*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Anyone who knows me can attest to my love of Spanish dramas. After watching Netflix’s Elite and Who Killed Sara? in one sitting each (yes, I’ll admit it), I’m always on the lookout for my next binge-watch. So, when I heard of the new Apple TV+ thriller series, Now & Then, I knew I had to check it out.
The 8-episode series focuses on six college friends who were hoping to have a weekend of fun after their graduation. However, one fatal accident results in the death of their friend. Together, they make a pact to never speak of the accident again. Now, 20 years later, a mysterious blackmailer sends them all an ominous text message—threatening to expose what happened that night.
I know what you’re thinking: This sounds exactly like the slasher film, I Know What You Did Last Summer. But, unlike a masked killer targeting teenagers with a hook, Now & Then plays on a number of real-life themes that makes it sooo much better than the ‘90s horror classic.
