Netflix Instant: Movie & TV Picks

This hellish weather has had me staying inside a lot watching Netflix especially TV shows. They just feel the right length of time especially if you want to walk around. Anyway, here's 3 rad shows you can check out to get you through the weekend heat. 

Lately I've been crazy nostalgic for anything from my childhood in Mexico. It just so happens that this TV show was one of them! It deals with a wacky set of neighbors in a poor neighborhood. Obviously you probably want to be fluent in Spanish to watch the show since a lot of the jokes are fast-paced puns and play on words.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is awesome. Ever since 30 ROCK FROM THE SUN the guy has taken on fun projects. This one in particular is an extension of his Hit Record project. The basic premise is that this is a multi-media collaborative project where people can contribute to a movie/song/poem, etc. and then they are paid! They've been doing this for a few years now and the HR brand includes vinyl records, books, and the TV show which is essentially a variety show.

Everyone and their mom should be watching this show but if you're not familiar with it, it's the prequel show for the 2001 cult movie of the same name. While the movie took place on the last day of camp, the show takes place during the first day (duh!) and it gives a lot of context and backstory to the movie and why the characters are the way they are. Between the fact that the writing is as sharp if not better than the original and the showrunners managed to get the now-famous all back together, you'll be watching and re-watching this show for the rest of the summer.
