My favorite series from 2022life
Here are several streaming series that I really enjoyed this year. (no spoilers)
Crash Landing on You
The premise: an heiress is paragliding when a windstorm blows her into North Korea, and an army officer tries to get her home without triggering an international incident. I became so emotionally invested in this beautiful love story and also in some of the side characters. 💖
Bee and Puppycat
Follows the adventures of Bee and Puppycat, who work for an intergalactic temp agency. It's very chill and fun, and the art is so cute. The creator Natasha Allegri also worked on the greatest animated series of all time, Adventure Time, and was a writer on the incredible Cannon Busters.
Extraordinary Attorney Woo
Woo Young-woo is an extremely capable and knowledgeable lawyer who also autistic. She starts her first job at a large law firm, and this show follows her as she takes on her first cases & makes new friends.
Los Espookys is like an inverted Scooby Doo—instead of unmasking fake monsters, a group of gay goth friends are hired to dress up as the monsters and scare people themselves. It's an absurd and wildly creative horror-comedy.
Lumon's office workers can sever their consciousness to create another version of themselves that goes to work on their behalf. It's a Kafkaesque corporate sci-fi thriller, where the corporate world is ubiquitious, disorienting, and, at times, nightmarish. *cue the Defiant Jazz* 🎷
A footnote: technically the last season of Crash Landing on You came out in 2020. But I watched both seasons this year.
