If you are interested in music, the series of the Mexican singer Luis Miguel is one of the best musical series but also one of the best autobiographical series available. It is a non-fiction (and non-documentary) production with Diego Boneta as the main actor, giving life to Luis Miguel before becoming a world star. From its beginnings and childhood to 22 years of age in 13 very interesting episodes.
Luis Miguel’s series delves into and addresses the life of the Mexican star before he became what he is today, a worldwide success. A single season with 13 episodes in which Boneta will reveal, in fictional format, some details of his life unknown to the general public. But, in addition, it is a series with an interesting plot that engages and with a great execution that will make it ideal for everyone, even for those who are not a fan of Luis Miguel or his music. And if you are, it is expected that there will be a second season of the series that addresses life from the age of 22.

Freud is not a focused series with the intention that we follow it to the letter to learn about the life of its protagonist, who gives it its name. There are aspects that are real and others that are considered fiction licences. Set in 1886, the main character is a detective (something that never really happened) who uses his theories with the intention of finding out and investigating murders. The psychoanalyst is the protagonist of this story where we also see other historical figures such as Lou Andreas-Salome although she is “versioned” for fiction. Freud is not, therefore, a miniseries that is 100% true to reality, but it is an interesting and entertaining series that we can watch on Netflix with nuances and overtones of horror.
Episodes: One season, five episodes
Duration: Around 55 minutes per episode
