There is no way you could have explored the show if you consume it in your language. Let the subtitles work because it will be just like reading a book, you won’t feel someone spoon-feeding you answers, but you discover the story on your own.   PS: My opinion is don’t decide to watch a show on basis of what awards it had received.

Decide on your own, Oscars/Grammys are not the one that decides, the audience is the one who will.

When you have a great taste in art/comedy/movies/shows/music/writing/poem you can filter out what actually art is and what was a stereotype. Stereotypes are not actually hard to identify, you can pred
