The series Dash & Lily debuted on Netflix last Tuesday (10) and apparently has already conquered a good part of the platform’s subscribers. With a plot full of very charismatic characters and a festive Christmas atmosphere, the production was based directly on the novel The Challenge Book Dash & Lily, written by Rachel Cohn in partnership with David Levithan.
The figure in a notebook ends up being the guiding thread of a romance between two young adults who also bring with them several issues pertinent to this plot. And if you are one of those who already marathon the 8 available episodes, we made a list with 7 other series similar to Dash & Lily. Check out.
1) Sex Education
Available on Netflix with two seasons of 8 episodes each, Sex Education involves students from a typical UK school, in which there is a boy named Otis (played by Asa Butterfield) joining Maeve (Emma Mackey) to address the sexual problems of classmates.
However, there are many other interesting conflicts being presented, in addition to several themes considered taboo and which are portrayed in a unique way. As Dash & Lily, the production has a very interesting teen “freshness”, in addition to honesty and originality in each new approach.
two) Looking for Alaska
Based on a book by John Green, Looking for Alaska debuted last year by streaming Hulu and was developed by the same creators of The O.C. and gossip Girl. The miniseries presents an unexpected romance between two somewhat misfit teenagers, a tragedy and the union between several unlikely characters.
Somehow, the production manages to be exciting and insightful in the right measure, doing a beautiful job of adapting with its base material.
With 3 seasons already released and a 4th on the way, Atypical won over Netflix subscribers with its delicate yet deep plot. The story features a family composed of parents in crisis and their children. The main one is Sam, an autistic boy who is gradually discovering himself. Who can also be seen is Casey, his younger sister who is quite energetic.
The diverse relationships between the characters are the highlight of the narrative and show that we all go through problems. Atypical it still feeds the idea that little by little everything can be solved.
