Single’s Inferno Season 2Among the many non-English Netflix releases to check out over the coming week, for example, fans of Netflix’s rapidly growing slate of Korean content might want to put Single’s Inferno on their list. The Recruit + new Christmas Netflix releasesAs for the forthcoming Netflix releases that are at the top of my watchlist, meanwhile, I’m a fan of spy thrillers — which means I’m probably going to have to check out The Recruit (coming on December 16). Moving right along, it should also come as no surprise that Christmas-themed Netflix releases are doing especially well at the moment. In fact, five of the 10 biggest Netflix movies in the world this week are Christmas films. Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area: Single’s Inferno isn’t the only new Korean-language TV on Netflix to enjoy over the next several days.
Along these same lines, some of the biggest Netflix series in the world right now are also Korean titles — and as far as what’s to come, Netflix has just unveiled its biggest-ever annual release slate of Korean TV shows and movies. The biggest Korean series in the world on NetflixThat slate includes Part 2 of the revenge drama The Glory, which also happens to be one of the biggest Netflix shows in the world right now. The GloryBased on Netflix’s latest global Top 10 data, The Glory is currently the #2 non-English Netflix series in the world at the moment. It also reunited the screenwriter and lead actress from Descendants of the Sun, another popular Korean series, which helped ensure plenty of attention for this new one. This show is a twist on the dating format that we’re all familiar with — only, this being a Korean series, its chaste atmosphere is night-and-day different from something like The Bachelor and its ilk.10 days ago BGR
Subjectivity aside, though, we can’t stress this next point enough:Any of this year’s best TV shows lists that don’t include the 8-episode Pachinko on Apple TV Plus — one of the most breathtaking, masterful works of art to ever grace the small screen — are woefully and utterly incomplete. But I’m still swooning over the beauty and masterful storytelling of Pachinko, which absolutely belongs on each and every one of these TV rankings. I can’t tell you exactly when this show asserted itself to me as one of the best TV shows of 2022. Season 2 coming to Apple TV PlusWhat’s more: Not only was Pachinko one of the best TV shows of 2022, but more of it is on the way (thank goodness). The new season will continue the riveting story that spans generations and is told across three languages — Korean, Japanese, and English.1 month ago BGR

That said, let’s take a closer look at four Apple TV Plus shows that are absolute must-watches, all of which also have wowed both critics and fans. After you finish watching Slow Horses, this should be the next title on your Apple TV Plus watch list. They included: Outstanding Comedy Series; Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (for Jason Sudeikis); Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (for Brett Goldstein); and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series (for MJ Delaney).2 months ago BGR
Netflix’s Basic with Ads subscription plan launched in several markets on Thursday. Where is Netflix Basic with Ads available?
