10 Netflix Documentaries Worth Watching Today

Last year, I decided to delete my Netflix account. I deleted it and I never looked back. But, then, I kind of hit a show/movie plateau, and somehow a TikTok video about free Netflix showed up on my for you page. Long story short, I signed up for the free trial and -who knew!- I discovered Netflix has finally upped their game! They have added new documentaries and docuseries extremely worth watching in my opinion. 🤐

Why I deleted Netflix

The reason I deleted it in the first place was because I felt all the shows and movies in their catalogue lacked variety and quality. To my surprise, they’ve now added some A+ shows, including amazing Netflix documentaries! In general, I wouldn’t say I’m a documentary gal; but, I wouldn’t say I’m not one either. 😅 These thought-provoking Netflix documentaries really caught my eye, and made me realise how much I enjoy a bit of refined film making! ☺️
