Would highly recommend watching the show "The Glory". Strong warning for depictions of violent bullying.

This show is recommended and was very popular with 20- and 30-year olds who felt the show resonated strongly with their experiences working in corporate jobs.

Misaeng: Incomplete Life was the first Korean drama to film on location in Jordan, where actors Im Si-wan and Lee Sung-min shot the series's prologue in Amman, Petra, and Wadi Rum

The first* series ran from 1978–1990 (IMBD 8.4/10). There is an 8 episode remake in 2020 on Masterpiece (IMBD 8.4/10). It was televised in most of Europe and there was an increase in applications to vet schools because of it.

The trailer for the 2020 version with eng subs is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZzFjeQFpro

The original series can be watched on Youtube with auto-generated eng subs here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSOFQwqa22E&list=PLFoVinyuctAoS2zKnm8aPGMQlhgnGKogR&index=1

The original show can be watched in German here (Der Doktor und das liebe Vieh):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP6Ck_0Gn1o&list=PLp0NTLuZVbiQ-W0eXWFq11lC0WlguPnqd

*The original (1978 to 1980, based directly on James Herriot's books) was for three series; the second (1988 to 1990, filmed with original scripts but generally regarded as a continuation of the 1978 series) for four.

This show is a nice break from all the action & intense shows that seem to be more common now. Would really recommend checking it out!

The plot was partially motivated by the Chilean student protests in 2011.

A french canadian drama about a hostage situation, started from trying to save a factory from being relocated. There's also lots of underlying drama and backstory too.

It is an artsy european show. The patriarch is played by Udo Kier, a famous Austrian actor. I watched the show on Netflix.

This is a German historical drama about the Roman Empire's occupation of Germany (at the time Germania Magna, a region between the Elbe and the Rhine) during 9 AD. The tribes face heavy taxes and demands for tribute and therefore aim to create a unified Germanic resistance. The show is in German/Latin on Netflix with english subtitles and other languages.

This is not an accurate rendition of the Roman-Germanic wars.

IMBD rating 7.2/10 (27K votes)

2 seasons making 12 episodes total.

Korea has conscription for men; this show is about the reality of some enlistees during their time. It's a highly rated/recommended show.

Warning: scenes of suicide & bullying.
