I'm a sucker for foreign shows. I enjoy high school shows like Elite (Spanish) and Baby (Italian).
In my home country Bulgaria we have a shit ton of Turkish dramas and they're fun to leave in the background over a family dinner or something. They're just nostalgic for me as they remind me of summers at my grandma's.
I used to enjoy Korean shows but they're incredibly slow and frustrating.
I also just finished the Mexican show Oscuro Deseo, then El Club because this motherfucker is hot
>>104880>(please don't spam korean shit)
Why op? Why the objection to kdrama posts?>>104895> Any anons know other places where there is a good amount of focus on the the direction in tv shows and series?
Turkish dramas ig. At least from what I've seen.

Argentinian comedy "Los Simuladores"/"The Pretenders": "about a small team of con-artists for hire, who use their skills to solve common people's life problems". They basically create ridiculous scenarios to fulfill their client's needs, it's very good but I don't know where it's available for non-spanish speakers.
Speaking of k-dramas, I've tried to get into some of them (because I like their production and concepts) so many times and it's just impossible. Couldn't even get past the first episode of Goblin, The Eternal Monarch, Hotel Del Luna, Extracurricular (too much violence) and Reply 1988, then I watched SKY Castle, I binged the first episodes and then I got bored.
They're so slow, the acting is often terrible and the dialogues are always so unnatural.
I'm going to try one last time with the release of Record Of Youth, I like that it's set in the entertainment industry + Park So Dam is leading

true, and there's so much of it. I wonder if it is similar in other countries. Also I think it's hilarious most people know someone who was in a show like that once.

I don't have a TV connection and the only tv programm I check out online on a regular basis is Arte. I love their documentaries and especially Karambolage!

not to humble brag here but my former bff lived a few streets away from Nadine "The Brain". This was the closest thing I ever got to have a connection to a super star lmao >>105651
I used to love arte tracks but at some point they kind of changed the show and it didn't appeal to me anymore. They had lots of cool shows and movies during the late night. Discovered lots of cool not so mainstream artists because of it.
Speaking of trash tv: Let's do not forget about Familie Ritter
I never really watched Sanremo before, but for some reason I ended up watching it in February (or January? I don't know) and it was fucking brilliant. Too bad we probably won't get another year like that.

It's English but that counts from a different country for me so I'm posting it.
I'm obsessed with the show taskmaster. I've watched all the episodes before but since they've been uploaded on youtube I fell back into task-limbo. I love the chaotic energy of the show and how it genuinly makes me laugh hysterically.

Omg I'm addicted to this show as well!! I live in a shitty Eastern-European country and the TV shows here are all trash. I also love 8 out of 10 cats
I think it turned up to be good because Fiorello is such a clown in the good sense. They were completely amping it up every evening even when there was no need for it. Amadeus isn't particulary funny or charming by himself (see this other iconic moment of italian television) but he plays an amazing straight man to Fiorello.
But yeah, we are probably going back to snoozefest this february (if it goes on… I think it will, though).

Skam is my guilty pleasure but only the og one. Watched blank and lovleg too, idk why I like stupid norwegian teen shows so much.
Yeah, they were a good duo, and even picked good singers imo, some kind of memey/trashy too (like Elettra Lamborghini and Morgan).
Baglioni with Michelle and that other guy I don't remember were so bad in comparison.
It still irritates me how the second season put Noora in the backseat outside of her struggling relationship with an awkward guy who really couldn't fucking act and it hurt to watch him try.
Hopefully one of the remakes has a pro actor William character, but I'm not going to watch them to find out.

This absolute trash masterpiece. "Adrian" is a cartoon show directed by famous italian singer and actor Adriano Celentano (who has some sort of god/messiah complex) with art inspired by artist Milo Manara.
The protagonist is a literal self insert of the real Adriano, made younger and buffer of course, who in the story manages to save a dystopian world controlled by stereotypical bad guy with his weather-controlling singing.
The episodes were shown live on italian television, preceded by mediocre skits done in a teather with a live audience who mostly wanted to see the singer after a long time of no concerts. Too bad he was present for only a few minutes each episode.
Apart from being very badly done, the cartoon blessed us with ear-shattering tv commercials, softcore porn, bad drawings, bad voice acting, misogynist content, your typical woke shit and a good dose of hypocrisy. Overall, it's just a glorified wank session of it's director.
Oh God, I loved it back when it only came out!! Used to watch it during classes in HS.
I loved Noora so much but her season felt like such huge cliffhanger to me, not sure why… Maybe because her 'bf' actor couldn't act at all… However I loved his friend, had a huge crush on him.

God I miss watching it as it aired! Mafia International, la Volpe, the sexist speech to the assaulted girls, the singer from Negramaro being in it, the hilarious frames and concept art from Manara that became memes.
The North Korean animation studio that is allegedly involved with Adrian also helped animate Angel's Friends, a cartoon some fellow zoomers may recall. Despite it being an adaptation of an italian comic, the second season was never aired in Italy. Make it make sense!

Something about it felt so surreal. Watching it kind of late (since the skits were quite lenghty and going nowhere) felt like a fever dream. The scene of la Volpe beating up the rapists by DANCING with a ton of reused animations and then basically telling the victims
it was their fault for getting drunk! And then backpedaling some episodes later by making a bad actress tell a speech about women and rape and how it's never the victim
The cartoon was so memey that it was referenced in the italian translation of a semi-popular videogame (Persona 5 Royal, that is)
It was also ironic how a cartoon that carries messages against dictatorship was produced in fucking North Korea. I wasn't aware the same studio made Angel's Friends! Now that I think about it the style is similar. What I did know is that many years back the studio animated another italian cartoon, "Titanic: the Legend goes on", which JonTron made a video about!
