Lupin (season 1 – eps 1-5) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Writers: George KayFrançois UzanFlorent Meyer  Cast: Omar SyVincent LondezAntoine Gouy 

Right from the start you know you’ll be in for a rollercoaster of action, thrills and suspense. The first half of season one (5 episodes so far) hardly ever disappoints, always playing with the audience’s expectations with perfect misdirections and genuine twists. I won’t go too much into the plot as the best way to experience this is to know very little about it. Let’s just say that it starts with a plan to steal a priceless necklace from the Louvre…of all places!
Clever and fun, it also looks really lavish (all the stuff around the Louvre in Paris in the first episodes is really quite impressive) ad slick. This is as bingeable, entertaining and addictive as TV series can get and with the massive cliffhanger at the end of the last episodes I can hardly wait until next April when the second half f the series is rumoured to be released.
It takes the best elements of Ocean’s 11, Luther, Sherlock Holmes and “Now You See Me” and makes it one of the first great tv series of the year (I only gave it 4 stars and not 5 because it’s only half season so far, but I have high hopes for the second half, as this has been consistently good!).

On Netflix Right now.
