Best TV Shows to Watch on Netfix: Jimmy

Photo Credit: (

Jimmy: The True Story of a True Idiot, is one of the funniest shows I have ever watched; however, it may not be a show for everyone.

You should watch the first episode of Jimmy, and if you like it, you will love the rest of the show; however, after the first episode, you will also definitely be able to tell if this style of humor is not for you. Some of the jokes are very crude, and it could be offputting for certain viewers.

The show is based on the life of Jimmy Onishi, a Japanese comedian; I have never heard of him, but if even 10% of the show is true, he has had an incredibly interesting life. Also, Akiyoshi Nakao, the actor who plays Jimmy, does an incredible acting job. The character is super difficult to play, but Nakao pulls it off effortlessly.

The show also touches upon Onishi’s relationship with his mentor, Sanma Akashiya. This character development ensures that it is not just a comedy; there is actual emotion and a plot to the story as well.

There are only 9 episodes in the series, but I wish there were more; each episode is 45 minutes to an hour, but all 9 were extremely funny in my opinion. The show is only getting 6.4/10 on IMBD, so the humor is not for everyone; still, if you have similar taste in shows to me, I think this will be one of your favorites.

Jimmy Recommendation Rating: 4.5

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
