If you need a break from Trump, Brexit, Boris, Hunt, Iran and so on I cannot recommend more highly the Israeli police series Hashoter Hatov (Good Cop) It’s available on Netflix and ticks all the boxes:
- It’s cross cultural.
- It’s intellectual (foreign language with subtitles), but occasionally risqué.
- It’s family centered from the police station to the actual families.
- It’s only 30 minutes for each episode so you can binge-watch without guilt.
- The humour and situations range from the real to the bizarre into the surreal but always credible.
- Finally, it let’s you laugh at other people’s problems without excessive schadenfreude.
It’s my find of the month!
