Queen Sono, Netflix
This is Netflix’s first Original African series. It’s a pacey, stylish, action-filled spy series. It’s a South African production – but shot all through the continent. Sono is like a black female Bond and Jackie Chan, and there are many Tarantino twists about this. If anything it’s more raw and stylish than Bond, and her African hairstyles – well I’d be surprised if there is not a blog dedicated entirely to them. Fight scenes that are rarely seen in a female led series, plenty of humour and Pearl Thusi is pretty amazing. Some of the dialogue seemed a little bit Americanised.
