'Tidying up With Marie Kondo' - the New Best Thing on Netflix

A Netflix show about tidying up might not be an obvious hit, and yet, I’m hooked. So are millions of others. Marie Kondo, the author of a bestselling book on tidying, travels around America with the intention of “sparking joy” through cleaning up. In each episode, Ms. Kondo helped restore order in people’s lives and reignited family relationships through her KonMari method. Seriously. If readers are anything like me, you will have cupboards filled with old devices, cables, and boxes, along with everything else. This show gives great tips on how to sort it all, and, more importantly, explains why you should.

Netflix Releases Black Mirror Bandersnatch Trailer

Netflix has released the trailer for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and it’s as dystopian as ever. The movie will apparently be 90 minutes and fans think it will somehow be a Choose Your Own Adventure experience. The trailer description doesn’t say much:

In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. Welcome back.

It stars Fionn Whitehead of Dunkirk.

Minecraft Interactive Adventure Now on Netflix

The first three episodes of a Minecraft interactive television series are now available on Netflix. Yes, that’s right, the game’s maker clearly decided that it is not quite addictive enough and we needed a TV version too. Telltale Games even retained a team to finish the series when many staff were laid off. The Minecraft program follows in the tradition of ‘choose your own adventure’ books. Viewers can decide whether to have a female or male star (called Jesse) and are given choices over how to develop the story. The final two episodes will be on Netflix from 5 December.
