    We just finished The English on Prime. Beautifully done if a bit confusing at first. We are also working our way through The Wonderful Mrs. Maizel which brings more giggles than I would have expected.

    We are on a binge of watching Korean shows on Netflix. Best one so far is Startup. A bunch of smart groups of young people who want help starting a company with their ideas complete for help thru various competitions. Not a reality show but a drama built around this concept. It was well written and I enjoyed all the performances. Even learned a little.

    Then we watched Mine. A mystery (over 16 long episodes) of murder in a uber rich Korean family.

    Right now we are in the middle of Law School. A complex murder mystery around law school and strange court proceedings in Korea. Would not stick with it but the actors are doing a great job and we have to find out what happens.

    In between we caught several various dramas and historical series. Oh, and we did watch Squid Games and I wish I had not. Incredibly violent!!!!!!!

    Last winter we watched several very long Chinese historical dramas and enjoyed them a lot. Not so much their modern TV shows.

    We love Korean shows, especially the period pieces. I'm finding them a refreshing change from American programing. Loved My Country, Mr Sunshine, The Kings Affection. My husband loves Extraordinary Attorney Woo.

    It is amazing what they can do with a wide variety of ages and "looks" of actors and in the shows we have watched there is no sex, nudity, violence (well except for Squid Games), bad language, etc. The shows feel like they are being made for an older audience 25++ than American shows which seem to be 18-24 year olds. And education, careers, getting ahead, being careful with ones reputation is seemingly more important than romance and dating.

    Bad characters can do a lot of screaming as in the loudest gets the result. Subtitles help a lot.

    Young romantic relationships are very subtle. Love is rarely mentioned.

    Yes, there is a lot of unrequited love. Some are very romantic without the two characters ever getting together. Kind of refreshing....

    We always laugh when watching an American period piece with gratuitous sex, look at each other and say "See what happened when there was no cable TV!"
