I have heard nothing but good things about the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black.” After watching the first two episodes, I now understand why everyone loves it. I am only two episodes in and am already hooked.
I have never been a nonfiction novel fan, but when I happened to stumble across the theatrical trailer for the upcoming film “Unbroken,” my interest was most definitely piqued. Through some research I found that the film was based off of the novel “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption,” written by Laura Hillenbrand. I tend to avoid novels with war-like settings and backgrounds, but I figured I would give “Unbroken” a chance.
After months of pondering whether or not “The Blacklist” was worth watching, I finally caved in and cannot believe I waited so long to give this show a try. It is absolutely amazing. Even though I heard great things about it, I was still skeptical when I first started the show. However, after watching three straight episodes and staying up until 3 a.m., I can officially say I am addicted.
