‘Virgin River’ and other shows you may have missed on Netflix | Entertainment


Bridgerton and Squid game is making big impressions in 2021 (and rightfully so), but be sure to catch these series, which may not have made the headlines, but are just as worth watching.

Virgin river

Let’s go for a second chance! In this comfort food TV equivalent, nurse Melinda “Mel” Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) moves to the small town of Virgin River after losing her husband. She wins thorny new boss Doc Mullins (Tim Matheson), sails in love with bar owner and Navy veterinarian Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson, top left, with Breckenridge) and befriends people whose problems run deeper and darker than she thought. A little soap, a lot of hope. Seasons 1 to 3 available

The man with chestnuts (Tine Harden)

The man with chestnuts

Every moment of this Nordic noir thriller is filled with bizarre intrigue as Detective Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic) and her partner Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) investigate the grisly murders of women whose killer left hand-made figurines from chestnuts. To complicate their case: the fingerprints of another one murder victim, seemingly unrelated to these crimes, can be found on the little dolls. Season 1 available

Sweet tooth

Years after a virus wiped out much of humanity, a young human-animal hybrid named Gus (Christian Convery) sets out to find his mother in this magical adaptation of the DC Comics series. The startling show is filled with dazzling effects, deeply emotional performances, and a host of lovable allies who meet Gus along the way. A hero’s journey has never been so, well, sweet. Season 1 available

The vanquished

Spies, ex-Nazis and vicious criminal gangs are rampant in Allied-occupied Berlin after WWII, the setting for this tense drama. The series opens as haunted Brooklyn sleuth Max McLaughlin (Taylor Kitsch) arrives to help organize the motley police force, led by German policewoman Elsie Garten (Nina Hoss). But Max has a secret personal mission: to find his soldier brother AWOL Moritz (Logan Marshall-Green). Season 1 available

I think you should go with Tim Robinson

Incredibly awkward and unabashedly original, this series of comedy sketches from the old Saturday Night Live Writer and cast member Tim Robinson is a bonkers buffet of surreal (child bodybuilder ?!) skits that are as hilarious as they are hard to explain. You just have to sit down and soak up the weirdness to understand why we couldn’t Let this one off the list. Seasons 1-2 available
