- The Empress
I adored this historical romance. The love, the passion, the political climate – all of it was *chef’s kiss*. And yes, this show is in German, but don’t let that stop you from watching it. Subtitles should not stop you from watching a truly wonderful, intriguing love story.
- The Swimmers
Okay, this isn’t a show. It’s a movie. But it is phenomenal, and based on a true story. Learn all about Yursa and Sarah Mardini’s journey in this captivating tale.
- Spinning Out
This show is a must watch. I was here for Kat Baker’s journey. I needed to know if she successfully started skating again and how her romantic life was going to unfold.
From the opening scene, I was drawn in. This show was the show. I binge watched it in a weekend. And then binge watched it again. That is how good it was. I highly, highly recommend watching the show. Also, the soundtrack is also spectacular.
I cried watching this show. The story was beautiful and sad and heartwarming. And the ending… satisfying. The producers took the time to make this show as authentic as possible.
This show really opened my eyes to the hardships of poverty and how hard it can be to raise a child. This story is not glamorized. It is hard to watch at times, but keep on watching. The emotional ride is real.
- Selena: The Series
I will admit, this was my first glimpse into the life of Selena. Growing up, the only famous Selena I knew was Selena Gomez. But there is, arguably, a far more famous Selena – Selena Quintanilla Pérez. And her story is one you need to watch.
- Half Bad: The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself
I love a good fantasy story, and this was it for me. Oftentimes, I feel like movies and shows fall short when making a fantasy world set in present day. But this fantasy world was perfectly woven in to the every day world. And the plot and characters are great!
