What It’s About: “Love and sacrifice intertwine in this brilliant and provocative debut of rare beauty about a girl dealing with her mother’s schizophrenia and her own mental illness.“
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I was at my dad’s for Easter and my 20 year old sister was like, “OMG IT IS SO FUNNY YOU MUST WATCH IT.” So we watched the first two episodes and I was like OKAY FINE I SHALL WATCH THE REST AT SOME POINT.
What It Is About: “From “30 Rock” executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock comes this hilarious comedy series starring Ellie Kemper (“The Office,” “Bridesmaids”) as a woman who is rescued from a doomsday cult and starts life over as a nanny for a socialite (Jane Krakowski from “30 Rock”) in New York City. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers and a couple of past-due library books, she takes on a world she didn’t think even existed anymore.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: It was recommended to me by Netflix based on my interests of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Royal Tenanbaums & Lost in Translation. HAHAH OKAY YOU WIN. I LOVE ALL THOSE.
What It Is About: “After being fired from her job and dumped by her cheating boyfriend, a comedian bottoms out and has a drunken one-night stand with a nice guy who’s not her type. Weeks later, she finds out she’s pregnant.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: It definitely piqued my interest with some of the reception on this one. But truly like seeing Jen play different roles outside of what she typically gets cast in.
