If there’s one thing we always make time for, it’s Netflix. We all look forward to that time of day when we’re done with our obligations and responsibilities and can unwind by watching our favorite shows on our phone or laptop. Netflix doesn’t just stream movies or shows from other networks, there are many shows that are exclusive to its network. We can always count on Netflix delivering when it comes to entertainment. Here’s every show you should be watching in April.
13 Reasons Why
Based on the 2007 novel, 13 Reasons Why covers sensitive subjects like bullying, sexual assault and suicide. It centers on Hannah, a high school student who commits suicide and leaves behind tapes to show why she took her life. As the season goes on, it’ll be interesting to see how the show, executive produced by Selena Gomez, handles issues like assault, cyber bullying, and mental health. There are some definite differences between the book and the show, which will heavily feature the influence of social media to relate to the current digital age.
Marvel’s Iron Fist
It was a good year for Marvel in 2016 and 2017 shouldn’t be any different. It’s the fourth Marvel series on Netflix, alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. The show definitely isn’t lacking in the action aspect and with its layered plot, we’ll have to wait to see how the plot unfolds.
