With the weather reportedly getting bad this weekend, I guess it will be another binge weekend with shows either recommended, or that look interesting. If your family is like ours, many winter weekends are spent with a good show and even better snacks. This weekend we are checking out a show that is turning out to be very much like Queen of the South.

If you like cartels, corruption, and the drama and the feel of a 'novela,' you will love Monarca. The story of the Carranza family, a wealthy family that makes tequila and whose drama is never ending. Season 1 of the show began in 2019 and the 2nd season was just released days ago. It is one of the most popular shows on Netflix, so we decided to give it a shot. Needless to say, we are hooked!

Not just because we love our tequila but because we were having Queen of the South withdrawals and this show is somewhat similar, plus it is in Spanish. If you don't mind a series with subtitles, this is a good one. Plus, I know one way to get Leo interested, Salma Hayek is the executive producer! I had been seeing her posts on the 'gram about this particular show and assumed it was a new one she was starring in? Nope. She is behind the scenes. Most of the actors are relatively unknown but likable either way. If you are looking for a new show to watch, and don't want to start one with several seasons, this one is barely into season 2, very easy to catch up.
