Airs on Netflix Hong Kong: Now Airing
There’s just something about Spanish crime dramas that keep us on our toes. This limited series is an intense, suspenseful drama that follows armed forces as they enter a fortified psychiatric prison with the aim to capture an incarcerated serial killer. Probably not the most relaxing series to wind down with but that isn’t going to stop us from binge-watching this show.

This fascinating watch explores the psychology of addiction, consciousness and depression all of which either are the cause or result of drug use. But sometimes, drugs can be used to save lives too, psychedelic therapy can in fact be used to help patients handle mental health illness (only under the provision of a professional).

Muay Thai may be part of your weekly workout routine but there’s more to this sport than meets the eye.

Resident Evil

Airs on Netflix Hong Kong: Now Airing
Netflix may have a thing for recreating video games into either live-action dramas (think “The Witcher”) or animated series (think “Arcane”). If you know “Resident Evil”, you can get a general gist of what the plot ensues and well, if you don’t, the show will still explain the characters in a way that’s easy to catch on to. Oh, and the striking visual effects only add to the adrenaline.

Farzar

Airs on Netflix Hong Kong: Now Airing
If “Rick and Morty” was your jam, it’s likely “Farzar” will be too as they follow a somewhat similar plot line and animation style. This goofy and raunchy series offers punchy bits but again, the jokes are an acquired taste. Prince Ficahel lives in a human colony in an alien world and as Mr Prince Charming, he wants to rid the colony of evil. But, the evillest of them all is his own father (dun, dun, dun).

Persuasion

Eight years after almost marrying the love of her life, Anne Elliott reconnects with her beloved beau, battling with her heart and mind whether to believe in second chances.

The Gray Man
