Sometimes I feel like I can’t keep up with all the new shows and movies Netflix adds to their library, which means they ultimately end up on my Watchlist for months.
But something about their teen crime drama Elite had me feeling like I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to obsessively binge-watch it right away.
Ultimately, I realized I made the right choice, because by the time I reached the final episode, I looked a little something like this:
So, let me break down why I’m so hooked on Elite.
1. The plot:
2. The hot cast:
3. The love triangles:
Like, the couple experimenting with a third party in their relationship…
…and siblings crushing on the same girl.
4. The juicy secrets:
There’s these best friends on the path of destruction…
…and the girl whose life choices impacted many people around her.
5. The forbidden love stories:
The love-hate relationship between a driven Muslim woman honoring her beliefs and her pretentious classmate who struggles with change…
…and her brother who steps into unfamiliar territory.
6. The classic TV mean girl drama:
The animosity between Lu and Nadia, as they compete for top grades and a boy’s attention…
…and the crew that doesn’t know if they like or hate each other.
7. And finally, the MURDER MYSTERY. Yes, on top of all that there’s a murder that goes down too:
Wow, what a ride!
But despite the twists and turns, I would gladly go through it all again. And I will, because Elite was just picked up for a second season set to air next year.
See you in 2019!
