As we all #staysafe and are staying home, the numbers (15 million more) of Netflix subscribers have gone mad. Netflix is one of the rare companies benefiting from the global pandemic, which has kept billions of people at home with nothing to do but stream. Of course there are plenty of other things to do, but let’s be sincere this one is the easiest.
So let’s start my personal countdown
One of the series that seriously plays with your mind, since it opens your eyes to a world which a few of us, new that it existed out there. With a clear 8 on IMDB, Unorthodox is the story of a young Hasidic Jewish woman who flees from her life in Brooklyn, her community, and her arranged marriage to start anew in Berlin. The four-part series is based on Deborah Feldman’s memoir Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots, and is Netflix’s first foray into Yiddish content (there are plenty more now). The show is a nuanced, thoughtful portrait of a community and what it means to be an individual within it. The cast’s wonderful performances make it a gripping watch from start to finish.
Yeah i know it only has 6.6 on IMDB and i know that it’s not the biography that you expected but for me it was intruding to discover where the truth and where the fiction is, so that is why i recommend. To give you more details the legendary psychologist is recast as a coke-fiend witch hunter who uses hypnosis to solve crimes in 19th-century Vienna. Whatever suppressed pulp instinct you might have during this time of world crisis, it probably gets some airtime during this show. Which makes the concept of a review irrelevant – you either have an appetite for this kind of mindless stew of drunk history or you don’t. And given the upside-down surreality of the real world right now, a coked-up Freud might be a deceptively hot ticket.
With 7.6 on IMDB and three seasons with 8 episodes in every season, Elite is a great way for you to spend your weekends. In the first season the question is who killed Marina, in the second season the question is the same, but now WE know but they don’t know. The third season is all about the circle that is about to close and killer that regrets, confesses and seeks for forgiveness. This is a teen drama that everyone is objectively attractive and extremely horny. There are throuples, couples, unrequited lovers, and practically just about every pairing or relationship you can imagine. And Elite isn’t afraid to show it either. Season 4 is also about to come and a new circle starts, as the cast partly changes.
From the 2019 and previous series, you have to definitely watch the true devastating story “When they see us”(8.9 on IMDB), “Stranger things“(8.8 on IMDB) of course, “Black Mirror” (8.8 on IMDB) which highlights how technology will effect and is effecting our lives and Dark (8.7 on IMDB), which has a supernatural twist and three seasons to solve the mystery of the family saga.
