Don’t miss out on Russian Doll
The first season of Russian Doll is more of a time loop. Natasha Lyonne’s character relives the same day over and over again. There are signs of things dying around her, meaning that she only has a limited amount of loops to get out of it.
The second season changes that. Characters end up in the past, and they need to figure things out there instead. There are trips back to just after World War II as the main characters figure out family secrets in Germany and Budapest.
This series is more than just a bit of time travel fun. The characters go through some of the best growth possible, and we can take a few life lessons from them along the way.
Russian Doll is on Netflix.
Finish off with Kindred
There’s a great series that originally aired on FX that you’ll want to check out. Sadly, it only ran for one season, but it is based on a book of the same name by Octavia E. Butler. Kindred takes us back and forth to a 19th century plantation. You’ve watched enough Outlander set in the colonies to know what that means.
This series follows Dana, a young aspiring writer who has left her home behind to move to Los Angeles. However, she ends up being pulled back in time to 19th century Maryland. And yes, she is a Black author, pulling her back to the time of slavery.
While in the past, Dana meets one of her ancestors, a proud, free Black woman. There is also a white planter, who ends up getting tangled up in Dana’s time traveling story.
Kindred is available to stream on Hulu.
