Stay Home, Stay Calm and Chill With Netflix

CMCO? WFH? We think we will be binging on Netflix as we #stayhome to stay safe. Luckily, Netflix has a whole line-up of binge-worthy shows releasing in October, and we are putting these on “My List”


The Haunting of Bly Manor

Streaming 9 October onwards, watch the trailer here

If you enjoyed The Haunting of Hill House as much as we did, then you definitely have to watch The Haunting of Bly Manor. Although not a sequel, you will see some familiar faces in this adaptation which is based on the Henry James’ novel The Turn Of The Screw. The Haunting of Bly Manor may not be as scary as it’s predecessor (Hill House offered a lot of jump scares), but we think the storyline is beautifully tragic and definitely “haunted” us for days after we watched it.


Blackpink: Light Up The Sky

Streaming 14 October onwards, watch the trailer here

Don’t judge us. We swear we are not die-hard K-pop fans, but who can ignore a documentary that tells the story of record-shattering Korean girl band Blackpink’s rise to fame. A worldwide phenomenon, Guinness World Records announced that Blackpink broke three records for for their music video for ‘How You Like That’, released on 26 June 2020, which garnered 86.3 million views (!!) on its first day.



Unsolved Mysteries: Volume 2

Streaming 19 October onwards, watch the trailer here

Calling all sleuths, Unsolved Mysteries is returning with six new cases that are even more baffling and puzzling than before. Originally a television show in the US which first aired in 1987, Netflix has since rebooted the series which focuses on cold cases and unexplained phenomena. The trailer for season 2 dropped recently, and we must say, we can’t wait.





Streaming 21 October onwards, watch the trailer here

Based on the 1938 novel by Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca tells the tale of a newly married young woman who finds herself battling the shadow of her husband’s dead first wife, the mysterious Rebecca. Alfred Hitchcock won an Academy Award for Best Picture with his adaptation released in 1940, so we hope the 2020 adaptation lives up to its potential, otherwise we will just have to make do with ogling Lily James and Armie Hammer.  



Over The Moon 23 October

Streaming 23 October onwards, watch the trailer here

Our list would not be complete if we didn’t include something for the kids. Over The Moon tells the story of a girl named Fei Fei, who tries to build and fly a rocket ship to prove the existence of the moon goddess, Chang’e. The mooncake festival may be over, but there is no reason why we can’t enjoy this heart-warming tale.



My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman

Streaming 21 October onwards, watch the trailer here

TV legend David Letterman is back with the third season of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Dave Chapelle, Robert Downey Jr., Lizzo and Kim Kardashian West sit down for intimate interviews with David Letterman, his huge beard and dry sense of humour.
