The serial world is an ocean full of fish that are impossible to notice in their singularity. Each of these has its own color, but tends to blend into the abyss of a backdrop so vast as to be frightening. For this reason, we often remain afloat, next to everything we already know. They are titles characterized by a strong quality and a unique talent of their kind: they know how to obscure everything that gravitates around us. But now, you’ll agree, it’s time to stop being so selective, and to open ourselves to the serial world in all its totality, capturing any of its nuances. All it takes is a little patience to understand how many wonderful fish swim inside. We know how complex this is: you always hear the same titles around, and looking for something new is often complicated, but this is where we come in. Every Friday evening, in fact, we will entertain you with a column che will advise you of the TV series to see of which, perhaps, you’ve never heard of, that you don’t remember or that I’ve only seen. So take pen and paper, and get ready to start a journey into a seriality that has been too often hidden and mistreated.
From School Spirits to Heels: here are 7 TV series to watch that (maybe) you’ve never heard of
1) Copenhagen Cowboy
Copenhagen Cowboy is one of the Netflix gems that has gone unnoticed the most. Thanks to the total absence of sponsorship, the series signed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, The Neon Demon, Pusher) has remained in the general silence of the platform even now that several months have passed since its distribution. Anyone who loves the cinema of Lars Von Trier and Lanthimos would also probably love this production it brings into the platform independent cinema. The noir thriller we are about to tell you about actually tells the story of a heroine who moves in a Denmark with an almost suffocating, distressing atmosphere, made up of warm colors and the director’s typical sophistication. Copenhagen Cowboy is everything that no one had ever seen in the panorama of TV series, and probably this thing can terrify anyone who is faced with such an evident change. However, trying to give it a chance will finally give you a different experience that you absolutely shouldn’t deprive yourself of.
