Samurai Gourmet

This past Sunday I binged the entire season of Samurai Gourmet, a new series that was just added to Netflix. It’s a Japanese series that tells the story of a 60-year-old man who just entered retirement, and starts enjoying his post-work life through the lens of simple joys that he rediscovers, which pretty much all resolve around eating good food, while enjoying a good beer. I love this show to death — I think it’s because I’m completely going to be this guy at that point in my life (and I already tend to enjoy food the way he does). This is one of my new favorite series, and I really hope they make a second season.
