What To Watch On Netflix Around the World

Stamp your binge-watching passport with our picks for the top foreign shows to check out on a silent night anywhere in the world.

Ah, the holidays. A time to spend quality time with friends and family, gathered together for epics meals, music, and a celebration of the life and love you all share. But what about after that? When you’re all still stuck under the same roof, scarfing down leftovers and openly testing the social boundaries of how early you can slip Bailey’s in your coffee? When all that’s left to talk about is religion, politics, and The Force Awakens? All that holiday magic has led to you, sitting in an itchy new sweater, hearing people you share a bloodline with espousing the virtues of Donald Trump and/or Jar Jar Binks. You need a distraction. Fast.


Of course, there is plenty of entertainment to catch up on that you may have missed in 2015, but why not use the holidays as an excuse to expand your binge-watching borders? All you need is a good catalog of international Netflix options, maybe a VPN service, and a penchant for subtitles.

Check out the slideshow above for our 10 picks to stamp your binge-watching passport.
