You’ll binge White Lines in record time. When you’re ready for your next trashy crime caper, we’ve got you.
Is it any surprise Netflix viewers are binging the heck out of a trashy crime caper series from the creator of Money Heist?
White Lines is set in Ibiza and follows the sister of a “legendary Manchester DJ” after his body is discovered 20 years after his disappearance. As she begins to investigate his death, she’s drawn into the “thrilling world of dance clubs, lies and cover-ups” “in a place where people live life on the edge.” The show plays out with two timelines: The first following the DJ’s arrival and heyday in Ibiza in the ’90s and the murder mystery of the present day.
The Guardian describes the show as “filled with sex, double-crosses, drugs, DJs, and loads of violence” concluding it is “one crazy, terribly trashy ride” and a “massive amount of fun.” So again, we ask: Is it any surprise White Lines has been binge-watch no. 1 (well, technically, binge-watch no. 4 as of this writing) this weekend?
You will go from “What is White Lines?” to “What I can watch that’s like White Lines” before you know it and when that time comes, we’ve got you covered.
5. Money Heist
Length: 4 seasons
Short sell: This is the obvious, easy recommendation, as its from the same creator of White Lines and also full of sex, lies and violence in the Mediterranean. The disclaimer here is, of course, that Money Heist is a Spanish-language drama so you either need to understand Spanish, read subtitles or embrace dubbing to make Money Heist your White Lines follow-up.
Eight thieves take hostages and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain as a criminal mastermind manipulates the police to carry out his plan.
