There’s so much binge-watching going on right now that it might seem like you’ve already watched just about everything that’s good. But the Netflix library is actually way deeper than it might seem from a casual scroll of recommended titles. It would be a shame to miss out on some of the exciting and atmospheric shows produced around the world, just because their names aren’t familiar on first glance. It’s a great big world out there, and traveling in both time and space to the worlds of “Babylon Berlin” or “Terrace House” is one way to feel like you’re experiencing a different culture without leaving the house.

Hits like “Parasite” have convinced even the most skeptical viewers that, rather than something to be avoided, subtitles are the gateway to a great big world of engrossing entertainment. So it’s time to dig a little deeper and check out the edgy thrillers, addictive dramas and deliciously different reality shows available on Netflix from Mexico, France, Spain, Korea, Japan, Germany and many more countries. Plus, it never hurts to brush up on those high school language classes and develop some cross-cultural savoir-faire.
