Shtisel needs it's own thread

Mentioned on another.

I am enjoying the but it does show the orthodox men as drug addicted emotionally crippled messes. The women come off better.

Love the artist character and want him to find a nice young man.

Is Micheal who plays the artist gay? He comes across as very gay.

I've watched it up to episode 9 of season 2. Not too sure about the marriage between first cousins Akiva and Libby.

I just started watching this after binging Unorthodox over the weekend. The characters are all interesting and likeable and the younger granddaughter reminds me a lot of a young Natalie Portman in Leon. The father of the clan is very manipulative and basically ruined his sons lives. I also wonder how they make money since none of the children have real jobs. Akiva just started his new job as a teacher, but what about the others? The father said he bought them all apartments after their weddings (how did he finance that with a teacher's salary and in a big city like Jerusalem), but none of them really works. How these orthodox Jews finance their huge families is a total mystery since all they do is studying and most have no real qualifications.

This show is a great Israeli family drama and I'm greatful someone recommended it on the Unorthodox thread. It is really a hidden gem and I would have never found it on Netflix without DL.

Does anyone know the timeline of the show? The cell phones, TVs etc. look early 00s, but some characters also still use Walkmans and Cassette recorders.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
