The good ones are the ones that Netflix has bought off (...) or a co-production
So? As long as they're available on Netflix and I can watch them - I don't care :P
all national character and nuance is stripped from the story, apart from a superficial way
I'm not sure what you mean, tbh... I wouldn't say that about some of the TV series that are available on Netflix, like, for example: "Fauda" (Israeli), "The Spy"(French-American, with Sacha Baron Cohen as the main lead), Börü/Wolf (Turkish), "Służby specjalne" directed by Patryk Vega... Also, there are good fantasy and sci-fi TV series where national character doesn't really matter that much (even if it's inspired by some cultures): "The Witcher", "Shadow and Bone" (based on books, of course, like any good stuff, the world seems to be heavily inspired by tsarist Russia among others - pretty unusual and, thus, interesting :)) or those new Star Trek series ("Star Trek: Discovery")...
Actually I just heard the third polish Netflix series, Sexify, is not too bad
Thanks, I'll try to check it out :)
@amiga500, I forgot to ask - what is that multicultural TV station that you mentioned called? I have such a TV channel on cable TV, it's called Ale kino+. It usually shows more ambitious films and TV series from different countries. I've watched there Australian miniseries "Picnic at Hanging Rock" (with Natalie Dormer), for example.
