Christmas is the perfect time to snuggle up and binge-watch plenty of TV shows and movies.
And some viewers have said that they’ve found one Netflix series that’s so binge-worthy that they’ve already watched it four times.
Calling the series a ‘work of art’, one Netflix viewer believed the show was completely undervalued when it was first launched on the platform.
He said: “I've watched this series four times now. It is a work of art and doesn't get the appreciation it deserves.”
“It really is a fantastic mini-series. Highly recommend,” said another, while a third added: “Soooo SO good.”
A fourth said: “Watched it ages ago [and] thought it was brilliant, I loved it. [I] totally agree, brilliant.”
The series in question is Maid, in which Margaret Qualley stars alongside her real-life mum Andie MacDowell as a young mother who finds a job cleaning houses.
The ten-part series follows the story of Alex – who chooses to leave her emotionally abusive partner Sean and start a better life with her toddler daughter.
However, this decision takes a lot of strength and certainly isn’t easy, as Alex faces pointless bureaucracy, a lack of cash or housing, and a toxic relationship with her mother.
She finds herself finding work as a cleaner, with the series documenting her struggle against her ex-partner and his coercive control over her.
But while it is certainly a difficult and emotional watch at times, fans praised Maid during its release in 2021 for having the confidence to bring to light these serious and real issues.
In a lengthy post on Facebook, one fan wrote: “Maid on Netflix... is possibly one of the most important series in history. Yep. I said it.
“Why is talking about domestic violence so important? It's important because even though women are the victims, domestic violence carries this terrible stigma even in 2021.
"It's important because abusers are often publicly great guys. The victim’s family loves them and they will often defend the abuser, leaving the victim without a support system."
She continued: "This series is important because women leaving an abusers often have children and no income outside of the abusers, leaving them isolated and financially bereft.
"This series is important because it deals with the realistic nightmare challenges of navigating the social services system, subsidised daycare and housing.
“This series shows all of these things masterfully which makes it a real gem.”
