I’m a big fan of international television. Which is to say, I watch a lot of shows in a lot of different languages. As a teenager this meant watching videos in clips on YouTube, but with streaming being what it is, finding programmes from other countries is easier than ever. And that makes me so happy! Thank you, Netflix. King of Streaming. So, I’m randomly compiling a list for anyone looking for non-English language shows.
**This is by no means a full list, just what I’ve written up reviews for. **
- Le Bazar de la Charité  french, romance, costume drama | ★★★★★ | that romance
- Zone Blanche  french, noir, crime, fantasy | ★★★★½ | so spooky, so good
- Øyevitne  norwegian, crime, lgbt+ | ★★★★★ | couldn’t relax, couldn’t look away

Writing up this post has also made me realise how many other shows I should write up reviews for! Seriously, there are so many amazing shows out there and I have so many in my queue, but alas, time.

Wow, this is a great list! We’ve just started watching Money Heist and it’s now getting to the stage where I’m going to have to binge watch the rest of the series in one hit because I need to know what happens!! 😂
Thank you! 😊😊
I’ve heard such good things about that one! Definitely on my list!
