Friday Fave


I'm trying something new (to blog a bit more spontaneously) and drop a quick post about something I loved from the week on Fridays.

I'm kicking it off with a rec for the fantastic Netflix series - Lupin

"Inspired by the adventures of Arsene Lupin, gentleman thief Assane Diop (Omar Sy) sets out to avenge his father for an injustice inflicted by a wealthy family."

French (subtitled), 5 episodes, Season 1


It's hard to put in a genre box but Lupin is clever, fun!, flirty, twisty and oh so addictive. 

At 5 episodes it's the perfect binge show. Omar Sy's name is being thrown out there as a possibility for the next James Bond and all I can say to that is YES!!! He definitely gives off that vibe.

Warning: There's a cliffie (I just saw that this will be a 5 part series) but it wasn't a killer cliffie - IMO. I'll be happy to give you a heads up in more detail if you want to know.

  6. I love this show! I stumbled upon it and enjoyed it immensely. Shocking the series has so few episodes. I'm dying to see it continued. Good post!

    1. Wasn't it great?!

      I hope they already have a S@ lined up. I read there will be 5 but that the next season won't be until next year. That would be sad since it was just the 5 eps.

  10. I'm surprised Netflix never showed me this. It pushed Bridgerton at me so hard that I finally gave in last week and watched it. I almost binged the whole season in a day. LoL
