With over 1,500 hours of original series and movies released by Netflix, getting lost between the good and bad can be time consuming. I have been able to pinpoint two series that appeal to me — an accounting and finance major who enjoys cooking.

The Final Table

 This series is a culinary competition that takes twelve chefs and tests them on an iconic dish from countries like Mexico, USA, and Japan. With a judging panel of celebrities and food critics from the country being represented that episode, the series is fast-paced and continually catching your attention. I have watched seasons of Chopped my senior year and was yearning for something new. I always enjoy the types of shows for learning new dishes and picking up tips and tricks for cooking along the way. The show mainly focuses on the cooking without the curtain of drama that gets in the way within some shows.

 

Dirty Money

 This docuseries explores fraud and corruption at the corporate level in multinational companies. Right off the bat, the show will reminisce American Greed detailing motives behind illegal actions and how they did it. As a business student, I am captivated by this show especially in the sense that I can witness firsthand the material and jargon I learn in the classroom being displayed on a Netflix series. With episodes ranging from Volkswagen, to Mexican Cartels using American banks, to even maple syrup, it amazes me how most of these huge scandals went unnoticed by me before I developed my accounting and finance background, despite being within the last decade.
