Denmark is no longer in a lockdown, but there are still many restrictions such as needing a negative covid test to go out to eat, to the movies, museums, and even to school (I have to have a test done every week now for my Danish school). I have been spending a lot of time at home so for this post, I wanted to share 7 series I have been watching these past few months on Netflix.
The Irregulars is set in Victorian London, and it follows a group of teens who are living on the streets. John Watson then requests their help to solve supernatural crimes while they search for his business partner Sherlock Holmes. I enjoyed this series, but it seems like many people did not because they expected a series focused on Sherlock Holmes like with Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock. Sherlock does not appear as a character until later on in The Irregulars as the main focus is on the teens and them solving the crimes. Also, others complained that the series is not historically accurate, but how historically accurate is the Sherlock Holmes universe? Since I did not expect a historically accurate series focused on Sherlock Holmes, I was able to enjoy it. Sadly Netflix announced the series was canceled this month, but I would still recommend watching it as it was interesting to see a different take on the Sherlock Holmes universe.

¿Quién mató a Sara?/Who Killed Sara?
Who Killed Sara? follows Alex Guzmán who spent 18 years in prison after he was framed for his sister’s murder. Once he is released, he is intent on finding out who killed Sara and getting revenge on the Lazcano family. First off, this series is in Spanish, but there is the option to watch it with subtitles or have it dubbed (I watched it with subtitles). The series was interesting to watch because it seemed like everyone had a motive to kill Sara, and you learn more and more about Sara and the Lazcano family as the series goes on. There is also a twist that I did not see coming. Season 2 of Who Killed Sara? was released last week, and I am looking forward to watching it soon.

Behind Her Eyes
Behind Her Eyes follows Louise who is a single mother and has a part-time job at a psychiatrist’s office. She begins an affair with her new boss David and has an unlikely friendship with his wife Adele. However, Louise soon finds herself caught in a dangerous web of secrets. Behind Her Eyes is a slow-burn series, which is probably not for everyone , but I enjoyed it. You learn more about the character’s past throughout the series, and there are also unexpected plot twists, which made the series even more interesting.
Genres: Mystery, Psychological Thriller, and Drama
Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer
Night Stalker is a documentary series about how the American serial killer Richard Ramirez was hunted down and brought to justice. Even though the series is about a serial killer, the main focus is on the detectives Gil Carrillo and Frank Salerno who were in charge of the case as well as survivors and family members of the victims. Ramirez was not glamorized, which many documentaries about serial killers seem to do. In fact not much about Ramirez’s past or the trial is covered in the series, and I liked that because the victims were given a voice instead.
Genre: True Crime
Murder Among the Mormons
Murder Among the Mormons is a documentary series about Mark Hofmann who created forgeries of early Mormon documents as well as the three bombings that killed two members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). One thing I like about this documentary is that it not bashing Mormons and LDS church, but instead you learn about how the bombings happened and how Hofmann was able to pass off his forgeries as real historical Mormon documents. The documentary also interviews rare document dealers and collectors who were connected to Hofmann, his wife, and members of law enforcement.
Genre: True Crime
The Circle USA Season 2
The Circle is a reality series where players live in an isolated apartment and their only communication with the other players is through the social media platform The Circle. I loved the first season of The Circle because the series has an interesting concept and it was intriguing seeing if the catfish would be found out. The second season of The Circle did not disappoint, and it was entertaining and filled with drama.
Genre: Reality TV
Nailed It! Double Trouble!
Nailed It! is a reality series where home bakers with a bad track record try to recreate edible masterpieces and win $10,000. I always love binge-watching Nailed It! when a new season is released, and this time around with the Double Trouble season, bakers compete in pairs. However, having 2 bakers does not mean the desserts will be any better haha. Nailed It! is a light-hearted and fun series to watch.
