Netflix has had great success with its international offerings, with Spanish crime drama Money Heist and German sci-fi thriller Dark among its standout series, but nothing could have prepared the world for South Korea’s Squid Game. The dark, surprisingly emotional high-concept drama about down-and-out citizens who compete in a series of deadly children’s games for the chance to win a fortune became the streaming giant’s most-watched series within a month of its debut and inspired a global fanbase. In other words, it’s a great series for another heated installment of Binge Battle.
