Desperately Seeking Soulmate: Escaping Twin Flames Universe - Official Trailer | Prime Video

If you caught the Netflix docuseries Escaping Twin Flames, one of the top trending shows this month on that streaming service, then you might be pleased to know that there’s another show that dives even deeper into the story of Jeff and Shaleia Divine and their organization Twin Flames Universe (TFU). Deemed by many to be a cult, TFU promises to help people find their one true love. However, this requires various online classes that can run in the thousands. Jeff and Shaleia, meanwhile, are not shy about flaunting their lavish lifestyle.

Desperately Seeking Soulmate: Escaping Twin Flames is anchored by a Vanity Fair reporter who discusses her research into TFU. Along with her perspective, including footage from an in-person visit to the couple’s home, you’ll also see interviews with Shaleia’s father and Jeff’s former best friend. You’ll learn a bit more about their childhoods and hear from other past and present members and their families. This docuseries was actually released a month prior to the Netflix one, and it’s worth watching as well if you were fascinated (and horrified) with Escaping Twin Flames.

The Fall (2013-2016)

A hidden gem of a series, Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan star in this deliciously binge-able crime drama. She’s Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson and he’s Paul Spector, a serial killer who ironically works as a bereavement counsellor during the day. The Fall is about the dance between Stella and Paul. She has her suspicions that there’s something more sinister than meets the eye of this respectable husband and father. He, however, continues to evade her, killing again and again to satisfy his twisted desires, his family none the wiser as to his extracurricular activities.

Set in Belfast, the RTE One and BBC Two series is unique in that the killer’s identity is revealed immediately. The focus in The Fall instead is on the psychology of the perpetrator, his motivations, and how he manages that delicate balance between the person he pretends to be and who he really is. Anderson, meanwhile, shines in her role as a determined detective operating on her intuition.
