New Netflix series Beef has 100% Rotten Tomatoes score and is already been called one of its best ever shows
| Last updated
With the bank holiday weekend here, there's a high probability that we'll all be watching more Netflix this weekend, thanks to the extra two days off work.
And if you are bored of the classics and nothing new is taking your fancy, then you might want to try out the newest comedy to hit the streaming platform, Beef.
While it is a comedy, Beef starts off rather destructively with the aftermath of a road rage incident between two strangers.
Danny Cho (Steven Yeun), a failing contractor with a chip on his shoulder, goes head-to-head with Amy Lau (Ali Wong), a person living a rather different picturesque life as a self-made entrepreneur.
An official synopsis from Netflix adds: "The increasing stakes of their feud unravel their lives and relationships in this darkly comedic and deeply moving series."
Beef was created by Lee Sung Jin, who is arguably best known for Silicon Valley, while a great cast also join him on set.
Alongside Yeun and Wong in the leading roles, the rest of the cast is comprised by Joseph Lee, Young Mazino, David Choe and Patti Yasutake.
If you are planning on watching the comedy while tucking into your Easter eggs this weekend, then it seems you will certainly be in for a treat - and that is not just from the chocolate!
Because Beef currently sits at a perfect 100 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, meaning it is a must-see for all Netflix subscribers.
And despite only being out for a matter of hours, the show is already been labelled as one of the best shows on the streaming platform, with critics and viewers loving the series.
One outlet to give the series maximum marks is USA Today, whose review read: "Magnificent and maniacal, an utterly unique story that spins the everyday into the epic."
Meanwhile, The Playlist's read review had similar praises, writing: "Much like the characters themselves, it is a series that is wrapped in an angry outer shell that reveals itself to have a compassionate inside that can either break free or be obliterated.
"Even as you never know which will end up coming to pass, you’re locked in for the ride."
The Hollywood Reporter praised Yeun and Wong's 'spectacular' performances.
Adding: "Each joke grows from characters performed and written so vividly, they seem to leap off the screen."
And viewers online are calling it '10/10' and 'one of the best shows you'll watch all year'.
Some very high praise indeed.
