Lucha Underground (Season 1)

Right now I’m incredibly addicted to watching the first season of Lucha Underground¬†— I’m currently on episode 31 of 39 (they have the first 2 seasons on Netflix). I watched it for the first time back in 2015 while I was still in Japan, and was enjoying it at that time as well, but then stopped around episode 9 or 10 (probably in part due to the move). Getting back into it, I’m just reminded of how much fun it is, and how it scratches the pro wrestling itch I still have occasionally, but that I can’t get scratched from checking in again on WWE (there’s too much of it, and I just don’t care for most of the current roster, and I find most of the matches boring to watch). Lucha Underground has super fun (and silly) stories (and I like that they’re shot in a slick “TV drama” way), the high-flying action is truly exciting to watch, and I just can’t get enough of it.
