Not sure what happened, but it used it be that series were about positive things, like poor black people from the east coast moving to their rich family up west enjoying sarcastic English butlers. Or a bunch of friends and family living in New York where the biggest worries of their lives is to hide them hooking up with each other from those friends and family members.
Today, however, we have series about Chemistry teachers diagnosed with cancer, or teenage girls killing themselves. The latter is the concept of the Netflix series “Thirteen Reasons Why”. I can definitely recommend it, but honestly it is hard to watch.
Sidenote… how a millenial listens to casette tapes and managers to never put it in the wrong side up, is amazing. I’m from the last generation that actually used these and I must admit I was not capable of that.
