“A big-city dentist opens up a practice in a close-knit seaside village, home to a charming jack-of-all-trades who is her polar opposite in every way.”

Must-Watch Highlight of the Week

Clickbait (Limited Series)

If you only have time to watch one title this week, check out Clickbait. Blowing on social media and rising in the Netflix top 10s, this limited series is compared to a longer episode of Black Mirror given it covers the potentially darker side of technology.

The series carries a 7.3 on IMDb and follows a family man who is abducted and it’s up to his family to find out who captured him.
