One commenter said, “Russian Doll, on Netflix. It can take an episode or two to catch you. The lead character is a brash, loud New Yorker, but as you learn her plight, it gets very interesting. Warning: sex, drugs, rough language.”
Another said, “Outlander — on Netflix and Starz. It’s a wonderful story about time travel from 1948 England to 1748 Scotland. You learn Scottish Gaelic but there are many steamy scenes because of the 1800s era...”
And another said, “The Last Kingdom. Full of Viking culture, adventure, history, and romance. Warning: violent battle scenes.”
