Transatlantic: Full Season 1
April 11, 2023 2:23 PM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

Two Americans and their allies form a scrappy rescue operation in 1940 Marseilles to help artists, writers and other refugees fleeing Europe during WWII.

Transatlantic is a seven-part Netflix series based on the novel The Flight Portfolio, itself based on the true story of the Emergency Rescue Committee.

I really enjoyed this because (1) it somehow managed to be a little lighter than its source material and (2) I knew nothing about the ERC. Now I do.

Yeah, I'm enjoying this as well. The humour makes the weight of the subject matter a little easier to handle.

I also am very glad that I don't start every morning being cross examined by Hannah Arendt about what I got up to last night.

The making-of short for this contained some interesting information, btw.
