I hope you are all great 🙂
Today I wanna share with you guys some series I’ve watched on Netflix and really liked. I love suspense/thriller series, so this post will be based on these type of genre.
I also love documentaries, but I decided to make a separate post for that, so it doesn’t get mixed.
Another thing you should know is that I don’t have the patience for long series or series that ends without an explanation, demanding a second season. If the show is from Netflix is even worst, because you will usually finish watching the show in one week (or less lol), and the second season usually comes up after 2 years. By then, I will have forgotten everything about the story and the chances of me watching it are zero.
So the series below are short, with a proper end and perfect to binge-watch on the weekend!
Quicksand is a Swedish show (btw, I’m loving that Netflix is producing more series from different countries) based on a book by the same name.
“In the aftermatch of a school shooting, 18 year-old Maja Norberg is taken into police custody and told she’s being charged with murder”
It’s a very short show with only 6 episodes of 40-50min each. It really gets your attention and makes you want to know what will happen with Maja. Although the show is centered in teenagers, it has the right amount of suspense that doesn’t let it be too teen or even too silly to watch.
Unbelievable is a US show based on true events about a series of rapes in Washington State and Colorado.
“Unbelievable follows on Marie, a teenager who was charged with lying about having been raped, and the two detectives who followed a twisting path to arrive at the truth.”
The show has 8 episodes of 40-50min each. It’s very evolving, the fact that is based on true events, makes everything more interesting, and revolting as well. The series also shows a bit of Marie’s past to make you understand why people do not believe in her.
- The Stranger
The stranger is a British show and very new – it was released in Jan/2020.
“Adam Price is a happily married father of two whose life is turned upside-down after a stranger tells him a secret about his wife. The revelation catapults him into a world of danger.”
Is the type of show that I was sure that it would need a second season to unfold everything. For my happy surprise, the main questions are answered in the 8 episodes, yet leaving some cues for a second season, if ends up happening.
- The Sinner
The sinner is quite famous and should definitely be in this list! Starring Jessica Biel, who is also one of the producers of the show, the drama starts when Cora, a young mother, stabs a man to death with no apparent motive and without later being able to remember committing the crime.
It’s very intriguing and it makes you wanna watch one episode after the other! The sinner has 2 seasons, but one season is not related to the other one, since it tells two different stories having only the detective as a permanent character.
The second season is also very good and worth to be watched 🙂
That’s it for now! I think that those series are quite good and makes you do not leave your couch until you finish!
I hope you liked and if you watch any of those series, please let me know, I would love to hear your thoughts!
Bye bye 😘
