Alice in Borderland

Alice in Borderland made me lose my mind. I watched and rewatched the series several times and every time I felt a similar rush as the previous times. I mean, the starting of the series is thrilling and mind-boggling – Arisu and his friends suddenly find the streets of Tokyo empty… and then they are forced to take part in deathmatches to stay alive. The conspiracy, friendships and the determination to stay alive, along with the fun, interesting and horrifying tasks are what makes this series an absolute win.

Do you have the absolute worst luck in the world? Like, the thing that can just never go wrong, do you feel like you can f- that up? Well, that’s kind of the case with Todd Brotzman. To prove the point, he gets embroiled in a murder and kicked out of his job. Until Dirk Gently comes along and craziness ensues! This 2016 series is a grossly underappreciated Netflix sci-fi series that is an absolute gem and a laughing riot.
