This article discusses 5 Reasons to watch the Netflix series Thai Cave Rescue and does not contain any major spoilers.
Thai Cave Rescue is a six-part limited series that will soon be on Netflix. It’s not been as heavily promoted as some of Netflix’s other releases, so below are five reasons why you should definitely check the show out!
5 Reasons to watch Thai Cave Rescue
Reason 1. True Story
Thai Cave Rescue is based on the real-life story of how 12 members of a junior association football team and their assistant coach became trapped in a cave in northern Thailand due to heavy rainfall. It proved nearly impossible to rescue them. And the series will follow the rescue mission and give us a chance to see whether it was successful or not.
Reason 2. Short & Bingeable
There are only 6 episodes, so it shouldn’t be too much to watch. However, some of the episodes are more than an hour long, so keep that in mind.
Reason 3. It’s a complete story (hopefully).
As the show is a limited series, it should be a finished and complete story by the end of the series finale. I think it will be unlikely for the show to leave us on a cliffhanger. So we should finish the show fully satisfied that a well-rounded story has been told in the six episodes.
Reason 4. It’s an American and Thai production.
The events of the cave rescue occurred in Thailand. And naturally, that should mean a Thailand TV company has some involvement in the show. That’s not always the case. But luckily, with Thai Cave Rescue, that’s exactly what’s happened.
Reason5. Features Members of the Wild Boars
Whilst there have been past productions on the rescue mission, Thai Cave Rescue is the first feature with access to the football team, the Wild Boars. As a result, the show is said to feature the cave rescue from their perspective. And if this is done correctly, it could make for a hard-hitting, emotional version. With the series being based on a true event, it gets no better than featuring true encounters from the very people involved.
