Netflix has been pumping out a lot of original series as of late, many of which are little known. Here are a few really great Netflix series that are queued and ready to binge.
Originally a BBC show in the UK that was canceled after one season, the series was picked up by Netflix . The show chronicles the life of Dylan, a 20- something, after he has found out he has chlamydia. He decides that he will make a list and tell each girl that he has slept with about it in person. Each episode focuses on a different girl Dylan has slept with, flashing back to the times when he met them. The show truly focuses on Dylan and his friendships with his friends Luke and Angus, as well as his best friend Evie. The timeline stretches over many years and shows how the characters change throughout this time. This great British romantic comedy is funny witty and will really make you connect with the characters.
This show follows 18 year old Sam who has high functioning autism. The show highlights the difficulty that people on the spectrum face and how this changes family dynamics. The show also lets you into the lives of Sam’s parents and sister, Casey. The narratives of these characters are woven into Sams’, making for a funny and heartfelt show, which really lends itself to varying audiences. The series shows Sam navigating the dating pool and trying to experience normal teenage things. It also explores what it really means to be normal and centers around Sam trying to be an independent person. This show is great for people who want to watch something a little different.
Dear White People
The show is based on the movie of the same name and takes place at Winchester University. The show is about a group of black students at a predominantly white Ivy league college. The students have to navigate cultural bias, discrimination, and social injustice. This show doesn’t mind pushing boundaries when it comes to talking about race. Its purpose is to highlight institutional racism in universities and highlight the problems young African Americans face. The series uses irony and humor as a vessel to talk about darker and more deep rooted issues that are still in our society.
