Chinese Netflix Recommendations?

Any recommendations for good Mandarin shows on Netflix to help with learning? Hopefully not just romance, although I did learn 闭嘴 from Meteor Garden :smile:

The Legend of Bruce Lee is good. Simple plot lines and dialog with subtitles. Good production quality.

I hear good things about Ancient Love Song, but I haven’t watched it. I watched some of the good old Taiwanese Dramas like Meteor Garden before Netflix even existed, but those are with traditional characters. Nevertheless, I can recommend 海豚湾恋人 and especially 战神 for those that want to see some pre Netflix shows, you can find that on Youtube.

Hi Gavin,

I know some Chinese dramas on Netflix might be good for learning Chinese.

Empresses in the Palace 后宫·甄嬛传
The Rise of Phoenixes 天盛长歌
Day and Night 白夜追凶
Here to Heart 温暖的弦

Hope these are what you are looking for.

For Taiwanese 國語/台語, I cannot recommend 花甲男孩轉大人 or “A Boy Named Flora A” enough! Its a slice of life show about a young Taiwanese man living in the city who gets called back to his ancestral home when his grandmother falls ill. Prepare a box of tissues.
