Editor's Picks: What To Watch On Netflix This Summer
By Hong Kong Tatler

From mind-twisting dramas to romantic movies that take us right back to high school, this is what our editors are watching on Netflix these days:

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman


"I grew up watching David Letterman's The Late Show as a teen, so it's nice to see him come back. What I love about Letterman is that he asks great questions and is so knowledgable on so many different topics. One of my favourite episodes is the one with Kayne West, where he styles Letterman up in the latest season of Yeezy."Justine Lee, Fashion Director

Queer Eye


"I love Queer Eye because of the fab five’s dynamic, it's entertaining, funny and just uplifting—I love watching every transformation unfold and honestly most episodes make me tear up."Christian Barlow, Director of VIP Content and Communications 


Black Mirror


"As a huge fan of science fiction, I’m so obsessed with the Black Mirror series. This show is a dark satire about modern technology and the digital world, where each episode explores the unanticipated consequences of new technologies in the near future. Bandersnatch is my favourite piece from the series so far, as I really love its interactive storytelling format! This full-length film allows us to decide what happens next through our remotes or touch screens for different endings."—Helen Yu, Digital Editorial Assistant

Tuca & Bertie


"This cartoon is brilliantly mad, with stellar comedic writing from Lisa Hanawalt (of Bojack Horseman fame) that manages to nail the elder millennial zeitgeist: the show revolves around the titular characters, two 30-something bird-women with strikingly different personalities. Some moments are completely bizarre, but beyond the technicolour freewheeling there are some thoughtful statements being made about the #MeToo movement in the F&B world, when Bertie starts apprenticing as a baker for the lean-and-mean Pastry Pete, a toxic male penguin responsible for Insta-worthy, Tasty Num Nums award-winning creations such as the Crunt (a ludicrous cruller and bundt cake hybrid, clearly a homage to Dominique Ansel’s legendary Cronut). With news that Netflix hasn’t confirmed a second season, I’m hoping that another platform will pick up this super quirky, hilarious gem of a show."Charmaine Mok, Editorial Director, Food & Wine

Stranger Things


"Things in Hawkins are looking pretty grim this summer (I mean, in the summer of 1985) in the third season, with new faces and more monsters leaking from the Upside Down. A sense of humour, love relationships and sunshine add lighthearted elements to the plot, taking us on an emotional roller coaster ride peaked with terrors for the kids of Hawkins."Pearl Yan, Digital Projects Editor


To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before


“I was worried that this would be another sappy teenage love story but was pleasantly surprised by how sweet and simple the storyline was. Cute and funny with plenty of cringe moments (we’ve all had those), this totally took me back to my high school days when I had a million crushes—and thanks to the movie, I now have one on lead actor Noah Centineo!”Erica Fong, Digital Content Director

Winter On Fire: Ukraine's Fight For Freedom


"This powerful documentary is about the Euromaidan protests in Ukraine, where a peaceful protest quickly evolved into chaos, civil unrest and clashes between citizens and special forces. It's pretty apt for what's currently happening in Hong Kong."Coco Marett, Digital Editor
