Are you a fan of the Swedish/Danish TV series The Bridge (Broen), and now you are looking for a similar TV series that you can watch? Do you have a Netflix subscription?
There are probably many TV series you could consider if you are looking for something similar to The Bridge. If you haven’t seen The Bridge yet, it is still available in quite a lot of Netflix regions, so go ahead and watch it first. But, what should you watch if you want more after finishing the fourth season of The Bridge?
I do not have tons of series to recommend, but I have just discovered one Korean TV series on Netflix named Stranger! I accidentally heard about Stranger by someone who recommended Stranger Things to a friend on Netflix. The friend misunderstood, and instead of watching Stranger Things, they started to watch the Korean series named Stranger. They enjoyed it and reported back to their friend that Stranger was a great recommendation. I read about this in an article and decided to watch a couple of Stranger episodes myself.
More about Stranger
Stranger was a giant success, not only in Korea, but it has also been a big international success. It stars Cho Seung-woo and Bae Doo-na. The latter is someone you might recognize from her roles in Jupiter Ascending and Cloud Atlas. Stranger was even featured on a list of the best TV series of 2017 in New York Times.
In the TV series, we meet a prosecutor who is set to meet up with someone in a flat. Upon arrival, he quickly understands that something is wrong and he finds the person dead on his floor. He quickly looks around, and at this moment, I felt like I was watching Sherlock Holmes at work. He noticed lots of details, and it at once gained my interest.
Later, we can see how the prosecutor doesn’t have the easiest personality. It is hard to get to know him, and he doesn’t say much to anyone. But, he finds trust and a co-worker in the police officer who is played by Bae Doo-na. Together they dig into the case to find out what has really happened, but they need to tread carefully because lots of people in high positions are involved in the plot (at least so it seems).
Stranger on Netflix
You can stream Stranger in quite a lot of Netflix regions, so most likely, you will not need to change your Netflix region in order to watch it. The first season consists of 16 episodes, and most episodes last for 66 minutes. In other words, you have around 18 hours of TV watching ahead of you if you want to stream the full first season of Stranger on Netflix.
I can warmly recommend it!
