggle to find confidence, love, and friendship through their first year, but by the end they seem to have found their footing.

My opinion:Another TV show I've watched endless times. It all started in 5th grade, I guess, when my brother would watch it ever day after school. Little me joined him, of course, and became just as obsessed. Seriously, Scrubs is one of the funniest shows ever. And it has J.D., the genderbend version of me. I never related more to a character on a TV show. It also has the best bromance in TV history and I aspire to have a friendship like J.D.'s and Turk's. But Scrubs is not only funny, it can also be really deep and sometimes devastating. It deals with death, loss, illness, life, relationships. It's so much more than just a sitcom.

Little Britain

Plot:
Matt Lucas and David Walliams, the creators of this character-comedy sketch show, delight in all that is mad, bad, quirky and generally bonkers about the people and places of Britain.

My opinion:You love it or you hate it. I love it. I don't know how it is in other places, but many people I know don't understand British humour. Little Britain is blunt, absurd and often pervert, but damn, why does everything has to be politically correct? It's hilarious and that's all that matters.

One Day at a Time

Plot:
This comedy series is based on a sitcom of the same name that ran from 1975 to 1984, and follows the life of a Cuban-American family. Penelope is a nurse in the Army dealing with depression and anxiety after returning from service; Schneider is Penelope's best friend, her landlord and a womanizer; Elena is Penelope's teenage daughter, who's dealing with personal issues that might affect her relationship with her family; Alex is Penelope's son, who's trying to be popular at school; Lydia  is Penelope's very traditional Cuban mother. In Season 1, the family go through changes and difficult times, and deal with issues such as PTSD, depression and relationship drama.

My opinion:Guys. This Show. I'd say it's the best sitcom that came out since the 8th season of Scrubs ended. I never binge watch sitcoms but this one is the big exception. Tell me any other sitcom that tackles serious issues like mental illness, LGBTQ topics, sexism, feminism, immigration, racism and more.
Representation matters and that's why One Day at a Time is so important today. But despite these heavy topics, it's still a delight to watch. I can't wait for the 3rd season. To anyone who hasn't Netflix yet, this show is the reason to get it.

RuPaul's Drag Race

Plot:
Join RuPaul, the most famous drag queen in the world, as the host, mentor and inspiration on RuPaul's Drag Race, the ultimate in drag queen competitions. Playing a dual role, RuPaul reigns supreme in all judging and eliminations, while RuPaul, the man, helps guide the contestants as they prepare for each challenge. Contestants include the nation's most outrageous, cutting-edge, talented and stunningly gorgeous drag queens all fighting for the title (and tiara) as top drag queen of the land.

My opinion:Another gem I found on Netflix. I'm really not into casting shows or reality shows in general but it's about DRAG QUEENS so how could I say no. My favourite queen is Sasha Velour. ♥

Quote of the Day: "And remember, if you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?" -RuPaul
