The working week is behind us, and with the Blues enjoying some well-earned rest during this winter break period, we’ve all got at least 90 minutes to fill this weekend. If you find yourself at a loose end, look no further than Christian Pulisic’s Netflix recommendations.
Our young American has given us his top three shows on the streaming platform…
1. Rhythm and Flow (series)
‘There are a few big rappers in the show and they try to find the next big hip hop star. It’s really interesting,’ is Christian’s summary of the series.
Labelled as ‘Netflix’s answer to X Factor’, superstar judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. search for the next big thing in hip-hop from hopefuls across Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and Chicago. This Simon Cowell-free music competition is the first of its kind to focus on hip-hop.
2. Ozark (series)
‘Another I would say is the one where they are trying to clean out drug money at a place by the lake.’
Some people move to the countryside for a quieter, more tranquil life surrounded by nature, others to launder money for the second-largest drug cartel in Mexico. And it's the latter that makes for a thrilling Netflix series as Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) relocates his family from Chicago to the Ozarks after a finance scheme goes wrong. He then has to pay a substantial debt to a Mexican drug cartel with the fate of his family hanging in the balance.
3. Prison Break (series)
‘I just love the excitement, he's always breaking out of jail and there is a lot of stuff going on. It is so fun.’
It’s been on the scene for a long time but it still makes for great entertainment, and it’s probably been a while since you watched the first series. Pulisic joins his team-mate Willian in recommending this cliffhanger-rich series, which is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat with your fingers poised to click ‘next episode’.
Wentworth Miller stars as Michael Schofield, an engineer who cleverly installs himself in the prison which is keeping his falsely accused brother on death row, and he proceeds to, well, break them out of the prison…
