22/4: Ultimate Netflix Binges
1. The Goop Lab With Gwyneth Paltrow
Ever wondered the thought process behind some of Gwyneth Paltrow's suggestions on her lifestyle blog, Goop? Well, what began as a newsletter with recipes and fashion advice has since evolved into a multi-million-dollar wellness empire that spans books, a clothing line, beauty products, alternative medicine, health summits, a celebrity cruise, and now, a television show.
We get to go behind-the-scenes on psychedelics, energy work and other challenging wellness topics.
However, as quoted from the website itself, "The series is designed to entertain and inform—not provide medical advice."
If you haven't already seen it, or perhaps if you saw it when it aired on television and your memory is a bit hazy, we highly recommend to watch Offspring. Nina Proudman, an obstetrician who lives in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy, struggles to deal with her work, eccentric family and her search for a soul mate. With great a great cast, relatable storylines, plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and all seven seasons available on Netflix, this is the perfect show to start bingeing.
If you're looking for something a little more darker, try Mindhunter. Based off a true story, it follows detectives Holden Ford and Bill Tench who who operate the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit and interview imprisoned serial killers to understand how they think, with the hope of applying this knowledge to solve ongoing cases.
Not going to lie - serial killers are so fascinating purely because no sane person can understand how or why they do what they do. Especially when they are portrayed as likeable or "normal", which is even scarier, and why Mindhunter is so addictive.
