Netflix Series Recommendation: How to Become a Tyrant (2021-)

I saw this on Netflix and thought what’s the purpose of airing a show about how to become a tyrant. Let’s not give any more motivation for people to be tyrants. I changed my mind when I watched the first episode. There’s some good information within them. People that want to become tyrants will find a way to be a tyrant or try to become one. People that don’t want to expend the energy and later kill some of their followers and confidants will remain average (most of us who are sane and semi-normal). The six episodes of How to Become a Tyrant cover power, rivals, terror, control, society, and rules and focus on the so-called tyrants we all know in history: Hitler of Germany, Hussein of Iraq, Amin of Uganda, Stalin of Russia, Gaddafi of Libya, and Kim dynasty of North Korea. The narrator is Peter Dinklage with additional commentary by various professors of political science, history, psychology, and more. There is animation throughout the episodes which breaks the severity of the content. For all you Tyrion Lannister fans, you’ll watch it just to hear Peter Dinklage. Watch the trailer below to get a glimpse.

I rate How to Become a Tyrant FOUR FINGERS at 90%.
