Netflix has released a series of Chinese Dramas that have surpassed expectations, such as Meteor Garden and The Rise of Phoenixes. One of their new releases, Take My Brother away is no different. The story takes place in Shanghai, China and follows Shi Miao and her relationship with her pestering brother, Shi Fen. The drama consists of 30 episodes, set at 45 minutes a piece.

The two siblings attend Normal High School and deal with everyday issues such as tests, crushes, and making friends. They also deal with their alcoholic father who is never at home and skips out on the rent. Despite their issues, the two engage in odd activities to earn petty cash, such as beauty contests, and gambling. The show puts a comedic spin on the situation to make it amusing and surreal. The story overall engages all characters, not just the main ones. The relationship between Shi Miao and Shi Fen reminds its audience of what it’s like to have siblings. The show leaves a good impression and makes people wish there was more than 30 episodes.
