Netflix has just dropped its latest thriller drama, White Lines. The show promises an eclectic mix of murder, drugs, sex and partying and the reviews of White Lines look as though it’s provided all that and then some.

White Lines is from the creators of Money Heist and The Crown and is a murder mystery with added sun, sex and drugs

White Lines is a ten-episode series which is split between Manchester and the Balearic Islands. It’s all about a British DJ, Axel, who was brutally murdered in Ibiza and his sister Zoe’s investigation into his death, 20 years on. The series is written by Álex Pina, the creator of Netflix series Money Heist.

A body is found in Ibiza and is discovered to be that of Axel, who has been missing for two decades. Zoe then returns to the island to find out the truth. But obviously, there are loads of twists and turns and she begins to feel suspicious of those closest to her brother. Her investigation leads her through the wild world of clubs, lies and cover-ups, forcing her to confront the darker sides of her own character in a place where people live life on the edge.

The Netflix synopsis for the show says: “Zoe Walker leaves her quiet life behind to investigate her brother’s disappearance in Ibiza, where she quickly heads down a decadent and dangerous path.”

Reviews are calling White Lines ‘bananas’, ‘proper good’ and a ‘surefire hit’

The show is getting a lot of good reviews, and has been called the next break through Netflix hit of the summer. Digital Spy added that it’s the next “surefire hit” and “bananas”, all filmed  “in a sickeningly sun-drenched setting”. TVGuide called it “absurdly excessive” and the weekend’s “most fun binge”.

The Guardian said: “Simply put, White Lines is a massive amount of fun” and added in another review that it is “proper good”. NME added that the series is “brilliant”, “bonkers”, “gripping” and “totally off the wall”.

And the show has got the seal of approval from Twitter too. With viewers describing it as “freaking insane”, “so fucked up it’s brilliant” and “superb”.

I think your weekend plans are sorted.
