  • Well that's our social life down the drain

    Spring may finally be here but the promise of warm weather and a jug of Pimms in our local beer garden is still a good couple of months away – but don’t worry, that’s why we have Netflix.

    And, the streaming service have just released a list of everything they’ve acquired for April and the internet is pretty excited.

    Think 80s horror films (and classics like Gremlins) and new female-led series’ to sink our teeth into, including the second season of the hysterical Chewing Gum and the hotly anticipated Girlboss.

    Here’s the list in full so you know when to not make any social plans…
