Christmas is the perfect time to snuggle up and watch lots of TV shows and movies.
And some viewers said they found one Netflix episode so binge-worthy that they’ve already watched it four times.
Calling the series a “work of art,” one Netflix viewer felt the show was completely underrated when it first launched on the platform.
He said, “I have watched this series four times already. It’s a work of art and it doesn’t get the credit it deserves.”
“This is a really fantastic mini-series. Highly recommended,” said another, while a third added, “Sooo good.”
The fourth said: “I watched many years ago [and] thought it was brilliant, I liked it. [I] totally agree, well done.
It’s about the series. maidin which Margaret Qualley, along with her real-life mom Andie MacDowell, plays a young mother who finds a job cleaning houses.
The ten-part series tells the story of Alex, who decides to leave her emotionally abusive partner Sean and start a better life with her young daughter.
However, this decision is hard work and certainly not an easy one, as Alex faces pointless bureaucracy, lack of money or housing, and a toxic relationship with his mother.
She finds work as a cleaning lady and the series documents her struggles against her former partner and his forced control of her.
But while it is certainly a difficult and emotional hour at times, fans have praised maid at the time of its release in 2021 for daring to expose these serious and real problems.
In a lengthy Facebook post, one fan wrote: “maid on Netflix… perhaps one of the most important series in history. Yeah. I said it.
Why is it so important to talk about domestic violence? This is important because despite the fact that women are the victims, domestic violence carries this terrible stigma even in 2021.
“This is important because rapists often come across as great guys in public. The victim’s family loves them and they often protect the abuser, leaving the victim without a support system.”
She continued: “This series is important because women who leave abusers often have children and have no income other than the abusers, leaving them isolated and financially deprived.
“This series is important because it deals with the realistic nightmarish challenges of navigating social services, subsidized day care and housing.
“This series masterfully shows all these things, which makes it a real gem.”
