10 - Formula One

Even though we're not really a Formula One addict, the series has inspired us, carried us away and even made us a bit of a fan. In this documentary, every episode shows the history and the fate of the individual drivers, their dreams and also their willingness to take risks. The scenes were so impressive, they even sometimes gave us goosebumps. So if you're into action and fun, you should definitely watch this series.

9 - Grace and Frankie

A series that makes you laugh. It's about a friendship that grew from a shared destiny. The husbands of Grace and Frankie confess that they are gay and want to get married at a dinner. As a result, the lives of the two over 70-year-olds are completely turned upside down and both have to start all over again. It's a funny series about friendship, age and the not so easy family life. Very entertaining and ideal if you just want to turn your head off.

8 - Fauda

Fauda is a very high paced and exciting series about the struggle between Israel and Palestina. Because of the intense and realistic storyline that match current day events it is very interesting to watch.

7 - Call the Midwife

This is also not the fastest series, but we loved it! It is based on the memoires of a young British midwife in the fifties. She moves to a monastery in Poplar, London from where nuns and non-nuns work as midwives. The friendships, love stories and interesting insights in important (medical) historical milestones make it a pleasure to watch.

6 - Unorthodox

This mini-series is really impressive. It is about a young Jewish woman who flees her ultra-Orthodox community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and tries to navigate not just a new life in the secular world but her memories of life back home. The cast is amazing and with the beautiful costumes and sets, the series gives an extremely realistic insight in the culture.

5 - Ozark

This is a very original storyline about a decent middle-class family who accidentally gets involved in money laundry for drugs dealers. The more the story evolves the more the family gets wound up in it and this leads to funny situations.

4 - The Crown

The Crown is an absolute must see! It's completely different than our top 3 as the pace is quite slow and the whole serie is very delicate. But knowing this is based on true
events it is such a nice sneak peak into the British royal families life. We especially love prince Philip's character & adventures and the acting performance of Queen Elizabeth's role is outstanding!
