Plot:

Set in Madrid, a mysterious man known as "The Professor" recruits a group of eight people, who choose cities for code-names, to carry out an ambitious plan that involves entering the Royal Mint of Spain,  and escaping with €2.4 billion. After taking 67 people hostage inside the Mint, the team plans to remain inside for 11 days to print the money as they deal with elite police forces. In the events succeeding the initial heist, the group finds themselves preparing for a second heist, this time on the Bank of Spain, as they again deal with hostages and police forces.

Our Review:
Smart, addictive and so out of the ordinary. “A page turner version of a TV series” one episode is never enough. You’ll get hooked and then you’ll get your friends hooked. It’s so compelling with such amazing characters that you will be rooting for the criminals! After watching the series, be sure to watch "Money Heist: The Phenomenon" which is a documentary that will make you appreciate all the effort the cast and crew exerted to turn this show into the global phenomenon that it is today.
 

2. Love is Blind

Genre: reality TV, romance, drama, comedy

Seasons: 1 Season (11 episodes total)

Plot:

Singles try to find a match and fall in love -- without ever seeing each other face-to-face, as emotional connection attempts to conquer physical attraction. They only finally see each other once they are engaged.

Our Review:

Watch Love Is Blind if you are ready for hilariously cringeworthy entertainment that's sure to leave you wanting to watch the rest with a glass of wine in hand and maybe even on Netflix Party with your partner or best friends!

3. Modern Family

Genre: Comedy, Family, Feel Good

Seasons: 11 seasons (250 episodes total) 20 minutes per episode

Plot:

Three modern-day families from California try to deal with their kids, quirky spouses and jobs in their own unique ways, often falling into hilarious situations.

Our Review:
Effortlessly hilarious. Seen this already? Rewatch and laugh all over again. It's a great show for just lounging around or even leaving on in the background as you cook or clean. This show has won numerous awards and we're not surprised! If you haven't seen it yet, we encourage you to try watching just 1 episode.
 

4. The Final Table

Genre: cooking competition

Seasons: 1 season (10 episodes)

Plot:

"The Final Table" is one of the most ambitious culinary competitions in the genre. The first season features 12 pairs of chefs from around the world preparing national dishes from a number of nations, including Mexico, Spain, England, Japan, India and the U.S.

Our Review:

The most incredibly well produced cooking competition we've ever seen. Each chef in this competition has achieved so much in their career and you just can't help but respect everybody in this show, even the ones who left early. This Final Table is for all the professional chefs inside of us that we never knew existed. It will leave you with a humble appreciation for chefs plus a greater knowledge about food.

5. Itaewon Class

Genre: kdrama, business, romance, comedy

Seasons: 1 season (16 episodes) about an hour long per episode

Plot: 

The central narrative is a revenge plot revolving around Park Saeroyi, whose singular goal is to open a pocha (think a sit-down bar with food) called DanBam, and turn it into the biggest food company in Korea while destroying his enemies.

Our Review:
A strikingly different Kdrama that's centered on class warfare, overlapping love triangles and blood feuds. We love how there's a whole bunch of business strategies and tips that you'll pick up along the way. It's diverse, enticing and relatable all at the same time. Watch this if you're looking for something more than the usual love-centered Kdrama!
