This netflix remake of a 1975 classic stays true to the old school sitcom formula, with all the overacting and laugh tracks that we have come to tolerate and enjoy when they’re successfully executed. Fortunately, this is often the case with One Day at a Time.Penelope (Justina Machado) is a single mom taking care of a small Cuban-American family that consists of her two teenage children and her mom, charmingly played by Rita Moreno.The writing and settings offer something for all ages, and the solid, light-hearted comedy make this a great watch for the whole family.

A look into the interesting lives and magnificent plates made in the kitchens of some of the best chefs in the world (including an episode with the best). Each episode dives deep into their worlds’, providing an intimate and ultimately inspiring look at their life both inside the kitchen and out; with all of them having lived unique lives to say the least. Their perspectives on everything from family life to entrepreneurship will dazzle you almost as much as the colorful and spectacular dishes they produce.

Each episode of Abstract is a look into an art discipline through the lens of a selected contemporary pioneer. From illustration to footwear design, the show follows how the artists create and live, how they got started, etc. The documentary itself is really aesthetically pleasing, which kind of taps into your own creativity. The designers in the series are unknowingly well-known. Does that make sense? You will instantly recognise their work even though you’ve never heard of them before. A light, easy-going and inspirational documentary.
