Meal: the divine gluttony
The production focuses on Mexico and takes a tour of the delicious dishes of this country, but which are not healthy at all. Actually, they are all quite eccentric.
The first season has six chapters, in which the owners and workers of different places tell how they prepare some of their most striking dishes. And only in the trailer can viewers understand what they will find: “They will say that we are crazy in Mexico because of what we eat,” is heard in the first seconds of the preview. Later, preparations from another world appear, such as a hamburger with 15 floors of meat, a 50-centimeter hot dog, tacos inside a cake and desserts that no one would imagine.
Fraud: The Tinder scammer
simon leiev is the name used by the subject in question to meet women on the dating app, where he posed as the son of a billionaire diamond tycoon. Once he seduced his victims with a life of luxury, which included world travel and expensive gifts, he began to borrow money from them with the excuse that his life was in danger, he was persecuted by the diamond mafia and he had to manage paying in cash so as not to be tracked.
They, believing that they had met the man of their dreams, the Prince Charming of fairy tales, ran to the rescue of their beloved, delivering large sums that he squandered to dazzle his new victims. Obviously, the women, some deeply indebted, began to demand the return of the money, which, as they will be able to deduce, had already been spent.

Art: The Andy Warhol Diaries
From the hand of Ryan Murphyas executive producer, and, Andrew Rossy, as director, the six episodes of this miniseries take us through the life of the artist, drawing from his posthumously published diaries and through interviews with dozens of friends and collaborators. Although it is a golden opportunity to get to know Warhol better, the director part gives the premise that you will at least know the basics of his life and work. Thus, the documentary is much more interested in ideas, religion, philosophy, work and its relationship with the affective-sexual part of his life.
