You may have caught our recent post reviewing the Spanish telenovelas currently on offer on Netflix Australia. Of those, La Casa de al Lado has quickly become one of our favourite shows to watch. We love to talk about it, we love to mock it, and we love to love it. Here are our reasons why we think you’ll love it too.
The first episode of Riverdale, the teen drama based on the Archie Comics, aired last week. As a longtime fan and collector of the original comic books, I was pumped to hear it had been revived again (there have already been several film and TV adaptations). The wholesome and lovable characters that I knew were coming to the small screen!

I, like the rest of the Internet, recently became obsessed with the Netflix Original tv series Stranger Things.

A plump, toothless kid who loves chocolate pudding. Dustin Henderson.
