The Good Place

Funny show with a great message about humanity and redemption. The show follows after-life of four characters: Elenor, a dirtbag, Chidi, who is painfully indecisive, Jason, an adorable idiot, and Tahani, an arrogant showoff. All of them believe that they'd made it into heaven - "The Good Place". It is a place run by an "Architect" named Michael whose role is to ensure their safe integration into their new situation.

By exploring the new place four characters start to question whether they have truly made it to "the good place". The show explores morality, human behavior and feels like a reminder of the capacity for goodness within all of us. By exploring ethical questions regarding what the good life constitutes four characters gain points for rewards in their afterlife.

This is a really fun and entertaining show! It explores the topic of teenage sexuality in a fresh and holistic way. This is not something we commonly experience in teenage-staring movies and series. The show follows the story of a teenager Otis whose mother is a sex therapist and very open about her sexuality. Otis together with a high school classmate runs an underground sex therapy clinic for their classmates.

He coaches his peers through their sexual problems and offers counsel on everything from unreturned crushes, body image issues, erectile disfunction to how to figure out what you like in bed. It is a unique romantic comedy that offers a realistic view of sex and relationships in a truly gentle and nonjudgmental way. The show normalizes sexuality and creates space for range of preferences and in a subtle way shows the importance of communication in friendships and relationships.

Breaking Bad

My wife and I have recently finished the last season of Breaking Bad - yes, we know we are a bit late as it has been some time since this series was filmed :)

This is still the best-rated series on Netflix and we can recommend it as well. One of the best parts in the series is the character development. Even the characters that were not so "likable" in the beginning became so towards the end. Each character has a certain depth and almost no character is presented as "good" or "bad" only. There were not that many superhero scenes and this also enables the viewer to empathize with situations. The last season could be better as one gets an impression that the ending was rushed.

Each episode is about 45 minutes long which is ideal if you don't want to spend too much time watching.

If you are looking for your next crime drama to watch that is worth your time, this one is for you.
