Netflix viewers are taking to social media to gush about a new Netflix series set in World War II.

If you’re friends with a cinephile or a serial binge-watcher then you may be used to being bombarded with recommendations.

However, there’s a new Netflix show - starring Hugh Laurie, Louis Hofmann and Marvel actor Mark Ruffalo - that the internet just can't stop raving about.

If you haven’t heard of All the Light We Cannot See yet, then watch the trailer below:

The mini-series, which dropped on the streaming platform earlier this month, is based on Anthony Doerr’s novel of the same name.

Written and developed by Steven Knight, the limited offering follows the parallel lives of two teenagers during the height of WWII.

The first is Marie-Laure LeBlanc (Aria Mia Loberti), a blind French girl who illegally broadcasts excerpts from a novel via radio.

Second is Werner Pfennig - a German radio operator who secretly listens to Marie-Laure, and is willing to kill to protect her.

The show, directed by Shawn Levy, features flashback moments and centres around a cursed diamond, known as the Sea of Flames.

Like most series, you have to wait until the final moments to find out what becomes of the pair. But trust us, it’s too good to miss.

Unfortunately, critics haven’t taken too kindly to All the Light We Cannot See.

At the time of writing, Levy’s series has a criminally-low 28 percent on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer

However, fans believe that this four-episode drama is worth the hype, and have given it an 82 percent audience score and an average 3.4 rating via Letterboxd.

Following the TV treat being added to Netflix on November 2, viewers have taken to Facebook to sing All the Light We Cannot See's praises.

In a group called ‘Netflix Recommendations 2023’, one user wrote: “Very very good, a strong 9/10, amazing, brilliant story, highly recommend you watch this limited series, only four episodes.”

Underneath the original post, another Facebook user said: “Absolutely amazing....loved it.”

“Agree, I really enjoyed this, so much I watched the 4 episodes in one sitting,” replied a third.

A sixth said that the mini-series was ‘extremely good’ while a seventh wrote they’d previously read the ‘excellent’ book.

All four episodes of All the Light We Cannot See are available to stream on Netflix now.
