What to Watch on Netflix - Documentaries

Who didn't spend most of lockdown with Netflix? I know I did! Netflix is full of some great series and movies, and some not so great ones honestly, but I thought I would list my Netflix recommendations, for if you were looking for something new to watch! 

This post I am going to be focusing on documentaries.

The first thing I will always recommend someone watching is BlackFish. As a 90's baby, I was just as obsessed as everybody else with Free Willy and was desperate to go to SeaWorld to see the Orcas perform, then back in 2016, while on maternity leave, I consumed the entirety of Netflix (or so it seemed) and came across BlackFish. I won't spoil it for you but I highly recommend you check it out. 

My second Netflix go-to has to be Making a Murderer. If you haven't seen it, where have you been?! If you love crime documentaries check this out, and please someone, tell me, did they do it?!

A more recent Netflix documentary that I could not stop watching until the end was Surviving R.Kelly. R.Kelly was a huge part of my childhood growing up in the '90s and I must have been completely oblivious because I never had any idea that all of this stuff was going on - like him marrying a 15-year-old Aaliyah. This documentary was wonderfully done and had me in tears. However, I can never listen to R.Kelly's music again.

I am a huge history buff and as a child was obsessed with the story of Anastasia so when Netflix put on the Docu-drama The Last Czars I knew I had to watch it. I finished the series in a day and loved every bit of it. I felt that this was different too as it has the dramatisation in with the documentary making it much more enjoyable to watch - If you loved Anastasia definitely check it out!

Who didn't love Don't F**K with Cats? I honestly felt like I was watching a crime drama series and couldn't stop watching - Apart from when the cats where being hurt! - But it was definitely addictive. Give it a watch if you haven't already. 


  1. Don't fuck with cats was incredible to watch - although very graphic, the way they tracked the dude down was so interesting x

  2. Oooh I love Anastasia so i will definitely give that one a go!

  3. Great post! Thank you for sharing this! I haven't watched any of these but I will check them out!

  4. I’m so bad at watching new things on Netflix, I just keep watching the same re-runs! But I thought Surviving R Kelly was great! Making a murderer is on my list too 😊 Katie (The Twenty Percent)

  5. I feel so sad because we don't have Netflix so I can only bookmark for the future! Lisa

Birth Story

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
