Netflix can sometimes feel like yet another “to-do” list for TV and entertainment lovers. Just as you start one new series, another equally amazing film, show or documentary is announced – there’s just too much to choose from.
But fear not: the TV streaming heavens have heard your prayers and delivered an answer in the form of a podcast.
What to Watch on Netflix, which launched earlier this year, has just been rebranded as 10/10 (Would Recommend).
New hosts Tolani Shoneye (of The Receipts podcast fame) and Gena-mour Barrett (who works for Netflix) talk listeners through the biggest new series and movies, along with stars and creators from the Netflix world.
The funny and frank discussions between hosts and guests don’t just delve into the making of these Netflix hits: they explore the burning issues that make them among the most talked-about films and TV in the UK. And there are plenty of laughs along the way.
Each episode offers a rundown of weekly key releases coming up on Netflix, and the stars share what they are enjoying on the streaming service right now. And it’s not always about new releases – old hits are revisited and recommended, too.
In the first episode of 10/10 (Would Recommend), comedian Michael McIntyre joins the hosts to talk about his new Netflix special, Showman, along with his favourite shows, Speed Cubers (a documentary about the Rubix cube championships) and Long Shot (a true-crime show about an innocent man accused of murder).
They also unpick Netflix’s best documentaries that really get you thinking: Three Identical Strangers and Tell Me Who I am. And No Good Nick is recommended as a show that satisfies your inner child.
