Review of the Netflix series ‘Sue Perkins: Perfectly Legal’ – Aventura por América Latina

Sue Perkins: Perfectly Legal is a documentary mini-series that premiered on Netflix in 2022. The host, Susan Elizabeth Perkins, is an icon of British comedy, famous on “The Great British Baking Show.”

The 50-year-old woman doesn’t want to feel trapped as she enters middle age. She embarks on a journey full of adventures and explores several Latin American countries. This series does not offer us the basic aura of a travel series/show. She doesn’t take us through the food culture of Latin America or the beautiful places that she has. The program has focused on the locals and has tried to capture strange facts or customs of the country that are unknown to the rest of the world. So this show is all about the host experiencing some strange cultures and cults along with dangerous experiences, which are sure to give us an adrenaline rush.

The series consists of three episodes and can be classified as a series of mini-adventures with a duration of 38-45 minutes. In each episode, the host covers two or three countries and tries to give an insight into their cultural facts and beliefs and something peculiar they practice. Throughout the entire series, we see this 50-year-old man who wants to escape middle age and experience wild things like death cults, etc.

Since each episode, the presenter goes through different places, the series never tends to be boring or monotonous. The series has tried to offer something that could be new to the audience and therefore also very interesting. This documentary series, of course, is different from the usual travel shows, which only focus on touristy things to do in the country. This show is more experience based and also brings to light facts that we may not even be able to think about. The series is like a challenge for the host and it is also good content for the viewers.

Sue Perkins- Perfectly Legal, therefore she goes around Latin America experiencing weird things that are legal in her areas. It is one of those series that can entertain you to the core. For people who love to watch and learn about different countries and their cultures and cults, this show is a masterpiece in that area. The program will give you a virtual tour of these countries, but not because of their beauty, instead it will show you everything real, including the normal things among the locals. It’s a great show to be on your watch list since it’s a miniseries and it’s a good choice for a weekend binge!

Final score – [7.5/10]
